Carols of Christmas Bundle

Carols of Christmas Bundle Heading - BLOG

Hello friends! I hope you had a fabulous weekend! We’ve certainly been busy! We finally got started on new flooring in our basement since our last flooding, and I took my boys to an amazing farm for some apple picking and lots of play! Weekends pass way too soon, don’t they?

I have a couple of cards to share with you today using the new Carols of Christmas Bundle from the new Holiday Catalogue.

Carols of Christmas - BLOG

I just love that Stampin’ Up! included Brown Craft Paper and Old Olive Cardstock together as the Merry Little Christmas Bundle.  Coupled with Basic Black Cardstock, it just looks so great and I think the colour combination really works! I even used the new Champaign Foil Sheets for the cute little deer that comes in the bundle as part of the framelits.

 

I should also note that the card above is also part of the Card Swap I am participating in with my Stampin’ Up! Team! I’m so excited to participate with such a wonderful group of ladies! If you want to know more about joining my team, click HERE!

Carols of Christmas - PROMO

This is another beautiful card that I created with the bundle! Isn’t it stunning? I coupled it with the Be Merry Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalogue, as well as the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies and the  beautiful Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon.

I just love how both of these cards turned out! Is this bundle on your wish list?

You can see a complete list of all the supplies I used to create today’s card, with clickable links to My Canadian Online Stampin’ Up! Store at the end of this blog post. I’d love to be your Canadian Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.

GSF Blog Hop – Kids Cards

Hello friends!

I’m sorry I’ve been a little MIA recently – I have good reason with some exciting things coming down the pipe! Until I can release any more info, I am back to regular posting. And what a better way to be back than with a Blog Hop with my friends over at the Global Stamping Friends?!

gsf-blog-hop
Today’s hop is all about Kids Cards! Sometimes I struggle with kids cards even though the perception is that they’re easy to make. To be honest, I find them the most challenging! Kids likes and dislikes are constantly changing, so sometimes it’s hard to keep up!

Having said that, I think I’ve come up with a couple of kids cards that will impress even the toughest of our little critics!

Enter: the Magical Mermaid Stamp Set!

Mermaid Card

Isn’t this just gorgeous? I used Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay, and Dapper Demin ink to create the beautiful watercolour background, and then used the Watercolour Pencils to colour in the mermaid. Unfortunately, there are no dies or framelits with this set, but it’s nothing a little fussy cutting can’t solve!

Oh, and just in case you’re wondering about the watermark on the photo, Sweet Paper Studios is my other small business. You can learn more and check out my page by clicking HERE.

My next card involves a little punch art! I don’t do very much punch art, but when I do, I can’t help but go all-out!

Leo Lion Card - Stamping Girl

This sweet little lion was created using the Fox Builder Punch, along with a 2″ scallop punch for his mane. You can find the leaves in the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies.

Leo Lion 2 - Stampin' Girl

I just love how both of these cards turned out and I know that the recipients loved them too!

What about you, do you find kids’ cards hard to design?

Event Recap :: Catalogue Launch Party!

I recently held my Catalogue Launch Party and I had so much fun! It was great to see some new faces, as well as some of my faithful customers! 🙂

I am just in love with the new annual catalogue and I was just so excited to show off some new products. I had samples, treats, and even provided some super cute Catalogue Survival Kits!

Oh, and I even found some cupcakes with ‘Powder Pink’ frosting! So fun!

CupcakesSet-up 1Survival Kit-2

When I host an event, I really do try to add small, special, and personal touches for my customers. I appreciate every single one, and going the extra mile for them is my way of saying thank you. The Catalogue Survival Kits were one way of doing that, but I also made a beautiful In Colour Bookmark for everyone who attended my event. I may even have made one for myself! 😉

In Colour Bookmarks

On top of having door prizes, light refreshments, lots of laughter and fun, I also had a couple of make and takes! Because really, what’s a Stampin’ Up! event without getting inky fingers!

Aren’t these adorable?! For the first card we used the This Little Piggy Stamp Set, a little bit of Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper, and the Watercolour Pencils. The card base is Powder Pink Cardstock.

For the second card, we used the new Daisy Punch, with a little bit of Berry Burst and Powder Pink ink. The card base is Tranquil Tide Cardstock.

Set-up 2Thank You Card Sample

If this event sounds fun, just wait until you check out what I have planned! Be sure to take a look at my upcoming events and RSVP as soon as possible so you don’t miss out! All classes are held in my home studio in Hamilton, ON.

Thanks for visiting!

DIY Catalogue Survival Kits

Survival Kit Header

Gorgeous stamp sets, bundles, and suites, oh my!

Can you believe it?! The new 2017 – 2018 Annual Catalogue goes live TOMORROW (June 1)! I am so excited for you to see this beautiful book!

Now, I need you to prepare yourself for what’s about to happen, because once you get your hands on this book, magical things will start to happen.

All of the new beautiful items (as well as current favourites); will jump out at you like no other catalogue before! You will be enthralled in this book – you literally won’t be able to put it down! You’re eyes will sparkle just seeing all of the new pretty things!

Because of this, I suggest you prepare yourself with the ever so helpful Catalogue Survival Kit.

These cute and curated kits will help you to navigate the catalogue as you swoon over new product and start creating your shopping lists. I’ve put these specific kits together for my customers that are attending my Catalogue Launch Party, but I invite you to create a kit for yourself!

Here’s what you’ll need:

Survival Kit List

Putting these kits together is so simple! I made them with our new Wood Crate Framelits Dies (also a must-have if you ask me), so be sure to add it to your shopping list! It’s seriously so cute! Just imagine all of the favours, projects, and cards you can make with it (yes, cards too!).

Survival Kit-2

Survival Kit Open

I really hope you enjoy the new catalogue as much as I do. I think it might be our best one yet!

I’d also love to be your Demonstrator!
