December Paper Pumpkin: All Shook Up

I LOVED this months kit. It seems like every month these kits get better and better, I can't get enough! Of course I couldn't just stick to the designed card, so I made these nine alternate cards as well. I still have a ton of stuff left over too, so I'm not done with this kit yet!

If you'd like to give this kit a try for yourself, or you're a Paper Pumpkin subscriber who would like to see how to get some more out of your kit, come out to my free Paper Pumpkin night on January 25th. You'll get to make your cards, learn some new techniques, and (most importantly for me) get to be social with some other crafters! Email me for the details and to RSVP.

Pumpkin Christmas

The November Paper Pumpkin kit was just amazing. I made so many cards from it, it's not even funny. This is just one style I made, and I added very little extra than the kit. I have a ton of goodies to give away to subscribers, so if you're looking for something for yourself or a friend, order a pre-paid subscription now to get your hands on them!

Santa & Co Cards

I want to say this was my favourite Christmas card, but I liked them all so much! I used a sketch for this one, and then just made it my own! I love the Santa & Co suite, so this was perfect! Each one is different too, which makes them extra special.

Christmas Homes

Another one of my Christmas cards this year. Another CASE of course, I'm just loving these sweet houses!

A lot of these went out to customers with a little thank you gift. Sometimes I get orders through my online store, but the person has selected "no contact". This means while I see someone has ordered, I don't see who or get their contact information. Which unfortunately means I can't send a thank you (or Christmas) card. I do appreciate every order, however large or small it may be, and would love to thank everyone who places one. If you think you may have selected "no contact" by mistake, let me know and I'll fix it!

Gingerbread Christmas

I CASEd this card from a fellow demo (but lost who it was). I love the Endless Wishes stamp set and that you can create so many different sentiments with it! Each one of these cards has a different one!

Bearing Gifts

This was a stamp that I didn't really want to buy at first, then as time went on I changed my mind and wanted it, but didn't really want to put in another order, so I never bought it. Then when I went to our awesome fall regional conference here in Nanaimo, I got one! Not only did I get one for myself, but I got one to give away too!


It's a great stamp to colour, with Blendabilities, blender pens, aqua painters, whatever your favourite method is (I used Blendabilties here). And you could get it all your own for free!

What do you have to do to get it? Contact me today to book a stamping event in the new year! It can be a class, a club, or even a party, and the first person to do so gets this sweet stamp!

Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop : Best Of...


This month's blog hop is all about the "Best of". If you're new to the hop, click along at the bottom to follow the circle around to everyone else's projects. You can also go to the main page to see everyone's work.

You probably came here from Terri's blog, welcome! Everyone did amazing work, and I'm honoured to be part of this fabulous group of ladies. You can also move ahead to Kath's blog to follow along the hop.

For my "Best of the Past" I featured one of my favourite stamps from Sale-A-Bration past. I also used a retired colour that I didn't use enough when it was around, River Rock. This card goes out to a special young lady I know who is going to heal the world some day! Or take over it. Or both... jury's still out.



For my "Best of the Present" I'm sharing this card I made for a coworker. I decided that this is the cutest card I've ever made. I CASEd it from Angela Seargent, just tweaked it a little. I didn't get this stamp set when it was first available, but I got it (and the coordinating framelits) recently when I had a free stamp set to redeem from a promotion. One of the great perks of being a demonstrator!


Last but certainly not least, "Best of the Hop". I was paired with Kath Ricks, who has been around the hop since right back at the start, which made it quite the project to go back and find my favourite project of hers. This one jumped out at me because I LOVE this stamp set. Here's my own version...

More Custom Birthdays

You might remember my green sparkly zebra obsessed friend from last year. This year I had to come up with a whole new card for her. Challenge accepted! I bought this retired stamp set from someone, and then went to town.





The glimmer paper was coloured with reinker and some alcohol, and then covered with Crystal Effects to pull out the colour some more and make it super shiny!

Cards for Sale!

On Friday, I dropped off a HUGE box of cards at the Cowichan District Hospital gift shop. Over 200 cards are there, available for sale by donation to the Hospital Auxiliary! It's such a worthwhile cause, and I'm happy I could help them out.

This card isn't included in the bunch, as it was made especially for one of the doctors I work with at the hospital. But I made a few more (and in different colours) that are for sale there! There's lots of Christmas, birthday, thank you, thinking of you, and other cards too.

Hard Thank Yous

Sorry I've been negligent this week, we had a sudden death in the family and everything else took the back burner. I'm back at work, but it's a struggle, and one of the few things that has made me feel better was making these cards.


Because I know what the paramedics, firefighters, and hospital staff go through when these things happen, I wanted to make a special thank you for them. Within a few minutes I had the names of the paramedics and dispatchers that responded, and I knew who else was involved too. These cards will be going out to them to thank them for everything they did for my family this week.

Washi Tape Addiction

Washi Tape Addition (or WTA) is a well known phenomenon in the crafting world. I recently contracted it from my upline Angela when she sent me a card using the stuff. So I decided to do the only reasonable thing I could think of, and pass it on to all my friend in my technique club!

We made these cards and the cutest little lanterns out of the Curvy Keepsake Box die...
