Pinterest Worthy Creations!

I absolutely love doing Stampin' parties.  This past Sunday afternoon was grey and rainy.  It was the perfect afternoon to head over to Jennifer's condo.  She loves to host an annual halloween crafting party.  Each year I bring the craft and supplies and the friends hang out and chat and eat spooky treats.

Here's a few photos from the afternoon.  These halloween wreaths were super easy to make and we even had a first time stamper in the group.  I could tell she was impressed with herself!

I think I'm going to start calling my private classes "pinterest parties" because everyone goes home with creations that they can post on pinterest.

In fact you probably have lots of beautiful things you've pinned on your pinterest board with the intention of making day.

Well, I'm here to make your dream a reality!  I will bring all the supplies so you can actually create something beautiful and pinterest worthy!

Contact me today! 

Jennifer always decorates and provides snacks related to the halloween theme.  This water cracked me up!

I know you can't tell in the pictures but everyone is relaxed and chatting and happily creating!

Everyone was so proud of their creations!

Tin of Tags: More than tags!

For today's Mojo Monday card I wanted to share a card that I CASE'd from fellow demonstrator Ronda W.
I just loved the colours and it uses glitter ribbon!   Squeal!!

Sometimes it's really fun to use non traditional colours on a Christmas card.  
The stamps come from the Tin of Tags Stamp Set.  This stamp set was designed to be used on the Tin of Tags project kit where you can make 30 designer tags but of course you can use the stamps to make a card too! 

Now is definitely the time to be thinking about your Christmas cards and gift giving options.  Let me help make it easy for you! Come out to my upcoming events or book your own private event to take away some stress of preparing for the holidays!

Need any supplies for your holiday crafting?  Head to my online store to shop today!

Tip Thursday: Use those scraps in your punch

Do you ever want to use your smaller scraps to punch out shapes but they are just too small to properly hold and adjust in your punch? 

Let's take the Jolly Friends stamp set and Jolly hat builder punch for example.  

I've stamped my hat on this small square of scrap cardstock. 

However, I can't get the image lined up properly in the punch because the paper is too small.

Post it notes to the rescue!  I just attach a post it note and use it as a handle. 

Now I can get it perfectly positioned for punching and once it's punched, I can easily remove the post it note.

Here's a picture of the completed card!

Hope you enjoyed today's tip Thursday!

A little bit about Me: Watch it Wednesday

Stampin' Up! Canada asked me to do a video for their Sunday Share feature on their Stampin' Up! Canada facebook page.

If you haven't "liked" the Stampin' Up! Canada facebook page, head over and do that now so you can see creative inspiration, keep in the loop of deals and generally be in the know about what's happening with Stampin' Up! Canada.

When you are over there, you can watch my Sunday Share video from this past Sunday.
Here's the link for the Stampin' Up! Canada facebook page.

Just in case you aren't on facebook I thought I would share it here for my Watch it Wednesday feature.
Now you'll know a little bit more about me. :-)
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone and thanks for popping in!
If you want to see a close up of the card I shared in the video, I posted it below.
