OCTOBER 1st--New Release at La-La Land Crafts!

Happy Saturday Everyone!! Y'all READY for THIS!!!!

Today is a special day because it's World Card Making Day, a day for the card making community to unite and celebrate the connection and creativity that is the heart of card making! When it was founded in 2006, it was exclusive to the Paper Crafts magazine audience only. However, due to its popularity, the "holiday" grew to include everyone world-wide. Celebrating the start of its sixth year, World Card Making Day is celebrated annually on the first Saturday in October!

AND, because it's WCMD and October 1st......La-La Land Crafts is bringing you a NEW RELEASE!! Did y'all hear me?!?! That means 8 brand spanking NEW images!! I know I say this about every release, but these new images.....TOTALLY ROCK! They've even introduced a Harajuku Collection!! (do you see me smiling from ear to ear?!)

Y'all are in for an amazing treat, so head on over to the La-La Land Crafts Blog to see ALL the gorgeous creations from my talented DT sisters. Then RUN over to the La-La Land Crafts Store to snag your own cuties!! They are currently available for Pre-Order, and will ship on October 15th!!

The first cutie I'm showcasing is called AUTUMN MARCI. I think she's oh so tres chic!! When I saw her Beret, I remembered I had a similar hat in Leather and Houndstooth, can you believe it?!

Coloring Medium: Copics & Chalk
Skin: E000, R20, chalk
Hair: E29, E37, E33
Hat: Houndstooth Ribbon, Black Copic, Glossy Accents
Jacket/Boots: C7, C3, chalk, Glossy Accents
Shirt/Skirt/Gloves/Socks: R81, chalk, stickles
Houndstooth scarf/belt: Stamped

I was on the search for some dp with the houndstooth pattern and couldn't find any. But at my local Hobby Lobby, I did find an awesome stamp set from Glitz Design called Distressing (D2961) and it had a stamp with the houndstooth pattern...YIPPEE! So I stamped the pattern over a second image of Autumn Marci and then paper-pieced her scarf and belt.

Here's my French-inspired Easel Card. :) The dps came from MME Lost & Found Madison Avenue & Market Street (love these 6x6 pads!). The post card dp is from the Paper Studio. The Houndstooth ribbon is from Hobby Lobby. I even used it to ribbon-piece her beret! Then I colored the bottom of her beret with a black Copic and topped it with Glossy Accents.

The large flower is from Jolee's boutique and the little one on the bow is from WOC. The large Eiffel Tower on the top of the card is a 3-D sticker from La Petites by the Paper Studio. The Eiffel Tower on the bottom part of the card is a stamp Stampabilites (IR1028). I bought the gold rhinestones by Studio 18 at Michaels.

My next cutie patootie image reminds me of my son and is called BEDTIME LUKA. Isn't he adorable?!?!?!

Skin: E000, chalk
Hair: E37, E33, E02
Clothes: Paper-pieced, shaded with black chalk

These gorgeous dps are also MME Lost and Found Christmas. I just added some ribbon from my stash and made a double loop bow with my bow easy. Because the dps were so beautiful, I didn't add much to cover them up. I also used the same gold rhinestones in the corners.

I hope you enjoy this new release as much as I do! The images are so AWESOME and I know that all of these cuties are going to find their way into my home! I can't wait to create with ALL of them!! This may be my favorite release yet (although I think I say that about each of them)!

Remember you can purchase your own at the La-La Land Crafts Store! Head over there and pre-order yours now so you can be one of the first ones to own them! :)

Have a great weekend!!
