Valentine’s Day 2019

Hello! Long time no blog! I haven’t been in a crafty mood since November and I wasn’t even going to make Valentine’s Day cards this year, but I happened to get inspired one free afternoon… This year was big on puns 😀 The cards were a hit and I like the way they turned out….

Halloween greeting card – Eat, Drink & Be Scary owl

One of my favourite motifs is the owl, and owls certainly bring the boo during the Halloween season. They are mysterious and silent. Unassuming, precise killers. And they always have their eyes on you. This card moves away slightly from traditional Halloween colours, sporting a cooler pallette than bright oranges and purples. I used one…

CYCI#113 – Thanks A Bunch

This week’s Can You Case It challenge is a colour challenge: Navy, kraft and grey is a great combo. I was worried I didn’t have anything navy! I used Avery Elle’s All Squared Up stamp set that I recently got and I love them! It took me a while to figure out how I wanted…

fitness journal #1

Hi there! I was inspired last month to make myself a fitness journal. It was an exercise in both  creativity and in… well, exercise. My thinking was that if I had a nifty journal to keep track of my food and workouts that I would be more inclined to do so. Does this type of…

You Make Me Happy greeting card

I dig this card. As much as I like this aesthetic, I had never really made anything with that romantic Victorian feel. I am glad I did! And who doesn’t love a cute sparkly bow?   For sale here

painted composition notebooks

I am no great painter, so to use the neat metallic acrylic paint I had I decided to paint up some composition notebooks. I dig the results. Here is a quick run-down of what I did:   Here are some others that I have done: If you like what you see,  they are available here!

Can’t get enough notebooks!

Potential. Wonder. Excitement. Promise. Creativity. Fun. What do you see when you look at a notebook? As a creative person, you probably see all of those things and more. I see a place to be myself. I see a place to be someone completely different. I see a sense of comfort. As any type of…

Artists Retreats and Building Connections

Recently I have been looking at broadening my art technique repertoire to improve my greeting cards.  I read books and magazines, try to keep up with blog posts and Twitter feeds and use something new each project. It does the trick I suppose, but I also feel like there is an element missing to my…
