Onstage Quebec City – Bloom and Grow Presentation

Hello,

I’m back from an AMAZING weekend in Quebec City, Quebec! I was there with 7 other members of my team and we had a blast! We were attending Stampin’ Up! Onstage Event. We had so much fun and I have tons to share with you and I can’t wait to share those with you over the next few weeks. 

But I finally get to share my news with you. I was ask to be a presenter on Main Stage for our local Onstage Event. Back in January, Dale Hampshire email me to ask it I would like to present. I have to admit I was very excited and nervous at the same time and I gladly accepted. 

I was asked to create samples with the new Bloom and Grow Bundle ( stamp set and dies)  that will be available in 2019 Annual Catalogue. I had to create 3 to 4 projects for my Main Stage presentation and 6 more for the display boards. This is one of the samples that I created for the Display Board.

This new stamp set is meant for a variety of colouring techniques and products. On this sample, I coloured the Flowers with my Stampin’ Blends. I used Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green. I did a little colour wash in the background with my Aqua Painter and Pool Party ink pad. This technique is very trendy! Then I add a little flecking with my Black Marker. 

I can’t wait to share my other samples with you over the next week! 

Need to order supplies: You can either email me your order OR you can head to my ONLINE STORE.  Don’t forget to use the HOSTESS CODE: K3YKCQMK AND if you bump up your order to $50 you will qualify for hostess code special for the month of April.
 
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!!

February Me Scrapbook Page

Hello,

When I was going through my pictures for my blog, I realized that I didn’t share my February Me Scrapbook Layout with you. I was inspired by a page that I saw in Scrapbook Cards and Today Magazine. I love the idea of a page about “Me” and I thought it would be the perfect way to reflect on Mindful Activities that I like to do during those long Winter months. 

Lots of elements on this page which adds to the feel of the page. Reminds me of all the Mindful activities that I do! I pulled the colours for my page from my hat and a winter jacket. I went with Bermuda Bay, Real Red, White and Basic Black. 

Details of my page: 

  • Artisan Textured Stamp Set
  • Swirly Frames Stamp Set 
  • Stitched Shape Dies
  • Friendly Expression Stamp Set 
  • Stitched All Around Stamp Set

Fable Friends Easter Card

Hello,

When I was looking for a sketch for my project today, I came across this sketch design on my friend Erica Cerwin’s Blog and I knew it would work perfect for my Easter Card! Thanks for the inspiration Erica! 

I was creating a bunch of Easter cards and I knew this sketch would work for the Duck Images from the Fable Friends stamp set. Aren’t they cute? 

I couldn’t stop there, so I created the exact same card but with a different pattern paper. 

Both of my cards used Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Whisper White and Basic Black card stock. The pattern paper is from the Bright 6 by 6 Designer Series Paper pack. 

 

My Duck images were coloured with the following Stampin’ Blends: Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Highland Heather, Balmy Blue and Granny Apple Green. 

So which card would you pick? The Stripes or the Polka Dotes?

Global Design Project 181 – Colour Challenge

Happy Day!!

The sun has been shining here lately and the temperatures are slowly warming up and all this has me thinking of SPRING!! I can’t wait to start working in my gardens and seeing all my favourite plants starting to peak through the ground.

When I saw these colours, I knew that I have to use it on some flowers and the perfect stamp set for that was the Lasting Lily stamp set. This is one that you can earn for FREE during Sale A Bration when you place a $120 order. But you will need to act quickly, there are only 5 days left of Sale a Bration.

I love the fresh colour combination of this card. It’s one that I will use again in the future. Just a reminder that sadly, Lemon Lime Twist is part of the 2017-2019 Incolour Collection and it will be retiring at the end of May. You want to make sure to protect your investment, so just your stock and see if you have all the supplies you need for that colour collection. Like your ink pads, refills, markers, ribbon and card stock. Once the retiring list goes up in the mid of April, these products supplies will go quickly.

On the weekend, I had a chance to play along with this week’s sketch challenge over at Fab Friday. I love how simple this sketch was as it left so many possibilities to create with! 

Since we only have 6 more days left of the Sale a Bration promotion, I thought I would share one of my favourite products with you from the Sale a Bration catalogue. 

One of my favourite product is the Hello Cupcake stamp set. It’s one of those versatile stamps that you can use for any occasion or theme.

My colour combination is
