Picture Perfect Panda Birthday Cards #StampinUp

My most recent class was fun and games with the Picture Perfect suite and the Party Panda from sale a bration!! All inspired by other demos on Pinterest with my minor spins 🙂 I hadn’t use vellum in a while so this one was guided by wanting to incorporate that into the creation 🙂

Scrapbooking Stampin Up style!

Thank you, Mary Haugen, demonstrator out of the United States for sharing this gorgeous layout!! I love scrapbooking with our products but as many of you know, I devote much of my time to my card classes and monthly commitments so MY scrapbooking tends to get put aside for those weekend retreats that I occasionally get to go on, then I put my head down and scrapbook up a storm!!

So when I saw this beautiful layout this morning, I just had to share!! I love the embossing paste and the sale a bration framelits will be a fav in my craft room for years to come so putting them together is brilliant!!

So what’s next?  I think the first priority is to get our Valentine’s done for school and then back to planning my next class using the Picture Perfect suite!!

I’m also here to make myself accountable to a weekly schedule of committing time to reflection and Bible art journalling.  Every time I see the amazing (oh, I will have to use our cut out in my Bible!) I kick myself because I have all this stuff, and just don’t make enough time to do it.  How can I not be making time for God?

Coffee cafe Sampler 12×12 Frame CLASS

coffeecafesampler

Just a quick post to share what is happening in my craft room, I know it’s been over a week since I posted and that was only a shameless post about the dance fundraiser LOL

From the moment I saw this coffee cafe suite I was in love!! Last July I did my first ever summer card class and it was a real hit, click here to see the post from that class!

Then I spotted this framed display creation by a demo in the US, Sherahl A. Weadon, and was sold once again!! I’m not actually sure I have ever done so much with a suite as I have with this one. So my upcoming class is this January 30th where I have a couple of ladies coming to create their very own!  Mine is currently a work in progress, almost done, so I will post it with the template and my class photo after the class has been completed.

Here is a list of the products used (I’m not sure what stamp set she used for the “enjoy”, so that is not listed, as well as the green washi in the upper right corner, my creation will be a sight modification on this one):

Product List

Welcome to 2018, a busy few months coming up!! Watch for future posts on the following:

Your Stampin Scrapbooker November Madness!

Wow! 9 days since my last post (okay, except that brief post this am about the deals! that spurred me to get on the ball!!), already?  Things have been a bit crazy around my house!  Between doing a Christmas card class for some of the teachers at Olivia’s school, which was so fun to see people wowed by the Big Shot for the first time, and then just yesterday helping out with the children’s Christmas card making at her school, this week has been pretty focused on those 2 events.

--making-memories-quotes-family-memories-quotes

Yesterday’s Christmas card making at Good Shepard has been a tradition at the school for years so it’s a fairly well-oiled machine.  It was pretty much what I expected (having been there last year as a parent) but was still has its moments of stressfulness.  That being said, seeing faces smile and be wowed by stamping and then punching out our little gingerbread man made helping 200 kids make cards worth it!! It was quite the experience!! I definitely learned a few lessons on how to improve next year.  I did take all advice into account and think it was good, but I will definitely make a few changes to make life easier on myself in the future! What I think will be boring, will still be fun for the kids, keep that in mind!! The fun is not for them!  So next year I will have everything punched/cut and in bins ready to go.  So all I have to do is pass them the pile and then they can assemble/stamp.  At one point there were like 20 people around the table all wanting attention and now…. let’s just say, I was sweating! LOL But, overall, it was super fun and I’d definitely do it again!! And next year, all 3 of my girls will get to go!!

We also had Light Up Okotoks on Friday night, our annual town holiday light up of the Christmas tree and Christmas kick off.  It was a bit chilly at -15 but not unbearable, I was thinking it would feel worse but we had lots of fun, goodies and even a photo with Santa!!

LightUp-web-banner 2017

Hubby and I went to the dinner theatre Saturday night for my birthday dinner and then, just to add to the scheduled weekend, we took the girls to Dinsey on Ice yesterday!! So, overall, it’s been a jammed week…

So what’s on my to do list?? Well, cookie dough! LOL Sunday is my annual Christmas cookie exchange so need to get on that… I also have some samples to make for my last Christmas card class!  Throw in glueing on some Brownie badges and the list goes on!

Hope this finds you all well and getting into the holiday fun!  We also are pretty much all decorated, just have to finish up the tree this eve… yes, I got that done in the mix of all that 🙂

Happy Holidays!

