Autumn Winter Mini Project

I’ve been sick for over a week now and haven’t been able to craft and boy is it making me cranky!  I hate being sick more than anything.  There is nothing worse than being home, alone, bored senseless and unable to do anything because your head feels like it’s going to explode.  But I am feeling better today as I finally went to the Dr!

Because I haven’t been able to craft, I thought I’d share a super sweet project from Stampin’ Up! 

This sweet project showcases Sweet Shop Designer Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Sweet Cake Stamp Set.  I’m so going to miss the Sweet Shop paper when the mini ends – it has been one of my faves (remember my house mini album).  I’m not going to miss the stamp set though.  Why?  Well… because…I couldn’t help myself and had to add it to my stash!

Project Supplies
Stamp Set:
Sweet Cake
Paper: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Sweet Shop Specialty Designer Series Paper
Ink: Early Espresso, Pool Party, Regal Rose, Rose Red, Soft Suede
Tools: Paper Cutter, Bone Folder, Simply Scored Scoring Tool
Fabulous Flourishes: Island Indigo Baker’s Twine, Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter

Just a quick reminder that the Autumn Winter Mini Catalogue ends July 31, so if you have something on your wish list, be sure to place your order before the end of the month.

See you next time.


Circle Circus in Colours

Boy does time fly when you are having fun! I know…big cliché…but I couldn’t resist. I can’t believe it has been so long since my last post. I’ve been crazy busy preparing for my first go at one of our local markets which is one of the reasons for all of those boxes, notebooks, flower magnets and a variety of other projects I have been sharing lately. I’ve also been keeping my creative brain running at over-drive preparing several projects for our upcoming Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator’s convention. This is my first and I am so excited! I’m busting to share my creations with you but they are a bit of a secret until after convention is over. Not long now, only 14 more sleeps to go!

In the meantime…I do have a project to share to keep you all busy. This little collection is a CASE of a set I found on Pinterest recently. I just love circle circus. It’s one of those go to sets that you can use for any event and coupled with teeny tiny sentiments and these in colours, you can make up a super easy set to give away as a gift or to simply have a few cards on hand when needed. 

Did you know that these colours and ribbons will be retiring when the new catalogue is released? We all know what that means, don’t we? Out with the old and in with the new! Which means that there will be five brand spanking new in-colours added to the collection. Yay! I can’t wait to see what they are. I wonder if we’ll get a sneak peek at convention?

Card: Whisper White, Concord Crush, Blushing Bride, Poppy Parade and Peach Parfait
Stamp Sets: Circle Circus, Teeny Tiny Sentiments Ink: Concord Crush, Blushing Bride, Poppy Parade and Peach Parfait
Tools: Paper Cutter, Textured Impressions Embossing Folders, Adorning Accents Edgelits Die, Big Shot, Decorative Label Punch, Paper Snips
Fabulous Flourishes: Concord Crush, Blushing Bride, Poppy Parade and Peach Parfait Stitched Poly Ribbon Sticky Bits: Snail Adhesive

I’ll now ready to go with workshop bookings for June so I you want to get in early– email me at so we can get your invites out nice and early. And don’t forget…I am more than happy to help by holding your workshop in my home. All you need to do is bring along the refreshments and the guests and I’ll do the rest.

Happy crafting.
