I like your style!!

Gosh, does it feel like forever since I have posted anything or what?!  So sorry everyone that I haven't posted all that much lately.  You know us crafter's - we get into a rut, and sometimes its hard to get out of it. I have spend a lot of time in my craft room - just not creating all that much.  I have been organizing mainly. When I do post - its been for Lawnscaping as I need to get my projects done for them.

Well- I hope I am slowly coming back to crafty life!  Today, I am revisiting some of my Simon Say Stamp card kits.  I spend the money on these and need to get my money's worth instead of them just sitting in the zip lock bags they are stored in.

Today's card is from the Feb. 2013 card kit.  I don't believe you can purchase this entire kit as a whole now - but I am sure you can get some of the supplies individually - like this stamp set.

I really don't create too much of the vintage look - but I liked how this one turned out.  I stamped the two designs of the dresses onto some of the patterned paper from the kit, and fussy cut them out.  I stamped the "hanger" image and them paper pieced the dressed onto the hangers.

I am really trying to use supplies and tools in my craft room that get neglected and not always use the newer stuff.  With all of the new CHA product coming to stores soon - it will be hard to not go crazy and  buy everything under the sun - so my goal is to only buy what I KNOW I will use!  

Hope to be back soon with you again to share another project soon!!

Lawnscaping Challenge #62

Happy Monday!

It is a start to a new week, and another new challenge over at the Lawnscaping Blog!  This week it is about paper piecing!  This is one of my favorite techniques to do because it adds fast color and fun to your projects!!  Be sure to join the design team, and the Facebook Inspiration Team { that's me! :)  } for some fun and AWESOME inspiration!

Here is my card - I used both "Good Fortune" and "Lunar Lights" to great this fun birthday card!
I used papers from the BG collection "What's Up" Collection.  I thought the colors in this collection would go great with this Oriental feel to my card.

Be sure to play along - Lawn Fawn is the sponsor this week!!  And, you KNOW that's awesome! :)
Can't wait to see all the wonderful projects in the gallery!!
