Mag case

Hi again!
One of the many things I love about being a SU demo is our monthly magazine we get. It is chock full of ideas, techniques, art projects etc....
I 'cased' this card idea from our latest magazine. I made the button using 4 layers of black c/s and crystal effects are on top. I stamped a bunch of images from 'Define your Life' stamp set and them punched them out using my scallop circle punch.

Thanks for dropping by,

Bride & Groom DSP

Hi again, thanks for stopping by!
Here is a total case I did for my club this month. I loved the whole look of this card. I did suggest the club ladies put their butterflies where they wanted, plus some ladies sponged Rich Razzleberry ink as well as Barely Banana as well...(kinda like my previous card I shared on here with the yellow/pink combo? I love how you can change the Bride and Groom paper to suit what ever colour you need! Can you say 'versatile'!

As always, happy stampin'

Thrift store find

Hi there!
Well its the end of the month so its time to share what my club ladies made this month.

The ladies punched 5 flowers out of some old Nursury Rhyme books that I owned and also bought at the local thrift store. It was neat as each card had a different look, depending on the pages used. I love the corduroy brads too! The Medallion stamp is inked in versamark for a subtle look.
Happy stamping,

Card share


Here's a card I recently made to showcase some of the techniques we're playing with at my March clubs this month. I love the Bride and Groom paper as its so elegant!
I got my ideas for these techniques from Patty Bennett's awesome blog! Thanks Patty!

Have you stamped today?

Palm Springs

As promised here are a few pictures of our recent trip to Palm Springs....hard to beleive just a week ago right now I was laying in the sun....actually its not so bad as its a gorgeous day here in BC. It was a bit disappointing the weather this year there in CA. Only reached the mid 70's and most days there was such a strong, cool wind...brrrrr! My girls and hubby didn't mind as they stayed in the heated pool for hours but for little guy Jacob once his bathing suite was cold he liked to walk around in the wading pool and it was just to chilly most times. We still had a wonderful holiday thought. One day it poured rain so we went to the Children's Museum there. AWESOME! Also revisited the Living Desert and fed the giraffes....All in all a great family time and the kids did well on the drive. We put just over 3000 miles on our Nissan Quest!

Hope you're having a fabulous day!

i'm back

Happy March everyone!

Its been awhile....The kids went back to school today after having 2 weeks off. We decided to drive to Palm Springs this year which was a first for us as last year we flew there. I was hesitant but all in all in went really well!!! I will share some photo's next post after I upload them. We only got back a day and a half ago so lots of catching up to do!

I just wanted to share the 2 club projects we made in February. I used quite a bit of Ocassions Mini catalog product.

The red and pink card showcases the rock n' roll technique which was new to some of my new stampers in my clubs. And the other card uses the wheel to make a background. I just put a piece of rectangle c/s in the middle and wheeled over. Before removing the piece of c/s I sponged the edges in the matching ink. (in this case, old olive) When you lift the centre c/s you are left with a crisp, white matt which you can stamp directly on, or in the case of this card I created we put a double matt over it.

If you ever have any questions please feel free to ask away.

Look forward to sharing more soon! Thanks for dropping by!
