Today we are introducing Lakeside Lodge, Moka Bobby, Moka Tim and the FREE Father's Day Digi Image.

I have a card today using Lakeside Lodge, the newest addition to the Apple Doodle Ink Line, illustrated by Doug Applegate. This is #5 in the collection of Doug's Adorable Abodes, and was concepted by our wonderful Design Team Coordinator, Jami Sibley!

We love to vacation in cabins and lodges in or near National Parks, and my most favorite NP is Yosemite! This is what I thought of when I created this little lakeside scene. I started by first stamping and coloring the lodge with Copic markers. I also added the deck and adirondack chairs beside it. Both images are cut out and popped up with foam tape. I stamped one of the included sentiments, Happy Father's Day, onto a little round mini tag (one of NINE tags that are a part of the new Mini Tags Die Set). I LOVE tags, especially mini tags, so I am especially excited about these tags (read: be prepared to see me use these A LOT)! I also added a couple of felt clouds (using the Clouds Duo Die) to complete the scene.

I used supplies from the Loyal Project Pantry (patterned paper, cardstock and ribbon) to create my card. Taylored Expressions is offering the Loyal Basic Recipe Kit along with optional Spice It Up Ingredients that you can pick and choose from to build the kit just the way you want it.

The Loyal Project Pantry Basic Recipe Kit is $13.95 and includes:
Authentique Loyal 6x6 pad of 36 of sheets
12 sheets of coordinating solid cardstock
5 yards of ribbon (1 yard each of 5 different styles)

Spice It Up Coordinating products will be listed in the store under this item. More details will be provide on Release Day!

These are the Taylored Dies that I used on my card:
