I am so thrilled to introduce you to Cristal Hobbs...A.K.A. "Pinky" in the blog world. She is beyond fabulous with how creative she is! Her projects are fun and eclectic...mixing retro with vintage country...while adding a modern twist. Yup...that's Pinky-style. She has fabulous crafting ideas, and not only works in paper, but also fabric...watch out...she has lots of fun projects in store for you...and she video blogs about them. How fun is that?!
This first card is so much fun...I would have never though of adding that lace strip like she did, and I love how it works with the piece. That's that little bit of vintage country I was telling you about. Did I mention that Pinky raises chickens? Cristal used paper from my Christmas Traditions line for Creative Imaginations. She also used Creative Imaginations Cardstock Foundations line which coordinates perfectly with many of CI's lines.
Whoa...I think this is a sweet treat to send over to a friend or neighbor. I know I would be thrilled and quickly hide the cookie jar to savor them. Yum! Cristal says she loves to cook, and bake for friends...too bad she lives several states away from me...she would make a fun neighbor. To create this project, Cristal used paper and stickers from my Sweet Tooth and Christmas in the Kitchen lines for Creative Imaginations.
Love that close up...scrumptious!
Here's another fun layout by Cristal...and get this...she just whipped it up Thanksgiving night...right after eating pie. Yup...a baker and crafter at heart for sure! Looks like a yummy Thanksgiving meal. Cristal used paper and stickers from my Sweet Tooth collection for Creative Imaginations to create this layout. The die-cut artisan brown cardstock is from my Christmas in the Kitchen line for Creative Imaginations.
Innovative way to add journaling to her layout...fun and casual.
Here's another pretty card that she created. Love the trio of trees and her choice of papers to create the look of snow. Cristal used paper and stickers from my Christmas Traditions line for Creative Imaginations. She also used Creative Imaginations Cardstock Foundations line.
I think this snowflake box turned out with a whimsical vintage feel. The lace is vintage country, and the glitter is retro whimsy. Fun, isn't it! Cristal used one of my Silhouette digital cutting dies to create this box. The die is called:
