By The Bay 12″ x 12″ project

When I saw ‘By The Bay’ suite at Onstage, I was immediately drawn to it. I love blues and I could see so many possibilities. I love watching the waves and sitting by the beach reflecting on the magnificence of the scene in front of me (in all weathers!), so I really wanted to make […]

By The Bay

I have fallen head over heels in love – with By the Bay Suite. I am not sure there is anything in this suite that I don’t like – except that maybe 12 x 12 DSP would have been great!!! Our team has had a swap challenge this past couple of weeks. We could use […]

The base is Balmy Blue and I added two layers of Snowflake Speciality Vellum with a strip of Silver foil in between. The sentiment is from Hope and Peace and was stamped in Versamark and heat […]

This month our theme was “Anything Goes” – choosing from the July – December Mini Catalogue. I purchased Cottage Wreaths bundle and have enjoyed playing with it. I teamed it up with Splendid Day DSP to create a monochromatic look on my card. The base is Evening Evergreen and I used a layer of Soft […]
