Cornish Heritage Farms' 12 Weeks of Summer Fling Blog Hop! Can you believe we're already on Week 4? Eeeeek, the summer is flying by! This week we are featuring Tom Allen's Friendly Kritters line.
If you're hoppin', then you've probably just come from CHF's Be Creative Blog, and you know all about this gig. Your next stop is Tracy's blog.
If you've come here all on your own, let me fill you in with the basics, 'cuz there's candy to be won: Hop along to each participating blog. Leave a comment (BTW, you don't have to comment on EVERY blog, but if you do the whole hop - 5 stops in all - you'll have that many more chances to win!). Simple as that. What's in it for you? The chance to win one of two gift certificates, that's what.... to use on anything you want in the CHF store! First prize is a $25 gift certificate, and second prize is a $10 gift certificate. All comments must be made before this Thursday, July 1st, midnight EST. That's some seriously great candy for just leaving a comment. I'm just saying...... :)
If you've already got a Friendly Kritters stamp or two and are feeling creative, you might want to make a little something and post to the special CHF gallery - that will get you in the running for the Design Team's Favorite prize, which is a rubber stamp/stamp set of your choice (up to $16.99).
Anyhow, on to my project. I didn't have any Friendly Kritters stamps until a couple weeks ago, when I couldn't resist getting this sweet Honey Bees image. I've owned the Sweet Bee set from the Rummage Bin line ever since it came out, and this little Kritter stamp was just calling to me to complete the whole honey bee theme.
I decided to make a little "Honey Do List" paper pad using scrap printer paper - you know, those pages that print out with only a line or two on them (say, after you've printed out a copy of your online receipt for something, or an email). I've been collecting all of that, and instead of tossing it in the recycle bin, I cut in all into quarters (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) to use for my lists. I made a cover from a 10 inch by 6 inch piece of patterned paper (you could also use cardstock, or a combo of the two to make it a little sturdier). In my case, I used Basic Grey's Kioshi line of papers. I scored it at 4 3/4 and 5 1/4 inches to make room for the paper. I used a little Distress Ink in Peeled Paint along the edges, then stamped the lace border from the Sweet Bees set along the edge using Dusty Concord.
That's it. A quick little recycle job that makes shopping lists and "to-do" lists just a little cheerier.
One last little card, this one using the Mother Hen image that my fellow DT Kristine sent to me (Thanks, Kristine!!). Deets in the Gallery. Happy Hoppin' and Good Luck!
