The theme for this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop is a fun one. We were to choose a favorite project from last year and use it to be inspired to make one for the new year! I recently put together a Top 10 cards of 2011 post on my blog, so I had a favorite in mind all ready to go.
This was the ATC card that I made last April for Spring Fest in Buffalo, NY. It's an annual get-together for stampers, and I always sign up for this swap! I though my design was simple until on (approximately) ATC #3 (out of 26), I didn't want to thread and glue any more buttons! I kept going, though, and was really happy that I pushed through :)!
I decided to take out Button Boutique, Baby Button Bits, and Bitty Background Blocks again to make a new card:
Instead of stamping a Bitty Block pinked square, I used 2 of the images from the set to paper piece the cupcake and leaves. Used different images from Button Boutique to make my button card, and added the cupcake and sentiment (instead of the peas) from Baby Button Bits.
It will be so much fun to see all of the projects, both old AND new! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
