bday craft

Hi there...
These adorable books are the craft that the girls at Mikayla's 12th bday party made earlier in the month. I found the awesome link at Becky Higgins website for About Me journals. She has one for adults and one for teens....Anyway even though I loved the idea I wasn't sure about how to put the pages together....didn't want to pay to have them bound. Sooooo I was SUPER excited to find these binders at Staples that were the perfect size! Plus they had the area in the front to put a piece of paper of course the girls had to personalize them! With all my Saleabration orders in Jan/Feb i've been ordering the Ice Cream parlour paper pack. That way each girl had their own sheet of 12x12 cardstock stickers and coordinating paper to match! I used my clear block and clear mount alphabet set for them to stamp their names. It came together very quickly (1 hr at the party) and they took the extras home and they could do the writing at home too. I believe its 27 pgs total. Each pg of my sample book (Kylie's) has some type of sticker on it too so the 1 pg was plenty!
Hope you liked this idea,

last Make n' Take

Well, here is the last project made at the Vancouver Regionals that I attended at the end of February. SU really outdid themselves this time around as the projects were beautiful and we got to use many accessories. Its always fun to see them in real life before buying....
I LOVE the seam binding that is found on pg 16 as its so light and easy to work with. Also good if mailing as it doesn't weight down your card.

I'll be posting some card fronts swaps that my fellow team members rec'd at Regionals next.

Happy Stampin'

simple and elegant

Here is another make n take from the Regionals I went to.
We each received the set - Nature Walk which can be found on pg 27 of the Occasions Mini catalog. I love the idea of taking a SU marker and colouring the white rosettes (pg 16). Its always a nice touch to stamp an envelope to match as well...don't you agree?

Sorry for not posting earlier but we had a power outage monday morning and our desktop fried :( Anyway....after a few days at the computer dr, a new power supply added we are all good to go!

Here is one of the make n take's we made at the Vancouver Regionals last Saturday!!!! The projects were really over the top so we stamped as much as we could given the timeframe there, and brought the rest home to finish. I was proud of myself as for once I set aside time the day after Regionals and completed ALL the make n takes...before I put the supplies away! Anyway this was one of my uses lots of neat accessories. Hard to make out but there is dazzling diamonds around each of the circles with the letter on it. Can you see all the neat accessories on the close ups?????? Posting more this week so stay tuned!!!

White Crayon resist

hello again, thanks for dropping by.
Y'know when you see a card on a stampers blog and you just are in awe, and you instantly fall in love...well I had that happen when I saw this card. You can find the original on stampinfunwithselene's blog! I love the colours Wild Wasabi and Baja Blue together. I purchased the Baja Blue seam binding for this card (and clubs) and its so lightweight and easy to use. We also use the Easter Blossom stamp set, and the Springtime Vintage designer paper.
This card showcases the White Crayon resist technique. An oldie, but a goodie in my opinion. So easy, and so elegant.
Hope you like it!
