Crochet Flowers Announcement!

Happy Sunday to ya! A storm blew in here last night and brought some more cooler weather with it last night. Yesterday, it was in the 70's and rainy - today the upper 40's. I am really wondering when we will get some spring-like weather Florida is so famous for. The snowbirds from up north must be feeling a little gypped!

As you all know, I love to use crocheted flowers as embellishments on my cards...I am very excited to announce that I have decided to sell some of my crocheted flowers on my Etsy Store!

Add a button, a brad or some bling to the center of them to make a quick 3-D embellishment, perfect for any scrapbooking, card or altered project! They measure approximately 1 inch square.

Click this link for some inspiration on how to use them.
I have packaged them in sets of 5 individual colors and have matched them to SU and PTI colors. (I found a list on SCS that had DMC floss matches). Some are made with crochet thread and the rest are made with DMC floss. I currently have 4 colors available in my Etsy store, but am planning on adding additional colors once I gauge the interest in them. If there is a particular color you would like, please 'Convo' me through my Etsy store. I am happy to do special orders at this time and am able to do different quantities. Special orders will be priced based on quantity.

Here is the Pink set:

This is how it matches to Pretty In Pink cardstock:


Set of 5 view:

Matches PaperTrey Ink's Aqua Mist Cardstock:Ecru - matches Very Vanilla, but will coordinate with just about anything, especially kraft & brown colored papers as well as any DP that has creamy tones, vs. white tones - very versatile color!White - of course, it goes with about anything! They can also be died with re-inkers to create just about any color as well as airbrushed with Copics.Lastly, I wanted to show you how I organize my floss colors. I used the trusty list I got off of SCS and some Cropper Hopper ribbon cards. I cannot seem to find who makes this shape ribbon card anymore, but the Cropper Hopper ones are fine too.

I wrote the DMC floss # at the top left and the coordinating color in the middle. When I finish the floss, I know what color to re-purchase without having to look it up! The cards keep them from getting tangled up etc. I store them in rainbow order in SnapWare containers like these. I love these things for storing scrapping supplies. I used to crop every Friday night at my LSS and they were perfect for page planning. I store everything from versa mark ink pads, SU markers, Copics (for when I travel), bling, alcohol inks, etc. each in their own labeled bin. Then all I needed to do was snap the items together that I needed for that night and they were neat & tidy! I also have 12 x 12 SnapWare containers that store my SU stamps. I used to use them for chipboard, MM paints, Glimmer Mist and other larger embellishments when I cropped mobily. Now, I pretty much do my cards at home, but things are still so easy to find in my office because of my organization.

Here is a close-up of how I mark each ribbon card:Have a wonderful Sunday! I will be back this week with some new PCS Digi Valentine images as well as some other deliciousness! Thanks for stoppin' in! Gotta go stir my pot of chicken & sausage gumbo I am making! ~Tori
