Over the Top Card

It's been a crazy week at work, my nursing job has pulled me away from my stamp room and it saddens me!  When I get home from work, I am drained out!  Shortage of Nurses, increase in high risk clients has piled up my workload.  Wonder what I do?  One of my tasks, is to go in the homes of families  and assess newborns.  I help with breastfeeding and other issues.  Seeing high risk clients is part of my daily job as we have lots of teenage mothers, families who live in financial difficulties, who make poor daily life choices in this community.  It's my job to teach them better choices, baby care, to find funds for them to pay for diapers etc.  In the last two weeks, I have gotten an overload of high risk clients which breaks my heart.  Having 3 daughters has really soften me up.  You don't know how often I feel like bringing a neglected child at home with our family.  It happens almost every day.  I am normally in bed by 9h30, that is so not me!  Tonight, I took a different approach on this high level of stress.  What do you do when you are stress?  Normally I would go for a run with music playing full blast.  I am truly blessed to have Stampin'up! in my life.  How wonderful that I have found stamping to unwind.  Tonight I chose to go to my studio and played Adele Full blast.  Tony must have felt the walls shaking. Boy! it felt Soooooo Good!  I really let myself go and created an over the top card!   I hope you enjoy it, I surely enjoyed letting myself go!  Now just wondering, who to give this card to, any ideas? 

 

I love the crisp image of the flower in the Creative Elements stamp set.  This is a must stamp set that you need to add to your wish list.  Also good scissors are needed to cut the flowers out and Stampin'up! Paper snips are simply amazing.  I'll post the products used in case you want to create my over the top card or maybe a simple version of it.  It's Thursday which means it's my last day of work for the week, I get to stamp all day Friday which makes me happy.

Ready to Roll Baby

When I work on project that truly inspire me like my scrapbook layouts, I love to showcase them.  I am working on a wall full of canvas and projects to put down my staircase in my studio.  Tonight I am hosting a workshop/party for Lysanne and her girlfriends.  We are calling it a Sangria Night Gathering.  Some are making pages and others a card bundle.  Here is my scrapbook page I was inspired partly by Fran Sabad at convention and took some of her elements.  Fran wish you lived closer would love to stamp with you!  I am also excited because I was able to find 2 of the pictures from my crashed hard drive.  These pictures were not on facebook because I saved them for my presentation at convention but then my hard drive crashed and I thought I lost them forever.  I'll chat products details later because I want to catch a swim before the workshop.

Book your party today and get free products, I'm taking dates for August, September, October…

Also New Class layout soon available especially for you!

I started using my New Alphabet stamp sets and I am in love with this one!:  Letter It #122840(w) #122842(c)

Another spoiler

First of all, for the ones that sent me emails or Facebook messages about my time at the arena last night, your words warmed my heart, so I survived the first night at the arena.  The girls did great!  I was also surprised at Megan, she was shaking of excitement when we got to the arena.  Seriously Shaking!  Like a demonstrator when we go to convention or leadership!  That is how excited she was.  And I was shaking too but shaking in a freezing way.  We got home and Jordan and I cuddled in bed and then I feel asleep.  So you can imagine that I wasn't really productive.  So today, I'm going to share my second spoiler card ( the first one from Stampin up! since we started the new catalog season is here.)  This one,  that I am showing today was sent by Shannon West and Amanda Romualdo, Stampin up staff.  As a demonstrator, I get excited just like Megan with her skating when I get a hand stamped card, especially when it's from Stampin'up! themselves.  It makes it so special that they even stamped the envelope:)

Speaking of Leadership if you are a demonstrator, we get to participate to Leadership in January depending on our title, doesn't it make you want to go! Ask me how!  We all need a little stamping and stampin up! events are the best.  I love watching it over and over and it is all Stampin up! staff!

 

So back to my card, isn't it pretty, the words inside are even better:)  You know I will keep it forever.  I really love the Pennant Parade and matching punch Pennants builder Punch.  One of the reasons that I joined stampin up is that lots and lots of product coordinate.  Actually there is a August special and it is FAB-U-LOUS, for me and for you too!!  When you buy 3 packages of paper you get to pick one for FREE! This promotion is only on for August – so shop soon so you don't miss out, I just stocked up on my beau chateau designer paper and will also stock up on Christmas and Halloween Paper too!  Which one will you stock up on?  Happy shopping:)

Shannon and Amanda's card uses :

Stamp set: School lines #122625, Pennant Parade #122740(w) #122742(c) ou en français Fanions en Fête #124835(w) #124837(c)

Ink:  Night of Navy #102977, Baja breeze #111833

Card stock and paper: Crumb cake cardstock #120953, Pocketful of Posies designer paper #122354, whisper white #100730

Accessories and tools:  Scallop Edge Border punch #119882, Petite Pennants Builder Punch #1223613, 3" circle die #122125, Scallop circle #2 die #113469, Linen Thread #104199, Night of Navy 1/4" grosgrain ribbon #109036 and let's not forget the envelopes #107301

