That Smile Scrapbook Layout

Hello,

My project today is one that I made  back in February for my Memory Keeping Club. As I was looking for a sketch to create my page from, I came across one on Pinterest. As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew the picture that I wanted to use.  I absolutely LOVE these picture of Corrie. If you knew my husband you know that he had infectious smile that lite up the room when he was in it. I have had so many tell me how much they miss that smile and his laugh!! I know the girls and I miss it more and more every day. 

IMG_6594

Once I was finished with this page, I fell in LOVE with it so much that I'm going to hang it in my studio! I know that our angel is with us each and every day, but seeing his smile each day us help get through this stormy sea!! 

Tips and Tricks on my layout....

  • Carried Away is the Designe Series Paper, this was one of the products that you can earn for FREE during Sale a Bration
  • I used the Lift me Up Bundle ( stamp set and matching framelits)
  • My colours are Smoky Slate, Whisper White, Peekaboo Peach, Mint Macaroon and Watermelon Wonder
  • I used the Layered Letters Alphabet and Letters for you stamp sets

I thought I could write this post without tears, but nope..I have tears running down my face. For the girls and I seeing pictures of Corrie daily helps us get through this stormy sea! They make us smile as we know he is with us each move we make..we have a special guardian angel watching us!! 

Thanks for all the cards, emails, visit, messages these last few months, we really appreciate it!! 

Hugs!!

Gold Celebration!!!

Hello,

During the last week of Sale a Bration, lots of fun things were happening in my business. My team was recruiting like crazy and growing!! My Downline Rebecca was one recruit away from advancing to Silver Elite and just like that the magic happened! Rebecca recruited her fifth recruit, she advance to Silver Elite and I advance to Gold!! I was over the moon excited as this is a huge accomplished and I'm so grateful for my team, customers and family that made this happen. I was sad that I couldn't share my news with Corrie in person, but I know my angel had something to do with this and he was smiling up there as proud as can be!!! 

The exciting news is that I found out that I'm one of 22 other demonstrators in Canada that holds this title of out 4500 demonstrator's in Canada! So from the bottom of my heart...thank you!!

Celebrate Today!!

Hello,

Have you had a chance to check out the products that will be leaving us on May 31. Some items are already sold out but there is a tons of product still available. You can view the list of products by heading to my ONLINE store. 

As I was prepping for my class this week, I decided that I wanted to showcase a few products that would be leaving us. I wanted to show my customers how fabulous these items are and I don't want them to miss out on ordering them before they are gone for good!!

I'm sad to see the Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder colours go! These were great colours that went with so many different colour combinations!! I hope that SU will bring these back in the future! 

Want to recreate my card, let me show you how with these tips and tricks:

  • My colour combination is Smoky Slate, Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush 
  • Smoky Slate Card stock cut at 5 1/2" by 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • Smoky Slate card stock ( 4" by 5 1/4"), embossed with Softly Falling Impression Folder and the Big Shot machine
  • A Little Foxy Friends Designer Series Paper cut to 3" by 4"
  • Whisper White card stock cut to 2 3/4" by 3 3/4"
  • Stamp Ballon image from Celebrate Today with Watermelon Wonder ink. Stamp off on a piece of scrap paper before you stamp onto your White piece. This will give a softer colour for the solid background. 
  • Then using Watermelon Wonder ink again, stamp the dots/stars image at full strength. 
  • Stamp the greeting Celebrate in Cucumber Crush ink near the bottom corner. 
  • Using a stapler, staple the whisper white piece to the pattern paper.  I off set my layers to give a little bit of dimension to it. 
  • Adhere the Smoky slate piece to your card base. Pop up the whisper white/pattern paper with dimensionals. 
  • Create a bow with Whisper White baker twine to your balloon with a glue dot!!

I love that you can use this card for any celebration, maybe a birthday, maybe a card to say congrats you did it, or maybe you are celebrating a success story! Either way, your family and friends would love to receive this card!!!

Beautiful You Card!!

Hello,

Hope you are having a great weekend. It looks like it going to be a sunny one around here and it's a great time to get some outside items checked off my to do list! Wish me luck!!

My project today is one that I made with my good friend Rebecca. Rebecca invited me over for an afternoon of stamping and she had this card ready for me to create, all I had to do was stamp, colour and put together. Now that is my kind of card!! Actually it was nice to be on the other side of creating for a change!

Exciting news...the Beautiful You stamp set will be carrying over into the new Annual Catalogue. So you have lots of time to create beautiful projects with this gorgeous stamp set. This set is perfect for so many occasions! 

Want to recreate my project, I have some tips and tricks for you:

  • Colour Combination is Pool Party, and Very Vanilla 
  • Pattern Paper is from the Falling In Love Designer Series Paper Pack, and unfortunately the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper is already sold out. 
  • Make a beautiful layer using the Big Shot machine, the Layering Ovals Collection Framelits and the Stitched Shape Framelits
  • Ribbon is the 3/8 Stitched Pool Party Ribbon and unfortunately it's sold out too. But you could easily switch it out for Very Vanilla ribbon
  • Stamp the lady image onto Shimmery White card stock with Black Archival Ink 
  • Colour the lady using the Watercolour Pencils and Blender Pen. I love using my blender pen as I feel I have more control over shading and colouring!
  • Stamp greeting with Black Memento ink

So are you ready to recreate this project? Did you know that you can use the layout to recreate another card for a different occasion. That is one of my favourite things to do is to look for card sketches on line and then use that layout to create my own card!

