The Greeting Farm - April Release Hop

It's APRIL in WONDERLAND at TGF!

Hi, everyone! Today is the day, and this is NO April Fool's trick! We are excited to bring you the APRIL release, beginning with our LIMITED EDITION "Wonderland Beans" as well as our Delicate Words die which will be available ongoing in the TGF Store.
We've had a few questions about this Limited Edition release. Rest assured we will re-stock as we need to during the month of April, but after that, they will be gone, so get them while the portal to Wonderland remains open! ;)

We also have some big news as far as releases go. As you may have read, TGF is thrilled to announce that starting NOW we are going back to MONTHLY releases...so there will be a lot of additional excitement here on the Farm! 

I made 2 projects for today. First up I made a mini Pizza Box. I found the tutorial for this over on Splitcoast Stampers. The box, when finished, is approx. 4" x 4" and is SOOO simple to make.


I have featured Queen Bean. She has been stamped out onto Make it Colour Blending card and coloured up with copic markers. 


The Queen of Hearts, she made some tarts? Well no, this one much preferred chocolates :D I filled the box with heart shaped chocolates which I'm sure will be devoured... once all of the Easter Eggs are gone :/ 

The Enjoy sentiment is from the new Delicate Words die. 


My next project is a card and it features Hatter Bean, I kept the same colour scheme going as I had used with the pizza box. The papers are a mix of My Mind's Eye and Kaisercraft. 


Again, I used Make it Colour blending card and copic markers. To embellish I added some tiny resin roses which I made using Melt-It and embossing powders from WOW! Embossing, pearls, a flossed button and a die cut ticket. I also used the Delicate Words die on my card. 


Well, we know the moment you've been waiting for is just around the corner now that RELEASE DAY is upon us! Be sure to hop with us today, because one AMAZINGLY lucky winner will receive the ENTIRE Wonderland Bean collection PLUS the new Delicate Words die! In addition, a SECOND winner will be drawn to win a 2nd Delicate Words die, so be sure to hop and you all have until 11:30pm CST tonight to do so! If you're just starting out on my blog, be sure to go back to the beginning and go from there:
