These pictures are from a Great Big Sea concert from December 2004. They released a new CD that year that included the song Shines Right Through Me and I decided to use the tune as inspiration. I used the lighthouse from the Sailing Home stamp set and the light beam, title & dirt from the High Tide stamp set.
Last month at the team meeting we were able to create this adorable truck! The die cuts out the truck with tabs that you fold but make sure to stamp the front grill, doors and windows on before assembly. I had a hard time deciding whether the truck needed front wheel wells or not. It still looks a little wonky to me but I'm not going to change it.

Stamps: Ride With Me
Colours: Cajun Craze, Basic Black
Accessories: Truck Ride die, Watercolour Pencils, Tear & Tape

My Stampin' Up! order with some new products arrived last Wednesday! It was a wonderful surprise to come home to. For my Facebook live last Thursday I used the new Seaside Notions stamp set to create this card. The card base is Thick Whisper White cardstock - perfect for card bases - and a piece from the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper. The Seahorse and the shell were both coloured with Stampin' Blends. For both images I used a variety of colours to get the look I wanted. Tip for you when using multiple colours of Blends, after using them make sure to wipe the end on a scrap piece of paper to get rid of any unwanted colour transfer.

Stamps: Seaside Notions
Colours: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Night of Navy, Balmy Blue, Pool Party
Accessories: Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper, Tailored Tag Punch, Stampin' Blends, Stampin' Dimensionals

An awesome challenge and so many ways to make a project! I decided to create 2 cards using the same line - Wood, Yellow and Embellishment. The challenge was set for last month's team creative challenge by my awesome upline Lisa.

Can you choose between the lighter So Saffron or the brighter Daffodil Delight as your favourite? Me, I cannot decide, I like them both!

Did you watch me create these live? Every week on Thursday evenings at 7pm Eastern I host a Facebook Live where I create a project - scrapbook pages, pocket pages or cards. Join me on Facebook at:

Stamps: Winter Woods
Colours: So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Soft Suede, Whisper White
Accessories: Versamark, Gold Embossing Powder, Gold Faceted Gems, Gold Pearls

Hello! Welcome to July's Scrapbook Global Blog Hop. Our theme this month is travel. I found these train trip pictures from March 2008 that were waiting to be scrapped and a perfect fit for this month's theme!
Happy Christmas in July! Last week was the Stampin' Up! Incentive trip to the Greek Isles. While I didn't earn the trip it was fun to watch other demonstrators from around the world share pictures of the 2019 Holiday Catalogue. It put me in the Christmas spirit and I knew that a Christmas card would be a perfect swap card for Sunday's team meeting!

My brother gave me the Dashing Deer stamp set for Christmas last year and I believe this is the first time I've used it! When first looking at the stamp set I thought the doe and buck were one stamp but they are not, but they are perfectly sized to work together. I used the Stamparatus to stamp all my images since I was making 3 cards. It allowed me to get the stamped images to show up in just the right spot on all of my swaps.

Stamps: Dashing Deer, Buffalo Check background
Colours: Merry Merlot, Pretty Peacock, Very Vanilla, Gold
Accessories: Versamark, Gold Embossing Powder, Layering Oval dies, Stampin' Dimensionals, Stamparatus

Fireworks! Since last week was Canada Day I thought scraping these photos was a good idea to do on my Facebook live. If you haven't watched yet you will most likely hear me talk about not liking the page and how it wasn't turning out for me the way I thought! Now that a few days has passed I really do like this page! What do you think? - leave me a comment below if you'd like.
This is my second card I made using the Dino Days stamp set. I really wanted to use this dinosaur on my first card but the neck was soooo long the head was the only part that would've showed on the card! It looked silly for it to float there so I decided to create this card.

This Dinoroar Suite has designer series paper, stamp set, die set and enamel shapes! You can see the whole Dinoroar suite here:

Stamps: Dino Days
Colours:  Granny Apple Green, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Black
Accessories:  Subtle Embossing Folder, Stitched Rectangle dies, Stampin' Dimensionals

Hello and welcome to our July Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop. This month we are creating projects that feature the In Colours from either the 2018-2020 or 2019-2021 collections!

Stampin' Up! provided us demonstrators with colour combinations for the In Colours! I love that they do that for us. I decided to use one of the colour combos to create a card - Purple Posy, Pool Party and Smokey Slate.

Lilypad Lake is the perfect stamp set to use right now! Summer is here and this card makes me think of dusk along the water while camping. This card is a CASE from Cathy Casey that I found on Pinterest. The "waves" were stamped with Versamark onto the new Fluid 100 Watercolour paper then embossed in White. Then I used an Aquapainter and the 3 colours (Purple Posy, Pool Party, Smokey Slate) to create the water. A quick wipe of a tissue after it dried to take the colour off the embossed part and it was ready to assemble!

Stamps: Lilypad Lake
Colours: Purple Posy, Pool Party, Smokey Slate
Accessories: Lakeside Dies, Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper, White Embossing Powder, Versamark, Rhinestones, Silver Thread, Stampin' Dimensionals, Aquapainter

Thank you for stopping by! Head on over to Libby's blog to see her project featuring the In Colors!

At the June crop I borrowed a new stamp set called Dino Days. I wasn't sure if I would buy it and wanted to play around with it to create a few cards. I did some Pinterest searching for inspiration and found a few cards using rectangles of colour with stamped images. This is a great simple card. I stamped each dinosaur in the colour it is stamped on but you could get the same outcome by using Versamark.
