Butterfly Prints


I have to admit that I have had this stamp set since July and this is the first time that I used it. This was one of the FREE stamps that I picked with my Sale A Bration Rewards.

My colours for my card was totally inspired from the Colour Coach. If you don't have this amazing tool, I suggest that you purchase it.  You just pick your colour and then it lists either a creative creation or a sweet set. The possibilities are endless with this handy tool!

So my colour combo is Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie. Don't you just love those colours...reminds me of my favourite season FALL!!


Supplies: Early Espresso, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, and Daffodil Delight card stock, Butterfly Prints stamp set, Ribbon Border Punch, Bright Designer Series Paper, Early Espresso and Pumpkin Pie ink and a Corner Rounder punch.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

Falling Leaves


This is my favourite time of year! I love everything that fall has to picking, leaves turning colours and cooler weather. The weather around here has been cooler the last few days. Gotta love it!!

I love how this card turned out. The new Elegant Lines Impression Folder is gorgeous... I really think that the embossing on these folders are deeper.  I thougth I would use one of my old favourite stamp set called Falling Leaves.

Happy Monday!!

Last night, I had a chance to create some more layouts for my album in My Digital Studio. I'm all most ready to submit my album. I can't wait to see the finish project.

This was a layout challenge from Heather. I love the clean and simple look of it!

One day, I look out our patio doors, to see Alison dancing and singing on the deck. I ran to grab my camera so that I could capture this moment.

Joyful Season Letterpress


Have you seen the new Letterpress dies in the Holiday Mini? These dies are so much fun to use. I heard the best way to use them is with Craft Ink, Watercolour paper and sponges daubers. I'm going to also try it with classic ink to see how that works.

For my card today, I used the new Joyful Season Letterpress die along with Real Red Craft Ink and Watercolour paper. I love how it turned out. It's so Festive!!


Recipe: Baja Breeze and Real Red card stock, Candy Cane Designer Series Paper, Joyful Season Letterpress die, Big Shot Machine, Watercolour Paper, Real Red Satin Ribbon, and Real Red Craft Ink.

Have a great day,

Right now when you join the Stampin' Up Family, you will get this gorgeous Greenhouse Gala Tote for FREE (A value of $49.99) with the purchase of a Starter Kit. You can choose from either the Standard or the Digital Kit. Plus if you join my team, you can choose a stamp set from the Holiday Mini as my way of saying Thank you!!!


I have been a demonstrator for over 3 years now. I can't imagine life without Stampin' Up! The one thing that I love most about being a demonstrator is all the friendships that I have made. I can't believe that a little paper, ink and stamps brought us together. These ladies are part of my family now, and I love when they share their life and paper crafting with me.

Stampin' Up! is one amazing company to work for. They care about each and every person that is part of the Stampin' Up! family. They listen to what we have to say and they value our input! Now, how many company's do that?? Plus they support all kinds of demonstrator's from those that want a discount on their product, to the one that want to make a little extra income and to ones that make a full time career out of it.

If you have ever thought about being a demonstrator, I would love for you to join our Stamp2Cre8 team. I'm excited to hear from you and can't wait to share this wonderful opportunity with you!!!

Have a great day!!
