~Whimsy Garden Fence

Monday is here, man of man did this weekend fly by!!  Kirsten and I had a wonderful weekend playing boardgames and card games and Lance and Landon went to a rodeo and worked on building Landon's 4H pen!  It was a super weekend, just flew by too fast!

From The Heart Stamps has a super new sketch with a tWiSt and I have used both the sketch and th tWiSt.  The sketch is fab by itself but the tWiSt is something I haven't used in forever, so I thought I would play along.  The tWiSt is to use eyelets!

The image I have used is called Whimsy Garden Fence and I have paired it with some Fine & Dandy paper from Echo Park, eyelets from Making Memories (they are in between the image and sentiment...kinda hard to see with the dotty paper but they are there) and some glittery blue thread from We Are Memory Keepers.

So you can use the sketch or the tWiSt or both!!  You must us an image from the store at FTHS, but that;s easy, there are so many fabulous ones and everyone who enters will receive $1 to  You can save it up or use it right away! 

Be sure to pop on over to the blog to check out the rest of the creation from the DT and I also wanted to mention that you still have 2 days left to enter our SOTM challenge as well!

~For The Birdbrains Blog Hop

Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps blog hop. Our theme this month is “For the Bird{brains}”. Our designers are showcasing lots of gorgeous projects and some fun new opportunities this month too!  Please be sure to read to the end of the post so you don't miss the fun stuff we have available for you during this hop!

If you have arrived from Kathy's blog, you are in the right place, if not why don’t you start on the From the Heart Stamps blog, so you don’t miss anything.

Here is my project, it's a JOY fold card using my very favorite birdbrain- Birdbrain Hula Chick.  I have used the basic Joy fold tutorial from Splitcoaststampers but  I wanted the finished size of my card to be 6" square so I changed the dimensions.  For my base it is 6'"x 9" and scored at 3" and then the part that I have the Hula Chick on is 4 1/2" x 9" and scored at 4 1/2" and then I just cut around the birdbrain, matted it and stuck it down.  The wooden sand dollar hold the corner when the card is together:-)

The finished front

the inside

how it looks when the corner is not tucked into the sand dollar.

Now, please head on over to Lyn's blog and see what she has created.

As you hop along, please leave a comment on each entry. One random commenter will be selected on each blog to win an image of choice from the FTHS store. Some Design Team members are also giving away the actual project they create for the hop, too. So, you may win an image and a card or project from some of the blogs! And additionally, one commenter on the From the Heart Stamps blog will be selected to win a $15 gift voucher to the store!  I will be sending this card to my lucky winner:-)

We are offering another really cool prize on the FTHS blog! Have you ever had a great idea for a Birdbrain image? Well, this is your chance! One lucky winner randomly selected from all the comments will be selected to work with Faith to design a Birdbrain image!

 And, we would like to invite all of you to be a part of our hop this month, with the DT! There is an inlinkz on the bottom of the post here at FTHS and on each individual blog. Use one of the designer’s tutorials and your favorite Birdbrain image to create a project to play along. We can’t wait to see what you create! If you are interested in guest designing for FTHS over the next few months, simply add GDT to your entry. We are looking for six people to guest design for two month rotations over the next 6 months. Hope you will print off your favorite Birdbrain and play along!

Thanks for hopping with us today. The hop will end on Sunday September 14th at 6am, EST. Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog on Wednesday September 17th.
