August Release Day 2: More Le Cirque

Welcome back to Day 2 of our August Release. Today we are taking another look at Le Cirque, the Le Cirque Die, and the Scalloped Oval Die. If you missed Day 1 you can find more details about all of these here. Yesterday I showed you how perfect this set was for creating party ensembles. Today, I wanted to show you some totally different looks that really showcase the flexibility of Le Cirque.

First up, how about a super feminine, uber trendy yet classic birthday card.

What I love about this image is how perfect it is for all ages. This could easily be used for a little ballerina's birthday, or an older classy girlfriend. Paired with patterned papers from the Uncommon collection by Authentique, it has such an Audrey-esque vibe. Don't you think?

Here you can see some up close detail of the Scalloped Oval Die and the scalloped oval frame included in Le Cirque. I just love the design range this frame has. Yesterday it was very juvenile in the birthday party decorations, and here it is so sophisticated. It really is a timeless design that fits any design genre. That gorgeous sentiment is a little preview of the set we will be introducing tomorrow.

Next up, I wanted to showcase my favorite image from the set, the elephant.

Isn't that just darling? I die cut the elephant using the Le Cirque Die and then stamped the elephant image. Then I paired it with Pile It On and Kisses & Cuddles. I stamped the journaling line and hung the pennants (which is actually an ice cream cone) from it, all from Pile It On. For my sentiment I paired "Celebrate" from Le Cirque with "Baby Boy" from Kisses & Cuddles. This is one of those cards that is perfect to have on hand as it could be used for a Birth Congrats card or a 1st birthday.

I thought the papers from the Schoolhouse collection by October Afternoon were a perfect match for this image.

That's all I have today, but the Design Team has more for you:

  4. I feel SO repetitive here, but it stands repeating - I love WORKING with your images, and seeing how each of the designy ladies interpret and play with your designs, so VERY much - every month, it's somehow better and better! But the privilege of watching YOU take your designs to the HIGHEST levels of inspiration - is POSITIVELY HUGE! Thanks for WOWING us, again, and AGAIN! SUCH a thrill! You've gone and done it, AGAIN, sweet girl!
