Canvas Project

Hello everyone out there in Blogland! I simply couldn't wait to share this project with you. I am not sure that the pictures do it justice, but there they are nonetheless. For the second week in a row, I would like to thank Katie from Scrapbookers Cabin for this awesome awesome project. Katie is a wonderful instructor and if you live in the Spruce Grove area you should pop in for a class from her. Anyhoo, Katie taught us how to make this beautiful canvas along with the adorable flowers that are on the canvas. I know, I can't believe I made those flowers either. I will definitely want to make another canvas project soon as this was a lot of fun. Thanks again for the great class Katie and to Barb for all the laughs. Have a good weekend all!

Wooden Stocking Banner Project

Last Saturday I took a class at Scrapbookers Cabin in Spruce Grove. The project was to make the wooden stocking banner that is pictured below. Thank you Katie for coming up with such a great project. Besides a lot of painting, sanding, inking and distressing, I enjoyed a lot of laughs with fellow classmates Barb, Adele and Lorraine. The project really was a lot of fun to put together. Laughter really is good for the soul! Thanks for the great day everyone and THANK YOU mom for looking after the kidlets so I could attend the class.

Using up scraps!

As I madly work through Christmas cards and projects, I decided to take a break and create some mini 3 x 3 cards. These are always so fun to make and are quick and easy. I made these using leftover paper scraps from Grace Level II CTMH paper and mystickease. Enjoy and now back to the holiday papercrafting madness (which I have to say I am thoroughly loving).

New Cards!!

Good day everyone! I am very excited to share some new cards I made at a copic markers class at Scrapbooker's Paradise in RedDeer a couple of days ago. It was a class on coloring technique for hair & skin using blending with copic markers. The cards were all designed by Laura Fredrickson with just a few tweaks here and there for my style. I can't wait to practice my newly learned skills and make some more cards . . . perhaps this time with a festive spirit to reflect the upcoming holiday season. Thanks for stopping by.

Certified Copic Designer

I just had to share the news that I am now officially a certified copic designer! Just another passion to add to my continually growing list in the stamping and scrapbooking world. If you don't know what copic markers are, you will have to check them out. They are bar none the best marker out there for blending, shading etc. They are an alcohol based marker and are so fun to use. As others have warned me previously, I shall also warn you . . . "Once you start, it is addictive and hard to stop." Below is a halloween card that I made using copics to color the pumpkin. Enjoy and stay tuned for more artwork to come.
