School Days and FREE Digi Stamps!

You can detect that barely-there-hint-of-fall-scent in the air.  It's time for school to start.  As a career educator, I'm always a little excited during this time of year.  I can't help myself...I get in the mood to go buy school supplies! That was always my favorite thing of the year.  I LOVED going to the TG&Y as a child and picking out my new school supplies.  It's become a science now. Lists were much simpler then.  Now, you have to have the designer brand school supplies to be cool!  But the love of school supplies still runs through my blood. As a young girl my favorite supply was the brand new box of crayons I would get every year...and the bigger the box the better. Now I love markers, colored pencils and my acrylics.  Just a big-girl crafter's obsession!

Sample by Diane
Uses: School Days (SD) Papers, SD Backgrounds, 
SD Supplies, SD Sentiments.
All are printed on Naturals Ivory cardstock.

And speaking of obsessions!  I did get a little carried away creating school-themed digi images.  I have 15 sets in my store today, just waiting for you to lay your crafty little hands on them.  I won't list them all here, but will show you the newest ones...and a couple of favorites.  To see the whole line go HERE.

Outline Set Sold Separately

Composite Designer Helen Phelps

I'm so excited that Helen Phelps has agreed to come on board at Daydream Designs as Composite Designer.  She has the most creative ideas for using our images, combining them to create printable, ready-to-go items for your cards, scrapbook pages...whatever!

Here's one I used and finished as a card topper in about 10 seconds! I just added a SD Sentiment, printed it out and layered it to a folded card. 

Think of the scrapbooking possibilities!  We are including a few photo mats in each of Helen's kits too.  You just layer the frame on top of a favorite photo and done!  The mat above uses an element from an all new set too...

Sample by Diane
Uses: School Days Outline set (Copic coloring and paper piecing),

Finally, I want to share another exciting product offered at my store.  Kris Breach and I are collaborating to combine sets to create our own KD-Kits....value packed kits when you have to have it all.  You can save a TON of money with these.
