But we couldn't let you go shopping without just a little more inspiration. As you hop around you'll see a recap of all the new products. Be sure to start at Kim's blog for a full list of all the designers. There's blog candy hidden along the way too, so be sure to leave some love as you hop along.
I worked with the beautiful Inspired by Birds set. I know I say it every time I use a stamps from the Inspired By line, but the images are practically fool proof to colour because the shading is all in the stamp. I cut out the bird with a circle Nestabilities and layered it onto a Decorative Doily Die-namics which I cut from Berrylicious card stock. I cut out the greenish woodgrain paper with the smaller banner in the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics then stamped the sentiment and stitched it to the image panel. The patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up paper pad and the layout is the Deconstructed Sketch #41
The Large Leafy Flourish Die-namics seemed like a perfect fit for the vertical element of the sketch. I used the Royal Rose Die-namics to cut out English Rose felt then rolled it up for the floral accent. The Mini Monarch Border Die-namics was perfect to add just a little touch of dark grey at the bottom of the plaid layer and some Berrylicious ribbon and hemp twine finished off the top of the plaid panel. 
On the inside I added the same horizontal elements then stamped the bird again with Memento Summer Sky. I used the Mini Tabs Foursome Die-namics to cut out the green woodgrain paper and stamped another sentiment from Inspired by Birds


Here are the Die-namics I used:
