Tomorrow we celebrate Father's Day here in New Zealand, and this is the fun Father's Day card that I created using lots of texture, distressed elements, and the fabulous World of Good Suite...

How cute is this!!!  This darling little suitcase gift box has the retro-feel of a vintage travel suitcase, complete with buckled luggage straps.

This week's Your Creative Connection theme is SHADES OF BLACK AND WHITE.  A black and white Christmas anyone?  Take a look at these cute, hinged metal tins that are the perfect size for small Christmas treats.

This card has two fun techniques... constructing a beautiful paper Peony and using the scrappy strip technique for a fabulous background. First I'll share how some tips on how to create this card and then I'll give you a photo-fest of how to create the Peony using the Peony Dies.

Green is not a colour I normally reach for.  However, the combination of greens in the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper range from a deep emerald-blue through to a soft lime-green and they are totally gorgeous!  Inspired by these papers and colour combinations, I decorated a Mini Paper Pumpkin Box...

This week's Your Creative Connection theme is HOW TINY IS THIS?  At the time of creating a project for this theme, I had off-cuts and little scraps of the lovely Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper lying on my desk.  These tiny scraps of designer paper plus some coordinating cardstock were pieced together to create a border for this card that features the new Love of Leaves stamp set and coordinating Stitched Leaves Dies...

The new Love of Leaves stamp set and matching Stitched Leaves Dies from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalogue coordinate beautifully with the Forever Greenery Suite from the current annual catalogue.  Take a look at how I've used these together to create this pop-up front-step card...

This week's Your Creative Connection theme is RETURN TO THE FOLD.  My first inclination was to create a fancy fold card but, instead, decided to use the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to fold a cute wee gift bag.
