My Favorite Things October Release Party!

Hello and welcome to the My Favorite Things October release party! Tonight we're celebrating the release of the new holiday products that we've been sharing all week - all of the new products are in the store and available for purchase! Yay!

For my card tonight I used the new Lip Balm Window & Frame Die-namics along with the previously released Essential Sentiment Rip Strip Die-namics to share how you can create a lip balm project and not have to completely take it apart to get the lip balm out.


I created a winter scene on the front of my card with the Polar Pals stamp set, the Icebergs Die-namics and a sentiment from the Sending Smooches stamp set, stamped onto a Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strip banner. 

I diecut the Lip Balm Window from the snow area and adhered my Lip Balm pouch inside to hold my coordinating lip balm that I made with patterned paper.


To be able top easily get the lip balm out, I used the Essential Sentiment Rip Strips Die-namics and die cut it into the front of the card base before adhering my panel. Just make sure to die cut it directly under where the lip balm window is. I created a video sharing how I created this card and you can watch it HERE if you want to see how I put the card together.


This is a great way to use the new Lip Balm products on tags and cards and ensure that the project doesn't get wrecked when you're trying to remove the lip balm. :)

I really hope you enjoyed the release projects shared this week and are excited to start holiday crafting! I would love to know what your favourite products from the release are. Happy shopping! :)
