Winnie & Walter Leading Lady Take Four & Giveaway!






I'm back with Take Four.  I can't believe this is my final day as the Winnie & Walter March Guest Designer!  I wanted to give a BIG shout out for Julie & Shay for their kindness and generosity!  I have thoroughly enjoyed myself....Winnie & Walter products are FABulous♡

Today's theme:  this 'n that

Here on my blog, I'm sharing one of many projects...you'll want to pop over to the Winnie & Walter blog to see all the projects!

Let's get started...no surprises here, a coffee project.



I used a Behr paint chip (thanks michele for the inspiration)...I have several paint chips, more on that later.  I love to fussy cut To-Go cups...and I thought the green would be perfect.  It makes the, In a Word:  Love Cutaway, POP, don't you think?  It's been cut with white craft foam.  The overall design of the card looks Preppy 80's. 

Paint chips...I've got them.  I have them because I keep wanting to paint my design studio = craft room.   I consider myself fortunate that I have my room {which I've easily out grown} because in my previous home, I was in a hallway.  Do you remember that?  My poor boy knew how to step over projects that were  'lined up' on the floor in front of his bedroom door like a pro!  I had to sneak into his room to plug in my heat gun...LOL, those were the days.  It's crazy how much 'stuff' I have...so much of it is still in boxes from the move that I'm doing a massive purge in May.  I'm lucky that my community has bi-annual community garage sales...they put up signs and do advertising.  I advertise on Craigslist and put up a balloon at the end of the driveway and cross my fingers that I can move my stuff.  This year it is May 15 & 16th.  If you're a Washingtonian...you should come.  I have a couple other bloggers that are joining me so it'll be worth your time.




You'll want to head over to the Winnie & Walter blog because I have a ton of projects over there today...you know, this 'n that!  

Remember, I'm going to be giving away a $30 Winnie & Walter Gift card {I'm matching Julie & Shay's!}.  It'll work the same way, leave comments on the Winnie & Walter Saturday posts here my personal blog for the month of March and I'll do a random draw for one lucky winner!

You'll want to pop over to the Winnie & Walter blog to check out all my projects and to leave a comment to be eligible for a $30 Winnie & Walter Gift card (thanks Julie & Shay!) give-a-way!  I'm going to do a random draw on the comments that are left on the Saturday Leading Lady posts on the Winnie & Walter blog!

Thank YOU so much for all of your support this month...it's been so much fun AND much appreciated.

  16. TOday's card is adorable! Now, I think you should have a "for sale" section on your blog so those of us who don't live near you can have the chance to purchase craft supplies from you! You might be able to sell everything craft related even before the garage sale!

I have one, and as soon as I finish up making the last four scrapbooks, I'll have enough space to buy more! It's a little scrunchy in here right now, but soon new paint and space abounding!! You'll have to share pix of yours. Have a great weekend. Bev

  47. I LOVE the idea of using paint chips to die cut
    and as backgrounds on cards! I have a ton too, because
    I keep thinking I could use them for something!
    I love that last card on the W&W blogpost-so pretty
    and I love the layers and sentiment!

    ReplyDelete
  48. What a fantastic card Amy! I have used paint chips as die cuts before. I usually get a sheet with several of the same colors in varying degrees on it and then die cut flowers or butterflies to create an ombre effect with the die cuts. It's a pretty effect and one that costs nothing to make. Win/win!
