"Home is Where the Heart Is"
I have been so busy this month but had to sneak some time to play with the new "For Mother" collection from Pion Design and fabulous Green Tara goodies I received. I was given a pink and white/cream themed design team "challenge pack" from Green Tara to work with (pink is my fave color to scrap - thank you Alison!) and combined everything with the Once Upon a Sketch challenge for April too -
I just loved Nadia's sketch last month!
This is my daughter as a baby in our backyard wearing her favorite outfit at the time (I have a lot of pictures with her wearing this, LOL). Don't you just love the printed doily pattern on that paper? I enhanced it by using a Martha Stewart corner punch on the edge. The chipboard rose vine is from Dusty Attic.
Green Tara Products Used:
Cherry Blossoms Pale Pink
10cm petals. White Pack
Heirloom 6.5cm Silk and Organza Flowers Dusky Pink 12pcs
Loop n Tassel 10mm Pink Champagne
"Life is Beautiful" Card
You can never have enough blank cards for all those unexpected occasions that seem to just pop up. Here I used the Meg's Garden "Forget Me Not" paper collection which includes some amazing vintage image elements sheets - this is a card maker's dream. Combined with a 4x12 paper strip from the collection, it is easy to pull together an elegant card. I added some gorgeous Green Tara cherry blossoms, twisted organza/pearl trim and tassel trim, plus a stamped title and a pull tag... to really polish things off.
I modified my own template from my gingerbread house box that I made for Christmas and came up with this cute little birdhouse box and the roof is actually a card! The box is made of one 12x12 sheet of paper from the brand new "Forget Me Not" collection from Meg's Garden. Here I used Green Tara cherry blossoms, paper leaves, lace and trim. The bird was cut out of another paper from the collection and I watercolored it blue to match and added feathers. Thanks for taking a peek today.
