Canada Day 2019

With most of the 2020 Canada Day celebrations cancelled, I took the opportunity to scrapbook last year`s Canada Day parade photos.  Which means I am now caught up with Canada Day, in one album at least!
I won`t mention about the other 10 years of events and precious moments that I would still like to complete one day!

For this page I used paper and journal tags from Scrapbook Customs.  I love all their travel papers and customs printed items with the beautiful distress elements, and it is perfect for a young man with the whole world ahead of him.  I added maple leaves cut from a Tim Holtz die set and stamps from Photo Play`s O Canada stamp set.

  Yep.  All Caught Up!

See all our Scrapbook Customs products.  

Miss you guys.  Hopefully things will get back to near normal soon and we can organize get a crop organized, or somehow get together!

In Wine there is Truth

Reminisce Paper and Spellbinders Dies

Thought I would share a nice wine card today.  We may all need a bit of wine after this first week of re-opening.  It was a bit nerve racking for some, including myself.

For this card I used paper and stickers from the Reminisce Wine collection and Wine Charm dies from Spellbinders.  I don't usually use stickers on my cards as I find them too flat, so for this I popped them onto heavy cardstock before attaching them to the card.  Everything was distressed with Ground Espresso Distress Ink.  It is clean and simple.

Have a great weekend.

Three cards, one stamp

I am using a fun stamp here, from Brutus Monroe's Tea Time stamp set.   The cups were colored with various alcohol markers.  This stamp has so many possibilities.  I paired it with papers from BoBunny and Authentic and used some small tags and stamps to get some great sentiments.  

Here are close ups:

For this card I used background paper from Authentic Tidings collection (yes, Christmas paper), a tag from Echo Park Coffee collection, the heart is a stamp and die from Studio Light, and a bit of Maya Road twine.  

This colorful card is made up of a tag from BoBunny's Believe collection, backed onto cardstock from Spellbinders and Bazzill Basics.  This card is sure to put some cheer in somebody's day!

This last card is also created with BoBunny's Believe papers.  Love these colors!

Another day of cardmaking.  Hope it gives you some ideas!
Happy crafting!

Coffee Card with Alexandra Renke

Beautiful Alexandra Renke card

A few weeks back I created some coffee cards and will sharing with you over the next little while.  I start with this, made from a gorgeous sheet of Alexandra Renke Midori designer paper.  Basically a no-nonsense card.  to the pen, cup and smile tag I added the "little notes" tag and a flower from Prima Marketing.  And done!  Mounted the piece onto Bazzill Basics Card Shoppe cardstock.

Simple and fast is the way I like to make cards.  They don't all happen like that....  Hope the rain isn't getting you down!

Need some beautiful supplies:

Virtual Tea Party

Getting through lockdown has been difficult for everyone, but these 3 year olds found a way to socialize, thanks to technology and a couple of creative Moms.  Tea makes everything better, and a vitual tea party arranged by these little people makes my world a little brighter.

For this page I used a beautiful eclectic mix of products:
Background paper: Heidi Swapp (Hawthorne)
Ivy Die: Cottage Cutz, cut from Alexandra Renke paper
Frame Diecut: Echo Park (Coffee)
Typewriter Letters:  Basic Grey
Teacup Stamp:  Brutus Monroe (Tea Time)
Journal Tags: Websters Pages
Flower:  Prima Marketing

And the stars of this fabulous event:
Marshall's friend Lilla
My grandson, Marshall

Wishing you the happiest of days!

Ciao Bella Sunshine Card

I was wondering what kind of sentiment to send for my sisters's upcoming birthday.  As with many others celebrating birthdays right now, it will be a quiet day without friends or family visiting,  no dinner out, and not a chance of going for a quick birthday getaway.  This card seemed fitting, and it is heading to her address as we speak. 

I chose the beautiful Ciao Bella papers for this card.  Layered some cut pieces and torn papers and then added a big blue butterfly cut from Kaisercraft paper.  It all sounds simple, but took me forever to come up with the idea.  Hope she likes it.

Hope you are all staying safe and healthy!

Easter Bunny Treat Boxes

Here is a simple project to do while waiting for the Easter Bunny's arrival.  And, since he has been deemed an essential service, he will need to make his appearance sometime tonight.

Easter Bunny Treat Boxes

I cut the box and face shape from an on-line template.  There are lots of different ones to be found on Pinterest and Google, so pick one that you like.   I had some googly eyes in my craft box, colored in the mouth and nose and cut the bow ties from Prima flowers.  These are filled with chocolates from Le Chocolatier, located in Canmore, AB (they have the best chocolates!!!).  I'll pack these up and drop them off to the grandkids on Easter morning, along with some coloring pages, which I also downloaded off the internet.  The virtual world is a lifesaver in times like these!

However you celebrate, have a happy weekend.
