4 days until I move!!!

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to check in to let everyone know that I am still around, busy packing and getting very excited to move into the new house.

My stamp space is all packed up :( which really sucks, but before long I will be in my NEW stampin' studio! It's going to take quite a lot of work to get it where I want to be. For starters the ceiling height is only 5'10" at the moment, which only means that my husband can't comfortably stand in it.... but most of you are shorter than that :) You only need to sit quickly if you are short, and no jumping up and down with excitement! But no worries, my husband plans to raise the ceiling for me as soon as possible.

I am really looking forward to this new chapter in my families life. I really believe that this move will bring with it lots of new opportunities for all of us. I will try and check in from time to time during the next few weeks, and hopefully I can share with you some pictures of our place, the progress and of course the insanity!!

Last Mystery Club in Toronto!!

Thursday & Friday marks my last Mystery Hostess Club in Toronto. This event is open to anyone. The "cost" for coming is placing an order for at least $25 (before tax and shipping) by Friday at 6pm. All qualified orders will be entered into a draw to win ALL the hostess benefits! And as an extra special bonus I am DOUBLING the Hostess product dollars earned! The more people who join, the more hostess dollars that can be earned!! It's really a win win situation for everyone because not only do you have a chance of being the hostess for the month, but each person who attends Club (Thursday or Friday at 7pm) get to make 3 fabulous projects.
Seeing as the weather has been soooooooooooo beautiful and spring like this week, I was in a flowery mood, and I have been seeing so many great flower projects around the Internet lately.

This first card is a total CASE (copy and share everything) from my good friend and Upline Caroline LeBel. This is made with DSP and the Ornament punch. The pointy bottom is snipped off to create this super cute vase. I used a sponge dauber to add some shadow to the vase.

The second card has these beautiful little flowers on them. I saw these and absolutely fell in love! They are made with the Scallop circle punch and they are soooooo super easy! I can't wait to teach everyone how to make them. And you can use them on more than just cards. I would love to decorate a present, an Easter basket or you could use them on napkin rings for a party or a wedding.
The last project is not a card, or a box. We are simply making these beautiful paper rosettes. I have been seeing these all over the place lately. Dina Anker demonstrated them at the last Stampin'palooza. I decided not to have them stuck to anything because I thought everyone might have their own ideas about what to do with them. They use the Eyelet border punch for the lacy look.
If you like what you see here, contact me ASAP so that I can have enough supplies prepared for you. Remember all qualified orders will go into a draw for the coveted Hostess rewards!! And it's worth double the rewards!!!
Hope to see you tonight or tomorrow.

A BIG card for a baby shower

A few weeks back we had a baby shower for one of my friends at work. We needed to make a BIG card so that everyone could sign it. I hummed and hawed over how to make a big card, seeing as the biggest piece of paper I had was 12x12.

So I decided to attach 2 81/2 x 11 pieces of cardstock together with a wide piece of cardstock. I don't offhand remember the dimensions of it, but you can see it. It's the chocolate chip piece on the top.

The background of the card is rolled using the Nursery Letters Wheel using Pretty in Pink ink. I love how cute this card is. I really liked working in the larger format.

Products used: All Stampin' Up
Stamp sets: Nursery Necessities, Nursery Letters Wheel, Well Scripted
Card stock: Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Stampin' Dimensionals, Pretty in Pink Striped grosgrain ribbon, sponge daubers, paper snips, Sale-a-bration Scallop Trim Border Punch.


New look heading this way!

Hi Guys,

hope everyone is doing well! We are now in the final month until we move!! I can't believe it. There is lots to do in the days and weeks to come, so unfortunately I won't be able to post much here. I hope I can get a few moments now and again, but it will be mostly Stampin' Up! news and updates for the move. There won't be much time to craft, and after my Mystery Hostess event next week I will have to pack up my studio!!! That is going to be hard, you know the second everything goes into the boxes I am going to be hit with all sorts of inspiration.

Well then, it's a good thing I have been playing with MDS (My Digital Studio) a lot lately. If I can't use paper and stamps, I can do the next best thing and work digitally. So, I hope to bring you some of those creations.

I am currently working on a new design for my blog, so stay tuned for that, and I have just redesigned my newsletter header etc. I hope you can pop by once in a while to see what's up, hear the news and get the first glimpse to my new studio!! I think that's what I am most excited about with the new house..... :)
