Happy Hydrangea

Happy Hydrangea by Christine Pooler

 

Hello Everyone, this is Christine from Susan’s Garden Design Team and today is my turn to post on the Elizabeth Craft Design’s Blog.  My project uses Susan’s Hydrangea die along with several other dies.  My designer paper is a sheet that I have been saving for several years now. I can’t even remember where I bought it. Do you ever do that, buy some paper that you love and then not use it because you are afraid that you will not be able to get more?  I have decided I need to use some of those papers!

April 12, 2017

Hello out there my crafty friends. It is Christine here from Susan’s Garden Design Team.  Today I am posting a card I made featuring Susan’s Garden Notes Pansy die along with her Garden Notes Ivy Vine.  The color of the pansies comes from a photo I saw on Facebook last year that I fell in love with and the wooden box is because I love rustic, primitive things.

Hello Everyone, it is Christine here from the Susan’s Garden Club Design Team. I am so excited to be introducing 2 of Susan’s new releases, coming soon. I decided to use the Garden Notes Aster and the Canning Jar & Lid. She has both new Garden Notes and CountryScapes dies coming out and trust me, it was a hard decision to choose which ones I wanted to make first, but since summer is so short-lived here in Maine I decided to continue with flowers.

As crafters, I am sure many of you can relate to the fact most of us look at everything wondering what other purpose it could be used for, and that is what I did with the plastic packaging that most cutting plates come in and it is just what I used to cut my jar from. Continue Reading
