Hi! Welcome to my craft blog! I am #3 on the list. You probably just came from Mrs Martha's blog, LOVE her! I am so excited for the new catalog to start today!!! Our blog hop features products from the new catalog. Exciting no? YAY!!!
My projects are done with one of the new hostess sets called Priority Friend. From the moment I saw this set I loved it!
My first projects were very simple and true to the character of the set. I love the design of vintage envelopes to I designed a card to mimic that. I used strips of Real Red and Night of Navy to create my background. I LOVE the way that it turned out. So retro and fun! My second project was the little package you see pictured above. I think that this one is my favorite of all. It is the perfect size for little treats to give to a friend or neighbor.
After I finished the first two projects I was loving the Americana feel and just had to keep going. I made this little pinwheel for my 3 year old to play with at the parades this July. It uses a sheet of paper from the new Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper and then just plan Night of Navy cardstock. I wrapped the Navy around a skewer to made the stick that he holds on to. I also made a second pinwheel that has a little girl in the center.
I also wanted to show that you didn't just have to do mail things with this set. This is a baby card that I made for a friend of mine. It uses two of the 2011-2013 in colors Pool Party and Island Indigo. I also used the hounds tooth embossing folder.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope that you liked my projects! Hop on over to the next blog on the list #4 which is my dear friend Stephanie.
