The 3 Amigos

Have you stopped by the Red Carpet Studio blog yet?  Our new challenge for this week is up.  Inspired by a movie I just love!  I am just a big fan of the remake as I am of the original.  So fun!



Our challenge is to use ribbon in some way for this one….back in the 60s they were using ribbons and bows all the time in their hair, on their clothes…

For this week’s challenge I did a layout of Riley and his two best friends Gabe and Timmy who are brothers.  They all go to preschool together, they live 5 mins away, Gabe and Riley are on the same soccer team…you get the picture.



I just love how cute these guys look together!  I hope you will play along with us this week.  Can’t wait to see what you create!

Your Funny Face!

Ahh Monday!  Back to the grind after a wonderful weekend away at our farm.  Our new DT member Anne has a new challenge for you this week at Use Your Stuff.  So easy, you have to play along.  All you have to do is use some patterned paper!  You can do that right!

Here’s a layout of Riley using some old CTMH paper that I’ve had since I think I started scrappin’ years ago.  I think it is called Superstar.  I love the boy colors!



I had a few scraps of some sheets from a previous project and they were perfect to highlight as banners on the main page.  I hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to play along with us on the blog.  We would love to see what you create!

Viva Las Vegas

Ahhh another new challenge at Red Carpet Studio this week.  A fun one to be sure.  We are basing it on a classic!  National Lampoon’s Vacation!  Ahh the Griswold’s on vacation….




The challenge is to create a project with a vacation/trip theme!  For me, my vacation hotspot (besides Cuba) is VEGAS BABY!

Every two years my BFF and I head down to Vegas just the two of us.  We relax, have some much needed ME time and just be silly and crazy (but not tooo crazy).

This picture was from our trip last year!

Follow Your Bliss

Our challenge at Use Your Stuff this week is all about the rule of 3….whatever you put into your project, we want you to do in groups of three, 2 brads, 3 DP’s 3 pieces of cardstock etc….

For this project I have a cute little bookmark for you!  For my rule of 3, I used 3 stamps, & 3 embellishments.  I love how this turned out and I hope you do to.  Please play along with us over on the blog this week. :)


Thank you for your Service

It’s the long weekend here in Canada.  Almost my entire house is sick.  Yuk!

Our new challenge is up at Red Carpet Studio this week.

The theme is to create a Memorial Day (for our US friends) project….perhaps it is something that you do over the long weekend, like picnics & fireworks, camping…is it the theme of brotherhood and family, or do you have a special someone that serves in the armed forces.  We want to see what you create.


As well, we have a wonderful sponsor, BUGABOO STAMPS!

As a Canadian,  I am given many rights and privileges that would not be possible without those that serve in our armed forces.  For that I extend my most humblest and sincerest thanks and admiration.  Without you I could not be a free me.  For my project this week, I have chose to honor those who serve.



Now of course I did it in Red and White ;)  The image is Bugaboo’s Kidlet Army which I think is just adorable.  I used my Taylored Expressions die for the white background.  The red star behind the image is a Spellbinders.  The Stars and sentiment are from Stampin Up.  I hope you enjoy the card and please come by the blog and play along for a chance to win.

Have a wonderful long weekend everyone!


In honor of Mother’s day, I created this generational photo of my family.  One of the few photos with my great-grandparents, I like to pay special care to how I scrap them.

It’s ribbon week over at Use Your Stuff and our challenge is to put ribbons or fibres on your projects.  Make sure you stop by the blog to check out the DT projects and to play along with us.  A super easy challenge this week and we hope to see you!


Thinking of You

Monday Monday……it’s snowing here in Calgary, just in case you were interested.  We’ve had over 200 days of winter.  That just sucks. :(  I’m dying for spring.


On a brighter note, it is time for our new challenge at Use Your Stuff.  This is a technique challenge–OMBRE…

I didn’t know what this was at first so I had to look it up.  Then I had to figure out how to do it, because it’s not something that I had tried before.  Then I got to thinking about the paint chips from Home Depot and how they are just like this! So I popped over and picked up a couple.  I made this card using some inspiration from Pinterest and a Stampin Up stamp that I just got!
