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:
- 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).
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
