Welcome to the Joy Clair January Release Blog Hop! The design team has been working hard creating a variety of projects that are sure to spark your creativity juices! You should be arriving from the talented Crystal R's blog. If you happened to join the hop in the middle, please start at the Joy Clair blog!

Joy Clair’s January release contains four everyday stamp sets and four stamp sets from their new bible journaling line, Color by Faith! All stamp sets will be on sale 25% off starting at 10:00am EST on January 19th. The entire bundle will be available for $80.00!

I am excited to be sharing my projects from the new sets:
Hedge Hogtastic
With these cute little guys I wanted to have them playing around. so using my cameo and the wonderful svg cut file, I made masks and had fun. 

This little guy looked a little tired to me, so he is all bundled up and ready for a nap on his way to the recipient. 

Love Tree
I absolutely love the svg files that can be purchased on the JoyClair website. My first thought when I saw this stamp set was a family tree book, and we Always & Forever is just a great sentiment to go with it. 
God’s Love
Making a bookmark for my bible I love this God's Love stamp set. Using both silver and gold embossing powder to bring it all together. 

Love Quotes
Using a Darice embossing folder and some red ink I was able to make the pretty back ground for the simple sentiment "You Fill My Heart". 

And then I decided to have a little fun. This is another darice embossing folder with eyes all over it. I cut the double hearts with the SVG file, and made it into shakers like glasses. With the saying "You are all I see", and a set of black eyes down below.

Songs of Solomon
Thinking about my oldest daughters upcoming wedding, I decided to play with this set to make a little wedding card. 

You & Me
"Where would I be without you"... LOST, walking in circles and backtracking like the path in this background. 

Designer Labels
This was actually the first design I did out of this months release. Using my Zig clean color real brush markers to give a washed out water color look. 

I hope you have enjoyed seeing what fun I have had with these stamp sets, and can't wait to see the creations you come up with as well.
