I am so excited to share my news with all of you! For the second time this year I have had a project published in Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. You can find my project in the Fall 2018 edition!
I have been asked to guest design for the Stick it Down Team this month.
This is the design sketch that I was given to work with. The first thing that I noticed is the eye catching pieces that are positioned in a triangular position. This is a quite popular design in card making and scrapbooking. It has a way of drawing the eye.
Here is my interpretation of the above sketch. I hope you enjoy it and also that you enjoy these last few precious days of summer.
Supplies used in the creation of this card are:
Doodle Bug Design– Sweet Summer Collection paper, cardstock, doodle-pops 3D sticker, Icon stickers (beach ball & ice cream)
Pinkfresh Studio– emphemera (last days & summer rays), enamel dots
These were all products that I received in my July SCT Sampler.
Just a quick post today to show you what I made with the rest of the stuff I bought at the dollar store the other day. (Same shopping trip,as the black tinted glasses that I etched in previous post! 😉)
I while back I bought 3 rolls of burlap from the dollar store for $3 per roll. I have hung onto this all summer but I did see that these rolls are still available at my local dollar store. I hope this is something that they stock regularly because it is a great deal and I want to make more burlap crafts!
I make this autumn wreath for about $12 in supplies and it took a little less than 1 hour to complete! ALL of the supplies came from Dollar Tree except for the burlap that was Dollarama.
In the craft section I found the wire wreath base in square and round shapes. I bought both but only used the round one for this project. The patterned wire ribbon, mesh, pumpkin 3 pack, leaves in a pack of 2, scarecrows in a pack of 2, metal word 3 pack (saved 2 for future projects) and 2 pack of bows. Each package or item was $1.25!
I loved making this project! I am going to have to try this dollar store crafting again!

This is NOT craft related but it is life related so here goes.
My son’s ball hockey team stunk this season! Like seriously stunk! It was so hard to see them loose game after game. We were 1-11 at the end of the season which put us in last place.
It got to the point that none of the team even wanted to play anymore but most of them stuck through it. It really stinks getting blown out week after week and watching your kid be so hard on themselves. In our league the tournament structure was changed to have an A & B side winner for the first time that I had ever seen. Knowing that we had no hope in winning anything I still went through my usual drill of making playoff shirts to cheer on my player.
We played our first game. And guess what? We won! You would have thought that we had won the lottery that night everyone was crying and the kids dog piled in the middle of the rink. If they didn’t win another game the rest of the tournament I think they would have still been so happy!
We played again the next morning and we won again! WTF?
We did lose our 3rd game by 1 point but it was still enough to get us into the B side gold medal game!
We won gold! It was amazing!
My son is so proud of that medal. He slept with it that night and proudly wore it to school the next morning. He still occasionally walks around with it on!
It was hard earned.
The best part of this story is the life lessons that came with it. He learned that working hard doesn’t always mean success but you can’t succeed if you don’t. He learned not to give up even when he felt like it. He learned to take one for the team (his body was covered in bruises from blocking shots) He learned that he sometimes you don’t always get your way. ( he likes to play forward and is pretty good at it but coach tried to break the slump and shake things up a bit and put him defence and he is amazing at that!) Preserverance, drive and determination! He also learned to be a sweet, caring friend, consoling other team members. It is after all a team effort! These are all lessons that he never would have learned if we had a winning season!
I am back with one last project made for the Creative Moments Challenge Blog.
This week the challenge is SUMMER.
My sponsor for this weeks challenge is Rick St Dennis.
There are so many images and colouring pages to pick from so it was a hard to decision but since the theme was summer I chose the Helen’s Mice July digital stamp image!
Here is my finished project!
National sewing day is just around the corner do the theme this week is “show some stitching, real or faux”
I had the pleasure of using a Knitty Kitty image this week!
The image that I have chosen is the Cupcake Kitty. I coloured the kitty with Prismacolor pencils. I just added faux stitching around the edge of the stripped patterned paper using a fine black marker.
Digital kitty stamp- Knitty Kitty
“sweet” sticker-Jillibean Soup
I think that I am going to send this cutie to my niece for her 7th birthday this month. I hope she likes it!
Hi I am back with a couple of projects that I have made using the ever lovely Stamprints digital images.
I chose a clean, simple yet very elegant image. The image that I chose this month is the Tulips Vase.
I printed two of the tulips images. I was undecided what colour combo I would do for my project so I used both of the images coloured.
Here is card #1!
And here is card #2
With both projects I used the same supplies but in different colours.
Here is my supply list: Tulips Vase digital image from Stamprints, Spectrum Noir markers, textured cardstock is by Bazzill Paper, enamel hearts Doodlebug Designs, Happy Birthday Stamp By Lawn Fawn, CTMH polka dot ribbon, white cardstock Recollections
You can find the Tulips Vase image as well as many other Stamprints images on Etsy here Stamprints Etsy
Which colour combo do you like best?
You all know that I love to make cards and scrapbook. Some of you may also know that I also love to make things with my Cricut, like t-shirts and more. I bet not all of you know that I also like to make jewellery and hair clips.
Here are a few of my favourite jewellery pieces that I have made. I have kept some for myself, given some away as gifts and sold a whole bunch. Please contact me for custom orders!
Just this week I made these dragon scale earrings.
Here are some necklaces that I made today!
Well, what do you think?
The theme this challenge is humour! My sponsor is Dr. Digi’s House Of Stamps.
If you have never checked out Dr. Digi’s stamps you must! There are many fun stamps to choose from! The image that I chose for my project is Flossie Bumblethorp! She looks like she would be feisty!
Here is Flossie.
I thought that this colour combo matched the image so I layered up.
Here is the finished project!
