Road Hockey....

Happy Monday,

Our good friends invited us to their son's birthday over the long weekend. The girls were so excited to go spend the afternoon with their buddy. When these guys get together all they do is play hockey. They were so excited to put on their roller blades  and get down to a serious game of hockey. There sure were lots of body checking, shooting and laughing!

Of course, I was there with my camera to capture those moments. I had to create a MDS page to show you. The alphabet is done with the new Jersey alphabet.

Cheep Talk...Thank you card!


Was it ever a nice day here today! The sun was shining and it was gorgeous. I spent the day hanging out on my deck reading some magazines.

I wanted to share a card that we made last week in my calendar class. This class was fun! We decorated our new Polka Dot Album and made it in to Perpetual Calendar using the Sunny Day Scrappin Kit. I wanted to show the ladies that they would have leftover supplies to make other cards with.

The Sunny Day Scrappin Kit coordinates with the Cheep Talk stamp set.


Recipe: Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White card stock, Cheep Talk stamp set, Tempting Turquoise, Black and Pumpkin Pie ink, Pumpkin Pie ribbon, 1 3/8" and 1 1/4" Square Punch, and Scallop Border Punch.

Enjoy the rest of your evening,

On a Pedestal


I hope you are having a great day!! It's been a busy one with running errands. Last night, I hosted an Opportunity night. I have to tell you a funny story. About 10 minutes before my guest arrived, our power went out. I had to think fast because it was way to dark downstairs for the ladies. So we moved everything to the kitchen table, and enjoyed our evening. Then as everyone was leaving, the power came back on. Now that is too funny! LOL  I would like to say a Big Thank You to all the ladies that came out to learn about the Opportunity that Stampin' Up offers. If you would like to learn more about being a demonstrator, I would love to answer any questions that you might have.

I wanted to show them that you can get lots of inspiration from the monthly Stampin' Success magazine that Demonstrators get. I showed them how to do the KISS Technique using the stamp set On a Pedestal. This is one of the stamp set in the Starter Kit.

We used the Itty Bitty Background stamp set and inked it up in Rose Red. Then we coloured the cake with a Chocolate Chip marker and a Pretty in Pink marker. Then I KISS the two stamp set together and now we have cherry ice cream! We also added Crystal Effects to the cake to make it more real looking.


Recipe: Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Pretty in Pink and Whisper White card stock, Chocolate Chip Ribbon, Close to Cocoa and Rose Red ink, Chocolate Chip, Real Red and Pretty in Pink marker, Crystal Effects, Polka Dot Impression folder, Big Shot Machine, and Sweet Scoops stamp set.

Only 2 more days before the Last Chance List comes out. Can't wait to see what's on it!!

Enjoy the rest of you day!!

Upside down Ice Cream Cone


I wanted to share with another card that we will be making at the fundraiser. We are raising money to help support Kaitlyn's Hope! Kaitlyn is the niece of a good friend and she was just diagnosed with a Rare Heart Condition. You can read all the details here.

I wanted to make a fun card. So I decided to turn the ice cream scoop upside down. Then I added the cone and a smile on his face!! The button just added that extra detail at the top of his hat.

Sorry for not posting yesterday. I spend the day with my family outside. We did some gardening, went for a bike ride and even went for some yummy ice cream. It sure was nice having that extra day off! The weather here was gorgeous..high 20 with humidity which makes it feel like 33.

I wanted to share with you the another card that we made in my technique club. This card focus on Watercolouring with an Aqua Painter. First, we stamped our flower in Staz-on ink onto Watercolour Paper.

We started off with Pretty in Pink ink, then added some Regal Rose and finally Rose Red ink to the flower. After we were done watercolouring, we cut them up at various petals and did some Paper Tole.

Track and Field


What a gorgeous day we had here! It's sunny and it's hot!

I have been inspired by my good friend Heather to start using My Digital Studio software more. I find these days I don't have time to do the traditional scrapbooking but I still want to preserve those memories. So I find that this is the best way to capture those memories right now. I'm currently working on an album for 2009 and 2010.

The page that I want to share with you today is about Emily participating in Track and Field. It's not her favourite school activity but she went out with a smile and completely the events that day.

The colours that I used are Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive and Real Red.

So what do you think?? I'm really pleased with how this turned out!!

Enjoy the rest of your evening,

Upsy Daisy


Well, it's a raining day here so far. Let's hope that the sun comes out later in the day! I wanted to share with you a project that we made in our Stamper's 6 class last night.

The ladies wanted to use an older stamp set, so I dug out Upsy Daisy. When I use this stamp set, I always like to stamp off with it so that it gives that look of 2 flowers in the distance. My friend Michelle was here last night, and she suggested that we add glitter to the tops of the flowers. Wow....does it ever look cool!! I will take another picture and show you that card later. Thanks for the idea Michelle!!!

My inspiration for this card came from one I saw on Stampin Connection. We stamped the Upsy Daisy in Pretty in Pink and they we add a little bit of colour to the top of the image with a Melon Mambo marker. This creates the two tones colours.


Recipe: Whisper White, Melon Mambo, and Black card stock, Button Latte buttons, Linen Thread, Black Ribbon, Upsy Daisy, Melon Mambo Marker, Pretty in Pink ink, Razzleberry Lemonade D.S.P, Tiny Tags stamp set, and Medium Jewelery Punch.

Have a great day,

King of the Grill

Happy Friday!!

Yahoo, it's the Victoria long weekend for us here in Canada. Which means an extra day to spend with my family. We are looking forward to hanging out on our deck with friends!!

I wanted to share with you the card that we made last night in my Technique club. The ladies want to learn all about Watercolouring. I showed them how to watercolour with a blender pen and how to watercolour with an aqua painter.

The King of the Grill stamp set is great for watercolouring. We used the new Travel Journey designer series paper for this card. I really like the colour combo of Garden Green, Night of Navy and Bashful Blue.
