Hannah's Post

Yes...I am still alive! Let me tell you, it's been quite a couple of weeks. We've had 2 sinus infections, bronchitis, teething toddler, calendar class (which I loved and thank-you to all who came out!) So I am so sorry for the no posts, but it's been CRAZY to say the least. Now since I have not had time to create anything new other than our club page (which I'll post after Monday), I decided to post a craft that my daughter Hannah and I did a couple weeks ago. Hannah is three and LOVES to stamp! So one day while I was finishing up a project she wanted to stamp, so instead I gave her some pieces that I was using for an upcoming project (some snowman treat bags). This is her take on my creation! She had lots of fun and I had just as much fun watching her little mind work....both her and Kayla amaze me!

On another note...I have decided to try and keep some sort of order to my blogging. I really don't want to be one who has a blog that people are checking out but are disappointed to not see a new post. So my new goal is to post three times a week; Sunday, Wednesday and Friday. I am going to give this a try and hopefully you will all keep coming back! Thanks so much for your patience! Steph

Herb Expressions

Hello All. Hope you all had a good week-end and have not caught what seems to be going around house! That's my first excuse for the 5 day no post, my second is I have been VERY busy! I received my first order for pre-made cards! I was honoured to be asked to make some Thank-you cards for the Four Counties Foundation so this week-end mom and I finished off 20 cards ( I know it doesn't sound like many, but it was a little time consuming, but I enjoyed every minute of it!) I have also been asked to design some Christmas cards to sell as a fundraiser for the Four Counties Hospital, so I did, designed them all! I'll be doing a post later this week with the details. Hope you like my creation, thanks for stopping by!

Welcome Baby Noah!

Congrats to the Mooser family on the safe arrival of baby Noah (love the name btw!) Hope you like today's card; I pulled it from my box of cards ( I now have pre-made cards - I'm ahead of the game!) This one's going out to Nicole and family. The stamp set is "Wild About You" (retired) and the "New Baby" is stamped from the set "Fun and Fast Notes". The colours are Whisper White and Bashful Blue. I used some Sale-a-bration paper for the background. Not sure if you can see behind the giraffe, I tried scanning the card but it was really bright and hard to see, so I used the camera, but it still seems hard to see parts; but I used the Sanded background stamp to give it a little more dimension. I also used the Sanded stamp under the greeting. Tied on a little whisper white gross grain ribbon ontop of a small strip of Bashful Blue punched with the Scallop Edge punch, and there you have it! Thanks for looking!

Good afternoon! Hope you liked my card yesterday, cuz here's another one featuring the "Cottage Wall" DSP! It's a card I made for my mom's birthday, and as I am dog sitting this week-end for her, I borrowed it to scan since I forgot to do so when I made it. I took this picture of Hannah and Kayla in the summer at my mom's. When I saw the Cottage Wall DSP I knew I had to incorporate it with my mom's beautiful flower garden. Not sure if you can relate to this but since I've been using the Stampin'Up! Colours and paper religiously, I will notices things that coordinate with them...this was the case with the garden. I thought the flowers matched the Razzlebery perfectly. Colours for the card are Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry. I used the large Scallop die and my Big Shot with the Razzleberry paper. I then used my circle scissors and Orchid Opulenceto mat the picture I cut out using the circle scissors as well. A piece of retired kiwi kiss striped ribbon to finish it off. The stamp set I used is the "All Holidays" stamp set. Hope you had a delicious turkey dinner and thanks for checking in! Steph

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving All! Hope you are all enjoying a nice turkey dinner. We spent the day at Appleland - and it was awesome! Needless to say though, the wee ones had a little too much fresh air and were a little on the cramky side for the evening, so instead of not doing a post (as I haven't been able to escape to my scraproom) I decided to post pics of where I do my creating and workshops. The first pic is one of a workshop I did last month and the other two are pics of my scrap room. I'm hoping to escape there shortly so I can post a new creation for you tmw. Thanks for dropping by!

Frankie and Friend

Good evening everyone! Sorry for the "no" post for the past couple days. We had our club nights Friday and Monday so it's been a busy household. Thanks for all the clubbers who were able to make it, and to all that placed their order. Our hostess Ellen was able to do some fun shopping! So here are my little guys that I would like to say I came up with, but I did spy them on another blog - so although I altered them to make them my own, the original idea is not mine :( Both are made with (yes you guessed it) the Top Note die! Frankie is made with Green Galore (Bold Brights) and Dracula is Pale Plum (Soft Subtle). Basic Black is used their hair ( I used the oval punch to create the look for Dracula). Their eyes are made with the 1" and 3/4" circle punches. I also used the Sanded background stamp with Real Red for Dracula's eyes, and his fangs are the large Star Punch with Real Red on the tips. Hope you like!

What U'R Missing!

Another dreary day ugh! Well I guess it's a good night to get together and stamp! Tonight is my Scrappin Gals club night and if you're not a member this is what you're missing! I used the Sweet Centres stamp set and Sanded background stamp (thanks again mom!), Basic Black, Whisper White, Old Olive and some retired Halloween DSP (sorry it's retired, but this year's paper is really cool!) Ink is Basic Black, Whisper White, Old Olive. It's such an easy card and looks great! Sooo, if you would like to be able to make one of these for FREE you need to get a few friends together and make a Stampin/Scrappin Club. Scrappin Gals meet once month and agree to order $30.00 each month out of the catalogue, and each take a turn hosting. SO you receive $30.00 of product, a free project to make yourself and take home, PLUS you take a turn being the hostess to receive free stamp sets and free product. E-mail me if you're interested!

Stay dry out there!
