Gina K. Preview Day 3: Welcome Home


 new address
Today I bring you a sample from the new set illustrated by Rupa Shevde for Gina K. Designs called Welcome Home.  This set is a fun collection of images you can use to welcome a new person to your neighborhood, congratulate someone on moving to their new home or to announce you’re moving!  That is what I used on my sample – since this past weekend John and I finally signed our closing documents on our construction loan, we are well on our way to building our home on our land!  We have a closing date of October 16 which is a mere 6 months away – everyone says we can build within that time frame and I believe it’s doable, it’s just a little nerve-wracking since it’s our first time to build from scratch!  We are so excited about it at the same time!  I chose to make a postcard announcement to send to friends and put ‘our new address’ directly on the moving truck!    Of course since we’re going to live on acreage, our neighbors will not be this close – thank God (nothing against city living, it’s just not something we want anymore).

Here is the back of the invitation, it’s already addressed to send to Melanie – ha!  This was so simple to do in Word and printing on layering weight pure luxury cardstock.  You can either send just like this or slip in an envelope!  I used the new turquoise sea cardstock as the base.  

Designers participating in previews using Welcome Home and Sew Pretty:

I hope to see YOU at our Release Party  on Thursday evening on StampTV.  We would LOVE to have you join us for the fun!
There will be challenges, contest questions, chatter, as well as tons of samples from the Design Team members from 7-10 (CDT) all leading to the new products being available in GinaK's online store at 10pm.
