I should really title this post ‘blogging on location’! Just as we were heading out the door for a few days holiday the new Create Joy release from Simon Says Stamp arrived on my doorstep. This is a another jam-packed release of delicious goodies and as I was flying out the door couldn’t help but grab a couple of sets and some very basic craft supplies.
It has certainly been a reminder to me of creating with minimal supplies! Oh and a flash back to the My Mind’s Eye patterned paper I used to use as a backdrop to my photos. Love that paper still! I’m rambling again, but as with all new releases I find it helpful to see the release laid out so here’s the Create Joy release in full :D
Of course I had to reach for the cute kitties from the Christmas Cats set, stamping them in Memento Tuxedo Black, cutting them out with their matching dies and then colouring them with Copics. In my minimal on-the-go supplies I’d packed Sea Glass and Lipstick Red inks so I used Sea Glass to add a little color to the bottom of a panel and then stamped the sentiment from the set in Lipstick Red. I then mounted the panel on the front of one of the new scored card bases made from Simon’s 120lb card stock – a great essential for convenient crafting while on location :D I also packed my watercolors so I’m back tomorrow taking part in a hop to celebrate the new Create Joy release. I hope you will join me then :D In the meantime check out the Create Joy release and for more inspiration others will also be posting and using the tag #ssscreatejoy so you can find things easier :D
