Stampin Up Coffee Cafe ~ Quick & Easy 5 Minute Card

It’s been a while, so I wanted to make sure I started the New Year off right by getting more of my creations posted for you all!
One big change you will notice: I will always now be posting the measurements of all cardstock & pieces used on my cards! I know it’s super frustrating for me when I go to case a really cool card I found, only to not be able to recreate it  just so because my proportions or measurements are off.

So – if you like my work, and you want to recreate it, I will make it easy & fun to do so! All I ask is that you link to the original post or tag me from Facebook, Twitter or Instagram 🙂

Without further ado – here is a really cute, and easy card to whip up.  This card is great for a make & take event or if you need a card on the go.

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:

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:

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)

Mini Workshop Materpieces

Look what my girls made in the Mini Workshop I hosted on Monday!  We had a great time – I mean really, how much more perfect can girls night out be when it includes great company & crafting?!

Each workshop I host as a demonstrator, I always create a tutorial / handout for the participants to take home with them after the workshop so that they can recreate the cards again at home.  As a little bonus for all you stampers out there, I have included a link to download the PDF tutorials on how to make each card from that workshop!  Some of the other cards I have featured in other posts also have a PDF tutorial – if you are interested in one, please comment below or message me & I can email you a PDf copy.

This card is super cute, but the pinwheel sizzlits can be a serious problem to put together… that is if you don’t know the trick to assembling them!  Check out this video on the easy way to assemble these little guys with ease and no frustration:

The other WAY COOL technique I taught the group was the “fork bow”.  Who knew you could use a fork to produce consistent, easy to make bows!!  I found this YouTube tutorial on how to make easy ribbon bows:

The picture of this card doesn’t do this card justice! We used the champagne shimmer paint to add a beautiful hint of shimmer to the front of the card.

Crazy for Coloring!

Coloring.  Not just for kids anymore!  I just recently acquired a set of 48 Prismacolor markers.  These are very similar to Copic markers – they are alcohol based ink which allows for blending and non-streaking when filling in.


Thanks to the brilliant Darlene Devires and her tutorial post showing step-by-step instructions on how to color with copics markers (or Prismacolor in my case) I was able to color this Mouse stamp that I had got to make boyfriend a Valentine’s Day card with.

And here is my first colored image using alcohol markers:


Those penciled notes you see in the top left corner are my notes with each of the colors I used to create this image so I know for next time what the best colors are to use.
