Get Creative With Type


This last May, I was very busy working on some layouts and fonts for an upcoming book from Creating Keepsakes.
FONTS - I dig them! Almost all of my scrapping purchases include letter stamps/ stickers. I just can't seem to get enough of them. Getting chosen to contribute to this book gave me the boost I needed to use my stash in creative ways. The experience was fun and I learned a lot along the way. After that I moved on and got busy with other stuff. Then a few days back, I got an advanced complimentary copy and I was floored. There are 164 pages & projects in the book and they are bound to inspire you in one way or another.
For me, the personal high point is being in a book where THE HEIDI SWAPP contributed :)
You can read all the details and even join a discussion group following the links from here: http://www.creatingkeepsakes.com/content/viewissue/1221/45
I hope to see some of you there :)
Have a great day!

December mid-month challenge at Cocoa Daisy


and here's the page I did for my own challenge using their December kit. Not traditional Christmas colors but all the little things in the kit are way cool. You can read the details about the challenge here if you want : http://www.cocoadaisy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=1993
Feel free to join in and play along...that is, if you have the TIME :) Boy, I can't believe another Christmas is just 10 days away.

So I took a break...

Haven't been very productive this past month... it could be the holiday season, it could be the Mumbai events, it could even be the weather... I just gave myself the permission to slack a little.
Weather has been unpredictable around here with morning frosts, high 70s in the afternoons and then again, showers through the nights!
We have the tree up, the bushes are decked with lights now... Nini has made pink snowflakes, Ayush keeps saying 'Nutcwacker' and I'm nesting...
Here's a project I did for Fiskars with the generous box of goodies May sent me. You can find the details at http://www.fiskarscrafts.com/projects/t_uslayout.aspx
Hope your holiday season is busy in a sweet way :)
