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!

The new 2017 – 2018 Stampin’ Up! Catalogue is all set to launch on June 1st, so I thought I’d take the opportunity to tell you all about my Catalogue Launch Party!
If you’re local to the Hamilton, ON area, then I invite you to join me for an evening of fun!
This is my first-ever launch party, and I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am! I have so many great things planned and I am beyond excited to show you all the new items Stampin’ Up! has to offer! If you haven’t seen any yet, CLICK HERE, to get a few sneak peek at the new Birthday Delivery Bundle. There are also a few new projects posted on my Instagram, so be sure to check it out and follow.
Anyway, back to the launch party! This drop-in style event will be filled with fun, laughter, and crafting. Here are just a few of things I have planned for you:
Each person will get a copy of the brand new catalogue (the best part)!
Each person will get a special gift (or two) from me because I am so thankful that you can attend.
Everyone will get to make one or two make-and-takes featuring new products.
There will also be door prizes, light refreshments, and more!
Plus, each person who places an order valued at $45 or more (before taxes and shipping) from the new catalogue at the launch party, will be entered to win a $30 shopping spree on me!
Doesn’t this sound fun! Be sure to RSVP by May 29th via the Facebook event page.
If you have any questions about the event, please leave a comment below or contact me directly.
Note that the event address will only be sent to those who have RSVP’d via the Facebook event page or to those who have RSVP’d with me directly.
Now that I’ve posted my first blog post, I thought I’d share a few recent projects I’ve completed before going head on into video tutorials, etc.
Making cards has become a passion of mine so I’m so thankful I get to share them with my audience. Let me know what you think by commenting below!
Birthday Florals One of my favourite stamp sets from Sale-A-Bration is the What I Love photopolymer stamps. The florals are just so versatile that they can really be used for any card. For this particular card, I used the Island Indigo ink pad with matching paper, and the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Butterfly Basics Clear-Mount Stamp Set (my personal favourite birthday sentiment!). I then added some rhinestones and a touch of Wink of Stella to the flowers, and here we are!
The fold is also different from your standard card so I think it really make this one stand out.
So Loved This is a great card for beginners. I used Whisper White cardstock, along with a patterned paper from our Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack that can be found on Page 17 in our 2016 Occasions catalogue. The floral stamp is from the For the New Two rubber stamp set in our 2015 – 2016 Annual catalogue and the sentiment stamp is from the Watercolour Wishes photopolymer stamp set. The ink colours used are Basic Black and Blushing Bride.
Butterfly Love This card is also great for beginners, and it involves one of my favourite tools – the Big Shot! The cardstock used is Island Indigo and Whisper White (which is embossed using the Lovely Lace embossing folder). I also used matching ribbon and the Butterflies Thinlits.
Welcome to my blog – I’m so happy that you’re here!
With this blog, I will be sharing my paper crafting and DIY projects while highlighting some of my favourite products from Stampin’ Up! I really just love everything about stamping/crafting/DIY, so I hope my work inspires you and sparks your inner creative genius.
If you’re new to stamping, that’s OK too! Some of the projects I post will be for complete crafting virgins. I can provide you with tips, tools, and techniques to help get you started. Stay tuned for some upcoming video tutorials and other projects that you’ll be able to complete with just a few supplies.
Hope to see you soon!
