Sugar Rush Donut Cards

For these cards, I used the NEW CTMH Sugar Rush papers and the Sugar Rush Cardmaking stamp set and Thin Cuts dies.

This is such a fun stamp set to play with!  I love that it has matching dies, too.

Love, love, LOVE this card!

Note:  These cards are just some of the ones you can make in my upcoming Card Buffet...

January Card Buffet

Hi all, I am back with another Card Buffet!

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 Sunday, January 29th, from 1-3 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 1 pm.  Then at 3 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!

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

Looking forward to seeing you all!

Hello Lovely Stationery Box

I have seen these Stationery Boxes over the years, but have never made one, until now.

I used the new CTMH Hello Lovely papers for this set.

Love how it turned out!

You can find the instructional videos by Dannie Graves here:  Part 1 and Part 2.

I also came across a printable PDF file by Jackie Topa here.

Happy creating!  :)

Giveaway Winner!

Hey everyone!  I am back to announce the winner of my giveaway...

Congrats to Kris Price, who left a comment on my Facebook page!

I will just need your mailing address.

Hello Lovely - Just Married

I have been spending quite a bit of time playing with all the new products in the NEW CTMH Seasonal Expressions catalog.  Pure joy!  Creativity definitely nourishes my soul and it is always very healing for me.  ;)

Here is a card using paper from the new Hello Lovely paper pack, and the gold stripe is from All About the Gold Fundamentals.  The stamps with matching dies are from the new Hello Lovely Cardmaking Thin Cuts Bundle.

I gold embossed the images, and for the flowers, I coloured them in with my inks and waterbrush.

Happy creating!  :)

With Love Valentine Card

I paired the Adore You (January SOTM) stamp set with the recently retired Season of Magic stamp to make this card.

The With Love banner was cut out of white daisy cardstock, then sponged with Raspberry ink, and I added a little extra sponging to give the ends a little darker shade for added depth.  Then stamped the sentiment in black ink.

Lastly, I added some shimmer to the heart with a Shimmer Brush. 

Happy creating!  :)

National Papercrafting Month - Welcome Home Wreath Kit!!!

I wanted to share this with you all.  Here is the wreath I made with my Welcome Home Wreath Kit, celebrating National Papercrafting Month with CTMH!

It is so pretty, and I have it hanging in my studio.

Everything in the kit is die cut so all you have to do is pop the pieces out of the sheets and adhere them together with your favourite adhesive.

The circular base is a sturdy chipboard piece, which also has a die cut woodgrain pattern piece of paper to adhere right onto it.  So easy.

If anyone is interested in doing this as a class, or just needs some helpful tips on the flowers and succulents, please feel free to contact me by email.

I will mention that to make it easier to put together, a couple of useful tools are the Z1795 Quilling Tool, and Z1204 Bone Folder.  They aren't necessary, but do help for easy assembly.  

I love the gold sticker letters that come with the kit, so you can choose whatever you wish to put on the banner to customize your wreath.

There are four ways you can get the wreath kit:

  1. Buy it for $24.25—no qualifying purchase required!
  2. Get it for free with a qualifying $60 purchase!
  3. Get it for free by hosting a party that reaches the second level of Hostess Rewards.
  4. Get it for free when you sign up to be a Consultant!

 ***This kit is only available while supplies last during the month of January.

Happy creating!  :)
