Time to get HOPPIN' with TGF...and get SCRAPPY too!..


Hello and WELCOME to our very first TGF "SCRAPHOP"!   

We are so excited to be finally rounding the corner on the release of "SPOTLIGHT", The Greeting Farm's first ever full sheet of rubber stamps!  These stamps come die cut, and a bit larger to be suitable for your scrapbooking AND cardmaking needs.  There is SO much you can do with this kit, and we can't wait to see how YOU create with us when it's released TOMORROW, April 15th in the TGF Store!

What's more?  ONE LUCKY WINNER will receive "SPOTLIGHT" as the prize from today's DT "Scraphop" and will be chosen at random.  Be sure to finish hopping and then stop back by the TGF Blog to leave a comment letting us know you did!

While you're hanging around the Farm today, be sure to check out the FOUR NEW DIGIS by Marina Neira that are also going to be available tomorrow. The Critter Crew has some SERIOUS cuteness for you today as well...links to their blogs are on the sidebar of the TGF Blog!

For now, let's get this party started, shall we?   Here is the official order of the hop:

Jessica Diedrich <---you are HERE!
back to TGF Blog

I have to say that I'm really having a BLAST scrapbooking again.   It feels so good to know that I can do more than just cardmaking and also to be sharing these memories and creating a keepsake one photo at a time for my family.

I think that's why I stopped scrapbooking for so long.,..I got too "behind".  I just have to keep telling myself that with EVERY little 8x8 layout I am preserving a memory for a lifetime and beyond.  THAT really gives me the warm fuzzies!   So this project is of my SWEET little Princess dressed up in her favorite princess costume.  She adores Snow White...but not nearly as much as I adore HER!

Well, thanks so much for stopping by today!  Be sure to head back over to the TGF Blog to leave your comment and enter to WIN!  We'll announce the winner tomorrow during the release along w/ some more inspiration!

Thanks for Hoppin' with TGF!

I couldn't agree more, Jess! I am so so behind with my pages! My son's 1st year book is half way done and my daughter's...well...only a few pages! I really need to start back! Thanks for the inspiration, Jess! This is a great page! Pretty, cute girl too! Thanks for sharing!

Definitely an adorable little princess. And she even looks a teensy bit mischevious there :D

Fika said...

WHAT AN ADORABLE little Princess... where on earth did you ever find her? ha ha... The page you've created capturing this precious picture is beyond amazing! I can definitely relate to being behind on scrapbooking. But thanks to this new set, and seeing the amazing work everyone is doing, I've got to bug to start back up again.

This is such a cute layout. My DD loves to play dress up to. I know what you mean about being behind. DS is 2 and a 1/2 and I just started working on his 1st book. The last picture I did for DD was when she was 3 and she will be 6 next month.

Stampi said...

what a darling picture and I love your page it highlights the photo and you have added texture and the colours match beautifully...very enjoyable and I am with you and the feeling of being behind on my scrapbooking...I too will remember what you said each page is a memorie preserved...thanks

Jan Larson said...

Your layout is adorable. I love the way you used the grid lines to make a journaling box!! And I know what you mean about scrapbooking! I will never be "caught up" -- not ever -- so I just do it when I can to have fun. And it is so much more fun when you don't pressure yourself to get it done.

Kelly Booth said...

SOOOOOOOOOOO Cute Jess!!! Madeline is such a Cutie! I love this Layout, just PERFECT!

Angela said...

I agree about the memories!! Tha tis the biggest reason why I scrapbook!!! That and being able to showcase their photos with other elements and making their pic's more like work of art. I'm not only making a memory of them, but they also have a memory of me!! One day when I;m not around anymore my children can look at their MANY..... scrap album's and see my love all over them and how important they meant to me to give them all their life memories in albums for them to cherish.
Such a sweet Little Snow White Princess!!! I just love this page and that you made the picture of your daughter the center of attention!!
Hugs:)

Angie Blom said...

Oh my you must want to kiss those cheeks all day!! You little one is just a stunningly beautiful Princess!! I just love this layout Jess!! Xx

anna_chronistic said...

Sooooo know what you mean about getting "behind"! I think that's why I switched to cardmaking and started making all my "scrapbooks" on Shutterfly. Now, I only make regular scrapbooks as gifts, and do the quick-and-dirty scrapbooks for myself online. But I love the art of scrapping, though, so I'll never leave it entirely!

Your daughter is so lovely and that picture is precious! Beautiful page!
I took a hiatus from scrapbooking when I had my two little ones back to back and then I always felt too behind and overwhelmed! So, I totally understand how you feel! But I want to get motivated to get going again no matter what order the pictures get done. Seeing all these scrapbook layouts is such great inspirations!
