LPS Preview: {Bound by the Heart}

Hey all!

Today is the first of two preview days for the two BEAUTIFUL new releases at The Little Paper Shop!

In addition, our monthly DT challenge is always the 15th of the month...this is basically just a fun little challenge that the LPSDT gals issue to each other. This month, it was Mel's turn, and she issued us a challenge to "Stitch it up!" We could either sew, stitch, or Faux sew on our cards.

This month, since the 15th marks our first preview day, we would LOVE you guys to play along! Be sure to check out the LPS BLOG today for details! You could WIN a FREE stamp set, so see you there!

My sample card for our new set, {Bound by the Heart}, uses faux stitching. A few weeks ago, my friend Jami was the featured stamper on SCS. I was so excited for her, but my week was SO crazy busy that I didn't get to play along with the challenge to CASE one of her cards, so I decided I still wanted to pay tribute to this AWESOME honor by using her card's layout for my card today. You can check out Jami's card HERE. Congrats again, Jami....better late than never right? LOL!!!
Well, I hope you guys enjoy our first of two preview days today. Be sure to check back for another post today...it's a BUSY Sunday today on my blog! See you guys soon, and stay tuned tomorrow for another LPS preview, too!

Hugs,
Jessica :)
