August New Releases!

Hello, everyone!!! Welcome to August! Doesn't it seem like just yesterday when we were revealing the new July sets?! Hopefully your summer has been full of fun with equal parts of rest and relaxation too! Now that summer is nearly over, it's time to send the kiddos back to school and head back to your craft room! The August new releases are sew fun (pun intended) that you will be counting the days until you can start creating with them!!

This month's theme is all about patchwork, sewing, stitching, needlework, and above all else....God and family! When you wrap yourself up in a hand-made quilt, created with love, can't you feel God wrapping his loving arms around you?! When we think of stitching arts, most of us have loving memories of grandmothers, mothers, aunts, or sisters sharing stories and love with us as their hands created their beautiful works!

Our first set to reveal today is "Sew Special"....I just love the play on words for the title and the two sentiment stamps! The rocking chair and quilt image are beautifully drawn and very fun to color! One of the two scripture stamps speaks of comfort and rest, while the other is honoring to the Godly women in our lives.

Since 3-dimensional images are sew popular now, ODBD is also releasing the "Rocking Chair Die" to cut out the rocking chair image from the "Sew Special" set....even the tiny sections are cut out so that there is no need for your craft knife! Each custom cutting die comes with a "guide" to help you line up the HERE to see a quick and easy instructional video.

I am so happy to announce that we have two new tag sets this month, which were designed for the previously released "Tag Die". Stamp the tag frame, then cut it out perfectly with the Tag Die.....sweet!!! This "Pincushion Tag Set" features the popular tomato pincushion, two lovely sentiments, and the most darling stitches around the edge!

There is also a coordinating tomato "Pincushion" single stamp and the custom "Pincushion Die" to cut it out perfectly! Please note that the single "Pincushion" stamp is larger than the image on the tag stamp.

The second of the tag sets, "Spool Tag Set", is just as fun, but sports a spool, scissors, and a measuring tape in the corner, plus two more sentiments, and a straight stitch around the border.

Coordinating with the "Spool Tag Set" is the single "Spool & Tape" stamp, plus the "Spool & Tape Die" to cut out the image in a matter of seconds. Just as was mentioned about the Pincushion stamp, the Spool & Tape is larger than the image on the tag set.

Another exciting addition to the ODBD die line, is the "Fence Border Die"! This die is six inches long and cuts out a perfect fence in one shot...I love it!!

While I'm on the subject of ODBD's awesome cutting dies, there are also two new custom cutting dies this month which cut out the images from previously released sets. The first is the "Sparrow Die" which cuts out the sparrow image from the "He Watches Me" set pictured below. I personally am very excited about this die because I have cut out this image by hand in the past and it took me way over an hour! The new dies are designed to cut out the stamped image in less than a minute!! Yay!!

The next die is the "Butterfly Branch Die" which cuts out the gorgeous artsy butterfly image from the previously released "Faith" set....I can't wait to get my hands on this one!!! This image is going to look incredible popped up in 3d!! Thanks, Kelley, for cutting out the cut-work!!!

Next up is the new addition to "The Blessings Collection", called "Sewn With Love". These three beautiful sentiments are sure to bring about "the warm and fuzzies"!

I am happy to announce that there are two new sets to add to the "Full of Grace" collection! Both of these sets, "Quilter", and "Weave in Faith" have meaningful sentiments which show that God's love is woven through our lives from start to finish, just as our love is woven through the hand-made gifts we create for others!

Last, but certainly not the least, is a beautiful new stamp from "The Garden Collection", called "Flower Border". This stamp was designed to coordinate with the largest die in the Spellbinders Labels 18 die set. This border is perfect for your sentiment or scripture stamps.....there is even enough room to layer a smaller Labels 18 die inside! There are many possibilities with this one stamp! Can't wait to see what you can do with it!!!

We at Our Daily Bread designs are really excited about these new releases and hope that you are too! Each month Kelley works hard to provide only the best product for her team and her customers. Most of the monthly releases take up to six months from start to finish...there is much planning and fine tuning before a product is ready. Thank you to Kelley and the ODBD crew for working with a spirit of excellence in all you do! You guys are the best!!!

Thanks for visiting with us this morning! Make sure you come back at 8am EDT for the August New Release Blog Hop! In the meantime, head over to the ODBD store, where the New Releases are ready and waiting for you. Don't forget....the "Bread Basket Bundle" is 15% off when you purchase the entire new release!

Have a blessed week!!!
