Snarky Coffee Chick!

Hey there! Hope you're having a great weekend. We had a big Saturday a.m. breakfast today with the kids - bacon, pancakes, eggs, fruit, fried potatoes... and of course coffee for the grownups! I love coffee, so as soon as I saw this cute Coffee Chick digital stamp from Gerda Steiner Designs I knew I wanted to use her paired with a sentiment from the Tim Holtz Snarky Small Talk Sticker Book. I grabbed some new Vicki Boutin Wildflower and Honey papers that were included in the latest SCT Sampler Pack and added a few SpiegelMom Scrap Sequins for a fun card - perfect for a coffee lover. (PS You can save 15% at the SpiegelMom Scraps Shop with the code KARLA15)


Be sure to head over to the Gerda Steiner Designs Blog to see closeups and details on this card. You may even want to take a peek at the GSD Shop to see what inspires you to create today!

Watercolour Gift Card and Bag Set!

Hello my friends! I'm so happy to be over on the Wild Whisper Designs blog today to share a card and gift bag set using the beautiful new Pam Bray - Watercolor 12x12 Paper PackFloral 4x6 Stamp Set and Pine Dreams Embossing Powder from the Wild Whisper Shop. This was such a fun gift set to create! I love watercolouring with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, so I started out by using them to colour in the flowers from the stamp set, matching the colours to the lovely Watercolor Papers which are designed by the sweet and talented Pam Bray together with Wild Whisper. I used the DIY Gift Bag Cricut Pattern in Design Space to quickly diecut the gift bag - I love that I was able to showcase both sides of the 12x12 paper with the fold over edge design! I even pulled out my We R Memory Keepers Foil Quill to add a quick Enjoy sentiment to the matching gift tag.

Enjoy The Ride Card!

Hello! I sure hope you're having a great weekend! It is 'Vrooming by' 😉 for us just like these cute pups from the Gerda Steiner Designs Dog On Scooter Vrooming By digital stamp! I do really love how easy it is to resize and print as many 'stamped images' as you'd like with digis. I grabbed some fun Shimelle Sparkle City papers from a previous SCT Sampler Pack to use as a background scene and used the Jillibean Soup Enjoy The Ride sticker from the same pack for my sentiment.

ADVNTR Pocket Page Scrapbooking!

Hello! It's another sunny day here in Calgary, and I wanted to share two more summer layouts. I'm over on the Wild Whisper blog today using the new Road Trip Collection which is so awesome! I love creating pocket pages for events where I have quite a few pictures, like this camping trip we went on a few years ago. The Card Pack was perfect to add to my pages and I used the rest of the collection to kick it up a notch and embellish for fun finished layouts.


The Licence Plate Stamp Set is one of my favourites, and I have had so much fun creating neat titles!

Smile Layout & Card Set!

Hello! Well, I cannot believe it is August already! We've really been enjoying the finally warm weather and the girls have had fun being home from school. We fully intend to enjoy this month before heading back to routines in September! I'm over on the Emerald Creek Craft Supplies blog today with a layout for the new High Hopes Anything Goes challenge this month. I used lots of fun Emerald Creek powders to customize diecuts so they matched the Carta Bella En Vogue papers I used. This is a great way to make your own embellishments! I cut my titles and all the diecuts with my Cricut Maker and had fun getting melty.


I even created two cards using the cut apart journaling card sheet from Carta Bella. I used the Glistening Glass Embossing Powder to create a faux epoxy sticker look on the fussy cut purses and added them to the cards for a pop of dimension.


Thanks so much for stopping by. Be sure to head over to the Emerald Creek Craft Supplies blog to get a full supply list, closeups and details on how to enter the challenge! Remember, it's Anything Goes!!
