Dragonfly Dreams Card Share

Hello Friends!

Wow, this has been such a busy few days.  With the Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration promotion happening until March 31st, people have been busy buying and qualifying for FREE products!  And, I have had people joining my Craft Room Stampers Team. I am truly blessed and appreciate everything that has been going on.

One of the wonderful bundles in the 2017 Occasions Catalogue is the Dragonfly Dreams bundle on page 26.  You can do so much with the stamps and dies from these products, from clean and simple cards, to stepped up versions with more stamping and some sponging. Then there are the shaker cards!  Oh My!

Here is a card I made for a swap I was in back in January in a conference in Toronto with some amazing fellow Demonstrators....

After stamping the dots (in peekaboo peach) and the dragonfly image (in crumb cake) onto white card stock, I coloured the wings with a couple of Stampin' Write markers.  Then I used the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush to bling it up a bit.  I cut the matching dragonfly die out of vellum and adhered it on top of the dragonfly image.  Such a nice card, and you can make it clean and simple by not stamping the dots, or you could even add some embellishments and lift it up a bit!

Don't forget, during Sale-a-Bration, with every $60 (Canadian) you spend on Stampin' Up! products before shipping and handling, you will enjoy "shopping" in the Sale-a-Bration brochure for a FREE item.  You can find the links to all of our catalogues in the right hand side bar of my blog.  And you can shop from either catalogue, or from the online only items.  They all count towards your $60!

If your wish list is huge, you might want to consider joining my Team.  You can get over $301 worth of product(s) for only $135 - and you won't get charged shipping or handling!!!  CLICK HERE to go to my website and then click on JOIN THE FUN to purchase the Ultimate Stampin' Up! Bundle (aka the starter kit lol).

EMAIL ME if I can help, or if you have questions.

Have a Crafty Day!

Balloon Adventures Bundle Card Share

Hello Friends!

I have had so much fun playing with the Balloon Adventures Bundle of products from Stampin' Up!  This great bundle is made up of the Balloon Adventures stamp set and Balloon Pop Up Thinlets Dies.  You can purchase them separately, or in a bundle and enjoy 10% off the price of purchasing them individually.

Here's a picture of the bundle .... (click on the picture to go to my online store for more info)

Here is a card I recently made using this bundle ...

I used the masking technique to stamp the balloons.  Here is a close up of them ..

Of course I added some Wink Of Stella Clear Glimmer Brush Pen to the dots and stripes on the balloons.  Everything is better with a big of bling, don't you agree?

Our trip to Korea, Vietnam and Thailand is coming fast.  We couldn't be more excited to make this a trip of a lifetime.  With the length of time it will take us to get to that part of the world, we decided to really make it a fabulous trip.  We will be landing in Seoul, Korea and spending a bit of time.  Then we fly to Hanoi, Vietnam.  We have two weeks to tour around Vietnam and Thailand before we go to the resort in Phuket, Thailand for our Stampin' Up! Grand Vacation.

Everyday that goes by, we get more excited.  Sometimes it's hard to sleep at night. This is the first Grand Vacation I qualified for from Stampin' Up! and the trip is for 2, so I get to take my hubby along too.  We are going to end up at the Angsana Laguna Phuket resort.  It is amazing!!!

Anyhoo, back to creating more beautiful cards to share with you.  EMAIL ME if you have any questions or concerns.  Also, if you would like to qualify for your own Grand Vacation through Stampin' Up! we can talk about that too.  Or you can CLICK HERE to go to my online website and "Join The Fun".  You can get more information on the "Ultimate Stampin' Up! Bundle" in THIS POST.

Popcorn Box Thinlets Die Set - Video Share

Hello Friends!

One of the lesser knows products in the 2016-17 Annual Catalogue is the Popcorn Box Thinlets dies.  This cute little box is big enough to hold so many delicious treats for any occasion.

Here is a video by Stampin' Up! on the use of these dies ....

I did a quick search on Pinterest and found some really cute ideas for the dies.

Some for Hallowe'en by Terry Duncan ...

Isn't this one beautiful? ....

You don't have to use it to make a box, look at this flower pot idea ....

Mother's Day Frame Project

Hello Friends!

When we were visiting our "northern Grandson" and his parents recently, I saw a wonderful Mother's Day frame that my DIL, Jessica, made to use with her students.

I thought it was so amazing that I took it to the local Parks and Rec department and we have scheduled a class on Saturday, April 29th on it.  This class will be geared to children who want to make this frame for their Mom for Mother's Day.

The big pink area is for the kids to put a picture of themselves.  I think any Mom would be thrilled to receive this frame from their child.  It can also be done in blue for a boy.

I picked up a 9x9 frame at the dollar store, and used the Large Letter dies, Beautiful Butterfly dies and Falling Petals embossing folder to create it.

If you know a child who would love to make one of these, call the Port Alberni Parks and Rec department and sign them up today.  The price is $25 and each child will go home with a completed project.

Have a Crafty Day!

Craft Room Stampers Team Swap Cards

Hello Friendsw!

