March Blogging Friends Blog Hop!

https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-VRMZZLtB_-s/Vv3Si6A9TQI/AAAAAAAACDk/Nw1Tr2Lo6m46D2jVTVOOATYsdVdDebu4Q/s1600/Blogging%2BFriends%2BIcon.jpg

Hey there stampers,

Can you believe it is March already?  According to our little season predictors (here in Ontario, we have Wiarton Willie) spring is almost here!  I am very done with winter, so I really hope he is right.

A new month also means a new blog hop with my blogging friends!  I love our hops!  This months hop is featuring Sale-a-bration items.  I created two cards for the hop using my top 2 favourite stamp sets in the Sale-a-bration catalogue.  Can you guess which two they are?.......

Yep.  The first is the Hey Chick stampset.  I mean common - living in farm country or not this one is super cute!  All of these images are 'da bomb' as my kids would say, but what really caught my attention was the 'hey, chick!' sentiment lol.  Makes me giggle every time.

I kept my card simple, focusing on the image, the greeting and the colouring of the chick  as the main focus. I used our new stampin'up! coloured pencils and blended the colours using my Aqua painter.

My second card features my other favourite stampset.  It is the fun lovin' ice cream/ taco/hot dog truck.  The possibilities are endless with this set!  I went with some bright, bold and fun colours.  Again, I coloured the image with the stampin'up! pencils and Aqua painter.  

Sale-a-bration ends march 31st so if you would like to add these free stamp sets to your collection, head on over to my Canadian on-line store.  

Be sure to hop on through all of the bogs to see their fabulous creations.  Up next is Rick Adkins. You can click on the picture below or follow the links on the list at the bottom of the post.  

Happy Stampin'

Global Design Project Challenge for a new Grandma!

Hello my stampin' friends,

I have a card to show you today that I am so very proud of - I just LOVE how it turned out!!!

The folks over at Global Design had a great sketch to follow this week and it was perfect to create a cute little baby card for my friend and downline who became a grandma for the first time!  

Here is my card...



The challenge link and sketch...

How did I do?  I think it is a pretty good likening.  Here is a close up of my greeting.  I used the retired stampset Cuddles and Kisses - it definitely is a keeper.

I used some of my favourite things to create this card.....the Triple Banner Punch to create the Tempting Tuqoise and Watermelon Wonder banners and the Stitched Shapes Framelits to beautifully frame my greeting with Crushed Curry.


Don't forget to love the inside of your card!  For this I used the stampset Something for Baby.

Valenties Day with Roger's TV Daytime!

Hi my Stampin' friends,

I am so excited to share with you the pictures of my Valentines projects and the display I had for my most recent visit to see my friends at Roger's TV show Daytime!  I just LOVE my time there and creating projects for their viewers and we even get to create some projects live on air!

Here are the pictures I took that day...The first are some of my whole display.



This next picture is of some home decor I created using my Sweet and Sassy Framelits.  Did you know that you get 15 different thinlits in that Sweet and Sassy framelits pack?  Awesome value!  I used an old shadow box and I created 4 different sized hearts using the more curvy heart in the package and cut them out of different patterned paper from the Sending Love DSP Stack.   I think this was my favourite project from this show.


Next is another home decor item I made.   This time with a regular picture frame and my Large Letters Framelits.  I used some Real Red Glitter paper to create the 'Xs and Os" as well as the tiny heart in the corner - so cute!


This picture includes some little valentines treats that I made.  Treat bags for my kids bus driver and a truffle heart with a decorated belly band.  There is also another Valentines Card in the corner. 
I also made a couple of different Window Boxes.  This is the one we made live on air!  I just love those little kissy lips. 
Here is another one I made for display - more hugs and kisses!

A close up of one of the cards with the other two photo bombing!  lol
Here is a close up of the truffle hearts with belly bands.  Each one was a little bit different.  I love just playing around. 
And last but not least a close up of the tags for the treat bags. I gave out some to the folks at Daytime for all of their hard work another is earmarked for my garbage man who help coral my dog when he got loose last week  - ugh, but that is another story!

However you like to spend Valentines Day, I hope you enjoy it.  

Happy Stampin'

Valenites with The Paper Players




Hey there stampers,

I have a great valentines day card for you today and it has already run a mile.  I created it for The Paper Players Challenge......

http://thepaperplayers.blogspot.ca/2017/02/pp330-theme-challenge-from-claire.html 

my card class ladies created it in my Valentines Day card class and then I took it with me today as a part of my Valentines Day display for my  appearance on Roger's Daytime TV!

I just love this theme challenge and I am so happy to participate with my card.  This card is my favourite of the 3 that I made for my class and for Daytime.  

I created it using the Sealed with Love Bundle.  I had so much fun playing with all of those little framelits, and who says they have to be for Valenties.  How about a nice anniversary card or just sending a little note to say hi.  

I also included the new DSP paper from the Sending Love paper stack that is featured in the Occasions Catalogue.





Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to check my blog tomorrow to see more of the Valentines projects I made for my trip to see my friends at Daytime.  

Happy Stampin'
