For August I submitted 3 projects. This card using the new set "On My Couch". I was inspired by a picture in the latest Country Living Magazine that showed a white couch with colored pillows on it. Don't you just love these sweet little stamped pillows! I added a sticky pearl to the center of each one. I used a gray copic to shade the white sofa and to make a 'stitched' border around the 'rug'. I used Bitty Box Basics for the background and the pillows - and the rug was cut from Men Of Life Collection with an oval Nestability.
For my second project I used one of Lauren Meader's Timeless Templates called Pack a Picnic - the template comes in two sizes - this is the smaller one that measures a cute little 3"x3" not counting the handles. I used the On My Couch Additions set as well as On My Couch. The papers are Aqua Mist and Ocean Tides card stock, Bitty Box Basics and In Bloom.
I made mine as a little gift to bring to someone who is not feeling well - Here I filled the basket with white basket shred and cough drops. I really love the cute little kitty sitting so happily on this soft chair! I punched the top edge with an EK Success punch. The sentiment is punched with a Spellbinders Tag Trio.
For my last project I used another one of Lauren's Timeless Templates called Pretty Petal Pocket. This is the smaller one from this set. I also used the flower stem stamp from the fun new set "Every Day Button Bits". I thought the zinnias from my garden would look great inside this cute box. I had an empty shrimp cocktail glass that fit perfectly inside the box. (I just can't throw those bottles away after the shrimp cocktail is eaten - can you!?!?!)
I used New Leaf cardstock for the template and Bitty Box Basics for the panels. I stitched a border with my Janome Sewing machine and shadowed it with a grey copic. I picked the vintage buttons based on the colors of my zinnias and used all different shapes to make it intersting! I used the Spellbinders Tag Trio for the sentiment again. The little heart is from an older PTI set called My Punny Valentine.
Isn't this a great way to show off the flowers from your garden?! This one will be going to Marjorie, my 94 year old MIL who lives at an assisted living facility - she really misses her garden and loves when I bring her some from mine.
Today I'm off teaching a class at the Papertree, in Manchester, NH (Hey Michelle!) I'll show you what we made there in another post sometime soon!
Thanks for stopping by today - hope you have a great weekend!
