Easter Framelit Card

Hello Stampers!

Happy Monday!! Not sure what the weather is like your way, but it's cold, rainy and windy here. It's a good day to stay home and stamp!! Yes, I actually get to do this today as we are off for Easter Monday!!

I wanted to share another card that we made last week in our Framelit Frenzy class. The idea behind the Framelit Frenzy class is to show you how you can use your framelits as stencils! Yes, you read that correctly...stencils!! My card today was inspired by one that my friend Ronda shared with us!!

 

DSC_0022 copy

On this project, we used the smallest oval framelit, and the big shot machine. We cut out a template from a piece of cardboard. We actually just used the cardboard from the Designer Series Paper. My cardboard pieces are 4 by 4. I like to put mine on a ring, so that you can easily see and use them. I also write the name of the framelit on the back of the cardboard, so I know where that stencil came from.

DSC_0019 copy

Using the oval stencil, I laid the template on my piece of whisper white card stock. Then using sponges and my ink, I coloured in my oval stencil to create these two Easter eggs!

DSC_0020 copy

The colours that I used were So Saffron and Wisteria Wonder. Shocking...I know this was probably the first time, I used these colours in a long time. I have spring on my mind and hoping that by creating spring projects, Mother Nature will give us some warm weather!! To finish off the card, we used the Gold Wink of Stella to add some flecks!!

DSC_0021 copy

Of course, we had to decorate the inside of the card! I used the stencil to create a bunch of eggs at the bottom!! Speaking of all those eggs, I think I might have to go have some chocolate eggs that the bunny left for me. YUMMY!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!!


Happy Easter!!

Hello Stampers!!

Happy Easter!! I hope you are having a wonderful day with your family and friends!! We are have a nice quiet day at home. I just finished making my grandma's famous carrot cake and looking forward to our yummy Easter dinner. We actually did dinner here on Friday for the Granger's. There was 23 of us and it was a wonderful afternoon of eating, playing games, laughing and most of just spending time with everyone!!

My project today is one that I CASE from my friend Ronda!! When I saw this card, I knew it would be perfect for my upcoming class that I had a few week's ago!

DSC_0003 copy

My favourite part on this card is the fringe scissors. I always forget about these fun scissors as when you cut with them, they make the paper look like grass!!

DSC_0004 copy

The another cute factor on this card is the Chick!! This chick reminds me of the Easter peeps that come out at this time of year!! You can find this chick as part of the stamp set called "Honeycomb Happiness" And the best part is that you can earn this stamp set for FREE with you place a $60 order during the Sale a Bration promotion. You only have 4 days left to take advantage of amazing promotion!!

Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!!

 


Flowering Fields- Only 5 days left of Sale-a-Bration

Hello,

Can you believe that there is only 5 days left of this year's Sale a Bration?? Where did those 3 months go? They just flew by!! As I said " You only have 5 days left to take advantage of the Sale a Bration Promotion and earn a your FREE products!"

I'm sharing one of my favourite stamp set from the Sale a Bration flyer. I'm not really a flower person, but I do love this stamp set called "Flowering Fields{!! I decided to create a card set using this stamp set and the retiring Incolours that will be leaving us at the end of May.

DSC_0073 copy
I paired the Retiring Incolour with the matching designer series paper. If you are looking to match your paper with your ink, I would recommend investing in the designer series paper pack as you would also have a pattern paper to match your ink and card stock!!

There are a few colours that I will miss from this collection and really hope that Stampin' Up! will add them into our regular card collection!! Those colours are: Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon and Mossy Meadows.

Here are each of the cards close up. My favourite colour is Blackberry, I love how rich this colour is!! I love it paired with Crumb Cake!!

DSC_0070 copy

Next up is Lost Lagoon! This colour is great for masculine cards!

DSC_0065 copy

Next is Tangelo Twist! I love how bright and cheery this card is!

DSC_0071 copy

Next is Hello Honey! This colour is great for flowers!

DSC_0066 copy

And last is Mossy Meadows. This is another colour that I will miss as it's a gorgeous green for Holiday season!

DSC_0067 copy

If you have any of the 2014-206 incolours, I would suggest protecting your investment. Meaning, check to make sure you have re-inkers for your inkpads, that you are stock up on your markers, card stock, ribbon and don't forget your designer series paper!! Last year, when Stampin' Up! announced the Last Chance List, the retiring colours were SOLD out in 20 mins!!

If you wish to place an order, and save on some shipping, I have an order going into tomorrow night. Message by 8pm and I will add you to my order.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

High Five Treat Holder

Happy Monday!!

I hope you had a great day! It was a sad one around here as we all headed back to work and school after our week off. There was a lot of "do I have to go today, can't I stay home" conversations this morning! The good thing is it's a short week and we only have 3 more days left!! LOL

My project today is one that I CASE from Sara Douglass, our Interim CEO at Stampin' Up! Sara showed us this fabulous project on her Facebook page. She shared with us that she had made these to hand out to employees after their meeting with them. What a nice way to show your friends that you appreciate all the hard work they do for your company!!

DSC_0080 copy

I actually shared this project with my principal, and he loved it! So I made 25 of these for him to hand out to the staff in their mailbox. He wrote messages on all of them, and then we assemble them and handed them out! The staff all LOVED their surprises that waited for them in that morning!! Thanks for the inspiration Sara!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

 


Cropping for Alzheimer's Fundrasier

Hello,

Two weeks ago, we had our Cropping for Alzheimer's fundraiser in memory of my grandma! It was a huge success and I'm excited to share the details with you today! I had 20 ladies join us for the day. They spent the day working on their projects whether it was card making, scrapbooking or preserving their memories with project life! I also had my two aunts and mom help me for the day!!

I'm happy to announce that we donated $500 in memory of my grandma to the Alzheimer's society this past week. I thought I would share some of the day with you!

Their welcome package waiting for them at their tables. At each of their spots were a little pillow gift that contain some post notes, chocolate egg and a package of crystal light drink mix. They also had their welcome package that contain 2 bingo cards, a tombow glue and the Everyday Project Life Card Collection along with the Accessories pack.

The ladies chatting with others and working on their projects.

I had a 50/50 board where when they chose a circle they got to pick out a treat bag as a way of saying thank you. Half of the proceeds went to the Alzheimers and the other half to an order for the winner! These candy bags sold out in minutes! Oh, my grandma had a sweet tooth and sure loved her chocolate! I think that is where I get my love of chocolate from!!

I had many friends donated gifts to our door prizes! Thanks to everyone that helped, it was greatly appreciated!!
