  1. Afternoon everyone!

    So yesterday i spent my evening in a pile of christmassy crafty goodies on the floor & created some cards! As many of you know card making isn't something i'm very confident in yet but i'm keen to share my designs & ideas and hear your feedback.

    I'm using a range of different materials & techniques to create the cards so i hope you like them.

    All the items that i use to create the cards are available from Go Create Seaton, any questions please contact gocreateseaton@hotmail.com

    Morning everyone,
      
      I decided to start looking for challanges to inspire me to make more cards with varied styles. I managed to find a wide range of places offering challanges and not only for cards but for other arts & crafts too. I'm looking forward to getting more involved in the social media world and crafty online world!

    I created this card with two challanges in mind, one was relating to citrus colours and the other was a photo challange which had flowers & lemons in the photo. I felt this card fitted well with both requests.

    I would like to enter this card into the following: 

    Cute Card Thursday - Citrus - http://cutecardthursday.blogspot.co.uk/2015/07/challenge-384-citrus.html

    Addicted to stamps - Photo inspiration challange  

     

  3. I created this card to match the theme request from 'in the pink' of pink & starry and combined the challange with that set by Fab n Funky by not using a patterned paper in the card just a simple pink backing paper and also one set by 'papertake weekly' which had an option to use lace in the card. Hopefully the card is suitable for these challanges, as you'll know i'm new to the world of online challanges.

    I liked using lace and ribbon on this one, i think i'll use those materials again and see what effects i can create. I used star punches in two different sizes as well the the star gems.

    I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

    In The Pink - Starry Pink

    Fab & Funky Challange - No Patterned Paper

  4. I can't believe it's the 1st of August already! Surely i'm not the only one?

    July was a jam packed month of creativity and events.

    My favourite event has to be the Axmouth Village show where i had the honour of judging the crafts section. There were some fantastic entries it was very difficult to choose the winners but i took my time and had a good look at all the items. I hope all the winners and those who entered enjoyed the show too.

    I've had a good time creating this month with all the new ranges, i'm starting to enjoy card making again after a year or so break from it. I've even had a go at decoupaging on items and cards i have to say i was pleased with the finished pieces. Decopatching will still remain my favourite activity though!


    In the shop we have had lots of new products arrive in store such as the folk floral range, classic decadance and artist brushes to name just a few. We are starting to expand the range of artist materials after many requests and suggestions from the local community. So thank you for your feedback we really do value it!

    We have also had lots of creative children join us this past week in the art room for drop in arts & crafts, there are some really talented young ones out there!

    Finally i want to close on a THANK YOU to everyone who has supported me in my creative journey over the past 6 years. I never dreamed i would be able to make a career out of something i love but you have all enabled me to do so. Having my little craft centre in Seaton make me the happiest i have ever been and my sons are loving it here too, the community and the visitors here are lovely. The amazing feedback and comments i get on my shop, workshops and parties makes all the hard work so THANK YOU!

    Going forward i would really like to get my personal creative work out there a little more by joining challenges, design teams and anything else thats out there to push me forward in my creative journey. So please do give me a shout if you have any suggestions.

    Love and glitter,

    Kerri-Ann
