Congratulations on your new home!

** 1/13/16 Winner at Crop Stop! **

Hi everyone! A big ol' Happy New Year to you all! I am really embracing 2016 - I feel like it's going to be a most awesome year! I'm happy to share my Love to Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for our first challenge of the new year, LTSCB #69 - New Beginnings! We're being sponsored by Julia Spiri Digital Stamps, Bugaboo Digi Stamps and Dr. Digi's House of Stamps! Come play with us! We want to see a project depicting something new - new year, new home, new baby, new job, etc.

I chose the adorable 'Birdhouses' digital image from Bugaboo for my new home card featuring three layered coordinating papers with stitching. I mentioned a few posts ago that I treated myself to a Janome Sew Mini 124 sewing machine during a Black Friday sale, and used it on all the layers on this card. I really love that little machine! :D


The 'home' sentiment used on the front is from a new clear stamp set I got a few weeks ago and goes perfectly with this image. I cut it with an oval SB die and layered it on a scalloped die cut, and added a white heart button. And then there's my signature big bow created with yellow wrinkled ribbon.


I kept the inside simple as I generally do, with just a stamped sentiment on a layered panel.


Would love to enter this new home card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury Ivory and Fresh Asparagus cardstock, Cricut Greens & Blacks cardstock, Graphic45 Botanical Tea 6x6 papers
  • Stamps: Bugaboo Digi Stamps Birdhouses digi, Paper Pretties Everyday Miracles stamp set (front sentiment), GKD Warm Spring Wishes stamp set (inside sentiment)
