Last Day of Summer Mini


Well, today is the last day that you can order from the Summer Mini? After today, most of these products will be gone for good. I have to say that I'm going to miss the Nautical Suite! This suite did not carry over into the new Idea Book and Catalogue which is so sad as it's a great product line to have on hand for all men in our lives!

Also today is the last day for the Buy 3 Get 1 Free Promotion, now is the time to stock up on your Designer Series Paper for the holidays. Don't forget you can also order the Nautical paper in this promotion.

I will be placing an order tonight at 9 pm if you would like to add those last minute items from the Summer Mini or take part in the Buy 3 Get 1 promotion.

Bat Treat Holder


I'm excited to share today project with you as it was made by Alison. She saw this bat on Shelli's blog and had to recreate it as she loved it so much!! She knew that the bat was from the Petal Cone die and the wings were from the Perfect Pennant die. Once she cut them out she was off to create!

I love how she used Glimmer Brads for the eyes!! She even took the time to fill it with chocolate decorated using the new It's an Occasion stamp set.

MDS- Ice Cream Page


Last night was the perfect night for a family drive to our favourite ice cream place! We love visiting Shaw's Ice Cream in St. Thomas. I feel bad as I don't have a lot of pictures from this summer as my camera was in getting fixed, so now that it's back I have to make up for those missed photo opportunities!! So, I decided to capture our favourite place and share it with you in a MDS page.

The background was a challenge from my friend Heather. She gave us the background, the banner and the top note off to the side.

I decided to add to it by using the following products:

- Grunge Embellishments ( the frame box around my photos)

- Smitten Alphabet Punch

- Sweet Details Alphabet Brush Set

- Just Perfect Alphabet Brush Set

Scaredy Cat Frame


What a night we had!! The girls and I were at Heather's house for a class when we had storm approach us. This was no normal summer storm, this was a storm that was producing a tornado. Just about when we were ready to leave, it started..the rain, the lightening and thunder. So all of us decided to stay and chat a little longer. After about hour, we were able to go home. Thanks Heather for the fun night!!

Remember me telling you that I was rearranging my studio and working on displays. I finished my Halloween, and Fall one so far. Now on to Christmas!!

I thought, I would show you one of my Halloween Displays. I ordered the Scaredy Cat Decor Elements and made this super fun Frame. The frame was a CASE from the Frightful Sight Suite in the Idea Book and Catalogue. You can find it on page 22.

Along with my frame, I put a Halloween Candy Wrapper Box and the fun Lollipop Flowers!!

Gently Falling - Black Magic Technique


I love showing my customers new ways to use product that they have on hand! This month for Technique Club, the ladies learned how to do Black Magic. This is an old stand by technique, but I think I showed the ladies a new way of doing it.

First, you stamp your image in White Craft Ink onto Black card stock and set the ink with a heat tool gun. Now using our Watercolour Pencils you are going to colour in the image. Now if using a 2 step stamp, you are going to stamp the image in White craft ink and heat set again. Voila, you have Black Magic.

On my projects today, I used a new stamp set from the Holiday Mini called Gently Falling!! This is a must on your Holiday Wishlist!!

DSC_0022 copy

Recipe: Black, Cajun Craze, Old Olive and Whisper White card stock, Cajun Craze DSP, Watercolour Pencils, White Craft Ink, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Tool Gun, Gently Falling stamp set, Perfectly Penned Stamp set, and Cajun Craze Craft Ink.

One of the things that I have been doing more is embossing my titles. I stamped my image in Cajun Craze Craft Ink, and then sprinkled on Clear Embossing Powder and then heat embossed it!! I love the finally results!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

Sail Away.....

Happy Tuesday!!

I don't know about you but Summer is just sailing by!! I can't believe that we only have 2 more weeks left till school starts and only a few more weeks till the Summer Mini is done! There are lots of fabulous products that will be gone for good once August 31st comes. One of my favourite line is the Nautical Suite and I will miss it for sure. Time to stock up on the Nautical DSP!!

I wanted to show you one of the cards that we made last week in my All Occasions Stamp a Stack. I used the stamp called Sail Away and the best thing is that it's only $11.95. I knew that I wanted to create my card around the Well Worn DSP. The only thing that I love about Stampin' Up is everything coordinates. So I picked the colours that were in the DSP and created by card from there.

OMG, have you seen the new Stripe folder for the Big Shot!! This new folder is a must in your supplies!!
