Just another day in my life

New Challenges!

Hey there!  I know I’ve been boring the last little bit…It’s crazy how much I miss my scrapping but the reno’s take precedence.  However, the world keeps moving and so do our challenges.

Red Carpet Studio has our Elf challenge going on right now….I love this movie!!  elf-movie-poster-2003-1020190734

The challenge is to create a project inspired by the holiday season!  Now a bit of a change here, you have the entire month to enter this challenge up to 5x!  The DT are taking a little bit of time off and coming back in the new year with some new challenges, new sponsors and some new DT Divas! Very exciting stuff.  Please stop by and play along with us and check out what the rest of the DT has already created to inspire you.

After stopping by there, head over to Use Your Stuff and join in on our Red and Green Challenge as well!  Create a project that has red and green in doubt you are still working on holiday projects and this challenge would be perfect for you to enter.   The DT has some lovely projects for you to enjoy!

Just an update

Hey everyone! It’s been a bit crazy here in my house.  We are doing basement reno’s right now, which includes my scrap space so I may not have a project for you for a few weeks.  I do want to make you aware though that Use Your Stuff has their new challenge up this week which is Chevrons!

Red Carpet Studio is going to have a new challenge next week and a new DT announcement mid month!

I am having a bit of withdrawl, not being in my scrap space, but my husband assures me that when it is done, it will be better than ever….so cannot wait!!!

The Cake.

Been to the Red Carpet Studio blog yet?  You might get hungry if you do!  Our challenge this week is Food!  We are basing our theme this go round on the movie Julie & Julia!

julie and julia

I did a wedding layout this week.  This was our wedding cake.  I had originally wanted it to be blue & green, our colors but Neil disagreed.  So, we went with an all white cake and decorated the table instead.  It turned out great and the cake was delish!!!!20141115_1604031

I hope you will join our challenge this week as we have a prize sponsored by Jack Bear Stamps which is pretty darn cool!


Can’t wait to see what you create!


Winter Fun

Monday morning and we have a bunch of snow.  Winter has arrived.  **sigh** No doubt to last another 9 months here in Calgary.  In honor of winter and snow, our theme at Use Your Stuff this week is well SNOW!  The DT has created some great projects and here is a Christmas Card I created with some stash items I’ve had for awhile now.


I hope you like it and do play along with us this week.  We love to see what you create!


Oh Baby

Hey Everyone! I’m late in posting this challenge today.  Sorry about that.  Our new one is up at Red Carpet Studio and..WE HAVE A PRIZE AS WELL!!!

Our challenge is based on the movie MARLEY AND ME.  We would like to see you create a project that features an animal!


Here is a baby card I created.  I love how this turned out.


The image is Stampin Up and the DP is from my stash.  I really like the colors for this and the fact that this card can be used if one does not know if the baby is a boy or girl :).  I hope you will stop by the blog and play along with us for a chance to win a really great prize pack.

A simple card.  That is what I have for you today to go with our new challenge at Use Your Stuff this week.  Our theme is ‘DOILY’.  Incorporate a doily somewhere on your project, it can be an actual doily, a stencil, a stamp etc.  I have only 1 doily stamp and I really do love it because it is so versatile.  I needed to make a simple nondescript card that I could write a quick note in and mail off to a friend, so it also cannot be too bulky to mail.

I decided to do a bit of resist embossing.  Simple but some nice texture.  I stamped the image in my Versamark and then went over it with white embossing powder.  I added some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in peeled paint and shabby shutters.  To finish it off I just added some ribbon and a couple of flowers.

We hope you will play along with us this week on the blog and we can’t wait to see what you come up with.

The Pound Puppies.

I can’t even remember the last time I did a layout with the dogs.  I think it is when I first started scrapping, the early years.  So I had to re-purpose the photos from an early layout that I just didn’t like to make for this one.

Our challenge at Use Your Stuff this week is Pets/Animals.  It’s ok if you don’t have any pets, you can create a project that is pet related.

Take a look at my pound puppies…Tonka (the bijon) is 14 and Pickles (the pug) is 12 but you would never guess it.  These two, who are the best of friends are as frisky as you can imagine.  They run around the house all the time and are just as loud as they ever were. :)

Join us this week on the blog and play along in our challenge.

All of my DP is from my stash (oh I had to dig for my animal themed paper let me tell you!) but I based the layout on Sue Sykes’ October sketchy challenge over at Canadian Scrapbooker! 

Here is the sketch!




And then my layout!



Thanks for stopping by!


My Pumpkin

Sunday!  The start of another week.  We’ve been busy over here, as I am getting ready for my craft fairs coming up next month.

Have you stopped by the Red Carpet Studio blog today?  You will see we have a new challenge up!

Our theme this week is drawing inspiration from The Haunted Mansion!

We are wanting to see your Hallowe’en themed projects this week.  Here is a layout I created about my little munchkin in his very first Hallowe’en costume.  I loved this costume.  I thought it was just adorable on him.




Most of this was created from just bits and bobs out of my stash.  I don’t make a lot of Hallowe’en projects so I tend to have a lot of left over paper.  The jack o’lanterns are just some dollar store stickers I had and the pumpkin in the corner is made from my cuttlebug die.  Some thickers finish it off.  Thanks so much for stopping by and don’t forget to drop by the blog.

The colors of Autumn

Ahh fall is here.  The leaves have started to drop, the colors are changing and the air is getting cooler.  Our new challenge at Use Your Stuff this week celebrates all that is fall!  The sounds, the sights, the us what fall means to you.

I love making autumn cards because I love all those rich hues.



I just wanted to make a simple autumn card for a swap-bot swap that I am doing.  More layers than bulk and I love using my favorite pumpkin stamp!  I hope that you will play along with us this week.  Can’t wait to see what you create!
