New Coordinating Cutouts and a Giveaway!

Happy Monday!  I'm back with some Coordinating Cutouts (CC) for The Greeting Farm today!  Today we are releasing Twirl Anya and the super cute Xmas Sweeties (you can get the CC's here.)  I'm super excited about Xmas Sweeties since I'm already starting on all my Christmas projects.  If I don't do it now, there will be none come Christmas time.  I usually host Christmas here so I'm pretty busy from Thanksgiving on and looks like we'll be having some family from my dh's side moving  here and my parents will be visiting. So it'll be bigger than normal!  I'm already tired just thinking of it...haha! 

OK, I made this box which will house some goodies for the some of the ladies at my dog's vet.  I've gotten pretty close to them since I'm there all the time! LOL!  I'll be making more using the Xmas Sweeties and all the other Holiday stamps from The Greeting Farm on each box.  I will of course try and share them here on my blog.  This box was created using the tutorial from my friend Joni which you can find here





I thought I'd add in cards I made previous (pre-coordinating cutouts):








OK, on to the Giveaway.  One lucky commenter will win the "sold out" Holiday Anya 4 which was released Sept 1!  All you have to do is show us your creation(s) using one or more of our Coordinating Cutouts! Please leave the comment on the TGF blog with your link to your project.  Winner will be announced Wednesday, Sept 18!

TGF Print and Cut inspiration!

Hey, hey, hey!  It's another Monday and you know what that means!  The Greeting Farm's Cut Team has created more projects for you today!  This time some of us used Berry Sweet, Hoppy Easter and Summer Time or all in our project.  For my Daily Documenting page, I pretty much used journal cards and filler cards from all three kits (a few of them I altered to fit my page.).  Along with a couple of embellishments from Berry Sweet and Summer Time kit.  




And for my card, I created this cut file using Summer Anya and a Polaroid frame.  Just love my Silhouette Cameo and all the cool and neat stuff you can create with it!  I have to say, this is definitely one of the best investments I could have made and my husband actually agrees because I use it almost on a daily basis!  This card is super simple since the frame takes up most of the card and I really like my cards simple most of the time.





As always thank you for stopping by!  Please visit my fellow DT members:  Corinne, Cynthia and SuiLan along with the TGF blog for more inspiration!  If you are interested in purchasing any of our Print and Cuts, please click here.

Aloha!

I'm back with more CC (Coordinating Cutouts) for TGF.  Today we released Hula Anya, Simply Anya and Teacher Anya


I've decided to include a card I made using Hula Anya back before I had my electronic cutting machine.  Man, I can't believe I would cut the images out by hand!  So happy that TGF now offers these, they totally make me craft faster.  I usually cut a whole sheet of the image (which are included) stamp all at once and color their hairs (that and cutting would take me the longest)...  So when I'm ready to make a card, I just color their outfit to match whatever designer paper I use.  Easy peasy! (^_^)  Enjoy and I hope these help you as they have helped me!  Aloha!

Good Day!

I am back to share some layouts I created using The Greeting Farm's Print and Cut kits.  My first LO is a Daily Documenting page, this is from 2013...I found a few pages that weren't fully filled...so I thought I'd use some of the Berry Sweet Journal Cards and Summer Time Journal Cards in this LO.  I recolored the plumeria card (Berry Sweet JC) to coordinate with the picture.  Also recolored the Happy Halloween card (Summer JC) to give it more of a Halloween feel.  And I used the blue card with Fuji (Summer JC) and typed "Where's Robin?" get it?  LOL!  Lame, I know!






On my next project, I created a LO using elements from the Summer Time kit, and I created a card using a Berry Sweet JC, recolored and added the Summer words from the Summer Time kit.


As always, thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.  Please visit Corinne, Cynthia, and SuiLan's blog for more inspiration!  Have a great week!

Hello There!

Hello!  Today TGF if releasing three of the last Big Anya's - Anya Blooms, Anya Celebrates and Anya Strolls.  I absolutely love these Anya's!  They are perfect for my nieces who are now teenagers!  Yikes!  Anyhow, I choose to make two cards (I fell short on time - really only made one but dug up a past card using the cutout).  Today I am sharing Anya Blooms and Anya Celebrates.  I made them super simple because these Anya's are big so I didn't want my A2 card to be cluttered.  I made one within 20 mins (which is rare) thanks to the Coordinating Cutouts!  They really help me speed up my card making process and I hope they do the same for you!  You can purchase the stamps here and the Coordinating Cuouts here.

Thanks for stopping by!
