Altered Notebooks

So a little while ago I made a few of these cute notebooks up! They are fairly simple to make and they also turn out so pretty. I also made each notebook with a matching personalized pen!

This Designer Series paper is "Bontanical Gazette". It was out of the Occasions Mini Catalogue.

This notebook is made using "Green House Gala" Designer Series Paper. This paper is retired now but it is originally from the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalogue.

This notebook is made using "Springtime Vintage" Designer Series Paper, originally from the Occasions Mini.

Thanks for taking and look!

Happy Stamping

Happy Canada Day!

So stamping friends, here is another belated post! My Canada Day Post. We had a wonderful Canada Day, we had a bunch of family over for a BBQ and some drinks and then we went and watched the local fire works. Cody is on our town's fire department and they put on an awesome fireworks show every year in Drayton. It means he usually misses out BBQ, but the fireworks are always great.

Cody's 2 and a half year old niece watched fireworks for the first time this year, we were a little worried how she'd react, but she did awesome! She absolutely loved them, and she was just so excited, it was adorable.

Anyways without further is a lil something for you for Canada Day!

So I made these when I invited everyone over for our Canada Day Party. They were so simple, quick and easy. Not too much embellishment but when you are making a bunch of them, that's usually the way to do it.

The colours I used were "Real Red" (page 177) and Whisper White (page 180). The ribbon is "Whisper White" 5/8" Satin Ribbon, on page 195 of the Idea Book and Catalogue.

This lovely little stamp is out of the Occasions Mini Catalogue on page 18. It is called "Canadian Pride" and I think it's awesome!

The other stamp set I used is "Inviting" and it is located on page 165 of the Idea Book and Catalogue. I used "Basic Black" ink on page 180.

Thanks for stopping by and having a look.

Happy Stamping

Happy Father's Day!

Yes, it is a little belated but I have been busy! Here are the father's day cards I made for my dad and my Cody's dad! Love them both so much and wouldn't have been where we are today without them. Please enjoy :) and Sorry they are a little late, I am just starting to catch up with all my blogging and stamping once again. or

The card stock I used was "Baja Breeze" (111352 for 8.5x11 or 124265 for 12x12) on page 178 of the new Idea Book and Catalogue, "Chocolate Chip" (102128 for 8.5x11 or 124273 for 12x12) on page 180, and "Whisper White" (100730 for 8.5x11 or 124302 for 12x12) also on page 180.

Here is the same card design, only I reversed the colours, just to mix it up a little bit. I used the "Perfect Polka Dots" Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (117335) for the background and white "Baker's Twine" (124262) is on the background as well.

I used the "Decorative Label" Punch (120907) on page 209 on the Idea Book and Catalogue. This has to be one of my favourite punches! It just adds such a nice look every time.

The Ink I used for this project matches the card stock perfectly of course "Baja Breeze" (111833) and Chocolate Chip (100908) located on pages 178 and 180 of the Idea Book and Catalogue.

Thanks so much everyone for stopping by and having a look! Again I apologize for my lack of blog posts lately, I hope to make up for it soon!

Happy Stamping

There are 5 new In Colour products you can chose from! The new colours are Island Indigo, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, Wisteria Wonder, and Calypso Coral.

New Hostess Benefits ProgramThis catalogue along with coming out with brand new products and projects Stampin' Up! has come out witha new Hostess Benefits Program. The way this program works is you get "hostess dollars" to spend on ANY product in the current Catalogues. There is a special Hostess section at the fron of the catalogue (pages 10-15) that Hostess can shop, with specially priced exclusive products, which have been priced to give you major discounts! But, if you don't like any of those products (but seriously how could you not?!), buy whatever you want with your Hostess Dollars! And, once your sales toaly reaches $525, you start earning your choice of any catalogue item at 50% OFF, in addition to your Hostess Dollars.Check out page 9 pf the new catalogue for a chart of how to earn your hostess dollars and 50% off merchandise.

Product SuitesThere are 14 Product Suites throughout the catalogue, containing coordinating product to help you get a designer look to your projects. These collections are based on colours from each of the 13 Designer Series Paper packages, and 1 of the Specialty Designer Series Paper packages in the new catalogue. The product suites include: Frightful Sight (page 22), Letters to Santa (page 30), Domestic Goddess (page 52), Big Top (page 62), Timeless Portrait (page 78), Nursery Nest (page 82), Build-A-Bear (page 94), Berry Blossoms (page 99), Beyond the Garden (page 106), Paisley Petals (page 117), Flirtatious (page 126), Beau Chateau (page 132), Pocket of Posies (page 138), Well Worn (page 144), and Just Add Cake (page 155).

