SSSC Release Day at The Greeting Farm!




Hey there!  Today is the Release Day for the SSSC stamps Honey (no. 12) and Fashionista (no. 13)!  Woohoo!  I know quite a few of you missed this series so now is your chance to collect them.  They are super duper cute don't you think (^_~)  I love receiving these stamps in the mail.  I always forget they come monthly until they just pop up in the mail.  I absolutely love opening up my package and being surprised because you just don't know what stamps you're getting.  Again, if you're unsure how the SSSC works...here's a little summary:

Super Secret Stamp Club is a 3-month online subscription where members receive a 3x4 special edition ‘mystery’ TGF stamp each month at an exclusive membership price of $8. PLUS members will get the stamp 1-5 months prior to it being released to general public at the exclusive edition retail price of $12. Secret stamp will ship the first week of each month (with the exception of international orders which will ship all 3 stamps at the end of the second month) during the period in which you've registered for.

So for those that missed out on this series they are now avail at the store

Now on to my creations!  First one is a card I made using Honey...  This card will be giving to our youngest niece who turned 11 last week and we haven't had a chance to see her so I'm not really late...lol! 



My second project is a nail-polish holder which I plan on giving our other niece.  Thankfully the boom in nail polishes are huge!  I've always loved painting my nails, so having nail polishes the it thing right now makes me so happy and I love giving the girls the newest and latest colors!  I thought Fashionista Anya was the perfect image to attach to the holder since, well, she's a Fashionista (^_^)



As always, thank you for stopping by!  Be sure to check out The Greeting Farm's blog to see what my fellow DT remembers created!

TGF Preview number 2 - Fashionista!





Welcome back!  Today's we are showcasing the ever so fashionable Fashionista Anya!  I just love, love, love her!  Fashionista is no. 13 of the SSSC series.  I decided to make another bookmark...yes, another one!  I am seriously one of those readers that read several books at a time.  Sometimes I read one book and find that I'm not into drama, so I'll switch over to another book but will go back to the drama when I'm in the mood.  I'm mostly a chick lit reader.  I don't go for heavy but that doesn't mean I don't read anything heavy.  I do prefer the light, fluffy types of books.  Currently I'm reading the Harry Potter series, the latest Shopaholic book, the newest Sophia Kinsella's YA book, a couple of books by another British Author, Princess Grace's biography (oooh, I do love biography books too!), and several others on my kindle.  So when I don't want to distrub the hubby, I read from my kindle in the dark but if I don't care (^_^) or it's daytime, I love having a book in my hands!  Be forewarned I will be making more bookmarks...hahaha!  Anyhow, that's enough of my book obsession...  here's my bookmark using Fashionista.  I tried to keep it as flat as possible but I just had to add the little flower!  


Please visit the TGF blog for more inspirations!  Don't forget Honey and Fashionista will be available Monday, June 15!

The Greeting Farm's Sneak Peak


Oh my!  I totally forgot to publish this!  Sorry!

I have some TGF's sneaks today and tomorrow!  Today we are featuring TGF's SSSC Honey she's no. 12 in the series.  Isn't she adorable?  If you don't know what TGF's SSSC (Super Secret Stamp Club) is all about, well, let me tell you about it in Rosie's words (our wonderful DT coordinator (^_~))!  Super Secret Stamp Club is a 3-month online subscription where members receive a 3×4 special edition ‘mystery’ TGF stamp each month at an exclusive membership price of $8. PLUS members will get the stamp 1-5 months prior to it being released to general public at the exclusive edition retail price of $12. Secret stamp will ship the first week of each month (with the exception of international orders which will ship all 3 stamps at the end of the second month) during the period in which you’ve registered for.  This is an awesome "club" because you receive your stamps 3 months in a row! I usually forget about it and when I get it in the mail, I'm super excited!  You never know what to expect.  And so far I have not been disappointed at all and I can promise you, neither will you!

