Sharing some exciting news and Occasions Catalog peeks





Hi all,

I don't have a card to share with you today (I will have some tomorrow, I need to edit them), but I wanted to share some exciting news.
I was selected to be on the first ever design team for the Chameleon Pens! 
Check out the blog post on their blog! --> HERE


And now onto the Occasions Catalog peeks (and SAB). I got my pre-order on Monday so here are some peeks at what I got and couple creations (not really good pictures because they were taking with my phone)

Enjoy!

And if you are too quick to  call SU! to report me for showing pictures of products, please read first the Demo Manual (we are allowed to show pictures of the actual products!)

Creation Station - Non-traditional Project Life

                                                       TEA AND COFFEE POT CARDS



Hi all,
And welcome back. Today I am back with my Creation Station projects. This week we don't really have a blog hop, as it's only me and Kathy, so from here head to her blog to see her project for this week. Our goal this week was to use Project Life collection from the Holiday Mini/Holiday Supplement. So, that is what I did and I used it in non traditional way. I made two cards using couple cards from the Hello December collection cards and add on kit along with the coordinating stamp set.
I really like how they turned out and how easy they were to make. 

The first one was little bit more involved as it includes some heat embossing, but other than that it's pretty simple ;) because I am trying to keep my life simple, too. So, expect a lot of clean and simple creations from me in the upcoming months ;)

Now head to Kathy's blog to see her wonderful work

Endless Wishes Shaker Card

                                                       TEA AND COFFEE POT CARDS

Hi all,

It's me again. Can you believe that? On Wednesday night I went to  the Occasions Catalog kick-off and had so much fun and on top of that I won Prize Patrol, new Pink Pirouette Blendabilities and a stamp set (single stamp) from the new Occasions catalog, plus at the end we all got a stamp set from the new catalog. So much fun! My wish list is HUGE, I mean really HUGE! 

Here are some project sneaks from the Occasions mini from last night and then there is another card I made for this month's Creative Crew challenges on Splitcoast Stampers site. I made a shaker card again using one of my favorite sets Endless Wishes and All if calm dsp. Plus I used some Silver Foil sheet for the On Film framelit cut to make the window.  The sentiment is embossed with silver embossing powder!

Hi all,

Don't fall off your chairs, I am finally posting something on my blog.  I can't believe that 2 weeks have passed by since I last posted. Yes, it's been busy two weeks, preparing for my daughter's birthday party this Saturday, Thanksgiving, my Creativity by Mail program etc. 

Today I have project that I made for this months Creative Crew challenges, which is to use non traditional colors for Holiday card. So I used one of my favorite sets Endless wishes and used the following color combination: Strawberry slush, Pool Party and Rich Razzleberry.
The smaller snowflakes (razzleberry and strawberry) are embossed with Iridescent ice embossing powder.

I have more projects for you, I just need to find the energy and time to post them.

Been a while

                                                       TEA AND COFFEE POT CARDS

Hi all,

I know I have been absent for a while. Things have been crazy. I haven't had time to create anything the past few weeks. I just found in my draft posts this  card that I made while back while I was playing with my Faber Castell Polychromos Color Pencils

But for the rest of this year my posts will be sparse, especially as the holidays are approaching. As well I won't be offering classes by mail for the remainder of the year, besides the regular Creativity by Mail program. One of the reasons is that with my last class USPS proved to not be reliable with the last kits by mail I sent. Some got lost, some got delivered to wrong addresses, and majority of them were delivered way too late. So, since the holiday season is starting and people are mailing more, we'll just taking a break from mailing anything.

As well, I have been busy with my kids. Last week hubby was out of town and  I was alone with the girls, so we did a lot of fun stuff, which left me with no time to create. And my almost 3yr old is now getting into crafting etc, so it's fun to make stuff with her. And the time spent with her is so special.
On Saturday after the gym I took her to Paper Source and she picked couple stamps she liked and couple packs of notecards (pink and purple of course and yellow), so we'll be making tonight cards for her teachers, whom she loves. 

As well, besides all the Holiday craziness, we are preparing for the arrival of baby C in early February.

Creative Crew November Projects

                                                                            TEA AND COFFEE POT CARDS

Hi all and happy Sunday! 
Sorry I didn't post yesterday. The weekend was just so crazy. And I didn't get a chance to post my Creation Station project. I was so tired when we got home last night that I went to bed at 10.30pm shortly after the kiddos went to bed. This preggo lady was TIRED! 

So, today I am sharing the Creative Crew projects, and the focus was Christmas. I used bunch of goodies from the Holiday Mini catalog.

Blended Bloom box

                                                                              TEA AND COFFEE POT CARDS


Hi all and Happy Friday and Happy Halloween.
We had fun tonight with the  kids going Trick or Treat-ing. It was our first time, and my older daughter loved it, she loved getting so much candy. But what surprised me, first she would get candy for her little sister and then for herself. She is growing so fast! 

Anyway....today I have a little box to share that I decorated using the Blended Bloom set, that I colored with the Blendabilities and layered it together. The sentiment is from Good Greetings set that is a promotional set during October for hosting workshop of $300+.

I will be back tomorrow with my Creative Crew creations for November. ;) And then on Sunday it's the Creation Station blog hop, so it's a busy weekend.

Hello Darling meets Gold Soiree

                                                          TEA AND COFFEE POT CARDS

Hi all and Happy Monday! 
I know I am a slacker. I was busy working on the Creativity by Mail Projects that I didn't get around posting on my blog. 
Today I have another 3-d project (which is very simple). I made this little gift bag using the Gold Soiree dsp. Then decorated it using the Hello Darling set, some gold ribbon and gold sequin trim. 
Pretty simple. For the bag I used one of the We R Memory keepers punch boards ( the one that is for bags- not sold through SU!) 
The Hello Darling sentiment and part of the "flower" are embossed using Gold embossing powder. 

Note: Ornament and Snow-globe kits are available HERE.
Last day to pre-order your kits is tomorrow - October 28th and they will ship around October 31st.
