TSG Garden Of Friends Blog Hop

Wednesday, December 23, 2009

Hello and welcome to the There She Goes 'Garden of Friends' Blog Hop!


We're showing you sneak peeks all week long of the new sets being released for January and you won't want to miss a single day! If you've stopped by my blog from the uber talented Maki Jones's blog, then you're on the right track, but if you've stopped here by chance and would like to play along on this hop, just head over to TSG blog and start your journey there.Today's hop is all about the new Garden of Friends set! It's such a beautiful set!

I really wanted to create an elegant card and a fun, summery card so you could see the versatility of this set. This first card is very elegant and vintage looking. With the help of some K&Company paper and the Labels Four nestibilities, it was easy to frame out this beautiful sentiment. I know I sound like a broken record, but Jess has done it again with the beautiful fonts in this set! I really love using the sentiments as the focal point on cards - especially when the fonts are as good as these! :)


The main image in this set is this beautiful watering can with a bunch of fresh cut flowers in it. Jess actually turned a photograph of her friend's flower display into this stamp! Crazy good isn't it?! It's just as beautiful to color too. I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch (MTSC53) for this layout.

So do ya wanna win this awesome new set?! Head back to the TSG blog and add your name to the Mr. Linky at the bottom of the Garden of Friends post. A winner will be chosen randomly using a random number generator to receive their very own set! The winner will be announced Saturday (Dec. 26th) during the Release Party Chat.

I liked seeing one of the many beautiful sayings the center of attention.

The layout for the second card is becoming a favorite with the chance to use some DP. The design puts the focus on the image. Lovely.

Today, when you mentioned wanting something shiny in you stocking I thought you meant glitter or bling for card making.