Stamps! Everywhere Stamps!
There are a ton of new stamp sets and I am in love with almost all of them (of course!)! Just a few of my favourite new sets include Merry & Type (page 31), Delicate Doilies (page 127), and My Friend (page 139).

Designer FabricThis excites me so much! I am not really sure why, because I really don't know how to sew very well (making it my goal to be better), but they are just all so beautiful. Stampin' Up!'s fabric line has expanded to include several designs which coordinate with the Designer Series Papers in the new Catalogue, and a few previous designs have returned. Keep an eye out for upcoming classes as I plan to incorporate these beautiful fabrics.

Miscellaneous Supplies and AccessoriesI have to point out the new Embossing Powders on page 201!! I have been saying forever that Stampin' Up! needs to come out with more colours in their embossing powders and they have finally done it!! The Cherry Cobbler would make a wonderful addition to Christmas Projects, and I must say having used the Wild Wasabi, Melon Mambo, and Tangerine Tango (they are availble now in the Occasions Mini) the colours are just as vibrant in real life as they are in the catalogue.

Punches/Dies/Embossing FoldersThe new Lace Ribbon Border punch is absolutely adorable and comes with a TON of possibilities. You can make border strips or cut out the lace medallions and use them seperately. There are also some new embossing folders which are absolutely darling. The desinger frames set will add that little something to projects and the Flower Garden flower is also impressive. I am also loveing the Petite Pocket Bigz XL Die on page 221.

Decor Elements and Stencils
THe Decor Elements and Stencils have been moved into the Idea Book and Catalogue and they are located on pages 227-234. This will be more convenient, as you can view them in the same book as the coordinating product.

I hope this helps you all out. Remember the best way to earn FREE PRODUCTS and get FREE CLASSES is to book your Free Workshop with me! I also do free one-on-one consulting in my home, and offer services such as invitations, customized scrapbooks and gifts, if your low on time and need someone else to take care of the crafts!

I'm Back!

Hi All! I'm back (with a few minor changes of course)!As most of you know I took a hiatus from blogging, and scrapbooking, facebook, and most things Stampin' Up! for the last month or so. This was all for good reason though, as on June 25, 2011, I had the best day of my life and married the man of my dreams (yaaay!!!)!! :)

We couldn't be happier. It feels a little odd though. It has been a whirlwind few months, getting things ready, and all that was ever on my brain was wedding things and now it's over with! Ahh, a little sad! But I thought I just had to share some pictures with someone.

The photos are still water-marked, as they were on our proof disc. We still haven't chosen our final pictures yet (I have to choose from 1174!!).

So here are a few teaser wedding pictures enjoy...

P.S.In Stampin' Up! News...I have had a few contact changes, so make sure you look them up at the end of the post, or on my website (which has changed slightly).

The new catalogue came out and it is absolutely beautiful! So many amazing things, I am in love!! Stay tuned for more projects using the new products.

I promise to do more Stampin' Up! posts this week, swear it! I just couldn't help but share these babies!

My love and I lighting our unity candle.

First Kiss <3

Husband and Wife <3 ... Apparently we are excited about that..haha

Moorefield United Church, where we were married in our hometown, along with Cody's other wife (the pretty red truck).

To heck with limos, we left in fire trucks! It was so much fun, we drove around town with lights and sirens waving to everyone (I felt like I was a queen in a parade) before we went for pictures. You must understand, our town is small, everyone was either invited to the wedding or standing on their porches waving to us as we went by!

A picture with Cody's (and my) second family. The Mapleton Fire Department! All wonderful, wonderful people!

My favourite little person, our flower girl, Madeline who is our niece.
Here we are, married :)

Our wonderful wedding party.

Another group shot!

Both of our families!

Cody being silly (note: do not be silly when someone has a camera, it will get caught!)haha



My flowers with my grandma! She passed away about 2 years ago now, and I wanted to include her in our day as I am sure she was watching us from above :)


That's all I have for now! Thanks for taking a look.
