Hi Friend,

Happy New Year! How is your week going? Brrr....it's a chilly -12 degrees here in Indiana...Are you recovering from all the hustle and bustle the holidays bring! What was one of your favorite moments?

Have you created your first project of 2018? If not, we're bringing you the first fresh new inspiration of 2018 that will get your creativity jump-started....it's amazing what taking the time to create something beautiful can do for you! Here's what Barbara shared that happened to her recently:

I learned so much from this online class. I have been making scrapbooks for many years. I wasn't sure this class would help me. I was wrong!! I learned many useful techniques that will come in handy with many of my future activities. I was so impressed that I have signed up for the next class. It is nice that I can replay the class whenever I want to. I was happy to see others materials can be used to make these projects. I can't wait to try out the techniques I learned. I loved seeing all the samples. ~Barbara Jane Johnson

Singing in the Rain Sneak Peek: Speaking of projects, behind the scenes, out entire team has busily been scampering around preparing for the debut of our first collection in 2018...can anyone say "cuteness overload" squeal, I have had sooo much fun creating with this collection and am over excited that we get to share a preview today! Who's excited about the Singing in the Rain Collection debuting online January 10th. You can see the entire preview here: http://hcgo.co/SingingInTheRain

Stamp and die cut some large and small Carnation by stamping using Cobalt Archival Ink. Color the flowers using broken china and shape the petals using 3D basic flower shaping molds. Shade the leaves using the crushed olive distress ink. Stamp and die cut some filler leaves using the broken china and cobalt ink and keep it white.

Instructions: The finished size of this tent fold card is 5.90in x 5.90in (15cm x 15cm). Make the card base, using the Kraft card-stock to measure 5.90in x 5.90 in. when folded into the tent fold. Find in the paper collection the design paper with the orange and white carnations in the border. Cut the border out of the paper using the paper cutting knife and steel edged ruler. Put aside the cut away center for another project, keep the pale green out side and adhere this to the card base with the dries clear glue or double sided tape. Find the design paper with the garden scene and cut this a little smaller than the card front as the second matting. Adhere now the frame to the card front with the 3d dots. Taking the white card-stock, stamp the sentiment with the Archival coffee ink. Find the die circle from the Large Circle die set that fits around the sentiment. Die cut the stamped circle, then die cut 4x extra circles. Adhere all the layers together to form a chipboard circle. Ink the edges of the sentiment circle with the Broken China and daubers. Adhere to the center of the card front.

Find the smallest die circle from the Small Circle die set and the design paper with the blue-sky color, die cut 17x circles. Cut the circles in a swirl shape. With the tweezers hold the center of the swirl and curl around the tweezers point as you are holding the paper. Keep twirling this for a short while to iron the shape. Remove the tweezers; this will now take the form of a rose bud. The rose bud tail end will later be secured at the same time the bud is adhered to the card with the hot glue gun.

Make the carnation flowers and leaves using the white card-stock. Stamping with the archival coffee ink and diecutting with coordinating die. The carnation stamp size chosen is the third from largest and one down. The carnations are made using 4 x layers. Shape using the flower shaping mold and running through the die cutting machine. Adhere together using the hot glue gun, the barn door ink is added to the petal tops then sprayed with water mist so the color will fade into the carnation flower. The leaves will be colored using both the forest moss and peeled paint green inks. Give the leaves shape by using the flower shaping tool kit. Taking the organza ribbon, wrap around the card then adhere at the card front. Make a full bow, adhere this to the card front with the hot glue gun. Using the hot glue gun to adhere the 3 rose buds in place across the bowknot, the carnations and leaves on each side of the bow. Place the rest of the rose buds as fillers to both the carnation clusters. To finish the card, apply the diamond stickles to the rose bud and carnation petal tips.
