Hello Spring

Hi friends, I'm over on the TGF blog  squeezing in with some last minute Spring theme inspiration. In case you didn't know, the tgf monthly challenge is still going on and you have until the 31st to submit your entries. The theme is Swing into Spring and it's quite versatile so go ahead and have some fun using clouds, flowers, umbrellas, colors, critters etc.

I, of course, was inspired by the pink/pastel colors of Spring and used this awesome echo park paper as my starting point. The image is the retired Hatter Bean (who occasionally pops up in the farmers market) and she looks ready for a spring luncheon with her hat full of flowers. I hope this inspires you to get creating this weekend and **if you're feeling a little lost, look at your already colored images and take inspiration from them. 
Happy Holiday Weekend!

Planner Time

Happy Monday! I'm on the Quick Creations blog today with some planner inspiration. I've always been a paper planner girl but I didn't go beyond the occasional doodling and drawing but with all the cute planner stamps and accessories that are now available, i thought it was time to give it a go. You don't have to buy much, just some essentials like washi tape, a sticker sheets, paper, stamps, pens, paper clips, hmmmmm - ok well maybe that's a little more than not much but all the cuteness is hard to resist ;) Make sure you head over to the QC shop to purchase your planner supplies.

Today, we are previewing the awesome coffee set appropriately named PERK UP! There are a lot of us caffeine people out there so it was time for Marie to put her spin on it. This is a cute small clear set that also has a matching die set (sold separately) which is great if you don't like to fussy cut.  For my card, I was inspired by Starbucks and the season.

Happy first day of Preview! Today we start showcasing the MAY Release, which will be available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store on Sunday, May 15th. We will also be having a New Release Blog Hop on that day were 1 lucky person will win the entire release!

Today, we are previewing a new big Anya who is joining the farm with all her shopping bags and is appropriately named ANYA SHOPS! As always, Anya comes with lots of sentiments in a 4x6 set and is great for cheer up cards, along with friendship projects.  As for my card, I was inspired by the old black and white movies and played up her pencil, high waist skirt (which can also be seen as a dress). Even though, Anya is a cutesy character she can also be sophisticated ;)

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 2. Thanks for stopping by!

Stick It with TGF

Hi there, Im on the TGF blog today with a bit of TGF sticker inspiration.  The adorable minis totally lend themselves for this type of project. They are the perfect size to use in your planners, journals as well as for cards or tags. This was a fun little project that I was able to work on in an afternoon and it didn't require much. I found sticker labels to use, pulled out my markers and stamped away using a slick resistant ink pad.  After I was done, I die cut them out, placed them in a mini envelope that goes with my planner and I was done. I now have mini Anyas and totally adorable pets for my planner. Plus, what's great about these mini sets is that you can do quick sketch coloring or color as you usually do. I hope this has inspired you to look at your tgf images in a different way and create something today.

Plan On It

Happy Monday! I'm on the Quick Creations blog today sharing a different way to use your planner stamps. This set is totally cutesy with all sorts of icons, images and sentiments for your planner but I decided to change it up and make a card using some of the images. The best thing about this is that you don't have to fuss too much over the coloring. You can do some quick sketch coloring and you're done. Hope this helps you find inspiration in your planner stamps and if you don't own any, make sure you hop on over to the Quick Creations shoppe to buy one or two or a few (wink, wink).

Thanks for stopping by!
