Precocious Paper Blog Hop

Hey there!

I am so excited to be a part of Tessa's 30th birthday blog hop sponsored by her Etsy shop Precocious Paper!!!!   Tessa is an amazing person and an awesome artist and I'm so honored to celebrate her birthday with her. 




Ah, to be 30 again.  LOL!

Twenty designers (I can't believe I'm included among these artists!) are helping Tessa celebrate her birthday with some awesome projects featuring a variety of Precocious Paper goodies. 

Truly my favorites!!!

You can join in on all the fun by starting at Tessa's blog here.  If you've been hopping along and just arrived here from Julie's blog, you're in the right place!

I was lucky enough to be a member of Tessa's inaugural Precocious Paper Design Team and I can honestly say Precocious Paper flowers and embellishements are TRULY my favorites to work with.  So, when Tessa asked if I'd like to help her celebrate her birthday I jumped at the chance for an opportunity to showcase Tessa's beautiful flowers.  Anytime and anywhere I can!!  For the hop, I have a couple of projects to share with you.

Supplies Cardstock: The Paper Company; Flower: Precocious Paper; Glitter Mist: Maya Road; Markers: Copic; Pen: Faber-Castell; Mask: The Crafter's Workshop; Other: Thread

This layout features a beautiful fabric and felt Lollipop Flower.  The PP Lollipop Flowers are so beautiful and HUGE!  This one is about two inches across!!!  I love the ones in this sampler.

Supplies Flowers: Precocious Paper; Tape: Advantus; Stamps: Rubbernecker, Stampin Up; Ink: Tsukineko; Acrylic Ink: Liquitex; Pens: Faber-Castell, Sakura; Gel Medium: Golden; Other: Chipboard, gesso, newspaper, rub-ons 

This piece features Felt Roses in my favorite (and Tessa's!) color combination, red, turquoise and white.  I'm in awe of these little goodies - they're so tightly rolled with row upon row of petals.  Check out the ones Tessa's has in her shop right now: these, these and these.
