Hey everybody! It's Christine with my sneak peek on Black Beard's Loot.  (You're lucky - we all chose different images, so you have a lot to see :) ) This birdie is so cute! I thought the sentiment from Wings Of Hope would be funny in this scene.

One last look...

I always feel sentimental at the end of the month as we transition to the new stamp sets. Don't get me wrong, I am usually DYING to play with and show off the new ones... but sometimes I'm just not quite ready to say goodbye to the ones I have been loving so much for the last 30 days... So here is my "see you later" to the June sets... but I know it's not a "farewell"... because they are too darn awesome!

It's almost here! A farwell and happy hello!

We are so sad to see 2 of our amazing designers leaving us. They have made so many wonderful creations using TAWS.. We wish them both the best and know that they will soar in whatever they choose to do...

 

With that being said.. we would like to welcome back a previous DT member!! We know you love her just as much as we do :)



Can you believe that June is almost over? Where did it go?! Well I am super excited for one thing.. come tomorrow we start our sneak peeks.. if you are new to our blog.. WELCOME!! Our sneak peeks are when the Design Team creates AMAZING projects for you to drool over, get excited, and see a little peek of what new sets will be coming the 1st of the next month..

All About Tropical

Kim here!!  As I am sitting here crafting on a sweltering summer day, I made myself feel better by creating a little beach scene and imaging myself in the cool water!  The board is from Tropical Hideaway and the sentiment is from all about YOU.


Stacey here using Tropical Hideaway and All About You, too!  Great minds, Kim!  The fabulous flower was stamped on some patterned paper, fussy cut, colored with Copics, and embellished with 
Stickles!  


Jen here and I went with a butterfly, but that could be tropical right?  He's from Awesome Blossom and layered on some wide washi tape and highlighted with some enamel dots.  And I made my own sentiment from Alphabet Soup!


We hope you have time to get crafty today!
