I don't know about you but I love when Stampin' Up! create a stamp set and then a matching thinlit to go with it. All you had to do is stamp and then punch out using the die and the big shot machine! It's a match made in heaven!!!

Jolly Friends Gift Certificate Holder

Happy Monday!!

It's an exciting day around here as Emily comes home for 2 weeks. I can't wait to have her here and most of spend some time with together as a family!! I know the next 2 weeks will go by fast but we are going to enjoy the time together doing what we love the most..hanging out as a family watching movies, and of course watching the World Juniors!!

I have another gift certificate holder to show you today. This time my holder was made with Kraft Tag a Bags and the Jolly Friends stamp set and coordinating Jolly Friends Punch. I just love this moose from this set and had to use him on my bag!!!














Tips on Creating this Gift Holder:

  • Stamp snowflakes in Versamark so they take the colour of the kraft bag
  • Jolly friends stamp set and punch work together so easily. Just stamp your hat image and punch out
  • Stamp greeting with Mememto ink
  • Stamp Moose on Kraft card stock with Early Espresso Ink
  • Warmth and Cheer designer series paper is perfect for the warm feeling for this project

I have one more gift holder to show you this week using my favourite Christmas Cookie Cutter bundle!! 

Thanks for stopping by and had a great day!!

Well, it sure is looking like Christmas around here these last few days! We had a snow storm that started late Saturday night and is still going on now!! I think we have over 15 cms which has just turned everything into winter wonderland.

Hello December Daily Album 2016


One of my favourite albums to create is a Daily December! I love using the annual Hello December Project Life card collection and accessory pack to document my daily events in December. I have done this the last two years and I have to say they are my favourite albums by far!! I love looking back and seeing all the fun things that we have tons in the past. Some of them are our favourite traditions like counting down the days till Christmas with advents calendars, celebrating our birthday, our baking and so much more and others are just those little things you want to document like having no snow in the month of December!! 

Last week, I spent some time creating my new album and I will be sharing pictures with you soon of our daily memories. I'm waiting for a good day to take some photo's, it's been cloudy and gloomy here the last few days. But today, I'm going to share with you my cover for my album. I was inspired by a few that I saw on Pinterest and one that my good friend Marcy did!! 


















I love the colour combination of Emerald Envy, and Real Red. This was the coordinating colours in the collection and I decided to stay with that as it makes coordinating so much easier as Stampin' Up! has already figure it out for us!

Tips on Creating Hello December Album:

  • Our Project Life Album are the perfect size for this, especially the 6 by 8 album. I chose the Emerald Envy one as it's the perfect colour for Christmas!
  • The Year was cut out using the Large Number Framelits, Silver Foil and Big Shot machine
  • The boughs were cut out with the Pretty Pines Thinltis, Emerald Envy card stock and the Big Shot machine
  • The berries were created with the Pretty Pines Thinlits, Red Glimmer Paper and the Big Shot machine. 
  • The pinecones were done by stamping the solid image with Early Espresso onto a crumb cake card stock and then cut out with the Pretty Pines thinlits and the Big Shot machine. Then cut out the detail pinecone in Crumb Cake card stock using the Pretty Pines thinlits and the Big Shot machine. Glue the detail pine cone to the base. This helps adds dimension to your pinecones!!
  • The bow was created by fraying a piece of Burlap ribbon which will give you string that you can use. I took 2 pieces of Ribbon to create by bow. 
  • The final touch is wrapping the Real Red Stitched Ribbon around the front cover and creating a beautiful bow!

I hope that I have inspired you to create a beautiful album to document your daily memories in December!! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!



Merry Mice Gift Certificates!!


I had some fun on the weekend making up some Gift Certificate Holders. The Merry Mice stamp set was on my desk and I just couldn't resist those cute and adorable mice, so I had to create a holder with them on it. Now I did make 2 other samples and will be sharing those with you over the next few days!!














Are you hoping for some Stampin' Up! products under the Christmas tree this year. You can let your family and friends know that I offer gift certificates and you they can be customize to the amount they would like. Plus I will create a super cute holder for them to put it in!!! How fun it that??

Tips on Creating my Merry Mice Holder:

  • The gift holder is one of our Kraft Bags. They are the perfect way to package up a gift card!!!
  • Add a special detail to your Kraft Bag, by embossing the bag with an embossing folder. I used the embossing folder Holly
  • Fold Kraft bag 1/4 of the way down 
  • Create a belly band by cutting a piece of Designer Series Paper 2 by 12. Fold in half, lay over your bag, and staple at the top of the pattern paper. This will create a belly band for holder. 
  • Cut out a scallop circle with the Layering Circle Framelits, and the Big Shot machine. I used Real Red Card stock to make my scallop circle.
  • Stamp the Mouse image on to a scrap piece of Whisper White with Black Archival Ink.
  • Using the Stitched Shape Framelits and the Big Shot Machine, cut out a circle in Whisper White around your Mice image. 
  • Using your markers: Crumb Cake, Real Red, Garden Green, Blushing Bride and Smokey Slate, colour in your Mouse. Attach to scallop circle and and some rhinestone. Pop onto your belly band
  • Stamp your greeting in Black Memento ink and add to your holder

I hope I have inspired you to give this a try as they are simple to make!! I love finding other ways to use our products and this is a great way to use the Kraft Bags!! 

Now, don't forget to tell your family and friends that you want a Gift Certificate from Stampin' Up under the tree and have them contact me!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
