Good day to you!  Today’s card is a CASE (Copy and share everything) from page 43 of the Holiday Catalogue.

There’s a story here – I made this card because the first one I made with the Still Scenes Bundle did not turn out OK at all!  So I threw a little snit, threw it in the garbage, and went to the catalogue for ideas.  This one stood out and to make it my own, I changed it up just a bit by adding the snow on the trees.


Are you ready to try out the new and re-designed Trimmer?  It is now available for you to purchase and I really like it.  Especially the fact that the extender “leg” is built into the trimmer itself which makes it much more sturdy.  As a Demonstrator, I cut a lot of paper and can say in all honesty that the blades holds a great, smooth cut for a very long time.   Visit my Store and try it out!

Now, on to the list of products used for today’s card.

Have a great day and Happy Stamping!


Wow, today I’m going from neutral to really bright with this happy birthday card.  Warning – you may want to wear sunglasses, lol!

I wasn’t fooling – this one is bright!  I played around with the Pigment Sprinkles and a Stampin’ Spritzer to get these cheery blooms just right!

The image was first stamped using Jet Black Stazon ink and then I carefully sprinkled the powders so the right colour would end up as close to where I wanted it as possible.  I used Granny Apple Green and Melon Mambo and then very carefully and gently spritzed.  All-in-all not too bad for the finish.

I was following along with the new Freshly Made Sketches layout so decided to go all in on bright and used the Daffodil Delight Pigment Sprinkles for the background.  Wow!

Here’s the list of products used.  Make sure to check out the Pigment Sprinkles, they are so much fun to use!

Have a fabulous long weekend and Happy Stamping!


Do you have someone who is always in your thoughts?  You know, that someone special who might need a card to help boost them up.  Having someone in my thoughts was the inspiration for today’s card.

And the Good Morning Magnolia Bundle was the first thing I grabbed to create it.  There’s nothing like a big, beautiful flower to brighten someone’s day!

So, how to show it off?  Well, the layout from Freshly Made Sketches helped with that.

Instead of the white rectangle, I choose to use that beautiful bloom over a background design from the Magnolia Lane Designer Series paper.  Yup, I like it and think that the recipient will too.

Here’s the list of products used.  I find that the Stamparatus is the best way to handle that large stamp, just place, arrange your paper and stamp!



Have a great weekend and Happy Stamping!


Yahoo, have you heard the news yet?

You can now order new accessories for the Stamparatus!  I put the Small Grid Paper (149621) on my order first thing!  It’s great if you use the foam mat while stamping.  Just place it directly over top for perfect alignment every time!

Visit my Online Store to see all of the new items.

Something beautiful “this way comes”!  On November 1st, 2018 you will be able to order items from the very beautiful Snowflake Showcase!

This includes a choice of two stamp sets, Snow is Glistening photopolymer, Happiness Surrounds photopolymer,

Snowflake Trinkets, Snowfall Thinlits Dies and White Velvet Sheets of cardstock.

This too, was put on my order and I will be sharing samples with you as soon as they arrive in my eagerly waiting hands!

Take care and Happy Stamping!


If you took a close look at the Retirement List, you may be wondering why all of our fabulous Stampin’ Up! Colours are on that list!

The answer is that they are doing a complete colour re-vamp and we will be getting some new colours added to our Colour Families as well as the new 2018-2020 InColors!



They are changing to ink case to make it easier to open – just insert your thumb in the lip at the from of the case and lift it to open.  The lid fits more tightly so there is less chance of it accidentally becoming disconnected ( a frustration of mine).  They are also stackable but will still fit nicely into the Colour Caddy!

You can still use the “old” reinkers with the exception of the Basic Gray Archival and Basic Gray Classic Stampin’ inks.


A few of our old favourites are retiring;

Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, Elegant Eggplant, Island Indigo, Marina Mist, Perfect Plum, Pink Pirouette, Rose Red, Soft Sky, Tangerine Tango, Tempting Turquoise, Wild Wasabi and Wisteria Wonder.  If these are some of you favourites, my advice to you is Get Them Now!

I hope that this answers some of your questions but if you have more, please do not hesitate to Contact Me.




Are you into magic and wonderful things like that?  If you are, you will probably get great delight from the Magical Day Bundle that’s in the 2018 Occasions catalogue!

This stamp set has matching Framelits dies that make it easy to cute out the cute and magical images in the stamp set.  The matching Myths & Magic Specialty Designer paper just adds the perfect finishing touch to any project that you make.

This card is a 4-1/4″ square and I used 4 1/2″ strips of the designs to frame that great sentiment.
