A mini and a Freckled Fawn giveaway

I was really excited when I was contacted by Doe from Freckled Fawn and asked if I would like to create something using their adorable embellishments.  The fun items she sent me are part of the September OHDEERME Embellishment Kit Club Freckled Fawn has just established.

The OHDEERME Embellishment Kit Club is the perfect kit for crafters who want to use up their personal paper stash. Each month, Freckled Fawn designs and manufactures a collection of coordinating embellishments. You will receive a tin filled with enough embellishments to inspire you as you create dozens of lovely projects! With the OHDEERME embellishments in hand, browsing your personal paper stash each month will become an exciting endeavor as you preserve your memories, fashion a card for just the right occasion, or add flair to a gift for a special person.


     So guess what?!

Freckled Fawn has generously offered to give ONE of my readers a $20.00 ohdeermekit.com gift card!!!!!!!  

     WOOHOO!!!!  Let me tell ya that these are quality embellies and SUPER cute!  You won't have any problem using them on your projects...whatever they may be.
     Speaking of projects, now you get to see what came out of that picture I posted of my crafty kitchen table a couple of days ago.  LOL  I am so excited cause my sweet friend Bonnie Irvine has agreed to take me on as a student of mixed media techniques.  We're going to be swapping ATC's that use the techniques she teaches me and they'll be going into this mini as a kind of mixed media reference journal for me.  So here we go.....


     Meet Joanie.  Now you Mo's Digital Pencil fans may recognize her.  As you can tell she's an artiste.  She already has some painting supplies, but I gave her a few colored pencils too.  I've done a YouTube video in which I explain everything I've done page by page so if you'd like to know more about the construction you can watch it on my channel later this morning.  {Edit:  video is up now hereOtherwise, I am going to point out where I have used the fun Freckled Fawn embellies.
     Here on the cover I've used one of the cute brads.  This one says "Yay".  I've also used a wooden frame and that cool yellow metal flower.  Yep, it's metal.
     Here's a close up of Joanie for you coloring addicts.






The cool red gem on the sentiment banner is from Freckled Fawn.


So is this cool black and cream striped brad.



Here's another gem.


Can you tell I liked these.  hee hee



     I used a cute There She Goes Clear Stamps paint bucket on the back of the mini to finish out my art theme.
     Here's a pic of what I still have left to play with.  I wanted to spread it out a bit.  hee hee


     Aren't those love letter brads the cutest.  I saw several things in the FF store that I could have added to my mini.  You'll be seeing all these leftover goodies on upcoming projects.
     Make sure you leave a comment for your chance to win.

Thanks for the shout out. I am so excited about this I could squeal! And I have mini envy...and I don't mean just a little when I say mini. What an awesome place to store your reference cards for mixed media. Each page is a delight with so many fun layers and beautiful details. The new embellies are super cute and I'm loving how playful each page is...perfect to showcase mixed media which has no rules and is pure play. Love the signature stitching, too.
