Tea time in vintage decor

Sneak peek from the new 2010-2011 definitely decorative catalog.  As some of you might know, I am getting ready for my 2nd Annual Riverfront Retreat.  The best part of this retreat for me is the social aspect.  I love having my customers, friends, family and fellow demonstrators over for some chatting, entertaining and some stamping (of course).  Since the ladies will be working all day tomorrow, we need tea & coffee time to get them started.  I decided to decorate this "vintagy" plate with this new & must I say gorgeous medallion in the definitely decorative brochure.

Simply adorable!  It will look pretty in my studio.

Book now your party for the new catalogues starting July 1st, before all my dates are all gone!  I must say, if you like the decor brochure,  the new one is the best and the hostess levels are simply stunning!  Wait until you see this brochure!  Save your copy today!

Sneak Peek of my 2nd Annual Riverfrontstampin’Retreat

Well, there is exactly one week left before my 2nd Annual Riverfrontstampin'Retreat.  Are you excited??  I sure am.  I am so excited that I couldn't contain myself and had to give you a little sneak peek of what's coming. 

I always use a different technique to cover my album and always use Stampinup's linen album because you can decorate them in so many ways.  This year I used the Mostly Vintage Stencil but added a little twist to my stencil technique.  I added stencil paste to my album.  And voila, it turned out great.

It rained here in Eastern Ontario, but the sun is just starting to shine, so I took advantage and went at the end of our dock to get a picture.  Nothing like natural daylight for a great picture!

Here is a close up of my album.  So there you go, you get a preview of technique #1 .  Can't wait to see you all, next week & you will get to see & create the next 23 techniques.  For those of you who got the technique album to go, I am almost done.  See you soon!

Simply Adorned, simply gorgeous…

I have to say, I've been getting great comments since I started wearing my Simply Adorned Charms.  It all started when I participated in two swaps, one in Canada & the second in the States.  After receiving different ideas from demonstrators, I fell in love with these adorable charms…

I  have been displaying them in my studio and have them in bags, separated them in all the different sizes.  Here is a close up of one of the charms.  I don't have the name of the demonstrator that designed it but I just love it. 

Here  is one that I created in black & white.  Sorry for the picture, it is not as clear as I would of liked it to be.

You can purchase these charms from me 3 ways:

1. Email me

2. Shop on line

3. Come to one of my fun classes

The Simply Adorned charms and Chains are in the summer mini on p. 17


Simply Adorned Bracelet 8" #117342

Simply Adorned Chain 24" # 116800

Simply Adorned Chain 34" # 116853


Simply Adorned 5/8" circle charm #117349

Simply Adorned 5/8" square charm #118476

Simply Adorned 1 1/2" x 2" rectangle charm #116799

Simply Adorned 1" x 1 1/4" rectangle charm #116798

Simply Adorned 1" x 1" square charm #116797

I think it would make a fabulous gift for someone special, with the chains you can create necklaces,bracelets or even a key chain.    You can create your own inserts with you stampin supplies or add a picture.  I love that I can create inserts that match my clothes.  I am planning on giving one to one of my daughter's sweet teacher.  Can't wait to see you at my next simply adorned class, aren't they simply adorable… 

Tomorrow it is Friday, wohooooo!  Off to Kathie's workshop

Let’s get organized in the kitchen!

Does your Recipe Book look like mine? (picture not shown, but maybe I should show it on another post, so you can see the mess)   When my husband looks in my recipe book, he shakes his head.  I guess it's because he is better organized then me.  Right?! 

When I earned the stampin up carribean cruise, someone from the stampinup staff had created this awesome recipe book and I had to recreate it for my own kitchen because it is simply adorable and easy to do.  Only took 2 minutes and voila!

It is as easy as 1 2 3:  I placed the definitely decorative (EAT) on my album with my decor elements applicator and then embellished with my fancy ribbon.  That is it!  Ask Jennifer she saw me do it!

Order HERE or email me!

Polka-Dot 6×6 album #119833

Small Eat  in white #117852

Décor Elements Applicator #114285

1.25" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon in Old Olive #115618

Isn't it so stinkin' cute?  Check out the other definitely decorative elements that are on sale & available until June 30th in my store.  Starting July 1st look for the new Definitely Decorative 2010-2011 catalogue.

Scrapbooking memories for Father’s Day

My Father's Day Page

Memories of my husband & my daughter Jordan, Old Orchard USA.  I took this picture while they where spinning in this big giant bear ride.

Well let me tell you I found a new addiction! Specialty Designer Series Paper.  It's in the new Summer Mini Catalogue.  This vintage Designer Series Paper has different glossy designs that can be magically revealed using 1) Smooch Spritz 2) Aqua Painter 3) Brayer or 4) Sponge and ink.  I love love love it… As much as my stencils which I use a lot!  The brown specs are smooch spritz in log cabin.  I recommend using the color catcher so you don't have smooch everywhere.

My close up reveals a light impression of colors because I used a sponge.  If you want a bolder look, then I would suggest a brayer.  If you notice on the right side of my picture, I also stamped Sense of time stamp set over my sponged image to create texture.

If you are coming to one of my clubs or Melissa's party on Monday you get to make one of these!

Then I added On Board Cog in chipboard.  And added some chocolate chip ink to it. I used chocolate chip instead of early espresso because my new catty order will only make it in Canada monday!

By the way, have you noticed something different from this page?

Stampinup! sent us some samplers of cardstock from the new 2010-2011 catalogue.  A wonderful perk from being a demonstrator.  I used cherry cobbler and early espresso.

Specialty Designer Series Paper #117175

Smooch Spritz in Log Cabin # 119921

Color Catcher # 121093

Cog # 117237

Sense of Time # 113804

Brayer # 102395

Sponge # 101610

And the new colors will be available to you July 1st unless you join today, then you get to preorder new 2010-2011 products this month!
