2011 Artisan Award blog hop

"This is one of the stops on the 2011 Artisan Award Blog Hop. We can't wait to share a closer look at our projects with you. There are ten stops along the way and it makes a complete circle. So when you end up back here, then you know you have visited everyone.You should have just come from Jennifer Picard's blog. She has an amazing creative eye!!!. Here's my project for today...
This is the first card I created after my Friend Jan challenged me to enter the Artisan contest. The sentiment "Remember When" seems all too fitting for this card. I designed it almost a full year ago! I am not a very successful last minute crafter, so I started early allowing plenty of time to play with my projects and not have to put my other job (as a mom) on hold.

I will miss this designer series paper...... but there are always beautiful packs that follow and fill that hole in my crafting world.

The focus of the card is butterfly. This is cut out with the big shot allowing me to cut all four of the layers at once.... I don't think I could stress the fact enough that the big shot is a crafters dream!!!

"That's my project for today, now hop on over to Summer Stone's blog to see her amazing project.


  1. Yay Heather so glad to see you posting! You are crazy talented and I am honoured to be an "artisan" with you. This card is fantastic:)


  2. Heather,
    I am so lovin' the colors and the details on this beautiful card. That butterfly is gorgeous!

  3. This card is amazing. This might sound a bit weird but I think it looks like it belongs in a museum. Fabulous work.
