Oh What Fun we're having at The Greeting Farm!!!!!

Are you ready for another Christmas Greeting Farm preview? I AM! Are you a fox fan? I AM TOO! You're going to love this new foxy set called "Oh What Fun", which is filled with foxes in sweaters, hat and antler add ons, Christmas lights, a little Charlie Brown tree with additional ornaments...sentiments...a matching die. What more could you ask for, really?

Dying for it? It will be available on September 15, 2017, just click the link that I've provided for you above.  =)

I made two cards with this set, and I also made a little gift envelope all of the way on the bottom down there if you scroll a tiny bit. Those little envelopes are a cute way to send a gift card, a little note or something extra in your December Daily album if you do those. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Altered letters and some 12x12 scrapbook layouts!


Just a few random projects, all things that I was working on this week.

To start out I had purchased some plain white wooden letters from Michael's. I spray painted them red and navy blue, then used Mod Podge to adhere some super hero paper (Recollections Comic Heroes) to the front to make some fun wall decorations for one of my children's rooms. 

Also I did some scrapbooking this week. This layout started with my documenting my son's first day of school. (Craftsmith Weekday collection) But then I started filling in the paper which looks like a calendar sheet with things he loves, his current and future job, hobbies, etc. It's very busy, filled with his favorite things and I LOVE it. 

This layout documents my cat's displeasure with my son chasing him and force cuddling. My son is very determined to cuddle those cats, against their will or not. I used some Doodle Bug paper and extras, a few different kinds of Thickers, a cat paper clip from Hobby Lobby, cat stickers that I ordered from China on ebay and some enamel shapes and stickers here and there. 

That's it for today!
Thanks for stopping by!

"Plane Amazing" & "Beepin' Awesome!"

Hello Greeting Farm fans!

Today I used the "Plane Amazing" set that was released in August. I'm so NOT over it. This set is so versatile and can be used in so many ways, it's ridiculous. If you didn't pick this one up yet, do yourself a favor and do it today. I provided a link up above. You're going to thank me. Don't forget to pick up the set of coordinating metal dies, they'll make your life a lot easier! I had planned on making some DT projects one morning and broke out this set and literally played with them ALL MORNING LONG. lol They are so fun! I like to paper piece things so I paper pieced the clouds, the air plane, I added the heart stamp to one of the clouds. The possibilities are endless and it's so easy to make this set feminine or masculine! Give it a try! 

I also decided to add a card to this post from the "Beepin' Awesome" stamp set from August as well. Just imagine all the scenes you can build between these two stamp sets alone! Mind. Blown. 

Leave me a comment and let me know how you'd use these sets!
Until next time,
Carol Maitoza
