Gina K Preview and School Begins!

Welcome to Day 2 of the Gina K Previews! Tonight the design team is using Farm Life (illustrated by Theresa), Boo! (illustrated by Asela), and Faithful Florals (illustrated by Tami)!

I am a sucker for a good Halloween set and so my sample today features Boo!: I love love love the banner Boo in this set. (I also love that there is a banner of cobwebs in the set too!) Tooo fun!
There are lots of images in this set to create a spooktacular scene - I used the little jack-o-lanterns on this card, wanting to keep the focus on the sentiment. The background of the front panel is a transparency web that is adhered over the Kraft cardstock. The front panel is about 1.5 inches shorter than the back panel so the green on the inside shows when the card is closed.


For more samples with the stamp sets being previewed tonight, please check out these participating designer's links:


Reminder--the Release party is this Thursday night, August 26 from 7-10 central time. All of the new products featured this week on our blogs will be available for purchase online through GinaK Designs right after the party at 10 pm. We hope you'll make plans now to be able to join us in all the fun!

In my other life :), my kiddos ALL started school today. Cara (9th grade), Lauren (kindergarten, sob!) and Ben (2nd grade). Here they are just before leaving this morning:

Since I am the lunch bunch coordinator at Ben/Lauren's school...I was there today for all the lunches and both had happy smiles for me! (Yeah!) Cannot wait to greet them coming off the bus with the cupcakes I made for their "first day of school special treat!" (Lauren's choice!)

Thanks for stopping by!

Great card - great stamps! Nice picture of the kids, too. How awesome you got smiles from them at school! I bet they loved their cupcakes, too. I can't believe school has started down there already.

Allison said...

Great card! Love the spiderweb and how the front panel is smaller so the green shows!

Starla said...

Love the card!! Don't know why I'm so excited to see spider webs....hate the little buggers IRL!!LOL
I'm very impressed your kiddos let you take a first day of school picture. I have taken one in the same spot in front of the school since my oldest was in kindergarten. This year (8th) he nixed it (even after I said we'd get there early so NO ONE would see). The youngest(4th) just said, "ditto for me mom". Sob, sob....
