TAWS November Release Blog Hop

Hello there!!

It's time, time for you to enjoy a bit of blog hopping and potentially win yourself some amazing stamp sets while you are at it.

Head on over to the TAWS blog for the details, you have until 9:00pm TAWS

So three sets are being released, as well as the free with $40 purchase mini,
Winter's Butterflies.

Here's my project.

I really like this little flower image that comes with the Tea Par-tea set, so I created a little background, then covered it with some vellum.

Here's all the links you need for this month's hop.

Good luck and Enjoy!!

TAWS October sneak peek Day 3 - Tea Par-Tea

Good Morning!

It's that time again, when we get to give you sneak peeks of the upcoming sets.

This new set, Tea Par-Tea, is just super sweet and adorable.
There are so many cute images and sentiments, plus it will pair nicely with the older set Breakfast club.

This idea came about because I have been recently trying to go through our family favourites, and write them out.

So I decided to design some in Photoshop, and left just enough room to stamp this cute little cup.

I did have to "selectively" stamp as there wasn't quite enough room to include the entire stamp.

Thanks for stopping by!

season's greetings

Hello, and good day!

I hope the week has gotten off to a good start, so far.

The weather here has been so lovely lately, I'm sort of scared for what might be in the works!!

But I'll take what I can get, it's supposed to be 14 degrees here for Halloween, and I couldn't be happier. 
It will be so nice to not have to put your snowsuit on underneath your costume this year.

Anyway, today I have a card to share that is simple and festive.

I used the new "Season's Greetings" die from Avery Elle.

Now I would have loved to pop this panel up but a) I was too lazy to pop up all of those extra little pieces, and b) I actually think it stands out a bit more not being popped up.

Have a wonderful week!

hey you

Good Morning!!

I'm so excited that it's getting to be Halloween, one of my favourite times of year.

Super fun decorations, creative and interesting costumes and of course CANDY!!

I'm a sucker for candy, what can I say. 
This year I'm even more excited because my son is a bit older and I think will enjoy it this year, he's almost 2.

My husband is a huge fan of Star Wars, and our nickname for our son is Ewok (his name is Ewan) so we've decided to dress him up as Wicket. I can't wait to see how adorable he looks in it!

Anyway, on to my card for today.

I created this card with one of the fabulous feather images from TAWS Tickle Me Happy, and a sentiment from Tri-Me.

Thanks fo stopping by, have a wonderful weekend!

Sometimes you just gotta let go and let out a massive...

My week has definitely been like that.

Cute don't you think?

Pop on over to the TAWS blog for more design team inspiration, and then go get this adorable set!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, have a great weekend.

enjoy the book


I hope you are having a fabulous day.

Today I have a quick project to share with you. I am loving making bookmarks these days, for some unknown reason. Especially since so many people are forgoing paperbacks for the digital age.
But it's just something I can't give up!

This adorable fox is from Avery Elle's new set More Stories, which complements perfectly the older set, Storybook.

I also used Picture It and Bottle It Up for the sentiment and speech bubble.

HEad on over to the Avery Elle blog for more inspiration from the fabulous Chunyuan today as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great day!!

Good Morning!

Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends!
I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful feast with family or friends.
I unfortunately work but my hubby promises a nice plate full of all the fixin's will be waiting for me courtesy of my inlaws.

I can't wait!!

Anyway here is a quick card I made using the TAWS set Tickle Me Happy.
I adore the feathers in this set, they are so much fun to work with.
I have so many ideas.

The sentiment is from an older set, Talk To Me.

Thank so much for stopping by today!

Have a wonderful day.

a floral thanks

Good day!

I hope you are having a wonderful day, I know it's the start of a new week but......maybe?

I am just coming off of a fabulous visit with my bestie, who came out from Ontario to visit and run a Spartan race in Kamloops.
It was a lovely visit and my little man just ADORES her. 

Anyway, on to the card!

This bright, floral thank you card was made using all Avery Elle pigment inks. They are so easy to work with, and the colours are just fantastic.

The flowers and dies are from the new Fabulous Florals stamps and dies. There are just so many different combinations and they also pair nicely with Laurels, and Petals & Stems.

I am just so happy with the way this turned out. :)

This weekend we also had some family photos done, and we just got some sneak peeks and they are fantastic.
I have to share a few.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Have a great week.
