Summer is winding down, I feel it, my Little Bean feels it, and the butterflies are starting to flutter around in her tummy as she gets ready to head back to school. I love listening to her describe her feelings, telling me all about the butterflies and how they fly around inside her tummy and can't decide which side to go on and how she's scared and nervous and excited about so many things all at once. This is a magical age.
This week we learned that she needs glasses. I have never seen anyone so happy to be getting glasses in my entire life. I certainly wasn't happy about getting them when I was her age, but I didn't have cute pink with hearts, and black with flowers, and oodles of other choices to pick from when I needed them oh, so many years ago. :) She can hardly sleep and just about cries because the time isn't passing quickly enough until they're ready....little cutie.
This first card set was created for Emma's Paperie. Our challenge was to use misting of some sort and so I aged Baker's Twine for both of these cards by misting them with Glimmer Mist. I love how easy it was to do and will most certainly by trying it again. I used Clam Bake by Tattered Angels.
I love these sweet seed pockets and stickers from Jenni Bowlin and the photo frames from Heidi Swapp are a new favorite find of mine.
You can find a list of all of the supplies I used on these cards on the Emma's Paperie blog.
Lastly, a treat pail for a birthday boy, embellished with all sorts of fun things, Cakewalk paper, Story Teller chipboard, Jenni Bowlin chipboard buttons, May Arts wired burlap ribbon, American Craft wooden buttons, and Freckled Fawn Vintage Ticket Stub Washi Tape.
I'm busily packing up scrapbooking/papercrafting care package boxes filled with stamp sets, paper, stickers, chipboard, and embellishments. Each box will be different, each a surprise, each filled to the brim with things I can't use anymore. I'll be listing these care packages in my etsy shop very soon!
Thanks so much for your visit and have a wonderful weekend!
