Paper Made Bakery February Blog Hop

** This is my 3rd post for today. Please scroll down for Avocado Arts & Some Odd Girl post. **

 

Hi there  lovely peeps and welcome to my first post as part of Paper Made Bakery team. I am very excited of this new adventure and honestly a bit nervous. Why?? Because I have to use more patterned paper!! And, if you've been following me for a while you know that my style is clean & simple. The thought of layering papers is something that I have to get use to.

This is part of my new year resolution. To step out of my comfort zone and try something that I don't normally do.

Anyway, enough rambling and let's get on to this month kit, shall we? This month PMB has assembled this kit called "How's The Weather" which include these fabby goodies.




And, here's what I made.


4 different patterned papers!! Pat, pat on my back. LOL. When I first saw the 6x6 paper pad, I was like... this is so not my style. Vintage looking paper. Hmm.... Then an awesome friend of mine said when you have no idea what to do, paper pieced! (thank you, Kimberly!)

So, I paper pieced the umbrella and then the rest kind of just come together. And, to my surprise I actually finished 4 projects (which I will share at PMB blog through out February). I guess the benefit of the paper pad, you know that all the patterned paper will work together. For this CAS girl, it just a matter of accepting a bit busier card is okay. ;)

Now, I hope you will join us and hopping along. Please check out what my teammates has created and leave them some love. And, yep, you know it... for all your effort, we have "Hearts'n-goodies prize package" to giveaway to one lucky random winner. Each comment you leave equal one entry for the giveaway.

If you are interested to purchase this kit simply click on the BUY CURRENT KIT tab on the left side of the menu bar on PMB site. The Baker's Dozen kit subscription is also a popular option.  You can find out more about it HERE.
