Artisian Winner Project #1

Hello,

I finally get to share my exciting news with you!! Back in the summer, Dale H (President of our Canada office) sent out an email to all demonstrator's looking for auditions for the Team Canada Artisan. The Artisan winner's would then create special projects for Stampin' Up! Canada. At the last minute I decided to enter and was so excited when Dale called me in September to tell me that I was chosen as one of the Artisans!!

For the contest I had to submit 2 projects using the Build a Banner kit. One of the projects had to use only the accessories in the kit and the other was to use the kit with other products.

So for my first project which was only using the Build a Banner Kit, I chose to create a Fall Mini Album. I used the canvas banners in the kit for my pages, and added details by inked the background with the stencils. Then I added details to my pages by distressing with ink, and using twine to create bows.

I used our Circle Framelits to create a layer for my pictures from the canvas!

My other exciting news is my first assignment was to create 8 projects using a specific stamp set and designer series paper for Stampin' Up Saturdays on Scrapbook and Cards Today blog. Catherine from Scrapbook and Cards Today has chosen 5 of my projects to be showcase on their blog this Saturday. I'm so excited and can't wait to share them with all of you. I will be sharing a link with you on Saturday to the blog.

I have one more project to share with you using the Banner Kit and I will share that on Friday with you.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!


MDS- Birthday Layout

Hello,

While I was at the crop on the weekend, I had a chance to do some MDSing. I was looking for some inspiration so I headed to Pinterest to look for some scrapbook layout sketches. I came across one that I really liked and started to create!

The one thing that drew me to this sketch was the all the Hexagons and how it was filled with different colours of pattern paper.

Calendar Class 2013-012

I still need to do some journaling on this page, but I love how it turned out!! Don't forget to check out this week's new Digital downloads, and the new weekly deals. You can check them out here

Halloween Swap Card

Happy Monday!

We had a blast this past weekend at our annual Scrap and Crop Weekend Event. The room was filled with ambitious ladies that got right down to working on their project whether it was cards, layouts, 3D or craft show items to sell. They scrapped till the room closed which was midnight each night.

When I got yesterday afternoon, I had a hour and half nap, I guess I was tired!! I hope you can attend the next one in the Spring with us!!

Since Halloween is only a few days away, I thought I would share some Halloween Swaps with you. My swap card today is from my friend Catherine Sanders!

I love how she used Circles to highlight the candies on the card since that is what Halloween is all about.

MDS Chocolate Bar Holder

Hello,

A few weeks ago, a few of my friends and I got together for an afternoon of stampin! We decided it would be fun to do a Shoebox swap and dinner. My friend Marja hosted this month and did a fabulous job. When we sat down in her beautiful studio she had gift bags waiting for all us at our spots! Inside the gift bag was a chocolate bar decorated inside this beautiful holder. She created the label in My Digital Studio and then adhere it to card stock to create this fabulous gift!

Sorry for the glare on the photo, it wouldn't allow me to capture a close up photo!
