Easter Treats

Happy Easter my friends! I found this adorable project by Dani Didzena and I just had to CASE it! Dani has a great tutorial - check it out! I didn't have the stamp set she used, but I used Endless Birthday Wishes and Crazy About You to create a simple "Happy Easter" message using Old Olive and Archival Black.
I used the yummy Watermelon Wonder 1" Stitched Satin Ribbon from the 2016 Occasions Catalogue cinched with a little Linen Thread.
I used the Large Oval Punch to create the hole for the chocolate bunny to sit in. These little treats were so simple to create but are super cute and easy to mass produce! 

I hope you had a fabulous Easter weekend!

Paper: Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral, Pink Pirouette

I used the beautiful Stampin' Up! Hostess set Happy Birthday, Everyone and the new stamp set Grateful Bunch from the 2016 Occasions Catalogue.

Happy Mail!!

Happy Anniversary to me! Two years ago I joined the Stampin' Up! family, and today I received a card from the Stampin' Up! Canada Home Office in recognition! What a wonderful surprise! I must say, I send homemade cards regularly to family and friends around every holiday and for birthdays, but I very rarely receive any - it made my day - my week!
What are you waiting for? Ink up your stamps and create! It only takes a few minutes and can really make a difference in someone's day...don't just stash your projects away in a box...send them, give them! Spread the joy! Receiving a card is SO special. People don't print out emails or text messages when you show your appreciation or wish them a happy birthday....but a card can be displayed and kept forever!

You too can join this wonderful, caring company! You can join anytime, but joining during Sale-A-Bration is a no-brainer with even MORE free products in your starter kit! For only $125 you will get $195 of products of your choosing, and it will be shipped to you for free! Contact me to find out more!

Thank you Stampin' Up! for recognizing my anniversary with you. You have enriched my life in SO many ways, and it is my goal to enrich the lives of many, many more.

Going, Going, Gone!

With the release of each Annual Catalogue Stampin' Up! releases a new set of In Colours. These are 5 trendy colours that will be available for 2 years and complement the other 4 colour families (Brights, Subtles, Regals, and Neutrals) to keep things fresh and exciting! This year we have to say goodbye to the 2014-2016 In Colours including Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, and Tangelo Twist.
I am going to be so sad to see these beautiful colours leave our SU line-up! They quickly became favorites of mine and mixed and matched many other colours in our collections so perfectly. All products in this colour collection (washi tape, DSP, ribbon, etc.) will be retired at the end of our current catalogue on May 31, 2016; however, I can guarantee they will be sold out loooong before that date. Now is the perfect time to stock up on your favorites while you can still earn FREE Sale-A-Bration items for the next 2 weeks! Head over to my online store to get your ink refills, paper, and more in these beautiful colours before they are gone!

Easter Egg Cut Out

I think Easter is my favorite holiday - not that I am super-religious or anything, but I just love the spring colours, the cute bunnies and chicks...and chocolate of course! Here's another Easter card I made recently, CASE'd from US demonstrator Tami White.
The stripes were made using the super-versatile set called Work of Art which is a stamp set I received for free during convention in Salt Lake City in 2014 - I hope it's going to stick around! In April the new annual catalogue will be revealed to demonstrators and the retiring list will be released. There's so many great sets in the annual catalogue that sadly tend to get "a little less air time" with the fabulous Occasions catalogues SU releases in the fall and spring! What stamps are on your "please don't leave" list?
Don't forget to choose your free Sale-A-Bration goodies by the end of March with every $60 purchase!
Happy Stampin'!

Sale-A-Bration Easter Chick for SUO #143!

Can you believe there's only 3 weeks left of Sale-A-Bration?!! It's such a wonderful time of the year, when you can choose FREE GIFTS with every $60 purchase! This cute little chickie is from the free SAB set Honeycomb Happiness.
 I did a little paper piercing with the chick by first stamping him (or is it her?!) on Whisper White cardstock and then a second time on Daffodil Delight cardstock, then using my paper snips to cut each one out and adhered them together; it adds a little dimension and texture along with his Pumpkin Pie beak and feet. I used my Extra Large Oval Punch to punch "eggs" from the It's My Party DSP stack - it isn't just for birthdays! As soon as I saw the challenge over at SUO Challenges, #143,I knew I wanted to enter - the theme is "Easter Fun" and I love everything Easter!

Head over to my online store so you can choose Honeycomb Happiness as your free gift before it's gone in 3 short weeks! Happy Stampin!

Happy International Scrapbooking Day!

Scrapbooking has been around for decades, and March 4 is International Scrapbooking Day! Scrapbooking is all about preserving memories with photos, letters, keepsakes, etc. and is immensely popular all over the world. I began my papercrafting journey with traditional scrapbooking close to 20 years ago and I am ashamed to say I quickly lost interest. I found it VERY time-consuming and overwhelming and only completed a handful of pages over the years. While I love the look and idea of scrapbooking, I just never found the time, like so many other people.

Project Life was created by Becky Higgins many years ago. It is a simplified method of memory keeping and scrapbooking utilizing pocket pages, and Project Life by Stampin' Up! was introduced a couple of years ago. To be honest, I had never heard of Project Life before SU partnered with them, and I am hooked! It is crazy-simple, super-fun, and still gives you the look and personalization of scrapbooking. Better yet, with Project Life by Stampin' Up! everything coordinates! The cards match SU paper, ink, embellishments, etc. Here's a quick intro video:

What's even better, you can combine traditional scrapbook pages with pocket pages to highlight a few special pictures! Here's a page I made of our new kitten Felix who we brought home in June last year. With just a few cards and accessories from the Moments Like These collection, this page came together quickly.

Isn't he cute?! He was only 6 weeks old in these pictures!

Check out the Project Life by Stampin' Up! collection in my online store - there are albums, thinlits, framelits, and much, more more! Be sure to check out the clearance rack too - there's some Project Life by SU stuff there too for over 50% off!

Have a wonderful weekend!
