Cheeky Geeky

Click HERE for There She Goes -  Little Treat Blog Hop

Welcome to the MAY PREVIEW DAYS with The Greeting Farm!
Before I get to showing you some brand new projects today with some FRESH new stamps, we have a few announcements we'd love to share:

**  First of all, we are adding ONE NEW PREMIERE FARMER this month!  Please help me welcome RACHEL PARYS to the TGF Design Team... we are thrilled to have her and her beautiful card making skills on board!

**  Second, we've had some changes to TGF Challenges and are very grateful to have heard such positive feedback so far as we've turned them over to our Showcase DT.   Please make sure you visit the TGF Blog (and check out it's cute new makeover while you're there!) and tune into the Left-hand sidebar for all of our current challenges in ONE place!  

**  We'll be giving away ONE stamp during each day of previews, so be sure to visit the TGF BLOG for that information as well!

** Last but not least , please join us for our RELEASE DAY BLOG HOP, prizes, and fun on MAY 1st, when FOUR NEW STAMPS will be available on the Farm!   



If you've been a reader of my blog for awhile, then you know that I have a serious girl crush on all of The Greeting Farms Cheeky images!!  So when my design team stamps arrived (I'm always so excited that I rip the packages open while I'm standing at the mailbox) I kissed the stamp and literally skipped back into the house thinking of all the fun to be had with her!!

Let me introduce to you....Cheeky Geeky!!



Acckkk!!  Isn't she AWESOME?!?!  Oh gosh, I just LOVE her!!  xoxoxo

I used papers from Crate Paper's School Spirit Collection and machine stitched all paper panels.  Behind the image, I placed a piece of cork and heat embossed the sentiment onto some Antique Gold Satin Scalloped Edge ribbon from the Ribbon Carousel.  (Click HERE for a tutorial on how that's done.)
I applied a generous amount of StarDust Stickles to her headband and Glossy Accents to her glasses.


For my second project, I made a little notepad for myself from a plain kraft covered notepad that I bought for $1.  I used these beautiful DCWV adhesive backed fabric papers that I had been saving (for just the right little project) to decorate the cover.  (I did NOT remove the paper backing since I knew that I wanted to machine stitch on the fabric and the backing paper made it a little more sturdy.)  I created the "notes" using MFT's By the Letters Die-namics and added some gorgeous Festive Fushia Vintage Seam Binding.  I adore how this came out and I'm using the notepad for all of my "crafty" notes!!  :)


I know all my TGF Fans are going to want her...but how would you like a chance to WIN her?!?!  

Just leave a comment for me and on Rachel's Blog today 'cause there's a little Cheeky Geeky surprise hiding on one of our blogs!  Next, make sure you go to the TGF Blog and let us know that you stopped by our blogs and we'll announce a winner of Cheeky Geeky tomorrow!!  
(You have until 11:45 pm CST tonight to comment and win)



Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

I have been surfing on-line more than three hours nowadays, yet I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is lovely value sufficient for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the internet will likely be much more helpful than ever before.

Hi Wendy. Were do I start? Well, let me first start with how much I love, love your card. She is just so beautiful and I love your rich color combo on this. I just love the 'Talk Nerdy to me'... I got such a kick out of it that I made my hubby come and see. She is just gorgous! Then I can so see why you have been saving your fabric papers. This is so awesome! I love this color combo as well and that pink is just done to perfection. :O) I can not wait until tomorrow's previews. I am thinking that I really need to save some money between now and May 1st as I'm so going to need it. lol... Thanks for sharing your creativity with us. Hugs, Lisa G
