CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge

Well, I know I promised this for last Thursday....but life has been pretty hectic around here. We have decided to list our house on the market and move! So between working, decluttering and looking after our son's two dogs....I just couldn't find the time to make a card, until today.  

This is another card challenge from CAS Colours & Sketches for clean and simple cards.This weeks challenge is a colour challenge, and the three colours Cathy gave us were Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst and Island Indigo. Here is my card.



I used the Whisper White Notecards to make this card, with a layer of Berry Burst cardstock underneath, then a top layer of Whisper White cardstock for the sentiment and cut out....which I did using the Daisy punch.  With the punched out piece of daisy, I sponged it in Lemon Lime Twist ink and popped it onto the top using a Stampin Dimensional.  The sentiment from Daisy Delight stamp set was stamped in Island Indigo ink.  Super cute.



This card will be a Make and Take at the Kemptville Women In Business July meeting. My fellow KWIB members will be making this card...can't wait to show them how quick and easy it is, and what a wonderful tool for their businesses. Customer thank you cards.

Just in case next week is as crazy busy as this one....not promising which day I will post.  So just stay tuned and check back often.  

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week.

Paper Players Challenge

What a fabulous long weekend....to start with it was Canada Day on Saturday, and my son was headlining the festivities at Riverside Park in my small town. His performance was amazing, all his aunts, uncles and cousins came from all across Canada to watch. If that wasn't fabulous enough, during his last song, he proposed to his girlfriend right before the fire works went off.  It was magical!

Sunday, we went to a big family BBQ and Monday I relaxed, just having some fun with a card challenge.  Have you ever tried one??  This card challenge was from The Paper Players.  The challenge was to make a card based on a theme...which was a thank you for your favourite teacher or a message of congratulations for a graduating student. Here is my card.



I used two stamp sets for this, Dragonfly Dreams with the matching die's, and part of the sentiment from the May paper pumpkin Sara's kit. The card base was Soft Sky and stamping done on Whisper White

I really enjoying playing along with this challenge....you should give it a try or at least check out the lovely designs on their page.


Stop by on Thursday and I will do another card challenge just for fun.

Birthday Deliveries Week - Card #2

On Tuesday, I showed you a card using the stamp set Birthday Deliveries and a cute little girl standing with her back to us. The designer series paper from this suite, Birthday Memories shows this little girl's front view. The co-ordinating die Birthday Friends Framelits actually cuts her out. I thought it was so cute, I needed to make a card using it. What do you think??


The Soft Sky card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4". I stamped the sentiment in Dapper Denim on a piece of Whisper White card stock that is 4" x 5 1/4". Then glued it onto the card front at a wonky angle, which I trimming off the excess card stock. The little poodle was stamped on scrap Whisper White and coloured in using my blender pens and Crumb Cake ink. The little girl was die cut from the DSP and both adhered to the front of the card using Stampin Dimensionals.  Little enamel shapes were added to the card front to make it pop. Super cute!!

Stop by next week for another sample of my Colourful Cards.

Birthday Deliveries Week - Card #1

With Canada's big birthday almost upon us, I still wanted to focus on birthdays this week. Another fabulous suite Stampin' Up! has introduced in the new annual catalogue, is Birthday Memories. The designer series paper is so cute, very retro, and the stamp set Birthday Deliveries is so very useful...for adults, or children's birthdays. Check out this card, which we made at class on Friday night.



I found this design on Pinterest, totally forget the name of the lady who made it, but I thought it was so cute.  I changed the colours up on mine, using Blushing Bride card stock for the base and stamped the cake's all over the front in the same colour ink. Die cut a Layering Ovals scalloped edge Framelit in Sweet Sugar Plum card stock and stamped the little girl in Blushing Bride ink on a Whisper White oval.  I coloured her in slightly, just around the edged using my Blender Pen. The banner was stamped in Blushing Bride on a scrap of Whisper White and die cut. The sentiment stamped in Flirty Flamingo, then adhered with Stampin Dimensionals.  

So cute for a little girls birthday.  Stop by on Thursday for another sample from Birthday Memories.

Plan With Me - Love Today Planner

On Tuesday I showed you a video of how I set up my Love Today Planner and how I will be using it. As a Memory Keeping Journal.  




Today, I thought I would show you how I plan each upcoming week ....deciding which events to journal about and how I select my decor, stickers, papers and photographs to go inside.   Check out this PWM video below.  Please excuse the fact that my head shows a few times while stamping and colouring...almost redid the video, but thought....nah, you still get the idea.  



This is such a great tool to use for keeping track of things....life in general, fitness, babies first year, wedding planning...the list is endless.  Comment below on what you would use this planner for??

Pop back next Tuesday as I will be showcasing another new stamp set from the Birthday Memories Suite.

Love Today Planner

So for those of you who don't know....I am addicted to paper. Notebooks, planners, card stock, pretty papers, stickers, agenda's.  Hardly surprising then that I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  

I generally use a Happy Planner to keep track of my day to day tasks, upcoming events and family activities.  Decorating it with stickers, stamps and DSP. So imagine my absolute joy, in seeing the Love Today Planner kit in the Stampin' Up! new annual catalogue. Pretty sure I screamed when I first saw it!!

