Last weekend I went to Angela Mckay‘s Stampin’ Up Open House, and I indulged in some paper crafting goodies (Hello cute new stamp sets). Looking at some of her examples gave me some new ideas on card techniques. Later last week I decide to make cards for the staff to say thank you for everything they did for me. I also indulged myself some more and FIANLLY bought a heat gun and embossing stuff. I am now officially hooked on Heat Embossing.
Here are some of the cards I made. I am super happy with the way they turned out, and will definitely be making them again.
I also needed to make a Wedding card for the BF, so I used the same Triple Stamp technique of the second card, added some embossing, and voila!
Happy Grey Cup Sunday! Go Lions Go!
I am getting ready to cheer on our CFL team as they compete for the cup. I thought I would squeeze in a quick paper craft I made.
Remember last year I whipped up a couple gift card holders? Well, I did it again! Except I used inspiration from Mary Fish over at Stampin’ Pretty, one of my favourite Stampin’ Up demos!
I intended to use this Christmas paper for an album, but that never happened. Instead I used it for 4 gift card holders for our church. I love the way they turned out!
There’s my Squee! for this week, check out the others here!
Last week bestie, bestie’s sister and I did our annual Christmas Card Class. This year we did it with the North Shore Stamper, aka Angela in North Vancouver. Man oh man did we make some lovely cards!
Here they are! We made 5 of each for a total of 15. The best part is that we had a choice of 5 to chose from. I love the different mix and feel of each card. I have to say, the wow for this week applies not only to the cards, but to Angela herself. It’s not often you meet someone you instantly want to be best friends with. She is so full of energy and positivism and happiness and I know I speak for the 3 of us when I saw we had a blast and will definitely be working with her again! Thanks Ange!
So that’s my ABCs for this week, only 3 weeks left! After this week things are going to get crazy for me… stay tuned for that… XO.
Hip Hip Hourray!!!
Today’s ABCs is a very exciting one, for me at least. A few weeks ago I entered a draw on Angela McKay’s blog the “North Shore Stamper” and low and behold, I won!! I never win anything!!!
I was able to chose a stamp set from a list, and I chose “Something to Celebrate” as I can never have enough greetings for cards. When I went to pick up the stamp set I noticed Angela had thrown in some extra goodies! A catalogue and a mini summer catalogue! And a thank you card, of course! How sweet! Thanks Angela!!!
That’s my ABCs for this week, as always, check out the other ABCs here. Have a good one, XO.
