Collection 5: Uglies

It’s Release Day 3, and things are getting pretty Ugly around here. Today we are introducing our new series of monsters from Collection 5. We lovingly call them UGLIES. They are little monsters that are so ugly that they are CUTE!

This release has such an amazing inventory of fabulous new products, that we are making each release day item available to you as soon as you see it. That’s right, each day during our release week we will be adding brand new products to the store. Our new collection consists of (9) different series that we will continue to showcase as we take a closer look at the new Uglies…

Ugly is the new cute! And we are happy to have these little monsters invading our crafting space. They are a kin to the Little Critters series, which makes it super fun to mix and match while creating.

Uglies Inspiration

____________________________________________________________________

As the weather starts to change and Halloween draws near, one thing that never gets old in our house is watching Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin. And soon thereafter you can find most TV channels airing A Christmas Story, Frosty, Rudolph, and an all-time favorite – the Grinch. Taking a nod from the loveable green scrooge, our little Uglies are ready for the holidays…

We added a fun candy cane striped banner from Favor Flags and curved a sentiment from Cart Pals: Occasions to follow the bend in the banner.

For the second card, we simply created a scene with Cart Pals: Baby and Cart Pals: Occasions and masked in a sweet little ugly.

Build-an-Ugly Inspiration

____________________________________________________________________

We love to create functional and fun projects. Here we used the Uglies series to create a set of memory flashcards.

The Little Uglies were stamped on mini rectangles, and backed with designer paper to create memory cards.

They are neatly tucked away in a fun, coordinating tri-fold holder. We stamped the holder with the Distressed Linen background to add some dimension.

We added an extra score line to make the Tri-Fold have a boxy shape.  We also added a coordinating pocket by die cutting the pocket portion from the Bottle Tag die.

And to complete the set, there is a matching Build-an-Ugly shape card.
