Even her logo is adorable. There's all kinds of cute digital stamps, party and craft supplies and more at her shop. The Catered Crop design team was treated to a couple of Claire's images for use in this challenge, and you can see all of them at the Catered Crop challenge blog in the upcoming days.
The challenge recipe ingredient for this week is buttons... and we've got an inspiration photo for you. Just use a button (or buttons) on your card and link it up at the Catered Crop kitchen. We'd love to see what you create.
I'm always at a loss for card layout ideas as I prefer to keep things a bit on the simple side and not so busy. So, I cased a layout I found on Dawn B's blog, my dear friend who shares similar styles and likes as me (Thanks, Dawn!). AND... she just joined us at Catered Crop. You will love her creations.
Isn't she adorable? Her little coat and scarf were paper pieced. All designer papers are from DCWV's Nana's Nursery. There's a bit of icy glitter on the ground, and the sentiment is ?? - mounted on a sheet of plastic without a company name. I love the soft, feminine look of this card.
I'm often asked about the miniatures that I use in my photos. I guess I'll have to 'fess up and admit that I love miniatures - another very expensive hobby. The little items I use are from the "General Store" that my kids and I put together over 30 years ago. How would you like to have been surprised by this dollhouse for the dollhouse? It was made for me by my oldest son, Thom, when he was about seven years old - and yes, he used an x-acto blade when I wasn't home. It looks pretty beat up now and has seen better days... but I will treasure it forever. 'So creative and thoughtful for a mere seven-year old.
I'll get the General Store cleaned up and share that with you soon. It's definitely going to be passed on to my first granddaughter, someday.