On the first Monday of each month we have a Team Get Together.  All of my team is invited to join in on the festivities.  Some are able to come in person, and some join us via skype.

In January we decided to have a Team Swap based on products from the new Occasions Catalogue.  Each member who wanted to participate (it is voluntary) made enough cards so that each of the other participants received one.  Those who live out of town mail their cards to me, and I mail them back once the swap is done.

Here are the cards we swapped this time ....

Place an online order through me, and I will email you 5 card tutorials using products from the new 2017 Occasions Catalogue.  How sweet is that?  Products like Beautiful You, Special Reason and Sealed With Love!  CLICK HERE to go to my online store.

January Monthly Stampin' Club Card Share

Hello Friends!

Wow, January has certainly flown by, and spring is on it's way!!!  We have planned our annual Spring Break Camping Trip with our two local grandchildren, their parents and other family and friends.  Each year we spend at least a week in Tofino, BC on the west coast of Vancouver Island.  Such a wonderful place for children and adults alike.

Each month I have a fun group of ladies who get together and stamp, eat chocolate, visit and have fun in my Monthly Stampin' Club.  We get together and stamp two projects and place orders.  Each month a different member is our Hostess.  She brings a goodie to share, and gets all the Stampin' Rewards for herself!  Back on January 13th I shared THIS CARD with you.  It was one of the cards we stamped during our January Monthly Club get together.  It uses the Inside The Lines designer series paper that is available for FREE during Sale-a-Bration.

This is the second card we made this month ...

I saw this card demonstrated at the last Stampin' Up! OnStage Event and thought it was so cute!  It uses a technique I totally forgot about using the Wink Of Stella Gold Glitter Brush.  All you do is flick the brush on the edge of the lid of the brush and it flicks dots of gold glitter all over your project!  So simple, but wow is it powerful.

Stamps:  Carousel Birthday
Ink:  Memento, Peekaboo Peach
Markers:  Bermuda Bay, Peekaboo Peach, Wink of Stella Gold Glitter Brush
Paper:  Very Vanilla 11 x 4-1/4; 3 x 3; 1-1/2 x 3
             Cupcake & Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack 5-1/5 x 2-1/2
             Peekaboo Peach 7/8 x 3-1/2
Other:  Lace Doilies, Peekaboo Peach Rusch Ribbon (4-1/4"), Stitched Shapes Dies - Circle #3

Why Should I Buy The "Starter Kit"?

Hello Friends.

Did you know that one of the main reasons I started my blog was to connect with you? Along with that, I now want to grow my Team across Canada. I love what I do, and want to share this with as many people as possible. Our motto at Stampin’Up! is “Inspire.Create.Share.” I am inspired to share this opportunity with you. We have such beautiful products to create with and it is so hard to limit yourself to just one or two. 

Why not get a discount so you can truly unleash your creativity?

The wonderful thing is that you can get the starter kit with no strings attached. There really is nothing to lose. Nothing at all. You simply copy and paste this link
and your fun journey will begin. You get to pick out $165 of products, but before you do that you will be prompted to choose two FREE stamp sets as a bonus during Sale-a-Bration which lasts till March 31. You can choose whatever you want in your kit - ink pads, stamp sets, tools, it doesn’t matter. You can’t go over the $165, so choose carefully and get as close as you can. Once you have purchased the kit, you can also place additional orders and you will not only get 20% instant income, you will also be able to earn hostess benefits (at least 10% on a $200 order) and free Sale-a-Bration products (a free item with every $60 you spend).


So did you guess what the best deal in the catalog is? Yes, it is the Starter Kit. And the value is that high because you get to pick two free stamp sets out of any current catalog. Some of the larger wood stamp sets are $68!!! You will also get a Business Starter Pack including catalogues and order forms to share. There is an index of stamp sets at the back of the Annual Catalogue, this could help you narrow your search.

Spread the joy of Stampin’ Up! Everyone needs a hobby that is meaningful to get them through the stresses of life. This hobby is extra special because it also makes other people happy when they receive your handmade cards or projects.

I am also available to help you teach your first class and introduce your people to your new hobby. If you live more than a couple of hours away from me, we can do a video chat or phone call. You can also just happily play with your new products all by yourself. You customize the kit to your needs as a Hobby Demo or Business Builder.

Are you inspired to begin your journey? Click here. I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to purchase the Starter Kit early just for my own fun. The opportunities are endless. Since I began, almost 10 years ago, I've met many people who have become lifelong friends. I have met many people in my own classes, but also fellow demonstrators at conventions and on trips. My life is so much richer because of my Stampin’ Up! experience. The latest blessing was qualifying for a one week trip to Thailand for two from Stampin’ Up! 

I encourage you to think about investing in yourself. It is a very small investment that could change your life.

I hope that you will consider being a part of my Craft Room Stampers Team. We get together once a month on the 1st Monday of each month at 7 pm (Pacific Time).  You can join us in person, or electronically.  We share ideas, cards, techniques, and laughter.  Being part of a “family” fills my life with happiness and many blessings.

Have a Crafty Day!
