Christmas Layout with Echo Park

Starting TODAY, receive a FREE STAMP with minimum purchase of $20 while supplies last 
Hi All! 
Today's layout is made with Echo Park's Reflection Christmas Kit, this is such a fabulously, vintage vibe collection and I love it! I have the full kit in shop, and also in individual sheets too. I also used My Favorite Things Ornament Stamps and matching Die; been using these a lot lately cause they are FABULOUS! So easy to make those cute ornaments, takes 2 seconds to die cut the strip out, and about 10 seconds to stamp in the ornaments to make a custom matched embellishment for your project! I finished the layout off with making a few more fleur/snowflake embellishments with Heartfelt Creations Sweet Juliet Die! Again, I'm in love with this die! You can change it up so easy to make flowers, starbursts or snowflakes! Great versatile die to purchase!

Did you know you can follow me on Instagram HERE and on FACEBOOK HERE

Thanks for popping by!

Bo Bunny and Sweet Juliet Snowflake

Hi All
I'm really happy how this layout I made turned out, I think it's so pretty, which is not my normal style.  I used the Bo Bunny Wonderland Winter paper collection (which I love) and a few gorgeous dies from Heartfelt Creation; Sweet Juliet and the Decorative Blossom Corner for the flourish on the top right.  The Sweet Juliet Die is what I used to make that AMAZING snowflake! All you need is a pretty brad, and you just fold the flower back on itself! EASY and Pretty.  You can also make it look like a gorgeous flower by folding all layers back.  The brad I used is the new Karen Fosters Sparkles! Again, LOVE these! I'm on my second pack! I have them in a few color choices in the shop!

Lawn Fawn Cuteness!

Hi All! 
Sorry, been neglecting the blog again! I know the weather has change for the worst and winter has officially made it's presents known, but the roads have been cleared and sanded, I hope you'll make the trip out to visit the shop! It's packed FULL with WINTER and CHRISTMAS goodies for you to create away to your hearts content.  What a better way to spend your snowy weekend then stocking up on NEW goodies and scrapping the weekend away?  There is a $5 CROP on tonight at the SHOP, call to register!!! Coffee and Cupcakes will await your arrival.

I wanted to share a couple lovely Facebook messages I've received this week from new customers; first one was forwarded from  the organizers of The Swag Bag here in St Albert:

"Just wanted to thank you for doing this - I love it. I am making a point to contact vendors on the list I got. So far I have been to the Ink Stamper twice and spent more than I can tell you! Also bought 2 pedicures for Christmas gifts from Heaven Essence...Seriously, The Inked Stamper is going to be my favorite little stop-in place! I would love to take a mixed media class. Thanks for adding my name to the draw."

"Regarding the Sizzix magnetic platform: I bought mine in the US just before I moved to Canada. Just wanted you to know, you are only charging $5 more than the US price in most stores. From the perspective of a new arrival to Canada from the US, you are offering 
people a wonderful deal!"

It makes my heart warm that people take the time to send positive feedback over. THANK you so much!

Lawn Fawn Christmas Layout


Hi All
Had a few minutes (no I sure didn't, but I MADE a few spare minutes) Sunday afternoon that I decided to make a scrapbook layout.  As usual it took a lot longer then I anticipated cause I custom made and altered all them embellishments, but to me, that's what makes scrapbooking fun! 
The paper I used is from Lawn Fawn, and it's so cute! FYI I've got lots of Lawn Fawn Stamp Set with Matching DIES coming in!!!! I also used wood embellishments that I painted with Tim Holtz Distress Paints and covered with Clear embossing powder.  The wood snowman and snowflake was embossed with White Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel and I'm LOVING how it turned out! I also used Grunge Board and cut out the Tim Holtz Lamp post (inked and clear embossed) and Deer (layered with sookwang and covered with Bronze Glitter Ritz). I finished the layout off with added adding snow with my Snow Marker (sold out but will be back in stock asap) and sparkle bling, including that fabulous starburst cluster that I just got in stock!  Think my favourite detail is tying the tree to the car! 
I've got LOADS of new products in the shop and LOADS more coming in!!! Hope to see you down there soon. Don't forget to check out the fabulous CLASSES we are offering! Few spaces left in most.

