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 Circle Framelit Rainbow Card #1

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!

Stampin Up Sale-A-Bration Banner Blast Card

Stampin Up Petite Petals in my pocket

A family friend sent me this denim pocket stamp to cheer me up. I thought it would pair perfectly with Stampin Up’s new Petite Petals stamp & punch set. I also used the teeny tiny flower punch and the stamp from the Sale-A-Bration set. The banner and sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.

Here is the card I made with it & sent her to say thank you:

Stampin Up: Speech Bubble Dies & Retro Fresh Washi

Hiya Stampers,

Just a quick post today to share a card I made for Eric’s Grandmother who spoiled us with cake & presents on our most recent visit.  I love spending time with family  ❤

They have a budgie bird named Pom Pom, so I wanted to incorporate a bird in the card somehow… He is bright colors so I wanted to make sure the card reflected that as well.

Here is what I came up with:

Stampin Up  retro fresh washi tape Merci / Thank You card by Montreal Demonstrator Wendie Bee

Stampin Up retro fresh washi tape Merci / Thank You card by Montreal Demonstrator Wendie Bee

Stampin Up’s retro fresh washi tape made this card ridiculously easy & quick to make on the fly (last minute).  The only cutting of paper was the card base and first layer… the tape I just pulled off a piece and layered each design onto the card.  I used markers to clor the toucan bird, and fussy cut him out and adhering him using dimensionals

Here’s a really neat trick:  Here is how I created a layered effect for the speech bubble :

  1. Die cut bottom layer of speech bubble in solid colored card stock.
  2. Using the same die, I placed it on white card stock then with a pencil, traced the shaoe on the INSIDE of the die.
  3. With the “Remerciements” stamp set, I used the small ‘merci’ stamp, inked in tangerine tango, coastal cabana, soft suede & so saffron
  4. Finally, I fussy cut along my pencil lines and popped up the cut out piece using dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by. And don’t forget – your comments are always welcome and appreciated!!

Stampin Up Watercolor Technique

It’s a balmy -1 in Montreal today – I’m sure people were tempted to go out in shorts!! It’s been so cold here that -1 seems like spring weather 😛

I have been really loving the new trend of water color that has been making a strong come back in the crafting community.  Stampin Up has a beautiful new collection of watercolor inspired DSP (“designer series paper”), which inspired me to make this card, which will be featured as a project at my next workshop

Masculine Valentine’s Day Card Workshop Reveal

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!! Yay!  I just moved to Montreal on October, and everyone tells me that this is an unusually cold winter.  Like that makes me feel much better – it was TWENTY degree difference from back home (Vancouver) to here last week.  o_O

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.
