Lots of layers

I have had this card laying in my studio for a while.  Trying to make it work.  It's like my new house, my home.  When you buy a house that you haven't built, you need to adapt and make it yours.  I think, I have successfully accomplished my goal with my card and my home.  Jordan always refers to our house as "fancy"! lol.  She always say:  "it might not be big mom but it's fancy!"  Actually, the week that I don't have the girls, I find it very big… But, I'm starting to get use to that after 2 years in the new house.  We also have a surprise addition to the house.  He's called Badger.  Badger was Chris's  K9 dog.  He retired from the force after being a K9 dog x 12 years.  Yes, he is 84 years old in human years.  The sad part about a working dog is if the trainer or previous trainer doesn't take him in, he would be euthanized.  To Chris, Badger was his long time partner and he could not do that.  Especially that Badger has saved his life a couple of times.  I love hearing all the stories… Therefore, I agreed to take him in.  In the beginning, I was petrified hearing all the stories from our friends.  Especially, that when we got him, initially it was only Badger and I at the house.  Let me tell you, that first week, I gave him so many treats to make sure he associated the treats as a reward and not me as the treat/reward!!!  We are now great friends.   I have taken many pictures and plan on scrapbooking them for Chris.  He is an important part of Chris's life. 

My card has a monochromatic theme going just like my house.  In my home,  there are dark floors, light walls with a hint of baja breeze.  Do you remember that Stampin'up! color? It was my ultimate favorite, back in the day.   I compare it to a sweet combo of pool party and soft sky:) I wanted to maintain the monochromatic theme in the house so everything would blend.  For this card it was all about white,gold, layers and shining bright like a diamond…

You can see the layers from this side view.  I love using dimensionals #104430 to create the layers.  I've used the dimensionals on behind the trees and wording banner.

Then came glitter and gold embossing.  I've embossed the tea lace paper doilie #129399 with iridescent ice embossing powder #101930.  Embossed one of the stamps from the peaceful pines stamp set #139728 with gold embossing powder #109129 and you will noticed that I added snowed texture to one of my trees, it's dazzling details #124117.  I love glitter! There is a great bundle that is included in the holiday catalogue:  the perfect Pines framelits dies with the peaceful pines stamp set.  You save 15% when you get the bundle #140850.

I could not resist adding a Reindeer paper clip #139643.  There are 10 in a package.  Wouldn't these look cute with Christmas pictures.  I need to work on that:)

The background was created with  the winter wonderland specialty designer series paper #139588.  It is a rich combo of whisper white, gold and basic black.  When you view the entire series, you will find it very classy:) I also added layers of the winter wonderland designer washi tape #139609, at the bottom of the card.  The all is calm, all is bright quote comes from the stamp set Wonderland #140365. It matches the paper collection of course.   And if you look at one of the first pictures, you will see that I added white 3/8" glitter ribbon since I'm all about glitter. This ribbon comes in a package of 5 yards each of gold and white ribbon. #139614.  Last but not least, I added pearls #119247.  A rule of thumb when decorating a home, you always decorate in odd numbers.  That is why my card has 3 trees and 3 pearls and 1 reindeer:)

I hope you liked my project today.  If you would like to get together with your friends and create your holiday cards, email me asap! I have a couple of spots.

My Aha! moment:)

I took out a couple of Halloween decorations out since I was so excited playing with all my Halloween goodies from the Holiday catalogue.  Then, I reconsidered…. Chris's birthday is coming very soon, actually it's on Thanksgiving this year.  I just can't take out the Halloween stuff before his birthday… It just doesn't feel right…I'm still not sure how I am going to post about him.  Some of you know how I love to scrapbook and I would sure like to incorporate him in my pages.  How can I describe Chris to you?   On social media, Chris is  like Tim the toolman Taylor's neighbor, Wilson W. Wilson Jr.  You never get to see his face on the show.  Well that is pretty much my social media life with Chris.  Ya! he's a private guy but the main reason involves his career.  With some careers social media is not a great thing… He also has my best interest at heart… Therefore, You will not get to see very much of my guy:)  Here's a little sneak peak… I do plan on putting him in my project life albums, you might not see all his body parts on my blog lol  I can count on one hand the number of years he has until retirement…. After that, it will be a different story.  He does have some serious man candy going, so I'm very sorry that I can't share:))))  It will be a very thick album since we are compatible in so many ways and already have a great deal of adventures that need to be preserved in albums:)

He didn't know it was him in the picture when I showed him.  Maybe cause he didn't have any gel in his hair.. So I don't think it's a big deal that I share here.  Plus it's the perfect "Wilson" picture.  I'm still struggling with the nick name I will call him while blogging.  If you have any ideas please share…

Back to stamping.  I created a couple of 3D treat holders.  My focus was Halloween but you can make these goodies with a completely different theme.  The more I play with my Stampin'up! products, the more I get creative.  Albert Einstein once said:  "Creativity is intelligence having fun."  I'm having a great time and struggling with Influenza so I haven't slept much this week. I had all the time in the world to think of creative projects.   A couple of days ago, I had a aha moment. not sure if the designer at Stampin'up! planned this out but the spider web dollies on p. 47 from the Holiday catalogue fits perfectly with the square pillow box thinlits dies p. 41. Isn't this awesome? I think so!

