Creativity is contagious so we want to pass it on to you, our G45ers, today! Maggi Harding and Pam Bray share two fabulous projects inspired by quotes they love. This is perfect inspiration for our #Words2CraftBy Challenge! Look at this gorgeous canvas from Maggi:
"Today I'm sharing a canvas I made from the new Midnight Masquerade collection to hang in my studio. I love sharing my art with others and I hope that I inspire you, so I find this to be a perfect quote, "Creativity is Contagious, Pass it On."
I fussy cut a lot of pieces for this canvas and used a lot of foam to pop up the pieces. Instead of using commercial flowers, I fussy cut some of the great flowers in this collection to use as embellishments." ~Maggi
Tip: Pull out your Stickles and add some sparkle to your project. Midnight Masquerade is the perfect collection for this. I added little dabs of Stickles in the flower centers. Too bad the camera doesn't pick up that sparkle but its there and it's a great subtle enhancement.

“'Every Moment You Create A Memory'….this is a motto that was laid on my heart when our son got married and was working all the time. I had to remind him that he was missing out on so many moments, so many memories because he was so busy making a living he forgot to make a life. A life filled with quiet times and times with his family and friends. Moments come and go quick but always remember they always will leave you with a memory!” ~Pam
Tip: Giving titles to your project that are arched is a clever way to title you projects.
Tip: Adhere pretty pieces of pattern paper scraps behind chipboard pieces helps to create layers on projects.
Tip: Using your own handwriting on a project not only adds a nice touch but it will also be a lasting memory.
