Because every picture tells a story

…because every picture tells a story…

If you are a close acquaintance of mine, you know that I am very passionate about paper crafting.  But I am more passionate about scrapbooking.  I love creating projects to preserve my memories:  memories of my children, my stamping world, and memories with my love.   At our recent stamping event, I offered the opportunity for attendees to purchase my urban underground project life album and coordinating pages.  Below you will find sneak peeks of the album.  My full detailed album and instructions is available HERE (for those who have already purchased the class).  If you missed your opportunity at my stamping event and would like to purchase this class, email me.  I would gladly mail the products to you and give you access to my password code for additional instructions and images. I am adding a few bonus pages for you to reproduce.   Extra ideas is always fun!  I couldn’t limit my choices in photos so I kept going and created a full album.  

This album is versatile for any occasion.  I specifically created mine to showcase my trip to Jamaica with Chris.  In just a couple of hours, you will have a full album completed.  I thing the longest part for you will be printing and selecting your photos :)!

Hey chick would you love this free stamp set

Did you get your Sale-a-bration catalogue with all the free goodies?  I'm loving the Hey,Chick stamp set.  It comes with 7 rubber stamps.  I call it this chick and her girlfriends…. It also comes with 3 greetings that are perfect for your everyday card.  I especially love this chick!  She just puts a smile on my face.   I think I'll call her Betsy.  She's the perfect card to send to a girlfriend…  You can get this stamp set for FREE!   For every $60 CAD you spend (before tax and shipping), you get a FREE Sale-A-Bration product. That means it’s the perfect time to purchase those products you’ve had your eye on while earning more products for free.  The very vanilla, early espresso and pool party was just the perfect color combo. I also added embellishments from the cool treats suite.  The tasty treats specialty designer paper and the sprinkles embellishments were perfect for the look I was going for.  Ironically the cool treats suite has vibrant colors but it also has neutrals, if you select the right combo.

Tip#1:  If you flip the hexagons dynamic textured impressions embossing folder, it creates chicken wire mesh.  I'm all about vintage and this background is the perfect accent to a card.

Tip#2:  I also stained my delicate doilie with the early espresso ink pad.  Just stamp the ink pad directly on the doily and let dry.

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…

So hard to let go

I hope you've enjoyed your holidays. I've taken some time off and it feels wonderful. When Stampin'up releases the retiring list of products from a catalogue, I always cringe my teeth… I have trouble letting go of my retired favorites… I use to keep them anyway but now I only keep a selected few… Being a demonstrator for over 10 years has made my stash of SU products pretty big. If I kept all my stampin products, I would need to upgrade the size of my craft room… Us demonstrators have great perks, like free goodies, bonus and a discount on our products, hence the reason I have a great and big supply of goodness… You might want to check in during the Sale-a-bration period that starts on January 4th, the starter kit has a great deal going down…  There has never been a better time to join either for the discount or to start your own business.

The holiday catalogue is coming to an end on January 3rd, just like the holiday are almost over.  I've shifted from making holiday projects, to winter projects… I'm loving the Mountain Adventure stamp set… This is one stamp set that I'm keeping in my retired stash… Skiing is a big part of our family activities and I know this set will be useful for a very long time.  I've design this scrapbook page below for my January scrapbook club, if you would like to attend, I'm hosting on January 11th.  If you live too far then take advantage of my kit to go.  The kit to go includes the Mountain Adventure stamp set.  You have until January 3rd to sign up.

I wanted to include so many pictures… There wasn't enough space for my journaling.  To resolve this issue, I added flip pockets to incorporate my journaling. The linen thread kept the pockets closed.  Another idea would be to use magnets…

The embellishments from the holiday catalogue were pretty amazing as well.  I love glittery things.  The tins of tags project kit includes these star and circle sequins.  I added them using the Fine tip glue pen.  I also added white mica flakes to my mountains.

Here is a view of the inside of my pockets.  I stamped the inside and colored the stamp images with my new watercolor crayons that are coming in the new occasion catalogue.  This is one of the perks of being a demonstrator, we can pre order the new goodies from the next catalogue. If you don't have the new crayons, you can use the ink off of your ink pads.  I just press my ink pad down so the ink transfers to the inside of the lid.

