Sunday Share - Beautiful Blizzard Bundle and Video to start those seasonal cards!

It may seem early to start planning and making Christmas Cards, but the time will quickly come when you panic and wonder how to fit everything into only a few weeks (and then days!). So getting a start now while you have time to plan, create and relax will definitely make you feel so much better!

Today's share from the Holiday catalogue is a fun bundle called Beautiful Blizzard that can be used all through the winter season as it is full of snowflakes of all sizes and greetings that are not just for the holidays.

Look at the cards and projects created by Stampin' Up! for the catalogue -

and then at what the bundle includes - you can't go wrong buying the bundle as you save 10% right away so put it on your wish list or order now!  Or let me know you want it and I will add it to my order going in early this week - after my Make it Monday class tomorrow evening!
If you really like "seeing" before you buy, then check out this video from Stampin' Up! which gives you some great ideas and tips on using this awesome bundle -
Here's a card I made recently with the thinlits (thanks Stampin' Pretty for the idea), and added my greetings from the Merry Christmas to All Bundle (I'll share more on that bundle next time!) or you can click here to check it out now! I sponged colour onto my cardstock before die cutting the words and the snowflakes inside the card - I really like how that turned out!

It's not too late to book a spot for Make it Monday event tomorrow from 7:00 - 9:00 pm. This is a relaxing evening where you make a couple of cards, or even bring a project that you are stuck on how to finish it and we can brainstorm solutions for you!

Sunday Share - Dandelion Wishes makes card magic!

Have you ever looked at a stamp set and thought "I can make magic happen with those stamps"? Well, that's what I thought when I saw the Dandelion Wishes Stamp Set in the new Annual Catalogue in June . . .  and last month I was able to show my Stamp Club peeps just how easy it was to create some amazing cards with this set!

Here's what the Stampin' Up! concept artist created for the catalogue . .. . I love that they included more layouts in this catalogue for scrapbookers to see how easy it is to add some stamping interest to their pages . . . .

and here's the stamp set too . . . can't you just imaging how much fun you can have with this set? Click here and add it to your order today so you don't forget!

Here's a couple of the cards we made - the first card was coloured using a D clear block and scribbling Stampin' Write Markers on it, then spritzing with water and stamping on our cardstock - so easy and every card will be slightly different too!
The next card was made by folding the inner card layer in a few places, then adding coordinating Designer Series Papers and the greeting. You can put your message in the blank space, or write on the back of the card - and the best part is the base is a standard card size so it all fits perfectly into your envelope - happy face here!

My next Make it Monday event is September 17th at 7:00 pm so if you want to make some great cards to add to your giving box, then RSVP to join me - either on my website (under events) or message me so I know to prepare enough kits. Friends are always welcome too!

Shop online (click here) anytime for any of my card products or to get a start on your holiday cards - you will be so happy with the results you get!

Happy stamping!

Sunday Share - Making cards with The Wesbrooke Ladies

Sunday Share is a day late this week as we headed out camping yesterday, hoping to have some choices of spots with families heading back to school - I think the good weather must have delayed most peoples departures, as the campground was still super busy and only a few spots to choose from!

We lucked out though, and got a prime location where we were told by neighbouring campers that a trailer had pulled out only ten minutes before we arrived - sometimes the camping gods do look out for us! Here's our trailer set up for us to enjoy this week - and it's a breezy +20 C in the shade:
After traveling so much of the spring/summer, I finally got back to making cards with the ladies at The Wesbrooke in Pitt Meadows last month. They were super happy to be making cards again with me and hoped we weren't going away anymore to make me skip my monthly visit! I assured them any trips would now be worked around my class times so we could still make cards . . . here's a couple of pictures of them hard at work, and then showing off their card making skills!

And here are the cards we made close up - I try to have them make one card for any guys in their lives, and the other for the gals, and where I can I will give them alternate greetings to use such as Thinking of You, Thank You or Happy Birthday.

Only a few more days until you can see everything in the 2018 Holiday Catalogue on line (September 5th) - if you are one of my regular customers then I have either mailed a catalogue to you (if you are out of town, or order only online), or I have one in my studio waiting for you to pick up!  I will be announcing dates to come to my studio and try out some of the new products and when my Christmas/Holiday themed events will be happening so check out the next couple of weeks of posts for more information :-)

If you love Halloween, then you don't want to miss signing up for the September Paper Pumpkin kit - it is going to be "No Tricks, Just Treats" so you can imagine what that might be!
