Keeping it Simple

Yesterday I had a great Zoom chat with some of my Patreon Patrons. One topic of the chat was keeping it simple.

It’s super easy to craft with minimal supplies and still create beautiful projects.

I made this super simple card with an image printed on my computer, a bit of coloring, some ink blending, twine and white cardstock. I did not use one stamp or die.

Gift Card Giveaway

Hi friends,

I hope you are well and safe, wherever you are!  I hope you have had some time in your creative space to unwind and destress in a crazy time!  I am trying to stay positive and focus on gratitude…and that brings me to this giveaway.

I started a Patreon group about a month ago…it has been a blessing…I have such a sweet group of ladies over there and I truly am enjoying that platform.  There has been a learning curve, but that is good for me!  I announced a $50 Visa Gift Card Giveaway draw for Patrons who join by March 31st.  That deadline is coming up soon!  Anyone who subscribes ($3 US per month) by midnight CST on March 31st will be included in the draw!

I will do a video of drawing the winner and then communicate with the winner via email as to how they can claim the prize.  This gift card is in Canadian funds.

Thank you so much to all of you for your continued support and encouragement!  I love this crafty community so much!

Take care and stay safe!

Hey Crafty Girl

Hi Everyone, I hope you are doing well today!  I have a new project over on Patreon today using a bunch of the Simple Stories Hey Crafty Girlcollection.  This is such a fun collection to work with.  The colors are just so pretty and the theme is adorable.

I created a 12×12 layout using a bit of Vicki Boutin mixed media!  This was a blast and I hope my Patrons enjoy it!

Here is a sneak of the project:

Blank 1280 x 720 - 2020-03-09T134434.478

I would love to have you join us over on Patreon and see what is happening over there in my group.  I have been populating my platform with lots of fun content including layout process videos, product information and cut files.  Lots of inspiration! The subscription is $3 U.S. per month and that unlocks all content.  I also have a $50 Visa gift card giveaway draw for the first 50 patrons until the end of March. I will draw one name at that time for the gift card.

Patreon Update

Hi friends,

Hope you are having a wonderful day!  The days are getting longer here in Saskatchewan and I can start to feel the icy grip of winter start to let go!  Yay!  In “light” of that, I have been thinking of spring and have been posting “springy” content over on Patreon.  If you are not a Patron, you can sign up for just $3 U.S. a month.  That gets you all of the content I post.  I post one video at least each week as well as other exclusive content (so far includes original cut files I have designed).

Here is a little sneak of my last project:

Patreonfeb21c-2sneakforblog

I used an exclusive cut file design and some lovely spring colors to create this 12×12 layout.  I really love how it turned out!

We have a message board for comments and interaction/sharing which I also really love.  The Patrons have been enjoying the content so far!

I hope you will check out my Patreon!  Thank you so much!
