I'm a TGF Premier Farmer!!

What is a The TGF Premiere Farmer?  It's a small group of designers that have been hand selected by Jess and Marie of The Greeting Farm to bring to you a broader spectrum of samples and ideas than you've ever seen before during preview week!!  And they picked me....ME!!!!  OMGosh, if you guys only knew how crazy excited I have been and how hard this has been to keep to myself....I've been about to bust!! :)  I'm so tickled to have been selected to be a part of this amazing team of ladies!!  :)    
I was very excited to get started with one of newest stamp sets...Miss Anya Garland.  And today I'm going to share with you two projects from this adorable stamp set. 


I decided to keep the card design simple so that Miss Anya with her sweet little hearts on a string could take center stage.  I didn't even reach for any designer papers...just embossed some kraft cardstock, a scalloped square, and some luscious 3/4" V Striped Red Twill from the Ribbon Carousel.  


For my next project, I created a Valentines treat box (which holds 3-4 Ghiradelli chocolates) with Miss Anya holding a banner.   


I so enjoyed creating something for Valentines and taking a little break from all the Christmas projects!!   Not to mention I've been dying to play with my newest paper pad from My Mind's Eye (Love Me) ever since I got it.  :)   Star Dust Stickles was added to the hem of Miss Anya dress and I popped the image up with foam tape for dimension.  And once again, I used some gorgeous 5/8" Fushia Satin Scalloped ribbon from the Ribbon Carousel and tied a tiny little bow using my Bow Easy.

Making this treat box is so VERY simple.  For the base I used the largest Spellbinders Classic Hearts & Scalloped Hearts dies.  Next, to create the box you simply cut a 4" x 4" square and a 4 1/8" x 4 1/8" square for the lid.  Score both squares at one inch on all sides.  Fold on your score lines, cut your slits and adhere with Scor-Tape or other strong adhesive.  Creating the entire box, honestly only took me five minutes!!    I plan to make more to give to the kids for Valentines!!  xoxo  :)


I truly ADORED coloring these sweet Miss Anya Garland images and I hope you will stop by again on Dec 27th so I can share MORE projects from this newest The Greeting Farm release!!


Thank you so much for stopping by today. 
I send you all my love and hope that you and your families will have a VERY Merry Christmas!!!  xoxo
