Papertrey July Blog Hop Challenge

We were given this beautiful picture as inspiration:

First step: study the picture for a few days

Step two: sketch a few (too many) ideas

Step three: collect supplies that match picture

 Step four: Have a blast and see what happens...

I had to play with gingham, buttons, stitches, and of course my Papertrey Ink popsicles =)
I cut felt for the fist time with my dies and that was awesome!

And then I wanted to try to make that rustic background and a CUTE banner.

It was such a fun picture I wish I had time to make more!
Have a great weekend!

  5. It was great seeing your process of decisions! Your cards turned out so cute in the end. Love your stitching. I always love the look but not enough patience. I really need to try it.
