Sharing CHA Summer Inspiration

Leah Farquharson worked with new product for the CHA show.  Read how she created these two projects.

I loved working with all of the new products that Jenni sent, but I wanted to share my projects created with the new feathers - which are AMAZING to work with! Jenni has done it again!

For this layout, I wanted to scrapbook a photo of my grandmother. I never thought about it much when she was alive {because she just didn't make a big deal out of things}, but she was the one who taught me to embroider - and was a quilter. And some of my favorite childhood foods are things that she preserved {she had this amazing "pickled salad" that she canned that was a mix of yummy veggies in a sweet/sour pickling}.

 Anyway, as I get older, I realize more and more that a lot of the things that I do now, are linked to things that she did in my childhood, or, of course, taught my mom. Amazing. She will always hold a special spot in my heart, even though she passed when I was just 18.

And I thought the "fancy checks" perforated sheet was perfect for simple invitation.You can see the tags and "fancy checks" in this post here. The register spots were perfect to slot in info about an upcoming event!

Hope you're enjoying all of the amazing projects and products from summer CHA! Have a lovely Thursday!
