Hey, everyone! Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons (PPPR) Friendship Blog Hop. My fabulous DT and I have created Friendship themed projects using PPPR files. I've also created some HUGE freebies for you, just for hopping along, and you have a chance to enter to win a $15 Gift Certificate to PPPR on top of that. Plus, we're kicking off our next monthly challenge. So, let's get to it!
You know, as a designer, I don't have as much time to play with paper as I used to. But, when I do have an excuse to do some paper crafting, I just LOVE it. So, I end up making a bit more than I intend to. I had so many ideas of what I could make with a friendship theme, but I couldn't decide which one to choose. So, I decided to make a little set of 5 smaller friendship-themed cards. Here they are:
I wanted all of these cards to tie together and look somewhat cohesive, so I used the same layout on each of the 4" square cards. I also tried to keep the patterns somewhat consistent by choosing stripes for the backgrounds and a solid-ish coordinating pattern for the circle. Then, I printed and cut the images, adding Peachy Keen Faces to some and just doodles with my white pen to others. The sentiments are all on similar banner shapes (even though the train card does deviate from this a bit...the sentiment didn't fit on the original banner I cut). I popped up all of the images with foam tape and then added 3 enamel dots to the upper left corner of each card. Here's a closer look at the cards:
And, here are some of the products I used to create my cards:
Our hop also kicks off our 9th monthly challenge. Yippee! The theme this month is ANYTHING GOES. WOO HOO!!!
