sending well wishes

Hello there!

I have a super quick share for you this morning, 
a simple neutral get well card.

Nothing sends warm and healing vibes like a pot of tea.


I stamped, masked and heat embossed this gorgeous tea pot from the TAWS set Tea Par-tea.

Hop on over to the TAWS blog for more daily inspiration from the amazing design team.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. :)

merry tags

Hello there!

I have another quick Christmas tag to share with you today.

I used the Avery Elle set, 



I used Gift Tags Dies to cut out the tags, and stamped the Christmas image.
I thought it needed a little something more along the bottom, so I used the vine from Happy Spring.
The "to" and "from" are from the Alice and Friends set.

happy holidiays

Good Morning!

Christmas is just one of my favourite times of year.
It was my Mom's as well, so things were always so well decorated and traditions upheld.

Lately it just seems to come up so darn quickly!

Today I have one of my Christmas cards to share, using the TAWS free-with-$40-purchase set Winter's Butterfly, as the background.


This little elf, from Toy Land, is one of my most favourite Christmas images.
The sentiment is from the Christmas Magic sentiment set.


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

we r family

Good Morning again!

For this post, I thought I would change things up a bit.

My usual MO is to make cards or gift tags, but every so often I decide to tackle something that is, for me, a bit more difficult.......



......A layout!!!





The new sets We R Family, and  We R Family additions, are just so darn perfect for this!

I also used some of the adorable little die cuts from the Finished Frames dies.


           

I'm pretty sure we are going to frame and hang this one. 

Please be sure to head on over to the Avery Elle blog to check out more inspiration by the fabulous Chunyuan.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

you're tea-riffic

Good Morning!

Today is a very special day because it's the day we honour and remember family, friends and strangers who all have something very important in common,
they fought, and continue to fight, for our freedom.

My Grandpa is 94, and fought for the Canadian Military during the second world war.
Although he doesn't talk about it much, he proudly served and still wears his medals with pride.


My card today is SUPER simple, 
but is a great way to tell that special someone how terrific they are!


For this card I used TAWS' new set Tea Par-tea.
This teapot is so fabulous, and makes a bold statement all by its self!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Lest we forget.

happy holidays

Good morning!

I can't believe it's already November and I can't believe that it's only 6 weeks to Christmas!!

I always say "I'll be more organized and on top of things next year". 
Then the next year comes and I'm rushing to get things done, the same as I was the year before.

Oh well, some day?

While getting into the holiday spirit, I created this adorable little card using some older and (some new) Avery Elle sets, as well as their newly released dies,


I just love the edge you get on the paper when you cut these out, there is a larger size panel as well. 
Now unfortunately I mostly covered up that edge with my stamping, but it still adds a bit of texture.


There are so many cute little die cuts that you can use as embellishments. I have actually used a few on a layout I will be showing you next week.

The other sets I used are North Pole, Joy to the World, and Let it Snow.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

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,

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!
