I am very honoured to have been invited by a Canadian friend of mine Michelle Stewart to be a guest designer on Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge I really liked what I saw in this sketch and was fortunate to be able to use a design I had taught previously in class, just changing it up a little.

Today I created a simple project using AHSC Sketch 220. This weeks sketch is

Today, I would like to share with you a card that I have created featuring the June Stamp of the Month, Hello Foxy. This stamp set is available only in June 2017 for $27, or for just $7.50 when you spend $75 or more.
This is such an adorable Stamp set with so many uses.
Today I created a peek-a-boo card with a difference.
As you all know I am enjoying retirement as it allows me so much more time to enjoy my hobbies. You all know I love paper crafting in particular Scrapbooking. I was fortunate to see my son Anthony marry the love of his life Hannah. I was honoured to have been able to create the invitations, place cards etc. That was so much fun. I have been even luckier to have been able to put together a Wedding Album for the lucky couple. Going like crazy in between teaching Card classes and Scrapbook classes I have achieved a marvelous keep sake album, even if I say so myself....
The photos certainly do not do this album justice. I thoroughly enjoyed creating this masterpiece of memories that they will hopefully be able to look back and remember what a beautiful wedding they created. My subject certainly made it very easy for me to create this keep sake.
Anyway I better go and finish getting set up for my fully booked National Scrapbooking Day playing with "Live Beautifully" tomorrow and my huge Sale which is running for 3 days.

Close To My Heart has excelled once again,releasing the most gorgeous papers and stamp set to celebrate National Scrapbooking Month this month.
"Live Beautifully", is just that. The papers are just beautiful featuring a lovely collection of papers including gold foiled papers.
Here are a couple of cards I created for so many occassions, or just because.
I have left this fairly simple as the gold foiled paper is so pretty and donot want to cover it.
With this any occassion card the shimmer brush doesn't show up in the photo.
The stamp set is adorable with roses and leaves, gorgeous sayings and words that are just perfect for decorating both cards and page layouts.
There is a range of limited time only products available and of course i know you will want them all, when you have travelled through this bloghop and had a look at all the gorgeous artwork.
There are so many gorgeous page layouts and card designs featuring the "Live Beautifully" products being shared online at the moment. I am so excited to be sharing these exclusive products for this month at my fully booked workshop.
