TSG Sneak Peek - Lighten Up



Know someone who takes everything too seriously? Or maybe you know someone who needs a little pick-me-up? This set illustrated by our fabulous Torico will "brighten" anyone’s day! There are not only a variety of lamp bases and shades, but there are also some heartfelt and humorous sentiments to coordinate perfectly with the images. There She Goes is coming out with some absolutely fantastic sets this month and this one is one of my faves!!  I'm the first stop on the hop today so grab your coffee and sit, relax and enjoy the eye candy we have for you today. 





As soon as I saw this set, I thought retro.... So I searched through my mounds and mounds of DP (yes I have a DP addiction) and found this Basic Grey DP from the Marjolaine line.  I loved the circle patterns throughout it so I decided to mimic that with my layout as well. The image was watercolored with my Tombow Markers (surprising right? LOL).  This week's challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow is to make a card with circles and looking at my card... there's a lot of circles there. What do you think?

Lighten Up is a 4X6 stamp set that includes a total of 20 stamps and will sell for $15.

*** The next stop on the hop today is Ann.  Check out what amazing eye candy she has in store for you.

Would you like a chance to win "Lighten Up"? Here’s what you need to do- go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their Lighten Up Blog Hop Challenge post. After you have finished checking out the eye candy and have left some love, return to the TSG Blog and add your name to the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this Blog Hop Challenge post. A winner will be chosen randomly using a random number generator to receive their very own Lighten Up stamp set. The winner will be announced Saturday (Apr. 30th) during the Release Party Chat.
