Chase Your Dream

Welcome to Tuesday my crafty friends. I chose to challenge myself today. I haven’t used Cucumber Crush in a long while and have an abundance of Cucumber Crush supplies.  

Color Combination:


Cucumber Crush 4 ¼” x 11” scored at 5 ½”
White 1 ¼” Jute Ribbon 9”
Whisper White 5” x 3 ¾”
Cherry on Top DSP 4 7/8” x 3 5/8”
Crumb Cake cut from Lots of Labels and paper pierced
Whisper White cut from Lots of Labels stamped in Early Espresso 

What do you think of my homemade Cucumber Crush button? I took a piece of Whisper White scrap and layered two strips of the Cucumber Crush Washi tape (from the Cherry on Top Designer Series Washi Tape) then punched 3/4" Circle. Adhering the "Washi circle" to a Whisper White large designer button. Took my paper piercing tool and poked the holes for the twine to be threaded through to tie a bow. The following photo gives you a sneak peak of what it looks like. Don't you love the sentiment? Are you chasing your dream? If not, you need to find your "tennis ball" and go after it! 

I used the sketch from Global Design Project (#GDP022).

I played along with the theme from The Paper Players (#PP281). 

Thank you for visiting me today. I’ve got some excited news to share tomorrow. Be sure to come back to read more about it.
