Did you watch the Royal Wedding? I thought Meghan looked beautiful, and it was easy to see how in love she and Harry are - despite the apparent nerves!! The sermon at the Royal Wedding talked about the power of love. We heard how anything is possible in a world filled with love, when love is shared, and when each of us spreads love in everything we do. Today's card reminds us that everything grows with love.Read More
The Global Design Challenge this week is to Case The Designer, and this time the designer is Brian King. Brian is a demonstrator in Atlanta and I have followed him for a while. His cards are clean and interesting, and I love his designs. He inspires me with lots of his designs, and today I am 'case'ing one of his cards.Read More
I love the Daisy Delight stamp set and coordinating Daisy punch. They make it easy to create quick and cute cards. I was very happy to see that they would still be available when the new annual catalogue comes out on June 1, but it will no longer be a bundle, so get it now and save 10% when you buy both. The Designer Series Paper I used for today's card will also be gone.Read More
The April 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit You Are My Anchor is so much fun. I love all my Paper Pumpkin kits, it is fun to get a crafting gift delivered right to my door each month, but the April kit is really fantastic. These kits include all sorts of great pieces to create your projects, along with a stamp set and an ink spot. It is all cut and ready to go when the box arrives. You just open up the fun! It is easy to get your own, just follow this link! When I got the April kit I loved the stamp set as soon as I saw it.Read More
In a recent blog post I used the Artistically Asian stamp set, and wrote about how much I loved the set. You can see that post here. In that post I used one of the image stamps, but none of the sentiment stamps. I promised to show another card using one of the sentiments from that set, and today is the day!Read More
If you love today's card, you need to act quick! I have used some items that are only available while supplies last, and only until the end of May. One of those items is the Peek-a-Boo Peach card stock. I really like this soft summery colour and will miss it when it retires.Read More
My Spring Stamp-a-Stack was last Saturday, and it was so much fun! Everyone had a great time making cards, visiting, laughing and catching up with stamping friends.
We made some great cards, and made sure everyone was ready for Mother's Day and Father's Day.
The Global Design Project this week is to use this sketch to inspire our cards. I really like working with sketches because they can be very flexible - you can use any stamp set and colours you like, you can turn them, and they are a fun way to be inspired to make different cards with a single layout style. I decided to turn the sketch on it's side for my card.Read More
On Saturday I posted one of the swaps I made for the Stampin' Up! OnStage conference. The second swap I made used supplies that I was sent to use as a Display Board Stamper for the conference. It was a tremendous honour to be a Display Board Stamper, and one I truly enjoyed. I would love to do this again at another Stampin' Up! event. Today's project is my second swap, and uses products that will be available on June 1 in the new annual catalogue.Read More
In April I attended the Stampin' Up! OnStage conference in London, Ontario. Whenever Demonstrators get together we love to swap cards. It is a great way to meet other demonstrators, share ideas and see lots of creative projects. It is tons of fun! This was one of the cards I made to swap. I had 2 different cards, but the other one used brand new product that I had received as a Display Board Stamper, so I couldn't swap that one until mid-morning, after the big catalogue reveal! I knew I wouldn't want to miss out on early morning swapping, so I made a bunch of this card as well.Read More
That is a very familiar saying, and most years that is how it goes. This year has been a little different though. We didn't have too much rain in April around here . . . but we did have quite a bit of snow, and many areas had freezing rain and ice storms. Yikes! I sure hope that is finished now. In any case, there are spring flowers starting to bloom. I have seen crocuses, daffodils and some tulips. My neighbour has some beautiful pansies by the front door, and some of the flowering trees are almost ready to burst open. I love spring, and all the fresh new growth and energy that comes with it. My card today celebrates spring with 3 beautiful flowers bursting open!Read More
Well it looks like today is brought to you by the letter F, and the number Four!!!! Remember that from Sesame Street? That was a great show (it may still be, but I don't have any little ones so I'm not up on my children's programming!!), with some really cute characters. Today the letter F brings us four more cute characters.Read More
Are you super excited about the new annual catalogue from Stampin' Up! that will be live on June 1? There are some fantastic new stamp sets, bundles, inks, papers, embellishments, . . . I could go on, but there is just way too much to fit in here. I will have lots of posts about new products in the upcoming months, but for now, I have some amazing news.
You do not need to wait until June 1st to get your hands on some beautiful new products! That's right, you can order the Share What you Love Suite products RIGHT NOW!!!!
A birthday is something to celebrate, and that can mean cake and ice cream (or other yummy treats!!), but these days many people are watching what they consume, or have an allergy to ingredients in those treats. I'm happy to say that Stampin' Up! has a solution that will still allow us to celebrate someone's birthday. The perfect birthday card . . .Read More
