Quick and Easy Tags

Need some quick and simple tags for last-minute gift wrapping? I love the ornate, intricate, layered tags I see all over the blogosphere, but I hate the thought of them being swept up with all the wrapping paper and tossed into the recycling! These little guys come together in no time flat, with a few scraps, punches, and dies.

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: Winter Post, Many Merry Messages, Serene Snowflakes
Paper: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Silver Glitter
Ink: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Chocolate Chip, Marina Mist
Accessories: Northern Frost Decorative Strip die, Two Tags die, Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8 Circle Punch, Linen Thread, elastic cord

Happy Holidays!

Wow, I can't believe I've been absent from my blog for such a long time. It's not that I haven't been crafting, but the photos of what I've been making just haven't seemed to make it onto the blog lately. I do have a good excuse though...

We are so excited to be expecting our first child at the end of May! This holiday is certainly a special one, as we enjoy the special traditions of the season and dream about what new traditions we will create as a family in the years to come.

Thanks for stopping by!

Clean and Simple Easy Events Cards

Easy Events is one of the stamp sets I got with my Stampin' Up Convention registration. It is such a versatile set to have in your collection! The images are clean and simple, so I thought they would lend themselves well to a set of clean, white on white cards. There are eight images in total in this set, and the ladies who attended my Easy Events class made eight cards altogether, one with each image. The images are coloured in with Stampin' Pads and Blender Pen, and I used either Crystal Effects or Dazzling Diamonds/Two-Way Glue Pen for a bit of embellishment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: Easy Events
Paper: Whisper White, Perfect Plum, Soft Suede
Ink: Perfect Plum, Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery, Soft Suede, Rose Red, Black Staz-On
Accessories: Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamonds, Two-Way Glue Pen, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, Finial Press embossing folder

Sweets for the Sweet Mini Album

Here's another adorable project using the Sweets for the Sweet stamp set from our last group meeting. It's a simple mini album with pockets for photos, keepsakes and journaling, all held together with a belly band. What a fun way to remember a summer trip, or even to make with a child to hold all those special summer memories.

Back from a Break

Hello stampers! I can't believe July has already come and gone! I got busy at the beginning of July preparing all my swaps for Stampin' Up! convention, then I was away at Convention, and since then, I've been busy hosting some students from Japan and showing them around Vancouver. Check out where we went yesterday: Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver. It is so breathtaking there! We hiked through shady trails surrounded by old growth forests and picnicked on the sun drenched rocks with the ocean breeze cooling us. As a local, you sometimes forget about all the great places close to home, and I love playing tourist in my own town when I host visitors. I didn't intend to be away from my blog for so long, but I'm back; thanks for your patience!

Today's card is a swap I did for an organized swap at Convention. The swap was organized by my friend and sideline, Ida Chan. Thanks Ida, for organizing such a great swap! At Convention, you can swap anytime with anyone else who is swapping cards, and you can also sign up to participate in organized swaps that have a theme or focus. The focus for this one was "Birthday" and I got so many beautiful cards back in return. I'll try to show some of them in the coming days and weeks.

Thanks for stopping by!
