Creative Blog Hop

Today I am sharing some ideas as part of the Creative Blog Hop that Sondra Hammond, another SU! demonstrator invited me to participate in.  If you have not had a chance to check out her post from last Monday, below is the link to her blog and the links to two others that are part of the blog hop:
Below are a few projects I have been working on to prepare for the "Strawberry Festival" Craft Show that I will be participating on May 2 (details are included on my calendar).  I am always looking for cute little gift items for shows and my niece is expecting in April so I thought this would be a great time to use the Something for Baby Bundle.  I used Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight and Crisp Cantaloupe to keep it gender neutral.
My next project uses the Sheltering Tree stamp set and our Canvas Creations paper.  I saw this project at my upline meeting last month and knew I had to try it.  I love that it shows all four seasons, though I must admit that I am ready for spring.

My final project is the "Hello Life Project Kit" from the Occasions catalog.  I loved this kit and it was a fun, easy project that was perfect for the recent snow day.
The other part of the blog hop was to answer a series of questions, so here I go:
  1. What are you working on?  I am currently working on my March Just Cards class, a special Easter card class and Stamp Club projects.  I am also assisting with preparations for my church annual Christmas Bazaar (it is never too early to get started).
  2. How does your work differ from others in your genre?  This is difficult to answer.  I am often moved to create something by a project or card that someone else has created.  I have always been someone who takes lots of pictures so many of my color choices come from items I have photographed or seen in decorating magazines.
  3. Why do you create what you do?  The first time I attended a Stampin' Up! party, I was hooked. While I like working on gift items, I love making cards.  As a child I loved to get cards in the mail and have always saved all my cards. I get my greatest joy when someone receives a card I have made and lets me know how much they loved the design.     
  4. How does your creative process work?  I love to see what others are doing and CASE (copy and share).  I regularly look at Pinterest, Stampin' Connection, Splitcoast Stampers, our Stampin' Up! catalog and anything else I can find.  Once I decide on a idea, I personalize it with my our color combinations or a different stamp set.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!  Please stop by again.
