Mixed Matched stockings

Do you ever find yourself with mixed matched stockings?  We seem to have an entire bag of them at home… Our cleaning lady has been trying to sort them out once in a while…  She's a blessing in our home, don't know what we would do without her with our busy schedule.   I had to tell her that Jordan has stockings that are purposely purchased mixed matched.  It's seems to be the pre teenager style!   In the holiday catalogue, the Hang your stocking stamp set and Christmas stockings thinlits dies is the perfect bundle to create mixed matched stockings!  I designed this card for our fundraiser and was so excited to see all the different stockings that could be created! Below here is one of them.  You can click HERE to view all the products to create this card.  You also want to check my link below.  Stampin up has amazing deals that have started today!  Don't miss out!

Countdown ’til Christmas

 

Are you getting ready for the holidays?  I've been fighting this sort of flu bug for the last couple of weeks.  Finally saw my Doctor on Monday, needed to start antibiotics because I was not getting any better.   I've been struggling with this respiratory infection since mid October… Being a nurse, I know I should know better, but I hate antibiotics and delayed it to the max.   Sadly was suffering badly and by Monday looked green when I got to work from my daily commute.. I'm hoping these pills start kicking in asap… Mornings are not so bad but by the afternoon a simple effort like a shower is very difficult and exhausting… So I apologize for not being on top of my game and creating as much.  I feel I should be in my studio creating as the holiday catalogue is coming to an end on January 3rd. Tomorrow, we get to find out what retires… and I still have not played with every product from this amazing catalogue…

I wanted to share today a simple card and tag combo… I'm in love, drooling over the detailed santa thinlits dies and greetings from santa stamp set.  These two products are available at a discounted price when purchased in a bundle. wood mount #143523 or clear mount #143524.  I also love the warmth & cheer designer series paper stack.  It comes 48 sheets double sided 6×6 paper stack.  It's adorable.   Another highlight is the merry medley background stamp set. It comes in clear or wood mount and for my french customers, it's also available in french.  In my photos, you will note the printed tin box, this is from the tin of tags project kit #142011.  You can make 30 tags with it's content.  I just thought it would be amazing to reuse the thin with or without the tags inside..  I added chocolates to my tin.  The full list of products is listed below but I wanted to highlight my favorite products in this card.

I also wanted to highlight an amazing new tool that I got in my last order. I'm in love with the fringe scissors #133325.  They make the perfect fringe, grass trim or even confetti if you cut criss-cross,

If you would like to join one of my clubs that start in January please email me.  3 clubs are available:  the card club, scrapbook club or project life club.  We meet once a month or you can get the stamps in the mail with instructions if you live to far and personalized video from me.

Christmas countdown

Published by under 2016

November is flying by way too fast… I've hardly had time to catch my breath. It's flu clinic season at work, my schedule is a little crazy. Different work schedule, busy week with the girls.  Speaking of girls, Jordan is doing her confirmation this weekend so we've been getting organized for her special event. Also one of my other two daughters has been having a rough week. First heart brake:( we've talked lots, and cried too. Being a nurse for all those years has thought me how important it is to have an open relationship with your children.  So many kids go through tough times and don't have a good relationship to talk with their parents…we even talked about why it didn't workout with her father and me… my heart was still broken to see her with so much pain. She did share with me that she would have told her best friend the exact same thing I told her.  Which relieved me a little bit.  We concluded that time would heal her pain… therefore, this week has gone by way too fast… my focus was my girls, work and while Chris is away for work, I still couldn't find time for myself. I'm taking a me day tomorrow, will stamp my little heart out… a early weekend :)

Read about my housekeeping events :

My good friend Jo-Ann and I are organizing a fabulous stamping event in Kanata, Ontario. I haven't had the time to share with you and it's already half booked. You might want to look at my link HERE! Invite your friends and family! This is going to be the  best occasions catalogue kick off!

I'd like to share below a close up of one of the cards for my fundraiser class. Do you know why I love stampinup products so much? It's not just about quality, it's about coordinating! It is impossible to create an ugly project! The accessories, colors coordinate with the ink, the cardstock! And the stamps are amazing!

Giving back to my community

For those who know me personally, you know that I'm a public health nurse.  Since I've returned full time to work  a couple years ago, I travel out of town to work for the same agency but closer to Ottawa.  I continue doing the same work as when I was a nurse locally.  But I don't get to give as much to clients in my home town anymore.  There are different components to my job, but the one that I am most passionate about is my baby and family home visits.  I assess family's needs, it could be parenting, breastfeeding, financial struggles, you name it.  We do live in an area where poverty is on the high.  Eastern Ontario is high risk for many different reasons.  One of my tasks is to find different community resources to help family in needs.  Nothing breaks my heart more than when these families including children who have no money for food or clothing.  I do refer them to the local food banks and snow suit program.  But I know I can do more. 

As I was commuting to work, I wondered, since I'm not working locally, how can I give back to my community?  Since it's the countdown for the holidays, why not host a Christmas card class where the proceeds could go to the local food bank and to buy snow suits for children in need.  The holidays are the perfect time for giving!!

