Time to Celebrate...

Please scroll down for today's other posts.

The Greeting Farm's First Anniversary! Happy Anyaversary, TGF! Hope many many more to come!!

Hello fellow crafters and blogging friends! I am sharing with you a special project I made in honor of The Greeting Farm's First Anniversary. I am so happy to join in the celebration! I've only discovered TGF recently and am hooked on them! All TGF stamps are so adorable and so much fun to color!

Here are what's included in this project: a birthday card, a set of jewelry (earrings, bracelet and necklace) with altered jewelry box, a matchbox filled with chocolate kisses and a matching cell phone charm. I think most girls would love to receive jewelry on their birthday. Also, what birthday would it be without something sweet and some kisses? :)

This is a good chance for me to work on my jewelry making too. I've put it off since I started making cards a few months ago. I am glad I was able to incorporate these two hobbies of mine together.

Hope you like my project!


Birthday card and matchbox filled with Hersey's Almond Kisses (my favorite)

Bracelet, earrings, necklace cell phone charm, and altered jewelry box




Project Details:
Stamps: TGF Annika, The Paper Company, Hero Arts. I used shrink plastic for the charm, earrings and pendant. I stamped Annika onto the plastic and colored her with Staedtler colored pencils. I then shrank her with an embossing heating tool. I didn't want to turn on the oven for a small job. Maybe next time when I need to make a whole bunch. I am thinking about making some key chains. :)
Ink: Mememto
Papers: American Craft patterned paper. Unknown cardstock
Embellishments: flower pins, ribbon
Tools/Others: Hersey's Kisses, nesties, embossing folder, circle punch, scallop circle punch., acetate, jewelry tools, crystal beads, crimp beads, bead stringing wire, jump rings, lobster clasps...and other jewelry supplies.
Thanks for stopping by!
