Sweet Seasons Greetings

September 20, 2018

Hello everyone!  It’s EK here and I have a little non-traditional holiday card for you today.  I thought it might be fun to make something unconventional since on Tuesday the Design Team played around with Classic Christmas ideas.  For me, if you say “marshmallow” I think about summer and camping.  However, I love the idea of roasted marshmallows becoming a sweet treat on a cold Christmas night!  So here is a little kooky holiday card for all you marshmallow lovers.

Christmas Chocolate

August 23, 2018

 

Hi Friends!  It’s EK and I am sneaking in with a tasty treat today.  One of my favorite things about the holiday season is it seems the food and drink just get better.  It seems only fitting that Joset’s new release has so many sweet treats to help celebrate the season!  Today, I am using the new Hot Chocolate die to create a fun Christmas Card.

Holiday Mixed Media Canvas

August 17, 2018

Hey Friends!  It’s EK, and I’m sneaking in today to share a little mixed media canvas I created for the upcoming holiday season.  Last year during the holiday season, I started putting up small holiday theme canvases throughout the house.  It was a really fun way to decorate for Christmas instead of just putting up the tree.  With the new release of Joset’s new holiday dies, I wanted to create some new mini canvases, and thought the new Santa’s Sleigh was perfect for this project.

Happy Summer!

July 24, 2018

 

Hey Friends!  It’s EK here today sharing a little bit of paradise with you.  As my weather outside heats up to uncomfortable levels, I just keep imaging myself somewhere tropical.  To help push the fantasy a little further, I thought I would whip up a little card from paradise using the new Tropical Florals die set.

All You Need

June 28, 2018

 

Hi Friends!  It’s EK Gorman here just peeking in today to share with you a fun way to get the most out of the new Susan’s Garden Frame It/Stitched Rectangle dies.  I just adore the idea of cards where the front looks like it might be one thing, but once you open it, you see another picture entirely. Surprise!  The new Frame It dies make this technique so simple that I know you’ll want to join in the fun.

Think Happy, Be Happy

May 24, 2018

Hey Everyone!  EK here today sharing a card using some new products released earlier this week from Susan Tierney-Cockburn.  But before I go on, I have a small confession to make.  My favorite flower of all time is baby’s breath.  Now, I know what you are saying, that’s not really a flower, just a filler for other flowers.  But I love baby’s breath.  There is something about them that makes me think of living snow.  I have been known fill vases with this fluffy white flower and display it as if they were prized roses.  So I promise, after today I will use the new Baby’s Breath die set as a filler flower in all my paper flower bouquets, but today, just today, I am highlighting the flower for its beauty all on its own.

Grow, Bloom, Blossom

April 30, 2018

Hey Everyone!  It’s Ek here, and I am coming in sharing a bit of spring.  It seems that winter has finally (or hopefully) tucked herself in to hibernate and the glory of spring is finally upon my household.  My daughters and I spent much of last weekend planting the garden, and my youngest demanded that this year we have flowers for the bees to feast upon.  Needless to say, her enthusiasm won me over and we spent a full afternoon picking out flowers to plant and getting them into the ground and into pots.  It is one of those memories I don’t want to forget so I decided to capture the moment with this week’s project using both the Garden Party stamp set and Garden Scene die set.

Happy Easter Wall Decoration Frame

March 29, 2018

Hi Crafty People!  EK here today.  I thought with Easter just a few days away, I thought I would share a wall hanging decoration I made for the wall next to the Easter Day kids’ table.  We are having several different families come together this year since none of us can get together with our born-into families, and we are going to have a table of eight elementary school kids sitting together.  My children and I have been busy making decorations for the house and I realized that the wall was looking just a little bleak, so I came up with the idea of making this wall decoration.

The inspiration of for this project started with a frame that Els made a few weeks back during her Technique Friday with Els Assembling the Happy Frame XL, where Els decorated just two of the side panels with stamps while leaving the other two bare.

Grow Happiness, Plant Dreams

February 22, 2018

 

Hey Everyone!!!  EK here today sharing a card I created to help beat those winter blues.  I am so over grey skies and winter sludge, that I find myself creating projects these days infused with some much needed color.  Today’s card might be overly bright, but it is also an excellent way to beat the mid-winter slump.

A Little Rain

January 29, 2018

 

Hello everyone!  EK Gorman here hoping your day is filled with sunshine instead of rain.  Where I am, it is no longer as cold as it was earlier this month and all the snow is gone, but now our skies are filled with clouds and rain, so I felt it was only fitting to create a card that brings out the hope of sunshine despite the wet weather.  The new stamp set from Krista Schneider, April Showers, is the perfect stamp set for such a card.  I created a little rainy Copic-colored card that celebrates the sunshine within the showers.
