Your Brightest Year Yet Workshop

I'm taking Your Brightest Year Yet Workshop by Amy Tangerine and feeling inspired to share what I have done so far.

I received the email about this class while I was on vacation in December 2019.  It has been a while since I took an online craft course so I thought, why not?  Frankly I was not even paying much attention to the contents or the format of the class when I signed up.

Amy Tangerine never disappoints us.  Her positive energy and good vibes, together with her style and bright colors, often bring a smile to my face and inspire me to play at my craft desk.  This course is no exception.  At first class Amy asked us to set an intention, and for me, it was to have fun.  Along with having fun, I have also discovered more about myself, a few of my favorite things, other crafters' enthusiasm in sharing their work and fun, etc.

There is still so much I want to add to the pages for Class 1 and Class 2, but I'll let it evolve organically, and if the end product does not present everything in order, I know I am having a lot of fun in making it!

Sharing some of the pages I've made so far:

I'm excited about next class!  If you'd like to know about the workshop, click here.

Happy 2020 and May it be your Brightest Year!

with hugs and love

This week I'm on call for jury duty.  I'm glad to serve the community.  While waiting, what's better than putting a new post on my blog?

I'm continuing with my mini-series of cards using the same Lawn Fawn set.  I can't say how much I love it enough!  Versatile, fun and pretty!

This time I'm using the sentiment that comes with the set.  My friend just needed a pick-me-up and I think it's perfect for her.  This card is so easy to make, and the sentiment in the center can be changed to anything.  Perhaps a "hello" or "thanks" die cut will make it super awesome too!

Happy Birthday

The Fab Flowers Stamp and die from Lawn Fawn is just an awesome set!  The flowers can be arranged in so many ways and of course with different color combinations the possibilities are endless.

When I first saw this set I didn't see I would fall in love with it but after I've bought it I couldn't stop playing with it!  This is the birthday card I made for my SIL:

I love that it is so easy and guess what?  Because you can always make something different with it, the novelty never wears away!

Mother's Day card

I hope you all had a fun National Scrapbooking Day last weekend. I went to a small crop with a friend and we sure had fun.

I didn't scrapbook but I got several cards done.  They all made use of the Lawn Fawn Fab Flowers stamp and die.  I didn't bring much with me to the crop and with that set, I made several cards.  So glad that I got my mom's and my grandma's Mother's Day cards completed. :)

This one goes to my mom:

I had so much fun making this one.  The one for my grandma is very similar.  Will share that soon.

Shaped birthday card

Happy Monday!

My blog has gone really quiet for the last two weeks.  I was travelling for work non-stop.  Although I like to be away from the office from time to time, I also miss the time that I can actually sit at my desk and focus on work.  Sometimes, spending hours a day on the road is draining, and if I hit traffic jams, I sing to the songs on the radio to keep myself entertained.

But things are getting back to normal and that means I'll have time to craft! :)

I'm sharing a birthday card today:

It is a shaped card and it makes all the difference!  So much fun!  The card front doesn't say happy birthday and honestly, I couldn't find a space to stamp that.  LOL.  The birthday cake itself will make it obvious. :)

My card is entering the following challenges:
In the pink - Birthday
Seize the birthday - Anything Goes
Little Red Wagon - Birthday boys
Stamps and fun - Animals
Stamping Sensations - Anything Goes

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!

I'm sharing the last Easter card today.  It's the simplest one and doesn't have any interactive element.  I still like it for its simpleness:

A flat card is very postage-friendly! :)

Easter card

Third Easter card of the week!  It's also an interactive card!

It is very simple to make, with the new Lawn Fawn goodies.  The Easter Egg spins on its own and also runs the circular track around the little chick.  I kept the rest of the card simple because I do not want too many distractions and if I add too many things, the egg may not run smoothly.

There are many things I want to do with this die.  It's so fun!
