Probably it is the fabulous combination of both. While I await the arrival of my Happy Days collection pack, I used a ton of Country Drive on several projects--enough that I may have to get another pack just to HAVE. Sick, but true.
For some reason, I am not usually a fan of making birthday cards. Maybe because they are so required I find them tedious, but this little number came together in a snap because I combined a Country Drive sentiment (popped up with Therm O Web Foam Squares), fun patterned paper and the cutest little beetle car ever. I loved adding the mini flower stickers to the headlights.
Next, I did a layout with a ton of embroidery stitching, which I felt was perfect for the "country" aspect of this collection:
Ok, so the cardstock and thread were from my stash, but everything else on this layout is from the 12x12 collection kit, including the patterned paper, stickers and journaling tag--love having everything all included.
And finally, my favorite layout in a LONG time...
Truth be told, no one really gives me a hard time about Little Man and his craftiness, although I do get the occasional eye roll from Scott about how he is my little scrapbook buddy lol.
Notice my typewriter is getting plenty of action?
Wanna know my new favorite way to adhere ribbon? Therm O Web Sticky Lines. They seriously ROCK and make ribbon adhering easy and lasting.
You can find them HERE.
Ok, that is enough for tonight. Be sure to stop by tomorrow. Best Creation Inc. is having a blog hop including stitched projects and my blog will be one stop on the way--there will be PRIZES!
