Happy Valentine's Day

My husband and I don't typically make a fuss over Valentine's Day but I have to say that when I saw the Sealed with Love Bundle (Item 144705), I couldn't resist.  I know that this bundle will be used for Valentine's Day, but I love the idea of the little envelopes with notes tucked inside for any occasion.

Here's the card that I gave to my husband today!  Isn't the red and white pretty!

For this card I embossed vellum cardstock using the Falling Petals embossing folder.

Click here to get a free PDF Tutorial for this card.

Don't forget, it's Sale-a-Bration.  For every $60 you spend, you can choose 1 free item from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue.  So many beautiful items to choose from - you'll want to choose more than one!

If you haven't received your SU! Occasions Catalogue or Sale-a-Bration Catalogue, email me and I'll make sure you get one.

Happy Stamping!

Fundraiser in support of Honour House - New Westminster


I'm so excited that I'm part of a group of demonstrators that will be hosting a fundraiser in support of Honour House in New Westminster. We would love to have you join us for some stamping fun and sharing. Stampers are such generous people and I know when I tell you about this worthwhile cause you'll want to help!

So....what is Honour House? I'm glad you asked.

Honour House Society is a refuge, a home away from home for Canadian Forces personnel, emergency services personnel (RCMP, police, firefighters, EMT) and their families to stay, completely free of charge, while they are receiving medical care and treatment in the Metro Vancouver area.
These brave individuals, along with their families, sacrifice so much on a daily basis to protect our freedom and our everyday way of life. Honour House allows us the opportunity to show them that we care and how much we appreciate all that they do.
Honour house receives no direct funding and raises all of its operating costs through donations and fundraising. The house has one full time and one part time member of staff. Almost all of the work needed to keep Honour House running is carried out by our dedicated board of directors and our hard working team of volunteers.
So are you ready to help?
Please join us for a day of stamping and fun while we raise money for this worthwhile cause. Our goal is $2,000 which will provide 75 days at the House. We can do this together! 

You will make six amazing stamping projects during our time together. We will also have amazing prize and raffle draws and a 50/50 draw too! It will have the similar format to the event we run each year for Ronald McDonald House (last year we raised $4,000 with your help!).

I hope you'll join us and help us raise funds to support the brave women and men who serve our communities.

You will be invoiced seperately for the ticket price after you have registered - you can pay by credit card, PayPal or e-transfer. Information will be sent once you've registered.  The Early Bird Price (until March 3) is $45; after March 4 the full price is $55. Please put the amount of the donation in the "notes" section of that ticket.

My fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators and I are donating our time, resources and product so that all of the registration fee can go to Honour House for direct service.
Ticket Prices - Early Bird (until March 3) - $45
Full Price - (March 4 - April 15) - $55

Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration 2017 Samples

Posting some samples of cards that I've made or received from in the monthly swap I participate in with other demonstrators across Canada.  These are all made using stamps from the upcoming Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-Bration Catalogue which goes live tomorrow!

Check them out!


 The first card is made using the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set in the Occasions catalogue.  There is a coordinating set of framelits so you can cut out dragonflies and have them fly off the page.  For this card I coordinated black and gold using gold embossing powder and gold foil sheets.  I added some gold Wink of Stella to the dragonfly.  I know this set is going to be a favourite in the Occasions Catalogue!


The next card is made with the Window Shopping stamp set by my friend Liane.  I love the crumb cake, smoky slate and night of navy she used in the card and paired the sentiment from the new stamp with some favourites from the Annual Catalogue.  Liane stamped the sentiment in white embossing powder on the smoky slate card stock.


Finally a card may by my friend Alison.  This card used the Balloon Adventures stamp set which also has coordinating framelits.  Alison has embellished the card using the fun Sprinkle Embellishments that are perfect for shaker cards for for adding to the fronts of cards!


If you don't have a hard copy of the Sale-A-Bration and/or Occasions Catalog and live in Canada....just Contact Me and I'd be more than happy to send you one!

Happy stamping!

It's almost here! Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-Bration

I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas and are able to spend some quiet time after the holidays.

It's almost time for the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue to finish and the new Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-Bration (SAB) to start.  There are some amazing new products (as always) in this year's Occasions Catalogue and SAB catalogue - I've taken some time during the past few days to play with some of them.

Here are some samples from the new catalogue - High Tide is one of my favourites.  For those of you that know me, you'll know that my husband and I spend lots of time in the summer on our sailboat.  This stamp set was perfect for me and it was perfect for an Anniversary card for my husband.  Check out this Twisted Pop-up card that I made for him.  I've set some high expectations for cards for him - he expects all of the to pop up now!

Recipe:  Night of Navy and Whisper White cardstock, Succulent Garden and Carried Away Designer Series Paper and Night of Navy ink

This card uses Designer Series Paper from the Succulent Garden Suite in the Occasions catalogue and  Carried Away DSP from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue.  I think both are perfect for the nautical theme of this card - Night of Navy, Watermelon Wonder and Smoky Slate - my new favourite combination!

Here's a couple of other samples using the High Tide set.

Inspired by a card I saw at Onstage in Vancouver.
Recipe:  Serene Scenes DSP, Island Indigo and Crumb Cake cardstock and Crumb Cake , Early  Espresso and  Island Indigo Ink

Recipe:  Pacific Point, Crushed Curry and Whisper White Cardstock, Marina Mist, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and Old Olive inks
I've repeated the colours on this card - definitely love the colour combination!
Recipe: Night of Navy and Whisper White cardstock, Succulent Garden and Carried Away Designer Series Paper and Night of Navy ink
