Here's to You | Nautical Theme

I had a super full on working week, assistant Rimmer decided that as he was hungry there was no sleep in required! But looking back, sleep is over rated, I'm so happy with my early morning creation and the early start my crafting room this morning to start the weekend.

Floating Frame fit for a Star

Welcome back Crafters, today I'm joining Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop with fellow demonstrators who are all working on building our businesses (striving for the Incentive Trip) and having fun while we do it. There are some awesomely talented ladies in this group, so sit back and get ready for some crafting inspiration with a variety of themes.

I like to create cards that are a little different - maybe it's a challenge to figure out "how", and love the feeling I get when I make something "new" for the first time, especially when it is a new technique or something a little complicated.

I made a special card using the floating frame technique for my hubby last week to celebrate him being a wonderful dad, it took a bit of time, but well worth the effort I think you would agree.



Craig is a cheery happy guy, so the bright colours were a must, I cut 3 different sizes of stars in various colours from the Stitched Stars Dies. I popped a frame around the sentiment to make it pop and added a little shimmery shine with Shimmer Paint - after all stars shine!



I'd love to be able to surprise him with achieving the incentive trip, so with if you live in Australia and don't already have a demonstrator I'd love love to be yours - every bit helps with getting a step closer to the dream of achieving the trip.

Now that you have seen my creation, make sure you visit all the other Demonstrators, I know you're going to be so inspired after viewing their amazing creations.

Healing Hugs with a Wild Rose

It's been a bit of a strange weekend weather wise, one minute it's sunny, then its cold windy and even rainy.... so when I heard the rain on the roof this morning I decided I would make today a Pajama Day and do some creating.

I headed over to my favourite challenge blogs for some inspiration, and have combined 2 challenges for my project today:
 #GDP


 #FMS

As soon as I saw the GDP colour challenge I knew I was making a card with flowers, then that was confirmed with the FMS sketch - large flowers with coordinating circles it was!



To keep with the pastel colour theme I've used Smoky Slate for my stamping, it worked a treat not over powering the design, and coordinated beautifully with the delicate script from the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper - currently on promotion in the Buy 3 get 1 FREE sale.



Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed viewing my project. Stay tuned for more inspiration and tips this month. If you live in Australia and don't already have a demonstrator I'd love love to be yours.
