The Big Shot is an amazing, versatile, easy-to-use die cutting and embossing tool – I use mine for almost every project I do!! Whether you are die cutting, or embossing to give your project some texture my Big Shot has been my most used purchase of any crafting tool I have ever gotten.
If you’re anything like me, you absolutely love when BIG opportunities come your way. And because we all know the Big Shot is a big deal, here is an offer you you can’t refuse: with every purchase of a Big Shot in August, you will receive 1 of 5 free stamp set AND the matching dies (framelits) of your choice from these selected bundles!
Here is a great video on how to use the Big Shot, and all the amazing things you can do with it!
Here are some great examples of projects made with the Big Shot that I have made recently:
I can ship ANYWHERE in Canada, including Quebec ! Shipped by UPS you will be able to track your order and know exactly when your box of goodies will be arriving!
I am so excited, and a little overwhelmed to have the opportunity to attend Stampin Up’s 2014 convention: Inspire. Create Share!
As part of a new recruit incentive, I was able to attend convention for FREE!! The attendance was waived for new recruits so I only need cover my expenses.
One of the big parts of convention is the swapping. There are many organized swaps, in addition to the ‘general swaps’. Essentially guests of the convention go around networking with other demonstrators, and instead of exchanging business cards, we will exchange GREETING cards! How cool is that?! The purpose is to get ideas for workshops and share your ideas with others. Initially I didn’t plan on making general swap cards as I was on a very limited budget – but the more I thought about it I changed my mind. This is my first convention, and in the chance that I do not have the opportunity again to go back I wanted to make sure I make the most of this experience.
Here are my cards that I made for the organized swap:
Here are the two cards that I made for the general swaps – these are both past projects that I made in workshops:
The second card is also a previous workshop project:

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.

Phewf! It’s been a little while since I have been able to post an update for you all! A lot has changed for me, and I am now back in British Columbia in New Westminster. Now that my craft room is all unpacked I am finally able to hold card making workshops again. (YAY!)
The first class I did was a huge success so I hope that some of you will be able to join me for my second workshop in New Westminster. The theme for this card making workshop is “Birthday Bash”. Birthdays happen all throughout the year – so be prepared for them! This workshop will feature 3 cards: one feminine, one masculine and one junior (child / tween) card.
All the materials you need will be provided to make each card, all you will need to bring with you is basic supplies like Tombow or snail, pop dots / dimensionals and fine pointed scissors along with any other tools you find useful when crafting! I provide the project kits, complete with all materials and pre-cut card stock; all you need to do is learn the fun techniques and assemble the projects!
Here is the masculine birthday card design we will be making in this workshop:

For my first video, I chose to do a tutorial on how to make the rainbow card I posted recently (click to find the list of supplies you will need to make this card)
Spring is a little late this year, so I thought I would create my own happy spring right in my craft room!
This rainbow card is SUPER easy to make, and took about half an hour start to finish. AND it made TWO rainbows, so I can make two cards at a time!
This is the first one I made – be sure to check back as I will be posting my second card, along with a tutorial on how to create them!
