#summer2018 #todolists #holiday2018 What’s happening in your craft room?

Happy summer holidays, All!  I know, I can’t believe it but it’s been almost a month since I blogged!! Well, if you’ve read my previous posts, you’ll know that I’ve changed gears a bit and am refocusing my crafty time on me :). That being said, I haven’t cracked my “on-going projects” bin since I was at the weekend retreat in May!!! So what have I been up to?

Travel and family!

  1. Well, July flew by and included an amazing trip to Barbados to spend time with my family from the East Coast!  Here’s a pic of me on the beach!! It was truly gorgeous and am thankful to have had to the opportunity to go!

2. While I was away, Cory took the girls down the ranch and on some Saskatchewan adventures with Dad!

3. Then I packed us up and took the girls down the ranch and Olivia off to her first sleep away camp where she didn’t know a soul!  She’s so totally cool with that, she had a blast! The girls and I hit the pool at the Cypress Hills Park as we waited for Olivia which was followed by a full family weekend at the 11th annual Reno Rodeo in Consul!

Summer 2018 continued…

Next up the girls are all off to dance camp next week, I’m going to try and get some things done around the house and dig out the school supplies that  I ordered in June and haven’t opened the box!  I’m hoping to squeeze in some tent camping after that (when it cools down to a more reasonable temp).

Fall Crafting!

I just ordered my Stampin Up holiday pre-order yesterday!! Yes, that inspired me to do this post and get back at it!! I had mentioned in months gone by that I’ve decided I’m not offering a monthly Christmas card club this year, but am working on planning a 1 day weekend Christmas retreat to make 36 cards in 1 shot!  I have never planned a “stamp a stack” before so I’m going to plan the cards and try to post some ideas/samples by September.  Watch for the date to be posted soon!! It will be in November 🙂

IMG_0462

Also, keeping with the me-time crafting theme, I am already planning to attend a retreat weekend the September 22nd weekend with a friend near Cochrane.  I’m have opted out of the Scrapbook Carnival at Spruce Meadows this year, for this full weekend retreat instead.  More time for my money and not need to get childcare on the Friday.  I am still a huge fan of Creative Scrapbooker magazine, and will definitely be stopping by on Friday (on my way out of town to the crop) to shop and say hi!

So what’s on my to-do list… let’s have a look…

  1. Share some crafting love at the upcoming Millarville Fair (August 18-19) – watch for a post of all we submit 🙂
  2. Make new Outlander postcards for #droughtlander – OMG, did I mention the season 4 premiere date has been revealed??? November 4th!!
  3. Continue working on my UK April 2017 scrapbooking album
  4. Finish my travel notebook from Barbados
  5. Laminate and file all the kids’ work and projects that I have piled up from several years in the basement.
  6. Build a new ceiling fan and have it installed in my kitchen (the old one broke years ago and given the 30 degree weather, I really need to get on this!).
  7. Continue planning and working my new project for Christmas – the first annual Integrity kids’ Christmas party!  I wonder if there will be a Christmas card crafting station??? 😉
  8. Dig out and label the kids’ school supplies (not Olivia’s, just the kinder want it).
  9. Go school shopping for fall clothes, including new indoor shoes (this is on the list for next week when the girls are all at dance camp and I can shop solo!).

I’m sure the list goes on so do feel free to give me encouragement to just pick and start!

Anyway, that’s all for now.  Do watch for a Facebook Live of all my new fall goodies when they come, and a SAVE the DATE for my Christmas Card stamp a stack retreat!  If you are interested in more info on the event, please do message me or email: janleygrant@hotmail.com.

#StampinUp Labels to Love #MerryChristmas Card Class #1

“All I want for Christmas is you!”, yes, Mariah will be belting out her tunes in my house soon enough, especially with snow headed our way tonight…. Okay, let’s not get ahead of ourselves, no, I do not put up my tree until after Remembrance Day and usually my birthday on the 15th, then it’s free game!!! But in the mean time, my Christmas card club starts next week!! For several years I have run a club consisting of 3 classes of 12 cards each for a total of 36 cards completed over 3 nights.  A class at the end of the months of September, October and November so they are done early enough for that that want to send in the mail.

