Hi Everyone, Christine here. It is my turn to post. Since summer is winding down and the sunflowers are blooming here in Maine. I have decided to use Susan’s Garden Notes Sunflower 2 for my project. Sunflowers are such happy flowers – who doesn’t love them!
Hi everyone, it’s Sandy Diller here with you today and I’m sharing a trinket box that I made to hold some treasures in my craft room. This box is much more fun than a simple bag or envelope to hold small items that I have cleaned up from my work table while working on a project. I have been wanting to make some of Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s flowers and this was the perfect time. It was fun and simple to make – so let’s get started.
Hi It’s Kelly Booth here,
I often like to create my own backgrounds for projects and was reminded recently of a technique I did several years ago to marble ink on cardstock. I decided it would be a pretty background for my Valentine’s Day card using several Elizabeth Craft Designs dies along with the new Bachelor Button by Susan Tierney-Cockburn. I love that bachelor buttons can be found in nature in so many beautiful colors.
Hello everyone, Christine here with my first post for Elizabeth Craft Designs in 2018.
Weather here in Maine has been bitterly cold, actually record cold for December, and it is going to continue. Dreaming of warmer days, my post today uses Susan’s Garden Dahlia 2 and Black Eyed Susans which were in her last release along with Suzanne Cannon’s Flourished Frame and Els van de Burgt’s Thanks and Berry Branch.
Hi, it’s Sandy Diller here today to share a card that was inspired by one of my teammates at A Vintage Journey, Anne Redfern. She talked about some of her childhood memories – among them, ice skating. It made me think of building a snowman and how we had some wonderful warm mittens to wear when it was cold outside. I hope you will enjoy my memories of a cold winter day.
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.
Today I present to you a card that I just loved creating. The Black-Eyed Susan is such a special part of the Susan’s Garden collection, and like other flowers in the sunflower family it symbolizes radiant warmth and faith.
I thought that the sentiment, “Be the sunshine in someone’s rainy day,” was the perfect way to express my idea: Every person can be just like the sun shining on a sunflower, providing reassurance and emanating positive energy and strength, elevating a loved one’s mood.
