December/January 2012 Release Day 1

Hello! Can you believe it's December already? And, it's that time again...Release Week! For those of you that are new to Wplus9, we will spend the next couple of days getting up close and personal with the products that we will be releasing this month. All previewed items will be available for purchase on December 5th at www.wplus9.com.

Before we get started, I want to announce that starting with this release, we will now be releasing new stamps every other month. Don't worry, we still have tons of ideas and new stamps coming, just on a little different schedule.

So let's get started with our Dec/Jan release shall we. This release is all about Valentine's Day. And today's stamp set is amazing. Let's face it, most of the time we are creating for our men when it comes to this holiday, or for our children's classmates. This set is gender neutral, packed with mix and match graphics and sentiments, bold, classic, and 6"x8" of fun!

Love You More

  • is a 6x8 clear photopolymer stamp set
  • contains 19 stamps; 2 word art images and 17 mix-and-match sentiments and images
  • will be available for purchase December 5th for just $19

First up, I knew I wanted to use the word art image that started the set. It's a little something I used to write inside cards to my husband. "I love you more today than yesterday...but not as much as tomorrow." He can always count on getting at least one card a year with this hand written inside. Our ten year anniversary is also this Valentine's Day, so I decided to create a scrapbook page to mark this milestone. Whew! Ten years. Shouldn't we get a trophy or something?!

I stitched the gray patterned paper to the bottom half of the page to create a pocket. Inside I tucked a journaling card I created using the primary journal background lines from Classroom Backgrounds, and another of my favorite pictures of us. I will continue to add things here and there before our anniversary.

On the right side I stamped the large word art image in red. I love this image. Talk about quick and easy! I added some little die cut envelopes to the bottom corner (more on these later this week).

I added some little sentiments here and there, "Today, Tomorrow, Forever" to the top.

And "Heart You More" to the bottom.

I think the thing I am enjoying most about this set is how great it is for creating one layer cards. With one stamp and a little selective inking, you can create this:

Or this:

Too easy? How about 2 stamps and some clever scoring? Pair the heart bubble image with the bird from The Birds & The Bees for a cute little set of mini note cards.

Still too clean and simple? OK, use the word art as a starting point for a card that looks incredibly detailed and involved, but still only uses one stamp.

I have only scratched the surface of this set. Be sure to stop by the Design Team's blogs to see what they have done.

Would you like to win Love You More, and The Birds and The Bees? Just leave me a comment by 9:00 AM EST December 2nd to enter. I will select one random winner from all comments. Winners will be posted here.

The fun continues tomorrow with another heartfelt set and coordinating die, see you then!

Great scrap page. And yes, you deserve a metal for 10 years. Congrats on both 10 yrs and this release. SO fun. I have my coffee like you suggested but it is being neglected. Love all the samples, I just can't get enough.
