That would be the Create with Connie and Mary Spring Edition 2013 PREVIEW WEEK! I just HAD to hang up a welcome wreath to kick off our favorite time! We love 'showing off' what a Create with Connie and Mary edition is all about and that's why we have Preview Week! A couple things about Preview Week before I get to my project...
- Visit us EVERY DAY to see who who is sharing a preview project and WHO HAS BLOG candy! (HInt...today it is me...Mary Brown aka stampercamper!)
And now on to my BIG SPRING (edition) welcome...
I so totally fell in love with the Pop-Up Posies kit in the Spring Mini! As soon as I saw it I told Connie I was going to make a wreath with it. Well...it was one of those times that what was in my mind and what was happening while I was working on it were two different things! I'm quite known for working ahea as last minute just is sooooo not me. Want to know something? I didn't finish this up until THURSDAY!!! My, oh my...so far behind (by my time that is!) But I will say...I do LOVE the way it turned out!
Now with my project (and the way I did my flowers), you will have some leftovers that you can use on other projects (always a plus!) and I really didn't add much extra beyond the kit...a couple of ribbons (because we ALL have TONS of THAT laying around) and a little extra paper. Oh...and I also used the Typeset Alphabet dies. Anyway...I thought this would be a fun and different way to use the kit so have fun!
And before I forget...right after you download my tutorial and pattern, head over to my blog Stampercamper's Corner and leave me a comment.
