La-La Land Crafts August 2015 Release!

There is no doubt about it, La-La Land Crafts make the most amazing dies. They cut like a dream and have so many amazing designs!! Just check out their new die release (and their gorgeous new MARCI, LUKA, and MOLLI stamps if you are a colorer!!!)

I did a card and two layouts for this release. I will start with my rather clean and simple card featuring the new Koi Circle Die

I matted the vintage fishing image on the Koi Circle die using the Stitched Nested Circle Die to cut a perfect circle. I used the Stitched Elements flag die for the sentiments and added some of the new Seaweed Die cutouts to go along with the theme. For fun I added some twine to make it seem like the fisherman's pole had caught the fish!

For my next project I did a layout featuring several of the new dies. The dies seemed to fit a formal elegant theme, so I chose to use a vintage wedding photo. In the corners of my layout I used the Scroll Corner Die  for a bit of elegance to frame the main image.

Here you can see where I used the Scroll Bracket Die as an elegant matte under my image, which I had cut out using the Stitched Elements oval die. You can also get a close up of the gorgeous Prima flowers I used and the mask and texture paste I used in the background.

As part of my flower cluster I used the Lanterns Die. I matted some black card underneath the lantern cut outs for added sumptuousness!

Finally, I used the Lanterns Banner Die as part of my title accent to add a little more elegance.

I had a lot of fun with my next layout! I had this great photo of my daughter Aisling from last summer and since some of the new release dies had a mermaid/under the sea kind of theme to them, I decided she could be my little mermaid for this layout!!

I piled the layout out with flowers and shells and here you can see the Seaweed Die cut outs mixed in with the flower cluster.

The cute seahorse star and sea fern diecut pieces are all part of great little set, the Under the Sea die set!. They made perfect accents for this layout!

In this photo you can see a hint of the Seaweed Border Die that I have matted under the photo for some extra sea themed texture!

I think you'll agree there are some great new dies in this new release! If you are interested in purchasing them you can buy them in the store HERE!! Pop on over and get yours soon!!
