More Summertime Kit and Journal Card Inspiration

Happy Monday!  The TGF Cut Team is back with more inspiration using the Summertime kit and Journal Cards.  Corinne has posted on the TGF blog, so be sure if you haven't already been there, please visit the TGF blog.

I decided to do two layouts...1st LO I decided to do a Daily Life document page...

This is actually a summer spread from 2012...yes folks, I'm still playing catch up with 2012, however 2013 is pretty much done and 2014 is almost current. Woohoo!  I used all journal and filler cards from the Summer Journal Card kit and the rainbow embellishment on the left corner from the Summertime kit.  I know you can't read the journal (because I barely's super small...haha!)  This spread is basically the time my bff and her family visited and we went to the Safari Zoo and boy was it hot.  We couldn't stay the whole day because my God daughter almost passed out.  So we went and got some shaved ice (which is very close to the ones I'm used to in HI and Japan) and decided to do some free adventrues around San Diego.  We finally found the Munchkin homes that I have been hearing about since I first moved here in the mid 90's.  It was a fun little adventure.

Here's my second project.  I decided to do another page for my album.  I have tons of beach or summer time pictures thanks to living in HI.  We would always go out during sunset to take pics and we wanted to share the experience with my husband's cousins while they visited us in HI.  I believe my brother took this picture.  Love it and so glad we have these memories!  I used a bunch of different elements from the Summertime kit along with some from our very first kit Berry Sweet Print and Cut kits.

Thanks for stopping by, please stop by my fellow DT's blog...Corinne, Cynthia and SuiLan.  Kits are avail here.

Hello, hello!

It's another Monday and a Mini Release at the Farm!  Man, I can't believe it's already July!  I still can't believe how fast time flies!  Can you?  Yikes!

Well today the ever so talented Cut Team from The Greeting Farm has some gorgeous creations on the blog and on each of our own blogs.  Today we are releasing some new Journal Cards.  Which are perfect for your Daily Documenting, cards and layouts.  Even though they were based off of summer colors, I was able to use them in my March layouts.  As you know we basically have year round summers here in beautiful California!  Especially SoCal!  So these cards will be making several appearances on my Daily Documenting Album!  Oh before I forget, since these are essentially digital products, you can recolor and manipulate these cards to fit your needs!  Love digital for their never ending possibilities!

So before I bore you to death, let me post my creations!  First up is my card.  I made a super simple card since it's for a guy (you know they don't really care for your cards as much as the women do! LOL!).  I used the 6x4 Favorite Journal Card as my background,  the 3x4 Hello card as my second layer, Summertime Ian (included in the Summertime Kit), Banner  and Enjoy Life (also from the Summertime Kit).

Here is my Daily Documenting page.  Along with the Journal Cards I also used embellies from the Summertime Kit.  Blurred our the journal, I don't write well and in this particular page there were some personal information.  My page is simple, colorful and to the point.  That's how I like to document (^_^)  

Make sure to visit the TGF blog and my fellow Cut Team's  (Corinne, Cynthia and SuiLan) blogs for their creations!  Journal Cards are available here.

Mermaid and Nurse Anya are here...

Today The Greeting Farm is release the Coordinating Stamp Cutouts of a couple of our first stamps; Mermaid and Nurse Anya!  Just a bit of information regarding the files, we are no longer offering the Silhouette (.studio) files.  The files comes in .png and .svg.  Both of which you can be used in your electronic cutting machine.  I specifically use the Silhouette.  Hoping we could get a tutorial posted on The Greeting Farm blog soon!  Keep an eye out for it!

I made this card a while back (before owning a Silhouette), it's one of my favorite.  Thought I'd post it here since we are going back to the beginning of TGF (^_^)

Hoping these files help everyone speed the crafting process just a little bit faster than normal (^_^)

The Greeting Farm's Summertime Print and Cut Kit is here!

Woohoo!  I absolutely love this kit!  Perfect for our summer themed scrapbooks and cards!  Since I lived in Hawaii, I have tons of beach and summer pictures so this kit is perfect for me!  And I know it'll be a great addition for you!

Before I go any further, I'm always asked if you need an electronic cutting machine for any of our Print and Cut kits, and the answer is "no".  Basically you can just cut everything out using your scissors.  But if you have  a Silhouette or any other machine that reads .svg, .studio files you should be able to use it and it makes it easier and faster.  But I find sometimes on those rare occasion when I want to just sit in front of the tv and do something with my hands, I actually print and just cut by hand, it's pretty therapeutic.

Now on to my reveal...I created a card and a layout.  I used the "Enjoy Today" banner, Summertime Anya, scallop border and the "Today I feel Loved" on my card.  Papers are from Studio Calico Boardwalk.

For my layout, I used DCWV background paper from their Endless Summer Stack, the sun, "enjoy life", slippahs (as we say in HI), "today I feel cool", "today I feel Happy", and the .5cent embellies from the Summertime kit and a few enamel dots.

And before I give you the details to our Blog Hop,We have a Guest Designer - Kristina Werner joining us on our release.  I am jumping up and down like a little girl! LOL!  That lady has some mad talent!  Please visit her blog and/or Youtube channel as she does a process video on how she created her card using the Summetime kit. While you're there, check out her other creations, she's made a bunch of cards using some of our TGF stamps!  Her blog is filled with tons of awesome inspiration!

Now onto our Blog Hop...  check out all our blogs (Corinne, Cynthia, Suilan) where you will find more creations from the Print and Cut Design Team including Kristina.
