Wedding Seating Chart - assembled!

Hey bleeps!
I know it's been awhile since I've posted, for those who don't know, I've been visiting my family in Ontario for 3 weeks!!! that's a long time! I go back to Calgary this Thursday!

So you may remember that Wedding Seating chart I made for my friend Jacylyn, who is getting married this Saturday!!!  Well, she just sent me a pic of the assembled finished product, and it looks so amazing!! I had to share it!

I made the little name cards using So Saffron and Chocolate Chip cardstocks, as well as Very Vanilla....stamped the leave image from Fabulous Florets set in Tangerine Tango. They are clipped on hemp twine with the new Mini Clothespins!! So cute!  The sign also has Tangerine Tango embossed images from Fabulous Florets. These all match the Wedding Invitations I made her awhile back, click HERE to see the invites!

I have a few things to post on here, just finding the time to do it is hard when you're on vacation!  I've been working on finishing 2 heritage scrapbooks for my gran and aunt that my mom had started a few years I will post some of the layouts later, even though they aren't SU only...i still want to share them!

Embroidery Frame art....

Remember that Embroidery frame art piece I made a few weeks ago with the new Timeless Portrait Designer Fabric? Well, I decided to give it to my mom, and it fits absolutely perfectly on her wall at the top of the stairs with her Decor Elements - Tree, Thoughts & Prayers....and....Direction of Your Dreams. You can find those on page 233 of the Idea Book & Catalogue.   I just love it so much! I'm going to make some more with other photos, she wanted kind of a 'family tree' type thing on the pretty!

Be sure to check my older blog post for a closer look at my Embroidery frame!

'Cute' Baby Banner Card

Here's the third and final card of my Open House Make n'Takes...

We used all 5 of the new In Colours: Base is Wisteria Wonder, pennants are Island Indigo, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, and Lucky Limeade!
We stamped our cute pennants with the Pennant Parade stamp set, then punched them out with the ever-so handy Petite Pennant Punch. Then I punched little holes on each pennant with the 1/16" Handheld punch (a must-have for stringing banners!!) Then we strung them together with the White Baker's Twine. The 'cute' letters are from the Sweet Shoppe alphabet set.

My friend Kirsten's daughter Madeleine (age 4) did such a great job (with a little help from me...) She was so happy to show off her hard work! Such a good little stamper!

Pennant Parade - Christmas Tree card

I had a great afternoon, on Saturday, with a group of ladies and one amazing 4 year old stamper! We had fun doing 3 make n'take cards, all using the new Petite Pennants punch, and Pennant Parade stamp set...I posted the Ice cream cone one a few days ago, check it out if you missed it!  One of the other cards was a Christmas Tree one, using the Pennant upside down, and the Stamp Off technique to create some dimension in our 'forest'.

And here's Madeleine and her card she made all by herself! She's so crafty like her mommy!

Check back tomorrow for my third Make n' Take card using the pennants to make a 'cute' baby banner!

New Catty Open House....

Thanks to everyone who stopped by my New Catalogue Open House today! Everyone enjoyed making some cards with some new products! Here's just a few photos of my set up. The next 2 days I will post our Make n'Take cards.

Here's the table set up with all the supplies ready to go! I showcased 3 different ways to use the Pennant Punch and stamp set, as well as the new In Colours!

Here's my Catalogue table, with order forms, old catty's to give away, new Catty's and our Make n'Take samples. I also gave a special gift for every order placed that day for a $5 off coupon on next purchase.

And this was me the night before prepping all the supplies for the cards, and of course my parents cat Sugar had to be right in the middle of everything! LOL

Check back the next couple days for info on the other 2 cards we made, I showed the Icecream cone one a few days back, so check that out too!
Thanks for stopping by!

And, for anyone who was unable to attend or would like to add or change their order, I will keep the order open until Monday night, so feel free to email me with any additions or changes or new orders! Thanks for everyone who came out!

Icecream Cone with Pennant and Cupcake Punches!

What I love about the new Pennant Parade stamp set and Punch, is that there are so many options, not just pennants! This is one of my Make n'Takes for my Open House happening this Saturday 2-5pm for all my Ontario customers!  I will be going home for 3 weeks! Looking forward to seeing you all!
So the cards we will be making will all involve this stamp set and punch to showcase different options!
We will also be using all the NEW 2011 In colours, and this beautiful Ruffled Ribbon!

Also just wanted to share a few cool photos of the hail storm we had here in Calgary last friday....craziness!

What's a storm without a rainbow at the end!
