Layout Mania

Hello!

So my last project for The Greeting Farm will be posted in a few days, and I deleted my You Tube channel. Now I'm debating...to blog or not to blog. I have to say, I'm not big on blogging. There's not a lot of feedback or interaction with it so it's almost like a diary at this point, although I no longer put 'personal' things on my blog. At this point I think I'm going to keep it up and just blog when I'd like. A lot of design teams require that you have a blog, even for guest spots, so deleting it would remove my chances in the future of doing some design work for companies. I already deleted my You Tube channel so I think probably I'll leave my blog up, for now.

As I said, my last GF project is this month and sadly, I didn't make the 2018 team. That took the wind out of my sails, I have to admit. I'm trying to keep it positive, though. At first I did take it personally but there are so many reasons why someone else is picked over you so I decided to just get over it. I really have gotten a LOT of projects done just for myself (and friends) so it has freed up my time so that's a positive for sure. And my time on GF was amazing. The best team I've ever been on, hands down. So there's that.

Today I'm just going to share some 12 x 12 layouts that I've made but not posted. If you have any questions about them, just ask in the comment section down below and I'll try to get them answered for you. Thanks for stopping by!

Preview for The Greeting Farm! "Feels"




Hello everyone!

It's time for the November sneak peeks for the products that are about to be released on the 15th!

The first thing that I want to show you is a stamp set called FEELS! It's a super cute set of clear stamps that show a wide range of emotions on the characters, along with various word stamps that coordinate and of course coordinating metal cutting dies as well! I made some planner clips with them, I've never tried that before and I like to try new things. I think they turned out pretty cute!

Go to:


on the 15th to pick up your FEELS set!

Happy crafting!

The ONE LAYER challenge for The Greeting Farm!




 Are you ready for the monthly Greeting Farm challenge? This month's challenge is a ONE LAYER CHALLENGE! Show us your take on a ONE LAYER card!  Enter up to twice in NOVEMBER and you might win a gift card to use at The Greeting Farm! A GF image must be the main focus of your project but other than that, let's get busy and use those Greeting Farm images!



For my card I  made a watercolor splattered background, then colored in my image with chalk. After the chalk I decided to add a bit of watercolor to my image as well, just a little here and there.

Hope you like it and good luck with the challenge!
