Happy Halloween!! more Goodie Bags!!

Here's some more treats for you!  Happy Halloween!
These cute little goodie bags are made with the 1"x8" cello bags from Stampin' Up! available in the Holiday Mini catty. Don't worry if you missed them for Halloween, these will come in handy for Christmas too!
The candy corn topper was made by gluing strips of paper (Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White) then punching with the Petite Pennant Punch! So cute and easy! (just make sure you use thinner strips so it doesn't create 3 layers of will break your punch trying to get through that many layers!

I punched out the Basic Black background with the Decorative Label Punch, did some faux stitching with the White gel pen, and added a little sparkle with the new Dazzling new fave embellie!

The next 2 candy bag toppers are images from the adorable Out on a Limb stamp set...I just love the witch, isn't she cute!

I coloured her in with the Stampin' Write Markers, added some Silver Glass Glitter for some bling and the same punched background with Pumpkin Pie cardstock. Next up is the little owl out on a limb...

I added some Dazzling Details to the moon and made some twinkling stars too!

Hope you all had a safe and happy Halloween!!!  Here's a fun video I took on Saturday of a Thriller Flash Mob that happened at a local mall here in Calgary. It was for Thrill the annual event held across the world simultaneously ...very cool!!! Check it out!

Oh and here is a guy I met there who looked fantastic as the Mad Hatter....could have sworn it was Johnny Depp!!! I wish! LOL

Spice Cake Fabric Wreath - with cookie cutter ornaments!

I'm in love with the Spice Cake line from Stampin' Up!....I admit it took me awhile to buy the products, but I'm so glad I did! Aren't these colours amazing together...Pool Party, Soft Suede and More Mustard. Last year I made cookie cutter ornaments for Christmas, but I just found these leaf shaped ones and thought I should make some with the Spice Cake DSP and pair it with the matching Designer Fabric and these HUGE buttons!

So for this wreath, I used a plain wooden embroidery hoop and tied ripped pieces of the Spice Cake Designer Fabric alternating with the 3 different designs. 

For the Leaf cookie cutters, I traced out the shape onto the paper, cut it out, then used Crystal Effects to glue the cutter onto the paper, I also filled in the whole leaf with it to give it a nice shine. I then strung them up using Linen Thread.

Thanks for stopping by today! Let me know what you think!

Thank You Cards

Here's the finished product of the Thank You Cards I had to do for a customer. This is a retired hostess stamp set, Birthday Bakery. I thought it fit perfectly for the purpose of these cards. I used a new fave colour combo, Basic Grey and Calypso Coral, as well as Pool Party. I coloured in the little baked goods with the coordinating Stampin' Write markers and added a bit of Dazzling Details for some bling! The sentiment is from Curly Cute.  I even added a cute cupcake on the envelopes too!

Hope she enjoys them!

I had high hopes this week to get alot of projects done, but I came down with a cold on Thursday and am still getting over it...but feel well enough to get my thank you cards made for a customer. So I'm in progress right now....thought I'd share a pic of my desk.

The Dazzling Details are drying right now, so I'm gonna hop in the shower and get dressed. I know it's almost 5pm, don't judge me! I'm sick! LOL

Petite Christmas Banner card

I originally made this cute little banner to go on my Christmas Tree decor I posted yesterday, but thought it was too busy for it. So I made a card with it instead...I've used some of the Letters to Santa DSP, Designer buttons, Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine, Basic Pearls and the Petite Pennants Punch to make the little banner. The base of the card is Crumb Cake with some trees stamped in Always Artichoke and Versa Mark from the Lovely As A Tree stamp set.  I also added a little sparkle on the trees with the new Dazzling Details glitter glue! It's so fun!

Today is my parents 33 year Anniversary! Congrats! Love you both!

Christmas Tree Decor w/ Letters to Santa DSP

Here's my second Christmas Tree Decoration...if you missed my first one, it's yesterday's post!
I punched out tons of ovals with the Large Oval Punch in First Edition and Letters to Santa DSP, then glued them onto a styrofoam cone. Curled them and sponged them a bit. 

Topped it with a star out of Silver Glimmer Paper...and you got an easy home decor piece, great for a gift too! Here's both of the trees I made together...i think they are pretty darn precious!

