A House of Cards

Monday, September 15, 2008

You all should head on over to...

the Lime Tart gallery! All of the new projects are posted and the gallery is full of wonderful goodies by the design team. Get yourself drink and a snack and sit back and enjoy the view! ;)

Here are my projects using the September Half Tart.

First is a layout about my daughter, Grace. Loved this teal and purple color combo.


Next, I made a candy treat bag gift set. Who would want some yummy chocolate in a pretty little package?!

Next is a set of decorated wooden hangers for a baby's room. I got the hangers a long time ago in the Target dollar spot and have been waiting for right time to do something with them. This kit was just perfect for that.

Last, but not least, is a card using the Heidi Swapp crystals in the kit. Using the crystals was a bit of a challenge for me. When I first saw them, I just thought of them dangling or hanging off of something. But, I started pushing them around, put them in a circle, and I all of a sudden saw a flower. I added the stitching (when don't I nowadays ;) ) and voila!

So now I have a little challenge for you... if you have the Lime Tart September Half Tart kit, show me an unexpected way to use the crystals. If you don't have the kit, show me an unexpected way to use a non-scrapbooking item on a papercrafting project. You can choose the type of project. I'm not picky about stuff like that. Cards, layouts, altered items... I like 'em all. And now for the good stuff, if you take my challenge, link your project up here by Monday, Sept 22 and I will randomly choose a winner for a gift certificate to Just Johanna's Odd Bird Planet Stamps (the US distributer for Lime Tart kits). Maybe I'll even throw in a fun, little box of goodies too. ;)

Hope you all have a great week. Happy creating!

I LOVE THE CARD WITH GRACE. OR IS IT A LAYOUT? I WISH YOU WOULD FRAME IT AND SEND IT TO YOUR WONDERFUL HUBBY. YOUR HUSBAND WORKS SO HARD AND MUST BE THE BEST GUY IN THE WORLD. YOU SHOULD LET HIM TAKE IT TO HIS APARTMENT IN SOUTH CAROLINA.

I love the treat bag set! Especially that it is using a lunch box! With the candles on each little pouch it would be easy to put in the right number of candles for a birthday without setting off a fire alarm. ;)

The crystals for flower petals are also great! I need to remember to pull out things that aren't necessarily intended for making cards, at least for cards I'm not mailing!
