This month we are featuring techniques. I decided to work with the Seasonal Decorative Masks, and show you techniques that could be used with them. I made the backgrounds for these cards using four different techniques I'll be sharing today.

This month our theme is Anything Holiday! We'll be showcasing projects for many of the upcoming holidays including Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's. I chose to use the Christmas Pines Bundle of stamps and dies. This bundle is beautiful, and there are so many ways you can use the stamps and dies. I really love making Christmas tags, so I started with a set of three tags. But, I thought it would be more useful to show you the tags on completed gift packaging. These would be great to give some candy, a gift card or another small gift to a friend or family member.

Fancy Friday - Something Different

Hello and welcome back! We're a group of current and former Artisans, and you're sure to find some inspiration here every month. Sometimes we feature colors, a sketch or like this week a theme of "anything but a card". You might have just arrived from Erica Cerwin.

I've had this project on my to-do list for a couple of years now. My parents celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary in 2012, and I wanted to make an album that featured a photo of them from each year of their married life. I know...quite an ambitious project! Since I missed the original deadline of the anniversary itself, I had some more time to decide how to complete the project. My original intention was to make a digital album, but recently I decided that using the current (and soon to be retired!) Love Story Project Life by Stampin' Up! card collection and accessory pack was the perfect way to complete this project. Another issue that makes the project challenging is that all of the pictures from the earlier years are located at my parents house 500 miles away from me! So, having pockets that I can slip photos in as I collect them will also make the project more doable. I can complete all of the pages for pictures I have, and then take it to my parents house on my next visit with minimal supplies and finish the album! I call that a win-win.

This month, we challenged each other to use at least one color that we don't normally use. The first color that came to mind for me was Marina Mist. I have to say after making this card, I'm sorry I have been overlooking this color. It's great for the sky and the balloons here, don't you think?

Fancy Friday - January 2016 Edition

Hello and welcome back! I'm here today with another Fancy Friday post. This month's theme is "No Red or Pink Valentine Challenge"! That's right...we might be a little crazy, taking on Valentine's without red or pink. But, everything you'll see is sure to be fancy and fantastic! You might have just arrived from the lovely Krista Frattin and her project. Here is my contribution for this month. I used a color scheme of Kraft, Gold, Calypso Coral, Soft Sky and Pool Party, with a little Very Vanilla and Basic Black thrown in.
