A Homespun Affair - July Issue

So have you been following along! Today is the release of our second edition of our magazine A Homespun Affair. We have been working VERY hard to bring you some awesome designers, projects and tutorials! 

Here's the latest edition of our magazine!

What did you think of the flower tutorial??? Easy, peasey, right? Well here is a flower I made and I used it as an embellishment on a mini book. 

Here is a picture of the mini book

And here is a closeup of the flower! 

If you decide to make a flower or two, I would love to see them!!!! Just make a post linking back to my blog so I can see them!!! 

Now, don't forget I gave you a sneak peek in  my last post about my color challenge project. Did you guess what it was??? No??? If not, here is the completed project for you to see. But guess what??? I am the sponsor for this month's color challenge!!!! That means you get $25 in product from me from Close to My Heart. The colors for this month's challenge are Red, White and Blue in honor of Independence Day. You can make ANYTHING you want as long as you use these colors and as long as it is a new project. You can link back to A Homespun Affair for a chance to win. Make sure you follow ALL the rules for entry! We don't want anyone to be disqualified! And now on to the project!

I used a 12" wreath from Michael's. I wrapped in it red ribbon. The flowers were cut at 3" and 5" from the Cricut Art Philosophy cart EXCLUSIVE to Close to My Heart. If you want to purchase this fabulous cartridge, you can purchase it HERE. I used hot glue to affix some white stringed pearls in between the flowers. I also added a white ribbon. So if you want to make a project using the colors, don't forget to link your project. You have until July 23rd to do so!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!!
