Happy Christmas Words

One more for awhile!  A clean and simple card but also inspired by Heartfelt Creations!  If you would like any details on this one, send an email to me!

White Christmas Card

Okay it is snowing outside and I have another Christmas card for you.  I can't think of what else I should be doing in this miserable, snowy weather.  Another card inspired by Heartfelt Creations!

I don't think I have done an all white card before and it is kind of challenging.  I did use some gold embossing powder and gold ribbon.  I like how it all came together! 

As always, I love reading any comments or suggestions!

Photos look really blue but I can't retake the photos as this card is already sold.  It really was all white with just the gold embossing powder!!  LOL!

Angel Wings

I made these Christmas cards awhile ago and realized that I never posted them.  Here is one that was inspired by Heartfelt Creations.  Heartfelt Creations has some amazing products and a fabulous blog of ideas so check them out.

Here is my version!

If you would like any info on this just send me an email and I will do my best!  I would love to read your comments on what you think of this one!

Over the Top

Hi!  I'm back with a card for you to see.  A co-worker asked me to make a birthday card that was "over the top".  It is interesting how life seems to happen!   About the time that she asked me I discovered a blog called and this fabulous crafter inspired me to try "over the top"!

I contacted Jennifer about using the Stampendous Frantage and she was very helpful.  I also asked if she minded me posting this as it is so similar to her "style" and she has told me to go ahead. 

I would love to hear what you think of this.  Warning!!  Photo heavy!!  Thank you so much for your help Jennifer!  I love how this came out and I hope that my co-worker and the recipient like it!

I was very fortunate to take a class with the beautiful and talented Emma Lou of Heartfelt Creations at Scrap and Bean.   Check out the Hearfelt web site and all of the ideas in the gallery and the videos.  There is a wealth of information there. 

Scrap and Bean is carrying tons of the Hearfelt products if you are looking for anything in the Edmonton area.

Papers are - Bazzill for the red and the cream one, I'm not sure; the patterned paper on the front is My Mind's Eye.
Dies - Heartfelt Creations Ornamental Add On; Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornaments and Labels 4 and the tiny little one on the front by the phrase is Memory Box Precious Ornaments.
The glitter on the ornaments is from Glitter Ritz in Apple Red and Sahara.
Stamps are Stampin' Up; Impression Obsession for the phrase on the front and the vertical "Christmas" is from Art Impressions.
Inks are Clearsnap pigment ink in Merlot and Bronze and I used Ranger clear embossing powder.

Hi everyone!  I haven't disappeared completely.  Summer is just so busy and the craft room gets kind of neglected.  Summer time in Edmonton is short and my better-half-guy and I golf whenever we can and try to enjoy the nice weather while it lasts.

I have done some Copic coloring and some craft classes throughout the past few months though just not any finished projects to show.

I have a list of stuff that I want to make and color so keep watching and check back.

Dew Drops

Hi!  I am back with a new creation for a friends birthday that is coming up.  I have used a Paper Shelter digital image and as my title says, the image is called "Dew Drops".  It has been a very long and very cold winter and this just made me wish for some springtime.  My friends birthday is April 30, so hopefully it will be feeling like spring by then. 

Here's a closeup of the coloring.

I have Copics in the following colors:
Skin - E 11, 21, 00, 000
Hair - E 35: Y 23; YR 23
Leaves - YG 45, 17, 13, 11
Top and sock stripes - RV 21, 23, 25
Skirt and sock stripes were BV but I didn't write them down!!  OOPS!
The dew drops and wings - BG 11, 70 - they look almost white in the photos but they actually have green in them in real life
Background - BG 0000; B 0000, B 00
I also painted the wings with Smooch Glitz

The papers are Basic Grey, Bazzill and Tim Holtz; flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, lace was from stash; die cuts are Spellbinders and Marianne Designs; the interior phrases are from Stampin Up and they were heat embossed.

A couple of the inside for you.

File Folder Album

I have finished a file folder mini album for a Christmas gift!  Yes, for Christmas 2013!  This was a class taught at Urban Scrapbook by a wonderful instructor, Nicole!  I really had a lot of fun making this project and although it was time consuming, I am really happy with how it turned out.

There are lots and lots of pockets and fold out sections for photos or tickets or journaling.

This is photo heavy here!

This was made using three file folders.  The papers are from Kaiser Craft - The Secret Admirer line; die cuts are from Tim Holtz and Spellbinders.  I inked the title panel with Colorbox pigment inks.

I am entering this one into the Fussy and Fancy challenge where the topic is "Spring Days"!  I think the colors and patterns look like spring!  Hope you think so too!

I would love to hear what you think of this!  If you would like any other details, just send an email and I will try to answer!!

House Reorganizing

I mentioned in that first post that I am reorganizing three rooms in my house.  The first room was putting in floor to ceililng bookshelves and was a major time consumer.  I have many, many, many books and this took a long time to pack them up, get the bookcases from Ikea and get them up and then organize all those books.  I will take pics of that room later.

I am now working on the third room (second was the sewing room and done)!  I am probably crazy to show what this looks like and embarassed but here goes!

I started pulling stuff out of the craft room to figure out plan how I was going to organize it.  That pile is only part of what I have to sort out.

This is my desk (working table) right now!  I am working on a Christams gift!  Yes, for 2013!  I hope to have that finished later today and maybe get it posted.  I took a break from the "work" just to make something!!  Once the gift is ready, I will be back at the sorting and organizng!!

Would love to hear how you sort and organize and clean up your craft spaces and any comments on the post are welcome and appreciated.

Where In the World Have I Been?

Has anyone missed me?  I haven't been doing a lot of stamping for many reasons (excuses), and too many to list.  I have been rearranging THREE rooms in my house and it takes up huge chunks of time.

This post is to show you a little bit of what is happening.

I moved my sewing room from the basement to a bedroom upstairs as the "craft" room downstairs was just overflowing and the room upstairs wasn't being utilized.  SO, the move!  Huge project but that one is done.

I made this Jenny Haskins inspired pillow as the first sewing project in the NEW room.

The heart in the center is machine embroidered and has a ribbon weaving in the middle of it and the flowers and butterfly was also machine embroidered.  I like how this came out!  Here is one close up of the center for you.
I would love to hear what you think of this and appreciate all comments!!