I always plan my classes based around a combination of what inspires me (if it doesn’t, who is coming up with the ideas for the class?) and what I think the ladies that have been coming to my club for years will enjoy.  This year I chose the Label punch with the Labels of Love stamp set to match the punch, the Carols of Christmas bundle, the Christmas sweaters and the Christmas in the Making (I love to color and so do many of my ladies) so there had to be a set where we get to color.  I am loving the new embossing paste so that will get in the mix and I always do some heat embossing in my classes too; there is so much wow factor to heat embossing, it makes anything pop!

For all my event information and to RSVP, please like my Facebook Page!

So where are my three samples for my upcoming class that is this Tuesday.

Watermarked1(2017-09-20-2021).jpg

I have decided that I don’t really like this on the soft suede card stock so I’ve decided to stick with whisper white.

Watermarked2(2017-09-20-2022).jpgWatermarked3(2017-09-20-2022).jpg

Posts to follow with detail each card with the supplies required for the card.  I’m working on becoming a YouTube sensation (yeah, right!) so once I have that under control I will regularly film as well.  Here is my YouTube channel, click here!!

So as a reward to myself for getting my samples done and all my cutting/prep work, tomorrow I get to pack to head of to a 2 day crop!  On Friday and Saturday you will find me at Spruce Meadows in Calgary at the Scrapbook Carnival hosted by Creative Scrapbooker Magazine.  Watch for a post of all the fun!!

Pick a Pumpkin #Stampin Up Thank You Card

Watermarked1(2017-09-17-1450)

The best creations are those that you don’t plan to do, right?  Well, half true, I did buy this bundle for the girls to play with and most likely use on my Halloween layout and when the need for some thank you cards arose, I found a way to use it!! Thank you cards are definitely the most used in my craft room and I find it weird to give them out if I haven’t made them, just feels off to me.  I needed two cards for the girls to sign and send in the mail so I got started and (as you should always do) make several more in an assembly line!! I took photos of the process, see below.  I am also going to do a video of the creation.

What’s also awesome? I bought this hardwood background stamp last year and had never opened it, what better time, right?  Isn’t it gorgeous?  I am in love for sure!

Here are a few photos of the process, follow this link for the detailed instructions to create the card: https://www.thesearemystamps.com/cards/pick-a-pumpkin-thank-you# 

Video HERE! Be kind, I’m new to filming 🙂

Lay out your die cuts to place as you desire on burlap

Adhere Thank you with dimensionals

IMG_4617Use Tombow liquid glue to pumpkin silhouette, use very minimal amount and only to the middle were it will adhere to the burlap.

The final product! Please comment below if you were inspired by the card.  I was inspired by Pinterest but it was definitely a rarity of different ideas that lead me to this creation.  Watermarked1(2017-09-17-1450)

Products used are listed below with direct links to my shop!! Note: I did use a retired burlap so have linked you to the current burlap ribbon, it is not as wide as the one I used, so you would likely need two strips to create the wider look I have on mine.

So a few more reveals of the goodies from #holiday2017 #StampinUp and a SURPRISE!

Today’s two reveals are two very different suites – first, for the die hard reds and greens fans, yes, you know who you are!  (because that’s me) I just love this Christmas Around the World Suite!  There is an amazing designer series paper, wood embellishments and a gorgeous real red ribbon.  That’s only the beginning of the possibilities! (pages 29-29)

Holiday17_p28a.jpg

Secondly, we have the more elegant, softer tones of the metallics in this wintery suite called Year of Cheer (pages 36-37). It includes speciality washi, champagne foil sheets, metal embellishments, foil snowflakes and of course, the designer series paper.  I can already see the new Pinterest board in the making!

Holiday17_p36-35.jpg

So, want it all? Well, join my team of Stampin Stars!! Get it all for yourself at a discount! Ask are more: janleygrant@hotmail.com and check out why you should join MY team!

OR, feeling the host a party bug?  Know your friends will want some of these beauties too? so why not host a party?  I do virtual parties online via Facebook and you can shop 24/7 in my online store… OR, I am also offering very limited Sunday afternoon parties in your home.  I have been out of the party hosting world for a while as our family commitments just don’t allow for me to be able to commit to an event, but Sundays are an option.  This is a first come, first serve, and I will only be doing local to Okotoks and area, very limited options.  Again, you can totally opt for the online party from anywhere in CANADA!!

AND – There is an extra bonus to hosting a party of $375 Canadian, an exclusive holiday stamp set!! so that is an extra on top of your rewards!! I will chat more about this tomorrow both on Facebook LIVE at 9:15am and watch for a blog post to come out as well!

But I’ll leave you with a teaser…
