Thank you for visiting and for taking time out of your day to read my first ever blog post! I've been planning to start a blog for quite some time and thanks to Concord & 9th I decided to just do it already! (Whether I feel like my website is ready or not)
Concord & 9th is one of my FAV vendors. Their products are so unique and well-thought out that they truly allow for creative and custom designs. I just recently placed an order with them and received their gracious Seriously, Thank You stamp set free gift (with a $60 qualifying purchase). When I saw their August challenge come across my blog feed, "Anything Goes" encouraging us to love our Concord & 9th products, I knew I had to participate!
Please note, if you spend $75 or more, you do get free shipping. Unfortunately I found this out after placing my order or I would have added the coordinating Love Notes stamp set to my order. But next time!!
Now, on to my projects! I truly showed my Concord & 9th products some love so I apologize, this is going to be a really long first post!
My next project uses the free gift, Seriously, Thank You, received with my order. I used some of the new Distress Oxide inks (LOVE, LOVE, if you haven't tried these inks yet you must!!). The paper is from Echo Park, I think I got it at Tuesday Morning.
These next cards are made with the Celebrations Card Die which I've had for a while but it is on sale now!! The center flaps fit together to close the card. Greg from Concord & 9th has a great video showing how the die works. (shared after the photos)
These next cards are clean and simple. They use the Double-Cut Alphabet dies that are so fun to work with. I purchased the bundle which came with some fun backgrounds to stamp directly on the letters or put behind the die-cut letters.
I hope you made it to the end of this very long post and are inspired to check out some Concord & 9th products. Thanks so much for stopping by my brand-spankin-new blog!
Happy 2nd Anniversary Concord & 9th, I Seriously Cannot Thank You Enough for motivating me to initiate my blog and be inspired to enter a challenge!
Greg and Angela seem like genuine, fun, good-hearted people. I was introduced to them on the Crafty Chats (that I miss so much!) through Online Card Classes. Here is their video:
