Meet my new baby!

No, I didn't have a baby...LOL I just got Stampin' Up!'s Table Top Cutter!!!! Finally! It's one of those things that I knew I should have, but have been hesitating for so long. If you are like me, buying cheap cutter after cutter, just cause you don't want to pay for a good one..now is the time to invest in the best tool for any crafter's table!!

I just started working on wedding invites for my friend last night, and this cutter makes it so much easier! Smooth and clean cuts!
Gotta Have It!!!!!

Beyond the Garden.......

I needed a little springtime flowers to cheer me up! It's been raining for what feels like an eternity! And still more rain in the forecast! So here's a bright and springy card using the new Beyond the Garden DSP, and the lovely quote from the Fabulous Florets stamp set.

I used matching flower buttons from the Brights Designer Button Collection
and tied some White Baker's Twine.

And to cheer everyone up who's miserable with all this dreary weather ...here's a few photos  I took over a week ago when it was gorgeous out! 

  Can't wait to see the sun again!!

Nautical Expedition Notebook

Out of everything in the Summer Mini catalogue, the Nautical Expedition Suite stood out the most to me. I absolutely LOVE  The Open Sea stamp set, and matching Nautical Expedition Designer Series Paper, as well as the Baker's Twine and Postage Stamp Punch....all items I used to make this altered notebook!
I used all 3 colours of the Baker's Twine and tied knots on each ring of the notebook....They come in White, Early Espresso, and Cherry Cobbler.

This little compass is a stamp from The Open Sea stamp set, I punched it out with the new Postage Stamp punch, a must have! And then I added a little Antique Brad. I sponged everything with Early Espresso Ink.

If you still need a copy of the Summer Mini, email me for one, and I'll mail it out to you right away!

Don't forget, only 1 week left of the great 30% off deals for National Scrapbooking Month!  Click HERE for all the info!

Happy Victoria Day!

Happy Victoria Day weekend to all my fellow Canadians! For those who never heard if it...
Victoria Day celebrates Queen Victoria's birthday (May 24th). Canada is still a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, of which the Queen is head.There's a little Canadian trivia for all my American  readers. So I thought I'd make a card worthy of the Queen herself, or anyone who wants to feel like a Queen for a day! This could make a cute bridal card too!

The crown stamp is from Artistic Etchings, and the mini crown (on the background) is from Clearly for You. The sentiment is from You're a Gem. I added some royalty to the card with satin ribbon and Basic Pearl embellishments! The card base is embossed with Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder on the Big Shot!

Hope everyone is having a great long weekend!!! It's been gorgeous here in Calgary, except for today we got rain! But that means more green to come!!

NEW Embossing Powders on Black cardstock!

I'm so thrilled that Stampin' Up! came out with 3 new bright and cheery embossing powders! They come in Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi (used here), and Melon Mambo. I wanted to really show off these great colours, by embossing on Basic Black Cardstock and cutting them out.

This stamp set, Fabulous Florets,  is also new from the Summer Mini catalogue...it will get lots of use for sure! I really love stamps that have outlined images, or solid shadow type ones. They are great for heat embossing!



I used 3 new stamp sets from the Summer Mini Catalogue on this card!! Fabulous Florets (for the background), Strength & Hope (Butterfly), and the sentiment from Happy Greetings! I love that butterfly!! If you haven't heard, when you purchase  the Strength & Hope stamp set (in wood, clear, or digital) Stampin' Up! will donate $2 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation! What a great way to get involved! Click HERE for more info!

The Pacific Point cardstock is embossed with the NEW Flower Garden embossing Folder on the Big Shot. The Designer Paper is from the Beyond the Garden DSP....I love the bright summery patterns and colours!

Kicking off National Scrapbooking Month!

So if you haven't heard, it is National Scrapbooking Month! And Stampin' Up! has some items at 30% off which include My Digital Studio prints! Click HERE to see more info!

Right now I am in the middle of a major re-organizing mess in my craft room....so projects may not be very frequent this week. I just bought myself 2 new bookcases from Ikea and a few more racks for my punches! Here's a peek into the mayhem!

So while I was going through my stuff, I found last March's Scrapbooking Club layouts I forgot to post. So here's 2 layouts we did with the Sweet Stitches DSP and Fabric.

Our Technique was using fabric, and embossing fabric. For this layout we cut out the flowers on the Fun Flowers Die on the Big Shot, then sprayed them with starch spray and scrunched them up, let them dry and glued them onto our pages. 

The second layout we embossed the fabric....

I love this look...reminds me of ostrich leather...

Well hope all these projects will satisfy your cravings for a few days...no promises I'll get any projects done til I finish my re-organizing. It's always fun to work on it, but once you stop, it's so hard to get back too it...But I will put together my new bookcase tomorrow and be pumped to fill it up!  Have a good week!
If you are in the mood to shop the NEW Summer Mini catalogue, or take advantage of the great specials on for National Scrapbooking Month, go visit my Website, and start Shopping!
