FUSION Surf's Up!


First thing I thought of when I saw this fortnight's FUSION inspiration was this fabulous VW Kombi stamp - just perfect for this fortnight's FUSION photo! Inspired by a combination of this gorgeous sketch and super photo I created this fun birthday card by pairing Avery Elle stamps and Pinked Edges die cuts.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow...

Had so much fun creating this card, using Heidi Swapp butterfly mask on Tim Holtz tissue paper, overlaid with Distress Oxides in a rainbow of colour. Freehand outlined around the butterflies after the mask was removed and added this gorgeous rub on from my stash.

Joined in a little late for FUSION, but this is where I had my inspiration.

My Favorite Things - Colour Challenge...


Playing along with My Favorite Things Color Challenge
Realised I had this ready to go from my crafty weekend, playing with Joy's MFT goodies, but not yet posted, luckily there's still time to play along!

Anyways, this shaker was created using super cute MFT Somebunny I Love stamps and Essential Sentiments, together with the shaker window and fishtail flag, created with MFT die cuts. Inks are from the new Tim Holtz Distress Oxides, and Distress Ink, splattered and a little bit of starlight sequins added to the shaker.

Paris FUSION with Oxide Inks and MFT



Can't believe it has been a whole month since I posted! It's not that I haven't been busy crafting, just not busy posting my crafting efforts!

Had a great excuse to pop back in today though, back to join in the fun @ this fortnights FUSION. It's almost a year since we headed off to Paris in the Spring, so this fabulous FUSION inspiration was making me feel particularly nostalgic! Thought I'd do a Paris sunset rather than rain, so broke out my Tim Holtz Oxide Inks and this gorgeous MFT Paris Skyline and frame die cuts to play along this fortnight.

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!
