As a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator I love what I do. I get to meet all sorts of wonderful people, spend time stamping and creating with them, go on weekend get-aways, teach people how to create beautiful cards and other paper crafting projects, and be creative every day. I have flexibility in my work schedule, have learned lots of new things, and . . . I get all my crafting supplies at a discount!!Read More
My Mom loved Delft Blue, and I do too. She had a stunning Delft Blue plate collection that covered an entire wall in her kitchen. The new In Colour Blueberry Bushel is very much like the colour of those plates, and my card today looks like a Delft Blue tile to me.Read More
The new Lovely Floral TIEF (Textured Impressions Embossing Folder) really is lovely. You can use it to create a beautiful focal point for your card. This card may look a little tricky to make, but it isn't really difficult. I used punches and embossing folders to create loads of detail in my card.Read More
If you follow my blog, you know that I am in love with the new In Colour Grapefruit Grove. It is showing up in a lot of my cards these days!! I love how it easily coordinates with so many other colours in our collections, and how bright and cheery it is. Today I have used it with Rich Razzleberry and Pear Pizzazz for my card.Read More
We have a sketch challenge at #GDP146 today. Come join me on a little escape to paradise with colours that remind me of the tropical bliss we enjoy while travelling south.Read More
One of my neighbours at the cottage turned 70 at the end of June. What a great reason to celebrate! Debbie and Bill love spending time at their cottage, so it made perfect sense that her family and friends would gather at the lake to celebrate her milestone birthday. This is the birthday card I made to celebrate her day, and help her enjoy spending time relaxing at the cottage.Read More
Tomorrow is Canada Day, and for many people in Canada it is a long weekend with a holiday day on Monday. Today my card honours our beautiful country.Read More
The Global Design Project challenge this week is to CASE (copy and selectively edit) the Designer, and this week it is a lovely design by Charlet Mallett. She has a beautiful card with many wonderful layers, giving us lots of elements to play with for our CASE. Today I needed to make cards for two very special people, so I decided to CASE Charlet’s card twice!Read More
Do you believe in love at first sight? If you are a crafter, you have probably fallen in love many times when you first saw a new craft product!! That was how I felt when I first saw the Nature's Poem Suite. The Rooted in Nature stamp set has some beautiful images of trees and leaves. The sentiment stamp Be Strong Be Happy Be You is one of my new favourites, and the coordinating Nature's Roots Framelits Dies make cutting and designing with these images super easy.Read More
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
