Hey you guys! Are you ready for a BLOG HOP full of SUNSHINE?!?!
(Holy cow I don't even know where to start w/ all the fun announcements in this post today! YIKES! Well, I will start by saying that SUNSHINE is now available at The Greeting Farm! Hooray! This brand new 8 1/2x11 FULL SHEET of diecut rubber is waiting for you so go...grab one!)
I have a fun layout to show you today from the kit, but first up for FUN.... I was THRILLED beyond thrilled when my bloggin' friend AMY (The Caffeinated Cropper) asked me to be her Guest Designer for her BRAND NEW KIT, "Pocket Full of Sunshine".
Have you guys seen Amy's kits? Well, if you've been a reader of mine for a while, you've definitely SEEN them. Her first kit, "The Beez Kneez" was a fave of mine-you can see my work with it HERE and HERE. Amys kits are not only a value but they are exquisitely put together and are SO stinkin' fun! Seriously, CHECK OUT all that you get in this kit, "Pocket Full of Sunshine":
I tell you what, the timing couldn't have been better! Since today's release at TGF is all about the sunshine as well, I started out with this layout:
I used the sketch from Jaci's TGF Newsletter contest layout and added lots of fun papers and embellies from the kit!
Second up, Mercy's Tuesday sketch Challenge:
I created this quick and cute 5 minute card with these awesome elements from Amy's "Pocket Full of Sunshine kit". Aren't the colors yummy? You can check out what Mercy and the rest of the MUSES (links on my sidebar!) did with this fun sketch and be sure to play along!
Last but not least, I totally fell in love w/ one of the elements of this kit and altho I got 'krafty' as opposed to the bright blues and yellows in a lot of the kit, check out this awesome newspaper "Crafty Chronicle". It's obviously totally fake newspaper articles but the sheet I got fit me so perfectly, check me out, LOL:
I am loving all the flowers and buttons in this kit, too! PLUS there are RUBBER STAMPS from PaperMakeup, digital stamps, and coupons for money off IN ADDITION to all the fun stuff you get! Now, it's time to HOP!
