Happy Saturday morning! I'm still here and had high hopes for doing a sale-a-bration countdown - however...I have been consumed by car shopping! Which may sound fun, but I found to be very stressful. My little cavalier has been such a great car to me, but has come to the point where she needs multiple repairs, so it was sink some money in or bite the bullet - so we bit the bullet, and am happy so say this week I should have a shiny new Jetta in my driveway. Ok, so that's that, now amongst all this car shopping, I had to pack for our weekend at the cottage, I literally pack my entire scrap room into totes and fill my sisters Explorer to the roof - very time consuming but worth every minute. So here we are, 10 of us crazy scrappers having a ball! And what am I doing? MDS'ing! I really want to finish up our Cuba album, so I have been switching from cardmaking to MDS, and since I forgot my camera to take pics of my cards, I will have to share some MDS with you! This is our favourite waiter in Cuba, Guillermo, I loved him and can't wait to go back and hopefully see him. Hope you like and enjoy the rest of your day, thought these bright colours might take away the cold March chill out there! Have a good one and thanks so much for stopping by! Steph

Happy Wednesday! How do you like this card? Well I can't take credit for this one! A very talented crafter in our group sent this to me and I had to share it - I LOVE it! The ribbon and brad really make a nice finishing touch on this - and of course it showcases our favourite time of the year - SALE-A-BRATION! You only have 10 days left to take advantage of these super FREE products! E-mail me if you would like to earn one of these :) Hope all is well and will be back tmw (I hope!) Thanks so much for stopping by :) Steph

Happy Saturday to you all! Hope you are able to get some R&R in this weekend…that’s what we’re doing this morning! Then it’s off to Niya’s birthday party…speaking of that I better get a card made up for that! On to today’s post, this is part of the project we will be making at Ange’s workshop on Sunday; the other part is a card (2B made today too!) OK, this page is another page featuring some awesome Sale-a-bration items…to begin with the Fresh vintage set was used with Daffodil delight all around the 12x12 piece of Daffodil Delight. It’s also used with Pool Party ink around the mat behind the pictures. The flowers along the left and on the ribbon and top corner are all from the Fresh Vintage set. I’ve said this before I know, but this was a set that didn’t really appeal to me…but again, once I used it I was on a roll. This page came to me very quickly and costs very little to make. The DSP is from the Everyday Enchantment SAB paper, and the Lucky Limeade ribbon is also from the Sale-a-bration catalogue. Super easy and I think super elegant…what do you think? Have yourself a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by today! Steph

Hello All! I’m just noticing that the bottom of my exclamation point has fallen off my page! Better go look for that! Tonight is Club night – very excited to see everyone! Today’s page is a mish mash of different things…a few sale-a-bration items such as the Brights Buttons (LOVE), Stripes Embossing folder (LOVE), and Sparkles stamp set (actual name escapes me, but LOVE it too) did I mention I LOVE sale-a-bration? Really, who doesn’t love FREE product!!! So colours are from the Brights family and it’s a very simple page…I cut some DSP from the Brights pkg to 4 x 1.5 and filled the bottom, the middle is Daffodil Delight ran through the Big Shot with the stripes folder, CELEBRATE is done on the Cricut (sorry not enough time to die cut all the letters so I cheated) and then the page is embellished with buttons and stars. The journaling is done on a small piece of Whisper White stamped with the Notes and Details set. Hope you like and looking forward to another fun filled Club night J Thanks for stopping by! Steph

Well I' supposed to be at work but received a call at lunch from daycare, and Hannah is sick with a fever of 102...so it was Tylenol, water, and Ariel, so while the house is quiet I thought I would put up a quick post. This is the card I mentioned in an earlier post...I'm just not too crazy about it. I LOVE the paper but think it might be just a little too busy all together for the shutter card...what do you think? My thought is the tri shutter card might be best left to more elegant types of paper or vintage.
Anyways, as promised (and late!) here are the dimensions to make these super cool cards!
Start off with a piece of 12x12 and cut to 5 1/2. Then take the piece of 5 1/2 x12 and place it longways on your paper trimmer or simply scored, and score at 2, 4, 8, 10. Then flip the piece in your trimmer so now it will be the length of your trimmer and measure in 1 1/2"...take your blade and start at the 2" mark and cut to the 10" mark (don't go past!). Now flip the paper and do the same to the other edge (so measure in 1 1/2" again and trim from the 2" mark to the 10" mark. Now time to decorate!Cardstock - 2 pcs of 5 1/4 x 1 3/4 DSP - 2pcs of 5 x 1 1/2
4 pcs of 1 3/4 x 1 1/4 4pcs of 1 1/2 x 1
Any questions please feel free to ask!
THanks for stopping by and have a super day!