There are so many ways to use it....travel journal, fitness trackers, babies first year, wedding planner and family activities planner.  I thought it would be fun to share my excitement with you, how I set up my planner and what I actually plan on using it for. Check out the video below.





So what do you think??  Is it something you might need in your life??  Its a great deal for $48 as you get so much in the kit.  Plus you can buy refills for it...so its something you can use year after year. 

I plan on doing a monthly video or Plan With Me, on how I set up my month or weekly spreads using pretty DSP, stickers and stamps.  Hope you will follow my Youtube Channel, so as not to miss out on these PWM videos and Colourful Card video's.


Stop back on Thursday for my first Love Today Plan With Me video.

Happy Birthday Week - Card #2

So here we are, spending another Thursday together....thanks so much for stopping by my blog. This week, I am showcasing birthday cards, and am using the stamp set Happy Birthday Gorgeous.



I used the new and devine Lemon Lime Twist card stock for the base.  5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored and folded at 4 1/4".  Then layered a piece of Calypso Corel card stock cut at 1 1/4" x 4 1/4" across the card front sort of close to the middle.  I then stamped the hooray balloon and Hip Hip Hooray sentiment all over the card front using the Lemon Lime Twist Stamp Ink Pad.  Just love this new colour. I die cut one of the larger circles from the Layering Circle Framelit Dies and stamped the images using Rose Red, Calypso Corel and Lemon Lime Twist. Then adhered it to the front using a Stampin Dimensional.  Just love the colours in this card, so bright, so fresh.

Stop back on Tuesday next week for something extra special...hint...its not a card!!

Happy Birthday Week - Card #1

We all need birthday cards, right?  Some of us, more than others...for big birthdays, first birthdays, overseas birthdays...heck even Canada is celebrating a big 150th birthday this year. So I thought I would sample some birthday magic for you this week.



This card is made using Rose Red as a card base, 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4". Then a piece of the fabulous Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper cut at 4" x 5 1/4". Then using a piece of Dapper Denim card stock, I die cut the sentiment using the Happy Birthday Thinlits Die and adhered it to the front using my favourite glue.  Tombow or actually known as Multi Purpose Liquid Glue. So simple and so quick.  Love it.

Stop back on Thursday for another Happy Birthday week card.

Paper Pumpkin Alternative - Card #2

This week is the deadline to sign up for the June Paper Pumpkin - June 10th to be exact. How many of you are tempted??  How many are still not sure??? Check out this sweet alternative I made from the May kit.



I used Crumb Cake for the base, a layer of Very Vanilla card stock, which I stamped with the "sweets" from the stamp set...then layered the extra donut pieces on top, icing and enamel shapes to decorate. I sponged the edges with the Soft Suede ink spot to make them look like chocolate donuts....yum!!

Paper Pumpkin - Alternative #1

Two weeks ago, my May Paper Pumpkin arrived...and with the help of some new pumpkin fans, we put together several of the cards in the kit.  It was such an enjoyable afternoon, which spilled out onto my back deck in the beautiful sunshine as we drank tea and continued to chat.  

One of the things I love doing with the Paper Pumpkin kits, is to see what alternative designs I can come up with, using any left overs in the kit, and some SU additional accessories.  Here is my first one to share with you.


I used one of the card bases, turned inside out.  Cut around the scrap of paper left over from the icing sticker, and coloured it with Crumb Cake marker. Adhered it to the card base, added baby pearls and the banner.  So cute and so quick.

Colorful Seasons Week - Card #2

So how has your week been?  Last night, I went to watch my oldest son play baseball....while we were not sitting on Adirondack chairs, by a fire....hubby and I were still enjoying a pleasant spring evening sitting in our lawn chairs.  So relaxing.  Talking of relaxing, doesn't this card make you feel relaxed too??



I used a Soft Sky card base, then layered with Island Indigo or maybe it was Pacific Point...either will work ha ha. The stamped piece is water colour paper, which I washed with Soft Sky before stamping the branch in Early Espresso and blossoms in Blushing Bride. The fire was Watermelon Wonder and Peekaboo Peach. For all the dimensions and a tutorial on how I put it together...see the video below.



Stop by next Tuesday for some May alternative Paper Pumpkin cards.

Hope you can stop by my New Catalogue Open House this weekend, Saturday June 3 from 10:00am - 3:00pm, in Kemptville, Ontario.  See tab above for all the details.

Colorful Seasons Week - Card #1

As soon as I saw this stamp set in the new catalogue, I knew I just had to have it.  The fact it came with co-ordinating framelits was a bonus....but really, these 24 photopolymer stamps are devine.  Running through all four seasons, spring blossoms, summer flowers and deck chair, fall leaves and winter snowflakes. Such a useful stamp set...and such nice sentiments.  Think my favourite is Just Breathe.  Love it.   Here is my sample for today.



I used thick Whisper White as the card base, layed with 2016-18 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack - Flirty Flamingo.  I stamped the image using both the new stamp set Colorful Seasons and Touch of Texture, using colours: Soft Sky, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo and Basic Black Archival Ink.  The ruched ribbon in Flirty Flamingo added the soft touch.  

Stop by on Thursday for another sample of Colorful Seasons.

Hope you can stop by my New Catalogue Open House on Saturday June 3 from 10:00am - 3:00pm, in Kemptville, Ontario.  See tab above for all the details.
