From The Herd

I made this card for a coworker. I loved this set when I first saw it, and finally got to use it. I used watercolor paper and blender pens to colour the image, and then topped it off with some crystal effects to make the eyes shiny!

Filled With Love

This month's Paper Pumpkin was another winner, 24 (yes twenty four!) goodie bags with gold trimmed tags! I added some extra card stock and got some cards out of them too.

I'm going to be hosting an evening putting these together on February 9, get in touch if you'd like to come out and put together your kit or come try out Paper Pumpkin if you aren't a subscriber yet.




As an extra bonus, check out what I did with the new "Better Than Email" stamp set along side my personalized stamp for the back of the cards! This set allows you to sell hand made cards in compliance with the Angel Policy, and it has some super cute sayings!

Wacky Watercooler Welcome to 2015!

Wacky Watercooler Welcome 2015 Blog Hop

This weeks blog hop is all about new things! If you've never participated in a blog hop before, it's super easy, just follow along the "next" button at the bottom of this post to go along to Deborah's blog. If you've come to my post from Marie's, welcome! You can also always click home to go to the main blog page and see everyone who's participating listed there.

My first card is CASEd from another demonstrator on Stampin' Connection, our demonstrator exclusive website I often call "Facebook for demos". I loved what she did with the "happy" sentiment, so I copied that and added my own "birthday" and embellishments. Don't get what I did here? Keep scrolling to see...



Isn't that a great way of using the new dies? I cut out seven layers of card stock and used liquid glue to stack them before gluing the whole thing onto my card. Simple, effective, and still mailable! You could do this with similar colors to get an ombre look too, maybe I'll try that next!

My next card is featuring some stamps from the annual catalogue I love, Petite Pairs (one of my all time favourites) and Something for Baby. Some designer series paper, some dimensionals, and another card done and ready to mail!


Last but not least I CASEd Christine Giuda. I loved these tags she made up, and couldn't resist turning them into a card.


I hope you enjoyed my projects, click along to visit Deborah, and check out all the fabulous work these ladies have put in!

Manly Birthdays

I had a couple of guy birthdays this month, so I busted out my moustache die again! I used a past Paper Pumpkin stamp for the sentiment, added in some gorgeous grunge for one of them, and Typeset specialty DSP to top it all off. The DSP is even on sale this week!

Weekly Deals: January 6 - 12

Today is the big day! The Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration brochure are live, you can check out the fabulous new products on the online store. You can also take advantage of these Weekly Deals for the next seven days.


I LOVE the Typeset Specialty DSP. I recently made this birthday card for a friend using it, so I figured I would share it with you today.


Something else I love is adding some finishing touches to the inside of the card and the envelope. I find it just ties everything together for that extra bit of pizzaz, and it doesn't take up much time or supplies.