OK, on to my creation!  I created this card, and let me tell you it took me several tries as I didn't really have a plan or look I was going for.  So as you can see, it's started off as a birthday card, then I made it more of a Parisian theme because of the way Honey had her hand out, I thought why not use my stamp that says "bonjour"!  So it's a party and Parisian theme...hahaha!  I'm planning on sending this card to my friend for her birthday and I'm super late about getting it to her...so I'm going to have to add in a few extra goodies in her package (^_~) hahaha!  Better late than never!  



Hope you enjoyed today's preview.  Be sure to check back tomorrow for our next sneak peek!!! Both stamps will be available for purchase on June 15 at The Greeting Farm shop!  Be sure to stop by Rosie's and Joni's and TGF's blog for more inspirations!!!

New Goodies at The Greeting Farm


Hello everyone!  Today on The Greeting Farm we'll be previewing six new stamp sets plus dies!  I am super excited that The Greeting Farm is releasing clear stamps AND coordinating dies.  To be honest, sometimes I am really lazy when it comes to coloring, and not only are these stamp sets super cute, but they're so easy to color!  AND we no longer need to fussy cut!  So today we are previewing two of the six...  Happiest Birthday and Tweety Pie.  Here are my samples for the two sets.

I used Double Cupcake Anya, which I thought went perfectly with the Happiest Birthday set.  I paper piece the cake because I was lazy.  I actually have two more samples, but I'll showcase them on our release day which is  May 8!  I absolutely love the sentiment that goes with the cake...along with the cake and sentiment you get a cupcake, banner, candle, heart and a couple of words.  Can't wait for you all to see it!



Tweety Pie is one of my favorites and this comes with two Tweety birds, branch, hearts, bowtie and a couple of sentiments.  These clear stamps are 3x4.  All six goes well with one another so it's great to mix match!  

Make sure to stop by tomorrow for the next two previews.  Again, all of the new six stamps sets and coordinating dies will be available at The Greeting Farm on May 8, 2015!  Be sure to stop by The Greeting Farm blog to see all the great inspirations from my fellow DTs!

TGF SSSC Release Day!

Happy Hump Day everyone!  Today The Greeting Farm is releasing two Super Secret Stamp Club (SSSC) stamps - Sage No. 010 and Lavender No. 011!  If you're unfamiliar with how SSSC works here's a little info from Rosie:

"The SSSC releases are a set of 3 SECRET stamps that are offered at a special price during the enrollment period. We just had an enrollment period a few months ago. The next enrollment period will be JUNE 1st- JUNE 5th!! When you sign up for the SSSC you will receive a set of 3 stamps at a special lower price before they hit the store!! If you miss the enrollment, the stamps show up in the store a few months later, but at a higher price. So the best deal is to sign up during the enrollment period! I’ve been a part of the SSSC since the beginning and I have LOVED each stamp!! You won’t be disappointed….believe me!"

I agree with Rosie, I too have been subscribing from day one and I have yet to be disappointed.  I hear some people aren't thrilled with the skulls in the hair of Sage and Lavender neither am I, but that's a quick fix and if you see my cards below, I pretty much covered it.  Anyhow, stop by TGF's blog to read more on it and please stop by my fellow DT members to get full details on their super cute cards!

My first card is using Sage No. 010, here, I used Mindy Terasawa's adorable kit called Believe in Yourself avail here.  And of course the ever so cute Sage available here




For my second card, I used Lavender No. 011 along with Mindy Terasawa's free kit called Spring Joy.  Made this super simple since I need to snail mail this to my niece.  Again if you noticed, I covered up the skull the same way I did with Sage's, using enamel dots!  I have TONS of them so this is helping me use them up (^_^).  You can get Mindy Terasawa's freebie here and you can get Lavender No. 011 here.


Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you enjoyed my creations and can't wait to see what YOU come up with using these super cute images!  Now stop by The Greeting Farm's , Rosie's and Joni's blog for more inspiration!