So mark your calendar, on December 1st at 7 pm, I will be hosting a card class with cardholder.  Here is a sneak peek of the cards you will be making.

There are 3 different options:

Option A:  A goodie bag with a goodie bag 15$ of products, make 8 cards with holder and it includes envelops for 25$, a 10$ donation  will go to my community.

Option B:  includes option A plus the stamp set Hang your stocking also available in french for 57$, a 15$ donation will go to my community.  (pictures of the products are available at the end of this post)

Option C:  includes Option B plus the matching Christmas stocking thinlits for 99$, a 25$ donation will go to my community.  (pictures of the products are available at the end of this post)

Please bring adhesive and paper snips, don't have any ask me about my adhesive bundle.

Payments accepted are:  Credit card, ETM, paypal  (paypal link in right sidebar on my blog)

Can't make it, if you are canadian, ask me for my bundle to go.  Please sign me up for the bundle to go

This class is designed for beginners to expert stampers.

I thank you in advance for your support! xo

RSVP HERE.

One last request, please bring one non perishable item to the event…

In the picture below, you will find sneak peeks of the cards we will be making.

 

Below you will find a close up of my card holder:)

Washi tape AHA moment

So many samples from Stampin'up! products are posted on Pinterest.  I loved the idea of a tag class with the Mason Jar.  Something very similar was posted on Pinterest and it inspired me.  I love bling and embellishment and like to add my twist on things.   Lots of my customers don't know how to use the washi tape available in the catalogues.  So many opportunities exist.    As I was preparing my class, I had this aha moment, a light bulb went on in my brain.  THE WASHI TAPE fit perfectly around the lid… I was so excited.  It embellished the jar perfectly and coordinated with the colors used.

My mother in law brought me a bunch of mason jars on Thanksgiving.  With the proper embellishments, these make the perfect hostess or teachers gift for the holidays. If you want to make easy quick tags for the holidays, the merriest wishes stamp set and merry tags framelits dies is perfect. It's also available in as a bundle, you save an additional 10%.

For this tag, I used the pretty pines thinlits dies #141851.  To make my pines so shiny, I used the copper foil sheets available in the holiday catalogue #142020.  I'm hoping Stampin up brings these sheets in future catalogues. 

If you haven't gotten the new in colors, you are missing out, the emerald envy is a perfect holiday color.  it also coordinates well with cherry cobbler. There's a ribbon bundle in the holiday catalogue , the 3/8" silky taffeta ribbon combo pack #141989.  It's 5 yards of cherry cobbler and 5 yards of emerald envy.

Jordan truly enjoyed our trip the the local bulk barn store, she took this opportunity to get her favorite candies.  If you don't want to put candies in the jars, the perfect option would be to add your favorite cookie recipe.  I made 6 different tag designs, but today I'm only sharing this one.  I've got so many projects on the go and can't wait to update you.

 

Below you will find the list of products and current sales that are happening for November.

Santa’s sleigh card

Who says we can't use a basic black and very vanilla for the holidays? I love non tradition Christmas colors! I'm still on a high from the onstage event that stampinup hosted in Ottawa for Eastern Canada demonstrators… it was fabulous to connect with old demonstrators and new ones as well. It was really exciting to see ladies from my team attend their first stampinup event. Until you attend an event, you can't understand  how special the entire experience is. How the company cares for their demos, how recognition is important and yes how spoiled we are.  Some demonstrators join for the discount.  Because the products are so amazing, colors coordinate, the quality of product is beyond expectations.  Others join for extra income.  Like one of my downline who explained to me  that her stampin up events are helping to pay for  her child's medical treatments and the treatments are working.  A demonstrator's WHY can be very different.  If you are loving stampin up and would love to join my team, I would love to learn your WHY and help you achieve your goals even if it's as simple as getting the discount…  You can contact me or view details HERE.

Below is the card I created for my swap. I got to share and create a bunch of these cards in exchange for other cards made by other demonstrators. I packed for work a bunch of products and came up with the card below.  On my lunch break, I created this beauty.  It's simple and anybody can case it.  It's the perfect card to make duplicates especially for your family and friends holiday cards.

For this card I used the very vanilla #101650  and basic black card stock #121045. I inked up with the archival basic black ink #140931. This ink pad is a must if you don't already have it. It stamps the perfect black color, no purple tinge… and it's permanent ink, perfect for use with watercolouring techniques.   I also used This Christmas Specialty designer series paper #141628 from our annual catalogue. P.172. Yes the annual catalogue contains holiday products as well!  You don't want to miss out.  The package contains 24 sheets.   Imagine how many cards you can create with a large package like this.   My reindeer is from the santa's sleigh thinlits dies #140278,  this one has a coordinating stamp set called santa's sleigh #142057.  If you purchase the stamp set and dies you save 10% for the bundle #143499.  it's one of my favourite bundle from the holiday catalogue.  I embellished with the mini jingle bells  #142002.  You get 60 in a package.  and used my fav. linen thread to tie my bell #104199.  My stars and greetings come from the stamp set Star of light #142110.  This set contains 21 photopolymer stamps and has many greetings.

Here is another version:
