I have had this Sizzix cupcake for for a while now, and I had a stroke of inspiration when I saw Doodlebug’s Hey Cupcake enamel sprinkles in my local craft supply store. I knew I had to pull out this die set to make a card with these cute sprinkles!
The construction of the cupcake was super easy – I used 110lb card-stock for the base, cut just above the score line to allow a top folding card base.
Using foam tape under the cupcake base and ‘icing’ layers gave it just the right pop of dimension; and a C00 Coptic marker to lightly add in some shading to create more dimension in the icing.
A white gel pen & crystal effects added a perfect gloss on the cherry – glued flat to the icing layer.
Summer is in full swing, and Stampin Up’s Sweet As A Peach collection is the perfect suite to kick it off!
Using the Sweet As A Peachg 12×12 Designer Series Paper (DSP) along with the photopolymer stamps and coordinating dies, I used sponge daubers to ink the peaches (stamped in pale papaya) and inked for dimension with calypso coral. Pear pizazz was used to stamp the leaves, and the lightest yellow I had to create the flowers.
Photoplay Paper does it again with this super fun & whimsical Whisker paper collection!! I have a girlfriend who loves cats just as much as I do, so I knew I had to make her this card for her!!
I created a few super basic layers, then matted the trimmed sentiment panel with Tattered Lace torn edge rectangles dies. This card took literally less than 15 minutes, but it sure made her day when it arrived in the post. 🙂
Everyone who knows me, knows my absolute favorite stamp company is, and has been for many many years: Lawn Fawn. When I saw that Lawn Fawn had created a new challenge blog, called Lawn Fawnatics, I knew I had to play along! Their first challenge theme is: Birthday. Since it coincided with their 7 year birthday it was a perfect match.
Here is my card I made – all supplies I used can be found at the end of post.

When I first started Karma Cards, I wanted to try and make every effort to try and do as much as I could. The last year I wasn’t able to to as much charitable work as I hoped to, so this year I made it a resolution to schedule more charity card workshops.
I had done a Karma Cards class over the Christmas holidays, and it was a great success! My group donated almost 20 pounds of food for the Extended Hands food bank, and I wanted to make sure that I kept that initiative going after the holidays. I hosted another Karma Cards card making charity workshop this past weekend, and was able to collect both food and monetary donation for the Extended Hands Food Bank; a non-profit food bank in my area. For my workshops, I donate all the materials and time to prepare, and I ask that attendee’s bring, in lieu of a class fee, either 6 non-perishable food items (like high protein items, baby formula or diapers) or a cash donation, 100% of which goes to the food bank, of $12 per person. We all made 3 cards each, and I was able to collect a sizable box of food for donation to the food bank.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HELP OUT TOO, BUT WERE UNABLE TO MAKE IT TO THE WORKSHOP, YOU CAN DONATE SAFELY & SECURELY THROUGH PAYPAL DIRECTLY TO THE FOOD BANK. ALL OF YOUR DONATIONS MATTER, REGARDLESS OF THE SIZE, AND ARE VERY APPRECIATED! CLICK ON THE BUTTON TO DONATE NOW
Of all the alcohol markers that Stampin Up has, Cherry Cobbler is my favorite color. It is such a rich yet vibrant color, almost regal like velvet 😉
I am hosting an Introduction to Alcohol Marker Coloring class this week, and here is the card the group will be making in the workshop. Each class participant will get a FREE pack of the Cherry Cobbler marker trio as part of their class fee too!
Here is the card:

Hiya Stampers! This new Stampin Up Occasions catalog is seriously amazing. Every single stamp set I ordered I have been able to make so many great projects with.
Here is one of my most recent project 7 accompanying video tutorial: a large Celebrate balloons card. It’s long and tall, but fits perfectly into a standard business size #10 envelope and can be sent in the mail for a regular postage stamp (no additional cost)!

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!
Here is a list of what I used – and don’t forget you can shop online 2-4-7 by clicking on any of the links.

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:
