Hi everyone! This week, May Arts has teamed up with the folks at Lawn Fawn for a week of crafty fun mixing paper and ribbon. Today is day two of the hop and you should have arrived at my twisted blog from Karen’s. Here is line up for today’s hop.
If you would like to start from day one, here is the schedule. I’m accommodating like that. 😉
What’s a hop without a little carrot on a stick to keep you going? Who wants a prize? How about *2*? Read through my post and the juicy, easy peasy, deets are at the end.
Now for my project! I used Lawn Fawn’s “Dewey Decimal” Petite Paper Pack. I have learned that working with 6×6 papers presents a challenge and I’m glad I did it. I was stumped for THE LONGEST TIME before my “AHA!” moment hit me like a bad hangover. Yes. It really hit me that hard.
First up is my gorgeous “Gorgeous” card. My middle daughter wears glasses and sometimes, she’s a bit self conscious about them. I made this card with her in mind. Glasses are cool and she looks uber chic in hers.
Seams can be sooooo unsightly so I trimmed the seam where my two paper meet with May Arts’ Crocheted Trim (433-14-01). My sentiment is from Glitz Designs and the eye glasses are from Retro Cafe Art. Of course, who doesn’t love a little Glitz and glitter? ::snicker:: See what I did there? ::snort::
On the inside of the card is a stash envelope. I shoved my Barnes & Noble membership card and some Japanese yen in there. Hey! I didn’t have a gift card or American dollars on hand. Don’t judge! Besides, yen is cool!
I trimmed the envelope with a some more awesome May Arts Twine (412-94, 412-17). I love the twine and I use it on pretty much everything. I even stare at it whispering, “My Precious,” when I feel lonely. Ok, not really but I would!
My daughter LOVES to read. She seriously plows through books like I do margaritas on date night with the hubster. What better gift to give a bookworm than a bookmark? I used my crochet trim and Precious twine again. This time, I added the yellow twine (412-27). I like to change things up and keep ya on your toes! Slap on some letters from Glitz and American Crafts and some pretty baubles from Prima and call it done.
You have been so awesome to read all the way through my snazzy post so here are the deets on the prizes. The prizes are your choice of 3 spools of May Arts ribbon AND a Lawn Fawn stamp and die set. All you need to do is leave a comment along the way to be eligible. I love it when things are easy.
