Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop: April Fools


This blog hop is all about April Fools, so how fitting that I'm running ridiculously behind in posting it! If you've come from Jackie's blog, welcome, if this is your first stop, don't forget to check out the others' projects!

My first project came to me while I was playing with the Alphanumeric Simply Pressed Clay mould. I was making random letters when I realized it reminded me of the magnetic letters I had on my fridge in university. I decided to make something with them that reminded me of that. I took my letters and added colour to them with my ink pads, and glazed them with Crystal Effects.


Then as luck would have it, I visited our friend Deborah! The rest of the Water Cooler Gang doesn't know we met in person, but I had a great time with her just chatting away the other day. AND in coincidences to end all coincidences, she lives only a couple of doors down from where that infamous fridge was!


I did use some retired products on my canvas, and the cards on it where ones I received from my lovely friends in the Water Cooler. But I think I can be forgiven for bending the rules a little for April Fools!


I've been loving my shaker cards too! Most of the cards I've seen with this set of framelits have had a cut out balloon popped up on a card, so I decided to reverse it and fill the balloon with confetti! Those stars just make me happy...


And finally, I'll leave you with a piece of advice from a stamp set I love...


I hope you enjoyed my projects, hop along to see everyone else's work, either go forward to Marie's blog, or backwards to Jackie's! You can also head over to the main site to see the master list of posts.

Any of the current products I used here are available through your demonstrator or any of the Water Cooler Gang.

Butterflies are back!

After a lot of patient waiting, the butterfly dies are back! With the west coast dock worker strikes, a lot of products got tied up in shipping, and unfortunately these dies were some of them. They are available to order again, and you NEED them!

I made this card for a special friend and customer for a special birthday. I did use Blendabilities to colour in the flower, but you could easily use blender pens or aqua painters as well.


Not only are they back, but they're kind of on sale too! If you get just the dies before April 30, you'll get 15% off, and if you get one of the bundles, you'll get to pick from one of the Sale-A-Bration items (the bundles are discounted already).

As I mentioned in yesterdays post, I've been making a ton of cards for sale in various places. I've been doing a monthly market in Shawnigan Lake, have cards for sale in a flower shop in Victoria, and am gearing up to launch some exclusive cards in another retail location (stay tuned on that one). One of the things I've had a lot of requests for is baby cards.


I'm not really much of a baby card person, but the Something for Baby bundle made making a whole pile of them a snap! I used the Lullaby designer series paper too. For an added bonus, I only used one sheet to make six of these cards. By cutting the layers and just flipping half of them over, I got both feminine and masculine colours!


But my very favourite thing about this bundle is that I got it for FREE! Wouldn't you love to get free stamp sets, dies, card kits, and more? Email me today to find out how!

New and Old

I have two cards to share with you today, one using current product, and one using (mostly) retired product.


This card is a CASE I saw on Pinterest somewhere. It uses some of my favourite retired dies (the dress forms) and the flower from a past embellishment kit. There's soon going to be more retiring products, we'll know on April 21st what is retiring to make room for new things in the new catalogue coming out in June. But for now, we do know we'll be losing the 2013-2015 In Colors, which were some of my favourites.


The good news is though that you can still get them right now. So if you're particularly attached to Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, or Strawberry Slush you can still get all the paper, ink, twine, and more you need! And if you place your order online by this Friday using the hostess code "4BDAND6V", you'll get free shipping and a gift from me! In Colors always sell out well before they actually retire, so get your order in NOW!

My next card is using mostly current products (though I did sneak in some of my favourite retired ribbon). I've been having so much fun making cards for sale at markets and a local store that I'd forgotten I'd ordered the Wetlands stamp set and never inked it up! I finally made it a challenge for myself to use it, and CASEd this card. It just so happened that I needed a stack of thank you cards anyway, so I made a bunch of them!


I love the masking tape technique I used for the back ground. Each card came out slightly differently and it's a super simple way to add texture to an image. I also almost always stamp on the envelope and the inside of my cards to give them that finish, polished, look and feel.

Watercooler Challenge

I just squeaked into this weeks Watercooler Challenge, which was these awesome colours!


I didn't use all of them, but I quite like how it turned out.


I also wanted to share my little trick for layering with dimensionals too. As you can see, you can double stack them to create a higher layer on one end of a piece, or on a whole one!


Head on over to the main challenge site to see everyone else's work, and submit your own project!
