Breast Cancer Awareness – Hope

October 11, 2018

Hello, it is Christine here today with a card that I created for Breast Cancer Awareness as October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  This card is dedicated to our very own wonderful designer Susan Tierney-Cockburn in memory of her daughter Kelly and to all those that have been affected by breast cancer.

My idea for this card started with a local news report on a gentleman from a couple of towns over from us who grows a field of pink pumpkins each year and, once harvested, sells the pumpkins and donates all proceeds to Relay for Life. I started with a pinkish pumpkin using Susan’s new Garden Notes French Pumpkin and then added in a couple more of her new releases – Garden Notes  Helenium and Feverfew 1.

Love

January 3, 2018

Good Morning.   This is Selma Stevenson today.  It is time to wish you a Happy New Year!  Our next holiday will be Valentine’s Day and nothing represents this special day better than roses and hearts (or is it chocolate for some of you?).  I have designed a card using Susan’s Garden Rose 1 die set and Elizabeth Craft Designs Scalloped Hearts die set. The beautiful sentiment is from one of the A Way With Words die sets.

Flowers For Mom

November 24, 2017

Hi Everyone! Angela Whelton here from Susan’s Garden Design Team. While I know this is the time of year when most people are working on getting Christmas cards completed, for me it’s the week that we commemorate my mom’s passing. It’s been a long time, 12 years already, but sometimes it doesn’t seem nearly that long ago. My mother loved wildflowers so for today’s card, I’ve chosen some of her favourites: Cosmos, Lilacs, and the new Black-Eyed Susan done in white so that it becomes a daisy, as suggested by Susan in one of her recent Facebook Live tutorials. (Susan streams on Facebook Live each week except over the holidays.) I’ve gathered the bouquet in the Victorian Teacup and Saucer.

Celebrate Every Victory

August 23, 2017

 

Hello friends, Piyanki here today welcoming you to a brand new post. Hydrangeas have been one of my favourites from the Susan’s Garden collection and I thoroughly enjoy using the hydrangea dies every single time I make a project with them. The flowers themselves are so vibrant and can be created with so many variations in the colors, just like in nature.

This time instead of using inks, paints, glitter, micro beads and such – what I usually do for backgrounds – I used some dies to create a simple, elegant white-on-white panel. I think the sentiment – “Celebrate every victory, no matter how small” – speaks volumes.
