Exciting news!

I've been missing posting on my blog.  But the truth is, I've been busy accomplishing an event on my bucket list.  I was in Europe visiting Switzerland and Amsterdam.  I attended a 3 day Stampin up! event in Amsterdam. Visiting the place my mother was born was a dream come true and finding out part of my heritage also.  Stampin up has brought on so many positives in my life since I joined 10 and half years ago.  The friendships will always remain number 1.  On this trip and event, I can confirm I have new friends from all over the world:)

Here are a couple of pics from my time visiting Amsterdam! 

For my card below, I used one of my favorite retiring colors, mint macaroon.  I've attached the list of retiring products.  Some have discounts up to 50% off.  The sale started on Monday, and already products are running out!!!  It saddens me that some of my favorite products are retiring.  But to console myself, I have the new 2017-2018 catalogue and it contains so many new and exciting products.  Plus the layout of the new catalogue is amazing.  Email me to reserve your copy!

The list of products used is noted below. One of the first techniques I learned when I started stamping is called sponging. The best color to sponge with is soft suede. 

Don't forget to view all the amazing products from the retiring list.  Order on my online store or email me your order.

I hope you enjoyed my mint macaron card and that you are inspired to use the retired products before they are gone for good! Happy stamping!

So succulent love

So we spring into April shortly. There are not too many days left before Sale-a-bration is over.  Did you get all the FREE exclusive products that you wanted? The good news is that the occasion's catalogue doesn't end until May 31st.  On Wednesday, I'll be showcasing in my studio new techniques with the so succulent bundle.  Here is a sneak peek.  Although the succulent garden dsp has many wonderful colors, I only highlighted a selected few to keep my cards monochromatic.
My 4 different designs might look similar but I've highlighted different techniques.
I also made a cute mini magazine holder to store the cards and envelops. It's a perfect hostess gift.
Kim's favorite product:
My favorite product used to make these cards is definitely the stitched shapes framelits that coordinate with the layering squares, circles and ovals framelits dies.
How to make the colored paste?

Love notes for that special someone

The sealed with love stamp set and coordinating framelits from the occasion catalogue is the perfect combo with This Christmas designer series paper from the annual catalogue.  Love notes are not just for Valentine's Day, you can treat your special someone all year long.  A special someone can be just anybody: a friend, a co worker, a teacher, a child or grand child or that special person that you share life with and love with all your heart.  Everyone loves getting love notes and cards! I still get overjoyed when Stampin'Up! main office send me a card.  We all prefer being acknowledged for something positive!  Walking to the mailbox and getting a hand stamped card is 100x better than getting bills. lol

I made these cards for a swap that I'm participating with other fellow demonstrators but I also made these cards for the demonstrators on my team.  Each of them got a personal message.  Personally, I don't think it takes much to put a smile on someone's face and brighten their day:)  Anyway that is my point of view…

– I used the banners framelits with This Christmas designer paper.  I die cut 2 pieces per banner to make it longer than the die itself.  Then, I glued them one under the other.  You can barely see the two pieces because the whisper white solid baker's twine is hiding the seam.

– I also applied soft suede ink with the stamping sponge on the die cut banners.

– I used my basic black stampin' write marker and gave it a "flick" on the large sided tip.  "I recommend you wear gloves for this if you don't want your fingers inked up".

– All the other products are detailed below.

This card can be in your stash of cards given to you from me if you place an order in my online store or via email. during sale-a-bration.  That is an extra included with your free sale-a-bration products.  See details below.   If you want a lot of products because the occasions catalogue is so so amazing, I suggest you get the starter kit.  You would get $165 of products for $135 and free shipping plus two extra sale-a-bration products!!!  It is such an amazing deal!!!

Some extra goodies from me:*** When you order in my online store, add hostess code:  ZC7CZ4HE.  This will give you an extra 5 samplers  cards from occasion's catalogue products created by myself, mailed directly to you…  If you join my team and purchase the starter kit:  Receive 2 PDF's from my occasion's event…

There are great deals about the occasion's catalogue and sale a bration event. Don't hesitate to contact me or place your order in my online store. If you are ordering online, don't forget the check that box so I can see your details that you ordered so I can make you part of my VIP customers and reward you.

