Happy Halloween!

Can't even comprehend where this month went.

Last night we began our search of checking out high schools for Andrew.  YIKES!  It's crazy I have to be looking into this now - he's my baby.  Just kidding (but he still kinda is).

 Here is a fun fold Halloween card I made with my Kids Camp a week or so ago.  Who knows when it was, all I know is that November's camp is around the corner and I have a ton to do to get ready for it!

Have a happy and safe Halloween!

Kids Craft Fair prep pics

Mark your calendars as I am in two different craft fairs
1) Sat, Nov 16th - Christmas Craft Fair with products and fun things made by me.  Stocking stuffers, ornaments, gift card holders, cards and more


2) Sat, Dec 7th - Kids Craft Fair with products and fun things made by these talented crafters.  This fair is designed for the "kid buyer" and all items at this fair will be under $10.

One night last week I had 8 eager teen crafters come to my house to help prep for the Kids Craft Fair.

 As you can see there were a lot of happy faces but here are ones where they were busy working.

Bring your little ones to this fair and they will be able to find gifts for Dads, grandparents, teachers and moms too.

Everyday Occasions Card kit

I can't believe it's Friday already!  Where did this week go?  

I have a full weekend planned, what about you?  Scrapbook club, NOEL Canvas Class and Kids Camp on Sunday. In between there I plan to squeeze in Nathan's hockey game too.  

Last week I ordered the new Everyday Occasions Card Kit and today I had a chance to open it up and play.  One word to describe it - WOW!  Just WOW!  What an amazing complete kit and so easy to put together!!  Let me show you what it comes with.

First, a cello wrapped pretty hexagon box.

 Here is all the new goodness PLUS

WOWZERS!  Full colour directions with easy to follow tips along the way.

 Everything in cello packs, all ready for creating.

 Full stack of envelopes and gorgeous card fronts in standard, note card and 3x3 sizes.

 And all the die cut pieces, embellishments, baker's twine, buttons, metal clips, buttons, dimensionals and ink spots.

 Plus the exclusive set Occasions and a clear block.

 This would make a fantastic gift for Christmas for any crafter or non-crafter too!  It literally comes with EVERYTHING you need to make 20 cards that are simply gorgeous!  All you need is a pair of scissors and a glue stick or Snail adhesive.

One thing I noticed is that they are "chunky" cards so not the greatest for mailing but you can easily change up the embellishments to make them more "mail - friendly."

So you're probably wondering what are 20 beautiful cards and envelopes going to cost.  The kit is 36.95 plus tax and shipping but as a special to you if you order before October 31st my cost to you will be $40 including tax and shipping.  With this special price you will also receive a clear box to store your new stamp set and the supplies and directions to make 4 extra cards! 

 24 cards for only $40 and you get to keep the stamp set!  Start your Christmas shopping today!

Check back on Monday to see these beautiful cards!  (And sooner if I get a chance to take photos and post these awesome cards!)

Have a great weekend!

Thankful Tablescapes Scrapbook page

This past weekend my sister helped us take some family photos at Fish Creek and I loved how most of them turned out.  Okay, all of the photos with the kids sans glasses were terrible (eyes closed in ALL of them) but the other ones were pretty good.  So with transition lenses and all, this will be the family photo in our Christmas cards!

I have a small goal for scrapbook club and that is to create ACTUAL pages with my photos on them and so far I'm two for two - September and October!!  There were quite a few nice pics so I wanted to incorporate some of my faves onto one layout.  There are some goofy ones too but those may have to be added to my Project Life book.

 I used the Thankful Tablescapes kit to create this page plus a few doo dads here and there.  I love the stamped sentiment - "the best things in life aren't things"

Thanks for checking in.

Weekly specials - Oct 15-21

Here are this weeks specials!  Contact me ASAP as I have an order going in this week!


Happy Thanksgiving weekend!

Hope you had a fantastic weekend with family and friends!  

We were invited to dinner at our extended families house and it was a great night!  Of course the staples - turkey, mashed potatoes, salad and pumpkin pie but I think we have a new tradition and that's my sisters peanut butter pie.  Rich and delicious!  I'll have to get you that recipe - yum!

Here is the last of the projects from last week's Cardmaker's workshop.

We did two cards using the Six Sided Sampler bundle plus a Halloween treat bag.  Each club member could pick one and then send one to a friend for World Cardmaking Day.  It's nice to send a pick me up or happy mail to someone.

I used the cookie stamps and the sugar cookie recipe included with the cookie stamps.  Plus a little orange food colouring to make them pumpkin like.
Off to continue the craft making maddness upon me!

Wish me luck!

Cardmaker's Club technique - Starburst with Pattern paper


Another quick share as my postings times are all messed up.  Just thank a late hockey game for my excuse :)

Here is the technique we did at my Cardmaker's club last night.  This seems to be all the rage now on Pintrest and in many swaps from Convention.

This technique was actually quite easy (said almost the entire group) and it would be a great way to use up your scraps as it uses very little pattern paper.

Hope you enjoyed my little technique share :)

Enjoy your day today!
