Harriet and my DD Title Page


If you follow Brandi Kincaid or me on Instagram, then you might have seen Harriet the Hippo pop in from time to time. She's making her first appearance on mini flair dressed in her holiday finest and has brought several of her friends with her. To top it off, Brandi has generously provided a 6x8 digital printable that you'll receive in your email when you purchase any set of flair that has Harriet in it. (that email will come from craftylilgik(at)gmail(dot)com as soon as I begin to process your order, so if you don't receive it within 24 hours, let me know) Along with that very special treat, there are now 3 different color variations of each doodle set. One last bit of fun news is that several packs of mini flair include 7 pieces for the price of 6 or 4 pieces for the price of 3.


Brandi has designed a mega Thanksgiving pack, winter and Christmas themes, and a darling New Year's Eve set. I've also updated the shop with a Santa themed set, snowflakes, a new month set, a black and white AND/& set, and if you're selecting a word for 2016 regardless of if you participate with Ali Edwards' One Little Word® or not, it will be perfect for documenting your goals.


I'm not rushing through November, but I did create the title page for my December Daily® album. I have nothing else figured out, and I actually don't even have my 6x8 album purchased. Guess I need to pick one out soon! I knew I wanted to make a tree shape using flair and other embellishments, but when I saw how perfectly the acrylic JOY piece fit, I left out any other little bits and pieces. To add a touch of sparkle, I tied a bow from gold sewing thread and used a tiny piece of a glue dot to hold it in place.

Head over to Brandi's blog to view the awesome project that she's made with the new releases in the shop now. Today is also the last day to pick up any of her previous designs before they are retired. Happy shopping and I'd love to see what you make, so please tag me on IG @lilgik, @feedyourcraft, or with #feedyourcraft. I'm always blown away by what I see you creative folks making and I'm honored to have a place on your projects. :)

Supplies:
6x8 paper - December Daily® Mini Kit by One Little Bird
mini flair - Deck the Halls and Let it Snow - Feed Your Craft
acrylic JOY - Twinkling Lights - Color Cast Designs

    1. I had to bite my tongue yesterday when we chatted about fonts. It's so hard me to keep secrets! I don't know why I waited so long to order from you, but that's all in the past especially now that I see how perfect our embellishments work together! xo
