Kayla and Benny

Happy Friday!  It's a BEAUTIFUL day here at the having way too much fun with a great group of ladies and my laptop :)  So yesterday I posted Hannah and Butterscotch so today is Kayla and Benny.  These pages are from the One Great Year (think that's what it's called) template and then changed slightly to make my own.  What do you think?  I've got 14 pages done...been a little slower today, catching up on Heather Summers online class - which I've learned ALOT!  Thanks Heather :)

A little MDS treat...

How cute are these?  And well I can't take the credit for them but had to share!  These are all designed by Heather Summers (THANKS HEATHER!) and they are SO simple to put together.  In MDS you make an 8.5x11 sheet with 4 images (all the same)...send the 8.5x11 to the printer, cut in four, some sticky strip and a treat and VOILA!  SO easy!  Hope you're having a great Friday, we're having Club night tonight, Open House and Glencoe Fair tmw, and Miss O comes to visit for Sunday, going to be a great weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!

Club Night..YAY!

Hello!  So I'm getting very excited for Hallowe'en, which isn't really like me!  I'm not a huge fan of the holiday, but now that the kids are a bit older, I must admit I'm looking forward to it :)  Today's post is one of the projects we'll be making tmw night for Club...I still have 2 spots if you feel like coming and making so super cool's a $35.00 order or $20.00 pick!  E-mail if you think you would like to join.  This features my new favourite SU embellishment...GOOGLY EYES!  Love these little things!  Paper is off the clearance rack...Wicked Fun I think it's called, and the stamp set it the ghouly ghouls from the mini (think that;s the name!)  Anywho, gotta get back to paper cutting and cleaning!  Have a great night!  Steph

Thank goodness for coffee!

Well we're almost half way through the week!  The girls seem to be settling into school nicely.  Tmw we're off to dance registration and Thursday is the Meet the Teacher bbq, so lots going on this week!  This is something I saw on Heather's MDS class, and I had to re-create it to make it my own.  I used the same sayings but changed the fonts and added some stamped words as well as a picture of some beans at the bottom right.  I think I'll print a large print and either laminate it or frame it for my kitchen or dining room.  Well I'm going to get some things done for my Hallowe'en class next Friday.  Remember it's not just for Club members, all are welcome :)  Take care and thanks for stopping by :) Steph

More Pony Party!

Ever wanted to make a personalized party?  Well MDS makes it super easy!  I used the Timeless Alphabet punch set to make the letters to spell HAPPY BIRTHDAY HANNAH, coloured them in with DSP, added the pony and the grass punch, uploaded and sent it to Costco and printed each letter as a 5x7, and so for $5.65 I have my very own personalized banner!  Hannah was over the moon with it in our living room.  And now I'm going to frame the letters for her room (just her name).  Love it!  Well it's been a busy one, and off for a nice walk.  Hope you had a great weekend, we had a blast, will post some MDS soon of Hannah and Butterscotch today, so cute!  Thanks for stopping by :)

Pony Party

Happy Friday All!  Well as you know it's been a busy week with kiddies heading back to school, showing the house (yes with literally 3 hours notice!) and Hannah's birthday is Sunday!  So I'm sad to say I wasn't able to make any invites up, I literally got on the phone and called her 3 closest friends and invited them for a sleepover this Saturday.  So today I have been MDS'ing like crazy!  I've made this super awesome birthday banner, cupcake pics, signs, party hat decorations, it's awesome!  We;re doing a My Little Pony theme (but just Butterscotch since that;s her favourite).  My dad and I are heading to Greenhawk today to get her a grooming kit for the real Butterscotch.  I think spending more time with the horses will help build Hannah's confidence, and I think it's time for me to return to having Miss Dixie in my life, she's been put on hold for long enough I think.  So I'm very excited to start what feels like a new chapter.  OK enough babbling!  This little poster was super quick thanks to some Disney clipart!  Just downloaded the pony, added some text and background DSP, grass punch and Cheerful Treat border - VOILA!  Have a great day!

Week 1 almost done!

Hi All! Whew it's been a week!  Hannah started Grade 1 Tuesday and let me say, I think it's been harder than JK!  She's not in her friends class and it is really upsetting her.  Lets hope Kayla's first day tmw goes better!  Today's card is another one that I made at Heathers,  I cannot remember the real name of the stamp set but it is in the holiday mini. I LOVE the chevron embossing folder, I can see this one being used alot!  And I must say I have warmed up to the mason jar set :)  What I love about this card is the framelits.  This is probably one of my favourite new SU products, simply because there is so much more value with being able to have the same shape but in different sizes, love it!  Any who, off to finish cutting some paper for my fab ladies in Strathroy, can't wait to see them!  Remember to msg me if you would like to come to my Hallowe'en class in September :)  Have a great night, Steph

Googly Ghouls

I am on a roll! September 3rd and I'm 2 posts in - YEAH!  This card is one that I made at a class at Heather Summers...I LOVE her classes :)  What I love about this card is it makes me want to make Hallowe'en cards, when normally I just wouldn't think to make them for this occasion, but now I think I'll make a few!  We'll be making a similar one for Club night along with a treat bag so we can all make our own this year :)  One thing that I used for the first time is the Crystal Effects, and I LOVE it!  The 2 black buttons aren't actually buttons, they're paper buttons and then the Crystal Effects is added on and Voila, a shiny button, fun eh?  And the other thing that I was SUPER excited about was the googly eyes!  I will say that once again SU has risen above, just like with their pearls and rhinestones, these eyes take the cake.  Anywho, back to work, have a wonderful Labor Day!  Steph

Love you Stampin'Up!

Happy Sunday All!  Having a nice relaxing one around here so thought I would get a little MDS done.  I'm working on a wall collage for my dining room.  I had made these up yesterday without using any digital stamps but thought this morning, the French Foliage set would really finish this off.  So I went to download it and wouldn't you know I qualified for a FREE download!  So to my nice surprise I was able to download this one for free, made my morning (even though it's only $12.00, still made my day!)  So I added the leaves and script to the corners and I really love the outcome!  Hope you have a great Sunday, off to prep for my September Club/Class, details coming soon!  Take care, Steph
