Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Here Comes Christmas

For this month's mixed media project at Creative Artiste I made a Christmas wall plaque using some creative chipboard from our sponsor Scrapmatts and Papertole

Image may contain: text

I used a Santa's head that I coloured in Panpastels  and stamped with a snowflake design stamp by Stampin Up then added it to the base of my plaque.  I added the chipboard circles and the Believe sentiment from Scrapmatts products. The holy leaves were a Tim Holtz's die cut.  The Santa's hat was covered with glitter and the Christmas ball and bow were added to complete the project. 

Thank you for stopping by.  Remember to pop over to our challenge blog top be inspired by our creative design team.  Have a creative month.
