Happy New Home!

Hey Stampers,

One of my best friends is moving into a new house this week! Her and her husband have building their dream home for a long time, and its finally ready! Myself and my hubby went to visit last night. We have been there before of course, but it seems so real with their furniture and everything there too!! So I made a cute card (of course) using the awesome Holiday Home stamp set. I just love it! Take a look ...

I just love paper piecing. Thats when you stamp the same image a few times on different card stocks and cut out the pieces and layer them together. Like I did on my cute house with the brick, door, windows and roof! Adorable, right?? I just love the color combo of Cherry Cobbler, Island Indigo, Hello Honey and Soft Suede. I made the base of the house in the new Kraft paper too, which so such great. I wanted a kind of rustic feel, so instead of using Whisper White I used the Naturals White. SUCH a difference! I just love it.

Well that is all for me today! Thanks so much for dropping by. Have a great day and Happy Stamping!!

Bloom With Hope Birthday

Hey Stampers,

Sharing a card using the awesome Bloom with Hope hostess stamp set today! I just love this fab set, and the Blendabilities markers are just perfect for colouring it! Take a look!!

There was some major fussy cutting involved with this card, but I think it really turned out beautifully! Those leaves were kind of difficult to cut out, but it was total worth it!! I am getting a little better at colouring with the Blendabilities - they are so fun to use!! I just love the nice sentiments in with this set as well. Love when sets have both images and words!!

Well that is all for me today! Thanks a lot for visiting. Hope you have a wonderful weekend and Happy Stamping!!

Twas the Night Before Christmas ...

Hey Stampers,

I have been in SUCH a scrapbooking mood lately!! And its a good thing, because I am pretty behind in my memory keeping. Just doing last Christmas!! But, I am really loving the fun pictures I am using and cute layouts I am making! Thought I would share this fun page documenting Christmas Eve from last year. Take a look …

I just LOVE the traditions surrounding Christmas. The rituals of hanging up the stockings, putting out cookies for Santa and waiting for Santa himself to arrive! My son loves them as well. I thought I would combine these fun events into a fun page. The paper is just some stuff from my stash - but I paired it
with some cute SU products. The retired Festive Flurry framelits make a fun window for some Champagne Glimmer Paper to pee through. I also lot my glimmer Tree using the Tree Punch. And the Good Greetings stamp set adds a fun Christmassy element too!! But I think my MAIN must have for scrapbooking lately is the awesome Project Life Day to Day stamp set. I use it on EVERY page! I just love the days of the week, months and number stamps. So excellent for adding the date to pages!! Love it!

Well that is all for me today! I hope you liked my scrapbook page! Thanks so much for stopping by today and Happy Stamping!!

Pumpkin Thanksgiving Table Favours

Hey Stampers,

With (Canadian) Thanksgiving this weekend, I thought I would share these adorable table favours, perfect for a Thanksgiving dinner to decorate your table! I am SO in love with the Curvy Keepsakes Box Thinlits Die, aren’t you!? You can create so many cute items - not to mention just making it out of beautiful DSP or stamped cardstock. I decided to make it into a cute pumpkin, and we made it at my September Stamp Club. My girls LOVED it - take a look!!

Adorable, right? And it can hold a lot of little treats too!! Yummy!! I cut it out with Pumpkin Pie cardstock and then used the line image from the Work of Art stamp set to stamp on my stripes to make it look more “pumpkin-y”. I added a little leaf (stamped and die cut) from the Fall Fest bundle, an Autumn Wooden Element leaf and a cute tag made with the Good Greetings set and the Itty Bitty Banners. I just trimmed one end of the banner into an arrow shape, and punched it with my 1/8” Handheld Hole Punch. Cute right!? This was tied around my handle with Linen Thread and then some Mossy Meadow Satin Ribbon in a little knot as well. LOVE that rich Mossy Meadow color!! 

Well that is all for me today! I am so looking forward to the long weekend! Hope you are too (if you are Canadian haha). Thanks a lot for dropping by today and Happy Stamping!!

CCC #047: "Enter if You Dare" October Card Color Challenge!

Hey Stampers,

Welcome to another fun challenge for Catherine and Cathy Create! I just love Hallowe’en, I mean it is my birthday after all. So I always go ALL out around this time of year! I We are having fun Color Challenge over on CCC for our Cards Challenge this month! Traditional Hallowe’en is always Black an Orange but I love adding Green and Purple to the mix as well!! So make a fun card using these colors and share it with us!! Here is a look at the card I made :) 

CUTE right!? I love that fun ghost from Fall Fest. I embossed him with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder onto some Basic Black cardstock - he turned out so cute!! And of course, the matching framelits are a must!! My fun background is i think my fav part of this card though. I masked off that centre section of my card with some Post It’s and then used my Dots mask from the Dots and Stripes pack along with a Sponge Dauber and some Pumpkin Pie ink to make these fun polka dots! Of course, you can make the polka dots with a sponge dauber and no mask, but I wanted to use the mask as a guide so my polka dots were all perfectly arranged hahaha

Also a heads up about the awesome Good Greetings stamp set used here. Isn’t that font just so fun!? You can earn that exclusive stamp set yourself until October 31st with a qualifying order or workshop of $325. Let me know if you want to host a party OR place an order yourself!!

Thanks so much for dropping by today. Please join us over on CCC - you could win a prize! Have a great day and Happy Stamping!!

Om Nom Nom Monster Munchie Mix

Hey Stampers,

Hope you are having a good day - yay for Friday!! I had my October Stamp Club last night, and we had a great time!! I am sharing with you today my cute Hostess gift. A treat bag of yummy snacks that I decorated with the Freaky Friends and Ghoulish Greetings stamp sets. Love them! Take a look!

I thought the “Om Nom Nom” was too cute. Doesn’t it sound like something a hungry monster might say!? And it fit in hat Word Bubbles framelit so perfectly!! And really, except for the addition of the little bat, this treat bag could be for any time of year - not just Hallowe’en. I used some of the (surprise, surprise) Motley Monsters DSP for my tag, as well as the Banners and Deco Labels framelits. 

Here is another angle of the bag. I just love that Tangerine Tango Two Tone Trim. Nice and thick and soft. 

That is all for me today! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Thanks for dropping by and Happy Stamping!

CCC #046: “Happy Hallowe’en” October Challenge

Hey Stampers,

Welcome to October! One of my fav months, because I LOVE fall and Hallowe’en AND Hallowe’en is my birthday! Lots of fun in October for sure! And of course, a new month means a new challenge over on Catherine and Cathy Create!! Our theme this month is Happy Hallowe’en, so whip up a super cute Hallowe’en project and come on over and share it with us!! I am sharing cute treat bags that I am making with my girls at Stamp Club tomorrow night. Take a look!!

I love doing up fun treats for my sons little friends, but I DONT want them to take forever! This one is cute, simple and QUICK to make - which is a must! As you know, I am obsessed with the Motley Monsters DSP so I chose the cute pumpkins pattern and used one of the pumpkins from the Fall Fest stamp set for my stamped image. Love how the photopolymer set makes it so easy to use ink pads and STILL the stem is a different color than the pumpkin! Awesome. 

And here is a close up of just the bag topper. I used the Gusseted Cello Bags from SU and I LOVE them. They fit a ton, and are really nice. This largest scalloped oval from the Ovals Collection framelits fit over it perfectly! And then the largest plain oval is on the inside with the DSP. Cute right!?

Well that is all for me today! Please come by to Catherine and Cathy Create to join us in celebrating Hallowe’en! Thanks a lot for visiting and Happy Stamping!!
