Farm Fresh


Hello, my friends!

Another cold & rainy day here on the central coast of California…I LOVE storms like this…we don’t get them very often!

Just one project to share with you today using some of my favorite things…a 3D Shadowbox card

3DP01 3D Portrait Shadowbox

…the brilliant design of  Vicki Chrisman (available through Crafty Secrets), and their new “Farm Fresh” Creative Scraps

Here’s what I came up with:


These Shadowbox cards are SO much fun to work with!  Just chose a theme…start laying it all out, and go! 


Here’s the far left panel…”Farm girl at heart”, it says…so sweet!  A grunged-up paper doily, a little tuft of blush-colored vintage netting, a trio of vintage mother-of-pearl buttons, and that’s about it!


I LOVE this center panel! (Sorry it’s so shadowy!)  A sassy farm girl is the focal point, with a “Farm Fresh” banner stamp from the new “Farm Chicks” stamp set to top it off…

…I then took a milk bottle “lid” from the Creative Scraps…


…put it in an old bottle cap and filled it with Glassy Glaze…

Corn stalk

…the “cornstalk”—a small bunch of raffia…gathered together with twine, with “The Simple Life” tag from the Creative Scraps tied around it.


And finally, the far right panel…another delightful image from the Creative Scraps…another grunged-up paper doily, a netting rosette from Prima, (which just happened to match my vintage netting!), and a “Fields & Farm” label from the set to finish it off.


Hope your day is wonderful!

See you soon with something new…
