I adore Adornit

The opportunity for all of us at Mountain Plains Crafters  to work with everyone at Adornit on this Joint Blog Hop has been such fun !! Their line of products ranges from scrapbook papers to gorgeous fabrics; wooden shapes to a clothing boutique.  We were challenged to make 3 projects using their wide array of products . One of the projects had to incorporate their wooden pieces.My post today focuses on the amazing Adornit supplies that I used-- details about the other products I used will be in more posts later this week.. You should have gotten here from the blog of my supremely talented "glitter" sister Terri.. And if you have somehow gotten lost, you can head to the Adornit Blog for the entire line-up.

Adornit has a fantastic variety of gorgeous fabric available and I used 2 of them to mat my first card, Burnish Creme  was used for the outer mat and Burlap Beige for the inner mat. Burlap Beige has a subtle design of cursive writing & postal marks. I absolutely loved it..

This next card was SO much fun to make !! I used Adornit's line of Art Play Paintables by Lindsay Ostrom. The image I used is from the "Be Awesome" set. It is on a 12 x 12 sheet of amazing watercolor paper along with 11 other designs. A bit of Adornit's Pink Pixie Dots double-sided paper was perfect to complete the banner..

My last project is the one I am proudest of.. I used Adornit's  Choose Happy Word Plaque. I'll admit to being a bit overwhelmed when starting on this one, my first wooden project ever !!  But when I looked at it as just a card on a larger scale, I was immediately relaxed. Another amazing Lindsay Ostrom design from the "Life's Journey" Art Play Paintable was my focal point. Pink Pixie Dots paper was adhered to the plaque as a background. Don't you just love those BIG polka dots ??

I am also thrilled to let you all know that this wooden plaque will be heading to CHA with Adornit next week and will be on display.I am over the moon, thrilled beyond belief and overwhelmed at the thought of it. It was created when I stepped once again out of my comfort zone. Not too shabby a start to another New Year. I am looking forward to a creatively wonderful 2015 ! Thank you for letting me share my creativity with you..
