Did you catch my Facebook Friday Live yesterday? I was so excited to Introduce this new catalogue and the Sale-A-Bration Brochure! I kicked it off with two new card demonstrations using one of my favourite suites called "From My Heart Suite" You can see the live by clicking the link to my YouTube recording below...

Here's a look at the cards I featured yesterday.

My first card...

IMG_0787Here are the card measurements for this card:

Layer #1 (Card Base): Whisper White Thick Cardstock: 41/4   x 11 , scored at 5 1/2"

Layer #2: Flirty Flamingo 4 x 51/4"

Layer #3: Whisper white 3 3/4x 5" (run through the new Parisian Flourish Emossing folder first) 

Layer #4: Dsp strip from My heart Designer Series Paper packs (heart pattern) 1"x 3 3/4"

The front of the card has hearts that have been stamped using the Heartfelt Stamp set and Memento and Real Red inks. they were punched using the New  Heart Punch Pack. 

This card also has a small knot tied from the New Real Red 3/8" Double-Stitched Stain Ribbon and attached with a glue dot.

 A close up of the card front..


Here's a look at my second card....

This card features a "Gate fold" and it is held together with a fun little belly band that just slips easily off like this...


Here are the card measurements for this card:

Layer #1 (Card Base): Flirty Flamingo Cardstock: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" , scored at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8"

Layer #2: Whisper white 2 pieces each measuring 1 7/8" x 5 1/4"

Layer #3: A Dsp strip from My heart Designer Series Paper packs (shiny Red foil pattern)  3/4" x 12"

I just simply wrapped the long strip of the shiny Red DSP around the front of the card and "loosely " attached it at the back using Multipurpose Glue. Then I attached a Flirty Flamingo Doily to the strip and finished it with a heart punched from the DSP and added with Stampin Dimensionals.

I made both of these cards using the Heartfelt Bundle! The best part is... when you purchase the bundle together for $61.00 you'll be saving 10% AND you'll qualify for a FREE Sale-A-Bration items of your choice!!

Birthday Bonanza!



On today's Facebook Friday video, I had a chance to play with a brand new suite that's called Birthday Bonanza. It's coming in the upcoming New Mini Catalogue that starts on January 3rd.

So many bright colours, fun birthday images, and gorgeous Designer Series paper in this suite! You will definitely be seeing more projects here on my blog using this fun bundle of products.

Cheers To The New Year!


On my Facebook Friday live, yesterday, I featured this shiny New Year's card. If you'd like to see how easy this card came together, check out the video on my Facebook page here.



Here's a close up of the Champagne foil. Oh! I love this paper! To do the background on this card, I used the dies from the Sip, Sip, Hooray bundle. There's one long die that cuts all these "holes" in one run through the Big Shot. Then I just glued a piece of the champagne foil measuring 2" x 5 1/4" behind the very vanilla card stock to get the look of Champagne bubbles. So easy!

Merry Moose Birthday card for Kylie's Demo Support Blog Hop!


Today I am excited to have a chance to participate in a Blog Hop with some fabulous Demonstrators from all over the world! We are all a part of Kylie Bertucci's Demo training program and this is our monthly Blog Hop! 

I am combining some products from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue with the Merry Moose Stamp set from the Holiday Catalogue to make a masculine birthday card. Final (3)

Here's a close up of the greeting from the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set. This Happy Birthday sentiment was originally a long stamp but I did a little "Stamp Surgery" and cut mine in half so that the words now fit in the 1 1/2" circle punch. 



To make the Moose appear in the foreground, I stamped the Moose on a sticky note paper and did a little fussy cutting of the Moose outline.  I just stamped the tree over top of the sticky note like this...


I will keep this sticky note with my stamp set and I can continue to use it for this fun "masking" technique.


I hope you like my card today and you'll keep hopping along on the Blog hop to see all the beautiful projects everyone has made. 

