Welcome to my stop in the Young Crafters Unite blog hop!
I'm Christy, and at the ripe old age of 34,
I don't know if I necessarily qualify as "young."
But having only stumbled upon the wonderful world
of papercrafting about a year and a half ago,
I definitely consider myself a "young crafter" in terms of experience.
And besides, I think what we all love about papercrafting
is that it takes us back to memories of our childhood,
when we felt free to let our imagination loose on paper,
and took great pride and pleasure in doing so.
So in that sense, we're all "young crafters," aren't we?
The theme of this hop is "our favorite things,"
and while I have room in my heart for many
different types of crafting supplies, ;o)
I've tried to showcase a few extra-special ones here.
As a writer, I love, love, love text prints.
As a mom of three boys, also I love any excuse
to break out the girly patterns and colors,
like these gorgeous papers from The Girl's Paperie.
And I also threw in a new favorite item:
Cosmo Cricket's Glubers.
I used their 2" gluber with fabric scraps torn into strips
to create the floral embellishment you see here,
adding some hand-trimmed fabric leaves to the underside.
And no "favorite things" card could be complete
without a stamp from my favorite company: Lawn Fawn.
I stamped "thinking of you" from Sophie's Sentiments
in my favorite Jenni Bowlin Spice Tin ink.
And now it's time to continue the hop,
over to the AMAZINGLY talented Jill Foster's blog.
This lady is such an inspiration!
You'll see what I mean when you get there.