On my previous post, I talked about how much I love the large letters framelits. This time I embossed my letters with softly falling textured impression embossing folder.  Adding texture to the letters made the title pop out.  I also added more white mica flakes…

Tip: When I want to display a scrapbook page, I get a 12×12 canvas at my local craft store and mount the page to it.  It's perfect for wall art or even to display on a shelf.  This page will make it to my scrapbook wall for sure… The color combo is perfect for my display area.

More amazing deals:

Stampin’ Up! has been doing a little year-end cleaning, and we’ve got some great deals to offer you! Our Year-End Closeouts will include holiday retiring products, clearance rack items, and current high-inventory catalog products. Click HERE to view these amazing deals!  There is not much time left to take advantage of these great deals.

Join a stamping club

I've been scrapbooking for over 10 years now.  I recently took out my scrapbooking albums.   I couldn't even recall completing so many pages.  As you know, I have 3 daughters.  I started stamping after Jordan was born.  Therefore, I don't have a perfect album of every year and every occasion.  I just go with the flow and pick one picture that inspires me.  Sometimes I have a theme and sometimes I don't.  It just depends on how I feel that day.  The best part of all those pages was reading the content.  It took me back to those memories.  I recently created this page of Jordan.  She was 2 1/2 years old.  This photo was taken by our local newspaper.  She was attending day care and Santa had come to visit with presents.  On the right side, I used the detailed to santa thinlits dies.  I created a tab that opens and on the inside, I journaled.  Jordan will be able to read why she was so happy that day.

Writing a title can be so easy with the Large Letters framelits dies #141712.  They are the bomb!  I've embossed the O by inking my cardstock with versamark then added embossing powder and heated it.

If you would like to update your albums and start creating scrapbook pages.  Send me your name to join my monthly group.  Cost is 25$ and includes products.   We start on January 11th at 630 pm. Can't make it because you live too far.  If you are Canadian, join my stamping in the mail club.  You will receive your package at home and can stamp in your pjs. 

Don't forget to sign up for Jo-Ann and I's occasion event planned for February, early bird pricing ends on December 18th which is today.  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

RSVP HERE.

One last request, please bring one non perishable item to the event…

A little project life love…

If you've taken some of my scrapbooking classes, you know how I love to add lots of details to my scrapbook pages… It would take me forever to catch up on all 3 girls's albums.  I took it upon myself to order the project life kit to speed up the process. I'm still going to make lots of very detailed pages but decided to add project life in Jordan's album.  I made a dozen of pages already.  Project life is a simple, affordable system for organizing your photos into albums.  All you need to get started are a few basic products.  Just slip your photos into the photo pocket pages and add cards with our exclusive artwork to easily document the important events in your life.  There are 6 different amazing kits in the catalogue.  You can check them out from p.162 to p.166.  The albums, photo pocket pages and more are on p.167. You need to check it out. I love the journaling pens, they come two in a package with two different widths #135304.

I love the wood banners that comes with the Hello Baby project life accessory pack #138458.  You can view a close up image below:)

I also liked the element sticker sheets in the kit.  You can place them on pictures as well.  I decided to place one on the designer card.

It also includes 4 epoxy stickers sheet…I've added a couple of cute ones on the card below.

This project life kit is from the Hello Baby Girl Project Life Card Collection #138504.  It includes 100 cards, 2 each of 50 double-sided designs in 3 sizes:  3×4, 4×4 and 4×6.  If you would like to make a baby boy album, the Hello Baby Boy project life card collection #138457 is also available.  There is also an additional Hello Baby Project Life Accessory Pack #138458.  It coordinates with either kits and it includes: 4 specialty acetate cards, 3×4; 1 alphabet sticker sheet; 1 acetate sticker sheet; 2 element sticker sheets; 4 epoxy stickers; 3 wood banners; 1 roll washi tape. On page 167 of the Stampin up catalogue, you can choose 6×8 or 12×12 variety packs project life photo pocket pages and they also have the albums.

To order the products to make your project life album, 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. 


BONUS DAYS:
For every $60 CAD you spend in between July 7 and July 31, you’ll get a $6 CAD Bonus Days coupon that you can use August 2-31. This is a great opportunity to shop from your wish list, whether you buy your favorite products now or later in August with your coupons!
