Christmas Gathering 2015


The table is set…..
the creative idea has been met

The music is playing,I’m excited…just saying


The clock is tickin’ awaywaiting for you to come this way!


See you soon ~ see you soon :-)



....yup...my cheesy little reminder for my girls that I emailed them 
before our Christmas Gathering :-)  






Do you recognize the DSP ~ I had it dry mounted at Costco as a gift give away during our evening.
I created two different gift boxes, one using the Box Punch Board and one following a template for a pizza box and inside each of these sweet boxes, were the following little gift tag cards!



These were just a small token for each of my girls :-) I appreciate them all so much ~ I have the best bunch of gals that come over and create with me on a regular basis ~ I am truly blessed! (insert heart)



They also went home with a little luminary that I created for them!



And I forgot to take a picture of the table after everyone brought a little something to share ~ did we eat!!! yum, everything was delicious ~ thanks ladies, you are the best!!! (insert many hearts)


Thanks so much for popping by, have a lovely day

~ Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to one and all ~

CTD#364, STB, RS#185

Our one and only little girl turns 2 next week! Katie is a sweet little cutie


I found three fabulous challenges to play along with and thus began creating Katie's Birthday card!
The colours for Colour Throwdown #364 were prefect for her card, then I found this great sketch at Retro Sketch #185 and Seize the Birthday of course!  Thanks for these wonderful challenges ladies ~ oh you know you want to join in the fun, so get inking!!!




 So I flipped my card on it's side ~ pulled out my Prisma Pencil crayons, just to add a wee splash of color after I cut my image and frame using the Circles Collection Framlits~ I inked up the heart from Work of Art and created my DSP and used the die cut from Banner Framlits, played with my new EF Softly Falling (love it) ~ super sweet and simple birthday card 


Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you enjoyed your visit ~ have a wonderful weekend!

There's NO Place Like HOME!!!

It's been SO long since I've posted, I'm still trying to get the hang of our new place, oh, and I must say....LOVE IT!!!!!  Creating is not as easy at it was in my 1600 sq ft studio, but it works!!!  My punches are stored in large Rubbermaid bins under our bed and everything else is stored in large Ikea bookcases ~ everything is either in a bin, drawer or behind a door ~ so nothing looks like a craft room, it does force me to be VERY organized, which I am...but also VERY tidy with everything put away after, that does not come easily to me, but I'm working on it ~ once I'm feeling more settled with ALL corners put away, I'll post pictures of our new place ~ in the mean time, here is a picture of what we get to look at all day long!!!




~ I had so much fun creating this card for our daughter's birthday ~
Out came some new toys and away I went ~ also loosely followed the sketch from FMS203


and because this is a Birthday card, it also qualifies for Seize the Birthday!


Thanks so much for popping by ~ I hope you enjoyed your little visit :-)

Card Base ~ Very Vanilla 11 x 4 1/4 ~ score at 5 1/5
Crumb Cake 4 x 5 1/4 ~ Stamp Harwood using Soft Suede ~ adhere to Card Base using Tombow
Soft Suede 4 1/2 x 3 1/2 ~ Run through Big Shot using Hearth & Home Framelits Dies ~ set aside
Very Vanilla 2 1/2 x 3 ~ Stamp fall scene from Happy Scenes on the top left corner about 1/2 down using Staz On ~ color as desired using sponges & Blender Pens ~ always start with lighter colors, then graduate into the darker ones ~ using the 1/2 circle punch, punch out to use as a mask to create the moon, sponge using So Saffron & Cajun Craze, now cover the moon with the punch out to sponge the sky as desired! Adhere to stamped Crumb Cake using Tombow, BE SURE YOU HAVE PLACED THIS WHERE DESIRED ACCORDING TO YOUR WINDOW FRAME!
Lightly sponge Window Frame where desired, apply Dimensionals to the back, adhere over your Very Vanilla scene

Using a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes, stamp onto bottom Window Frame portion using black Momento, lightly sponge if desired ~ apply Dimensionals, adhere under your Window Frame!

Counting Down!!!

Moving day from our tiny 961 sq ft condo into our 1400 sq ft condo is almost upon us ~ projected moving date is June 15 ~ our cabinets were delivered yesterday, flooring is in our unit, things just need to be put together...we are OVER the TOP excited to get settled once again...and we have another peek at our place later today ~ I'll post pictures on my next post...in the mean time, this is what it looks like on the outside ~ the view in front of the Condo and a shot across the river ~ our balcony in the second from the top on the right hand side, looking over the river ~ woohoo...get to work people! 17 days and counting!!!

Now in the mean time, while I had everything out and putting things away is not as easy as it used to be...so I stayed with the same color theme as my last post ~ soft and sweet ~ here are the thank you cards that I came up with ~ loving the soft feel of this color combo, although taking the picture isn't the easiest ~ what do you think!



Thanks for the quick little visit ~ I hope you enjoyed your time here ~ now to do a little packing!!! Hope to see you soon ~ Have a great day :-)

CCMC356, Seize The Birthday and Our Balcony ~ GREAT Combo!

