My Digital Studio: Karata LO

HI Everyone
Here is a LO I did tonight on My Digital Studio, and as we can now print INDIVIDUAL pages (not just in books) this one is going to be sent off all by itself and I will hybrid scrap it when I get it! So with this page I used the Night & Day DSP (which you can no longer buy physically any more but you still can digitally!! And one pack lasts a life time! LOL) and also Cast a Spell DSP. All circles were made with the circle punch stretched, and the scallop is the scallop square stretched. The journaling tag is from the Write Stuff II download which is a full kit of DSP, and embellishments, and is super cool!
If this is something you and your friends may be interested in, I would love to come to your house and teach you all how to do this at a My Digital Studio Workshop. Contact me for details.
The LO design is one that I saw HERE on Anam's blog, she is a wonderful scrapbooker!

Frosting a cake...with GLUE!

HI Everyone
As promised, here are the pictures of some of the projects my Groups (clubs) did this past week-end. The top card is a Frosting Technique done with Tombow Glue, white embossing powder, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter & the Heat tool. It is so much fun to do and adds an unexpected texture to your card. The technique was featured in last months Stampin' Success, which is a magazine SU! demo's receive monthly. I was lucky enough to learn this technique months ago by the inventor herself at the Cloud 9 demonstrators meeting I attend monthly. The layout is from the blog Mojo Monday. So now you know some of my little secrets...I do not design everything myself! So if that is all that is stopping you from being a SU! demo, what are YOU waiting for?
Are you a stay home Mom whose maternity leave is ending soon, or how about a working Mom who pays almost as much for your childcare as you get paid, or maybe you just bought a new house and are looking for a bit of extra income to start some reno's....being an SU! demonstrator can help with that! I am a stay home Mom; my 2 boys are in kindergarten half days, I spend time with them in the mornings on "Mommy Duties", drop them off at school, and I get to spend a few hours doing Demo Duties...making cards, scrapping or prepping for a workshop. Then the bus drops the boys off and I'm on "Mommy Duty" again. No child care, just me, so my pay check is ALL ours! I work my classes and workshops around MY families schedules, not the other way around! If this sounds appealing to you, come on over to my house on Tuesday January 26 where you can learn more plus make some darn cute accessories! Check out 2 posts down for details. Or if this time is not good for you, lets meet for coffee...OR if you don't live by me, drop me a line and I'll call you to have a chat.
Back to the projects:
The Scrapbook Page is the page my girls did at my Monthly Group this month; click on it to make it larger to see all the little details on it. The hearts are all covered with Crystal Effects to make them poof off the page; the chocolate stripe is wheeled and scrapped with the Cutting kit, the DSP is from the Sweet Pea collection, the chipboard is cut out with the Heart & Brackets die from the Big Shot then textured with the new Polka Dot folder from the mini, the gorgeous stamped images are from Love Bandit(mini) which is where I stole the title from, and the letters are from the Jumble Alphabet set; they also used 2 of the awesome new punches from the mini:The Scallop Trim Border which is FREE with a $65 purchase, and the Small Heart punch.
The 3 Adorable Animal Crackers cards are for an up coming private class for Koren and her friends. They are going to be making 4 cards each of the 3 designs, plus they get to keep the Animal Cracker set! If you would like to book this class for your friends, contact me today, or if you have theme in mind, no problem, I can design a new class for YOU!

My Awesome crafting week: My NEW studio!!!

HI Everyone:
Here is a ton of pictures to see what I've been up to all week. Firstly, Wednesday the Olympic Torch ran through my neighbourhood, so we braced the cold and froze outside for 3hours so the kids could see it. It was great day, minus the cold, and after the torch ran by, Tristan asked me "when are we going to see the Olympic torch Mommy?"...Mmmm gee I don't know kiddo? hahah
The boys also started Karate on Monday, I'll make a LO with the pics on it soon.
Now for the crafts! This week my painfully long reno's are finally ALMOST all done! From what was promised to be a 3 week reno, it has been almost 4 MONTHS! Any hoo, here are a few pictures of my space; sorry I'm not the best photo taker. I spent all day Saturday decorating downstairs by putting up decor elements on the wall, including making the Bird Frame with elements, decorating the new Simple Adorned Chain with Charm, then I cut and prepped from my 2 Stampin' Clubs today. I'll post those pics later.
Here is the recipe for the projects:
Decor Bird Frame: ALL SU! yes all INCLUDING the frame
Decor Accent chunky Frame $27.95 ( new definitely decorative brochure download on right)
Songbird Tile, Black, small ( new definitely decore)
Direction of your Dreams, Black, small
Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon (new mini)
Staz on Ink
En Francais jumbo stamp
Simple Adorned Chain & Charm: All SU!
34" Simple Adorned Chain (new mini link on right)
1x 1 1/4" Simple Adorned Charm
Tiny Tags Stamp set (mini)
Choc chip, pretty in pink, Tempting turquoise stamp pads
Big Shot to cut letter "D"
Butterfly was a gift from SU! to all the members of the Founders Circle this year.
The Bird Cage Decor is a FREE Hostess Level 3 gift; book a workshop today and lets try to earn you one for free too! I still have to decorate my stamp room, one step at a time! But my awesome little picture shelves I bought at Ikea hold some of my punches and stamps. They are next to my work station so I just have to reach around and grab them; my paper is all in the file drawers to the right of my chair, my cupboard to my left holds tons of my tools, I LOVE it!
Anyways enough about my stamp studio; if you live in the St.Albert area, pop on over and see it your self. Space is filling up quickly for my Bling on the Accessories night, don't miss out, RSVP today!

YOUR invited to my Bling on the Accessories Opportunity Night

Hi Everyone

YOUR invited to my Bling on the Accessories Opportunity Night
Fabric accessories are totally in style right now and are everywhere, but they can be very pricey. In this class I'll teach you how to make your own gorgeous accessories to add a little bit of bling to your life! You can make a bracelet cuff, hair clip or broach...or all depending how quick you are! You will pay for only what you make, prices starting at $2/fabric square to cut through the big shot; plus $1 for the bling. For example the cuff takes 3 square, $6, 1 chunk of Ribbon with Velcro, $1, plus 3 bling, $3 so grand bargain total is $10!!! I have a selection of fabric choices for you to pick from.
I had so much fun making these and you will too, they are so simple and lets face it, totally cool too! Plus they are a fraction of the cost of ones that you buy in the store!
You may be asking your self why it's called Opportunity Night, the reason is I am going to be chatting and showing you some of the different opportunities being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator has to offer. The chat will be very informal and very short.
When:Tuesday January 26 starting at 7:00-9:00
Where: My House, just out side St.Albert
Why: To make some gorgeous fashion accessories & learn about why being a demo may be right for you
Contact me today to reserve your spot for this fun girls night out and come on over and make some sweet bling!
