Tag: 2018 Occasions Catalogue


Hi and welcome to this tropical post!  I played around with the Waterfront stamp set and gave it a bit of a tropical feeling.  I’m sure most of us would like a little tropical weather right now!

This is a great stamp set and can be found on page 48 of the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  It was easy to add that piece of designer paper from the Delightful Daisy package for the background so it would highlight that soft tropical beach.

You could make this pretty stamp set a part of your collection just by Hosting your own stamping party.  You can also earn Free selections from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue with qualifying sales at your party.  Want more info?  Contact me so we can talk.

Here’s the full list of products that I used to create today’s card.

Happy Stamping!


Happy Monday and welcome as I start the week off with a little Birthday Wit!

The Birthday Wit stamp set(Page 9 Occasions Catalogue)has some really funny greetings and I love the one I used on today’s card.  Yup, sometimes I forget a birthday and this greeting is perfect to let that person know that I am thinking of them!

I wanted to make this one for the guys and followed along with Freshly Made Sketches for this simple layout.

Of course, I couldn’t forget to use the Celebrate You Thinlits dies that are just one of the great Free selections from the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration Catalogue!

By the way……..this is the 4th card that we will be making in my Wednesday, January17th card class!  Sign Up Here.

Here’s the full list of “ingredients” for today’s card.

Hope to see you on Wednesday for some stamping fun!


Sunshine and a little rain make rainbows and today’s card shows that perfectly.

I had a ton of fun using the Sunshine & Rainbows bundle.  The Rainbow Builder Framelits dies made it easy to create that colourful rainbow.  All of the curved pieces in the framelits package fit very nicely together!   And….if you look very closely you will see that I added the new Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes to highlight just a few of those falling raindrops.  It was so much fun to create this pretty card!

Here’s the full list of everything I used to create today’s rainbow card.

Happy Stamping!


I’ve got some sweet treats for today compliments of the A Good Day stamp set from the Occasions catalogue.

These sweet images are great for a somewhat tropical feel since we’ve all been having some pretty nasty weather lately.  Coincidently, the card base is Bermuda Bay which really says warm and tropical!

Note that cute little wooden embroidery hoop on the centre image!  I used a few drops of our tough Liquid Multipurpose Glue to adhere the image and then added Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it up on the card front.

Many colour families of Stampin’ Write Markers were used to colour each image and I also added just a touch of Wink of Stella to put a shine on the ice cubes in each glass.

Here’s the full list of products for you.

Have a great Stamping-ly perfect day!


Do you have a special calendar that sits on your desk or crafting table?  Do you fill it with great ideas to fill your schedule?

If not, I invite you to create one with me over the next 3 months starting on Tuesday, January 9, 2018.

We will start by creating pages for January, February, March and April and then do the next 4 months in February and finish up in March.

These pages measure 4″ wide by 6″ long so won’t take up too much space.  I’m excited to share this class with you and look forward to using several new stamp sets and accessories to add some extra pop to each page.

See my Class Calendar to Sign up and to also check out the rest of my schedule.

Take care and Happy Stamping!

Happy Stamping!


This Beautiful Peacock is, quite simply beautiful!  It’s a new Sale-A-Bration stamp set that lets you create some great projects like this card.

It’s a 2-Step stamping set so you can add extras to that peacock image!  I added the “tail” image in Lemon Lime Twist and topped it off with some Garden Green for a little extra pop.  After inking up the image, I stamped it off so it would add just a touch of the darker green.  The same was done with the sprays of leaves.

All you need to do to get this set is spend $60 starting on January 2, 2018!

Here’s the list of products for you.

Today’s card shows the dragon image from the Magical Day stamp set and is the perfect birthday card for my daughter.

She has never lost her love for dragons so I’m pretty sure that she will love this card.  Following along with Freshly Made Sketches

made it easy to add some new papers that are coming your way in the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  The stamp set and matching papers are truly magical and fun to work with.  I had fun using our Stampin’ Blends to colour that “ferocious” dragon and those flashes of flames!

Here’s the list of products for you,  Please remember that the stamp set, Designer paper and glimmer paper won’t be available to purchase until January 3, 2018. 

Thanks so much for visiting and Happy Stamping to you.


It’s Friday and a good day to start off the weekend so I thought that this cute and colourful card would start things off on the right foot!

The Paper Players posted a Colour Challenge that had me scratching my head a bit, but the new and coming to you soon, stamp set, A Good Day worked perfectly.  The colours we were to use are Melon Mambo, Powder Pink, Garden Green and Lemon Lime Twist, so I used our Stampin’ Write Markers in every colour family to amp up all of those sweet little critters!


Just wanted you to know that Stampin’ Up! will be taking time off over the holidays so there will be No Shipping December 25-26, 2017 and December 29 to January 1, 2018.  You can still place an order, but just know that the wait time to receive it will be a little longer than usual.

Take care, have an excellent weekend and don’t forget to get a little stamping done!


We have a lot of birthdays coming up in our family and I just can’t seem to get enough of the new Truly Tailored Bundle!  So I created this stylish masculine card for our nephew.

This bundle and the colour grouping is perfect for creating masculine themed cards so I purchased the entire suite in my 2018 Occasions pre-order!  Look for classes in the new year that focus on more masculine type projects!  I just know that you will love them!

Here’s the list of products that I used.  Please note that some of these items will Not be available to purchase until January 2, 2018.
