What a week...

Good Sunday is a beautiful day in Southwestern Ontario...lots of fresh snow, the sun is shining...and I am still sick! YUCK...maybe I should have gotten a flu shot, I have been fighting this for a couple of weeks, however, I crashed on Wed night, and am still sick. It isn't fun...and now I am just feeling sorry for myself!!

Earlier this week I had the opportunity to meet with some friends to share my love of stamping. We had so much is one of the projects we made...a fun Santa "card" gift holder. We used the large scallop for the big shot, cut out a scallop from real red, pink piroutte, and whisper white. I counted off 13 scallops and cut the real red at that mark, we attached the smaller piece, at a jaunty angle to the pink, and the remainder we attached to the back to use as a gift card holder. Fold the white scallop in half and attach to the you can see, this is where you can add your greeting. Various punches add the facial features as well as the trim on his hat...Thanks to Heather, a local demo for the idea. She used the small scallop circle from the Big Shot, and added it as a scrapbook element...

The Reindeer ornament card also uses the big scallop...I used a regular sized card, and put it in the big shot, just below the top of the scallop die..that way, you still get the fold of the card. The reindeer face was a copy from Jackie's blog...add the tab punch and this acts as a tree ornament as well. I used the coluzzle to cut his face, and I cut a small snowflake from the big shot and used that as the antlers. A drop of crystal effects makes his nose "shiney and bright".

Check over at Splitcoast for the sunday challenge...I based my reindeer card on this

I hope you can get outside and enjoy this beautiful day...for me...I think I will try and do some stamping...maybe that will make it all better!

Mr Twigster..All Shook UP!

Good Snowy Monday is a little gift box and 4 coaster shaker cards I made yesterday. The idea and design came from an online class I signed up for "UStamp" was an amazing class...chock full of great ideas and tips.

Thanks for stopping by..I have a busy week...3 workshops at minimum 10 for each class...and on Saturday at Sandy's Stamp a stack..we are making 20 cards each...I have everything cut out...and am taking my cardstock to Kinko's, so they can cut all the cardstock with one slice...that will save time, my arm and at least 2 blades.

Back to reality...I must get ready for work...Enjoy your day!

One of our friends at work is expecting her second child, so I made a non typical baby card for her. I am also going to try my hand at a diaper cake...will let you know how that goes.

The Big Shot came in handy, as I used the word die, cut out the JOY, embossed with clear embossing powder. All the paper is retired, but I love last year's in colours. I really am happy with how this turned out.

Last night we saw Trace Adkins and Alan Jackson in concert....WOW. Trace sang for over an hour..Alan..over 90 minutes of was awesome...but boy am I tired this morning...anyway, enjoy this day..sounds like we are in for some wintery weather this weekend. Great excuse to play with paper, and trim, and ribbon, oh my!

A great day...

Yesterday was a bank holiday, in honour of Remembrance Day, and I took advantage of my day and played all day. I have 3 big events next week, so my prep work is well underway. Here are 2 samples for my Tues workshop. I am meeting with 10 ladies from work, who don't stamp, so my projects are pretty basic. In addition to these 2 items, we are also making a card. It will be fun sharing all the tricks with the Big Shot...the bag topper is so simple when using the top note die.

I wish I could play today..but as the old saying goes "I owe, I owe, so off to work I go!"

Remembrance Day

In Flanders Fields
By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918)
Canadian Army

IN FLANDERS FIELDS the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Top Note Bags

Here is another great use for the top note die and the Big Shot...make up cute litte treat bags. A fellow demo showed us how to make these at our last mega event. The little box inside is a 4 x 4 square, scored at 1" all around..make sure you use sticky strip...if you are making boxes it is the only sure thing to keep them together. Use a little this one from Deer Friends, add some layers...and a treat inside and there you go!

The Big Shot can easily cut through multiple layers of paper, in fact I cut all six at once...what time saver. There are over 50 different materials that the Big Shot can cut...WOW.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend. Our oldest daughter is bringing 4 friends home for dinner...I just need to set the table. On the menu..chicken tetrazini, caesar salad, garlic bread and cheesecake for dessert. I am so excited to have them along with Hubby and Kathryn we will have a full house...

What a week...don't you love this part of the world where week ago we were shoveling snow to this week and we were wearing shorts! My posts and my crafting time have suffered this week...busy, busy, busy...but this weekend should be different. I have 3 big events in Nov, so I need to get cracking, so check back this weekend....I will have some teasers for you.

This was a quick and easy card..using up some of last year's in colours, the scallop edge punch for a decorative touch. The stampset is "Flight of the butterfly".

Thanks for stopping by...enjoy your day!

Playing with my Big Shot...

Where does the time go...I had all these plans for the weekend,and I really don't feel like I did much. I did manage to vacuum, but the dusting will have to wait for another time...I may need that phone number I wrote in the dust some day!!!

I did have a chance to play a little with my new toy...there are so many possibilities and so much fun to be had...I used the top note die for the layers...vellum over designer paper. It was a little flimsy so I cut out a piece of heavy cardboard to use as a backing...a quick run through the Big Shot and the job is complete. The stampset is "Flight of the Butterfly"...a fun set for double stamping.

The little pillow box is again a die for the big shot. The silver LOVE is actually a piece of adhesive backed tape from the hardware store...this thing will cut anything. My plan is to make some Christmas ornaments...I just need to get to Michaels.

Hope your weekend was fun filled...and that you got to do what you wanted to do with the ones you wanted to do it with!!
