Hello Sunshines! It's a beautiful Saturday here in the desert, nice and toasty, crispy, hot, scorching, you know. Let's see, today I am home with a crew of workers here to put stone on our fireplace. I'm so excited to see it all come together. They are finishing up rock on the outside of the house and will begin the process of bringing it all inside now. It's going to be so pretty! What's on your list of to-do items today? I need to make a few Father's Day cards. My husband, father-in-law, grandpa, uncle, brothers, and brothers-in-law are taking a boys trip to Alaska here soon to catch some fish. There happens to be a Sportsman's Warehouse in Anchorage were they'll fly into, so their gifts this year are gift cards to do a little shopping once they get there.
I have some fun projects to share with you today created with the sweetest kit in the world. The ohDEERme kits put together through Freckled Fawn, include indie crafts from various small business owners. Their goal is to promote businesses, inspire creativity, and supply hundreds with happy mailboxes full of loveliness. Each month a package will be available filled with handcrafted goodies, craft supplies from small businesses, and vintage loveliness--everything a girl needs to freckle her creativity with loveliness.
I've put together a few projects using items found inside the June kit. There is something so special about working with handcrafted embellishments and products. I was excited to see some of my friend Shelley's Flair badges included in this kit...love her trendy cameras and woodgrain hearts!
Handstitched tags...who could possibly resist? I added some Vintage Postal Washi and Glitter tape, but the sweet sunshine yellow tape comes in the kit. The stamps added to my card are from Papertrey Ink and include Military Hero, Heart-2-Heart #5, and Road Trip.
The paper used on the above cards is from Crate Paper's Storyteller collection. My new favorite addiction!
These darling paper bows are also included in the kit. So irresistible. I created some Summer treat bags and used them at the top to dress them up a bit.
And, my heart skipped a beat when I found my Tiny Tags die used to cut cork tags for this kit. I never would have dreamed, but they are the cutest things I have ever laid eyes on. The memo tags are also included in the kit. For the treat bags I used Papertrey Ink's Friendship Jar Summer Fillers and Strawberry Patch stamp sets.
Lastly are little mini envelopes found at Papertrey Ink that I dressed up and created tags from. The paper rosettes, Kraft tag, and Flair button from the kit...love the happy colors combined together.
The backside of the envelope tag shows more of the washi tape and then a darling Pixie camera sticker found in the kit as well. I had so much fun creating with these wonderful handmade treats.
You can see more projects using this kit created by other design team members on the I am Doe blog and be sure to check out all of the fun products available through Freckled Fawn. This is such a delightful place to shop for crafting supplies.
On to other news, Melissa Frances is having a Not So Shabby Trunk Sale in true Melissa Frances fashion.
Just a couple of peeks at what is available...so pretty, shabby, and elegant. I love all things Melissa Frances!
And, today I'm making a Stars & Stripes pie...
My husband's favorite and he put in a request for it for Father's Day.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Thanks for visiting!
