Create with TLC New FREEBIE Promo Release


*UPDATE ON 7/24/2013*

I hope that your Tuesday is sailing along.  I feel like a duck with the off and on rain we are having today.  I am popping in to tell you that Create with TLC has another promo set up for grabs when you make a purchase from the Artfire Store (between now and Thursday).  This set is a must for the bird lover, but will have you chirping Paulette's praises even if you are not an ornithologist.  She has put together a collection of gorgeous bird images, papers and sentiments. 

It is usally at this point that I tell you I have a project to share with you using this gorgeous set; however, I am still waiting for it to dry.  This set inspired a new creative side in me that I have never explored.  I am hoping that by tomorrow I will be able to update this post with my project that I created using this set.  So be sure to check back.

Here are the two creations I made using images/sentiments from this set.  My plate isn't completed because my sister, the artist, needs to put her finishing touches on it, but I wanted to share with you how oober easy it is to create.

Bird Plate
I purchased this plate for a $1 from my local Dollar Store.  I cut the image out on my Cameo and adhered it to the plate using Modge Podge.  I then put a thin coat of Modge Podge over the image and let it dry.  Once it dried I used my Crackling gel and coated the image with it and then let it dry.  This is how it turned out.  I had never tried this before, but am pretty please with the ease and outcome of it.  My sister will write a saying around the plate for me and paint the edges.  Hopefully I will be able to share that with you when she completes it.

Free as a Bird
This card was created using a free svg from Bird's Cards (hehe).  Bird is very generous with her creations and I truly appreciate it.  I used my Cameo to create a cardbase and then I used her svg to make the front for the card.  I cut out everything else using either the Cameo or a diecut.  I then added some gems in the center of my flowers and Stickles. 

In the meanwhile, I didn't want you to miss out on this PHENOM of a deal, because all you have to do is purchase something from the store and you get this set. 

Here's a sampling of what you'll get...

So don't wait too long before this awesome set flies away (*gigl*).  I am so excited about the project that I made using this set and *fingers crossed* once it is dry I will be able to show it all to you.

Oh and one more thing, would you like even more FREEBIES?  Well, Paulette has a secret page on her block at the top called "Vintage Graphics."  If you click on that tab you will enter a whole new world of free vintage images.  Isn't she awesome?!  Just don't forget to leave her some love. 

Thanks for looking and commenting!
