Tranquil Tulips Hostess Card

Hello,

Happy Monday! Sorry for being MIA the last few days, it's been a busy few days as we try to get Emily ready to head back to University . We only have a few more days and then she head back. I'm not sure my heart is ready for this but I know she is. She is so excited to head back to see her friends, and to her program. I'm excited to watch her grow and see where her career path takes her. I will keep you posted as to how it goes!!

My card today is one that we made in July at my Demonstrator Slizzin Event with my team. I had 7 wonderful ladies qualified for the day and I loved spoiling them with lunch, prizes, and goody bags. During the afternoon event, we made 7 projects for them to take back their business to share with their customers. 

One of the things I wanted to showcase was the fabulous Hostess stamp sets that we have this year. This year's hostess set are gorgeous!!!

Hang your Stocking Christmas Card

Hello,

I know it's hard to think about Christmas when the sun is shining, and I have to be honest with you, I'm not really looking forward to the holiday season this year. The holiday season is ALWAYS my favourite time but this one will be a tough one without Corrie. He always made the holidays extra special for us!! I have been working on samples for my studio and upcoming classes and feel that I can create them right now as we are not in the holiday season mode yet and my emotional are not tugging at my heart yet!! Plus the sun shining does help with the creating!!

My project today is one that we made last month in our first Christmas Stamp a Stack class!. This is a great way to stock up on your cards as you make 10 cards each session (2 each of 5 designs). 

DSC_0017

I keep these cards simple as I know many of my customers like to mail their cards to family and friends. When adding ribbon, I always tell them it's up to them if they would like to add it to their cards incase they want to mail them!

My colours are 

When I'm selecting colours for my card, I always go with the colour coordination on the pack of the Designer Series Paper Pack. Did you know that SU lists the colours on the pack? This is a handy little too!!

My pattern paper is the "Be Merry" Designer Series Paper pack and it's a great collection of pattern paper as it uses the traditional colours for the holiday season!!

Fabulous Flamingo Thanks Card

Hello,

While searching for different idea's on ways to use the Embossing Paste, I saw a tutorial where she used the our Embossing Folders to create texture in the embossing paste. I was thinking "Will that will work" Of, course I had to give it a try!

  DSC_0010

I first cut out a large circle using our thick Whisper White card stock, the big shot machine, the magnetic platform and the Layering Circle Framelits. 

For the embossing paste, I mixed a few drops of Bermuda bay re-inker into my embossing paste and mixed the paste till I had the colour that I wanted. Once, I had the colour that I was looking for, I apply the paste to my circle, making sure to add paste to the whole circle. 

Using the Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, I open the folder and press half of the folder into the paste and press down on the folder to ensure that the emboss images would transfer to my paste. Pull up the folder and voila, you now have the seaside embossing folder images in your paste. Let dry for about 10 mins before adding to your project!!

DSC_0009

I kept my card simply as I wanted to focus on the technique on this card. My leaves behind the flamingo are leftover leaves from the June Paper Pumpkin kit called "One in Melon". I love when you can use our kits on your everyday projects!!

Beach Scrapbook Layout

Hello,

Last month at our Memory Keeping Club, I wanted to show my stampers how to use the new Embossing Paste. First of all, I love this new paste!! It's so simply and easy to use that honestly you can't stop using it!!

DSC_0030

When designing my page, I wanted to show them a few techniques that they could use on their pages. First we did the marble technique. I wanted to create the look of sticks drag across the sand at the beach. Then, we add some random stamping using the Touches of Textures stamp set. We used the one that looks like sand! Next, we added our embossing paste. We add a few drops of the Crumb Cake reinker to the Embossing Paste to tint the paste a light colour. I wanted it to look like sand on the page. 

DSC_0029

Once our background was done we started on the next part which was the fence. Using the Classic Label punch and the Wood Texture Designer Series Paper, we cut out post for our fence. Actually one 6 by 6 sheet was the right amount to create the fence across the page. Of course we had to add some Linen Thread to make it look like rope hanging on the fence. The finishing touches was the birds on the fence and the seashell off to the side. 

My stampers LOVED this page and learning a little bit of mixed media! They loved it so much that they want another fun technique this month!! 

We also create one pocket page to go with our 12 by 12 traditional page. This is the perfect mixed for those that loved the hands on with the traditional pages along with the quick easy with the pocket page!!

DSC_0031

I keep this page simply as I knew it would take a little longer to create the 12 by 12 traditional page. On this page, we used the following stamp set: Touches of Texture, So Many Shells, and Colourful Seasons!

I can't stress how important it is to take picture of your daily activities and to get them into album and not on your phone. The pictures you take now will tell stories later for generation to come. You want to make sure you document those chapter in your lives, not just the milestones but those little moments too! 

I have listed all the supplies that I have used for you at the bottom of this post, and the best part is that you can either click on the clickable images, or the supply list PDF.
