June 2011 Release: Group Post

It's Release Day! Our June release is now available at I know I've had a blast gettin' my party on with Pile It On. But the girls have been doing their share of partying as well. Oh how do I love these talented ladies? Let me count the ways:

1. Jinny Newlin

I love her use of Design Basics: Backgrounds I tucked behind that beautiful bow. The glittery icing and the vellum banner with the embossed sentiment is just the icing on the cake.

2. Kerrianne Gwin

I'm a sucker for the broken journaling line paired with the fun banner. The little bows are the perfect finishing touch. Kerrianne is always so fearless when it comes to color and patterns. Bravo!

3. Lea Lawson

I really love that every time I visit Lea's blog, I can count on finding something that makes me go "why didn't I think of that?!". Seriously. The little loopies in the twine paired with the detached "pennants" (which are really ice cream cones)...a fantastic touch that takes this from "been there, done that", to "gotta try that"! And did you notice here "exclamation point"? She's on fire!

4. Savitri Wilder

Savitri really has a way with simply chic. Love the way she's punched holes in the pennants to string her twine through, and the fact that she has intentionally layered and bunched them together. Her work always seems so effortless, kind of like that girl, you know the one...the one that rolls out of bed and without even trying, looks fabulous (cough, Kerrianne, cough).

5. Elise Durenberger

OK, I literally squealed when I saw this. If I were to be reincarnated, it would be as a stamp, and not just any stamp...a stamp in Ms. Elise's craft room please! The thought, the time, the creativity just oozes from everything she does. I can't believe she created this super fun collage using just Pile It On for all but 3 stamps! Can you find them, can you name the set they come from?

6. Jean Martin

First I am amazed at how Jean has taken this traditionally fun and graphic stamp set, and incorporated it into her shabby-chic style. I will admit, I feared that I might be throwing her a curve ball for her first stamp set on the Design Team. I didn't fear whether she could handle it, I worried that she would hate me. LOL But I have got to bow down and admire how amazingly well she has showcased just how versatile this set is. Did you see her samples yesterday? Amazing.

7. Cristina Kowalczyk

I am convinced that Cristina could craft with with her eyes closed and one hand tied behind her back! Her color choice is divine, execution is flawless, and the balance couldn't be more perfect. I especially love the fact that she chose black for her sentiment. The heavy color draws the eye down and keeps the design from feeling top-heavy.

If you've made it this far...CONGRATS! Sorry to ramble on, but the Design Team is so amazing and I don't always get to comment on their posts during the release. So I like to take a little extra time when I can and show them some love. Thank you so much for joining us for another fantastic release!
