paint by number challenge

felt & cps layout challenge

There are so many things to celebrate with all of the great announcements and contests that have been going on for the Papertrey Ink 3rd anniversary celebration! 


Today it's all about the new exclusive 100% wool felt in the exclusive Papertrey Ink colors. Now, the felt on my card is not from Papertrey Ink - it's from my vintage wool felt stash - but I had to use something for this project in a pinky Valentine color. Just dream of the day when you will be able to have Sweet Blush (and Spring Moss, and Ripe Avocado... I can hardly wait for all of it!)felt right at your fingertips to use for your projects...

This is my second batch of Valentines to send with my girls to share with classmates and teachers this next Friday at school (you can see my first batch here.) Hana was so excited about all the sweet little kitty cards that I was lining up on the table as I finished assembling them. This project also ties in the CPS (card positioning systems) sketch challenge. I know you will want to check out their projects as you might see a few more peeks of what's to come for the release. And yes, I know I used a set that you have all seen already, but I will have more than enough to share with all of you soon enough. :)


Here's a peek at the inside of the cards. They are all set to go for Hana to sign her name and seal up in the sweet little 3" square envelopes (the finished card size is 2 3/4" square.)

Head on over to Nichole's blog to learn more and find out about the contest for today! Have fun!
