If you don’t want summer to end do not look here!

It rained all day and the breeze was chilly.  I love fall, love cooking comfort food, apple picking, taking pictures of the kids in the leaves… Today inspired me to make my second swap a Fall card.  Sorry if you never want summer to end…  I’m in a fall frenzy!

Again, Sherida’s swap is about the holiday mini catalogue.  I used the autumn splendor and the wandering words stamp sets.  I also used autumn meadows designer series paper.  Have you ever noticed that Stampin’up! advertises which color is used in the designer paper.  That is what inspired me to used chocolate chip, really rust, very vanilla and more mustard card stock.  I also used these inks and markers to add speckles with the spritzer.  Just love the rustic look.  I tide the nuts and my greeting with linen thread. 

More pics..

To make your leaves look like real ones, stamp the image.  cut it out then crumble your leaf.  You can even wet the paper and crumble it up.

Can’t make a decision!

Well it’s 1o’clock in the morning.  Just can’t sleep.  I went with my 3 girls and my husband to the movies and we saw G-Force, a Walt Disney movie.  Then we went the chapters to look at some books, card magazines and scrapbooking magazines.  Can you believe that the Halloween stuff is out already! I made a mistake by having a starbucks Chai latte. (which I know if I drink it past 3pm that I can’t sleep)  But I couldn’t resist!  Anyway, I am participating in a holiday mini catalogue swap and I just can’t decide which card to do.  I started playing with products from the mini.  It’s the best mini ever!!!  Help me to decide!

I just wanted to create a classy simple card for Sherida Giddings’ swap.  I used the Stampin’up! petals-a-plenty folder and four the holidays stamp set from the mini catalogue.  I also used the stamp set tree trimmings, the specialty paper bride, whisper white paper.  I dazzled it up with the pretties kit and whisper white taffetas ribbon.  My images were stamped in soft suede.

Here is a close up of my ornaments (these are only stamped in soft suede)

On this card, the ornaments look lighter because I stamped my ornament with soft suede then I added shimmer paint in champagne mist with my dauber on my stamped cardstock.  I just love the new shimmer paint in the holiday mini!

I know it is kind of hard to see.  It is much better when you look at it in person but I need to make a decision before monday.  Also my husband is very good at making compliments and adjustments about the projects I stamp but he would be very critical if I wake him up. lol

Help me out!  With the shimmer paint or without??

soot technique

This is one of the techniques I did at my Riverfront stampin’ retreat.  The retreat is over but you can still purchase the 24 technique book.  Details here:

Stamp sets used:  sense of time, teeny tiny wishes

Punches: Modern label, horizontal slot

Soot Stampin:  Hold glossy cardstock over lit candle, so that the flame touches it.  Move the carstock around quickly.  Press a stamp onto the soot covered cardstock.   Do not touch the soot-covered part with your fingers.  The soot comes off easily.  Spray your image with acrylic sealer or hairspray to prevent smudging.

***I am currently working on creating a password access for those of you who attended the retreat or have purchased it with instructions in french and english.  I should have it ready in September, once the kids are back to school.

Convention make & take part 2

When I attended convention, the make & takes were divided in two separate areas.  In the second area, I created 4 make & takes to die for!

This Hello card was just radiant (in real) Love the new crushed curry.  I’m usually a bleu girl but this yellow is growing on me like a charm.  You have got to challenge yourself and try it.  Stamp set was Hello again which we received in our convention bag.

Then there was this cute :  Things I love Cello Bag of Cards with matching envelops.  We used the things I love stamp set .

What a great hostess gift!  Book a workshop and receive one of these:  Call me 613-675-1555 or email me:

Not enough chocolate:  Why not try making one of these cute Hello Box to hide delicious chocolates:  We used the Hello Again set and Retro Remix Stampin’Around wheel.

And here is my favorite make & take this lovely 8.5×8.5 page…  I love scrapbooking and just because I can share my favorite things: for the one’s who know me NEW SHOES ( lol Cindy Major), chocolate, shopping and my girls:  Megan(9),Jordan(4), Lauren(7).  What wonderful memories of convention 2009.  Maybe tomorrow, I will share what I won at convention this year!

Convention news from Utah

%Blog Banner %Stampin Up Demonstrator

I am still in Salt lake city, Utah for Stampin’up convention.  Here I am (left) with Maggie Patterson(right) on main stage.  When you are a demonstrator and achieve milestones you walk the main stage in front of all demonstrators attending the convention.  It is a stampin’up tradition to celebrate our accomplishments.  Yesterday I walked the stage because I earned the southern cruise, today for my sales and tomorrow for recruiting and promoting.  It was very emotional.    Who knows, if you join my team, maybe you will be walking on stage next year with me.

The first 5 demonstrators to join my team in August will receive a suprise bonus product from the new mini catalogue! (This offer is valid through Kim only)