Christmas Tree Decor....Stampin' Up! style

I'm getting in the Christmas mood...and it's not even Halloween yet! 
But I'm trying to get things done earlier this year...pff...who am I kidding..LOL
My goal this season is to make alot of 3D items...home decor especially. Here's my first attempt at a Christmas Tree Decoration. I started with a styrofoam cone base, then scrunched Seam Binding Ribbon around it with Sticky Strip. The ribbons are in Always Artichoke and Pear Pizzazz colours. The ornaments are Cherry Cobbler Designer buttons, Basic Rhinestones and Pearls, and a new fave....Mini Jingle Bells!!
aren't they so adorable? and tiny!

For the top of the tree I put a big button and then stuck 2 pins in the button holes with Stars cut on the Big Shot Stars #2 die glued to them. I cut the stars from the new Silver Glimmer Paper from the Holiday Mini Catty. I love how they twinkle!

What do you think? looks cute with the Letters to Santa Designer Series Paper doesn't it? Well check back tomorrow for another Christmas Tree using that paper!

Mica Flakes and Glimmer Paper!

This is my first time using my new Mica Flakes from the Holiday Mini catalogue, and I am in love with them! Can't believe what a great deal these are! Only $4.50 for a HUGE container! I was expecting something like the regular size for the Glass Glitter. Here's a photo to show you the difference!

 And a little goes a long way! This will last me forever!

I also used the new Silver Glimmer Paper for the first's so sparkly! I'm so happy they came out with another colour, i loved the red one! Hopefully next year they will have more colours!

So to make this little shaker card, I used the Treat Cups with some Mica Flakes inside. 
Thanks to Rita for letting me know this Sweet Snowglobe isn't retired, like I previously thought...LOL  I could have sworn I saw it in the new catalogue, but didn't see it in the A la Carte section, or the Christmas is actually on page 61 in the treat cup coordinating stamp section!

Happy Thanksgiving!! - Vintage French Foliage

Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians! 
I couldn't wait to use my French Foliage stamp set again...I think it's been a year since I have. It's so beautifully cup of tea! I paired it with some First Edition Designer paper, More Mustard, Cajun Craze and Soft Suede Cardstocks. I used 3 different border punches to create the layered look...Scallop Trim, Scallop Edge, & Pinking Hearts...

I stamped the leaf images from French Foliage onto the First Edition DSP then cut them out and sponged a little Soft Suede ink on the edges. The sentiment is from Thankful For. Also added a little saftey pin from the Vintage Trinkets embellies and a snippet of Victoria Crochet Trim.
 I'm going to give this to my boyfriends sister today, we are having a turkey dinner tonight at her place!

Here's a few photos I took yesterday to get you in the Autumn mood...and makes you realize all the beauty God has created for us, and that we should be Thankful For!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Timeless Portrait Monogram Decor

 Monogram Decor is a big trend right now, and I've been wanting to make some for awhile... But as much as I'd love this for myself, it's actually for my mom! Happy Birthday!! Sorry for spoiling it for you, but since I'm so bad at mailing things on time, figured I give you a peek! 
I used Timeless Portrait DSP to cover the 'M' , as well as First Edition DSP for the flower...cut on the Big Shot with the Fun Flowers die. Also assorted ribbons, Trinket Keys, designer button, Baker's Twine and some sponging with Basic Black ink.

Happy Birthday Mommy!!

I just got the new Out on a Limb stamp set, and it's so adorable! Lots of fun stamps to create so many different scenarios! Here I used the 'limb' vertical to make a spooky forest.

I tied a 'boo' banner to the trees with some Early Espresso Bakers Twine. Also added some twinkling stars with some Glass Glitter.

It's been feeling like Fall this week here in Calgary...but I'm wishing I was back home in Ontario with their high 20's weather! One more day of work for me, then a 3 day weekend! yipee!

Grey & Yellow Yarn Wreath - Fun Flowers Die

I was feeling crafty today, and had some inspiration from this blog for a wreath using my new fave colour combo, grey and yellow! It was alot of fun to make, other than the hour it took for me to wrap yarn around the entire circle...LOL  The flowers are cut on the Big Shot with the Fun Flowers Die, as well as the Circles #2 die. Other embellishments from Stampin' Up! include retired Corduroy Buttons in Basic Grey and Summer Sun (both still available on the Clearance Rack!) , Pom Pom Trim in Daffodil Delight, as well as Big Designer Button. The wreath hangs with some Daffodil Delight 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon.

Cutting these flowers are quick and easy with the Big Shot! And for the month of October, you can get one for FREE if you sign up to be a demonstrator!  If you already have one, you can get $125 shopping spree instead for joining my team! What a fantastic deal! Can I sign up again, please??
