TAWS new release blog hop!

Good Morning!!

There are so many exciting things to tell you about.

First of all it's that fabulous time of month when we get to showcase one of the 3 releasing sets (which will be available tonight at 10pm TAWS time).

Also, this month instead of just one mini available free with a $40 purchase (Starburst) there is a second available (Oinkers) free when you spend $90 total, meaning you would get BOTH!!!

How awesome is that????

Second, as always there is a chance for you to win ALL 3 SETS from this month's release.
All you need to do is hop on over to the TAWS blog for all of the details.

Third, TAWS is offering a super fun promotion from Dec 1 - 12th.

Now that I have shared all of that fun stuff with you, 
on to my card!

I used With Wondering Awe, as well as the oldie-but-goodie Framed.

Now, it's time to hop!!

Please enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by!

Peace on Earth and a goodbye

Good morning!

Today is officially my last post as a Design Team member for the AMAZING Avery Elle.

It was a very hard decision for me to make, but necessary.
Life has gotten quite busy and I just don't have the time to devote to crafting as much as I'd like. 
And to spend more time with my family.

Jamie has been so wonderful to "work" for. She is a FABULOUS woman and artist. Thank You so much Jamie for taking me on!!

I created this using the large Finished Frames die and the super adorable Joy to The World stamp set. 

I cut out some metallic gold paper with the die, then stamped the Peace on Earth stamp in Versamark, heat embossed white and then "coloured in" the inside with the Delicata Gold ink pad.
To get the smudges around the outside I wiped off the excess gold ink in circles, with a baby wipe, to spread it out past the edges.

I really like the effect!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
Please head on over to the Avery Elle blog for some gorgeous inspiration from more members of the design team.

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!
