Hi Friends!! Today is an exciting day here at FPTFY! We are welcoming our newest contributor and I know you will all just adore her!

Please help me welcome the talented Miss Lori from


They’re all yours Lori!

Hi FPTFY fans! Like Keren mentioned I’m Lori Hairston from Chouxchoux Paper Art and I am beyond thrilled to be here! I can’t wait to share everything with you but first, I would like to tell you a little bit about myself – if you know most of this feel free to skip this part! I’ve always had projects going, but didn’t really start in the paper arts until my daughter, Lauren, went off to college. She is the only child and one of those terrific children that you never want to go, so I had MAJOR empty nest syndrome. I had to have something to fill up that empty space. I know when I found paper crafting my husband, Dennis, was glad I found a hobby. Little did he know how big a part of my life it would become. I’m always busy: filling special orders, keeping my local business locations with inventory, and creating, creating, creating!!

 In honor of this beginning with Keren, I’ve got three things to tell you.  Lots of photos follow!


What is it?  One of my new kits:  Cute Girls Card Kit.  What do you get?  



Everything you need to make three adorable cards featuring those cute girl pins.  Here’s an example of what you can make:

How do you win?  Leave a comment OVER AT MY PLACE!   You have until Sunday, April 6th at 7:00 p.m. (central time) to leave a comment.  Be sure your comment let’s me know you would like to win!  Winner (using random selection) will be announced on Monday, April 7th.  On that day, you will want to see  Keren’s free wonderful image and the projects I created with it.


Now for the second thing:



I made three projects with the Easter Kit contents.

The first one is a pretty treat envelope featuring a graphic mint and white envelope, an air dry clay frame and chocolate bunny.

You get everything for this project (except the candy and adhesive).

I’ve gone more vintage for the second project with a bit of modern thrown in with the badge featuring an Easter pin.  Here’s a close up of the badge:

You get everything to make this project, too!  Here’s the third project:

 bunny pins treat wrap doodle

It is whimsical with the bunny pins and hand drawn doodle frame.



It’s perfect for one egg.  And again you get everything you need.  You can find the Easter kit in my etsy store.   There is only a very limited number available.  And just in case you are a little worried about the doodling, here is item number three:


I have a quick video with a tip for an easy way to create the doodle frame.


You can watch it here or on youtube.



What do you think?  Fun and easy, right?

If you would like to see all the contents of the Easter kit (and/or to purchase), visit my etsy store.

 See you all on Monday!

Have a great weekend!
