Snowflake fun

I have been talking about my Stamp-A-Rama Day in your pyjas, it took place this past Saturday.  Attendees got to Make 10 pages and cover their albums.  Although the pages were random,  I did decide to decorate the album with snowflakes.  Where did I get the inspiration? The other day, I was driving by a Starbucks and saw in their window: "Friends are like snowflakes, beautiful and different"  and I just loved it:)  I love a monochromatic theme and snowflakes are the perfect way to decorate an album.  I must say when I host events my favorite technique is to decorate a Stampin' up! linen album.  I have a few in my studio and they are all different.  I mainly use Stampin up's stencils but since there was no snowflake stencil, I decided to use the snowflake die.  It turned out great.  Everyone's album was beautiful and different just like the quote at Starbucks.  It was a fabulous day!

Have you noticed the pearls?  My favorite is the pearl bauble, it's so pretty and elegant:)

Holiday tags are so fun to make.  Trina was the inspiration for this one. It is so beautiful and fun to do!  There is lot's of Champagne shimmer paint which makes it very glittery in person.

This class was Part 1, if you are interested to sign up for part 2 it will take place February 19th. Places are limited since I can't use my husband's manly room anymore!  If you are one of my friends on facebook, well you already hear about it.  After 5 years, Anthony has finally furnished his manly room with manly toys:(  But it's ok, I do have a beautiful studio with Riverfront view that makes me smile everyday 🙂  I am truly blessed!

Haven't joined us for part one, you can still attend click on link HERE!  Places are limited! A 30$ deposit is required to save your spot, balance is due February 10th.

Hope to see you.

Favorite Simple Card

Out of my Christmas Purse Bundle, my favorite card is this one.  Why?  Because I love how lot's of Stampin'up! stamps have matching punches to coordinate. I'm a "matchie" kind of girl.  The way stampin up coordinates punches, colors, and now even fabric, has drawn me into this company and this is one of the main reasons I signed up!  It's after playing with their products that I learned:  I did have a little creative side deep in me.  And stampin up made me discover this:) 

On a side note, I love to watch CAKE BOSS, and he said today on facebook:  "It's National Cupcake Day!  What's your favorite kind of cupcake?"  I would have to respond:  My Cupcake Cuties Team members"

They are a true blessing!  Join my team today and you'll understand why  I love Stampin'up! and their products so much!  As a BONUS  I would be happy to give you this adorable Christmas Purse Bundle.

An Apron for Jordan

I was planning on giving the handmade apron for Jordan on Christmas Day but it was so stinking cute that I decided to give it to her ahead of time.  I couldn't wait any longer.  This is not "just an apron", it has little spaces to place each of her crayons, so she can use it in her craft room or she can use it in the kitchen and place her cooking tools in the little compartments. 

I had amazing helpers.  Thank you Lysanne for sewing the apron together and Therese for embroidering Jordan's name.  Jordan is super excited and enjoys it very much.  Imagine a scrapbook page with the candy cane designer paper that matches her apron.  I'll have to work on that!  I love the candy cane fabric.  Friday, I received my Occasions mini order, and inside was the new springtime vintage & Sweet Stitches fabrics, and I said to myself, Jordan needs two more with these fabulous fabrics.  They are wowsers!  If you are a demonstrator, you can preorder products from the mini since December 1st and for customers you will only be allowed to order starting January 4th when the mini goes live!

Candy Cane Christmas Designer Fabric
Price: $12.50
#121715

 

Remember yesterday, my team had done chunky frames.  Well my daughters each wanted one for their rooms.  I had extra frames from the ladies that canceled last minute so I let Megan and Lauren have theirs.  Well, they really impressed me!  Here is Megan who perfected, on her own a frame to match her room.

Stampin’the night away…

Hey! it's been a while!  I have been in my studio stampin' away.  Prepping for my cupcake cuties team meeting – Xmas party.  They rock my world and I wanted to thank them for being part of my life.  In this time of giving, I got them each a décor accents 12×12 chunky frame which we enjoyed decorating, while listening to Christmas Music, ate amazing food & shared tips.  Thanks to Veronique who brought me from town a delicious Chai tea from Starbucks, your awesome!  We don't have Starbucks in my town!  Thanks to Manon who gave me cupcake pyjas for the holidays, what a sweetheart.  And thanks to everyone of you who spent the afternoon with me.  We also got to play with Occasions mini products.  And some left with great gifts and prizes too.

This Decor element chunky frame is on sale 20% off until December 16th, item code:  #124075.  I also enjoy using my stencils.  These are all in the Definitely decorative brochure.

I must be in a "lovy dovy" kind of mood, sharing pictures of my husband and I.  This picture was taken on my first incentive cruise that I earned with Stampin'up!

Here is Veronique perfecting a classic look with her decor frame

Please do stop by to see me these decorated frames are much better to view in person, they are stunning!

Some applied craft ink only others applied paste.  I used the paste, love texture! The important part is to emboss the image so it stays put!
