Shopping Our Stash --Who's Who :The Greatest Gift


Good Morning, Crafty Peeples!

Our challenge for you this week at Shopping our Stash is that your create a project that includes a photograph of a person or a stamped image of a person (humans, people, etc.)

I have chosen to use an image that was given to me as a gift form Christine Armstrong.
Christine is a Digital Artist for Whimsy Stamps and the owner of  Crissy's Art and Heart Blog.

Daddy's Heartbeat

You can find Crissy's Whimsy Images HERE
~~~~~~~~~~~
I don't do a lot of Clean and Simple, but one of those 'happy accidents'  was to dictate the final design.  For the CAS purist, I am sure this card has too many layers and would be a major fail in the 
"ease of production" which is the keystone of any good CAS project.
I am working on a Stationery Project using this image and,  if what is in my head actually translates to paper in design development, I think it will do justice to Crissy's touching and beautiful rendering. 



Thanks for stopping by!

Everything Tastes Like Chicken! - Yet Another Brown Paper Bag Creation


Good Morning, Crafty Peeps!

This week at Shopping Our Stash,  we want you to create a design that honors that most  humble of humble yard birds,  The "CHICKEN".  I was stumped, for a while,  because I really don't do whimsy.  I think I found a solution that works for me and for the theme requirement.

Rosh HaShana is fast approaching and I used this challenge as motivation to finally come up with a design for the invitations to my Seder.  Combining "Whimsy' with "Understated Elegance" proved to be rather daunting.

I placed the "Chicken" on the back of the invite and it flows.  Adds a little humor.. I like!
"I don't even want to tell you what this tastes like".






My original idea was to put a doughnut in the center section, but decided that these gummed pads would be a more practical gift.

I knew the crafting gods were smiling on me when I found this wonderful "save the date" paper in my stash!  


The invitation was made using a brown paper lunch bag.



In deference to my Jewish friends, "b'li ayin hara" this is not my acutal seder menu. I would never serve meat and dairy together. G-d forbid!    The items here are for display only.
