TSG Daily Grind Blog Hop!

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

Hello and welcome to the first blog hop for the May releases!

Today the Trendsetters are showcasing the super caffeinated set called Daily Grind! If you've stopped by my blog from super sweet Pam's blog, then you're on the right track, but if you haven't and would like to see some amazing cards using this brand new set (and perhaps win your very own set), then head over to the There She Goes blog and start your journey there.

This set is a must have for all the coffee aficionados, like me, out there! It's got all the images that go along with coffee drinking and then some. In all, there are 35 individual stamps and you can even mix and match them with some of TSG's previously released sets (eg. Let's Get Together) It's 6"x8" in size and it will be released along with two other sets on Saturday, April 24th after the release party, which starts at 9pm EST in the TSG forum.

I went out on a limb and did something a little different with this set. Normally I gravitate towards the main image of most sets, but this time I resisted and used some of the smaller images instead. I borrowed Taylor's Sketch (TESC109) for the layout and because there are cupcakes in this set, I used Basic Grey's Nook and Pantry collection of papers to create a warm and cozy kind of card.

Your next stop is back to the There She Goes blog. Remember to leave your name in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of the post so you can be in with a chance to win your very own Daily Grind set!
