Crop & Create 2016

Crop & Create 2016

This is one event my friend and I look forward to going to each year we can. 

What I enjoy the most is the classes and getting to meet those creative people that we witness in magazines. I never get much extra done and that is perfectly OK because I go for the entire experience.

Please see some of the creations done through those fabulous classes below.

This first class was done with Nicole Nowosad called (Playful Paper)
Making those origami hearts was difficult but very fun!

 Lay-out one (Double Page)

Lay-Out two (Single Page)

Second class was also by Nicole Nowosad called 
"Colour Matters"

Third Class with Vicki B and Bo Bunny
Double Page Lay-out

The fourth Class was also by Bo-Bunny but I haven't finished yet. 

If you haven't experienced Crop & Create I highly recommend giving it a go. It's completely different then any other crops you've attended.

Nurses' Week May 2016

May is a very special month for me. Many celebrations to be had such as Mothers Day, my anniversary, family birthdays and Nurses' week.

Last year I purchased this very special stamp from Unity Stamps and is one of Angie Bloms Designs. I had a blast doing a mass production as I have so many Nurses in my life that I'm grateful for and wanted to give them something special made from the heart.

Products used: Water colour paper; Derwent and Prima water colouring pencils, Hero Arts Hello die and stamps, Paper pack from echo park, embellishments, Circle die and Wink of Stella.

Happy Retirement

I fall in love with Heartfelt Creations more and more every day. It is so easy to make elegant and beautiful cards using their products.

This is a retirement card I made using a combination of spellbinder dies, the Sun Kissed Dies and Stamps, Greenery from the Farmers Market Collection, ; Tag and centre from the Everyday Heroes Collection
More spellbinders and the beautiful black Border is from the Regal Borders and Pockets Die.

Used Abandoned Coral Distress ink for the flowers, some beads for the centre and a combination of Shabby Shutters and forest green on stems.

Enjoy and be inspired!
