Happy 18th

February 12, 2018

Hello Everyone!

Today’s card was designed for our dear granddaughter’s 18th Birthday.  It is so hard to believe that our first grandchild has turned 18! Where have those years gone?  I wanted to showcase a few of her baby pictures and what better way than to use Susan’s Garden Notes Square Window as a frame.  Also from Susan’s Garden Notes, I have used the newly released Cornflower Bachelor Button.

Holiday Greetings Everyone!

Christine here today from Susan’s Garden Design Team with a Christmas card I designed using a set from Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s latest release – Glass Hurricane & Candle – along with sets from the existing collection – Garden Notes Evergreen Wreath, Garden Notes White Pine Boughs & Pinecone, and Garden Notes Holiday Holly & Berries.  The card is a 6″ X 6″ tent-fold card but certainly could be done as a side-fold.

Snowman Ornament Card

November 1, 2017

Hello my crafty friends!

Today’s post for Susan’s Garden Design Team is a simple little Christmas card.  Although Susan has some new releases which are wonderful I have used an older release for the simple reason I was going on vacation and there had not been a release date.  In order to have a post ready in time I went ahead and started this card before I left for vacation finishing on my return but have already started working on a card using some of Susan’s new releases which I will post soon.

Wildflowers

August 16, 2017

 

Hello to all you wonderful craft-loving friends.  Today is my turn to post on Elizabeth Craft Designs blog with a design for Susan’s Garden Design Team.

The card I created features the wildflowers that grow right here in Maine.  The flowers are arranged in Susan’s Garden Notes Pottery Pitcher, a die that is made to look like an old enamel pitcher.  I love having the actual flowers to look at as I create them in paper.  Most of the wildflowers are found growing either in my field or along the roadside as I drive into town.  The one I could not find was the blue chicory.  I had my husband driving around to find some, but we were a few days too early and by the time I was ready to create the chicory they were in bloom.

Hello everyone Christine here from Susan’s Garden Design Team I am so excited to be using  a couple of Susan’s brand new releases coming soon at Elizabeth Craft Designs.  This card has Susan’s Garden Notes Begonia and Garden Notes Window w/window box.  My card is a 5-1/2″ square tent fold card but it can certainly be made in another size and could be a side fold card.
