{Neat & Tangled} January Release Week: Day 3 + Giveaway!


It's Day 3 of Neat & Tangled's January Release and, today, the design team is featuring the Pixellated Heart Die and Easter Journaling stamp set. Both of these products will be available for purchase when the January release goes live on Friday.



Miriam designed the Pixellated Heart Die and it's really cool! My son went crazy over it because it reminds him of LEGO and Minecraft. ;) I don't typically decorate the insides of my cards but I will have to use this a lot for Valentine's and general love cards. You can do many things with it.


I trimmed it off the pop-up portions and used the top surface on the front of my card as an outline heart. The smaller hearts are from Scored Shapes and Little Bits. All of the patterned papers are from Crate Paper's Shine paper pad.


Here's what the full die looks like. I didn't snip apart the die so the insert cuts out the centre of the heart. If you remove it with wire snips, you will have a solid surface to stamp or write on. The sentiment inside the heart is from Miriam's Origami Map stamp set.


There's a GIVEAWAY! Be sure to leave a comment on the Neat & Tangled Blog for your chance to win the Easter Journaling stamp set! There will ALSO be a $25 gift certificate drawn from all comments left on the design team blogs so be sure to leave one here, too! :)

All release products will be available for purchase on Friday and I'll be updating my links at that time. See you again tomorrow!
