Creativation Revealed

Round 2 for all of the fabulous products being featured at the Creativation 2017 Show...

Salted Navy Enamel Embossing Powder

and we have a couple of stamps to tie into some of our spring embellishments coming soon.

Sea Shells and Flowers


Starting with Sara and her wall art, check out Team 2 and the way they used some of the new products,


I was so excited to open my box from Emerald Creek this month to find some amazing new stamps and the most beautiful stones along with new-to-me Onyx Frost Embossing Powder. Right away, I knew I wanted to try my hand at an organic abstract canvas. I used texture paste, crackle paste, grit paste and embossing powders to get this rich stone like texture. Adding some background stamping, (using Kim's new shell stamps) and those glimmer-y new stones added even more texture to this abstract canvas. Please click on my name above, if you would like to see some close ups and a step-by-step tutorial.



I went to Munich last November with my son and husband and we visited the treasury in the beautiful residence. They have a lot of old crowns and other treasures made of gold and jewels on display and when I received my last DT parcel with the wonderful gemstones in it, I knew immediately that I wanted to create my own treasure chest with loads of gold and jewels on it. The fab Emerald Creek embossing powders were just perfect for creating the gold and metal look on the chest's lid and metal fittings!



This week, Creativation (formerly known as CHA) is in Phoenix AZ; it is one of the largest Craft and Hobby Shows out there. We are all very excited with the new products that Emerald Creek Supplies will be debuting at the show. I know I was super excited when I received my design team box! It had some of the newest stamps, charms and a fabulous batch of Mixed Media Stones that will be available soon in the Emerald Creek Supplies Store.  Today, I am sharing with you my "Fearless" Card using the two new Seashell Stamps and Mixed Media Stones along with the amazing embossing powder that Emerald Creek Supplies manufactures. 


It was a sentimental time for me while I created this layout, not only because the photos are special, but because this will be my last project with the Emerald Creek Design Team! I look forward to future collaborations and I am so excited for Kim and her CHA adventure this month! She has release some fabulous new products and I especially loved playing with her new Quarry gemstones! They are stunning and there is such a wonderful selection! I was incredibly inspired by the stones and the ocean themed stamps, so I decided it was the perfect time to scrap some beach photos! Please check out my process video of the whole layout here!

  7. Visited there last weekend with a group of friends, and had all the fun we could handle. I really like the ambiance at venues in Los Angeles. There's a decent draft beer selection at a reasonable price and the bartenders are good at what they do.
