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!

A Place to Start - ANYTHING GOES W/OPTIONAL THEME: A BLUE CHRISTMAS

Time for another great challenge over at A Place to Start. The theme as anything goes as always.  Our optional twist is Blue Christmas.


I chose to use our optional twist theme this month of Blue Christmas. This is the card I created for the project.

And this is the Gift Box I made to go with the card.




Closer Look at the card.





I used the following products on my card and gift box:

Several different green and blue spray inks from my stash. 
Gesso
Watercolour paper
Tim Holtz Poinsettia dies
Tim Holtz Thinlits - Holiday Greens
Christmas sentiment from Just Rite Stamps
Gems
Glamour Dust - Fine Glitter Paint by DecoArt
White Gel Pen

My box before I altered it
