Advent Calendar CASE


My gorgeous upline, Katie, made this simply adorable advent calendar which she CASED from Brenda Quintana. I just loved the cuteness of it all, and decided to make one myself using the ever-so-lovely "25 and Counting"stamp set from Stampin' Up! Head over to Brenda's blog for a tutorial on how to make this-but you'd better be quick if you want to make this in time for the 1st of December to start your advent calendar.....I'm still deciding what treats I want to put in the little peek-holes. Hershey kisses work well, but I'm trying to find another wee something.

Getting in Early for Christmas

You make think me crazy-but I like to be prepared.....I like to plod away at making my Christmas cards because it is that time of the year (like no other) when we typically give away a lot of them. So I have started early....                                                     

 I wanted to try out a few different techniques that typically work out better with a silhouette image. I also am not into Santa-so this lovely silhouette for Christmas from the "Come to Bethlehem" set was a great starting point
 So I've made this flip card before-but I made it Christmas-y this time around.
I CASED this beautiful card from Paula Dobson using the bouncing brayer technique

 Just a few of the projects we have been working on at Stamp club....This cute "Blast Off" slider card where the astronaut slides up to the planet
 Using the faux metal technique-but simply copied from the Stampin' Up! Annual catalogue. Ooops, I noticed that I made a slight change to the one in the catalogue.
 Another slider card using "Greeting Card Kids"-and using acetate again-I seem to be using acetate a lot recently....

Holiday Mojo

We'll I've been itching to get a bit creative recently-but have been too busy to have a decent chunk of time to be creative. I've been really missing my creative outlet-and have enjoyed getting back into it - I  feel sane again! 


Lego Racers card I made for one of Sami's special friends



 "Forever Young" photo frame wall card


Just had to try out making a swing card using the new Framelits die. I couldn't figure it out by myself-so I found a video tutorial over @ Dawn's stamping Studio I love how easy it is to make, and just a wee bit swish, too...

Some beautiful CASED creations....


I totally CASED this beautiful card from Julia Leece. I love this acetate card, and I thought I would give it a try... beautiful design, Julia!


I also CASED this gorgeous male-themed card using "The Open Sea" set from Ann Craig. This is my try at it... A very quick and easy card to make. I have left mine blank, but I am planning on a tag or stamped sentiment addition.


I loved this little girl silhouette from the "Forever Young" stamp set, and wanted to create a card that was a little vintage-y...still playing with this set-so gorgeous!

We also made this 6"x6" scrapbook page using the "Everyday Enchantment" DSP paper and "Fresh Vintage" stamp set from the Sale-a-bration catalogue. The stamp has been embossed with clear Embossing powder, and then sprayed with smooch spritz-but it is hard to see in the photo.
This is the original from Vic that I cased

The lovely Vic Chapman also showed us how to make this cute little tri-fold card. I basically CASED her layout, but used different papers. It is so quick and fun to make.



This gorgeous card was CASED from Suzie Lowe's gorgeous gift/paper bag design-I just transferred her design to a card. Making the rosette is always a "Wow" moment as something so simple just falls into place.

I've been playing around a wee little bit with the new "Spiced Paisley" stamp set, and "Spice cake DSP and Designer Fabric (which is in the new Summer Mini Catalogue)... I just love the colour combination, and design of these beautiful products.
