"Snow and Cocoa" Inspired, p.2




Happy Friday farm friends, I'm on the TGF blog with another "Snow and Cocoa" inspired post. As you know, the Crate and Paper line is sooo cute with its pinks and blues but that also means that its really popular and sold out pratically every where.  Yesterday's project was inspired by a polr bear tag found in the ephemera pack.

Todays project was inpired by the whole line. I took elements from different pieces and used them as inspiration. I created 4 cards size 3x4 which I found  were the perfect size to play and experiment. Plus, they are perfect for a DD album or for project life. I used several greeting farm sets for this project. I like looking at all the smaller stamps on the sets because they can be used to create awesome mini projects.  I hope you found inspiration here and give it a go to create your own set. Happy weekend!

Tis The Season

Click HERE for my Snow and Cocoa inpired project OR scroll down


Hello All! I'm on the Quick Creations blog today and today I have a Christmas card featuring the adorable greeting farm reindeers.  I was inspired by the poloraid frames found in the "odds and ends" pack and so I thought it would be cute to make it look as if its their christmas card that they are sending out to their snow friends. hehe. Cute, right! I hope you found inspiration here today and start on your christmas projects.
Thanks for stopping by.

Snow and Cocoa Inspired




Happy Thursday farm friends, I'm on the TGF bog with a "Snow and Cocoa" inspired post. The absolute super cute pink and colorful winter-christmas line released by Crate Paper has been very popular amongst us crafters and thus has been extremely hard to find. Everywhere I look, most of it is sold out and so I decided to be inspired by the line and by an  ephemera piece in particular. This greeting farm polar bear from the set "Let It Snow" was perfect to recreate the bear tag (seen in the top picture), I like a lot from the ephemera pack. 

I created my tags by: stamping the bear with black ink, creating a mask for the bear and applying it to the tag, using distress inks of various aqua shades and pink and then stamping the mini stars found on the stamp set. This doesn't require much coloring as the bear is stark white but you can opt for minor shading as I did.  These are quick, simple and great for mass production.  Now its your turn to give it a go. I hope it's snowing wherever you find yourself.

DECEMBER Farm Fresh Challenge: Sparkle




Happy DECEMBER 1st! Wow!! That was insanely quick how this year just went by. It is the last farm fresh and this time we want to see some ... SPARKLE.  It's time to go crazy with your sequins, gems, sparly paper and work on some fun projects.

NOVEMEBER Farm Fresh Challenge: Fall Colors




Happy November! It's that time again to bring you some farmer inspiration for the new farmer monthly challenge. The theme is... FALL COLORS  In most parts of the country, the weather has cooled down, the leaves are changing color and pumpkin everything is in full swing but for me, well let's just say that beach attire is still appropriate. I thought of creating a "sunny" theme card featuring the fall colors but I decided that the woodland crittters are much more cute and lovable. These stamp sets are a couple of my favorites because they can be used for so much more than what they were intended for. 

Make sure to click over to the TGF blog to see what the rest of the farmers created for you. You will also find the guidelines there so you can play along with us.

These Bunnies are Grateful For...



Hi! I'm on the greeting farm blog sharing a non-tradfitional thankful card. Around this time of year, we see lots of browns, oranges and yellows on our fall projects but I don't belive in those colors. I'm a beliver of pink, pink and more pink, hehe. So with that in mind, I used the cute bunnies from "Hoppy Hello", a set released last year, and I paired them with the sentiment from the Hello Fall set . They go perfect with each other and it goes to show that you can always mix and match lots of your tgf stamps (as you have seen on my projects). Happy friday and Thanks for stopping by!

Written in Watercolor


Hello All! I'm over on the Quick Creations blog today featuring a watercolor theme card. Since watercolor is all the rage, it was time to use this awesome sentiment stamp set from MFT. It is called "written in watercolor" and the sentiments are meant to be the star of the card. I decided to give the "star" a couple of co-stars in the form of lots of circles. That way they can have a star party together. hehe. As I said, the sentiments are large, versatile and awesome and will also work great on mixed media, scrapbook pages, travelers notebooks, etc.  I hope you found inspiration here today.

Favorite Person to Laaugh With


Hello all! I'm over at the Quick Creations blog sharing a card featuring some adorable bunny friends. When I read the sentiments and the cuteness of the stamp set, I knew I needed to use it.

That is what is so great about the birdie brown sets, because they mix well with each other and they work for lots of different themes.

Happy Sunday! I'm here today because there is a special post on the TGF blog featuring the Mini Pony Party set from STAMPtember.

I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest featuring penguins and snow and so I thought, why not pair the cute ponies and unicorns with elves getting ready for the big day (but of course having fun in the process). So here they are, getting ready for a big snowball fight. I wonder who will win. Thanks for stopping by!
