Movin' On Up!

Hello Everyone!  Today's post is titled Movin' On Up as I feel like I'm movin' on up!  I now have a place for you to purchase my cards, The Package Nanny, here in Glencoe!  I have gift sets like this one here, as well as others all available for purchase.  $2.00 from every gift set will be donated to the E.L.M. Children's Centre here in Glencoe.  I will also have individual cards for sale there as well, so I'm very excited to have a store front for some of my work.  The gift set shown here is a package of 10 Thank you cards and envelopes.  The cards are made on Very Vanilla card stock and stamped with the Thank you Kindly set and 5th Ave set.  Colour's are Chocolate Chip, Melon Mambo, and Rose Red.  Get yours today!  Thanks for stopping by!  Steph

May Club Night

Evening everyone!  Just finished up a great night of card making with my mom and friend Amanda (thanks for coming ladies!)  Here's a pic of the page we did for last month's Club night.  We used Very Vanilla 12x12, Taken with Teal 4x11 and various pieces of Basic Black to mat the photo and greetings.  This is another pic I should've had hubby do as it is a little dark.  I hope you can see the detail in the butterflies.  They are stamped using an old hostess set, God's Beauty.  To get the nice coloured effect, stamp first with a lighter colour like Sahara Sand.  Chalk the colours you want to use onto the image and once coloured, re-stamp the butterfly using Stamp-a-ma-jig and Basic Black...VOILA!  You can even cut them out to make them pop out a little more.  We also played around with the wheels, we used the So Swirly Jumbo wheel and Romance Standard wheel.   I'm really lovin the wheels as it's a really cheap way to make your own DSP!  Have a good week-end and thanks for stopping by!  Steph

ELM Open House

Another post!  So I've been busy again and this time for Hannah and Kayla's daycare, ELM Children's Centre. My sister, mom and I have been making cards like crazy for the Open House tomorrow (come out and see us!) so we can raise money for the Centre.  Mother's Day cards are $2.00 each and the card packs are $12.00 each with 1/2 of ALL sales going to the daycare.  There will also be Pampered Chef, Epicure, Mary Kay, Tupperware, Avon and SheShe there, will be everything a mother could want under one roof!

Happy Mothers Day Albums

Good evening everyone!  Here's a couple albums I made up in preparation for Mother's Day.  We actually did the top one for Club night in April and had lots of fun.  Colours are Regal Rose, Rose Red, and Chocolate Chip.  DSP is the Sweet Pea out of the mini (sorry no longer available).  Measurements are: Regal Rose 6 1/4, Rose Red 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, and DSP 4 x 5 1/4 (this way you can use 1/3 of the paper, less waste!)  the band is 1 1/2 x 5 and I used a wheel (but can't remember which) to give it some colour. The flower is from the Vintage Vogue set and I used a strip of Chocolate Chip and punched with the Scallop Trim punch,  The greeting is from the Well Scripted set and I used the Circle Scallop and Big Shot to do the flap.  Stuck on some velcro and voila!  Below is an album I made at a workshop, that's where this idea came from, I just spruced it up a little!  Have a WONDERFUL MOTHER'S DAY!

Sneek Peek :)

Hello All!  Long time no post, I know!  Sorry these pics are a little dark, should've used my flash.  We were crazy busy with preparing for the Sarnia wedding show (which was awesome, thanks to all the Brides for stopping by our booth, and a special thanks to my mom for looking after the little ones so both Aaron and I could be there!)  I am working on building an invitation page on my blog but am meeting some challenges, so for the time being I thought I would post a sample invite that I made using a stamp set that will be featured in the new catalogue.  This one is called "Awash with Flowers", and as I've said many times I know...I wasn't crazy about it when I saw it but now that I've used it... I LOVE IT!!  And you may notice that I have used a couple colours that I have been missing for almost a year now...Pacific Point and Baja Breeze, my wish came true and Baja is returning!  (Not happy about losing Taken with Teal though :(  but I guess we can't have it all!  Hope you like and if you know of anyone interested in learning how to make their own invites or wanting them made, send me an e-mail!  Happy Monday all!  Steph
