Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop - Holidays

Welcome to my blog and December's Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop celebrating Holidays! With Christmas around the corner I pulled some pictures from December 2014 that were in pockets without the page being finished. I seem to say that a lot lately! But it's true! The pictures are printed and are waiting for me to go back and fill in the gaps with pretty paper and stamps. In January I will be working on filling in my gaps and sharing my scrapbooking journey here on my blog and over on www.Instagram.com/FromWhereIStamp. Follow me over on Instagram to see what I'm up to!

I needed inspiration for my page and had the above card sitting on my desk that I made earlier this month. It was perfect! The card design was rotated to landscape for the 4"x6" pocket and both projects use paper from the Wrapped In Plaid specialty designer series paper.

These lovely tree die cuts are from the In The Woods dies. Love how the branches can be fluffed up for more dimension!

Harvest Scrapbook Page

Working slowly on pictures from 2007. These 2 pictures are from September 30 and were taken from my front step looking at the field across from the house. They were starting the harvest - I believe it was a field of soybeans.

This is the sketch I used for inspiration to create my page:


This scrapbook page was created during my Facebook live last week. The video is below if you missed watching it. Join me Thursday December 19th at 7pm for my next live.

Country Home Birthday

A fun card perfect for a birthday! The designer series paper is from the Monster Bash designer series paper pack. I like how Stampin' Up! has designs that work for Halloween but can also be used for other projects. The image was coloured in with watercolour pencils and blended with a Blender Pen.

This card was created during my Facebook live. The video is below if you missed watching it. Join me tonight - Thursday December 12th at 7pm for my next live.

Crop Kingston - November Crop

Thank you to those that joined us on November 23rd for Crop Kingston's all day crop. Each attendee received the Night Before Christmas 6"x6" designer series paper pack in their grab bags. Lisa and I provided make and takes using that pack of designer series paper that each person could create during the crop.

The Night Before Christmas designer series paper has a variety of patterns and colours perfect for Christmas but can also be used for other non-Christmas projects. To create this pocket page we used multiple sheets of the designer series paper and a few punches - Tailored Tag & Pine Tree.

We created this cute little treat packaging using a Whisper White envelope. The envelope was scored on 3 sides and part of the flap was cut off. The circle held the top closed. This project uses the Christmas Gleaming stamp set and punches bundle.

Lisa created this pretty 12"x12" scrapbook page. I think the sheets with the tree design from the Night Before Christmas designer series paper is my favourite! This page uses the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and punch bundle.

The final make and take is this vintage looking card using the Frosted Foliage stamp set and the Stitched Nested Label dies.

Global Stamping Friends - Foil and Glimmer


Welcome to our December Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! Our theme this month if Foil and Glimmer - perfect for holiday celebrating! This month I'm sharing a 3D project that we created at a class during Crop Kingston's Fall Retreat in October.

We coloured a Baker's box using a Sponge Brayer, Mossy Meadow ink and Frost White Shimmer Paint. The ink and shimmer paint are mixed together with a small amount of water and then spread onto the Baker's box using the Sponge Brayer. You could also use a sponge or sponge dauber to paint the outside of the box.

Inside there are 4 Mini Curvy Keepsake boxes perfect to fill with chocolate, candy or small gifts!

Poppy Cards

To create this card I used a few of the colours that are in the designer series paper. I stamped the poppies on watercolour paper then misted the ink to soften it.

This card was our make and take at Onstage earlier this month. You can see 2 of the different patterns that are included in the Peaceful Poppies designer series paper pack.

Both of these cards were created during my Facebook live. The video is below if you missed watching it. Join me next Thursday December 5th at 7pm for my next live.

Christmas Countdown Calendar

I put this Christmas Countdown project kit together a few weeks ago live on Facebook. So love how it turned out and I look forward to filling it with Ferrero Rocher so that I can countdown to Christmas! During my Facebook live, which you can watch below, I used different stamps than the suggested Christmas Countdown stamp set - the Nature's Beauty and Merry Moose stamp sets. But did use the ink colours they suggested, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso and Mossy Meadow. This kit can be assembled without a stamp set as well as there was quite a few die-cut pieces leftover.

The boxes are 2" cubes and can hold many different items. The boxes do come out of the cubby-hole easily so you could decorate the back of them for another countdown - Easter, birthday or other fun event! There is still time to order this project kit - it would arrive the first part of December to you but then you can enjoy the chocolate for multiple days all at once!


Make sure to join me on Thursday evenings at 7pm Eastern for my weekly Facebook Live: www.Facebook.com/FromWhereIStamp

Onstage Swaps

My swap card for Onstage Local Toronto was a CASE from one we made at November's Cards & Chocolate class. If you caught my Instagram stories I shared pictures of Onstage and my adventures. If you missed it head over to Instagram and check out the Highlights from the event! I started assembly of my swaps on the train to Toronto on Friday morning but the train swayed too much for me to happy with how the sentiments went on so they were finished Friday night while hanging out with friends at our Airbnb!

Above is the card we made at November's Cards & Chocolate class. It uses Thick Whisper White card stock, Real Red Card stock and a piece of Let It Snow specialty designer series paper.
https://www.stampinup.com/ecweb/product/150528/nature-s-beauty-cling-stamp-set?dbwsdemoid=2157916
Both of these cards use the Nature's Beauty stamp set! $4 from every sale goes towards the Center for Addiction and Mental Health here in Canada.
