Sneak Peek of Blendabilities again

I don't know about you but we're in full exam mode in our house!

We are in the middle Nathan's PAT's for grade 6 and Andrew starts his PAT's next week.   Plus a piano recital last night (they did wonderful) and ball hockey playoffs this week makes for a pretty hectic week of parenting.

Who am I kidding - I love it!  But I can't wait until summer!

Yesterday I had a chance to finally assemble a few of the pieces I had coloured last week (or was it two weeks ago now).

The stamp set I used is called In This Together and I think it's pretty cute.

 That's how Pete and I are going to need to feel this week if we're going to get through a hectic schedule.  

It's almost the end of June!!!  Yahoo!

Loving the Maritime Designer Series Paper

Here is quick card I made with the new Maritime Designer Series Paper.

My goal for this week is to make cards for my Designer Series sampler book.  I love that the colour combos are already chosen for me.

Check out the Maritime pages.

Coastal Cabana, Night of Navy, Real Red and Whisper White

 Another thing to add to your wish lists - Star Framelits!  They are awesome!

Scrapbooking with the new Little Letters framelits


Another weekend down faster than the speed of light :( Of course we had another weekend of hockey (a win and a loss for each of the boys) and a trip to Peter's :)  I {heart} hockey games at SAIT!  One more weekend to go with playoffs, two full week of exams and then we are DONE!  Bring on summer!

I had club this weekend and we did a fun page with the new Maritime Designer Series paper and some of my hand carved fish stamps.  The Little Letter framelits make for quick and easy titles on a page and even ones with lots of letters.

 Thanks for checking in!

Wanna peek?


I can't believe how fast this week has gone!  Sorry for the inconsistent blog posts but yesterday we had Andrew's grade 9 farewell and Nathan's last band concert for grade 6.  June is always crazy!

But . . .  guess what arrived.

My first new catalogue order!!!! OMG, I love everything!

New rubber to mount and play . . .
Little Letter Thinlits are soo cute!  3/4" tall but I can see these used a ton on my scrapbook pages.

1/4" Cotton ribbon in such amazing colours.   I can see great card colour combos coming from just these ribbon colours.  Join the share and receive 2 yards of each 12 colorus for just $22
 Unfortunately NO time to play last night but I'm hoping for a teeny tiny bit of time at least for a few seconds of craft time this weekend.  Hockey (of course), Kids camp and my niece's baby shower kinda jam packs the weekend but oh what fun!

Have a great weekend!
