Oh My!

Wow, I cannot believe how fast time is flying by.  I have been very busy making Christmas cards for an order of 200.  That is a lot of cards.  I am designing and creating about 25 of each of 8 styles.  Currently, I am working on 151 -175 right now, then one more creation and whoola...done!  I am excited that I will stamp the back with my personal stamp and it will go out to 200 clients of my customer. 
I have also been busy creating and cutting out for the card workshop I plan to hold next month.  This will be to make 12 Christmas cards in an evening.  These I will post soon.  I still have to take pictures and upload them. 
The Thursday evening open crop is going well and we are creating many mini albums and gifts.  There seems to be more interest now that school is back in and fall is fast approaching. 
So, until I get back here again, happy scrappin....
Contact me if you would like to attend the open crop or just have a question at 250-763-6780 or and thanks for having a look.

New Layouts

This is an album I helped a customer create.  She didn`t have a lot of patterned paper, so I created some for her with background stamping on cardstock.  It looks amazing. 

This is a layout I have made for myself (no pictures yet) using background stamping and the bandana strip as shown by Theresa Black.  Sorry the background is almost the same as the centre of the layout, but if you look closely you can see where the layout is. 
Thanks for viewing my blog.  All comments are welcome and read with appreciation.

Long Time

Well, it has been awhile since I posted.  However the open house was a success and fun. If you missed it I am sorry, you missed a good time. 
I have been busy making Christmas cards.  Yes, Christmas cards, preparing for a fall workshop and after showing my examples, I have an order for a couple hundred for a business to send out to their customers....Yay, but lots of work, so have started to make them already! 
I purchased the 'Triple Play' National Stamping Month special from Close To My Heart and it is adorable! Three little 4" albums all ready to decorate, add pictures, fold and put together.  Well, one of my customers saw it before I had even opened it and she wanted it, but really didn't want to pay full price for it. 
I am excited for future orders and to 'let me show you how' with Close To My Heart products.  Call me at 250-763-6780 or email at if you would like to make a 4" mini album and I can show you how you how you too can get a Triple Play kit for just $5.00 until the end of September only....
Join us on Thursday evenings 6 - 9 p.m. for open crop nights, good company and to meet new friends... Contact me for details...
Happy Scrappin
