Make it Monday with Alison Day Designs2.pngWelcome to Make It Monday!

Today’s share is super quick because I know you’d way rather be outside in this gorgeous sunshine, right? I’m so glad June-uary is almost done with! Bring on summer!!

This is a card I made for my old boss. I needed something non-flowery, not pink, but fun to reflect his personality. He had just won Top Store Manager in the entire company so we really wanted something special.

Make it Monday with Alison Day Designs2.png Welcome to another Make It Monday post.

Oh, and welcome to Summer! For those of us up here in the Northern Hemisphere anyway. The sun did greet us today after a gloomy weekend. I take it as a good omen!

Today I am sharing with you my latest adventure.

Water colours!

As you’ll see in this video, I have a super duper expensive set that I’ve been using. Yep, no expenses spared on this making of this blog post! Take a look …

And here are the cards I mentioned at the beginning of my video.

Make it Monday with Alison Day Designs2.png Welcome to another Make it Monday!

Second week in a row – can I get a woot! woot! (Okay, it’s only the second week in a row but hey, I’ll take any small victory I can get at the moment!)

Today I have a quick card share. These are the cards I made for my daughter’s dance teachers this year. It’s been quite a year so each teacher also got a bottle of wine. I think they needed it! Continue reading »

Summer Publication

I am published! CSM Summer16 Did you hear the news? I had several projects published in the Summer edition of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine! This is the second time I’ve had layouts picked up for publication with them and it is such a thrill! Flipping through and seeing your own work in a magazine that is on the shelf at the grocery store is an amazing experience.

Want to see my projects?

Like you have a choice!

In order of appearance in the magazine they are … Continue reading »

Oh it’s been so long since I wrote a Make It Monday post! Have you missed them? I have and I am determined to get back on schedule!

With that being said, today I wanted to share these cute thank you cards for the teacher’s in your lives.

Some of you are already on summer break but up here we’ve got a few more weeks. We seem to be going until the bitter end of June this year! Ugh! The children (and some of the teachers too) are starting to lose focus in the classroom. Hope nobody has anything major planned for June!

Hello Beautiful card by Alison Day Designs

Sunshine Yellow

Posted on

Make it Monday with Alison Day Designs2.png Welcome to another Make It Monday here on my blog!

I have been absolutely horrible at getting my fellow Make It Monday blog circle gals organized so I decided to come up with my own graphic for days like today when it’s just me! What do you think? Give me paper and glue and I can come up with something cute 90% of the time but give me pixels and a mouse and … well … let’s just say I’m more of a hands-on kind of gal and leave it at that, shall we?

Moving on …

In my part of the world we are feeling the re-awakening of the world big time. The sun has warmth to it. The trees are turning green again. The grass has been mowed a couple times already. Spring is in full bloom and with it thoughts of summer start to creep in. I know, I know, summer?! But yes, summer!

In honour of that thought, I have made a bright, sunshine yellow card to share with you. Continue reading »