Here's the list of talented stampers in the Hop today:

A fun Paper Pouch for this week's Global Design Project


Today, I am playing along with this week's Global Design Project Challenge. #GDP199. It's a Theme challenge and it's titled "For the Love of Craft"

Well, how could I resist this one! Stampin up! has so many things to choose from for this challenge!



Here's  what I came up with using the stamp set called Crafting Forever. These fun pouches are made with 2 paper lunch bags and they can be stuffed with so many things for any occasion.  Wouldn't these make a fun gift for Birthday or Christmas or Halloween? There are so many things you could fill them with!

I actually made these a few years ago for pillow gifts for a girls trip and I filled them with "girly" things like an eye mask, hand lotion, nail file and some fun treats. You can see those in this post.

Because the theme is crafting, I chose to fill mine with Stampin up! supplies.

IMG_2983 (2)

I absolutely love the Crafting Forever stamp set!

In April of 2017, I had the privilege of demonstrating with this set at Onstage. There are so many ways to use  the stamps in this set.

Here's my video showing how I made these ...

Back from an AMAZING incentive Trip!


Oh what a great trip we had on the Stampin up! Incentive trip! My husband and I enjoyed a seven day Cruise of the Greek Isles and it was honestly like a dream!

Because I know you all helped me earn this trip, I would like to share some of my pictures with you! I have sooo many photos, so I have decided to share them a little each day. Here's my recap of Day #1

Here we are on the plane, ready to go! So excited!


We travelled to Toronto and had a 3 hour stop over and then we flew 8 1/2 hour to Rome. We arrived around 10:00 am the next morning. We didn't sleep a single wink on the plane so we were pretty tired one the 1 hour bus ride form the airport to the Cruise ship Terminal.

Here we are after being up all night LOL...


We made it to the ship and it felt so good to check into our room and have a shower and a little rest.



Stampin up! gives all the achievers a balcony room. It was so nice to wake up and see right out at the ocean every morning.IMG_1304

I could look out at the ocean all day!


Here's a look at the door hangings they put on everyone's doors on the ship! They go through lots of effort to make us feel special. 
After, we freshened up and had a rest, we headed to the hospitality room where all the Achievers get to spin the wheel for a prize every day. 



These we went for a walk around the ship and met some great friends that we have cruised with before! We have missed them!


Stampin up! spoiled us with an amazing spread of food and music at the Sailaway party poolside.


IMG_5724 IMG_5727

 I got to meet up with some more SU friends, whom I hardly get the chance to see. It's great to catch up with them!

Here's Anne, Bonnie and I 

IMG_5734Allison and I...

IMG_5738Brenda and I...


After the party, we returned to find this awesome Pillow gift!


Here's the tag attached... A sneak peek! Black Stampin Dimensionals!!! Say What?


Here's what was inside the bag.. A brand new GORGEOUS Purse!!!


It so beautiful!! I absolutely love that it's a back pack too! Stampin up! really spoils us on these trips!

Day #1 was absolutely amazing!! I am truly grateful to Stampin up!, my Team members and all my customers both online and in person. I could not imagine a better dream come true. 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!







Global Design Project 194 Sketch Challenge for Facebook Friday


For my past facebook Friday Live, I was inspired to create a project using this week's sketch challenge posted over at the Global Design Project site.



For this card, I pulled out my Follow your Art Embellishment kit for some inspiration. This kit has so many wonderful elements. I especially love the felt accents with the white stitching. The felt comes in four different Stampin up! colors, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana and Crushed Curry. Check out those adorable charms and the clips! So much fun!



If you'd like to watch the replay of my Face book Friday live you can click here for my Facebook Business page

Here's the card I made on my live video...



Such a fun and easy card to create! I absolutely love the Button Button embossing folder for the  background texture!

Here's a look at the other colors of felt accents from the kit...


Below you will find a list of all the things I used to create my cards. If you click on any of the images you will see a larger image and you can access my online store to order. So easy!
