Stencils and Shaving Foam - Maker Forte


Hey crafty friends! I'm sharing a super fun technique using stencils, re-inkers and shaving foam. That's right...shaving foam! Go and raid your bathroom for the can of your husbands shaving foam! This is such a fun technique and yes, a little bit messy...but it's not fun if you don't get a bit messy! Just an fyi...the lighting was horrible when I took this, please don't hold that against me 😆

Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful - Maker Forte


Hi crafty friends...I'm sharing a floral slimline card with you today.  I'm a sucker for a beautiful floral and this one doesn't disappoint!  This is a gorgeous large floral made to fit a slimline card perfectly. When it comes to cards, I usually just stay in my comfort zone of the usual A2 size, I don't make alot of slimline cards.  I have 2 mediocre excuses reasons why....#1, I find them harder to photograph and #2, they use up too much of my precious paper lol.. But I had no excuse not to make one when I received this set!

Polychromatic - AECP

Hello friends...today I have card to share with you for the Polychromatic class for my level 2 AECP certification.  This class was taught by the very talented Nina-Marie Trapani and is filled with so many tips, techniques and lots of beautiful inspiration for adding colour to your cards.  For my project I decided to focus on the lesson on watercolouring with similar colours or rather in my case....the same colour.

Creative Watercolor Media - AECP


 Hello and welcome back!  Today I have my project to share with you for the Creative Watercolor Media class for my level 2 in the AECP.  This class was taught by 3 amazing and very talented artists....Jennifer Rzasa, Laura Bassen and Debby Hughes.  I am always in complete awe of Debby Hughes' work...she is an amazing watercolorist (is that a word?), so I decided to do one of the techniques she taught.....ink smooshing with masking using Altenew inks.
