Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Hey everyone - it's Crop Chick Michelle here! Happy Tuesday! It's my first time blogging for Crop Suey and I'm super excited! I'm gonna be here chatting with you every Tuesday for the next six-months. I have been having a ton of fun with my Over The Rainbow kit and I can't wait to share my projects with you! This first one I just finished earlier tonight. The minute I saw this super cute owl paper I was in love. That one blue owl is just the best! I took one look at him and knew he was saying "I gotta be me!" LOL. Anyway, its a 6"x12" layout, and everything I used is from the kit except the blue duct tape, the ribbon on the bottom and the words "own tune" which are Cosmo Cricket Rubons.

The next project is a mini-album about the neighborhood walks my hubby Michael and I have taken this summer. Everything I used is in the kit except the plain colored cardstock and the binder itself:







I still have a ton of stuff left in my kit and lots of ideas! So how are you liking your Crop Suey kits so far? What have you made? Email them in or post a link- we'd love to see what you're doing!

Take care everyone - and I'll see you again next Tuesday!

I have projects swimming around in my brain that want to escape....and then I looked at your things michelle and I fell in love with your work. What a fabulous choice for the DT! Your heart shines right through all of your work and your words and your own blog!
Way to go girls!

What kind of page protectors are used in the mini album???

Amanda Ann said...

That album is totally rockin'!! I love it!!

Oh Michelle! Love your mini-album with all the words!!!

Thanks for all the kind comments everyone! They make me so happy! Jessica to answer your question - the mini-album (page protectors and all) was a vendor make-and-take at Scrapfest this year. The chipboard and page protectors are from Teresa Collins, and the binding was done with a bind-it-all. It was my first time trying one and now I simply MUST get one!

Thanks for asking!

kristina k said...
