If life is just a bowl of cherries. . .
Why aren't we eating pie all day long?
This FUN sentiment and bowl of cherries is from a wonderful NEW digital stamp company ~ Paper Fashions, Etc. And I'm excited to tell you that I've been asked to be on their very first Design Team, along with these talented designers:
Amy Johnson ~ Amy's Creative Pursuits
Andrea Budjack ~ Andrea's Creative Paper Trail
Diane Noble ~ Diane's Designs
Gayla O'Dell ~ Two Paper Divas
Melissa Rodgers ~ Two Paper Divas
Sarah Bigelow ~ Mustang Sarah's Creations
In case you haven't heard of Paper Fashions, let me tell you a little about them. The company opened their online doors in March of this year with a party that lasted a week! The three owners ~ Diane Noble, Gayla O'Dell and Melissa Rodgers each have their own personal blogs and *years* of combined experience as paper crafters. They have all been Stampin' Up! demonstrators, so they are quite familiar with what paper crafters love to use on their projects. They have each taught crafting classes for many years too, so their tutorials have just the right blend of inspiration and instruction--making the projects easy for you to replicate.
Paper Fashions provides a growing line of printable, re-sizable digital elements that are affordable and versatile. The elements are high quality so you can shrink them or enlarge them to fit your needs. Every printable element comes with clear instructions on how to resize.
My first exposure to Paper Fashions was a couple months ago when I was blog surfing and came across one of Diane's fabulous project tutorials. And then I saw her wonderful digital BINGO cards!
The set I've used for my "debut" is one of my favorites ~ Cherry Delights Bundle.

My card is a standard 4-1/4 x 5-1/2" using real red cardstock as the base. I've layered on a couple "slices" of the retired SU "Summer Picnic" designer paper and stitched it all together with my Janome Sew Mini. The bowl of cherries was colored with Copic markers and I've embellished with a little red button, a snippet of old olive twill ribbon and some brown and white baker's twine.
What I especially *love* about digital images is that you can print whatever size you need. I wanted my bowl of cherries to be the focal point on the front with the sentiment small enough to fit on the 1-1/2" round tag. Then on the inside, I printed the sentiment a little larger.
Now I want to encourage all of you to hop on over to the Paper Fashions store and see all they have to offer in Digital Stamps, Project Tutorials and Printable Elements! If you're like me, you may wonder about using digital stamps. I started out stamping several years ago with Stampin' Up! wood block stamps and still use most of them...along with all my clear acrylic stamps, cling stamps, etc. My love of paper crafting is why I'm adding digital stamps to my repertoire.
As always, I'm happy you stopped by and I hope you'll come back again soon. I'm looking forward to sharing more projects using the Paper Fashions digi images!
