Dragonfly Dreams!!

Happy Monday!! 

I hope you had a great weekend. Ours was super fun with a visit down to see Emily on Saturday, hockey with Alison and then a Downline meeting on Sunday afternoon that was super fun!! We missed the ones that were not able to attend due to weather and hope the weather is good for our next one February!

My project today is a card that I made using the new Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and coordinating Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies. 






















I created a background wash by using my sponge daubers and Sugarplum ink! I learned this cool technique back in the fall from my friend Kimberly and had to give it a try!! I love that its quick and simply but it has a wonderful effect on the card!

This is one colour combination that I just discover and oh my...I love it! I love how simple and elegant it makes the card look!!

Curious to see what is in the Dragonfly Dreams bundle? Did you know when you purchase a bundle you save 10% off instead of purchasing the stamp set and thinlits separate?

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

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!!

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!!
