A Homespun Affair Color - Last day to enter color challenge!!

Hi everyone! Today is the LAST DAY to enter the color challenge for A Homespun Affair! To enter your project for a chance to win a prize pack from ME, go to A Homespun Affair to submit your project! The prize this month is a paper pack and accessories from Close to My Heart.

Here is the project I made for the color challenge:
I wrapped the wreath in red ribbon 1 1/2 width. I cut out the roses from the Art Philosophy cartridge and secured them with pearl head straight pins. I added some pearl trim in between the flowers and finished the wreath with white ribbon.

I also created a quick card as well! This was made using the Plantin Schoolbook cricut cartridge and my Gypsy.

Don't forget to link up your project before midnight CST! Good luck!!!

Flower fold card; New cartridge coming soon!!!

Hello!!!! I've been working away on some projects since I'm on vacation! Here'a little card that I made that looks complicated but is so very easy! I love making 3D objects and items! I love to make interactive items that are quick and easy but beautiful just the same. Here is a little card that I made. Now from first glance, it's just a little 4 x 4 card. But once you untie it...

It opens up to reveal this beautiful card!!! This flower card was so easy to make! If you want me to create a tutorial for this in an upcoming issue of our E-Magazine A Homespun Affair, leave me a comment below and I will make sure that a tutorial will be available! All the paper used came from the Lucy paper pack from Close to My Heart. The stamp is a Tilda stamp from Magnolia stamps. I used my Copic Markers to color Tilda!
