One last hurrah for The Greeting Farm's Hoppy Easter Kit and some Coordinating Cut Files

Hey everyone!  It's the day after Easter and the Print and Cut team has one last inspirational blog post for you!  Just in case you guys needed one last look at the kit so scrap all your wonderful Easter pictures!  I have to say the team did a phenomenal job!  Here's my projects for this week.

For project was to create a 3D project.  I decided to create the Free Standing Pop Up Card.  I created the template on my silhouette.  Super easy!  This card folds and fits in an A2 envelope.  I pretty much used all the elements from the Hoppy Easter kit.The "some bunny loves you" is from Mama Elephant.

My second project was a LO, I decided to do an Easter LO because I wanted you guys to see it used as an Easter LO one last time.  I know you must have taken tons of Easter pics, so why not do my last LO as an Easter LO.  I used the journal cards, again, I erased the "my bunny" and stamped the "I'm all ears!" which is from Mama Elephant.  Resized the pink bunny and added some doilies and enamel dots.

Hope you can get some ideas from my projects.   Please check out The Greeting Farm's blog and my fellow DT's blog:  Corinne, Cynthia and SuiLan to see their awesome projects!

And before I go, we got more Coordinating Cut Files available at The Greeting Farm's store.  They're only $1, so worth it! Saves you tons of time and easy to use!

Hello!  The Greeting Farm's Cut File Team is back with more Hoppy Easter inspiration.  This week we were tasked to create two projects using the kit for anything BUT an Easter project.  I wanted to showcase this kit as a versatile kit.  You don't just need this kit for Easter, but anything you set your mind to!  Here are my two projects:

My first project I created a spring layout.  Here I used the the polka dot 6x4 journal card, and the 3x4 filler card along with the 3x4 filler card from the Berry Sweet Daily Life kit.  I also used the flowers, pink butterfly and the label with the heart from the BS Daily Life kit.  The butterflies that you see, were punched from the Easter eggs.  I punched out the clouds from my Fiskars med and large cloud punch And I used some washi tape on the top and bottom.  

 On my second project I decided to create a Daily Life project with all the cards from the Hoppy Easter kit.  I did the same thing with the butterflies that I did in the 1st layout.  I also stiched the clouds and sun from the Amy Tangerine Stitching Stencils (I know my cloud looks a bit wonky, need to fix that!).  As you can see two of my cards from the kit were a bit altered.  I erased the "hello" and the "My Hunny Bunny", to better suit my needs. This is what I love about having these digital files!  There are endless possibilities with it!  Try for yourself and let us know what you've done with this kit!

Hope you got some inspiration from this and from the other DT can check their blogs here:

We got more Cut Outs!

I just love these cut outs.  I know I've said it before but I can't stress how much these cut outs have made it so easy and quick for me!  This week we are releasing Birthday Anya 3, Beanie Ian and Holiday Anya 2!  You can purchase these here.

As you can see, I've cut and stamped the coordinating images on the cut outs and left one blank so you can see what it looks like after it was cut.  Please feel free to email me if you have any questions regarding these files.

More Hoppy Easter Inspirations!

Good Day!  The Greeting Farm's Print and Cut team is back with more inspiration using the Hoppy Easter kit.  Our theme was one Easter project and one spring project.  Here are my take on it:

On this first project, I did a Spring LO...I used the flower element (blue flower with green background), "Spring is Here" 3x4 journal card (behind Avery's picture), 3x4 polka dot journal card, I cut the "Egg-stra Special" tag to just "Special" also did that with the "Happy" from "Happy Easter" but for some reason it fell off (will need to retake pic to include it.).  This was taken during Spring in DC when the Cherry Blossoms were in full bloom (gorgeous!) and this is with my first Samoyed, Avery.  I've always wanted to scrap this picture and the elements of the Hoppy Easter kit went perfect with it!

My second project is a card in a box.  I just love making these!  I love how well the Hoppy Easter kit worked with this.  I'll be handing these cute little card in a box to my nieces for Easter.   If you haven't made them, you should!  They are addicting!

OK, hope you got some fun inspirations from my projects.  Please check out TGF's blog and the blogs of my fellow DT's:

Surprise! New TGF kit and Blog Hop!

Yeay, The Greeting Farm has a new kit - Hoppy Easter!  This kit is a mini kit with an exclusive digital stamp – Easter Bean!  Woohoo!  (^_^)   Just a little info regarding this kit and our previous Print and Cut kits.  You do not actually need an electronic cutting machine.  But of course you know having one is easier but not necessary.   We have set up all the files in our kits to accommodate those that do have one and those that do not.   The Hoppy Easter kit contains:  4 -3×4 journal and filler cards, 2 -6×4 filler and journal card, 20 – elements and one EXCLUSIVE digital stamp!

Not only do we have a new mini kit, but we also have a new Team!  Design Team that is...we are no longer a "guest"!  Woohoo!  Check out The Greeting Farm blog for more info and an introduction to the team.

Our task for this week was to create one Daily Life page and card.  Here are my take on it:

Since I don't have kids, I decided to use the kit for a spring page.  It's pretty versatile and as you can see in one of my 6x4 cards, there's an Easter egg shaped journal section...but really it goes with anything.  

For my card, I wanted to make an easel card, I used Easter Bean and the cute bunny from the kit.  Got the post-it from Target's dollar section a few years back...  If you didn't know Marie (owner/designer of TGF) created some for Target a couple of years ago.  I think I may have a few but can't seem to find them right now.

Hope you were able to take some inspiration out of my projects and my fellow DT.  Don't forget we are having a Blog Hop on The Greeting Farm blog.  You must visit all DT's blogs, comment on each and then go back to The Greeting Farm's blog to let us know you've done it.  All entries must be done before 11:30 PST on Mar 18.   One lucky commenter will be selected at random to win the Hoppy Easter kit on Mar 19.  Good luck!

TGF Monday - new addition...

Happy Monday!  Marie (TGF owner/designer) and I have teamed up to offer TGF fans cut outs of existing TGF stamps!  How cool is that?  We are releasing three cutouts today consisting of:  Double Cupcake Anya, Miss Anya Night Out and Sweetie Bean.  Here's an example of how the file looks:

Here I have the three files cut out and stamped...of course I left one w/o stamping so you can see how it looks.  I'm sure there are a bunch of you out there that are probably either too busy or super lazy (that's me!) to cut your images.  We've done the work for  you and all you have to do is, send the files through your Silhouette, let it do the hard work for you, stamp your image onto the cut out, color and then add to your project!  Each file is only $1.00!  So not only are you not cutting your images out by hand but you're getting it for a STEAL!  Woohoo!  You can purchase these files here.  Enjoy and hope this helps your creativity go a lot smoother and faster (^_^)
