Blog candy winner & Canvas class sign up

I wanted to draw the names of the winners of the mini album on Sunday but our day was filled with lots of things to do + I had promised Jordan that she would pick names out of a hat.  Jordan fell asleep after dinner which is not her normal self.  She is the youngest but normally the last to fall asleep.  I blame it on being the third child and not having as much a routine as the others.  See, as a baby, she got to spend evenings in the arena where Lauren and Megan would skate.  And as a toddler she got to love spending some time with my stamping guests and today, she still likes to come and chat with the ladies.  Sometimes, makes us laugh, the comments that come out of this child's mouth is hilarious! And on other occasions, it scares me, what is she going to say next?  Like the stories she shares about our dog, Maya! 

So it's Monday morning and the first thing we did is draw names.  I would like to announce the winners of the 3 mini-albumsRoselyn, Annick, Mary S.  I don't have your last names on the post.  Please email me your postal info!  Congrats and thanks to everyone for the lovely comments & support.  

I also wanted to clarify that Marlayne shared with me this valentine mini album but the initial designer was Julie Buhler.  So thank you Julie.  Her measurements are a  little different and the concept but this is the beauty of the mini album, you get to make it and create it as your own:)

I'll be sharing again later today, it's a snow day the kids are home so my schedule is a little off but the view from my stamp room is amazing!

The beginning of something good!

In January, when I attended leadership Stampin'up!, announce that we got to give one starter kit away, whoohoo!  The first person that popped in my head was Lucinda.  She is creative, inspiring and has the best of family and friends!  Today was her first workshop, I planned on supporting her every step of the way, which I did.  I was in charge of make and take for this one, but Lucinda is hosting again next Saturday and the cards are so beautiful:)  Her guests will be pleased.  She already has 2 additional bookings which makes me smile. I know she was the right person for this Free starter kit for so many reasons!  Also, she has a bunch of friends that are also creative and that can sew!  Some are quilters and I have to admit, I will want to attend those classes so I can learn also!

Here they are today, Stamping away and here is my make and take.

I featured the bliss stamp set that you can get for FREE with a $60 order!

I am placing an order on Monday, so if you would like to take advantage of sale-a-bration then simply email me your order.

Scrapbook Day!

I first wanted to thank all of you for being so supportive.  What wonderful comments for my first video of the mini album.  I was overjoyed!  Jordan will pick 3 names on Sunday, and 3 lucky people will get to have one of the albums!  I already know what my second video will be about! 

Last weekend, I hosted a scrapbook day in our pj's, it was part 2, we made 10 pages.  We had part 1 in December. What a fun and relaxing day!  We chatted, ate, created, laughed and the best part is that I inspired a few to create, in fact one of my dear friend and demonstrator thanked me with a lovely email saying:  " I had rocked her world and helped her get her mojo back".  I love to help others and was so happy for her!   I also have to thank my helper Lysanne who mass produce lots of kits to go!  Here is a sneak peek of 4 of our projects.  Oh and I forgot to say, everyone brought a dish, it was so yummy!  Again, I am grateful for spending time with such wonderful people.

If you would like to take advantage of the kit to go, email me now!  I have a few put together + I am hosting the same class on a week night!

I also want to take this time to announce Part 3:  Vintage style!  I am hosting part 3 May 7th.  Email me to reserve your spot.

It's a short post today, as I am putting finishing touches for my classes at our creative escape retreat.  Can't wait to post sneak peek pictures about that(wink)!

have a wonderful weekend!

Finally, I did it!

Published by under 3D,baby,Canada,Mini album,utube video

Wow, I realized that I am not a producer!  I have worked so hard for my first video.  Not that it was hard to do but I learned lot's of things along the way.  The first video I made was awesome but too long for Youtube:(  Then I lost it a few times, dropped water on my project, broke a nail…)  It's been lots of hours and hard work but worth every minute.  I am going to bed smarter.  After all, I had never studied arts before, sew, and produce mini movies.  I studied medical sciences in high school and University!  I hope you will be pleased and basically the goal was to give you the instructions for my Bliss mini album + you get to hear my French accent!  So I hope this is clear for you!  I had seen a similar mini album at my upline's Marlayne and fell in love and then just created a few with sale-a-bration sets!

So to thank you for your patience, I have a BLOG CANDY.  I am giving 1 of these cute albums to 3 readers who will post a comment on my blog!  And if I don't get any comments then I get to keep them all! lol

Here are a few pictures of the album that I showed today and if you want to see my Bliss mini album then click HERE.  I also wanted to thank my facebook supporters during this trial period (Kimberly, Lysanne, Sonia etc)

The pictures are of my youngest daughter Jordan when she was 9 months.  There are two things she said to me:  "You keep saying my name on the video, it must be because you love me alot"  and the second thing she said was:  " why did you put a flower hat on my head?"

Smells like Spring

Although we are freezing here in Ontario, Canada, this morning it felt like spring in my studio.  I have been working on a few exciting spring events and can't wait to share them with you soon.  Mojo was on full swing this morning.  I have been trying to convince my husband Anthony for a sweet escape where it's a little warmer than here, but so far no luck!  Grrrrrr!  I don't know why, but the humidity in my bones is making me feel old:(  I cannot stand it.  Today, Megan had a drop in for skating and let me tell you it was colder in the arena than outside.  I have two new best friends, my Uggs boots and my North Face jacket!

