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!! 

Cheers

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.

Eastern Beauty Week - Card 2

Who remembers Spirograph?  Or am I just getting old ha ha.  I swear this new stamp set, Eastern Beauty reminds me so much of that.  The designs you can make, the colour combinations...just look at this one for example.


I used several colours, Lemon Lime Twist, Dapper Denim, Fresh Fig, Emerald Envy and Tempting Turquoise stamping on Whisper White card stock, layered with Lemon Lime Twist card stock and Whisper White thick card base.  It was so much fun, twisting and turning the stamps coming up with this design......no wait....what about that tube you could look through and twist while holding up to the light to see the colourful images. What was that called??  Kaleidoscope!! Oh I am going to have so much fun with this stamp set, and so will you.

Have a great weekend,
Cheers

Eastern Beauty Week - Card 1

My new blog schedule of Tuesdays and Thursdays is here, which must mean summer is right around the corner.  At lunch time today, hubby and I were picking up new plants for our back garden, lots more pretty perennials.  Funny thing, I keep thinking of plant colours in Stampin' Up! names....Wisteria Wonder, Tangerine Tango, Pink Pirouette.   My garden will look so colourful this year.

Talking about colourful, just look at this sweet card.


I used one of our notecards in Whisper White and first stamped the circle in Dapper Denim. Then using the Layering Circle Framelits, cut out a hole in the card front, inside the Dapper Denim circle. The sweet little stamps in new colours Fresh Fig and Lemon Lime Twist I scattered around. The sentiment was stamped on the inside of the card, through the circle. To finish off this project, I stamped the front of the envelope in one corner to match the card front. This lovely card design I found on Pinterest and is demonstrator Caroline van der Straatten's masterpiece.  Hope you liked my version.  

Stop by on Thursday for another Eastern Beauty sample.
