Creative Blog Hop

Creative Blog Hop
I am honoured to have been nominated by my very talented friend for the creative blog hop.  Her post can be found here, please feel free to stop by and leave her some love.  As part of the hop I was given four questions which my nominee will also answer. 

Here are mine:

1.What am I working on now ?
I have been working yet another mini album, but right now I am trying to get my son's baby album finished (yikes he is almost 5).  I am making some serious progress and bought some new paper so that has re inspired me to finish.         

2.  How does my work differ from others in my genre?
I don't really have a specific genre, I have a boy and girl so I flip between CAS and glitter all the time.  I tend to lean towards glitter  so when working on my son's album it has been known to get a bit sparkly.         

3.  Why do I create what I do?
It is so much fun and its a great stress relief for me.

4.  How does my creative process work?
It varies, I usually start with paper or stamps and figure something out from there.  I hardly ever turns out like I imagine but sometimes its a good thing.

Here is a sample of the newest layout in my son's album, didn't turn out how I envisioned it but I am happy with the result.

I punched out some of the stars and popped them up for a bit more dimension.

Supplies Used: Recollections Awesome Boy, Distress Ink, Spellbinders Small Circles

Thank you and New Beginings

Here is another thank you card I made for my former colleagues (still have one more), the new job is going great and while I miss my former colleagues the new ones are great as well.  This is based on this sketch.   I have really started to like sketches for a quick creative start, now to get the last one done.

And here is my take on it
Supplies used: DCWV Sweet Tangerine, Unity Stamps, Spellbinders Labels 17, Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Motifs, Memory Box Rolled Flowers

Thank you and farewell

Well summer is almost over and for me that means sending the kids to school but also the start of a new job.  I made this card as a thank you for my former co-workers who gave me some of the nicest farewell gifts.  I am really going to miss them and I have a few more cards to make since they were incredibly generous.  I used the following sketch as a starting point.

Supplies used: DCWV paper, Unity Stamps, Distress Ink

First Impressions

Here is another layout from my son's album.  These were taken in the hospital when everyone came to meet him.  He was so tiny and so cute, and seemed so fragile (he was just over 6lbs).   I combined some old and new in this layout, there are some older MME papers mixed with some new Simple Stories Oh Snap Baby cards.  I love combining some old and new stuff since I feel justified in getting both.

Supplies used:  Twine,  Simple Stories Oh Snap Baby Cards, MME Paper, Spellbinders Creative page tabs
