Mini Accordian Album

I made this for the open house I had back in July. I finally put the picture in.

I used a 12"x12" cardstock and cut it to 4"x12". I scored it at 4 3/4" and 9 1/2" then flip it over and scored it the same. I randomly stamped In The Spotlight along the bottom then I fold along the scored lines.

I cut two 2 1/8 " bashful blue and two pretty in pink cardstock and adhered alternately. The 10" grosgrain ribbon is for the closer. I adhered it then put a flower on top to cover to keep the ribbon a little stable for the long use.

Happy Stamping!

Lunch Bag Brag Album

This album I made a while back using a Simply Scrappin' kit In Full Bloom. It is retired. This is just a sample of what my class will make. We will be using the new Special Delivery Simply Scrappin' kit. I'll post the pictures later. Class is on November 20 at 7pm. You'll get the whole kit plus the lunch bags, accessories and insructions. If you can't make it to the class, no problem. You can order it to go! The cost for this project is $35 (plus shipping, of course if it is to go.)



Happy Stamping!

Memory Paint Cans

I made these paint cans to give away to all the babies born this year and more to come next year. The moms can use it to store all th precious memories through the years for their child.
I put clothes and other baby stuff inside the can. If I have the time (I usually do last minute things) I would make "Thank You" cards to go with it. All the moms loved the cans.

Lovely Trees

Hello! How was your weekend? Mine was fabulous. My husband and I went to a Couple's Retreat in Downtown Vancouver hosted by Metro Baptist Church. This retreat is for couples to get away to take time to be together (especially with little ones running around where there is no quiet time to be together). This year's theme was "Falling in Love" and what a better way to show you a fall card. These trees are indeed very lovely. Fall is so beautiful with the changing colours of the leaves.

Materials Used:
Stamps-Lovely as a Tree, Party Punch
Papers-Rose Red, Hunter Green, Old Olive, Whisper White
Inks-Basic Black, Chocolate Chip, Rose Red, Only Orange, More Mustard
Accessories-Blender Pen, Tag Punch

Happy Stamping!

Christmas Card

I'm love the new Supersize Snowflake and Snow Burst from the Winter Mini Catalgue which is available from Sept 1-Nov 30. It comes in a solid and a hollow snowflakes, two stamps on one block. The one with the words on it I cut it out and mount it to the end of the block. It is easier this way if I want to omit the words or do it in a different colour.

Materials Used:
Stamps-Supersize Snowflake, Snow Burst
Papers-whisper white, mellow moss, soft sky, blue bayou
Inks-blue bayou, soft sky, basic black, mellow moss
Accessories-taffeta ribbon, brads, scallop punch, colluzle cutting system, dazzling diamonds

Happy Stamping!

Almost Settle At the New Home

I'm back online so here are some details on what is happening with the move.

I didn't realize how much "stuff" we had until we moved to this place. It took four truck loads to move most of the stuff and my DH goes back and forth with our van to pick up more things we didn't have time to pack for Saturday's move. We sold a lot of big furniture items and yet we still have too much and no place to put the ones we want to keep. Need to get rid of some more stuff.

I can't believe I had over 10 boxes of stamping stuff. Some of the stamps I haven't use but can't seem to part with them either. All the stamping stuff is still in boxes. They should be out maybe this Friday. Hopefully!

Blog you later.
