The Greeting Farm August New Release Hop

Hey, everyone!

Today's release is definitely a milestone for The Greeting Farm as it marks our FIFTH birthday!  Happy birthday to us!   

As you've seen from this month's previews, we are going all-out to celebrate with three BIRTHDAY-themed releases and they're all available NOW in the TGF STORE!   Whether you want to GO BIG with the new Frou Frou line, classic with Birthday Anya 3, or get 'clearly' creative with the new Birthday cake stackers, there's a little something for everyone this release as we prepare to PARTY!


On my projects today I used Birthday Cake Stackers and I made a Card & Gift Box Set. The Pillow Box is from a Sizzix die. For the tag I coloured the sparkles stamp and the SWEET sentiment with distress markers. Then I made a card wrap around and tied it up with bakers twine


For the card I used Victorian Velvet Distress and black Memento inks for the cake and added a little Star Dust Stickles to the cake topper. 


There will be a few birthday surprises on the Farm this month, so stay tuned, but in order to kick start today's party and this month's fab release, we're celebrating with our DT BLOG hop as usual!

There's a LOT to celebrate today, so because we are so excited, we have FIVE prizes for our FIVE years!

THREE random digis of choice will be given away for completing the hop today, as well as TWO grand prizes of the ENTIRE AUGUST RELEASE!    

Just be sure to head down this list, leaving a comment on each stop, and then back to the TGF BLOG letting us know you've finished the hop.  You have until 11:45pm CST to finish hopping and we'll announce the winners during FFF tomorrow!  WOO HOO!

Thank you so much for celebrating TGF's big day with us!  As always, it's because of you that TGF is turning 5 with style and success.   Here's to the next 5!  Thank you, all!