Green Christmas, not!

 

I guess we won't be getting a green Christmas like last year… we are expecting 10-15 cm of snow starting late this evening. I'm hoping I don't need to commute tomorrow and can work from the closest office.  I took the opportunity today to stay in my pjs and work on a couple of projects.  It felt so good to just stay home.  I'm late with my Christmas decorations and Christmas shopping.  I think this year it will be mostly online shopping!   I've been sick since mid October and finally after 10 days of antibiotics, I'm feeling like myself again.  I don't like to take antibiotics but obviously, I needed it!  Therefore, I'm much more productive since my health is improving.  My Holiday card stash is coming along.  If you would like a holiday card from me, send me your mailing address this week. I'd love to finalize my to do card list.

Below you will find a card loaded with embellishments.  I just felt like going over the top.  It's one of those cards that nothing felt right but in the end fell together.  Garden green is not one of my go to colors normally but I am trying really hard to go out of my comfort zone. 

My embellishments included: 

– warmth & cheer designer washi tape #141994

– mica flakes trio pack #141998, I used the white flakes and adhered them with the fine tip glue pen #138309

– pearl basic jewels #119247

– very vanilla 1/2" lace trim #141672

-warmth & cheer designer series paper stack #141991

Some of these products are on sale right now.  Click the link below with all the sales or HERE.

The other products used for this card will be at the bottom of this post.

Here are a couple of additional tips:

I used the paper piercing tool #126189 to make holes around my oval very vanilla cardstock.

I also stamped once on a scrap piece of cardstock the tree before stamping to the oval cardstock so it would be faded.

Don't forget to sign up for Jo-Ann and I's occasion event planned for February, early bird pricing ends on December 18th.  We are more than half full but still have room for you.  Jo-Ann has created a fabulous certificate and if you prefer asking your family or friends a voucher for our event for Christmas, the option is available to you.  See voucher below.

Giving back to my community

For those who know me personally, you know that I'm a public health nurse.  Since I've returned full time to work  a couple years ago, I travel out of town to work for the same agency but closer to Ottawa.  I continue doing the same work as when I was a nurse locally.  But I don't get to give as much to clients in my home town anymore.  There are different components to my job, but the one that I am most passionate about is my baby and family home visits.  I assess family's needs, it could be parenting, breastfeeding, financial struggles, you name it.  We do live in an area where poverty is on the high.  Eastern Ontario is high risk for many different reasons.  One of my tasks is to find different community resources to help family in needs.  Nothing breaks my heart more than when these families including children who have no money for food or clothing.  I do refer them to the local food banks and snow suit program.  But I know I can do more. 

As I was commuting to work, I wondered, since I'm not working locally, how can I give back to my community?  Since it's the countdown for the holidays, why not host a Christmas card class where the proceeds could go to the local food bank and to buy snow suits for children in need.  The holidays are the perfect time for giving!!

So mark your calendar, on December 1st at 7 pm, I will be hosting a card class with cardholder.  Here is a sneak peek of the cards you will be making.

There are 3 different options:

Option A:  A goodie bag with a goodie bag 15$ of products, make 8 cards with holder and it includes envelops for 25$, a 10$ donation  will go to my community.

Option B:  includes option A plus the stamp set Hang your stocking also available in french for 57$, a 15$ donation will go to my community.  (pictures of the products are available at the end of this post)

Option C:  includes Option B plus the matching Christmas stocking thinlits for 99$, a 25$ donation will go to my community.  (pictures of the products are available at the end of this post)

Please bring adhesive and paper snips, don't have any ask me about my adhesive bundle.

Payments accepted are:  Credit card, ETM, paypal  (paypal link in right sidebar on my blog)

Can't make it, if you are canadian, ask me for my bundle to go.  Please sign me up for the bundle to go

This class is designed for beginners to expert stampers.

I thank you in advance for your support! xo

The delicate white doilies #141701 coordinate very well with the layering circles framelits #141705.  First I glued on one side of the card my white doilie then added my real red and crumb cake cardstock cut with the layering circles framelit.  It fit perfectly inside, the doilie was the perfect embellishment to add to the card.
