My Completed Greeting Farm Project

Aloha and Happy Wednesday! I hope your day is going well. It has been gloomy n' rainy here in Hawaii, but nonetheless, I am blessed to be able to live in such a beautiful place. Now, yesterday, I've posted photos of what I was recently working on. Colored one image and then scanned and printed on my computer. I've heard mixed comments about how that is violating The Greeting Farm's angel policy. I've sent a message to Marie (owner of TGF) and haven't heard back. I'm NOT selling these projects, nor am I NOT distributing any of these images individually OR digitally. I think that was the main concern. So, praying that my creation was not in violation of TGF's policy. If it is, I will gladly remove my posts. But until Marie says otherwise, I'm gonna share. I don't think it would be a problem, especially in today's world of technology. Their digital images can be multiplied abundantly, and if I have them colored digitally, I don't see the difference.

Anyhoos... here are my completed projects. I turned them into front for Post It Note holders. I adhered the post it notes to some coasters I received from Ruby Tuesdays. Ruby Tuesday's people are so cool (at least the Hawaii ones). Whenever I ask for new coasters to use with my crafty creations, they are more than happy to go to the back and get me some new ones. So blessed!!! Anyways, I covered these coasters with DSP on the front, and black cardstock on the back. Adhered some magnets, so my friends can put these holders on any metal surface. Then added the cover on the post it note. The cover measures at 3" x 6", and I scored at 3-1/16" and 3-7/16". Glued on the back part to the post it note, then glued the entire backing of the post it note and cover to the covered coaster. I then attached the stamped piece of cardstock with sentiment sized at 2-3/4" x 2-3/4" of which the sentiment is from TGF. :) Then affixed the TGF image with foam tape, so that it pops on the cover. :) Lastly, I wrapped each one in a cellophane bag and tied it up with a matching ribbon.

 Cutely wrapped post it notes....

Can't wait to give these to my friends. I hope they will be delighted to receive a sweet creation from me. Thanks for stopping by!!

With Love In Christ,
Jen

The Greeting Farm Snuddle Anya Cut On My Sizzix eClips Machine

Aloha crafty friends!! Just sharing how awesome this machine is (to me). I hear great reviews about the Silhouette, but it has never ever made me want to give up on my eClips. I believe that the motor in the eClips2 is strong and resilient. The last machine before this, I owned was a 1st generation eClips. I eventually used it to the point of breaking down. Thus to try something new, I took a chance and purchased a Silhouette from Amazon, I was in the middle of a wedding project, and needed to cut out pieces to make ukulele centerpieces, and the Silhouette I purchased couldn't handle and broke down in the middle of my 7th ukulele!!! So happy that Amazon has an awesome 30 day return policy, I immediately returned the Silhouette, and ordered an eClips2 instead. The BEST DECISION EVER!!! I was happy that I already knew how to work the machine and the program. Never jumping ship again. LOL! :)

Today, I'm still using the same machine... no problems... here in one of my pics, I am using washi tape to hold down my cardstock, because my mat is no longer sticky, and I'm too lazy to re-affix adhesive. But I will be doing it sometime SOON!!! :)

Anyways, thanks for letting me share!!! Here I am playing with The Greeting Farm's "Snuddle Anya" stamp. Colored one stamped image, scanned then print on my printer using eCal's Print2Cut feature. Cutting nine of these at one time, using my eClips2 machine.





 Will post my finished projects after I'm finished with them. :) Thanks for stopping by!!!!

With Love In Christ,
Jen
