The Crazy Crafters CASE ... Me!



Oh it's such fun to be asked to do a blog hop with the Crazy Crafters!!! A big thank you to Kylie Bertucci and team for having me as your special guest! I can't wait to see all your beautiful creations copied and selectively edited (CASE) from mine. Eep!!

The idea for these cards came from my fabulous friend Jennifer Frost. I loved the first one so much that I went back and did a couple more colour combos...

Stamps: Fabulous Flamingo
Inks: Dapper Denim, Lemon Lime Twist, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Powder Pink, Smoky Slate, Versamark

Perfect Days - Fancy Friday Blog Hop


It's no secret that for me memory keeping is where it's at! I do it for me, for my family and for the generations to come. And well, for the fun of it too. The new Memories and More range from Stampin' Up! means that you really don't have to be an artistic or creative person to preserve your memories. Allison Okamitsu posted this quote the other day and it resonated with me... thanks friend!


On the Fancy Friday hop this week, this team of past and current Artisans are bringing you a range of ideas for using our new Memories and More card packs. There's A LOT of 'more' you can do with them but I stuck to basics and completed some pockets pages that had been waiting for a little while (hence some now retired pocket orientations).

So - I'm pretty excited to share this one! In a little bit of an unexpected combination, I used some of the Naturally Eclectic designer paper to create a galaxy background for this card. Simply sponge on different shades of blues and purples (with a touch of black) from your ink stash and finish with some Whisper White Craft Ink.
