Flapper Girl

Happy Sunday to all! I had a lot of fun participating in the Anya fashion show this weekend that I learned about on The Greeting Farm blog. The challenge was to use any Anya stamp from The Greeting Farm and dress or "glam" her up. As soon as I saw the hat on Anya, I was reminded of a hat that Renee Zellweger wore in the movie Leatherheads. While this movie wasn't my favorite, I'm thankful for the inspiration nonetheless. I thought the hat would look great paired with a little sequined flapper dress. The dress was created by layering tiny strips of ribbon that were attached to very thin strips of Sticky Strip adhesive. Tons of Stickles glitter glue was added to the ribbon stips once the dress was assembled. Not only is Anya's dress full of *bling*, but even more Stickles were used to embellish the hat and glittered brads were used as flower centers on the sentiment anchor...she just sparkles in real life!

Thanks for stopping by today!

So Groovy

I am feeling so groovy right now....and for good reason! I am excited to announce that I have been selected as a January Card of the Month designer for InStyle Stamps. I think Roxy is downright adorable! One of my favorite things about this card is her earrings, which are actually glittered brads. The peace sign was created using Nestabilities to cut a circle shape out of brown felt, and then the remaining cuts were done freehand with a craft knife. I know....freehand cuts....this probably sounds dangerous to those who know me, but I survived it. :)

Have a groovin' day!