More from the shoebox swap

Published by under swaps,team meeting

Vacation is really over.  Can you believe I am about to take my winter jacket out to go see and support my daughters on the ice.  Megan normally skates all year long but this year she needed to go out of town for the summer, which meant leaving her with another family (a family that I didn't know)  I thought to myself at 11years old, I wasn't ready to let this happen.  It was a long summer for her cause she loves the sport so much but I had this gut feeling that it wasn't the time.  Tonight is going to be a hard one on her because at the level that she skates you aren't really suppose to stop for so long.  That it why I am going to support her every step of the way.  And then Jordan is starting her first lessons tonight.  I also want to be there to kiss her knees and bottom for when she falls on the ice:)  Megan started when she was 4, Jordan is 6 and didn't have the health to start earlier.  So wish me luck, I will be the proud momma in the stands with the winter boots and jacket! 

Yesterday I mentioned that we had our shoe box swap at our meeting,  you can read more about it here .  Here are a few other samples from demonstrators on my team.  It was a great event and will have another shoe box swap in October but with the Holiday Mini.

Kareen Fillion-Aubut designed this card.  She is my downline from Matane,Quebec

Lucinda Burton designed this one, love the matchbox fold

Roselyn Denis designed this card, I love the fold on this one too

And Manon Parent designed this one.  I love how she used the bright colors!

Celebrating Little To Big Accomplishments

Thursday evening, I hosted my regular monthly team meeting but also added my awards night for my Cupcake Cuties team members.  They are partly responsible of who I am today!  And I truly appreciate their friendships.  I recognized all my cupcake cuties.  I also recognized my Top 3 demonstrators in Sales and Recruiting.  Here they are Kareen Fillion-Aubut from Matane, Quebec.  So happy she was here and did the long drive to be with us. Si vous êtes dans la région de Matane, Kareen sera la personne à voir pour vous conseillez avec les produits Stampin up!  et elle offre de fabuleuses classes.  I also recognized Roselyn Denis from Hawkesbury.  She has been wonderful offering classes in Hawkesbury and Ottawa.  And last but not least Manon Parent from Hawkesbury also,  Une autre perle rare.  She works so hard and I give her the toughest challenges and she delivers.  I am so proud of all my Cupcakes and can't wait to see what our new year brings.

Roselyn, Kareen & Manon

Not much time left

My 2 oldest daughters are gone for a week to summer camp, for the first time ever.  I thought to myself poor Jordan, what is she going to do without her sisters?  Well let me tell you she is having the time of her life!  She is loving the full attention.  From grandparents, cousins, friends, stamping friends and her parents.  Her mouth never stops.  She is taking this opportunity to be heard from everyone, even our dog Maya.  I am so happy that she is enjoying this special quality time.  It made me realize that I should plan special dates alone with each of my daughters.  On a side note, I am the one missing my girls, with the storms and rain we had in the last few days, I wonder if they are ok.  Megan is gone au camp de l'amitié a Val des Boies Quebec that is 2.5 hours away and Lauren is across the river au Centre Notre-Dame de la Rouge, in Quebec too, if I could drive our boat it's just in front of our house.  I would love to go snoop.

Speaking of time flying by, It's that time of year again! Registration is now open for Creative Escape Weekend Retreat Oct 21 – 23, 2011.   Summer is not over yet, but we know you are starting to think about the fall and how to set aside some time for yourself once all the routines start again!

Hostess Gift from Convention

Busy busy as a bee, as I was uploading pictures on my new computer, I realized that I have been very busy:  Convention, Vegas, Tony and I celebrated our 10th anniversary in July, finally had my open house with the launch of the new catalogue, we attended Tony's uncle's 60th birthday party and his cousin's wedding and I celebrated my birthday last Friday.  Thanks to all of you for posting happy birthday on Facebook.  Actually, if the Facebook wishes were stamped, handmade cards, I would have had 150 of them:) pretty impressive! On the downside, summer is half done and we haven't been around, Tony and I made a list of 30 things that needed to be done around the house.  We realized that our busy schedule was not going to cut it.  So my dad is helping us out and started today to do the things on the list.  I am so grateful and the girls are super excited that he's around too:)  I love watching the girls pitching around and helping him out. 

I have so many projects that I want to show you.  Having all these events to attend in July made me stamp a lot. And now it's time to post some of them here.  First, I wanted to post my hostess box and matching cards that I presented at convention.  I created the box from a soap box from a hotel and just changed the size to fit a 3×3 card.  Simple Right? 

If you would like one of these, there are 4 options to receive Kim's Hostess Set:

1- Book a Party with me

2- Place a online order with me + Bonus get VIP service

3- Join my team, I would love to share this opportunity with you

4- Place a comment on my blog and I will draw 1 of these

Good Luck!

Personally for this project I preferred using the marker because I colored in the images and left the bee out of the stamp set to replace it with a butterfly
