Let Your Heart Guide You

February 3, 2018

Hello Crafty Friends!

Can you believe it is February already?  Time is flying in 2018!  Although time is flying by, I have made sure to take the time to unwind and happily craft away.  It feels great to create as I forget about the snow on the ground and the shorter days.  Coming home when it is dark is not a problem when I think of the bright light on my craft table!

This week I created a card using a stamp from Suzanne Cannon’s Love & Hearts Collection.  What a sweet quote!  Would you like to make a similar card?  Well, grab a cup of warm tea or coffee and enjoy the instructions.

“Only from the heart can you touch the sky”

January 6, 2018

Hello Sweet Crafty Friends.

January is chilly here in Nova Scotia.  After work I quickly walk my puppy, then put some comfy clothes on and spend time in the craft room.  It is a wonderful time of year to be in the craft room and get the creative juices flowing.  Yes, crafting is a happy thing to do on these chilly winter days.

This week I created a card using one of the stamp sets designed by Suzanne Cannon, the Love & Hearts Collection.

The card has shimmer, texture, playfulness and Suzanne’s beautiful calligraphy.

“Sweet Smiles” gift photo with frame

December 9, 2017

Hello Crafty Friends!

We are a week into December and many of us are happily creating or gathering gifts for loved ones on our Christmas list.  This week I completed a sweet gift for my brother-in-law.  He was married in September and the day was wonderful.  He and his new bride were big smiles the entire day.  His two daughters were in the wedding party and they were just as cute-as-a-button.  After the ceremony, I snapped a photo of his two daughters with my other niece and the photo is absolutely adorable!  One of my gifts to him is a frame of the photo.  The frame can be displayed all year (I hope!) and should bring back beautiful memories of the day.

Festively Beautiful “Peace” Ornament Card

October 28, 2017

 

Hello Crafty Friends!

The shorter days and cooler nights have me thinking of Christmas.  Every year I plan to make cards throughout the year to avoid the last-minute Christmas Cardmaking Race.  Every year in December I craft sprint to complete the race in time.  (I believe Usain Bolt would be impressed with my last-minute cardmaking sprint.)  This month I have created a few cards- all of which have used the newly released die set designed by Suzanne Cannon – Love Joy Peace Christmas Ornament.  Today I would like to share a traditional colored Christmas card that was simple to make and is easy to reproduce.
