House is sold & Holiday Extravaganza!

Hey Everyone,

Just wanted to pop in an let you know that I sold my house! And it has not been any less crazy around here! Now we have the new task of trying to find a new house! We have a really long closing so I am not too worried about it. It's fun actually. Much more fun than cleaning and packing up all your crap! :)

Anyhow, just wanted to remind everyone that today is the last chance to get the Holiday Extravaganza items! If you haven't checked it out, you should! There are great bundles available at AWESOME prices! For example you can get the following:

Heart to Heart Bundle for only $34.95! It includes the "Love you much" stamp set, the Heart to Heart punch and the 1/2" Pretty in Pink striped grosgrain ribbon!! It would cost you $70 to buy these individually. That's 50% off the regular cost! Its a great chance to get an early start on your Valentine's day cards!!

But that's not the only thing available, check out the deals! There are tons of different bundles and other discounted products. Stamp sets, ribbon, buttons & brads, glitter and punches! Stock up for yourself or for Christmas presents, but shop now because the sale ends TODAY!!!!
To place an order either visit my online shop or email me to place an order directly.

Stay tuned tomorrow for my count down to Christmas. Consider it an advent calendar of deals, ideas and more!

Club projects, and Santa's Workshop

Hey All,

I just wanted to pop in quickly and share with you my projects for Club this week and give you a reminder about Santa's Workshop.
I really appologize for the pictures, but one of the hazzards of living out of boxes, is that you don't know where anything is, and I couldn't find my camera last night. So once again I had to post an iPhone pic. Anyhow, we are only making 2 projects this month because they are a little more involved. The Technique this month is sponging. This tag was made almost entirly using the Big Shot. A piece of cardboard was cut out using the Top Note die, and the birds and flowers are from the Birds and Blooms sizlet dies. The ribbon used is the Sleigh Bells ribbon from the Mini. The sentiment is from the All Holidays set. The inspiration for this tag comes from Andrea Walford's blog from last Christmas.

The second project is all Blair. I have been wanting to make a snowglobe out of the treat cups since I first saw them. I however, packed my white glitter which was to be snow, so instead we stamped the snowflakes from the Hostess level 2 set called Holiday punches and them punched them out using the Boho Blossoms punch. This card uses a lot of stamp sets. The snowman is from the level 2 hostess set from the Holiday Mini, as well as the snowflakes on the Night of Navy piece. The Trees in the background are from Lovely as a Tree. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. The base of the globe is from Sweet Centres. It is actually the ornament top but we cut off the hook part.

Anyhow, just a reminder about Santa's Workshop this Sunday! 14 vendors, one stop Xmas shopping and chance to WIN a gift basket worth OVER $300!!! Hope to see you there.

My house is on the market & Event reminders!

It is official, my house is on the market! It has been a crazy two weeks getting it ready, but in the end I think (or rather hope) that it is worth it. We will know better next week if we get any offers! (*crosses her fingers*)

Life however continues in the mean time. I have LOTS of events coming up. Registration for my Christmas Stamp-a-stack is still open. 16 cards $39 (or FREE with a $100 order placed that day). Join me on Nov. 28th at 1pm. You even get to check out my NEW stamping studio (of sorts). I have been relegated to the basement as we staged our house for sale, but it's a good thing for sure. Now all my stuff and the work area are in the same place. I LOVE it! I am starting to get excited for my new home (even though we haven't picked it out yet) because I will get my very own Stampin' Studio!! Can't wait! I will take some pictures of the new space later this week.

Just a reminder that my Christmas Gift sale is on Sunday at 1pm in the Banbury Community Centre. Drop by if you can. There will be a HUGE gift basket to draw for valued at over $300!! I have organized 14 Direct Sales vendors who will have tons of things for sale! Visit my table for an additional door prize draw and a Christmas Make n'take. The vendors included are:

My first ever Christmas Stamp-a-stack!

What's a Stamp-a-stack you ask? It's a great opportunity to make a bunch of cards, and I do all the prep work for you!! Come to my place on Nov. 28th at 1pm to make 16 cards! Wow! We will be making 4 of each of 4 different designs!! Cost for the Stamp-a-stack is $39 or FREE with a $100 order placed that day.

RSVP now to book your spots, space is limited.

We will be making a variation on this card. I actually sent these out as my Xmas cards last year. It's hard to see from the picture but the white paper on the bottom of the card is actually Shimmer paper. It's sooo beautiful in person. This card can also be changed around with a different sentiment to send to people who don't celebrate Christmas too!

Hope to see you there!

Just checking in......

Life is NUTS! I am currently taking a quick break from packing up all of my belongings, to clear my house out to get it on the market! I am going to say this right now........ "I AM NEVER GOING TO DO THIS EVER AGAIN!!". I have no idea how some people move every few years! This is HELL! Then again, I am not only sorting through our stuff, but my parents stuff, and even some of my grand-parents stuff because this house has been in our family for over 50 years, since it was first built! But, I keep on thinking about the light at the end of the tunnel, which is a larger home, more space for everyone, and my new Stamping studio!! YES!

Anyhow, thought I would share something with you today. It's another card made with my Digital studio. This one uses the most amazing Medallion stamp which is an add-on to the program and an absolute must have! The beauty of the digital program, is that you can adjust the size of the image. I can make the medallion as large or small as I want!

The colours I am using are Pretty in Pink, Creamy Caramel, Very Vanilla and Chocolate Chip.

What do you think?

Just an update on Santa's Workshop, I am now up to 12 confirmed vendors! Make sure to join us on Nov. 22nd!!! It's going to be a fantastic sale! See you then.
