Summer is a time of lots of frivolous and fun activities. Living like someone left the gate open is a great objective for summer. My card features a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp set paper pieced and coloured with alcohol markers, Copic and Spectrum Noir.

This jubilant fairy is on a small box with roses. The fairy is from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and I coloured her with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse using a waterbrush with a little shadowing of Distress marker. I love the subtle sparkly of the mousse. The box is an Eileen Hull steel rule die by Sizzix coloured with an embossing folder from Taylored Expressions, Nuvo Embellishment Mouse, and Prima Art Alchemy. The fairy is on a wobbler so she has dimension and bounce.

A light-up bug for an expression of summer love, my card features stamps from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, Daniel Smith watercolouring, and a Chibitronics light.

One of my favourite summer activities is binging movies. It's a great way to stay out of the heat from the sun and in a cool shady location. So, I made a popcorn box for holding popcorn with a binge-watching, popcorn-munching girl as the perfect pairing for a movie night. The box features a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps set coloured with Nuvo watercolour pencils, and two Spellbinders die sets. What summer movie do you want to watch first?

Sympathy cards are some of the hardest cards to make, not because of their complexity, but the emotion behind them. The card I made for today features two Kraftin' Kimmie stamp sets, Krafty Kolors ink, and Prismacolor pencils on Bristol.

I love vibrant colours. I also love romanticised Victorian fashion and carousels. Thus my choice for this week's inspiration project for Through the Craftroom Door's challenge blog.
This week's sponsor for the Through the Craftroom Door's blog challenge is Lucy Sunshine! The random draw prize is 3 images.
Heather Valentin is a lady who breathed art her entire life. She was drawing as soon as she could hold a crayon. Guided by her father. She found her truest joy in drawing and painting, in a BA in arts. Heather made her way in the world by creating original drawings and installations for various global companies / corporations for advertisement and display purposes.
Heather true love has always been creating her original copyrighted characters and sharing them with her appreciative public. Her beloved characters are recognizable worldwide her signature eyes, and drawing style mostly featuring mismatched clothing and characters from days gone by. Making people smile with her art is Heather's greatest joy.
My project features the Peacock Carousel which I coloured with Prismacolor pencils on Craft with highlights of Gelly Roll pens.
The Kaisercraft wooden frame is covered with paper that's been embellished with Nuvo Mousse and embossed with a Crafter's Companion 3D folder.

I love purple. I love a variety of colour, too. I decided to pair a Kraftin' Kimmie fairy with an Elizabeth Craft Design calligraphy die and a fantastic 3-D embossing embellished with Nuvo mousse. The fairy was coloured with Finetec mica watercolour and Distress marker.
