FFF - Recycle it!

Hiya Farmers! Farmer Kristina here to provide some inspiration.Welcome to another Farm Fresh Friday.

Before we move things along, 
we need to check out the winner of last week's challenge
Lovely Layers

Please email Jessica at for your fun prize!

Now onto the challenge. This week the challenge is...
"Recycle It!"

We all have so much stuff that we throw out every day, but do you ever look at it and think ... hmmmm ... I could use this on a card. Well now is the time - whether it be old wrapping from a present, acetate from packaging, cardboard, fabric - anything. Have a hunt around and come and play.

The Design Team have done a great job finding bits and pieces to recycle.

Jodie has created a stunning Winter Princess Frou Frou! She has used an old embossing folder package to create the embossed snowflakes background and then inked it with silver distress paint.

Chitra's card features Oliver (Journey). Chitra has cleverly used a piece of an old pair of jean (which she turned into a new skirt) to make the banner.

Lysa has used Anya from "I Heart Sweaters" set. Lysa embossed a piece of clear acetate packaging, used leftover cork from a DIY project and baker's twine from some gift packaging.

Marcy has made a beautiful valentines card using Amelia from OA - Valentine. Mary used some cardboard from some old packaging and red jute that was wrapped around a present.

For my card I used Ballerina Anya (retired). I used some cardboard packaging from a perfume set I received for Christmas - it was too nice to throw away. This little charm was on the packaging as well.

So now - it's your turn! We want to see your gorgeous recycledcreations!
Here are just a few simple guidelines to play along with us:
  • You must use a TGF stamp (rubber, digi, or clear) as your main image. 
  • Entries must be uploaded via InLinkz (below) no later than January 30, at NOON CST. You can add a direct link to your entry from your personal blog, SCS gallery, Flickr or TGF galleria. (If the InLinkz tool is missing, feel free to link your submission URL in the comment section.)
  • The fabulous prize: A random participant will be selected to win their choice of an in-stock SINGLE RUBBER STAMP OR a 4x6 set! 
Have fun!
Thank you for playing!

All you need is LOVE...

Hello everyone, it’s Chitra here to share a card I made for Wednesday inspiration post for you all. I used this super sweet Cuddle Anya(retired) for my card and I have to say that she is the one in the first place who brought me into TGF land and OFCOURSE I instantly got hooked!!!


Isn’t she so cute!!! I stamped her on crafters companion ultra smooth cardstock and colored her with copics and paper-pieced her teddy hat. I used DP’s from Recollection. For embellishments I used some pearls, washi tape, and mini cloth pin. Finally the sentiment is computer generated.

See you tomorrow with our new Farm Fresh Friday challenge!!!

Birthday Ian

Happy Tuesday!

Lysa here popping in to share a card I put together for my nephew who is turning the big 1-0 in a few weeks!  I used Birthday Ian and wiped away the "Y-O-U" letters in the banner he was holding and added in '"t-e-n" just for this occasion! 

Having lots of fun making all these BOY cards, 
(they can be kinda tough when all we want to do is add sparkles and ribbons to make it cute & pretty)
but it is SO easy when you have these adorable Ians to choose from!

Be sure to check back in tomorrow for another WOW'd Me Wednesday.
Maybe YOU'VE been spotted! :)
