Botanical Gardens - Stamp and Share cards

It's the weekend!  Woo hoo!

I'm excited to scrapbook this weekend but first today Andrew has to have his wisdom teeth pulled - eek!  Fingers crossed all goes well and he heals quickly.

I am on a fancy card kick and so I planned my next demonstrator event around fancy cards. I hope they like them.

 Do you want to come to my demonstrator event? Now is a great time to get in on the fun! I hold monthly Stamp and Share events and stamping with friends is my ALL TIME favourite thing about being a demonstrator. Plus the sneak peeks at the new products is pretty great too!

The starter kit is only $125 and you can choose $195 worth of products with no tax and shipping. Don't delay and get started today!

February WOW Sneak peek - Botancial Blooms

It's almost time for the release of my Feb WOW class.  I have already started taking registration for this class so be sure to check back tomorrow for more photos of these cards! I think they are pretty AMAZING! 

Some have nicknamed this the sleep over class but no worries I'll be doing a ton of prep for this class so you can finish ALL FIVE cards in one afternoon or evening.

Here are this week's specials!

Not for a class, club or special event but actually time to craft for me!  Shocking, I know. You can probably guess I have been looking at old photos, gathering paper and reminiscing a ton! It's been a blast actually.  Wish me luck I actually get some pages complete!  I'll share them with you next week!

Cardmaker's club cards

I'm not sure how these days keep flying by but they are and unfortunately time for blogging in the evening is becoming a pipe dream!

So here I'm finally posting my club projects that we did last night and Tuesday. The Number of Years set is a MUST MUST get! I love how you can personalize the cards for the receiver.

 And for our technique card I decided to make this pop up slider card I found here.    Despite the "challenges" we had to cut and score the card - hee hee, I think everyone enjoyed the final project!


If you love fancy folds then stayed tuned for some sneak peeks at my February WOW class.  It's a WOW for sure!!!

Enjoy the Litle Things - Be Brave

** Oops this didn't post this morning, sorry.

Today is busy day and on top of everything SNOW forecasted!  Ikes!
It's the start of exam time for my oldest son so I sent him off with this message. It was perfect for me too since I have to be the one driving in the snow!
I made the Enjoy the Little Things kit over the Christmas break and I plan on changing the message each week! I'll be posting all the different images you can create.  I love the little easel stand too!

Year in Review scrapbook page

Each year with our Christmas card I send a Christmas letter with some highlights of our year.  We each write a short paragraph about our year and it's always good for a few giggles on what the kids consider "highlights".

We also add some our pics from the year.  I don't keep a hard copy of our letter but I thought I would like to have a keepsake of our annual highlights.  For my January scrapbook club page I created this colourful "Year in Review".

Each of the photos and card stock are 2-3/4 x 2-3/4 and I just arranged them around a base of Basic Black.  I love this layout since it would be great page when you have tons of pics for one event or one theme.  

I am in LOVE with the Number of Years bundle in the Occasions Catalogue. Be sure to add it to you list of MUST HAVES!

One Great Year!

I always love the beginning of things.  The school year, a new notebook or daytimer, starting a new project and the beginning of 2016 is no different!

I LOVED the new Paper Pumpkin project kit I received in December and purchased a few extras to hold a class or as a kit to go! It took me under an hour to assemble everything and it was so much fun!

If you are interested in receiving a kit to go this makes a PERFECT gift for a teacher, co-worker and one for you too!  The calendars are for 2016 so don't delay!

The cost is only $12!
