Pandamonium: Sending Smiles

Heya Stampers!!

Just wanted to share this adorable card I made with Mama Elephant’s Pandamonium and Up Up & Away set.  This card was made for a friend who lives on the opposite coast from me – so the sentiment was perfect, and who can resist those pandas?!

Scrapbooking with Pets?!

I found this on the internet recently and I thought it was the funniest thing ever! I posted it on my Facebook Page and it got lots of good feedback so I thought I would share it here too!

Stampin Up’s Calling All [Super] Hero’s Mini Journals

As soon as I saw the Calling All Hero’s photopolymer set by Stampin Up I knew i had to have it!!  I had so many ideas on what to do with it – and i loved that it worked for both boys AND girls.

My friend Eric and his two best friends make an annual pilgrimage to the Fan Expo (Comic Con) in Toronto every year.  It’s HUGE and there is SO much to see.  So I thought it would be cool to make them a memento that would be as practical as it was cool. (At least I thought so anyway :P)

And the mini craft journals project began.  I started planning weeks before and used scraps of computer paper to test layouts – I think I tried about 6 different designs before I came up with this one.  I just love that this set is  photopolymer!! Being completely transparent I was able to position the letters perfectly without having to use a position-er or make costly mistakes!

Here is the finished journals – I made one for each of them and personalized it with their names.  I included pop rocks and candy with them in the package when I sent them too.

Here’s the best part – you can make these too!! It was easy once I knew the layout – just needed one stamp set and two basic ink colors!

Inspire Create Share: Stampin Up Convention 2014 Card Swap

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:

Vancouver Area Card Making Workshop: Birthday Bash!

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:
