This is a fun idea that my friend Hazel put together, inviting myself and another friend Sarah to put together an envelope of goodies every two months and see what we all come up with!! We've been doing this for nearly a year now and have invited two more people to join us, Sandie and Sarah. It always gives me something to look forward too.
For this kit it was my turn and I packed the envelope with lots and lots of bits and pieces:
I included papers from Echo Park, images from Waffle Flower 'Welcome Spring' stamp set and images from Clearly Besotted. I also put in dies from Waffle Flower and some ribbon which unfortunately I don't know the brand. I can't wait to see what the girls did with all this!!
Card No. 1
For my first card I used all the images from Waffle Flower. I coloured them all with pencils, fussy cut them out and put them to the side. I used my mini-blending tool and Distress Ink to create a grass and sky area. The images were all adhered in place, along with the sentiment. And of course I had to add some yellow and blue sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
Card No. 2
For my second card, I coloured the sheep and butterflies with pencils, fussy cut and put them aside. I adhered the Waffle Flower die to the card front and used a circle die (from Couture Creations) to cut a circle from the yellow paper. I glued this in place with the smaller Waffle Flower die over top and popped the sheep up on foam tape. The larger butterfly was put on foam tape as well. I cut out the sentiment, put it on foam tape and glued the smaller butterfly to it. And again I dropped in with my yellow and blue sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
Card No. 3
This was so much fun and I realised that I never used the ribbon, which I had aimed to do and the reason I put it in the kit. I'm off now to visit the girls to see what incredible ideas they had:
Sarah - Sazzle Dazzle Crafts
Sandie - London Days
Sarah - Funky Fossil Designs
Hazel - Hazel's Paper Designs
I hope you pop over to the blogs too, you will be amazed at how different all our projects will be, even though we all had the same kit. I'm very lucky to have such talented friends!!