Carols of Christmas #Stampin Up Card Class #3 Card #2

Card # 2: Peace on Earth #2

Card credit to JENNIFER CERIZO of World of Jen Craft.

Watermarked1(2017-10-23-1910)

When I started my inspirational search with the Carols of Christmas stamp set on Pinterest, I found a beauty in a creation by World of Jen Craft.  Actually, her whole group of creations using the Carols of Christmas stamp set were mesmerizing!! I chose to dive into one quite like the one we have done in my class, seen above.  Jen’s had a few more details, including inserting more of the red start cut-outs into the spaces and more pearls.  In order to allow for time, so as my attendees wouldn’t be there all night, I opted for a bit less work, but of course, you can make this one as much or as little work as you like.

Paper Dimensions:

Whisper White CS – 4 1/2 x 11 (score at 5 1/2 for card base), 4 x 4, 2 7/8″ stitched circle

Garden Green CS – 4 x 4

Basic Black CS – 4 1/8 x 4 1/8, 3″ scalloped circle

Cherry Cobbler CS – Scrap for flower insets

Carols of Christmas #StampinUp Card Class #2 Card #1

Over the next 3 days I will post the three cards we created in my Christmas card class last night.  Two of which were inspired by other demonstrators around the world and the last one, very simplistic in nature, my me 🙂 

Card #1 Peace on Earth

I have to give credit to Pinterest for this one, specifically to Sue Vine of Miss Pink Craft Spot.

I very rarely veer away from the traditional up and down card, so being inspired to create in a landscape format was fun!

Watermarked2(2017-10-23-1911).jpg

This card has wow and elegance, that’s why I chose it.  I also am a huge fan of the trees in this set of thinlits dies (Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies).  I like the doubled trees to give the shadowed look and have stepped out of my comfort zone to stamp right on the card; I know, wild, right?   

Another special part of this card, which was the biggest reason I chose it, was the sparkle on the trees? It was created using some of Stampin Up’s new embossing paste topped with some of Stampin Up’s dazzling diamonds glitter!  How cool is that, right?  I rarely do much with glitter these days so this seemed like a great reason to dig it out and I wanted to show the versatility of the embossing paste too!

Click here for the instructions on how to make the card.  Enjoy!

#scrapbook – A layout to remember.. #yourstampinscrapbooker memories

The day I took this photo, I knew it was every scrapbooker’s dream to get to create a layout of that very moment.  That moment when the wee ones flip through the layouts you have created of them growing up over the years, is one to remember.  As I watched them pointing and discussing and admiring the layouts, I was thrilled to experience seeing them appreciate the scrapbooks, even if they don’t know what appreciation is yet.

Paige was asking Olivia questions about what was happening in the photos and layouts, and Olivia was reflecting on the events and what she remembered.  She would even read the journalling to the twins.  I didn’t get a whole lot actually scrapbooked this past weekend at the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival hosted by Creative Scrapbooker Magazine (@CSMscrapbooker), but I did get this one done and am so proud of it!  It is already on the wall in our craft room to cherish for years to come!

Watermarked(2017-09-29-1200)

As I’ve mentioned before, in recent years I have become so busy with my Stampin Up classes out of my home, and the million other things that I want to create, I have not been actually scrapbooking at home, I’ve been doing it all at crops.  Be that at a one full day crop (like the Rowan House fundraiser in March) or a 2 and 1/2 days of cropping (Crop & Create in March/April by Scrapbook & Cards Magazine), I have been able to keep up with my memory keeping hobby.  I make sure I’m well-planned with pictures printed and ready to go.  As I went to his crop, I had photos ready for a list of events from all of 2017, a new Canada 150 album by Creative Memories, as well as Canada 150 stamp by Close to My Heart, and many more goodies planned for layouts.  As I quickly realized that between shopping, make n takes that caught my eye (see previous post about Bible Art Journalling), and having to leave to go take my daughter to swimming and losing 2.5 hours, I was going to have to be selective about what I was going to get done.  I opted for what I was most inspired to do, the layouts that often get put to the side because there are so many other “things that need to get done”, like the birthdays, Christmas, etc.  I started off with a double layout of the bachelorette for my sister in law back in May to Scottsdale, followed by a very simple double of our trip to Drumheller to the dinosaur museum and finished with this beauty!!

#scrapbook says it all and I added #lovemom to it symbolize my love of them and this craft and I can only hope they will enjoy all my creations for years to come.  As I write this, the three are behind me at our craft room table drawing and colouring.  I will be forever grateful to God for the many blessings in my life and moments like these that I will cherish forever.
