WOW!!! I can't believe that it has been a little over a week since I last spoke, wrote, blogged to you all. I can not let that happen again...I missed you all too much!! This past week I have been completing projects that I have begun, starting new projects and creating some much needed cards. There have also been so many new developments that it is kinda hard to keep track of them all. I have so many ideas in head that I had to write them down and I can't remember them all to write them down. No worries, they will return to mind as all good ideas do. :D
Okay, enough talk. Let me show you some of the projects that have been done...
If you are a friend on Facebook then you may have seen this card. I have seen so many wonderful, colorful cards that I have loved; that became the inspiration for this one. For this card I used a Staples brand, acid & lignin free white card stock for the base. Best Occasions Deluxe Card stock in the maze yellow as the under mat and DMD's Adhesive Mat Stacks in their Fancy Pants design is where the yellow printed paper is from. I added a satin white ribbon along the bottom and a blue star brad from Making Memories. The little bee girl was cut with the Cricut using the Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge at 3" (pg 70-outfit, pg 41-hair). Her bee wings were cut with the same cartridge but at 1" (pg 75-wings). I took a standard size hole punch and cut out her little bee friends; I drew the wings, head and stinger. The sentiment was cut with Cricut using the Stong Script font at 1". And that is all there is to it. Isn't it cute?!
This sweet little cards was inspired/recreated from a card I saw created by Jewels Paper Jewels http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vnYz5z3RKaE I adored this card and had to make it. I used the Cricut Cartridge Home Decor to cut out the little birdies at 1" and the flower at 2". I used the Plantin Schoolbook Cartridge to cut the circle at 1 1/2". To cut the edges of the mats the birds are on and the card I used decorative scissors. I just really like to colors of this card. The white card stock is the Staples brand, the green is from Best Occasions and the patterned paper is from Hot Hues - Designer Paper pack. The sentiment, "Just a little Tweet" was hand written.
This "Missing Ewe" card is one that I am very proud of because it features new patterned paper from The Flourish Collection by Favorite Favors. This is the very first digital paper collection. Six different papers - 3 patterned, 3 solids, borders, flourishes, alphabets in 3 different colors; I love it!! Can't wait to show it to you!! I will let you know when it is ready. So let's talk about the card. White card stock from Staples, black under mat is from DMDs paper reflection. Pattern paper - OURS! The die-cut frame is from K&Company and the ewe is cut from the Paper Dolls Dress Up Cricut Cartridge at 3" (pg 77). The months are stamped using the Autumn Leaves Messy Dates Stamps and gold Colox Box ink. The sentiment was again hand written on this card. This is my favorite Card to date. I am so, so excited about it and all that this card means and represents.
It means that Favorite Favors is expanding and new ideas are flowing and that is always a good thing. We are expanding, creating digital papers, embellishment and even digital stamps. I will do a blog on the stamps as well. We also will soon be going video! WHOO HOO!!!! So you can see that there are a lot of new developments on the horizon and as soon as they are ready I will let you all know. :D
Thank you much for stopping by!
