It’s my turn to post a challenge at The Greeting Farm today for Farm Fresh Friday! Because we’ve been celebrating TGF’s 5th birthday, I also wanted to celebrate TGF’s Anya!
So, for this challenge, I chose “Anya Lifts,” and altered a coin envelope to make a sweet treat holder:
Pick out your favorite Anya image, make something new and play along with us!

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.

TGF Farm Fresh Friday: Anything Goes!

Happy Friday, everybody! There’s a new Farm Fresh Friday challenge at The Greeting Farm today, and it’s an all-time favorite: Anything Goes!
 
I’m sharing a different type of project today: I made a pendant with the new Frou Frou Birthday stamp and some shrink plastic. The original image measures about 3.5″ wide x 4″ high. After heating the plastic to shrink the image, it’s about 1.5″ wide x 1.75″ high. 
 
 
 
I colored the underside of the pendant with Copics. Since alcohol-based markers don’t work well with Staz-On ink, coloring the underside is your best bet. The colors also intensify when you shrink the image down, so don’t worry if the colors don’t come out as dark as you like when you’re coloring.
 
Would this be something that you’d like to see as a photo tutorial? I have some DT post days coming up soon and I’ll put one together if you’re interested!

Switching It Up for Farm Fresh Friday!

Happy FRIDAY, everybody! Hope you had a great week and are ready to “switch it up” with The Greeting Farm!
 
The DT had a BLAST with this challenge, and I know you will, too! Our challenge for you this week is to make an entirely different image by switching the head and body of two TGF stamps!
 
I chose Creeper Crew girls Abbey and Monday for today’s card…so, by sticking Monday’s head on Abbey’s body, I now have:

 
Cool, right? Now it’s your turn to show us your switched up creations!

TGF Farm Fresh Friday: Thanks, Teacher!

Happy Friday, Friends of the Farm! I hope you’ve enjoyed all of our sneak peeks of TGF’s July release! Don’t forget about our New Release Blog Hop on Monday, July 1st!
Thank you all for the sweet comments you left for me and the other DT members as we previewed the Film Strip and Polaroid die set!
Today’s Farm Fresh Friday is all about thanking teachers!
Unfortunately, I don’t have kids, so I don’t make school-related projects. I think my gift card holder is kind of all-purpose, though…I just styled it with a school theme with the notebook designer paper and the blackboard strip across the middle.
I chose to feature Fancy Anya on my gift card holder because I picked her up recently and wanted to color her up! I made the gift card holder by folding a piece of designer paper in thirds, making sure it wrapped around the gift card, but leaving enough room to insert and remove the card easily. 
To keep it in place, I punched a set of two small holes under the notch that I cut at the top (using a small Spellbinders circle, but you could definitely use a circle punch). I looped some twine around the card and tied a bow, threading the twine through the punched holes. Once the bow is untied, you can pull the card out with the twine!
Here’s the info you’ll need to participate in this challenge:
  • You must use a TGF stamp (rubber, digi, or clear) as your main image.
  • Entries must be uploaded via InLinkz (at the bottom of this challenge’s post at the TGF blog) no later than Thursday, July 4th at NOON CST.
