Happy Hump Day

Hello and Happy Hump Day friends! Today I am coming to you with a post for "Secret Garden Crafts", the new online paper flower store I've told you about last week. For my first post I've made a tag using all sorts of beautiful flowers. Have a look

For my tag I have used the following flowers from the Secret Garden Crafts store.

Tea Roses in light pink (from the mixed pink package)

Bourbon Roses in ivory

Sweetheart Roses in lilac

Gypsophila in baby pink /ivory

Wild Roses in white with dusky pink center


The filler picks that I have added are from my stash.

The lilac Sweetheart Roses and the Wild Roses in white with dusky pink center were toned down with white Gesso to match the paper better. This is just another way of using flowers that might not be the right shade to match your projects but can be adjusted with this simple trick.

I hope you like the tag that I have created. To see what the rest of the Design Team has come up with, please head on over to the Secret Garden Crafts Blog .

Before I say goodbye for today, I would like to let you all know that there is a coupon code that you can use during the month of August and get 10% off of your order. To make sure the code is working, please log into the website before you check out. Plus, if your order is $50 or more you will get FREE shipping. My coupon code is   SJ10A

Thanks so very much for stopping by today. I hope that my tag inspired you to use flowers on your projects.

Have a happy crafty day!

Happy Thursday!

Hello and happy Thursday! It has been a little while since I've posted, had to take a little break and spend some time with my girls. I can't believe I have a Junior and 7th grader on my hands now. Anyhow, today I have some very exciting news to share with you. Some of you may know that I was part of a challenge Blog a couple of years ago, with Archana Joshi. Well, my sweet friend asked me to be part of her brand new online store Secret Garden Crafts. Archana, has had a store for several years called Craftycity and has a variety of dies, papers, flowers and such. Archana also has a couple of Facebook stores and one of them is "The Secret Garden" where she sold mostly Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, then she added Saa flowers, which are also paper flowers. To make a long story short, Archana decided to combine her Craftycity store with the Secret Garden and now you can easily purchase her gorgeous flowers all in one spot, all you have to do is click on the logo at the Craftycity store and you will be directed to the "Secret Garden Crafts" part and take advantage of these gorgeous flowers. I will be the Design Team Coordinator for her amazing brand new Design Team and look forward working with these very talented ladies.

Here is what I received in my first package from Archana and I am looking forward to be creating lots of projects with these gorgeous flowers.

Isn't this an amazing array of gorgeous flowers? I honestly could not wait to create a project with them but to see that project you will have to come back next week for our weekly inspiration posts.  (wink)

Let me introduce the amazingly talented other ladies that have been chosen to be on the team

Owner of Secret Garden Crafts

As mentioned above there will be weekly inspiration post on the Secret Garden Crafts Blog to inspire you with gorgeous creations using Secret Garden Crafts flowers. We all hope to see you there.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Have a happy crafty day!
