SC333: A Greenhouse Thanks

Well, the creative juices seem to once again be flowing. I actually sat down yesterday to create. As I mentioned in a previous post, I am totally hooked on the Greenhouse Gala DSP. The colors and print are fabulous.

Using that as inspiration, I went in search of a sketch. I stumbled upon this one over at SCS. It was perfect for what I had to work with.

I had saved all the scraps from the Fun Flowers I cut out for the Petal Cone dies I had done. There's not enough for a full card, but when trimmed up, I had enough scraps for the small portions of this design. It just goes to show...never throw away those scraps, especially of paper you love ;)

Hope you like it & thanks for stopping by!

Wedding Favors II: Greenhouse Gala

If you saw my previous post, you know that I've been busy making these Petal Cones. I needed to make 90 of them for a wedding.

This is the second set that I made. I chose to use the Greenhouse Gala DSP for these. The colors in this pack are gorgeous and just perfect for summer.

I decided early on, that since I had to make 90, I would keep it simple. All the Petal Cones are Chocolate Chip. Each flower is made with a half sheet of the DSP. I used one side of the sheet for one layer and the other side for a layer. It's amazing how these are designed to coordinate. It made my job super easy.

These die cuts are both a must have. They have become my favorites. Hope you like them!

Wedding Favors I: Woodland Walk

Hi Everyone! Remember me....Julie Marshall. Yes, I'm still here. It has just been a busy quarter at school and I've had very little free time. Of course, that can't happen for long, right????

About 2 1/2 weeks ago, I got an email inquiring about these Petal Cone Dies. They were interested in about 90 for a
wedding. My first thought: can I make 90 of these? My second thought: do I have time to make 90 of these?

Well...I made 90 of these and it actually wasn't that bad. After being given the color scheme, I decided on the Woodland Walk and Greenhouse Gala DSPs. They had the majority of the colors we needed. Then it was off to decide on cardstock, ribbon and buttons. I loved playing with all these goodies and pairing them together.

The Woodland Walk DSP didn't jump out at me in the catalog, but the colors are gorgeous. This pack produced some of my favorite cones in the project. The greens and browns are fabulous together. Which is your favorite? Be sure to leave me a comment...I'd love to hear.

Thanks for stopping by!