Back to the stamping:)  I am going to share the instructions for the mini album this weekend, it's on my to do list.  I am so exciting it will be a video, my very first.  So stop by this weekend to view it.

I met with my stamp club members.  Here is what we came up for Rachel's grand-daughter Camélya for her 3rd birthday, this sweet birthday card and matching mini album.

I told you I was in a spring kind of mood!  Don't you love the color combo!  I love the Easter Blossoms stamp set as it has more than one use for it like a cute birthday card for Camélya!

We then worked on the mini album, how adorable, Grand-ma Rachel will be able add pictures of Camélya on the inside of her precious album.

Here is a video on how to make the album!

We had a great time creating it and today's stamping made it feel not so cold as my studio was warmed up with Spring colors and Love!  Have a great weekend and make sure to stop by for my first video!

Pay it forward, simply gorgeous

For me, it all started when Kimberly Van Diepen, who posted on facebook this comment: 

"Here is something VERY fun! Time to pay it Forward in 2011: I promise to send something handmade to the first 5 people who leave a comment here. They must in turn post this and send something they make to the first 5 people who comment on their status. *The rules are that it must be handmade by you and it must be sent to your 5 people sometime in 2011!"

She is a stamper that I truly admire because her projects reflect my style, and she is an awesome lady!  Anyway,  decided to take her up in this little challenge.  So, I re posted on my facebook profile and my Riverfrontstampin Facebook page.  Well, guess what:  I have 5 projects to do for my profile and 4 for my riverfront page = 9 in total.  It's a great thing that I have the entire year to do so.

Although, I didn't receive my pay forward from Kimberly, I did from one of my downline, awesome helper and good friend Lysanne.  She rocked my world this week at a workshop I was hosting with her pay forward to me.  She attended the event and brought my pay forward.   It is gorgeous.  As I would say in French, J'adore, J'adore, J'adore!!!  Merci Lysanne, du fond de mon coeur.

Let me share with you our relationship.  It's a small world!   She was looking for a Stampin'up! demonstrator because a friend had talked about SU products, so she looked into the demo finder in her area and voilà, my name appeared.  So she emailed me and found out that I was THE nurse at the high school she works.  And the rest is history.  As my business grew she has become my fabulous helper that I couldn't live without!

The colors and style are so me! And if you have been following my blog a little, you know I love baja breeze and stencils.  I hope stampin up creates more stencils.

Isn't it wonderful!  In the pockets are some wine "clippies", I don't know how to call them, lol

For complete instructions and product list, email me!

This pay forward comment made a lot of people create, which is so wonderful.  I haven't sent my pay forwards yet but I think they will be different from one another to represent the people that I am sending them to.

I have updated my classes view HERE, there are more to come:) If you want a fun fill day and need to update your scrapbook or need fresh ideas for your scrapbook classes,  I still have a few spots for my stamp-a-rama day in your pj.

Oh and I almost forgot, Marlayne and I are hosting our 2nd Creative Escape weekend retreat April 1st,2nd and 3rd and there are only 5 rooms left!  Book now to save your spot!  Details HERE

My to do list for the week for you: instructions for the card-scrapbook and a sneak peak from my stamp-a-rama day (you will fall off your chair on the cover album) and my to do list for me:  clean my stamp-create room, send downline packages and thank you cards & I am going for a run cause I made a goal to lose 14 and a half pounds before the Alaska Stampin up! Cruise!

Have a great day xoxo

What’s the most popular sale-a-bration product?

It's snow day, so I'm home with the kids.  The girls are cleaning their stamp/playroom.   One of these days, I'll need to figure out how to do a video and give you a tour of our stampin'Kingdom.  I'm embarrassed to say that theirs looks much better then mine right now.  Megan is making some bookmarks with leftover valentine paper from last year for all her schoolmates.  We still have to figure what we will do for the boys!

I am having a fun day.  I'm planning a wonderful project for Melissa's chicks and chocolate party tomorrow night.  (Picture below)  If you would like to join us, email me! Class is 20$ or 25$ if you want 20 pieces of antique brads included.

This afternoon, we are heading to the physio as Megan injured herself.  Please pray for her.  She has been training since summer for this important  EOSIC competition on Friday in Toronto.  Poor girl, she is trying to pretend all is good because she doesn't want to miss the event.  It makes me feel so sad for her, as a nurse and especially a mom, I need to remind her that even though she has been working so hard, and put her heart and soul into preparing for this competition that we might not be able to go and that her health is much more important.

Now, have you guess which product as been most popular in the sale-a-bration brochure? 

It's the Punch Bunch stamp set #123211 (c) #121847(w) or in french: Perfo à gogo #123237(c) #123235(w), in spanish, Perfora y decora: #123252(c) #123250(w).  If you have all the coordinating punches, it's so fun and easy.  You just need to stamp and punch.  Which punch coordinates?:  Two-Step Owl, Scallop square, 1 3/4" Scallop circle large tag, 1" circle punches.

Here is my card:

Love the seam binding, if you pull on the thread this is what it does!
