I hope all the mom’s out there had a great Mother’s Day this past weekend! My day was wonderful! We spent time at the zoo, I took a nap, and of course I got to spend time with my boys’. A perfect day!
Today I have something super exciting to share with you! I have decided to do my first-ever Designer Series Paper Share! I’m so excited!
Seriously, once you see the new catalogue on June 1st, you’re going to want it all, and this is the perfect way to get it!
I’ll purchase all Designer Series Paper, and you pay a fraction of the price to get a little bit of everything. I will package up all your items in labelled bags, so you know exactly what colours and items are in each bag.
Here’s how it works:
Crafters sign up for the share, with each group consisting of 6 people. Once the catalogue goes live on June 1 and the group is full, I will invoice you and then place the order. When the items arrive, I will sort them, divide them, cut them into 6×6″ pieces, and bag and label them. You can pick them up at my place in Hamilton, ON or for a $15 fee, I can mail the share out to you. I will mail them in a Priority Post box so that it gets to you a quickly as possible and I will be able to track the parcel.
What you get:
120 pieces of Designer Series Paper, each piece is 6×6″
It’s time for another Global Design Project (GDP136) Challenge and this time we are CASEing the Designer! In the card making world you can find inspiration from so many different people and I am always in awe of some of the creations I see. The designer we are CASEing this time is fellow Canadian and Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Allison Okamitsu. Allison is one of the most talented Demonstrators out there. Her cards are always bright and fun, and her designs are always beyond gorgeous. I am so excited we are CASEing her for this challenge! Here is my card:
When we CASE (Copy and Share Everything or Copy and Selectively Edit), we can copy the design exactly or choose to take elements of the card and make them our own. Here is Allison’s card that is the inspiration for this weeks challenge.
Isn’t her card just adorable? In this case, I chose to go with Allison’s layout with the four images on the top and the sentiment on the bottom.
For my card I used one of my favourite stamp sets, Painted Harvest, as well as a new favourite; the brand new Rooted In Nature Stamp Set that will be available in the new 2018/2019 Annual Catalogue coming out on June 1st.
I do hope you liked this card! Be sure to subscribe to my blog and newsletter by clicking the link on the right-hand side of this page! You can also catch me over on YouTube, where I share video tutorials and more.
Happy Weekend, friends! Thank you for joining me today. Despite the crazy wind storm we had on Friday (seriously, I thought my car was going to blow over on the highway!), we have been having some pretty good weather this past week. I think Spring is finally here! I even spent four hours in the garden yesterday doing some clean up and prepping for new flowers!
This makes me super excited to show you this card that I created with the brand new In Every Season Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up! I definitely had Spring in mind when I created it and just love how it turned out. The sentiment is also from a new stamp set (Rooted in Nature – sneak peek coming soon!).
Both of these gorgeous sets will be available in the new 2018 – 2019 Annual Catalogue that is coming on June 1st. That is less than a month away!
*Cue Happy Dance*
You’ll notice that I used many different floral stamps on this one including Primrose, Violets, and Carnations. So pretty, right?
In total there are 12 different flowers included in the stamp set which you can see below. As you can tell, the possibilities are endless this one. For this card in particular, I used Pacific Point Card Stock and ink, and used a combination of Stampin’ Write Markers and Blends (will be available soon), to colour in the flowers.
Please feel free to save the guide below to use as a reference when making your own creations with this set.
As always, you can shop with me directly in my online Canadian Store here. If you use this months Hostess Code you can even earn my Stampin’ Girl Rewards!
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope to see you back here again soon!
Today I have the cutest card to show you featuring a BRAND NEW stamp set from Stampin’ Up! This cute Kangaroo and baby Koala are from the new Animal Outing Stamp Set that will be in the new 2018/2019 Annual Catalogue! The catalogue and set, along with some other amazing new products will be available on June 1st!
Do you know how soon that is?! It’s only one month away!
I am so excited about the new catalogue and can already tell you that you will absolutely love it. New stamps, suites, kits, and embellishments, oh my!
You may even notice something else that is new on this card, and that is our new Pearlized Doilies. These are beautiful new doilies that have a pearl finish on one side, and white on the other. I think these are going to be so versatile and they really can be used for any project. They just add that little extra something, you know?
If you want to get a copy of the new catalogue, as well as a chance to use some brand new product, be sure to RSVP to my Catalogue Launch Party on Friday, June 8th. You can view full details on my Events page, or on Facebook!
Stayed tuned for more new product samples on my blog. I’m so excited to share them items with you!
We’re in the middle of an April ice storm here in Hamilton…what the heck?! I am so ready for Spring! BUT, being stuck inside has it’s advantages as I was able to film and edit my latest video all in one day! Winning!
Today’s card is so pretty, isn’t it? Not only does it have a little bling, but I made it using absolutely NO stamping! I do love to stamp, but sometimes you just gotta change it up, you know?
For this card the main items used are the Eclectic Layers Thinlit Dies and the Celebrate you Thinlits (coming out June 1st). A full list of supplies used for this card is located at the end of this blog post.
The spice of life is variety, and that’s especially true in the world of color. Stampin’ Up! makes a point to keep an eye on color trends across different markets and industries. When they see changes happening, they review their color spectrum to ensure that they remain consistently on top of the trends. This brings us to the 2018 Color Revamp! In order to keep bringing you the most current and on trend colours, they decided it was time to give their color collections a makeover.
You may have noticed from the Retiring Lists that many colours are going away. While I am sad to see some of my favourite colours go (goodbye my beloved Island Indigo), I am equally excited to see some returning favourites, as well as some brand new colours!
First, let’s take a look at the RETIRING COLOURS. They are below.
Second, let’s new at NEW colours. Notice any returning favourites?!
Next, let’s look at the FULL colour Reveal, including new Colour Collections.
Aren’t these colours delicious?! I am very excited about Merry Merlot, Mango Melody, Gorgeous Grape, and Balmy Blue! Oh, and did you see that Mint Macaron is coming back?! YES!
So, what do you think about these changes? I’d love to hear your feedback in the comment section of this blog post. I am absolutely excited about this and can just imagine all of the fun stamping we can have with these colours.
There is another change coming (I know, it’s a lot to take in), but the ink pads are also changing and I’ll post about those soon! And trust me, it is good!
When the catalogue goes live on June 1st, I’ll also have some colour guides available for my customers.
Be sure to sign up for my newsletter if you’re not already on my list!
Thanks for joining me today! Happy Stamping!

Every year Stampin’ Up! comes out with a list of retiring products to make room for brand new items! While it is exciting, it’s always sad to say goodbye to some of our favourites! From now until May 31st is your chance to get these products (some only while supplies last) before they are gone forever!
Please take a look at the lists below to see what is retiring:
I decided to enter the Global Design Project Challenge #123 at the last minute, and I’m super excited to show you what I came up with! I’ve done the challenge before, but I admit, it’s been a while!
This challenge (#GDP123) is all about new beginnings, and I think this is something we can all relate to. Whether it’s a new job, you’re a new Stampin’ Up! Demo (or want to be!), retirement, wedding…the list can go on! We’ve all started anew at one point or other, so what a perfect theme!
For this particular card, I had two things in mind; retirement and/or new job. I think it suits either occasion as its bright, cheery, and really shows excitement!
The layout of the card is cased from the lovely Lauren Alarid, who is a fellow demonstrator and a 2018 Artisan Design Team Member. Her cards are always so lovely, but the layout in which this one is based, is probably one of my faves!
