Monster Hugs

April 27, 2017 in
This monster reminds me of Sully from Monsters, Inc. Do you see it? I wanted my monster to sparkle and it was so easy to do that with the Clear Wink of Stella. Make sure when you apply the Wink of Stella to your project not to squeeze very hard or else the sparkle might be over powering.

Stamps: Yummy in My Tummy
Colours: Crumb Cake, Basic Grey, Mint Macaroon, Basic Black
Accessories: Clear Wink of Stella, Basic Black Baker's Twine

Here is my second swap from OnStage in Toronto. I took 40 swaps with me to OnStage and was able to swap all of them! The trick for swapping is to get it done early in the day.

Stamps: Touches of Textures, One Big Meaning
Colours: Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Basic Pearl Jewels

My upline had an event at her house the weekend before OnStage so that those of us attending OnStage in Toronto could create/finish our swaps! It was very productive for me, I was able to complete 20 cards using the Always Adventure stamp set. It was a lot of Big Shot cutting but so worth it.

Stamps: Always an Adventure
Colours: Garden Green, Soft Sky, Marina Mist, Crushed Curry, Soft Suede, Whisper White
Accessories: Outdoor Adventure Framelits, Stampin' Dimensionals

Easter Baskets

April 12, 2017 in ,
I really enjoy making thank you gifts for our all day crop attendees. For the April 1st crop I made these cute baskets. Inside I put some premade Easter basket filler and some Carrot Cake Kisses - yum! They really do taste like carrot cake.

The starburst is the really pretty glitter paper that you can earn during Sale-A-Bration!

Stamps: March Paper Pumpkin stamps, Woodgrain background
Colours: Soft Suede, Whisper White
