The Greeting Farm July Previews Begin TODAY!!!

I'm BLUSHING!!!!!!

You're not going to believe WHY.... because I am a new TGF FARMER!!! I have literally been having to keep this secret for months! LOL And if you know me AT ALL, you know how hard that was and how much of a dream come true this is for me. I have been a BIG fan of The Greeting Farm since I first started stamping a couple years ago. I still remember placing my first order for Flutter Anya and seeing at the bottom of the order page that the company was located in the next town - so being bold as I sometimes am, I emailed the owner asking if I could save shipping & pick up the stamps - since then I am super blessed to know and call Marie my friend so this is a HUGE honor for me to be part of her & Jess's DT with the rest of this fabulous group of ladies. I am SUPER excited and nervous to get started with this July release. You are seriously going to LOVE LOVE LOVE these new stamps!

As if my own excitement weren't enough, I am not alone in it...be sure to check out the TGF BLOG today for the announcement of the rest of the NEW TGF Farmers and check out the TALENT I am amongst:


Jessica Diedrich, TGF Creative Coordinator


 and our Guest Designer who is NO stranger to TGF, Jen Shults!  Just wait til you see what she has up her sleeve for us this month!

How's that for a bunch of blushing beauties?!?   Well, turns out we're not the ONLY ones BLUSHING at TGF....

...introducing the BRAND-NEW TGF BLUSH SOCIETY!!!

We are thrilled to bring you TWO brand new card, scrapbook, and mixed-media friendly backgrounds to compliment SPLOTCHY released a few months ago....with our HEART Background and HELLO Background!   In addition, the pride and joy of the new BLUSH SOCIETY?   We bring you Blush Bonnie and Blush Babbette...two new "blushing beauties" that will be fantastic for cards, art journaling, and MORE!    Here is my project:
I created this art journal cover on a 5x7 canvas panel using Blush Hearts & Blush Babette. Isn't she the cutest?! I just love this new blush line and LOVE the hearts with that perfect messy splatter. :D You get two different size hearts in the set and the Blush Society Girls each come with their own sentiments that I have featured with them! How cool is that?!

For my card, I used Blush Bonnie with Blush Hello. I am also following this week's Mystery Monday Farm Fresh Challenge. I loved the layout especially for using the Hello stamp for my middle panel. Seriously, how cute are these new stamps?!?!

There is so much excitement buzzing around the Farm today, you'll definitely want to start on the TGF BLOG because we have a HUGE PRIZE PACK to give away today for visiting us NEW Farmers and leaving some love and your thoughts on the new "BLUSH SOCIETY!"  We can't wait to hear them!

That's it for me today, but I'll be back later this week, still blushing ;), with MORE TGF previews!  

Challenges I'm Playing:
The Play Date Cafe - Slate Blue, Barn Red & Grey

Lou Mac said...

Carisa Zglobicki!! This is AWESOME news!! Gaaahhhh!! I'm so happy for you!! Fleur Anya was the first EVA image stamp I bought - and she is still one of my faves to this day. I'm definitely going to have to start breaking my TGF stamps out again! It kills me to see them sitting their all unused.. but not unloved!! Plus - with my latest win of the last release, what more excuse do I need?!

I love both of your creations!! Those blush hearts are YUMMY and I LOVE LOVE LOVE Blush Bonnie. Her stance and expression are just priceless!!

How lucky are you living so close to the store?! I wish you the best of luck on this new venture!! xo, Lou.

Noelle Reese said...

HOLY COW! How cool! Take me to that still! You can't keep those secrets from me! You rocked the stamps on both projects! WTG!!!
