Cocoa Daisy March Reveal: Hello Again! (Calvinball!)

good morning, friends!  the cocoa daisy march gallery, "hello again," is live!  i hope you'll find time to visit this morning and see all the great inspiration with these spring fresh kits.

photos - taken with my dslr on our rv camping trip to north carolina with my sister's family.

story - every morning i woke up to the stunning view in the mountains and the sweet view of my smiling baby niece.

product - cocoa daisy march main kit only!

design - i split the photos into two design areas, but maintained continuity by have the title appear partially on both and also having the stitching visually connect them.

technique - it's all in the details with this one.  i darkened the wood veneer title just a bit with brown ink, backed the woodgrain camera flash with patterned paper and pop dotted the whole thing except for the "hello there" lens, and added some cross stitches to the tiny piece of bar code strip paper that i salvaged.

and now, if you're a crafter you simply must head over to get it scrapped! and join the great race, aka calvinball.  the "rules" have been posted and the message board is hopping with inspiration and chatter.  join us!  the time to get your craft on is NOW!


  1. Very pretty! I love the pairing of photos and the title. :)

  2. Love the way you scrapped totally different photos on a stitched matting. The pops of sunny yellow are fabulous too.
