An Artful Year (part 2)

Hey everyone and welcome back to part 2 of my artful year in craft! Hope you enjoyed yesterday's post and if you missed it, just scroll down past today's post to see Part 1 ~ January to June!

So, here we go and we're kicking off with...
JULY 2014
To begin with I loved this card that I created for the blog hop to celebrate the new release of dies and stamps from Simon Says Stamp. You can see the original card and all about the release HERE.
I also loved this card I created for Craftwork Cards using the Refresher collection. It was a beautiful colour palette that contained die cut flowers and papers.
This is another project that was made for Simon Says Stamp and I used lots of Tim Holtz products to make this tri fold book card.
This month saw me making my interpretation of Tim's August Tag...
...but it also saw me announce some very exciting news that was beyond my wildest dreams ~ I was honoured to be joining the Tim Holtz Media Team and this was the first piece I created for the team.
As we started to say goodbye to Summer, I started thinking towards Autumn and Halloween and this was the first of my Halloween cards that I created for Simon Says Stamp, using some of the new stamp releases from Tim Holtz.
This has to be one of my favourite projects that I made this year! I just loved every single thing about it, from the colour palette to the beautiful metallic die cut dragonfly ~ I couldn't have been happier with how it turned out!
I also wanted to share my first piece of September that I made for the Tim Holtz Media Team, using that fabulous Layered Leaf die to create this canvas.
I couldn't choose just two projects this month, and my third favourite was this burlap panel that I created for Simon Says Stamp.
...and the fourth project I chose for this month was this card! I absolutely love this stamp from Wendy Vecchi and combined it with those beautiful alphabet stamps from Simon Says Stamp and Tim Holtz die cuts.
In October, I created two cards for a Making Cards Magazine project and once again, I was thrilled to have this project featured on the cover of the magazine.
October also saw me in full on crafting mode creating projects for Halloween and you can see my Halloween Invitation project in all it's glory, HERE.
Inside the invitation
I also made this spooky little ATB for Simon Says Stamp
...and this was my interpretation of Tim's October tag.
This month I packed up all my Halloween goodies and started crafting for Christmas and this was a piece I created for the Tim Holtz Media Team ~ a gift card holder using Tim's brand new stamps and dies.
Another Christmas card featuring more Tim Holtz products and I love the Dickensian feel to this card.
One of my most talked about projects of the year was my last piece for the Tim Holtz Media Team ~ my winter wonderland plaque. I still pinch myself when I read all your lovely comments and I can't thank you enough for all the love you showed this project.
This is another Christmas card, created for Making Cards Magazine and featured on the cover of the November issue.
Finally, here we are in the final month of the year and these were all my projects created for December.

So, that's it from me for today and thank you so much for all your visits throughout 2014! It's been such an amazing year for me where I saw so many of my dreams become reality and as a new year starts in a few days time, I hope you'll enjoy the next chapter of my creative journey!

See you all very Emma xx
