Here I made one of my famous stitched heart banners. All of the things I love are on this card - embossing, stamping, sprayed seam binding, pins, crepe paper roses, and stitched hearts from old book paper! :)
I made these for the Paper Crafts Go To Gals challenge. Back in January, they asked me to try out for the Go To Gals magazine team! Imagine my shock! Well, after several weeks of trying out, needless to say, I didn't make the team. However, I am counting my blessings, being happy for what I do have, and staying positive! I feel very blessed that I was asked to try out.
On this card, I used a Melissa Frances pocket and turned it upside down. Lots of Melissa Frances products here, including the pocket, sticker, frame, and crepe paper. Flower is Prima and background paper is Pink Paislee - Daily Junque.
I wanted to share some other news with you as well today. I've recently decided to leave the Jenni Bowlin team and the Crate Paper team. Both of which I LOVED every minute of, but I just decided that things were getting to be too much for myself and my family. It's really hard to let something go that you love, but more important to give that time to the people you love the most. I hear that a lot in this industry. It's really easy to get wrapped up in things, and teams, and creating. But really, what is the most important thing in life? :) It will always be family.
Of course, I will still be creating and blogging, because I could never let that go all together. I still have Pink Paislee, Papertrey Ink and Melissa Frances. I am going to be doing a few retail kits here and there (more info on that soon) and I have some other things brewing for the fall. :)
Thanks for reading today! I have some blog posts set and ready to go the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned for Papertrey Ink projects on the 12th, 13th and 15th.
