Kinda Eclectic Make and Take

Hello,

During the Inspire,Create,Share 2014 Convention, we have the chance to participate in make and takes session. Each session focuses on a different stamp set that was included in our Convention Bag. I usually don't do make and takes at the convention as I would rather do them at home and not have to worry about them getting squished on the way home in the suitcase.

I finally had some time the other day to work on the Make and Takes packs using the new Kinda Eclectic. I have to tell you that it's one of my TOP 10 stamp set in the Annual Catalogue. This is a must in your collection as you can use it for some many different occasions!!

I think the reason I love this set so much is for the sunburst and that you can use if for random stamping!! I can't wait to share with you how I use this stamp for a Christmas card. So excited tonight is our first night of our Christmas club...I know Christmas in July...but it's a great way to get a jump start on your cards!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

Star CASE

Hello,

Awhile back while blog surfing, I'm came across this beautiful card that was created by my sweet talented friend Alanna. As soon as I saw it, I knew that I had to recreate it for my club ladies! Thanks for the inspiration Alanna!!

I love the cool tip of using the Star Framelits to cut out a star opening on the front of your card, and then add some designer series paper behind it. Brilliant!!

Crop Goodies

Hello,

We are having a blast here at our all day crop. It's a smaller group this year but the ladies are loving the extra space!! LOL They are all busy working on their projects while sharing stories with each other! It's makes my heart happy to hear their stories and listen to them chat with new friends. One of the reason why I love my job!!

At each of their spots, there was a little welcome gift for them. My good friend Linda shared this idea for a water bottle holder. I created them with my favourite Blackberry Bliss card stock and stamped it with the stunning images from Kinda Ecletic.

I also had gave them each a welcome gift for coming to the crop. I thought these products might come in hand while they were working today.

Sea Street Shaker Card

Happy Friday,

It's been a busy morning of running errands and I finally sat down for a few minutes to post to my blog. Just before I left for convention, I really wanted to create a shaker card and I thought the Sea Street stamp set was perfect for it. I paired it with the Maritime Designer Series Paper.

I forget how easy it is to create shaker cards when you are using the Shaker Frames. These frames are dimensional windows that have double sided adhesives that coordinate with our punches. You just need to use window sheets to create the cover for the front of the shaker box. Shaker frames

I added the new Incolour sequins inside my shaker frame along with a crab from the Sea Street stamp set!

Kinda Eclectic

Hello,

It's been a fun morning of stamping with my friends at our first Tuesday Coffee and Cards class. The ladies had a blast stamping with friends, sipping on some coffee and enjoyed some yummy homemade banana bread!! The excited part, most of them signed up for next week's class. Yahooo..can't wait to stamp with them again!!

One of my favourite things about Convention is seeing all the creative projects on the displays boards. This year Display board stampers were asked to make 24 projects using the Make and Take stamp sets that we received in our kits.

I spent a few hours taking photo's of projects and I can't wait to use them for inspiration for upcoming classes and clubs!! I thought that you might want to see some of those display boards also.

These 3 display boards feature the beautiful stamp set called Kinda Eclectic.
