Wild Whisper - Flowers Grow Back

Hi everyone!

I was thinking of the new reality we're all living in, when I made this project for the Wild Whisper blog today.  If ever we needed "Strength for the Season" it is now!  So I hope that in some small way, this canvas sends a breath of hope and strength into your creative space.

Here's a little snippet of the full project that you can see here on the Wild Whisper Blog.

Wild Whisper's new release is going to be available on the website and in stores over the next week or so.  It's a tentative time frame as they're still waiting for some stock to come.  Trust me, it's going to be worth the wait!  

They are still able to ship products anywhere in the world right now... AND they have FREE Canadian shipping if you spend over $75 plus FREE International shipping for orders over $100.  It will automatically discount at checkout.  If all that isn't enough, put my discount code "DTLINDA" in the coupon box and you will receive an extra 10% off your order. 

Here's a little sneak peek at what's coming:

There's more too because Nicole Wright and Pam Bray also have new releases!  There will be lots to keep you busy while you are home!  

Take care and stay safe!

More Than Words Challenge: Food and Square Photo

Hi everyone!

There's 5 more days left to get in on the March More Than Words Challenge - Use Food & a Square Photo on your project.

Instagram pics come to mind for this one! Do you have a yummy FOOD photo to share? Or maybe you have a family snap of a barbeque, a picnice, or a romantic dinner? We want to know about the special food you've eaten, or an event focussed around food. We need to see in your project how our word inspired you. If it isn't obvious in your work, then please explain it in your post. Add a SQUARE PHOTO to your project. We don't mind if it's an Instagram photo or if you've cropped a standard photo, so long as it's square! If you don't want to add a photo, we want to see a square element on your project.

For this challenge, I chose to share the celebration of my mom's 80th birthday in a scrapbooking layout.  HER mom (my grandmother) was famous for her Mayonnaise Chococolate Cake (FOOD) which was baked for EVERY family birthday celebration.  So I followed tradition and baked the cake for my mom this year.

The SQUARE PHOTO is of my mom and is tucked into the envelope behind my grandma.

For this layout, I used a lovely heritage paper collection from Close to my Heart 

I stamped the background with the Botanic stamp available through Wild Whisper, and the jewelled embellishments are by Prima - "Christmas in the Country".

All the other embellishments are from the Yesterday and Today collection.

I thought I would include the recipe for anyone who would like to try it.  It doesn't require any eggs if you should be having difficulty finding any during this difficult period of quarantine that is going on around the world.  The mayonnaise replaces both the eggs and the oil traditionally used in cake recipes.  It's very delicious, fluffy and moist!

Do give the challenge a try!  You will find all the details here.  Did I mention we have an amazing number of awesome prizes up for grabs!!!

Happy creating!

Wild Whisper - Upcycling is Fun

Hi everyone,

I've got a new project up on Wild Whisper's blog.

I upcycled a box to store my colouring pages from my monthly classes at Kit and Clowder.  Here's a sneak peak of the front.  There's more pics and details here.

A glimpse of the inside as well.

If you're looking for something to do during this time of  social distancing... I highly recommend Alyce's classes and her facebook group.  She is one of the most up-lifting and talented people I have met online!

Stay healthy and happy by creating!

More Than Words February Mini Challenge - WHEN

Hi everyone!

More Than Words is introducing a new February Mini Challenge today, using the word WHEN on your project.  Here in Canada, February is a tough month because we've been through a long, very cold winter and we're anxious for spring to come.  It's still a ways off yet, but I chose to make a tag full of flowers to cheer myself up!

For this tag, I used a bit of this and that.  The tag base is made out of  Wild Whisper paper using Nicole Wright's Media Assemblage paper collection.

The focal part of the tag, is a rose bouquet that I stamped on watercolour paper using Nicoles's Botanic stamp set and coloured using Derwent Inktense Pencils.  The cute bows are a Close to my Heart product.  The pretty leaf flair button is from Wild Whisper's Strenth of the Season collection.  The rest of the embellishments are bits and pieces that I had in my stash or laying on my craft desk.

Entries for this challenge are due at the end of the month... Feb 29th, by 11pm MST.  Rules can be found here.  Give it a try - it's a lot of fun and you have a chance to win 4 fabulous prizes!  Our sponsors for this challenge are Creative Embellishments, Dusty Attic, Fabrika Decoru, and Scrap Accent!!!

Come back this Wednesday, February 19th and I will show you a project that I have made using this tag as an embellishment!

In the meantime, Happy Crafting!
