FUSION - Peacock Dynasty

Hello and welcome to FUSION! 

This week we are thrilled to welcome another new designer to the team!!! 

Welcome to Karren!


Hi, my name is Karren Johnson and I live in Christchurch, New Zealand with Pete, my fianc├ę of 22 years (yes, 22 years!) and our two boys, Matthew, 16 and William, 11.  I work full-time as a Regional Finance Manager for CourierPost -  the best courier company in NZ.
My mother introduced me to rubber stamping in about 1999.  She has been stamping for years and I decided to see what the attraction was, so I took a day off work and spent the day with her making Christmas cards.  It was fun, but I wasn’t immediately hooked.  However, when I was on maternity leave in 2002 with my youngest, I got bored so borrowed a few of Mum’s supplies.  And you can guess the rest...  In 2012, I started a blog and quickly got addicted to the challenge blogs!



Thank you, Karren! We are thrilled to be working with you! 

This week is all about "the birds" or blues or china or watercolouring or...if you can explain how you were inspired then you can craft it!!!


PROCEDURES:
1. Play with just the sketch challenge.
2. Play with just the inspiration photo challenge.
3. Or you can create FUSION by combining BOTH challenges into one card.
4. Use the challenge graphic and link back to Fusion in your post.
5. Please read the other considerations on the Our Rules Page before playing along.

Here are some fabulous cards by our design team showing you how it works!

I loved how Christine turned our sketch on its side to create a FUSION of sketch and photo with her chalkboard scene - and that little bookworm made me smile!

FUSION: Back to School! (We are back!)

Welcome to FUSION. We are excited to be back and hope you are ready to join in! Be inspired by the photo or follow the sketch or both!!

We are thrilled to welcome Sandie Munro to the team!

"Hi there! I'm Sandie and I am passionate about making cards. I started crafting a few years ago and once I started I couldn't stop! My style is Clean and Simple. I am happiest when I have created a card with just stamps and inks and lots of white space! When I am not crafting, I like to walk, grow my own vegetable, and watch movies. I live in London and I love to explore all that it has to offer!
PROCEDURES:
1. Play with just the sketch challenge.
2. Play with just the inspiration photo challenge.
3. Or you can create FUSION by combining BOTH challenges into one card.
