Lawn Fawn CHA Contest
Lawn Fawn is having a contest on their blog. They are asking for fans to submit cards using certain stamp sets and other guidelines! Here is Hello Foxy:
As you might know I sell cards at Paperika.etsy.com, and for my shop Valentine's Day is one of my busiest times of the year, so I try to get started very early on creating Valentine's Day cards for the holiday.
Hello Foxy materials:
White cardstock by Hobby Lobby. Light blue and deep red papers are from Bazzill papers. The fox, hello foxy, and the logs are all from Lawn Fawn's Critters in the Forest. White ribbon bow is ribbon from Offray. Copic Markers were used to color the fox. Red and white string from Target. Memento ink was used for my stamping. Lake City quilling paper for the red heart. Quilled creations for tools used!
I took a trip to visit my mom and stepdad about 6 years ago. I had lots of memorabilia from that trip and decided to make a scrapbook. I enjoyed making those first pages, and since then my style has changed so much. I never knew how much joy I get out of making things out of paper. It also is very relaxing for me when I am under stress.
I found the Etsy site through another website I frequent that is for scrapbookers.
I decided that, in addition to making my own albums, and gifts for friends and families that I could make some money doing it too, and that's how www.paperika.etsy.com was born!