Sneak Peak: This Little Piggy

Hello,

I'm excited to share a sneak peak of a new stamp set coming out in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue that will start on June 1st, 2017.  This new stamp set is called "This Little Piggy" and let me tell you when I first saw it in the catalogue I was like OMG..that is so cute!! Can you imagine my excitement when this stamp set was given to us as an All Attendee giveaway at Onstage!!

6a00e5503fcb82883401b7c8ef5f12970b-500wi 

My project has a little bit of old and new mixed together!! I think this would make a great baby card, birthday card or thank you card!

Tips and Tricks for my card:

  • My colours are Pink Pirouette, Pool Party and Whisper White
  • My pattern paper is from the Subtles Designer Series Paper pack in Pink Pirouette
  • I used the Layering Square Collection Framelits, the Layering Circle Collection and the Stitched Shape Framelits for my squares and circles. Cutting these out with the big shot is so simply and easy!! Actually the Big Shot is my #1 tool in my craft room!! I use it on every project!!
  • I stamped the Piggy on to Shimmery White paper with my Black Archival Ink. Did you know that Shimmery white is a great alternative to Watercolour paper..you can easily colour with a blender pen or aqua painter! 
  • I used Pink Pirouette and Old Olive ink to colour the piggy and the grass. 
  • I add a white bow with the Whisper White twine to finish the card off!

So what do you think, is this Piggy not the cutest little piggy ever?? I think I see a class in the future with this stamp set? What do you think?

Want to make this card at home, I have listed the supplies for you below and you can order directly from my ONLINE store. Just remember that "This Little Piggy" stamp will be available start June 1st, 2017.

Marble Technique - Nail it Bundle

Hello,

My project today is a oldie but fun technique. My friend Angie McKay from North Shore Stamper reminder me of this fun technique and I couldn't wait to give it a try!! I knew it would be the perfect technique for this month's technique class!!

I had the Nail It Bundle sitting on my desk and wanted to use it for my project!! I bought this set as it reminds me so much of Corrie...he sure did love his tools and often told me that you need a variety of tools to complete the job!!! This card is for my lovely husband and I'm sure he is up there in heaven fixing things for others! 

IMG_6606

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tips and Tricks on my project:

  • The Nail It Bundle is perfect stamp set and matching framelits for the men in your lives!
  • The Hexagon Dymanic Impression Folder adds the perfect touch and dimension to your project
  • Basic Grey reinker, marbles and a wood clear mount case is all you need to do this technique. Add a few drops of reinker in your wood clear mount case. Add your marbles and shake up to spread the ink around. Add a piece of paper to the wood case and close the lid. Once again, shake the case moving the marbles around to create an unique pattern on your white paper! The trick with this technique is only a few small drops of ink, as you want it to be even spread out.
  • Stamp the screw driver and cut out with matching framelit, and then colour with Delightful Dijon and Smoky Slate marker 
  • My pattern paper is the Urban Underground Specialty Paper - sad news, it's already sold out

The sad news is the Nail It Bundle is on the retiring list and will be leaving us at the end of May. And the sad part is that its already SOLD out which doesn't surprise me as it was a great bundle!!! I have to tell you that this is one bundle that I will be keeping as it reminds me too much of Corrie!!

You can check out the Retiring List by heading over to my online store. You can click here to check out the product that will be leaving us on May 31. Remember stamp set are guarantee till May 22 and accessories are while supplies last!!

Onstage Gifts for Downline

Hello,

I recently had the opportunity to attend the Onstage Local event in Toronto. I was so excited as I had 10 of my lovely team members there with me!! I wanted to let you them know I was so proud of them and the I love having them on my team!

I don't know about you but I love to snack while I'm crafting and my favourite thing to munch on is Chocolate!! So I thought it would be fun to create a little gift with a variety of chocolate it in!!

IMG_6640

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I filled a mason jar with Cabury Mini Eggs, Lindor Eggs and a Golden Lindor Bunny!! These are my favourite things at Easter time!!

IMG_6641

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I used the "You are Amazing" greeting from the All Things Thanks stamp set for my topper. I stamped the image in Versamark, then sprinkled on Silver Embossing Powder and then heat set it with my Heat Gun! I love how sparkly this topper is!! I used the Layering Circle Collection framelits and my favourite tool the Big Shot machine to cut the circles and scallop circle!!

IMG_6642

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To finish off my mason jar, I used a piece of fabric to create a little skirt for the lid, and then tied some Melon Mambo Ribbon around the lid of the jar. I attached a banner to let them know that they are the Egg-Stra Special. My greeting and the eggs are from the Basket Bunch stamp set. This is a MUST in your collection for your spring projects!! It's the perfect stamp set as it has a matching basket bunch framelit to go with it. And the sad news..it's retiring at the end of May! So don't wait to long...get your's before it's gone for good!
