Through The Craft Room Door - Challenge #3

**2nd post, please scroll down for my Crafts and Me Challenge!**
I cannot believe it's JUNE already! My daughter graduates Kindergarten on Friday and they are predicting 90 degrees today! That means I'll be spending LOTS of time downstairs in the cool basement creating I hope! haha Since it is the first of the month, it's time for another Through The Craft Room Door challenge for you and it’s “Paper Piecing”.  This is one of the first techniques I learned way back when I first started stamping and it's still a favorite! You must have some part of your image paper pieced.  We have a lovely sponsor for this challenge and it’s Crop Stop, who has offered us a $15.00 gift certificate to her store.

Oh, it's been AGES since I've inked up any of my favorite The Greeting Farm stamps and this one has been sitting on my desk just waiting so patiently for her time! I love everything about her, I even want a pair of cowgirl boots now! haha She is part of the Creeper Kit released earlier this year. As you can probably tell, I paper pieced her dress and boots with matching papers from Echo Parks For The Record Collection. I love how it turned out. Paper piecing these stamps reminds me of paper dolls so much! LOVE it. Yes, I made ANOTHER bookmark! I'm working on getting product made for a craft fair at the end of summer and these book marks will be a top seller so I want to make sure I have lots of inventory so be prepared to see them more and more! :D I have a video tutorial on how to make these lovely bookmarks HERE.
