Snow Day

For those of you that know me personally, you'll know that I love snowmen.  So I was super excited to see the new build-your-own snowman set, Snow Day.  I'm also in love with the Winter Frost Specialty DSP found in the holiday catalog.  

The card here was created using both Snow Day and Winter Frost DSP.  How could you not love it?

Mosaic Punch Art


I love the new Mosaic punch from the 2013-14 Catalog.  It co-ordinates perfectly with the Mosaic Madness stamp set and Modern Mosaic embossing folder and the Quatrefancy Specialty DSP.  That's a lot of co-ordination!

BUT, did you know you can use it to create other beautiful embellishments for your projects?

Check out this beautiful Christmas card made by Karen Marcotte.  She used the punch to create the focal point, a large poinsettia.  Do you see it?  Each petal is punched and gently curled then placed with care.  The card features the new Chevron Ribbon and stamp set, Seasonal Sayings.

To learn more about the Mosaic Punch or any of the products seen here, send me and email or place an order online.

To book a punch art party to learn about the other wonderful projects you can make using punches, contact me.

Flowers & Grunge

If you saw my earlier post about the new set Gorgeous Grunge, you'll recognize some of the images on this fantastic card.  This was one of our make & take projects from our Demonstrator meeting on the weekend.  I love the combination of floral and grunge.  The large flowers are from the Regarding Dahlias set, and the butterfly is from the Best of Butterflies set.  You'll find the greeting in Lots of Thanks.

I love the feel of this card, how we combine soft and sweet with a certain roughness.  Just think of all the possibilities when you combine Gorgeous Grunge with other stamp sets you may already own!  To order any of the products found here, send me an email or shop online 24/7!

Of course, to see these products in action, book your in home party today.

Gorgeous Grunge


One of my favourite things about being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator is that I don't have to be creative.  Yes, I do come up with some beautiful projects on my own; but many times I CASE (copy and share everything) my ideas.
This past weekend I attended a demonstrator meeting where I got to chat with other demos about the business side of our Stampin' Up! hobby.  During the meeting we had a swap and I brought home 44 beautiful card designs to share.  

One if my favourites features the new stamp set Gorgeous Grunge.  
Unfortunately, the talented demonstrator who made this card forgot to put her information on it, so I can't give her credit where credit is due.

To order Gorgeous Grunge or any of the other products seen here, email me or order 24/7 from my online store.
