Tea Shoppe- Sneak Peek

Hello,

I finally had a chance to stamp yesterday and it felt good!! It's been a few weeks since I was in my stamp studio and I had to tide up before I could stamp. So I spend the morning, reorganizing and the afternoon stamping. But when I went to stamp, I think I loss my MOJO since it's been so long.  So I turned to some of my favourite blogs and look for inspiration.

While on Mary's blog, I saw this adorable card using the new Tea Shoppe stamp set. This set is a must have for all the tea lovers out there. You will be able to purchase this set in January when the new Occasions Mini starts.

MDS - 2012 Planner

Hello,

I have been enjoying MDSing the last few weeks. The My Digital Studio program is amazing and there is so much that you can do with it. I have been creating layouts for my albums, calendars for gifts and I even made a planner for me!!

I started with the 2012 daily planner template and then I customized each month to make it my own. I ended up switching up the designer series paper for my favourite Spice Cake!! I decided to stay with the colours that were in this paper: Soft Suede, Pool Party and Pear Pizzaz.

Sorry for the glare on the photo but the actually cover for this book is glossy!!

Snowman Purse!!

Hello,

Finally we got SNOW last night!! Yahoo! The storm started mid day yesterday and continue well into the night! The girls are so excited as they can't wait to play in it and make a fort and snowman!!

I spent most of yesterday cleaning my studio up, as we are finishing the basement. The girls and I with the help from grandma and papa moved things around and sort through items that we don't need anymore. It felt so good to get rid of those things. Now we are ready for Corrie to start sound proofing the rest of the basement!! We can't wait!!

I'm also in the process of getting my studio ready for the new Occasion Mini and Sale a Bration displays! I can't wait to show you those projects!!

I wanted to share one of the purses we made last month with my friend Laura. I have to say that this is my favourite one..who could resist this cute Snowman!!

MDS- Cup Magic

Happy Tuesday!

I can't believe that the holidays are all over..I really think that time needs to slow down so that we can enjoy it longer! It's always a busy few days!! Yesterday, we had fun celebrating with my parents, lots of laughs, good food and lots of fun memories!

Last night I had a chance to do a little MDSIng! I'm working on my holiday pages!! I'm not a big coffee drinker but I do love my Hot Chocolate. I was so excited to discover the Holiday Cups at Star Bucks along with a Peppermint Hot Chocolate. Oh...how I dream about this yummy tasty treat every day!! The best part is if you download their Cup Magic App, the characters on the cup came to life! Of course, I had to get a tasty drink each week, just so I could collect those cups!! LOL

Fall Album2 2011-020

I was inspired by a layout that I saw in the Nov Issue of Creating Keepsake and on my friend Mary Beth's blog!

I wonder what fun new digital downloads will be available today! You can check them out here.

You can order these supplies ONLINE through my store. You can order from the Holiday Mini, The Idea Book and Catalogue, the Clearance Rack and Digital Downloads. The best thing is you can shop 24/7 and the order ships right to you!! How fun is that!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!


Our Christmas Card!

Happy Boxing Day!

I hope you had a wonderful day yesterday with family and friends! We love this time of year as its so magical and full of surprises! The girls were so excited with the gifts that were under the tree, and the expresssion on their faces were priceless. I will be sharing photo's with you later this week!

We also celebrated Christmas with Corrie's side of the family yesterday with dinner and a gift exchange. The cousins enjoyed playing mini sticks, card games, road hockey and most of all just hanging out with each other! With so many of them at University, it was nice to spend time with them!

This year, I had fun creating our Christmas cards in My Digital Studio. I first started with a template and changed it up by adding these photos from Alaska. Then I add embellishments from the Savour the Season Kit.
