Emerald Creek CHA Creativation Release "Long Beach" Layout

Today I am sharing a project for Emerald Creek's CHA Creativation release! I had the chance to play with some brand new product and I really had a blast!

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 really look forward to future collaborations between Wild Whisper and Emerald Creek. 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! These will be available for order when CHA begins. 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 below!

These embossing powders were so much fun to play with! I think they created the perfect sand and water look!
Just look how adorable these tiny Quarry gemstones look! I can't wait to use them on more projects! I photographed this while my tacky glue was still wet, but it will dry clear ;)
I think the stitching added a nice little bit of extra texture (as if the powders aren't textured enough!) and it also secured this challenging piece to the background cardstock.
Oh those gems! And that adorable starfish stamp! Below you can see I created a pocket for my journaling, as I wanted to keep this page simple and clean (my version anyway).

Emerald Creek Winter Wishes Christmas Polka Tag

I have been getting in the Christmas spirit for about a month now, as it is my very favourite time of year! I am so happy that it is now socially acceptable to put up the tree and blast the holiday tunes. I am looking forward to getting a Christmas tree this weekend and we just decorated everything at work too!

Today I am sharing a project for Emerald Creek! This month's challenge is "Winter Wishes", which I think leaves it very open to interpretation! Just for entering a project on the Emerald Creek Dares blog, you will receive a discount in the store! You will also have the chance to win $50 to the store! Get your project in before the end of the month for your chance to win!

The tag I created really embodies the traditional Christmas vibe for me. I loved using my new Christmas Polka Stamp on the background with the beautiful Champagne powder. From there, it all came together quite well. I hope you enjoy the process video below and be sure to check out the other talented design team member's posts: Sara, Deb, Pam, and Cassandra.

Hello and happy Friday! I am so excited to be participating in Wild Whisper's very first blog hop tonight! If you haven't yet heard, Wild Whisper is a paper company that I co-own with my friend and business partner Suzy Dube. We currently have two paper collections, Adventure and Holiday Style, as well as many other wonderful boutique-type embellishments that coordinate perfectly! We are hosting this hop via the company blog and we are so excited about the incredibly talented lineup that we have participating with us!

You will have one week to leave all of your comments before the contest closes Friday November 25th at 6pm MST.

This lucky person will receive both collections including the 12x12 papers and the pocket scrapbooking cards! We hope that you enjoy this little challenge and also get filled with inspiration from all of the incredible projects!

Here is my video for this fun project using the Adventure collection! Don't for get to check out the next hop post after watching, the link is at the end of my post.

Live Inspired Interview by Tracie Claiborne

Today one of my dreams came true. Ever since I started listening to the Scrap Gals and the Live Inspired podcasts, I have thought about what it would be like to be interviewed or to share my ideas with a larger audience online. Today I did just that and got to hear my own voice being interviewed by the incredible Tracie Claiborne!

If you would like to listen to me discuss our new business, Wild Whisper, and talk about my thoughts on December Daily, then look no further! You can listen by clicking play on the widget below, or by following this link.

I am so grateful to Tracie for having me on her show! It was just a fun time and she was so easy to talk to. 

Unfortunately Suzy couldn't be part of the interview this time, but if you would like to hear from both of us, you should also check out this video that we posted on Wild Whisper's YouTube channel. Don't forget to subscribe to us there too!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope this helped you to get to know Wild Whisper a little bit better. I would also like to remember all of those who have served or are serving our country today. This Remembrance Day, I am especially thankful to live in a country where people have fought to keep our freedom and let our voices be heard.
