Throwback Thursday

I thought for a little bit of fun we would do a "Throwback Thursday" here on the blog! I was making cards for the upcoming Vendor's Market I am participating in at Moorefield United Church on Saturday and made this beauty. It's super cute, and "Retro" (hence the throwback).

Stamps: Say What
Ink: Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana
Paper: Calypso Coral, Baked Brown Sugar, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Word Bubble Framelits, Retro Fresh Washi Tape

Now remember the "Say What" stamp set, Coastal Cabana Ink (quite possibly my favourite colour of all time along with Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding) and Retro Fresh Washi Tape are retiring so get them while you can by visiting by online store.
Happy Stamping,

Sea Street Thank-You

Ever since I saw the Sea Street stamp set in the Demonstrator Preview of the 2014-2015 Annual Catalogue I fell in love! I had planned to make Gabriel's 2nd Birthday a Nautical themed party and use the sea street stamp set and maritime designer series paper, but unfortunately my mom had her accident and a big, fully decorated birthday was out of the question.

But his year, with my mom home safe and sound and not one but TWO birthday parties to plan, I am going to use them for sure! Gabriel is having a construction themed party (because he is turning 3 and he is totally into that right now) but Thatcher is going to have a Nautical themed party because I still think it is so cute, and he's turning 1 and doesn't have much of an opinion on these things, so I get to choose.
Stamps: Sea Street
Ink: Coastal Cabana, Rea; Red
Paper: Night of Navy, Maritime DSP, Whisper White
Accessories: 1 1/4 inch circle punch, 1 inch circle punch

Sweet but simple, and bonus, it can be used for a man! This is always something I have trouble with, and I know others do too so I hope this helps!
Happy Stamping,

The Retired List and Cute Babies

I've been absent for a little while but it has been so gorgeous outside I have been playing with m sweet boys in the sunshine instead of crafting! The weather has turned colder and rainer this week and I have been back in the craft room a little bit. That and some great promotions going on.

DO you know the Retired List was released yesterday? And wow, is it ever big! There is a ton of things on there, some up to 50% off. I always get anxious when I see the retired list because sometimes some of my favourite products are leaving (I don't do well with change). But I have to remind myself (and you if you're anything like me) that it just means there are bigger, better and newer things coming along with the Annual Catalogue release on June 2nd!

Last week I whipped these baby cards up real quick, I made a boy one and a blue one. They're so cute and you can never have enough baby cards around (especially because right now I feel like my friends are having a major baby boom and I love it)! I recently acquired this set and I love it!

Stamps: Little Sunshine
Ink: Blushing Bride, Pool Party
Paper: Whisper White, Pool Party, Blushing Bride
Accessories: Heart Punch, Rhinestones, Bakers Twine, Word Bubble Framelits, Sweet Dreams Designer Buttons
