Blogging Break

Well, my laptop is broken. I do all my stamping creations and blogging with it. I lost all my files. Boo hoo! It depends on how long the British Columbia teacher strike will be my husband (he's not a teacher) will have to work part time. Not much income will be coming in so I will not be getting a new laptop anytime soon. And my son's laptop was broken few months back. He needs a laptop for school. He is using his dad's right now. So that's 2 laptops down and 3 people sharing one. Also, my Canon DSLR camera was broken a couple of months back. Yes, a certain teenager broke it. No, my son didn't do it. He is a responsible young man. One of his friends did it. Now my son has to save money for a new one. He loves photography and he could have use that as one of his electives for school. Now he can't do that. Because of all of our gadgets broken at the same time I've decided to take a blogging break. Not sure how long that will be. Saving money with one income is not easy. Will take me awhile. Anyway, enjoy visiting my old posts. I'll be back some day.

Butterfly Wedding Card

A monochromatic wedding card for a couple getting marry. The bride favourite colour is green so this is the card I made for them.



I died cut the heart using 2 hearts from the Hearts Collection Framelits Die. I put the small heart in the middle of the bigger heart and cut them out at the same time.



The butterfly was from the Simple Friendship stamp set. I was debating if I should have 2 butterflies on this card but I ended up leaving it the way it is. I love the line of pearls at the bottom of the card. Hope calls them doggy paws. If you cut the big pearl with some small pearls that's what you'll get. She's funny. She sees things that no one sees.

Paper Bag Packaging

Hello stampers! I'm trying to use these flat brown paper bags I have for awhile. I want to put treats in them to give to people on their birthday. I don't think I'm doing a good job at it. Not very creative in this kind of thing.


I stamped butterflies at the bottom of this bag. Tie a "happy birthday" tag with a twine and wrap it around the bag.



I stamped birds all over this bag and adhere the "happy birthday" tag to the bag. I then tie a baker's twine at the top of the bag.

Well, that's the best I can come up with for now. Will have to try to make more different ones to get better at it.

Camping Trip Album/Journal

Hello stampers! Wow, it has been a month since I last blog. I've been busy altering dresses and away a lot.
I volunteered for 2 weeks at Camp YES! and then went to our yearly family camping trip. I think I'm all camped out for now. It is always fun camping but tiring at the same time.



 I made this album for my girls. They request for one every year so that they can record our family camping trip. I love reading what they wrote and drew about the trip.



I stamped each and every pages in the album. I leave the cover and inside pictures the way they are so that my girls can colour them how ever they want them to.

Butterflies Thank You Cards

Hello stampers! I needed "thank you" card so I made 2 different butterfly cards. I made one in blue and one in peach colours. These were fast and easy to make.


The big butterfly on this card was made by tracing the biggest butterfly on the butterflies die cut pieces onto a pattern paper and then cut out. Easy pessy. I tied a baker's twine to the pattern paper butterfly just for looks. It looked kind of plain without it. I don't have a blue baker's twine so I had to use what I have.



This card is pretty much self explanatory.  I like the simplicity of this card yet pretty.

Love Wedding Card

Hello stampers! This card is for a couple getting marry this Saturday. So many weddings this year of the people I know.

Just a simple wedding card for the couple. The bride like it simple and I made it in her favourite colour, navy blue. The picture doesn't show up as that colour. I helped altered one of the bridesmaid's dress and made a very, very simple veil for the bride. I think I'm done making or alter for weddings for now. I can start crafting! Yay!

Wedding Favours

Few! All done! Over 200 of these milk cartons for a wedding this weekend. Normally it doesn't take me long to make these but it did. Couldn't do much at a time because my right fingers was in pain. The pain was not from making these. The pain might be from the whiplash back in November. The whiplash does funny things to my body. The doctor can not figure out what is causing the pain so he sends me to see a specialist. I'm seeing one this Thursday. Can't wait to find out what is causing the pain.


The colours for the wedding are yellow and blue. Nice combinations. I love it!

60th Birthday Gift

This past weekend was a friend's 60th birthday. I made a masculine frame art for him.



I love the The Open Sea stamp set. I use it a lot. I wish Stampin'Up! still sell the Nautical Expedition DSP. I'm running out soon.



I made the inside to match the frame. It was the perfect frame for an ocean theme.

Thank you for stopping by! Happy Stamping!

I made a pretty box to hold the frame. Tied it with matching ribbon and added a flower to the middle. A nice packaging look.

Wedding Favour Milk Carton Boxes

Hello stampers! I made some samples for a friend to look at. She want me to help her make some wedding favour boxes. She chose milk carton boxes and the wedding colour will be blue. My favourite colour so it was easy to do.


I did the circle scallop design with 2 hearts in the circle for this one. The lily of the valley is stamp in Soft Suede colour.


This one is a scallop square with the word love on it. I stamp the lily of the valley a little lower than the one above and also stamp it in Soft Suede ink.


This one is different from the 2 above. I stamp the flowers from the Elements of Style stamp set in Bashful Blue ink and wrap a nice lacy blue card stock around the milk carton.

I hope she doesn't have a  hard time picking which one to use because I can't decide which one is better. I love all 3 of them.

Apple Truck Birthday Card

Good day! Another truck card from the Countryside stamp set. I coloured the truck red using a blender pen. After the colour dried up it looks like pink instead. It looks nice anyway.

Easter Chick Lindt Chocolate Box

A cute little treat box for Easter. I filled the box with some Lindt chocolates. One of my favourite chocolates.


I used the A Good Egg stamp set for the main image. Such a cute little chick!



At first the chocolate eggs was rolling around inside the box so I decided make a piece of card stock with 3 holes for the eggs stay in place. I didn't have a bigger hole punch for the eggs to sit on so therefore they were put upside down inside the box. Oh well, the chocolates still tastes the same anyway.

Fabulous Florets Birthday Card

Hello stampers! First day of spring break week for my kids. They only get one week where as the public school gets 2 weeks of spring break. We went out for dim sum and then waited for Faith to finish tubing with her friends. We were going to go for a family outing but it was kind of windy and cold. The sun was shining bright though. Also, time doesn't permits. We will need to be back home in time to get ready for the Spring Revival Meeting at our church at night. It'll be too much of a rush so we decided not to go. I always look forward to hear Dr. Goetsch preach for the meeting. He's funny and I love to hear the story he tells that goes with the message he preaches.

I made a birthday card with spring colours to brighten up my day. I'm getting tired of the gloomy and wet weather. I used the Fabulous Florets stamp set for the flowers on the card and the Medallion stamp for the background on the card. Hope this card will bring you joy and a smile when you visit here.

Countryside Blue Truck Thank You Card

A masculine card using the Countryside stamp set. Such a cute truck with apples in the back. I love apples and used to decorate my house with apple decorations. I no longer have apple decors anymore but still love to eat apples though. I love granny smith apples. I love the crunchiness and the sourness of it. Yum!

Valentines Boxes For The Teachers

I made some boxes for the school teachers. There  are only 3 teachers so it wasn't a lot to make for.



 I used the Petal Cone Die to make the box. Do you that you can still get this die? Go to Stampin'Up! website and it is under clearance rack section. Look for this die. It is on sale while supply last. I do recommend to get this die. There is so much you can do with it. It is worth your money.




I punched two holes at the top of the boxes and tied them with a tinsel tassel. I think that what's called. It is something I have for a long time so I don't remember the name of it.



I filled each boxes with yummy jujubes.

Thank you for visiting my blog! Happy Stamping!
