Cooooeeee - Creativity Is Calling!!




Gosh, Im loving these Blog Hops!! I think I need to commit to more, 'cos it gets me thinking & creating, of course!!

And I get to share the items with you, how is that not a win-win!!

You've just come from Libby's blog & she will not have disappointed you with her work, I always love what she has created!!


So apart of this Blog Hop is to create items that use the new items from the 2019-2020 catalogue, going live in just 1 more sleep!! Wahoooo, hey!!


To show off some of the new products, I've used the Come Sailing Away DSP with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits.

I've allowed the various designs of the paper to speak for themselves!! I don't usually use so many options of the DSP at once, often i simply use one side, maybe 2, so this is a big deal for me!! :)


 The compass image uses a 1.5" circle punch & the 1 3/4" circle punch for the Night of Navy cardstock behind it. The dies for the arrow simply adds dimension to such a image, right?


Yesterday, amongst trying to prepare for the Blog Hop and life, it was our youngest's 15th birthday. Darcy has always loved basketball & is now a B grade referee for various games throughout the week, so of course, the card HAD to be basketball related!

And while this Sea of Textures stamp set isn't new, I think I had discovered a new use for it, so I'm showcasing it... I've stamped the net image in Night of Navy, free-handed the edging of the net & attached the top of the ring with Night of Navy also.


To give the card a bit of dimension, I folded a short piece of acetate on itself, glue dotted it & stuck this to the basketball - I remember doing this in art in Primary School, haha!!

The third project I have to share with you, is a card that I sent out to a few fellow demonstrators and/or my support crew over the past 10 years as a Demo. I am so very blessed to have had many women who have supported me in so many ways.

This card uses the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set, one that will be a popular item, I believe & I have cased it almost completely, from the catalogue itself!!

The annual catalogue is such a great resource for ideas and techniques!!


I made 20 of these & 20 of another design that I will share with you in my next post.

The inside needed something special also, so I added a simple image of the budding magnolia, here.


Thanks for stopping by to see my projects, I truly enjoyed making them for you!!
