It's Wild Birthday Card

Hello,

Wowzers, that was a crazy and wild winter storm that we had last night. First it started out as snow around 3:30 and then it switch to freezing rain around suppertime. The freezing rain continue until about 2 am this morning. It looks like a frozen winter wonderland outside!!

I was going through my pictures and notice that I didn't share a few with you. My project today is one that I made a few months ago using the It's Wild stamp set and the Watercolour Words stamp set.

The It's Wild stamp set is a background stamp set. These big background stamps come in either wood or clear. Personally I prefer the wood mount for my background stamps!!

Time to Chill with Snow Place

Happy Monday!!

I hope that you had a wonderful holiday celebrating with your family and friends. One of the real joys of the holiday season is the opportunity to gather with loved ones, create memories and appreciate the simple pleasure of life.

Now that the hustle and bustle is over it's time to chill and enjoy what is left of 2015. I have to say that this year has been interesting and I'm looking forward to 2016 and what it has to offer!!

We have been doing a lot of chillin' this past few days with watching lots of movies and of course the World Junior's game!! This is one of our highlights of the holiday season!! And I have been sneaking into my studio to play with new goodies. I have lots of projects to share with you, I just need a sunny day so I can take pictures.

My project today is a CASE from the Holiday Catalogue. As soon as I saw it, I knew that I had to recreate it for my displays in my studio!!

Jingle All the Way

Hello,

I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas and that Santa was good to you!! We had a fabulous day that was filled with lots of fun memories. One of my favourite parts is watching the girls open their presents and watching their reactions as they discover what was inside it!! These moments are priceless!!

I have another card to share with you from our technique class. This was the other card that we made with the Salt Technique. I found this card on pinterest and fell in love with it and knew that I had to CASE it!!

Twas the Night Before Christmas....

Hello,

It's finally here...Christmas Eve! I can't believe that we are only hours away from one of the most magical day in the year!! We are already and I can't wait to spend the next few days with my family and friends!!

My project today is a CASE from my bestie out west!! When I saw this card on Allison's blog, I knew that I had to recreate it for my Technique Class this month. The ladies loved learning a different way of doing the Salt Technique which creates amazing backgrounds. Thanks for the inspiration Allison!!

IMG_4212

I think my favourite part about this card is the skyline!! Wondering where the buildings are from? You can find them in the Calling all Heroes stamp set.

Santa is flying through the town on his way to deliver Christmas cheer to everyone around the world!! The Santa image is from the Cozy Christmas stamp set. Did you notice the fun background....the is done using the Salt Technique. So cool and simply easy to do!!

Salt Technique Instructions:

Using the clear block size of your choice, apply ink to the
block by dabbing the ink pad onto the block. Be sure to work
from lightest to darkest ( Lost Lagoon, Island Indigo and Night of Navy)
Spritz the block several times with water. “Stamp” block onto
watercolour paper. Before the paper becomes dry, sprinkle
some salt on the paper and spritz paper with water.
Allow to dry ( you can use a heat tool to speed up this process).
Brush off sale and embellish as desired.

 

From my family to yours, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!! I wish you a safe and happy holiday with your family and friends!!

Happy Stampin'

 


Cookie Gift Exchange

Hello,

A few weeks ago, my friend Tammy asked me to join her Cookie exchange and I was so excited I had to say "Yes." I have not done a cookie exchanges in a few year, and I love baking so I thought it would be fun to do. I love that you come home with a variety of yummy goodies.

For this cookie exchange, I found a new recipe on Pinterest to try out called "Santa's Cookies". They had my favourite ingredient in them...M&M's.

IMG_4073

When I was getting ready to package them up, I knew that I wanted a fun way to present them. I knew that I had a few of the Petite Cafe Gifts Bags and thought they would be fun to dress up for the holidays!

 

IMG_4079

I used the music notes pattern from the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper to create my banner in the background. Then using the Lot's of Framelits and Big Shot, I cut out a label in the Kraft Corrugated Paper and smaller label in Very Vanilla card stock. I stamped my greeting from Cozy Christmas in Mossy Meadow onto my very vanilla label and adhere it to my corrugated card stock.

IMG_4080

I embellished my tag with the Reindeer Clip and added a red nose using the Home for Christmas Enamel Dots. Then I closed the bag with our clothespin decorated in the stripe pattern from the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper along with a Pom-Pom ribbon.

So do you love to bake?  What is your favourite holiday recipe that you make every year? I would love to know as I'm always on the look out for new ones to add to my collection!!

Peaceful Pines CASE

Happy Monday!!

I was going through my pictures and realized I have a few that I didn't share with you yet. One of my favourite things to do is recreate the samples in our catalogues. The concept Artists at Stampin' Up! does a fabulous job creating these samples to showcase the product and their samples are always over the top. One thing on my bucket list is to spend a day with this team and see how they create the samples for the catalogues and process behind creating our product, oh what a fun day that will be!! I will keep dreaming until the day happens....

My project today is one that I CASE from the Holiday Catalogue ( page 16) featuring the Perfect Pines stamp set and matching framelits. One thing that I notice these days is watercolouring is HUGE and very trendy. I had to admit, this is something I don't do very often, but would love to learn more and starting adding this to my projects!

Cc19

I think this was one of my favourite cards that I made this year. I love all the extra details and the soft watercolouring shown behind the trees!! Thanks Stampin' Up! for the inspiration!!

Snowflake Card

Hello,

Yahoo, it's snowing and it's just feels more like the festival season!! I don't think we are going to get enough to cover the ground or to have a white Christmas but it sure is pretty to look at while I sip on some yummy hot chocolate!!

All these snowflakes made me think of this card that I made a few weeks ago. It used the snowflakes from the Holly Jolly Greeting stamp set.

DSC_0215 copy

This stamp set is one of those sets that you want to have in your collection. It has 16 different greeting that you can mix and match for you cards. Plus you can even some of these greeting after the holidays on your everyday cards!


Plus it coordinates with the Christmas Greeting Thinlits dies. These dies are perfect for your cards, scrapbook pages or for your Project Life albums!

Snow Place Gift Card Holder

Happy Friday!!

Wow, one week today and we will be celebrating with our family and friends this joyous season!! I can't wait, it's going to be so much fun!! Are you ready or do you still have shopping to do? I can help you with that!!

What would be more fun that shopping out of the Annual or Occasional Catalogue with someone else money!? I know this would be my favorite gift! I can create you a gift certificate like the one below for you to give to your favourite crafter on your list! These gift certificates can be used towards classes or product!

IMG_3541

My inspiration for my gift card holder came from my friend Patty. Patty shared a few weeks ago on her blog a gift card holder that she made that was a double card holder. I need a full size gift holder, so I had fun creating this Frosty gift certificate holder.

IMG_3536

I had to use my favourite snowman from the Snow Place Bundle. And the best part is that this bundle is carrying over into the Occasional catalogue which means you will be seeing lots of my frosty friend in the New Year!

IMG_3540

If you would like to purchase a gift certificate, you can email me here. You can either pick it up or I can mail it to you. If we don't have enough time for it to be mailed, I can send you one that you can print off.
