Guest Designing for TGF's new Daily Life Kit!!

Good Morning, everyone! And Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day if you are from the U.S.A.

I've got some great news!! I have been squealing on the inside (and at home) since I found out -- I made it as a Guest Designer for The Greeting Farm's new venture on a different, but very familiar type of crafting. That is, scrapbooking!!!! The new items could be used for Project Life, but also for so many other things!

If you have not heard of Project Life, it is basically a type of documenting where you insert photos or cards/embellishments into page protectors. It is meant to be easy and fast. The concept was created by Becky Higgins, and you can learn more about it from her video:



Now, I tried PL last year. There are so many kits available. But I love that TGF came out with their own digital kit! It shows that they understand that there are so many people like me out there. That is, I not only stamp and make cards. But I also scrapbook! And let me tell you, this kit(s) is so versatile! And I simply am so enthusiastic about being a part of TGF's new scrapbooking line because TGF was the first stamp company I used and fell in love with!! :)

Anyway, sorry about all the blabbing. Please read more info below. Here's the verbage on the TGF blog:


'I am super excited to debut the follow up to the Berry Sweet Cut and Print Kit with the Berry Sweet Daily Life Kit! This kit features more daily life type files, like journal cards, cut tags and labels that still features our beloved sweet and cute TGF style! The set consists of 12 - 3x4 cards, 4 - 6x4 cards, 2 cut tags, 11 labels and 16 ephemera's. This kit is not exclusive to scrappers alone. When this line was created, it was created for card makers, scrappers, daily documenters, basically an all around versatile kit! Pair it with the Berry Sweet Cut and file kit and there is not limit to how you can use it!


To give this "Berry Sweet" kit the proper welcome that it deserves, and to celebrate that we are branching out into something NEW, The Greeting Farm is PROUD to introduce an amazing new team of Guest Designers, please welcome:

Please stop by the blogs of these talented ladies to welcome them to the Farm and also be sure to stop by the TGF Blog today to view their other projects and a chance to WIN the "Berry Sweet Daily Document" kit!!!



Here are a couple of my projects:

Some Project Life pages using the Daily Life kit:

In fact, the first one is my title page for my 2014 album (I also used Anya Strolls and Picture Perfect) . You can do your documenting in so many different ways... by week, by month, by event, etc. The second page was from a week during last Summer. You can also make your pages as simple or as elaborate as you want!

A traditional scrapbook lay-out featuring the Berry Sweet Daily Life kit, with some Berry Sweet Cut and Print kit, and stamps from Miss Anya Night Out.

As you can see, you can do so many different things with these kits! (Note: I also used additional products such as the alpha stickers (American Craft's Amy Tangerine) and the gold quoted card (Skipping 5).

And, finally, I've got a card featuring mostly the Berry Sweet Cut and Print kit:

Don't they look like lovely paper dolls to you? I love that these digital files and kits can be sized as you wish! And that they can be printed on varying papers! Also, please note that the flowers on the bottom are stickers that I've added.

Thanks so much for visiting and reading my (loooooooong) post! :)

Please visit the TGF blog and other DT's posts for more info and inspo!!
