~ Crafty Secrets Design Team Challenge ~ New Product Showoffs! and a tutorial

Fairycard1
Howdy Monday! It's DT-challenge day for Crafty Secrets and we're going to show the new goodies that have recently been released: lots of stamp sets, mini creative scraps and other stuff.

My project used the new Born to Fly stamp set ....... looky at it in all its cute glory!

I paper pieced one of the little girls. It was dreadfully fun, and I'm going to show you how...... 

*TUTORIAL DISCLAIMER* I know I did a not-so-great job on this. It was so befuddling to have to stop at every step and take a photo, so inevitably, I missed out on a few things. Hope you won't notice though :) 

First, let's make the fairy.

Now, we assemble the card.
CSfairy2 Next, we dress up the card with a few fun things..........
CSfairy3There it is..... a silly little tutorial I hope you had the patience to run through. I'm not quite sure if it was helpful to you, but if anything, you probably learned something of my creative process. It's called Disorganized Chaos. (truthfully, I rarely plan the whole card out or use sketches. I use whatever comes to my whim and fancy at the moment in time).

Just a few more photos and I'll be done.
