January - Coffee, cookies and cards

I can't believe it's the end of 2016. Exciting times in store for 2017 - Andrew's graduation, university planning, some trips to Victoria and a big family trip to Thailand in July! Thanks to my amazing team and wonderful customers I have earned the trip to Thailand courtesy of Stampin' UP!

I hope you have a fantastic and safe New Year's celebration this evening.

Here are the next cards for January's Coffee, Cookies and Cards class.  Lots of cookies were made this Christmas season and I'll have some many new cookie recipes to share with you in 2017.

Each card is blank on the inside so you can create your own personalized message.  Customize the birthday card with your own special birthday year,  the dragon fly card could be a thank you, birthday or sympathy and the love card could be a Valentine, anniversary or thinking of you.

Date - Tues, Jan 31
Time - 10am or 7pm
Cost - $15 or free with a qualifying order

Bring a friend who has never stamped with me and receive a coupon for 20% off one item.

Thank you for checking in and sticking with me when my blog posting has been sparse. New Year's resolution, right? :)

Happy New Year!

Halloween Treats are fantastic with these 2x2 clear treat boxes.  And the Cookie Cutter Haloween stamp set is DA BOMB!

The new Cable Knit Dynamic Embossing folder is pretty amazing. You need to try it to believe it.

Pop of Paradise swap card

Another swap card to share! This time a feathered friend instead of a Foxy friend. Are you seeing the flamingo craze as much as I am?

 I love this card from Karen Duke and so great how she paired it with the Swirly Scribbles framelits. Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo such a great summer colour combo too!

I spent much of the day organizing all my holiday catalogues and upcoming classes.  So excited to get these out to you so start checking your mailboxes next week!

Foxy Friends swap card

Hi there!

Finally some nice weather here at home!

I have been lucky to be participating in a swap with some fellow demonstrator friends. 

This funky fold card is from Jenn Tinline using the new Foxy Friends stamp set and A Little Foxy Designer Series paper.

 What I LOVE most about this card is that it folds flat for mailing but is super adorable when you can pop it up to display.

Thanks for checking in.

Affectionately Yours thank you!

Hope you had a great weekend! Good and bad weather which makes for good and bad for card making days :) Some days you want to be outside and others you just want to stamp and get inky!

I was lucky enough to receive this beautiful card yesterday and I'm excited to share it with you.
Created by Deborah S

I love how she stamped the flowers behind the main flower and how it's on Crumb Cake and not white! I'm going to have to try that on my next card. And did you notice the copper embossing powder - WOW!

Hope you have lots of smiles in store for your day today. Thank you Deborah for my lovely card.

Thoughtful Branches - Just Keep Swimming!

YAY, it's Friday!! And that means more Olympics!  Kidding, but not really too.

My days and nights have been consumed with watching and cheering on the Olympians and especially the swimming events.  CRAZY good those ladies in the pool have been!

Enough of my TV watching and back to stamping . . . 

This card is using the Thoughtful Branches stamp set as well but in a slightly different way. The coral is the tree branches.

 Hope you have a fantastic weekend as I think it may even be a bit sunny!

Thoughtful Branches - Thank you

Another gorgeous card made with the Thoughtful Branches stamp set. I saw this card on Susan Itell's blog and just had to CASE it.  I love the simple and clean lines of this card.  

 I love the way she cut a few of the leaves off the large tree to appear like the leaves are falling. Oh no, I've already made a fall card!

Remember the Thoughtful Branches stamp set is only available in August. While supplies last.

Thoughtful Branches - You're in my Thoughts

Happy wet week . . . another one this summer!

Here is another club card that will hopefully inspire you to pick up a stamp today!

 Night two of club is tonight and I hope they enjoy this card. I think it's the perfect sympathy card or just to let you know I'm thinking of you.

Matching framelits!

Cheers and stay dry!

Thoughtful Branches - August special stamp set

Happy Summer! And as you can tell by my lack of blogging (and stamping) for that matter I have been having a great summer.  

This week is club week for me and I have to share a great new stamp set that is only available during the month of August plus samples I have made with this great set!

  Here is one of the cards we made tonight with this set.  Hydrangeas are my favourite flower, well second to tulips.  Plus a fun braided technique for the card spine.

 Here is a close up of this great set plus matching thinlits.

Only available for a limited time so let me know ASAP if you'd like to add this stamp set onto your order.
