CHF Projects

Here is a layout I completed, and I just found a wonderful spot for CHF's singing swirly bird. It sells for $4.49 US at their store.

WOW! These stamps are of superior quality! Deeply etched and every image is crisp and clean. Here is a card I made with their new Wood Grain backgounder. I stamped it over a K & Co. script paper for a neat effect. Their backgrounders sell for $9.99 US unmounted (cushioned with smart cushion), or wood mounted for $16.99.
AND....keep watching CHF's blog and web site, good things are coming down the pipe, including new stamps!

Wood Grain Backgrounder!

Using the new Wood Grain backgrounder from Cornish Heritage Farms, I made a bench and front door simply by trimming the image and cutting it up into pieces. This stamp is so versatile, I just want to use it on everything. All the new backgrounders are selling for $9.99 each (unmounted), and it's free shipping in the states for orders over $35.00. Bargoon! Here are the cards I made tonight.

Birthday Wishes

This is my daughter Sophie. She just turned 2 and was so happy to blow out her candles and make a wish. I altered the photo to tones of brown to match the Paper Trunk papers. For a full list of supplies, you can see my layout at ScrapLovers.

Sophie at 2

I just adore this layout, and how it turned out. I am really trying to think about colour and how it matters! I tried to stick to neutrals and add hints of blue and black. I made the photo black and white so that it would not distract from the emotion I was trying to elicit. Those clock rub-ons are Imaginisce and I just love them! I actually took one clock and cut it up to get 3 different elements on my layout. Paper is Basic Grey. Thanks for looking.

Cornish Heritage Farms!!!

I received a phone call at 5:00pm yesterday. At that time, I figured the day had come and gone for a phone call from Cornish Heritage Farms. BUT, it was my lucky day! Liz Pomeroy, the owner of CHF (along with her husband), called and told me I was one of ten people chosen for their Fresh Faces Design Team. It was kind of like winning the lottery. She had said that it was a very tough decision, and that no one sent in rubbish. Here is a link to the announcement on Lisa Strahl's blog, where you can see all the other talented ladies that were chosen.

Here us a card I had sent in when applying. I made the background with food colouring and rubbing alcohol. I used Brilliance Ink for the stamping.
