Farm Fresh Friday at TGF: Anything But a Card!

Happy Friday, everybody! Hope you’ve had a great week and are ready for a new challenge at The Greeting Farm! Today, we’re challenging you to make “Anything But a Card”! (And that was a challenge for me!)

After much brainstorming, I decided to alter this mini notepad, and I love the end result! I’m thinking of doing a tutorial on this one, because it’s a great little holiday gift or stocking stuffer that I’m sure anyone could make! And, of course, “Holiday Anya 3” is on the cover!

The sentiment I used on the notepad cover is from TGF’s “I Heart Sweaters” set. I masked the word “heart” and used the rest of the sentiment, substituting a small punched heart shape for the missing word.

Here’s the scoop on playing along with this and all of our Farm Fresh Friday challenges:
  • You must use a TGF stamp (rubber, digi, or clear) as your main image.
  • Entries must be uploaded via InLinkz no later than Thursday, October 24th 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 4×6 set!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulously creative weekend!


TGF FFF: Back to School

Hello, friends of the Farm! Are you ready for a new Farm Fresh Friday challenge?
It’s been a busy week here at my house; we’re getting some things done in the yard and inside the house. I’m also working on my DT assignments for next week because we’re having company come to visit! If you have kids going back to school, I’m sure it’s busy at your house, too!
Our theme for this week’s Farm Fresh Friday at The Greeting Farm is “Back to School.” While I don’t have anyone heading back to the classroom, I thought this would be a cool project you can adapt for anybody who needs reminders or has a to-do list!
I repurposed an old CD case to make this sticky note holder. I did have to take it apart and flip the front side to make the holder stand up, but that’s the most difficult part of the process!
I used the “Valentine Anya” digi and an apple stamp from my collection on the holder. I had to cut her hands and reposition them so she could hold the apple.
I also added gloss to the chipboard letters to the glitter wouldn’t flake off.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
