Favorite 15 of 2015
Hello Crafty Friends!  As promised, today's post is a recap of my 15 favorite projects of 2015.  The recap is a long post so I will list my New Year resolutions tomorrow.  :)
Above is the first favorite project of 2015: You are Sunlight to my heart.  Loved how the card turned out- especially the colors against the ivory and gold.
The Love Lives Here wall art used some of my favorite Graphic 45 papers (Bird Song), Tim Holtz' Butterfly Bigz die set and stamps from Quietfire.  The wall art is hanging in my craft room and I plan to always have it there.
The vintage style masculine gift card wallet was time consuming to make but once I figured out dimensions, I was happy with the results.
Loved the colors of the pop up box and fussy cutting all of the wee bits to make the French Country scene.
I was very fortunate to be a Guest Designer at Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine.  The card used Quietfire's Believe die- my fave!  The brick background was stamped and embossed with fired brick embossing powder for a tres cool texture.
How could I not choose Pepper's scrapbook page?  She is such a beautiful kitty and Graphic 45's Raining Cats and Dogs papers matched her photo perfectly.
The above butterfly creativity card had so many different layers, techniques and products used.  It took a few nights to complete and was well worth it.
I dwell in Possibility card used not only one of my favorite new release stamps from Quietfire but also used Marion Smith's Junque Gypsy papers and Ranger ink products such as Crackle and Stickles.
Sometimes the simplest card sketch results in a favorite card.  The above Friendship card used Quietfire's lovely stamp and Graphic 45 bold papers.  And butterflies.  Who doesn't love butterflies?
Talking about butterflies, the above miracles card is another favorite project from 2015.  Love the sentiment, the Tim Holtz distress colors and the Thinlits Mixed Media die corner.
I am beginning to realize I may have an obsession with butterflies...and saying the word "love".  Another butterfly project using Tim Holtz inks, a mixed media corner die and the fave Believe die from Quietfire.
At first I thought that I had a project without a butterfly but I forgot I adhered one above the stamped sentiment.  But, the butterfly was a sweet touch to the Paris themed Friendship card.
Oh look!  A project without a butterfly. LOL.  This Halloween themed tag is definitely in my top fave projects to make in 2015.  My hands were covered in ink and I so enjoyed grunging up the embellishments and placing crackle on the owl eyes.
The blessing fall card was picked for a few reasons: it was fun to make, the colors are fabulously fall and I made this at my first papercrafting weekend retreat with my friend, Janice.  The weekend was a blast and I will always remember that crafty weekend!
Lastly- but not leastly- was this upcycled wall hook using many Tim Holtz products from glitter and paste to ink, corrugation, crackle, dies and paper.  I look forward to hanging it up again next year.
