BFF...Scrapbook layout

The Greeting Farm has come out with a new scrapbook kit called In the they have a faux stitching challenge this week and here is my entry. The spotlight being on my son and his Best friend Emily. They have a lot of fun together and have been friends since the first time they met. They have shared two different daycares, preschool, playdates, Ukrainian dancing, and are about to begin Ukrainian Kindergarten together in Fall...
I used the journaling stamp, the stars, and the my friend stamps, from the kit to make this page. Alot of stickles, bling, and googly eyes...remember sparkles make things more sparklier...the faux stitching is done around the edges. I do have a sewing machine specifically for my papercrafting but it just seemed to be out of reach in my studio...its getting a bit untidy in there...thanks for looking.

Thanks Fresh and Fruity style..

Yep always need thank you cards so here is a bright and cheery summery one. I used TGF Teacher Anya with fruit patterened paper and some metal embellishments. Thanks for looking. Oh ya I took the picture by the only flowers blooming here right

Wanna hug a tree?

With me?...I made this card out of recycled materials this was done for a green challenge for Earth day on The Greeting Farm.

I used:

Recycled card board inserts for the base of the card. These were being thrown out at my office. I saved them for my paper crafting.

The frame is the backing from a Prima stamp.

The ribbon is binding tape for sewing which I recycled from our city's recycled re-use it store that saves reusable items from going into landfill.

The flowers are punched from recycled paper from DCWV and the little ones are from scraps in my scrap bin.

The beads are from a little girls necklace that I took apart and saved the beads.

The only items not recycled are the paper the image is printed on and inks.

Heck the image is digi so hey even that is good for the!

Hope you like it and that you give recycling a try when doing your cards or any paper crafting it is amazing what you find when you actually start looking around....

Talk to you soon.
