A Year In Cards

So, as the year comes to a close, I thought it would be fun to look back over my year in cards. This includes some of my very favourite cards that I've made in 2010.

This time last year, I could only dream of what I was going to achieve and it all started with a position on The Crafthouse Press DT. Since then, I've been lucky enough to meet and work alongside some of the biggest names in the industry. In July, I got to demonstrate at the QVC Customer Event alongside Dawn Bibby and a few others, that had inspired me to join this wonderful community.

In May, I was honoured to become part of the fabulous Craftwork Cards Design Team and I'm also soon to be featured regularly in Making Cards magazine. Then, last but by no means least, I was invited by the lovely and extremely talented, Barbara Gray, to join the Design Team of ClarityStamp. It still gives me a buzz to see all my cards shown monthly on Create and Craft. To be honest, I really can't believe all this has happened to "just me".

So, here we go...month by month, the ride of my life... 




This month saw my first appearance in Crafts Beautiful magazine, featuring the fabulous Gorjuss range from The Crafthouse Press.









And finally, two more of the very special Christmas cards that I made and never actually got around to showing...hope you like them.

Well, as you can see it's been one helluva rollercoaster ride but I've enjoyed every single minute of it, so far. As for 2011 and what that brings...I can't wait to see but I know that there will be plenty of thrills and excitement along the way. Hope you'll all be there to join me for the ride....

Love Emma

  3. I've been meaning to leave a comment on this post. Never too late, right? ;)) Such beautiful work you've created throughout the year, and I love the last special card you posted for so many reasons. ;p <3

    The raindrop card will always be a favourite of mine too. Really clever and too cute. Can't wait to see everything else you create this year, Em!
