Sweetness Unlimited

Hello all!  Hope you had a good weekend!  Had a good one myself, out in some time at Hannah and Kayla's daycare BBQ (which I sliced 4 bags of onions for and now have 2 large ziploc bags full in fridge - onion soup anyone?), did some shopping with lil sis, had another wonderful experience with Staple on Wonderland (sarcasm there - only ever go to Wellington - Wonderland is a nightmare!) and topped it off with a lovely baby shower for twins Deklan and Phoenix - who are super cute - congrats Julie and Nick!  So onto today's post - my little baby card.  I did one up similar for Deklan and Phoenix, only using blue paper and blue on the bears, and of course there were 2 bears!  The bear set is not retiring but the 'welcome' baby set is, it's called Sweetness Unlimited, only $9.95 in the current catty but will no longer be available after June 30th!  I'll be placing an order on the 30th for anyone who needs something off the retired list, just e-mail me and I can send it in!  Hope you have a great night and good start to the week tmw!  Thanks for stopping by, Steph

Swirls and Curls

Happy Monday to you all!  Hope you all had a good Father's Day weekend.  The girls and I spent most of the weekend in the backyard, had little scrappin time with my mom, so a great weekend was had!  Here's a card we made at the last crop day.  I really love this hostess set, it's in the new mini and is available for FREE until the end of August, all you need to do is host a workshop or gather orders for a book party, minimum $200.00 party (which lets face it, for all us addicts, it isn't hard!)  SO if you're interested in this set and would like to host a party send me a line!  Have a great night and thanks for stopping by, Steph.

Marker Technique Class

Good evening!  As promised, here is a taste of what I did Saturday at the Heather Summers demo event.  These will be cards that we will be creating in my Marker Class, date to be in early July.  This is a great class to teach another way to use the  Stampin Up markers, I was completely WOWED when she showed us and can't wait to share with you all!  I will post details on the class asap.  Hope to stamp with you all soon!  Steph

Glencoe Club Night

HELLO!! Yes I'm still here, what can I say, it's been more than crazy!  I was so lucky to be able to go on Hannah's school trip, work (not so lucky) Club Night Friday and then my all day event with Heather Summers, so I have finally found my way back to my PC :)  I must say, Saturday's event with Heather was AMAZING!  I have so many great things to share and will be posting them over the week.  Today's post is of the page we made Friday night for Club night.  We used Bermuda Bay (sorry it's retired, but Tempting Turquoise would work too), DSP is from the new mini (the proper name escapes me) and we added chipboard coloured using Craft Pacific Point and then added Iridescent Ice embossing powder, heated with the heat gun to give that sparkly look.  The word "sweetness' is stamped using the Broadsheet alphabet (LOVE IT) and the word "always" is from the Define your Life set, which is retiring so if you like it order it now!  Also used is the photo corners punch around the pic of Hannah, this too is retiring and I highly recommend it :)  Well that's all for now, will be back tmw with more from Saturday!  Thanks for stopping by, Steph

Good bye to a Classic

Hello All!  Hope you are having a great day - I LOVE this weather!  Today's post is a card I made at a class with Heather Summers.  As you all know I am a huge fan!  I'm so excited to spend next Saturday learning more about the Stampin'Up! world with Heather.  Now onto the card...this uses a set that is retiring the end of this month. I'll be honest, I never noticed the set in the catalogue til I went to Heather's class, and I really do like it!  I think the adornment (key) finishes off the card nicely!  Colours are Night of Navy, Whisper White and Pumpkin Pie.  This card is pending being mailed til I hear about the Postal strike, then off to Timmins it goes for Grandpa Glenny's birthday.   That's all for today, I'll be back tmw as I'm finishing off my newsletter and finalizing some dates for workshops and classes, so stay tuned!  Thanks for stopping by!  Steph
