Back from a family wedding in New Zealand to join in this fortnights FUSION.

Simple Valentines card created using Winnie and Walter die cuts, Avery Elle stamped sentiment, and some gorgeous American Crafts patterned paper.

Happy (Aussie) Day @ FUSION...



A HUGE thank you to Christine @ Create a Smile for her generous support of the FUSION 3rd Anniversary celebration. So many fabulous creations in the FUSION gallery!

On to another celebration this fortnight @ FUSION. 
Loving the green and gold inspiration for Australian Day on January 26th! Looking forward to Australia Day as a great opportunity to chill out with friends and family and 'throw another shrimp on the barbie!'.
Created a simple card using a super cool Studio Calico Australia map diecut, together with diecut 'Happy' and 'day' (cut from 'birthday') sentiments from Winnie & Walter, to deliver a card that is fair dinkum Aussie mate!

Hope you can join in the fun this fortnight @ FUSION.

Happy 3rd Anniversary FUSION...


So happy to be joined by my guest designer, Christine Drogt, for this fortnights 3rd anniversary celebration at FUSION. Christine and I started our card design journey at around the same time, back in 2011. I have always loved her fabulous use of colour and her inspirational videos - especially considering English is not her native tongue! With this gorgeous sketch and winter inspiration photo, I immediately thought of Christine with her gorgeous pops of colour and fabulous range of products she has designed for her online store Create a Smile

Christine super kindly offered a fabulous 25 euro prize or her online store Create a Smile for one randomly selected FUSION entry, so there is even more motivation to join in the celebrations!

Remember you can choose to be inspired by just the sketch or inspiration photo, or combine both, as I have this fortnight. Featuring this gorgeous little Create a Smile woodland critter paper pieced in woodgrain patterned paper and stamped winter scarf on glitter foam sheet. The cute "warm fuzzies" sentiment is also from Create a Smile. Paired with this gorgeous "Wishing You" sentiment and heart balloon also stamped onto glitter foam sheet, both from Winnie and Walter.

So hope you can join in the fun this fortnight @ FUSION. 
Can not wait to see how you are inspired!

2016 in Review...

I don't know about you, but creatively speaking 2016 was a very quiet year for me! 

Hopefully my creativity will get a well deserved jump start in 2017, especially as I have already booked back-to-back weekends away in March, first is a mixed media extravaganza, then heading up country for cardmaking with some super creative friends. Which prompts me to question, what do you call a collective of cardies? A winter wardrobe?!?

Anyway, I was able to muster a dozen of my favourites for 2016...











And for a trip down memory lane, my favourites from previous years...
