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 :)!

Hello December!!

Hello December!


 I was way overdue for family pictures with my daughters.  Although it was freezing outside, we had a wonderful photograph session.   I had these pictures in my phone and didn’t use them.  So last weekend, I decided to make something crafty to preserve my memories with my daughters.  They are growing way too fast.  So I go to retrieve my photos and they were not in my app on my phone. Grrr.  I wanted scream. I rely on my phone way too much.  All my precious memories were in this special app that I won’t mention here….  I had to update my phone a couple weeks back and bam the pictures were all gone.  And that icloud thing,  I still don’ t get. Where is the cloud? Lol.  Cause every time I need it, it’s not there.  I was in a panic mode.  Ya I did post a couple on my facebook page when I initially got them but they were the samples.  Lesson learnt, I should print my pictures and save them on a second drive. These precious moments can quickly disappear. Thankfully my super amazing photograph had them on file. She is extremely busy with her business and normally doesn’t keep them all.  I was ecstatic!! She said look at your emails in 2 hrs and they will be there… and they were!!! Thankfully!   I owe her big time. 


This event has thought me a lesson.  Pictures of my family, my life and with my honey are truly meaningful to me.  I have decided to reorganize my pictures.  Project life is an easy and fast approach to my goals.  Although I like to add an extra bling here and there and everywhere, sorting my albums and scrapbook like the speed of lightening  will be a breeze. 


If you are not a scrapbooker, or if you like my style of stamping, you might want to pay attention now.  I have decided to host a scrapbook afternoon on December 19th from 1pm to 5pm, where we will listen  to Christmas carols, eat some yummy treats and drink some hot drinks.  Staying in your pjs will make it that much more fun.    We will create a 6×8 Holiday Album.  Class fee is 69$ and includes a 64$ goodie bag.  You will leave with a full 12 or 24 sheet spread and album.  You pick…


If you can’t attend, you will have the option to get this class online.  It’s simple. You just need to order the project from me and will get instructions and/or mini videos as well.  How cool would it be to just have to slide in your pictures in your album spreads after the Holidays.  Hello December 2015!!!  You’ll get to keep those precious memories in a glam kind of way.


Have I got you excited yet?  To sign up, EMAIL ME or order online your products HERE.


Don’t forget to look at the online store.  The super extravaganza sales end today, shop now HERE.

Getting ready to say farewell

Sale-a-bration sale is almost over!  4 Days left.  I admit I used the Sale-a-bration stamp set Bliss or in french Joie, again and again.  It was my #1 favorite.  Had a workshop this morning, and this is one of the cards we made.  I did add a little preview from the next 2011-2012 Catalog, the four frames stamp set.  Also, there is only 1 month left for the Occasions mini, and we don't know if any of these products are coming back, most of them likely not!  So I have highlighting them, like the Rosettes!  One of my workshop attendees, Carmen said to me today that I should have been born in those "vintage"days.  She said she always can recall when it's a "Kim Card".  What is your style?  Tell me what do you like?  I think it will be one of my questions next month with my Downline.  I have used two backgrounds stamp set for this card.  Can you guess which ones they are?  I have a new favorite… Wonderfully Worn.  It creates these dots just like the spritzer tool 🙂


Here is a close up of the specs from the Wonderfully Worn Background.  Add this one on your wish list it's a must!

I also have been creating and prepping for our second Creative Escape Weekend and the projects are fabulous.  The sad part is that I cannot share with you until it's over.  But I designed 4 wowser scrapbook pages for attendees.  Also have created  a circle scrapbook in a box, a delicious &  rich color canvas, cupcake treats, fabric galore projects…  I can't wait to share with you after the retreat.

Products used:

Stamp set:  Four Frames #123442 (c) #123440 (w), Bliss SAB stamp set (w) #121851, (c) #123217 or Joie # (w) 123240 (c) #123242, Sanded #109294 and Wonderfully Worn#118533 background stamp

Ink:  Pink Pirouette #111838, Crumb Cake #121030

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!

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

Stampin’the night away…

Hey! it's been a while!  I have been in my studio stampin' away.  Prepping for my cupcake cuties team meeting – Xmas party.  They rock my world and I wanted to thank them for being part of my life.  In this time of giving, I got them each a décor accents 12×12 chunky frame which we enjoyed decorating, while listening to Christmas Music, ate amazing food & shared tips.  Thanks to Veronique who brought me from town a delicious Chai tea from Starbucks, your awesome!  We don't have Starbucks in my town!  Thanks to Manon who gave me cupcake pyjas for the holidays, what a sweetheart.  And thanks to everyone of you who spent the afternoon with me.  We also got to play with Occasions mini products.  And some left with great gifts and prizes too.

This Decor element chunky frame is on sale 20% off until December 16th, item code:  #124075.  I also enjoy using my stencils.  These are all in the Definitely decorative brochure.

I must be in a "lovy dovy" kind of mood, sharing pictures of my husband and I.  This picture was taken on my first incentive cruise that I earned with Stampin'up!

Here is Veronique perfecting a classic look with her decor frame

Please do stop by to see me these decorated frames are much better to view in person, they are stunning!

Some applied craft ink only others applied paste.  I used the paste, love texture! The important part is to emboss the image so it stays put!

Frame Gift Bundle #124075 $23.12
