Okay ladies, not going to lie. When I first heard the name of today’s steal, the Prairie Hill Collection by Pink Paislee, I was immediately whisked back to the 70s when I would rush home from school to watch Little House on the Prairie. Luckily for us, Pink Paislee captures the color tones of the 70s in this collection with a beautiful modern twist. And since there are no bell bottoms or bangs feathered a mile wide, this collection is definitely a win!

I had such a blast working with the Prairie Hill collection that I found it a little hard to narrow down which direction I wanted to run with the card design. I wanted to incorporate the tags like I did last time we featured Pink Paislee, but I didn’t want to duplicate the look too closely so I got busy chopping up the gorgeous tags. Eeek!

On the first card I made I took the tag, chopped it and added matching corner edges to the bottom side of the tag and then finished things off with one of the cute 3D embellishments.

On the next card I took the same idea but placed the tags a little differently.

For the next two cards I flipped the sketch and tweaked it a little so that my chopped up tags would look the best!

On the final card I made I used the leftover scraps from two different tags that I cut up, added some buttons and washi and came up with a completely new design.

Creating with Prairie Hill? Way less painful than watching re-runs of Little House on the Prairie. In fact, not even painful at all!
