Playing Catch up

Hey everyone!  I apologize for the delay in posting.  July is a busy month for me with my son’s birthday, my father in laws, as well as Stampede and then some much needed time away with my husband. :)

In case you haven’t stopped by yet, you need to pop over to Red Carpet Studio and check out the new challenge.  The DT has some great projects with our GROWN UPS CHALLENGE

grown ups


THE CHALLENGE:  Create a project that features “a kid at heart.”  Amusement parks, summertime fun, family get togethers…we can’t wait to see your inspiration!

This is literally a fun challenge and I hope that you will stop by and play along with us.  We can’t wait to see your ‘kid at heart’.  I don’t have a project for this challenge but the rest of the DT has some great ones that will make you smile and we hope will inspire you to let loose your inner child :)


Hello everyone! There’s a new challenge up at Use Your Stuff this week.  Our theme is Leaves!  Now that it is summer here, it’s nice to see the leaves green and bright on the trees!

For the challenge, I decided to go with an ATC.  I found some cute leaf paper and added a heat embossed sentiment.  The butterflies are a glittered chipboard that I bought at M’s.  I hope you like it and hope you will play along with us this week.


Monster Jam fun

So last year we took Riley to his first Monster Jam..oh did that boy have fun! He was in monster truck heaven.  He brought his Gravedigger monster truck to be signed by the drivers, which looked soooo small compared to the real Gravedigger :)

I thought I would use some of those pictures for a fun layout for Renee’s chipboard/wood veneer challenge at Use Your Stuff this week.  I’m sure we all have tonz of these in our stashes, I know I do!  I just can’t get enough of them actually.  So make sure you play along with us for this week’s challenge!


Canuck Day!

Hey there!  Well it is a long weekend here in Canada.  July 1st is our Canada Day!  Everyone is getting ready for backyard barbecues, block parties and lots of fun!  Our challenge this week at Red Carpet Studio ties in with the festivities in both Canada and the USA coming up.  It’s all about being patriotic.



Using this film as inspiration, we would love to see your projects about patriotism….the DT has come up with some great projects for you to check out.  As for me, here’s what I have for you!

20140628_151353I found this digital image online and I loved that it picked out phrases that represents a lot of Canada, us as a country and from our national anthem.  Of course hockey is in there! (I am sooo not a hockey fan).  I also did it in the traditional red and white national color and believe it or not, I actually found some maple leaf ribbon that had been waiting and waiting to be used.  I hope you like it and we look forward to your projects in our challenge this week.


Fun with Gelatos

So our new challenge at Use Your Stuff this week is all about texture.  What better way to show texture than working with gelatos, gesso and modelling paste.  Such was the things our make and take were made of recently at a Scrapshotz crop.

We made this wicked card!  I love the colors and that paste and stencil just made some awesome texture on this card.  I thought those pink butterflies cut out with the sizzix just perfectly made this card.



The gelatos were a lot of fun to play with and such fun bold colors.  I may have to get me some!

In the mean time, make sure you stop by the blog today and join in this week’s TEXTURE challenge.  The DT has got some great inspiration for you this week.



Me? Published?

If you are a fan of Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine, you may have noticed a little sumpin sumpin on page 38 of the current issue.  It would look something like this!



Yep! That’s my card.  I am very excited to announce that Jackie and the wonderful ladies at CS have published one of my cards.  This month’s magazine is chalk full (Like every other month actually) of such wonderful Canadian talent of which I am so proud to be a part of.  Make sure you pick up a copy for yourself and see.

Tied Up

Our new challenge at Use It Tuesday is about dads!  We hope you all enjoyed Father’s day yesterday and we would like to see how you celebrate your dads.  Show us the Father’s day cards, the layouts about your dad, a memory box, whatever you create.

This is the card that I created for my father in law.





I hope you will play along with us this week.
