My Heart

Gather round everyone!!  It's time for another fun
Sneak Peak from The Greeting Farm!!

Today's peek is divine!

Let's look at the new My Heart Set!!

On this tag I used 4 different colors of Distress Ink
to create this colorful background.
Everything you see on here is a stamp from the kit,
except for the butterfly.
I colored her head separately, cut it out,
at glued it on top.

This is a very CAS card.  I wanted to focus
on this angel because she is so sweet!

You can win this set!!

Check out the TGF blog for the places you need to hop to!
Be sure to leave a little love for everyone, and she could be yours!

Check back tomorrow on the TGF blog for another fun sneak peek!!

Alter it!

Happy Saturday everyone!

Today I am posting a Saturated Canary project that I did
for their current Alter It challenge!

I altered a cereal box into a door hanger!
I like the cardboard that they make cereal boxes out of,
it's strong, but not super thick!

I used the image-


As you can see, there was no method to my madness,
Just threw on a bunch of goodies that I have been hoarding
in my craftroom.

Have a great weekend!!

Alter-Ego!!


Hello!

Welcome to DAY 2 of our fun contest announcement!

After a lot of requests to bring back special contests such as "Rockin Rebel", The Greeting Farm has a few FUN announcements to make today!

First of all, beginning in November, we will be discontinuing the Retro Fresh challenge and also the GVT, but have no fear, a new FUN contest will take place quarterly such as the one we're about to announce today.   In addition, we will be continuing all the Farm Fresh Friday challenges, so there will still be plenty of fun on the Farm!

We are also excited to announce another customer-wide blog hop opportunity for the holidays, so be sure to stay tuned for info on that right after the November release!

For now,  we are excited to introduce you to TGF's latest contest:




How FUN is this going to be?   We know there are a lot of you creative peeps out there who do amazing things with our line of stamps, and sometimes you love to kick it up a notch or two by switching heads, bodies, clothes, etc.   Well, with Halloween coming up,  we thought it was the perfect time for a contest, so here's your chance to do it to WIN a prize!

RULES:

1.)  You MUST use at least two (2) TGF stamps to create your character.

2.)  You must create a NEW project.

3.)  You can create a card, altered project, whatever you'd like.   On day 2 of our DT preview (10/24-today), the IN LINKZ will open.  You have until 10/31 (Halloween!) to create your "Alter Ego".  Winner will be announced on RELEASE DAY, November 1st!  How exciting will THAT be?!  Well, even MORE exciting because wait until you see the prizes....

PRIZES:

1.) Winner will receive their choice of two (2) 4x6 stamp sets  AND a GUEST DESIGNER SPOT at The Greeting Farm!  We are changing the way we do our Guest Designers as of this coming month, in the hopes that we can give even more talented peeps a chance to showcase their work.  Guest spots will now incorporate 1-2 features a month on the TGF blog and give LOTS of creative freedom to the designer, so believe me, you'll want to show us what you've got!

DEADLINE:

InLinkz will open on October 24th on the 2nd ALTER EGO post on the TGF blog.  All contest submissions should be uploaded by October 31st at 11pm CST.

To help you get into the mood, The Greeting Farm is having a 
holiday themed GVT!

Head start on the holidays!!
Let's see those Christmas cards ladies!!

I put a bit of a spin on mine, and made it a door-hanger.

Don't ya just love the new Holiday Anya 3!!

Not very traditional Xmas colors, but definitely fit for a girly-girl!

So glad it's Friday!!!


Helloooooo everyone!
Who wants to see what The Greeting Farm's up to today?
How a bout a new FFF??!!

This week's challenge is-
Terrific Tags!!
(make a gift tag!)

I don't know why, but I love making tags!  I have a million of them laying around,
better start using some!

Here's my tag-

I used the charming new Holiday Anya 3 for my tag!

I used a kraft tag for my base.  I then layered some cheesecloth and patterned paper.
It's hard to see, but the image is resting on a pretty sheer rosette.
I also wrapped some pretty white ribbon around it and finished it
off with a brad that I have been holding onto forever!

You know you want to go make a tag now!!

Head on over to the TGF blog where you can get all of
the challenge details, and some serious 
inspiration from the design team!!
