Scrapbooking and Card Workshops starting in January 2014

Clubs and Workshops Starting Soon!!

I am starting up a couple of clubs in January so I can share some really cool techniques with you! I will show you how to create different types of cards and how to get the best use from your paper. In the layout club, we will make some beautiful layouts to showcase your photos from all of your family get-togethers and holidays.

To join, just send me an email to and reserve your spot. Some things to remember:
  • The clubs will run for 10 months (January - June and September - December) and you will agree to attend for all 10
  • You need to agree to spend at least $30 per month on your choice of paper and supplies
  • When we have 5 people in the club or if the monthly sales total $150, one person will be named as the Hostess and receive the Hostess Rewards that month! That means each person will get to be Hostess twice a year for a total of at least $50 in Hostess Rewards! 
I will also have essentials kits available for purchase so you will have your own supplies each month. PLUS I will provide a space for you to keep them at my house so you don't have to lug them back and forth!
The Deluxe kit will consist of a Sure-Cut Deluxe Craft Paper Trimmer (Z1783), Micro Tip Scissors (Z534), Tweezers (Z1382), Memory Book Glue Dots (1772 and Z341) and Foam Tape (Z1151) and will cost $72 (no GST or Shipping charged). Or you can select the Basic kit that will contain everything above except the Paper Trimmer, for a cost of $37.  

Card Club

  • We will meet the third Thursday of the month starting January 16 from 6 - 9

Layout Club

  • We will meet the fourth Thursday of the month starting January 23 from 6 - 9
  • In June, we will meet on Saturday, June 21 from 1 - 4 as I will be in Anaheim for the Close to my Heart convention the last week of June.

I will post photos soon of the January projects

BONUS: If you would like to have a sneak peek at the new Idea Books, watch for my Open House notice in the monthly newsletter! If you are not receiving the newsletter and would like to, please email me so I can add you to my list.

Sparkle & Shine for Christmas!

Welcome to the Cross Canada Blog Hop for November. This month, we are showcasing our beautiful Sparkle & Shine collection. The beautiful colours will be sure to get you in the Christmas spirit!

If you arrived here from Ashley's blog, then you are on the right track. But not to worry! If you get lost along the way, just return to Michelle in Nova Scotia for the full list. While you are hopping, please leave comments. We love to see what you have to say about our creations!

For my contribution this month, I have decided to make a set of center step cards. I love how they are so dimensional! My cards use White Daisy cardstock as the base, with Ruby on the sides and bottom. I like the strip of Silver Glitter Tape along the bottom too! The Candy Stripe paper is from the Sparkle and Shine pack, and the large ornament and overlay are cut with the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge using Sparkle & Shine (the red brocade looking paper) and White Daisy cardstock, then popped up with Foam Tape. The overlay on the ornament needed some bling so I added dots of Silver Glitz Glitter Gel. The sentiment is stamped with Slate and Topiary Pigment Inks on White Daisy and I added three little red sparkle gems as the holly berries. Also popped up with Foam Tape. This is one of my favourite cards! I love the colours and the bling and everything about it.

I hope you enjoyed this little taste of Christmas as much as I enjoyed bringing it to you! Now hop on over to Famida's blog for some more Sparkle & Shine inspiration. Remember, if you get lost along the way, just hop on over to Michelle's blog for the complete list of hoppers!

Please visit my website at for more information about the products used in this month's hop. The Sparkle & Shine paper looks so much better in person than it does in the book!
