On the Road Again...

Well, who'd a thunk it - I'm back in the prairies - big sky country, promised winters, new adventures and living the good life with my man Ron.  And back with Close to my Heart for the third time.  I just can't stay away!!  I've almost put my studio together and can't wait to get back at papercrafting inbetween finding a job and tweeking the apartment.  In the meantime though I wanted you to see what some of the Canadian consultants are up to.  Just follow the links to see some wonderful creations.  Next month I hope to join in!! 

This month the project is the My Creations Bracket Frame. This product can be found on page 132 of the Current Idea Book, purchased exclusively through a Close to My Heart Independent Consultant for only $8.95.

Just playin..

Managed a couple of Valentine cards...not enough to sell at work but that's the way it goes sometimes!!  This is what I managed:

But i've been able to get some other creating done too!  Like this farewell card for a co-worker leaving the country:

I snagged some of the bakers twine from work and added it to the card so she'd always have a piece of the place while she travels.

And then this card for a swap I'm in - theme was 'heartstrings' and layers.

And lastly, inspiration came from Pinterest.  Saw a wonderful branch covered in origami cranes so I pulled out my Cricut and cut a few butterflies to throw at my wall

Adds a bit of colour to dull brown walls :D

till next time,

2012 - Ready or Not!!!

Christmas is packed away, studio is cleaned (not sure for how long) and I'm creating again. Soooo many things I want to try my hand at. I joined a friend's Yahoo group specializing in Altered Art and created an ATC (Artist Trading Card) tryptich for my first swap. I enjoyed the process and stepping outside my box for a change.  Each panel is 2.5 x3.5 - easy enough to do.

Think I might have to make a larger one for Ron's den but shhhh, don't tell him ;)

Also working on some Valentine cards to sell at work - I'll be sharing those in the next while.

For now, back to the work table to see what I can accomplish today!!

And yet more cards!!

For the most part all of these cards were inspired by other consultants in one way or another - either a direct copy or even as I reminder of "hey, I have that stamp set!!  Enjoy!!
