A Blushing Bride Wedding Card

Just wanted to share a card I made.  I needed two wedding cards plus our recent Team S.T.I.C creativity challenge was to make a wedding card.  Perfect timing.
Here's what I came up with:

What I feel is particularly impressive about this card is that I made it just by sitting in my craft cave and picking out a stamp set and playing.  I did not refer to pintrest.  I did not even turn on my IPAD.  Sometimes I shock myself.  Grin. 
It's hard to tell but the sentiment is heat embossed in silver.  
This card was so fast and easy to create that it was no problem making two.
Go ahead, give yourself permission to take out your crafts and play.
P.S. I discovered that the adhesive transfer sheets are the perfect adhesive for those fussy little sequins.  Everyone needs those transfer sheets.  I love them! 
Here's all the supplies I used to make the card.  Feel free to shop on my online store just by clicking any of the images.

Project Life: For memory Keeping and More!

Those Project Life by Stampin' Up! cards are so versatile.  I needed a baby card fast.  I decided to grab one of the cards from the Little Moments Project Life Card Collection and Ta Dah! An easy baby card!

I was thinking I would like to have a little weekly feature on my blog called "Watch it Wednesdays" where I will post some kind of video.  Here's today's video showcasing Project Life by Stampin' Up! This video gives you a very good idea of the card collection and how the cards are used in an album for memory keeping. But of course, there's no reason you can't use them to make a greeting card like I did!  

Don't you love that video and how easy it is to make an album to preserve your memories? Contact me today to book your Project Life by Stampin' Up! party and earn the products for free!

Feeling pretty special

Just had to share some special cards I received the past little while. 
I can't remember if I shared this one yet...This one was a thank you card from Shelli gardener CEO of stampin up. She was thanking me for my service on the past advisory board. I love all the little details in this card!
Guess what? It's my 7 year stampaversary! I can't believe I've been a demonstrator for 7 years! (No sign of stopping yet!)
Check out this card I got from Stampin Up Canada! 

I guess right now I'm feeling pretty special. :) who can you send a card to and help someone feel great? Don't know how to get started making cards? 
Come visit me at one of my classes soon!

Happy times at the Ladies Retreat Weekend

What an exciting weekend! We just completed another great Ladies Retreat Weekend.
I run this relaxing, fun weekend with a girlfriend. Anyone who wants a break from the stresses of life is welcome to attend and work on whatever they would like: stamping, scrapbooking, knitting, reading. An awesome swag bag and delicious meals are included.  This time we even had an optional Christmas card class that people could sign up for.
It was another great weekend.  Consider coming to our next Ladies Retreat Weekend scheduled for April 10th.
As an unexpected surprise, the hotel manager called and said that he would give us a larger room with large windows.  The natural light was a real treat.

Included in the retreat were little handmade gifts.  (the pouch held flavoured hot chocolate)
Did I mention the yummy food?

This great weekend is only possible because of the helping hands of my partner and fellow demonstrator, Julie and of course all the wonderful ladies who came out!
