A Creativation 2017 Find - Guest Designer Josafine

Creativation was an incredible adventure this year.

I am always looking for that take away or that special something. I will breakdown all that happened in the coming posts, but being so busy when I returned, a vortex was created that has sucked time away faster then I could imagine.
But the first of my takeaways was Josafine Fouarge

(aka @holylise on instagram or +HolyLise on google)
Josafine joined in one of our make and takes on the Creativation show floor.  Her passion was ignited in the project and she fell in love with the products. Much to my surprise she inquired about any DT openings and I took a blind gamble and went with a guest post. 
Moments like this is why the Creative Arts industry is so wonderful, the unknown talent is limitless. I was thrilled and covered in goosebumps when she submitted a rough project photo.

Rock the Red - PT2

The Red Train rolls on ...

with more Brilliance from the Design Team!

Check out what they have created and then enter your own awesome Red works of Art.


Leading us is Cathy. This is her last post with the Emerald Creek Design Team and although I am thrilled for her new opportunities with other design teams, I am a little sad that she will not be here every month. Cathy will always be part of the Emerald Creek Family and I have been blessed to have had her on my design team for the last 18 months. XXOO


Well this piece is for my Emerald Creek family. For all the inspiration, all the support and a lot of laughs over the last year and a half. One of the best things I have been blessed to be a part of and contribute to.

What an amazing January. 

I have to admit I am behind in my updates and posts but I am really excited to be moving forward in 2017 and hopefully finding a bit of routine and rhythm. February is going to be packed with lots of love for all that Creativation offered last month and for the wonderful wrap up of 2016 in December, so make sure you follow and don't miss anything.

BUT, in the spirit of moving forward we are going to be highlight all things Red. So bring your A Game and show us how RED inspires you this month.



The idea for this tag popped up in my head when I found this beautiful background that was actually a scrap from a monoprinting technique I had used on another project some weeks ago. I just loved the patterns the paints had created on my paper - and red it was. So I knew I had to use this for a big tag alongside the fab Chinese New Year Emerald Creek embossing powder!