See my images below:  I cut the spider web dollies in half and it fit perfectly on the top of the square pillow box.  I also used a clear window sheet to make all my pillow boxes.  My goal was to show off the goodies in the boxes but you can use regular card stock to make them.  Different options are in the holiday catalogue on p. 41. I also love how Stampin up! created bundle deals, the pillow die has a great bundle deal.  You get 15% off when you purchase the square pillow box thinlits dies with the stamp set called a little something on p 41. I received a couple of requests for the paper copy of the catalogue. If you are in canada and want a paper copy email me HERE.

I decided to post the boxes individually so you get a better look at these.  I can't pick which one is my favorite?

Love Love Love the Happy Haunting designer series paper #139584. Especially this side of the designer paper which reminds me of burberry.

I had to do a custom pillow box for Jordan… I added chocolate in her box and her picture as well.

These make perfect Halloween treats.  And the decoration adds a touch of love to share with your family, coworkers and friends. I'm thinking of adding a basket of these at my desk at work. 

I hope you are enjoying this beautiful weekend.  I'm off to bake pumpkin spice cookies for my gang!

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!

Is it scrapbooking or a card?

Yesterday, I said I was going to share my wow project from my terrific workshop with Lysanne.  Love this project because it is pleasing for cardmakers and scrapbookers.  I will have lot's of pictures to share about this project because it's in steps.  Hope you enjoy it.

I also have a few more albums to share and a video on how to make these.  Click HERE

As you remove the belly band this is what you would see:

When it is completely open, you can add a few pictures and add card stock to put your greeting inside and send this project to someone special.  I love using the spritzer tool with the bliss sale-a-bration stamp sets.

How do you use the spritzer tool #107066?

You insert the larger tip of a stampin'write marker and you would squeeze the large end of the spritzer to create air. The air will then make the ink from the stampin'write cover the card stock with tiny dots of ink on your card stock.  It is beautiful and vintage.  Love love love the spritzer.  If you like vintage YOU need a spritzer.  The closer you apply your marker, the more intense the specs will be.

 

Actually, this has become my book "bragger" of the girls.  I carry it in my leadership purse.

Leadership Make & Take #4

Published by under leadership 2011,make& takes

What a fabulous, productive day!  Although I didn't do everything that was on my list, I had a great day!  It started by a great phone call with a new demonstrator on my team.  Janet from Toronto, she is one of my long distance demonstrators.  We had a great talk on starting this new chapter in the Stampin up family.  Even if we never met, I felt like I have known her for years, as we chatted.  Our conversation reminded me, why I love being a demonstrator so much = new friendships:)

Leadership day 3, a bittersweet ending!

Yesterday was Day 3 for leadership in Nashville.  This year we had pins with different SU colors for prize patrol, although I didn't win for prize patrol, I love my early espresso pin.  What happens at prize patrol?  If you had the pin they announce, you would win a gift.  What made it extra special, Shelli came to our classes  to announce the winners.  It was fun, spontaneous and exciting.  Here she is, at my class.


There was two Main stage sessions.  Love Bonnie's presentation, she focus on the sweet stitches collection from the Occasion Mini.  Here is one of the projects she made.  Wouldn't you want a gift similar to this?  Why not book a workshop with me?

There were more announcements on main stage, Stampin up  is having a Regional in Montreal on April 1st and 2nd for half days and I have another announcement in particular that you are going to love, but I won't share today:)  The day ended with Make and Take session for all 1000 demonstrators together, more shopping at Memento Mall games and fabulous decorations.  I'll be sharing the make and takes tomorrow.  I haven't finished them all but all I have to say is they were the best Make and take ever.  I can't wait to show them at my next workshop.

I love leadership:  the business tips, get together, friendships old and new ones, the pampering, entertaining and I can go on and on.  It was a bittersweet ending, I didn't want to say goodbye but couldn't wait to get back to my family.  Even though I slept maybe 2 hrs, I wanted to be home around noon today to see my family.  Tonight, Lauren is singing at church and I didn't want to miss out.  I might be a little tired but it's all worth it:)

Check back tomorrow for make and takes and more:)  Oh and if you wonder where the next Leadership is?  San Antonio Texas January 18th to 20th 2012.  I can't wait.  Email me if you want to come with me next year, I will coach you on what it takes to get there!
