Since Postale started shipping this week (you should be able to order online next week) I thought I might show you one of the layouts I did for CHA. The red paper is called "This End Up" (#19423) which I thought was appropriate for this picture of my niece's daughter, Ada. The blue stripe is the backside of the same paper so you will need two sheets to make it exactly the same. The remaining paper was used to create the striped pinwheels using the Tim Holtz die Mini Paper Rosettes. This die cuts two sizes of pinwheels at the same time. Just what I needed for this project.
I also cut a solid red piece of cardstock 1 1/2 x 12", then stamped it repeatedly with a date stamp from the Postale stamp using black Archival Ink from Ranger to create an over all pattern on the cardstock.

Lille Tag (you can only see the number 22 sticking out)

You can also see here the month date stamp that I used on the red strip of cardstock previously mentioned.

The word TODAY is cut from another Lille tag then outlined with a black pen.
Pointing Finger Postale paper tape is used to draw your eye to the name.
Well, I hope that was not too confusing of an explanation on how I created this layout. I'm excited Postale is shipping now and even more excited to see what everyone is going to create using it.
