NEW Card Buffet!

I have a brand new Card Buffet scheduled for May 17th!

I have around 20 NEW cards ready for you to come and create, along with the option to create some past cards, too!

This card buffet will be held on Wednesday, May 17th, from 7-9 pm at the Wizard's Hangout (my home studio).

Cost is $25 for all you can make, which includes envelopes.

How it works:  I have numerous different all-occasion card designs (multiples of each) pre-cut and ready in separate baskets for you to make.  You get to choose the designs you want to make, and make as many as you want, in 2 hours.  

The baskets and supplies will be on the tables so everyone can start promptly at 7 pm.  Then at 9 pm I will collect the baskets, and you will have a bunch of wonderful creations to take home with you.

I have sample cards for you to work from and they will not be complicated designs.  I want this to be for everyone, no matter your crafting expertise!

There is room for 8-10 people, so please sign up soon!  All you need to bring is your favourite adhesive, pop-dots, and scissors.

I am super excited to have you here for a fun evening of crafting!

Looking forward to seeing you all!

Dreamin' Big... Just For You

Here's a fun and colourful card I made with just a few strips of paper from the Dreamin' Big paper packet, and the Dreamin' Big stamp set with matching Thin Cuts dies.

(Inspired by a card by Close To My Heart)

This set must have been super popular.

With the sale that went on last month, all the Thin Cuts are now gone.

But the stamp set is still available until the end of April, and then it will be retired (as well as the paper packet)!

Happy creating!  :)

Forever & Always - Cut Above Kit

Today is Good Friday!

I hope you are all enjoying your day.

I have a quick share for you today.

It is using one of the Cut Above Kits, Forever & Always.

I changed it up by not following the directions, but by making it my own.  ;)

What a lovely layout, the patterns are soft and pretty, and that whitewashed woodgrain... ack, love it so much!

I also made a card, by adding some ribbon, a few clear sparkles (coloured with a ShinHan marker), and a retired sentiment CTMH stamp, Sending Love.

Don't forget that you can get the Cut Above Kits for 50% off this month, so they are only $9.50! 

That's a great deal.

Happy creating!  :)

And these last two are my designs.  Love how they all turned out.

So fun!

I will be definitely be using these for our trip to Maui.

Happy creating!  :)

Sending Smiles with Flock Together


It feels like forever since I posted here.  Just been a busy week, I guess.

Take a look at this cute card I made using Flock Together, the April Stamp of the Month, and the polka dot paper from the Whimsy Fundamental pack.

The sentiment is from one of the stamp sets included with the Cricut Flower Market Collection.

Sweet and simple.

Happy creating!  :)

I also have to share this adorable CTMH April Stamp of the Month set, Flock Together.

Seriously cute, right?

I love quails, they are so darned cute to watch running around.  I wish we had them up North, where I live.

But since we don't, I bought myself a garden set of a family of quails last fall and put it away for the winter, and now that Spring is around the corner, I am getting excited to get to put them out in my flower garden.


Just a reminder, that this is the last month that you can order out of the Seasonal Expressions 1 catalog.

So be sure to order the items you want from it soon, as most of it is while supplies last.

And don't forget to check out the Going Soon and Clearance sections for some great deals.

Happy creating!  :)
