It's Make a Cut Monday!

Hello!  It's another Make a Cut Monday!  Today The Greeting Farm released Winter Greeting and Winter Kindness coordinating cutouts!  Don't you think these bundled up kids are adorable?!?! I decided to create some bookmarks because I don't know about you but I tend to read more than one book at a time.  And yes, I still love reading out of an actual book!  If it's super late at night, I switch over to my iPad so I don't need the lamp on and disturb the hubby.  (^_^)  Anyhow, I pretty much kept all the bookmarks uniformed since I created four and time is valuable for me, I'm sure most of you know what I'm talking about! (^_^)

Here are my bookmarks:






As always thanks for stopping by!  You can purchase the Winter Greetings and Winter Kindness stamps here and here.  And you can purchase their coordinating cutouts here and here.

TGF Release and a Blog Hop!

Hey there!  Today The Greeting Farm is releasing three new stamps, each were exclusive stamps that are now available to you!  Woohoo!  Party Props Anya was part of the Insta Fun kit, Puppy Love was from the Super Secret Stamp Club (SSSC) number 7 and the super cute Totes Anya was included in our Grab Bag limited time offer this summer.  Now you can get your crafty little hands on these super adorable stamps!  Yeay for you!  (^_^)

To celebrate today's release Rosie, Joni and I created some cards to inspire you using the stamps...here are my cards:

For this card, I wanted to created that photo booth feel and even though it's simple...I think it hit the mark.



I initially wanted to create a bookmark using the Puppy Love but thought I'd make this as a card for my dh since I always have such a hard time coming up with masculine cards...


For my Totes Anya card, I wanted to include a gift card since it looks like she's shopping!  So I decided to keep it simple.  I used the new die from Ellen Hutson where you could hide a gift card underneath it.  I thought that was pretty clever!  Too bad I had to open it up so you could see how it works and why I chose to make it really simple.  I will definitely be recreating this card for my niece's bday next month .






Thanks for stopping by, please visit Rosie, Joni and The Greeting Farm blog, and leave a comment on each blog, one lucky person will win all three of these super adorable stamps!  You have until 11 PM CST!  Good luck!

Make the Cut Monday at The Greeting Farm!

Today The Greeting Farm is releasing the Coordinating Cutouts to the ever so cute Spooky kit! I love this kit so much!  You can use some of the stamps throughout the year!  The cute little monsters and the "fairy" Anya could be used anytime!  I love when I could use my holiday stamps for more than just that one particular holiday...don't you?

Anyhow, I created 8 treat boxes using all 8 of the characters in the kit to give to the ladies at the Vet!  I absolutely love them and so glad we have such an awesome Vet!  Hope you can get some inspiration from my Halloween goodies...can't wait to see what you come up with using this kit!  You can purchase the cut files here.




Have an awesome week!

Oh Hello!

It's Monday and you know what that means!  The Greeting Farm Cut Team has some projects up on the TGF blog.  I decided to do two Daily Document pages since I'm so desperately trying to catch up on this year's album.  This time, I'm sorta working my way backwards.  I used a mix of the Berry Sweet and Summer Time kit.  I altered a few items like on the second page, I altered the gray card took off the "Live Laugh Love" and changed it to "Family".  Then I altered the pink card with the "Blessed" heart.  It was a cupcake with "so cute" on it and added the heart banners on the top with a white outline to make it pop more behind the pink background.  I would have done this digitally but I love the look of the added embellishments.  I try not to put too much bulk on my pages since last years album I had to use two albums because of the bulk.  I more simple with my LOs and cards as you can tell.  (^_^)



Before I forget, I'd ask for help with a Monday title for my blog post on The Greeting Farm site, and if anyone could help me come up with a title, the chosen title will win something cute.  I'd like there to be a Monday and Cut or Print and Cut in the title.  

Thanks for stopping by, be sure to check out my fellow DT's blog (Corinne, Cynthia and SuiLan) to see what they created and to get more details on their projects.  The Cut Team will be taking a break and hope to be back soon!  See you soon!

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.
