Hello everyone! I hope you are enjoying the May Our Daily Bread Designs Blog Hop! The sticks in the bread basket are so excited this month about all the sets being released! I know you will enjoy this hop and will love all the new sets!

If you got here from Debi’s Blog you are in the right place! If not, you might want to start at the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog and hop from there!


The Hop will run from 8am EDT May 1 until 8pm EDT. May 2. The winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on May 3.  For this hop, there will be FIVE Prizes of $25.00 Gift Certificates toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread designs store!

Here is what you need to do to be entered in the drawing:
Leave comments for each designer on each blog Return to the ODBD Blog and leave a comment, telling us you completed the hop and noting any blogs you were unable to comment on. Answer the question on the ODBD blog



Now on to my project.  I am so thrilled that ODBD is releasing three sets of sentiments today along with a few more must have items!  These wonderful trio of sentiments was designed by Lorelie Kim to coordinate with the Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio!  These sentiments are so fabulous and just wonderful to have on hand to add to any card or project.   With so many gift-giving occasions coming up in the next few months with Mother's Day, Father's Day, Graduations, and Weddings,  I  decided to use all the newly released tag sets to create a gift set ensemble.    However, instead of the cards all finished, I created an ensemble to be assembled by the recipient.  I stamped, diecut, embossed, and put together some of the card assembly.  However, I left a couple of panels, a border strip, and sentiment of choice with ribbon to be completed as needed.  Each item is tucked snug in its own section.  I think there are some people that will enjoy putting together their own cards and choosing a sentiment of choice.  I am using the newly released Mini Tags 1, Mini Tags 2, Mini Tags, 3, and Ribbon Tags Trio die cuts.  I am also using Porch, Vintage Border Die, and Vintage Border Background sets for my project. The porch set was designed by Dina Kowal!  Gorgeous!  For this project I just used the border stamp image in the set that coordinates with the Vintage Border Die.  I just love the border stamp and die that cuts it out perfectly.  I used it several times during my project and I know it is one I will reach for often!  I  want to add, that while this set is black and white, the recipient can choose to color in sections of the Vintage stamp,border, or framed tags to make it even more personable. 

Speaking of Dina!  She is next on the hop!   From here...hop on over to Dina's Blog! 



As always, thanks so much for stopping by!
