So I LOVE The Greeting Farm! and especially Club Anya because Anya and Ian are my favs! especially Miss Anya and My Guy Ians!!! and I am soooooooooooooo excited for tonight! and the release scheduled for tomorrow! As I am sure many of you are who are stopping in on my blog today he hee he... SO I havent had a lot of time to craft lately but I have made sure when I did I was saving up projects for tonight!!! there were more I wanted to do but sadly didnt get to finish =( But it's ok I'll show you what I have for now!
So for starters... I am a part of a cookie exchange with some of my family and freinds this year though I have not baked my cookies yet (want them to be fresh) I did want to make cards to go with each tray. There are 12 of us participating this year so I needed 12 cards... about a week ago or so on the CA blog someone showed us how she colored her images and photocopied them to make things faster....well I combined 2 TGF digis (I cropped out the gift from the birthday ian one and placed it on the Odette image) I then colored it all in Photoshop and printed out 12 copies at the size I needed! I was so excited because it went sooooooo much fast being able to print them instead of coloring 12 of each (of course I prefer to color when I have the time to do so but since I didnt it was a great alternative!)
This is what she looked like when printed
the card is created with a combination of TGF papers and SU papers, and the sentiment was by SU as well and the flowers were primas
Here are all 12 cards lined up together.... I didnt finish the insides yet but they will each include a recipe card inside for the cookies I am making
So next up.... I love the xmas sweeties set from TGF love love love them!!!! I am trying to make all my christmas cards with them.....for starters I am trying to make them all different but as it seems I might be running out of time I might be resulting to the photocopy option he hee but for now ....here are a few I have done so far
So teh last project I have to show off for now I did just for today!!!
Now before I show you, I want o give credit where credit is due.... Joni Did a whole series of these fabulous magazine houses and totally inspired me to do some of my own. I had a few left in my stash to play with, but I am a fairy tale kinda girl and did wizard of oz, peter pan and little red riding hood, and well I'm still waiting for further tgf fairytale images so I hadnt done any more houses =( since the 1st 3...well I decided I could do a special one just for christmas (hubby likes to have magazines in the bathroom ....wierd to me....but since thats where he likes to keep them I figured I could make seasonal ones to keep them in and hide them that will decorate teh guest bathroom as well ... when I started I thought of Gingerbread house but well as it progressed it is just a christmasy kinda house but I still love it!
So anyways like I said I wanted to give credit where it was due....this project was inspired by Joni's orginal idea but I made it my own
So we have lil santa Ian popping out teh Chimney and his sleigh waiting on the roof for him with many more houses to visit..... As Santa Ian was placing the presents under the Tree Mrs Claus Anya was ouside giving teh outside a lil something special as well!
Yes this house is in a Christmas candycane forest lol
yep those are lil lights dangling under the ice crystals and peppermint candies hanging from the bow
more peppermint candies and candycanes adorn the house along with the lights and a wreath hangs on the front door
and yep Mrs Clau Anya is all Fabulous in her Bling!
