Graphic 45 Guilded Lily Mixed Media Journal Scrapbook Album

I recently attended the CHA Paper + Arts expo in Shaumberg Illinois just over a week ago as part of the Scrapbooks By Design team. It was a great experience and I got to see a LOT of sneak peaks from brands like Sizzix, Penny Black and Echo Park!

At the expo I had an opportunity to attend a workshop hosted by the Graphic 45 team to create a mixed media album using the Guilded Lily collection.  The workshop kit included everything I needed to make the gorgeous album, and it was surprisingly easy to make too! As my reader know, I tend to lean towards the ‘cuter’ side of things, with Lawn Fawn etc, so I didn’t think I was capable of making something so lovely.  The Graphic 45 design team created a beautiful project, which I created as a Scrapbooks By Design design team member.

Here is a peek at the album cover – if you would like to see the complete project and all pages, click here:  Guilded Lily Album Full Post

Craft workshop & classes in New Westminster & Vancouver area

 

Are you looking for something different?  If you have ever thought about trying a new craft or hobby then I have a workshop for that.  Are you looking to improve the skills you already have? I have a workshop for that too! Join me and some friends, or meet new people

New Westminster & Fraser Valley Stampers & Papercrafters is for anyone who is creative and looking for inspiration and ideas to create handmade greeting cards & papercrafts (like party favors, post it note holders and home decor like wreaths & banners).
I especially enjoy helping people who say “I could never do that, I’m not creative.” to discover that they CAN make cards that look good. I have a “there are no mistakes in stamping” attitude that always makes for a fun environment for learning card making and papercrafting.
This group has many events to choose from hosted on various week night, and weekends, I teach card making workshops once or twice every month, and also host a “Crop & Swap” night twice a month along with other ad hoc DIY workshops like making wreaths, stamping on candles, gift boxes and other great gift ideas.

All workshops and crafting classes are currently held at my apartment in the heart of Uptown New Westminster. I am located only a few blocks away from Columbia sky train station, and there is a bus stop directly out front of the building that runs to New Westminster sky train station often.

Here is a quick overview of a few of the workshops I host.

Crop & Swap Social: The “Crop & Swap” is a night of socializing and crafting. Bring your own project to work on and we can get together and just be social while doing what we love: crafting!!

Card Making Workshops: At each workshop I will teach various stamping & crafting techniques including: ‘wet’ & ‘dry’ embossing, die cutting using the Big Shot, paper piercing, triple layering, while showing you tips & tricks along the way! Each workshop fee will include: All materials needed to create the project AND detailed instructions that you can take home to re-create the cards again, and of course, lots of fun!
Unleash your creativity and learn more about card making & meet new friends!

Don’t want to travel? No problem, I can come to you! Just get a group together of people of 4 or more and I will come to your place and host the workshop.  The best part of being the hostess:  you can earn FREE product for yourself! Call me to find out how & to book your party now.

Here is a look at some of the cards I have made at workshops in the past – be sure to if you are in Vancouver, New Westminster or surrounding register for a workshop

Stampin Up’s Good As Gold Card Kit Avon Lip Balm box

When I saw this project by Sam McDonald of Pootles UK, I just HAD to make it!! I was smitten with the Sale-A-Bration Good As Gold card kit as soon as I saw it, and when I saw Sam’s brilliant little box, I knew I had to make one too!

Here is the project I made using the Good As Gold card kit:

Stampin Up Sale-A-Bration Good As Gold Gift Box - Wendie Bee Montreal

I loved the box so much, that I decided to make another one using Stampin Up card stock and the Sale-A-Bration DSP (designer series paper). I love Avon lip balm – it’s a great price, and there is always so many different designs and flavors available, I thought they would be perfect for this project  Here is my modified project using Sam’s tutorial:

Hiya Stampers!! It is still FREEZING in Montreal.  Like gross cold.  Which, as always, gives me a great excuse to not have to go out, which means I can play in my craft room!!

So, here is a sneak peek at one of the cards that we will be making in the Valentine’s Day workshop this month using the new “Just Sayin” stamp and die bundle that Stampin Up just released in their new Occasions catalog last week.

Stampin Up Valentine’s card Montreal style

Well, it’s -19 in Montreal today.  Yep. MINUS NINETEEN!!  Which gives me the perfect reason to not go out, and stay in my craft room all day!!!

    Using all the latest items from the NEW Occasions catalog this workshop will feature 4 projects: 3 cards and one 3D project (like a post it note holder, or gift box, etc).  But that’s not all!! To celebrate the release of the new catalog, each attendee will receive a free copy of the new catalog and a FREE GOODIE BAG just for attending!

  2. Valentine’s Day card making workshop:  Wednesday, January 15th, 2014 in Montreal Quebec (“NDG”) $15 per person

Here is one of the cards that we will be making for the Valentine’s Day workshop:

Montreal Card Workshop: Valentines' Day project #1

Montreal Card Workshop: Valentines’ Day project #1

We will be using the limited edition “Follow My Heart” stamp set for this workshop – there is something romantic about the Eiffel Tower is there?!  *sigh*  And being in the French province of Canada, I thought this stamp set was very apropos this year.

Be sure to register for this card making workshop if you are in the Montreal area – the class fee is only $15. 

 

Until next time stampers!!

 

 

 

Card Making Workshop: For The Birds

Using the owl punch from Stampin Up, this workshop will feature three different cards using one punch. I love this punch – it is so versatile that it was the very first item I bought when I started out!

Here is one of the three card projects we will be making.  I made this card a while ago and the blog post I wrote about it has gotten so much positive feedback that I thought I would include it as a workshop project!  There will also be a Birthday themed card and a wedding themed card using the owl punch as well.  Curious to know how you can use the owl punch to make these?  Register to the workshop and find out  😛

This class is suitable for all levels of crafting experience. All instruction will be done in English, however some stamps and catalogs may be available in French.

My workshops are located in the heart of Montreal in the Notre Dame De Graces (NDG) area.  I am easily accessible by transit and driving (just off the 20 or 15 / Decarie)
