Gina K. Designs January 2019 New Release Blog Hop - Day 1


Happy Monday!

It's the very first day of our January Release Blog Hop.  This is a two day hop and you will want to stop by each blog both days and leave a comment.  Gina will choose a person from each day's comments and he/she will win a $50 gift card to the Gina K. shop.  You can get some great products with a $50 gift card!

The first set I want to show you is called Open Book designed by Melanie Muenchinger


This is my take on her stamp set.  I wanted an elegant look, so I went with a gold embossed book.



Today's next set is called Today and Always designed by Lisa Hetrick.


Even though Lisa's sets are always great as flowing watercolor works of art, my style is more clean and simple.  But her sets always work for that too!



 I hope you've enjoyed your journey through all the blogs today.  And remember - there is more coming tomorrow.  Be sure to comment all along the blog hop stops.  You could be a $50 gift card winner by visiting and commenting on each designer's post.

Are you ready to hop?  Just click on the links below for more from
