Calling all bibliophiles...

We are back with group post #2 at Papertrey Ink for the month of July to show you some new book-related products that will be available July 15th at 10pm EST at www.papertreyink.com.

I was inspired by this bookshelf quilt I found on Pinterest and thought the books would be cute on a teacher card! So I added the Apple Prints stamps and dies in with the new book themed stamps and dies. On one of the cards, I used the books horizontally and the other vertically.
On this card, I used the different sentiments on several books to create one big message. Such a cute set of stamps! I really like this idea. Fun way to add lots of color on the differing books.


A Favorite Book card:

Couple of pics of the card set. 
I read the directions wrong and was supposed to make a card with the Book Cover Card dies... ooops! Sorry!!

Think I like the vertical books the best. They look more like books. What do you think?

Having the authors name on the spine with the quote is so cool - your cards are fun to look at.

Hi Danielle,

Funny how small details often add a noticeable addition that makes the card stand out. The small apple did it for this card...........SWEET AS CAN BE!!!

Cariños,