Meet up Point for CASH MOB!

I'm plunking away making tons of Christmas Cards! This one is with Heartfelt Creations Poinsettias stamp, it's ONE big background stamp!! LOVE it and if you don't have it, YOU NEED IT! Trust me! I've made loads of cards with it, using it as a background stamp like I have here, or by using the matching solid Die to cut out multiple flower layers in one cut!!
Hi All! 
I'm super excited to announce that my store is the meet up point for CASH MOB St Albert! How exciting is that! Maybe one day I'll actually get to be the mobbed store, but for now, I'm super pumped that so many people are going to hear about the store!!!  I hope you will make it down and bring some friends too! For those who don't know what CASH MOB is: once a month they "mob" one store (local owned business, not big chains)....it's always a secret what store will be mobbed! The premise is YOU learn about a what local businesses are available in St Albert, YOU help your local economy by purchasing local.  They suggest you spend $20 in the store that night, and spread the word to your friends! Best advertising is word of mouth referrals!
Hope to see you there at 7pm!

Confessions of a Scrapbook Store Owner

Hi All!
Ok, it's confessions and resolution of a scrapbook store owner time; me, Dawn, owner of The Inked Stamper. 
CONFESSION: As most of you know, I've been dealing the best I can this past year after loosing my Dad. It's been very difficult and as a result, the store was not my main priority and it has suffered.  The store has gone though a lot of ups and downs, depending on how I was dealing that month. I'm sorry you had to see that, but  I wear my heart on my sleeve, always have, and always well, and I won't apologies for that. 
  I've focussed a lot on Mixed Media for a few reasons. 1) It makes me happy 2) it was my art therapy 3) It seems to make a lot of you happy as my Mixed Media Classes fill almost instantly. BUT I know it does not make ALL of you happy though. So I am going to fix that! 
Most of you know, I was trying to sell it.  My plan was to sell it to someone who could bring the store back up to it's glory, and allow me to still teach there.  Well, that never panned out, and I just didn't have it in me to close it! I almost did a few time though, but it seemed that too many "good things" kept falling in front of! 
 One of those "good things" is my STAFF! I've got a GREAT staff helping me now, not only in the store, but designing!  I have so much trust in them, and I'm so grateful for them! Another good thing was I received a nomination from  St Albert Chamber of Commerce for outstanding customer service. However, I turned it down cause at the time, I thought I was closing. The Great Canadian Carnival brought back some passion by meeting so many new people, and now seeing them in our classes and in the store is fabulous! Now I'm teamed up with Creative Events Scrapbooking; a new company dedicated to putting on wonderful crops!  And there is one other thing...but that's hush hush! 

OK onto the RESOLUTION part: I know I've been focusing on Mixed Media, and I'm so happy so many of you enjoy it and see it for the fabulous art/techniques that it involves. I do know I've been ignoring my traditional Scrapbookers and Card-makers, well here is my promise! I PROMISE to include more traditional classes on the schedule again: not just by me! Kelly, Sherry and Courteney are SO talented...and I'm trying very hard to get Nancy back. (she took a break after the birth of her 4th baby) 
And with this resolution: I promise to stock more traditional products: DIES, BLING, STAMPS for cards. Just this morning, I've placed a big Christmas Order focusing on Cards and Layouts! (don't worry Mixed Media crowd, I've got your back, I've ordered in lots of new goodies for you too!) 

So if you're reading this...and you're a traditional scrapbooker or cardmaker and you haven't popped in to The Inked Stamper in awhile...please, give me another chance! I'll do my best to make you HAPPY! And incase you didn't know: I've ALWAYS offered custom order service! I can't carry everything, but I can try to get it in for you! Please JUST ASK!

Please SHARE my store with your friends! Friends don't let Friends Scrap alone! Please LIKE my FACEBOOK page as well...I post more samples there!

I hope you enjoy the samples I made this past week to prove I can still do traditional! :) 
I'm grateful for ALL of your support
