December/January Release Week – Lots of Love

December 1, 2012



Hi everyone!   Welcome to day one of Avery Elle’s December/January Release week.  Over the next 5 days we will be featuring projects made by our AMAZING design team and two fabulous guest designers.  We have 4 new stamp sets that will be available for purchase in our store, www.averyelle.com, on December 5th.  Don’t forget to check the bottom of this post for our latest giveaway to celebrate the festivities.  Let’s get started.

I am so excited to introduce our newest 4x6” clear photopolymer stamp set called Lots of Love that will retail for $15.  Our Lots of Love stamp set is perfect for Project Life projects,making cards or scrapbook pages your favorite Valentine.  The fresh sentiments in this set are sure to be used time and again.  The large heart images measure: 1" x 7/8"; Big, Bold, Small, Italic sentiment measures: 1 3/8" x 1 3/8", I Love You This Much sentiment measures: 2 3/4" x 5/8"; XOXO sentiment measures:  15/16" x 5/16" **This set has FREE matching cut files**





I am thrilled to introduce our guest designers for this month.  They are Julie from Julie’s OpenWindow and Amber from Damask Love. How lucky are we?  I am so honored that they are joining us this month!!
"My name is Amber Kemp-Gerstel and Miami, Florida is home (though I’ll always have a soft spot for my SF Bay Area stomping grounds!). By day, I am a child psycholgist, but once the workday is done, you can find me crafting like a madwoman. Some of my loves include colorful shoes, egg salad on pumpernickel and late night reruns of 1980’s sitcoms (Golden Girls, anyone?) "

Senior Design Team

Julie is a busy crafter! She is the Design Team Coordinator for The Twinery and the Creator / Design Team Coordinator of challenge site The Playdate Cafe. She had a long crafty resume and we are happy to have her with us this month.



Amber created this cute bookmark with one of my favorite sentiments in today's set.  I just love how she made a little “tassel” out of the chevron heart!  I do believe I have just found the perfect valentine for my daughter’s to give to their classes this year.  Be sure to check out Amber’s blog for more details.




There is a whole lot of love on this next card by Julie.  I think that the color combination is so sweet.  I am sure that the recipient will be thrilled to receive such a “lovely” card. ;)  Check out Julie’s blog for more information.


Just look at the fantastic card that JJ created.  Chalkboard images are all the rage and I love the depth that she created in this card.  I do believe that this just might be the perfect set for this technique – I may be a little biased though.  ;) Be sure to check out her blog here for more details.


How sweet is this card by Chunyuan? I love how she used different patterned paper to back each sentiment.  How smart is that?!  I know that she has more amazing projects to show you on her blog so be sure to check them out here. You don’t want to miss them!


Heather created this clean and simple one layer card and I just “adore” it! ;)  The shaded repetition of the heart images creates an amazing composition.  It takes talent to make something like this look so effortless.  For more details and amazing projects be sure to check out her blog here.
