Blog Hopping With "THE GREETING FARM"

Hi everyone, Tash here and welcome to Two Scrappy Ladies.  Today I am joining The Greeting Farm's 3rd Annual Customer Blog Hop, Yipeeee!!!


To join the blog hop we had to create either a Holiday or Non-Holiday themed project.  For this blog hop I have chosen a Non-Holiday themed project by introducing you to a fabulous little Birthday gift project that I have been working on for my 13 year old niece, Larissa.  Since she just turned 13 and we know how much little Misses love to record all facets of their life at this age I decided to create a junk journal for her.  Larissa LOVES 'The Greeting Farm' stamps, in particular the 'Creeper Crew' so I have incorporated all sorts of Greeting Farm characters into this journal on to journalling tags.  I have left the tags very plain so that she can colour in the images (which she loves doing) and add her own artistic flair.  Anyway, I think it is perfect for a teen Miss, but I will let you decide.



I used a thick chipboard as the front and back covers which I covered with layered papers which I sewed together before gluing it to the chipboard.  The inside pages are a mixture of blank white pages, stripped white pages and designer papers as I wanted to leave room for her to illustrate and journal as well as leaving room for photo's.  I also tried to incorporate different mediums including acetate sheets and a felt page which was perfect for some stick pins.


Little booklets and post it notes add a fun yet practical elements to the book.


As you can see, there are lots of tags used throughout the pages which can be moved around as she likes and a acetate sheet with a 'creeper crew' character provide the perfect base for a dress me up sticker set.


I also included other stickers where I could which she can use to further express her emotions throughout.  I thought there were fun and would provide examples as to the sort of things she can add.



And of course, no book of her's would be complete without the token "Edward" images...heeheeheee, so I made sure to include a few of him also.

Well bloggers, that's it for my project I hope you enjoyed it.  If you get lost be sure to head back to the TGF blog by clicking here, however you can go directly to Thahn's page here.  Don't forget that there are prizes up for grabs which include two Grand Prizes for participant's creations and also a random hopper will ALSO win the ENTIRE upcoming January Release!! The only way to win is to participate in the hop so if you are only starting here go to the TGF blog and get hop, hop, hopping!!

In the meantime, thanks for stopping by and checking out my latest project.  May you all have a fabulous Christmas/Holiday season  full of family, joy and peace. 

Until next time, happy stamping/scrapping.