The BEST afternoon ever ~ sitting on our balcony and creating ~ talk about relaxing! I found these   challenges at Create With Connie & Mary & Seize The Birthday ~ and so I got right to work!

CCMC352 & CTS120

The season of showers & weddings are upon us...I have a weekend of weddings showers, so I peeked in my stash of cards...yup....just what I thought...so last night I threw a CAS card together...is it wrong to have the same card for two different showers ~ the brides don't know each other and the ladies attending will be different at both showers...so yes...I cheated!
I found two great challenges that gave me my starting point ~ Create with Connie & Mary have this great colour challenge and then I followed the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch .... thanks so much ladies for all that you do in helping us with a great place to start ~ THANKS ~ 


I do find CAS quite difficult as I'm used to more layers...but I am pleased with the out come of my shower card! what do you think?


Thanks so much for popping by and having a peek ~ I hope you enjoyed your visit :-)
~ enjoy your day ~

Fun Fun Fun!

I had the BEST day EVER today ~ my girlfriend came over at 10:15am and the creativity was flowing ~ my girlfriend made two amazing cards (should've taken a picture of us creating)...I love watching her create ~ out with the sketch she's wants to follow ~ a little tweak here and another there and there it is ~ another STUNNER...and yes, should have taken a picture ~ DUH!!!  Thanks for the best day my friend ~ I am blessed beyond words :-)

and then I found a sweet sketch to follow, although it wasn't open any longer, but I was on a roll and lovin' the sketch and the card that I was CASing .... thanks for your amazing card LeAnne ... I hope you're okay with me using your card for inspiration ~ your card is absolutely stunning ~ love your creativity so much...so wonderful to see what you share! Thanks

So here's my cards that were inspired by LeAnne's card and the sketch at Just Add Ink


I created each of these just a bit different ~ the top card has a crunched tilted panel (don't care for that) and used the Perfect Polka Dot EF (love that)! So I think I'll recreate this again, but next time I'll use the embossing folder, sponge my edges without distressing them...let's see if I like that even better ~ what a great day of creating ~ 


thanks for popping by, I hope you enjoyed your time here ~ have a great day ~

SR#268 & Retro Sketches #154


What a fun day of creating I had ~ knew I wanted a birthday card but didn't have a starting place so I went on a hunt to find the challenges that would fit with the Big Day stamp set ~ I found this great sketch to follow from retro sketches #154 
and then this wonderful color challenge at Stampin' Royalty #268  

 










I can't believe this is the first time I've used the Large Polka Dot EF ~ I fussy cut around the banner and used Dimensionals to give it some depth ~ coloured each letter in CAKE to go along with the color challenge and then added Crystal Effects to each letter ~ I am pleased with the finished card, but it does look much nicer IRL

I enjoyed a wonderful day of creating and found three great challenges to follow ~ you should jump in on the fun ~ first I found this wonderful sketch at the Friday Mashup! great sketch Avery! Thanks!!! Dropped in on Connie & Mary and found a great color challenge and then popped in at Seize the Birthday and joined them again...thanks girls for these great challenges!




I am loving the new Lotus Blossom stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue, oh and I love the that honeycomb from the Butterfly Basics stamp set too...and Sequins...and Gorgeous Grunge...these are MUST haves in my creative corner!!!
Here is the birthday card that I created ~ I was very pleased with the card!



I looked for my Lost Lagoon Stamp Pad, but couldn't seem to find it...must have gotten lost in the move, or maybe, I don't even own it...so I used Bermuda Bay ~ hope that's okay girls ~ I'm really pleased with the outcome of this birthday card ~ jump in and join in the fun!!

ARRRHHH ~ FMS & STB

ARRRHHH....Two Pirate cards back to back...how fun is that?


This little monkey is having a birthday in a couple of weeks and he is also into Jake the Pirate, so of course we have to buy him a Jake the Pirate Ship (shhhh) and I needed a card to go along with the theme of the party ~ can't wait for Lucas to get his gift and matching card!
 Happy 2nd birthday      sweet one ~ xoxo
How fun to find two amazing challenges to go along with my card ~ this sketch at Freshly Made Sketch # 171 was perfect for my card, I took my three banners and gave them a bit of a slant and then topped it off with this fun Happy Birthday Banner, I then fussy cut this and sponged the edges! and then the Seize The Birthday birthday was "Anything Goes"...bonus!  Thanks for these wonderful challenges...and there is still time to play, so why don't you jump in and join the fun :-)



Here is Lucas' birthday card, the texture on the Basic Black CS is a little hard to see, the card looks so sweet IRL ~ gotta love that owl punch...it's a must have in my mind...do you have one! Don't wait, if you don't ... not sure if this will be going forward in the next catalogue...don't be disappointed!


Thanks so much for popping by, I hope you have a wonderful weekend! If you have ANY questions, don't hesitate to ask, I'd love to help you!
