Jenna's 7th

I made this card for my daughter who turns 7 on Friday. I can hardly believe she is 7! Anyway, she loved the colours we chose for her invitations so I decided to make her card using the same colours. I also used my new cupcake dies for the Big Shot! So much fun. And the polka dot texturz again. I also crimped the base of the cupcake. The ribbon in stamped on with black StazOn (wish I had brown) but it still looks good. The hearts are from the SU 3 heart punch. Added dazzling diamonds to the flames and a little spot on each heart.

Sympathy x2

These are the 2 sympathy cards I have made for friends who lost their husbands in an avalanche this past week. We are so thankful that my brother in law is home safe and sound but so heartbroken for the other families who are not so lucky.

Party Invites

It has been ages since I stamped! I whipped these up tonight for my daughter's 7th birthday party next weekend. Since it's spring break here next week we need to get them out tomorrow. We did pink for the girls and turquoise for the boys. I got to use my new Texurz pads which was fun. The Chocolate Chip piece on the front is polka-dot textured.

I hope to get to do more stamping soon. Unfortunately I need to make 2 sympathy cards, but thankfully not 3. My brother in law was caught in an avalanche this week and while he escaped unharmed the two he was with did not make it out. We are deeply saddened by this loss as they were all very close. My heart goes out to the two widows and their children. One was my son's first grade teacher who is also pregnant with her second child and the other is left with 4 young children. It is just so tragic.

I have been so busy organizing our annual cheer competition at West Edmonton Mall, coaching, dealing with the new house, etc. that I have not had a chance to stamp in ages. Hopefully soon! I just wanted to share this picture of Jenna with our first place trophy from the competition! The girls nailed their routine! Way to go Parkland Spirit All-Stars!

Masculine Birthday

Cards for guys are the toughest! I thought this one would be great for many guys I know. Love the Cheers to You set! Card base is Naturals Ivory with Really Rust layer and More Mustard designer paper and then another layer of Naturals Ivory. Stamped the beer in black once on white and once on mustard and cut them out. The white is mounted on a dimensional as is the "c" which is chipboard coloured with a marker. The rest of celebrate is in black. Also did some paper piercing under the Ivory layer.

Time to Share!

Embellishment Share

What’s a share? A share is an opportunity for you to purchase several different embellishments for one low price. I purchase full packages of several embellishments (brads, buttons, clips, etc.) and divide them among 8 people. You end up with a great assortment of these embellishments at a fraction of the cost of purchasing full packs! You will save money and have the chance to try out a variety of embellishments and see which, if any, you would like to purchase as full packages.

Here is what you will get:
3 Chocolate Chip corduroy buttons
3 Kraft corduroy buttons
3 Pacific Point corduroy buttons
3 Clear buttons
3 of the clips assortment (1 of each style)
3 of the ½” library clips (1 of each colour)
10 Latte buttons (one of each style)
4 jumbo 5/16” brads (one of each colour)
4 jumbo 5/8” brads (one of each colour)
10 clear rhinestone brads
4 flower assortment brads (one of each colour)
2 designer flower brads (1 of each style)
2 designer star brads (1 of each style)
2 designer circle brads (1 of each style)
(See page 174-176 of the Spring~Summer catalogue for pictures)

To purchase full packages of all of these great embellishments the cost would be over $150! I am offering a share for just $20! You may purchase as many shares as you want. When the items arrive I will package them for you. Free delivery in Spruce Grove/Stony Plain or have them mailed (rural or other area - Canada only) for just $2.
To order please call or email me with the number of shares you would like to purchase. As soon as I get 4 orders I will place the order with Stampin’ Up! My shares fill up quickly so don’t wait too long. If you have any questions or would like to request other shares (I have done paper, ribbon, and other embellishments in the past), please contact me.
