Crazy Crafters May Blog Hop with special guest - Dena Rekow


Hello! It's so exciting to take part once again in this month's Crazy Crafters blog hop. We're honoured to have a special guest Dena Rekow - she's super talented and highly creative. As part of the blog hop we are CASEing one of her cards and that is "Copy And Selectively Edit". :)

I have chosen to base my CASE on her brilliant idea to use the Project Life Kits to make cards and albums.  Project Life is such a great tool for both Memory Keeping as well as using the cards in the kit to make your own cards. It's a new area with a new possibilities that I would love to explore and share with you how wonderful and easy it is to use.

Here are the cards I have based my CASE on:





...And here are the cards that I have created: 









I have paired the Happiness is Project Life Card Collection with the new stamp sets bundles, Swirly Bird and Thoughtful Banners. As you can see it's very simple and easy to do. You just take a card/patterned paper of your choice from the collection as a background and start decorating to your heart's content. I have appropriated Dena's design and adapted the flower from the new stamp set and colour coordinated to match the patterned paper. I have also used the new In-colors and they just go well with the new stamped images. 









The wonderful thing with these new stamp bundles is that it makes it so much easier to die cut and punch out your banners that you can place on your card or album. You can really take it to the next level depending on the look you want to achieve. Now is a great time to get the Happiness is Project Life card collection as it's on the clearance rack heavily reduced! It's a great way to try out the new Project Life if you haven't already and it's great value for money with so many designs to choose from. The new stamp sets are available in the Pre-order brochure and will be available in June for customers. I hope you enjoyed the cards I made using the Project Life kit.  Thank you so much Dena for your inspirational work to use Project Life. It has inspired me to incorporate Project Life with my card making and also start Memory Keeping in a creative way. :) 

Make sure you continue to hop all the way around and see all the amazing inspiration from the Crazy Crafters team. You are going to love what our team have come up with using Dena's cards. Currently you are at my blog - Juana Ambida - so check the list to see who is up next. Enjoy!
