Happy Friday,

Wow, I can't believe how fast this week went. The weather has been fantastic and we have been outside enjoying every minute of it. It feels so good to open up the windows and the back patio door to let all that fresh Spring air in!!

I hope you are having a great day!! The sun is shining here and the temperatures is 21c! It feels like Spring and we are loving it!! The girls have been outside all day riding their bikes, playing basketball, hockey and just having fun.

We spent the day hanging out with our friends Michelle and Jacob. Michelle and I spent the day crafting as she needed to make some cards for family. We had fun bouncing idea's off each other. She got a lot done!

I have to say that this is my favourite Designer Series paper. You can earn this paper for FREE when you place an order of $60 during Sale a Bration. You only have a few weeks left....

Sending Me Soaring Card


Happy Leap Day as these days only come once every 4 years! LOL I had a chance the last two days to do some stamping as I was home with a sick girl. It felt so good to stamp for just the fun of it. I played with new stamps, try new things and made a variety of cards!! I love my job!!

The sun has been shining the last few days, so I was inspired to make this spring like card. I had fun inking up Sending Me Soaring for the first time. Sad, I know as this set is so cute. This spring like set is one that you can use beyond the Spring Season. You can use the clouds and greetings for another projects all year around and the kites can be used to create background borders!! Sets like this are a must in your stamp collection!!

MIxed Bunch Birthday Card

Happy Friday!

We are so looking forward to our long weekend as it's Family Day on Monday. Not sure what we have planned but either way it will be nice to have that extra day!

While blog hopping I came across this cool technique on Barb's blog. They had learned this fun technique at Leadership and I knew that I have to give it a try!

Cut a piece of the Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets a bit bigger than your stamepd image.
Peel off one side of the backing sheet and place the sticky side down covering your stamped image.
Punch your image out. You should be able to see through the adhesive sheet to do this.
Remove the remaining backing sheet to expose the adhesive and smoosh it into your Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. How fun is that!!

My card today was inspired by a card that I saw on line from Stampin Connection! Thanks for the inspiration Ilina C. I love how she used the new Simply Score tool to create the lines at the bottom of the card. It's hard to tell from the photo. I must remember to do more of this!!

Happy Birthday Sale a Bration Card


I hope you are having a great weekend so far!

Last night I had fun creating with my downline. Once a month, I set aside a time where they can come play in my studio. All they have to do is bring the projects to work on. They love finding inspiration in my studio, and trying out new products before they purchase them.

One of the things that I wanted to introduce to my downline this year is giving them ideas for classes. They are always asking me where I find my inspiration and how I come up with the ideas. So I created a class around using products from Sale a Bration that they can show their customers and family. I kept the cards simple so they can use them for new beginners. We made 4 cards last night using products from the Sale a Bration MIni.

This is one of the cards that we made. We used the new Everyday Enchantment DSP..LOVE THIS PAPER!!
