Howdy friends, it's Layle back with you today!
I'm so excited to kick off our Winter 2014 Release Reveal Week. We've been busy, busy, busy working on some amazing new products to share with you and now's the time when we can finally share!
Today is the first of six full days! of our reveal week, so be sure to check back each day for more goodies as well as a chance to win our new products before you can buy them! You can also follow us on Instagram at simplestories_ for behind the scenes photos I'll be sharing as we prepare for the Craft and Hobby Association Mega Show later this week where we'll showcase all of our new products to retailers.
OK, OK, I know what you're saying - "get on with it already, show us the goods"! Alrighty, hang on to your seats because here we go.....
Today we introduce you to DIY™ - Design It Yourself. DIY gives you the freedom to create your own elements to suit your personal style. Start with our basic 3x4 & 4x6 card, envelope, tag or pocket foundations, next add our kraft and/or office layers, then choose from our assortment of stickers, stamps and embellishments to create your own personal work of art!
How you doing so far? Hanging in there? I know, it's a lot of awesomeness to digest, right?! But wait, there's more! It's ok if you need to go grab a drink and come back, I'll wait....
