Window Shopping ... Thanks Friend!

So sorry I've been MIA... a couple of months ago my Dad became ill and was hospitalized and has since come to live with  me. Needless to say my craft time has diminished. I have a couple of cards to share with you today, I hope you are inspired.

My focus for these two cards was the {Window Shopping} stamp set... which has been carried over to the annual catalogue - yay! This set coordinates with the Window Box Thinlits. I chose to use the floral image, which is a square stamp. I stamped four using two of my favourite colours Mint Macaron and Emerald Envy. I altered the sentiment to have my greeting say from Thanks for being a great friend to Thanks for being great.


Next, I kept it very similar but again editing the sentiment to just say Thanks Friend. Instead of designer series paper in the background I opted for an embossed panel using the {Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder}. My colour combo is Pool Party and Bermuda Bay..love!


This is my Dad's dog Lily. She has now joined our fur-family. Isn't she adorable? This picture reminded me about how sad I am that I still have my pre-order goodies in the packaging... Hopefully soon I will have some time to break them in!

Lift Me UP + Cupcakes & Carousels

Hello stampers! 

Stampin' Up! released their 2017 retiring product lists today. I'll admit that I am really sad to see so many of my favourites leaving. I think I will miss Mint Macaron inks... cardstock... well everything. 

One of the items that I absolutely love is the [Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack]. This paper is one of my all-time favouites, I love every design and the colours are perfectly suited to each other. I have a card to share today that I created with this stunning paper stack. 


The background really pops with these designs. I added a diecut hot air balloon and a few clouds. I hope you like my card.

Thank you from all of us BEETLES & BUGS

Hello stampers!

I have another fun card featuring {Beetles & Bugs} from the Occasions Catalogue. I know bugs are supposed to be icky and gross, but these bugs are super cute to me and they don't bite, sting, crawl or any other things that creepy crawlies do. I made a diagonal striped pattern with these little guys and added a bit of colour with the two-step stamping images, which fit perfectly and look just like I coloured them in with markers! 


And the perfect sentiment came from the {One Big Meaning} set from the Annual catalogue (2016-17). It seemed to fit with all the bugs on the card! I hope you like it, cheers!!

Jeffrey is a "Special Reason" for an "Avant Garden" layout

Hello stampers! 

So sorry it's been so long, I hope you've all been well. I have had some upsetting family news, and that's why I've been absent for so long. Believe it or not... this is the first time since March 1 that I even opened my computer. I was surprised that it's been so long. A couple of months ago I was asked to make some display samples for a Stampin' Up! event and I decided one of them be a page layout. 


I take a LOT, seriously... of pictures of my fur-babies, especially my Jeffrey. Rescuing him and his 4 siblings and Momma was one of the best decisions I have made. I can't believe they will be 5 in a few months. Time sure does fly. I am totally in love with the {Special Reason} bundle and had a bunch of the flowers stamped and die cut, I also had a few of the images from {Avant Garden SAB}. My boy sure does take a good photo, don't you think? 


It's hard to believe that he was once a tiny kitten weighing 3.4 lbs. at the time I caught him. He was so tiny - really tiny. He's not tiny anymore. He's a whopping 26 lbs. now and is still my baby, just a big one now. Look at that face, so squishy!


I was going to add his name to this, but then decided to add the stamp from {Avant Garden} that says "Thanks for being you". I then added a partial sentiment from the {Tasty Trucks SAB} set saying "You're the sweetest". He really is. He wakes me up every morning by sitting above my head purring up a storm. Sometimes he even grooms my hair... i.e. licking  my hair. It's weird I know... but I love that he's different and unique! Love him so much!!!

I hope you like my layout, if you have any fur-babies give them a hug.


Thanks for checking me out... meow, Jeffrey
