Sending Squishy Hugs


Hello All! I'm on the Quick Creations blog today sharing some squishy hugs inspiration featuring a disgruntled cat and her owner who can't let go.  I think we have all been this little girl at one point in our lives because we either want to squeeze our pet, a stuffed animal or baby/toddler to our hearts content (in a good way, of course). I was going for a happy and bright card to put a smile on the recipients face, hence the bright colors. 

Now make sure to click on over to the Quick Creations blog for more inspiration and to the Quick Creations shop for your own goodies to play with. Noelle has filled the shop with lots of new goaodies from the greeting farm, krafting kimmie, doodlebug, echo park, my favorite things and many other. Also, there is a monthly challenge happening where you can win a store gift certificate. The theme is stars and stripes, which is quite easy.
Thanks for stopping by!

July Release Preview Day 4: Pop Out Christmas





Hi, I'm back with our last day of July previews. They have all been super cute so far, am i right? Today, we are previewing the set POP OUT CHRISTMAS, which is all about the Christmas icons. They were created in a semi-chibi form tho which makes them look even cuter. If you add some wobbles to the back of these icons, they will look super adorbs shaking about. As you can see, I created layered tags which will make the gifts pop.

Just as a reminder, the release is happening tomorrow and will be available for purchase at The Greeting Farm Store.

July Release Preview Day 3: Ho Ho Holiday





Hi, I'm back with Day 3 of previews for the JULY Release, which will be available for purchase at The Greeting Farm Store on Friday, July 22nd. We have four new sets coming out with their coordinating dies and they all revolve around Christmas time! Eeek, it is officially the midway point and it is time to start creating your cards and making those lists.

Today, we are previewing the set HO HO HOLIDAY, which is all about Santa and his adorable elf helpers. I think this one may be my favorite set out of the four because all the icons are just uber adorable. For my 1st card, I thought I go for a fun party type card similar to my mice card, in which Santa and his elves are jumping getting ready for the big day. 

Now its time to head over to the TGF Blog to see what the rest of the design team created for you. See you tomorrow for day 4. Don't forget we will also be having a New Release Blog Hop were 1 lucky person will win the entire release! Thanks for stopping by!

July Release Preview Day 2: Let's Mingle




Hi, I'm back with Day 2 of previews for the JULY Release, which will be available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store on Friday, July 22nd. We have four new sets coming out with their coordinating dies and they all revolve around Christmas time! Eeek, it is officially the midway point and it is time to start creating your cards and making those lists.

Today, we are previewing the set LETS MINGLE, which is all about cutesy mice. When you think of mice you don't necessarily think cute or christmasy but i think Ratatouille changed our minds on that one. For my card, I thought I go for a fun party type card. The mice are jumping all over the place with their cheese, cookies and gifts waiting for santa to drop by.  

Now its time to head over to the TGF Blog to see what the rest of the design team created for you. See you tomorrow for day 3. Don't forget we will also be having a New Release Blog Hop were 1 lucky person will win the entire release! Thanks for stopping by!

Water You Up To?

Scroll down for my TGF Previews Day 1 post



Happy Monday!! I'm here to share some fun shaker inspiration featuring "dolly diver" who happens to be swimming around with the fishies when she notices a new friend has attached himself to her. As cute as the squid is, I don't think id be to keen to want to have it hitch a ride on me. All the extras come from a TGF set and was perfect to give the card that underwater effect. I was also going for a happy and bright card to put a smile on the recipients face, hence the pink and yellow sequins.

Now make sure to click on over to the Quick Creations blog for more inspiration and to the Quick Creations shop for your own goodies to play with. Noelle has filled the shop with lots of new goaodies from the greeting farm, krafting kimmie, doodlebug, echo park, my favorite things and many other.

We have four new sets coming out with their coordinating dies and they all revolve around Christmas time! Eeek, it is officially the midway point and it is time to start creating your cards and making those lists.

Today, we are previewing the adorable set DASHING! Who are the ones that do all the dashing, the cute reindeer of course. This set will be great for lots of Christmas projects as it comes with several friendly reindeer and lots of sentiments. For my card, I was inspired by the way the "girl" reindeer is drawn and she looked like she was ready to give a reindeer kiss to her mate right before take off.  And so there you have it, a little reindeer love card ;)
