Firstly, I need to apologise for my lack of blogging presence lately .... these past 2/3 weeks I've been crazy busy purging and cleaning out my house getting ready for the big FOR SALE sign to go up. So, it's up and now it's the waiting game ... not too much longer I hope as trying to keep a house tidy and presentable to sell with 3 boys is quite the feat!! My lack of posts and commenting is unfortunately a side-effect to all what's currently going on ... but hopefully not for too much longer! Please bear with me ...
Anyways, today I have my last 'Stamp Free Friday' project for PaperWorksCo. I decided to make this sweet flowerpot card using these gorgeous Cosmo Cricket Earth Love papers. You can find the tutorial over at SCS. The ribbon, buttons & papers are all available at PWCO.
Here's the inside panel of the card ready to be used for whatever occasion is needed. The next little project that I've done are these sweet flower/rosettes using ribbon. I punched out a circle and covered it with double stick tape (score tape used here). I then took a length of ribbon and starting on the outer edge ruffled it up around the circle until it completed the circle. I then took some hot glue and glued in the button in the middle.
The green one I used polka dot organza ribbon for a slightly different look and then pinned this sweet RAM image button in the middle.
Here are some close ups of the flowers/rosettes.
I hope I can use these sometime on a new project ... actually, one has already been requested by my mother! It's really fun to start looking closely at your stash to see what embellishments you can start making yourself ... Stamp Free Friday has definitely helped me do that!! Why don't you challenge yourself too?
Have a great day and weekend and whilst I hope I can be back soon with another posting I hope in the meantime I can do a bit of catch-up on my commenting - I've missed you all!!
