Fire In Our Hearts Skating Layout!

Howdy! Well, we had snow this week, which has just melted away, but it definitely got me in to the mood to create with the Wild Whisper Canadian Winter collection! I'm over on the Wild Whisper Designs Blog today sharing a cute skating layout from when my youngest daughter, Erica, and I used to head to the rink - before she started school. It seems so long ago... It was fun to get these photos scrapped and reminisce!

Snowy Season's Greetings Card!

Hello friends! I'm back today with a snowy Season's Greetings card using embossing powders, brads and stamps from Emerald Creek along with Distress Oxide Sprays and Kraftin' Kimmie Ink. The challenge on the Emerald Creek Blog this month is a wintry one with inspiration from the song Aspenglow by John Denver. I chose to use the Mountain Range stamp and a pretty snowflake stencil, and I think it looks very wintry indeed!

You can find all the details on the Emerald Creek Blog as well as closeups and product links.  I will be demoing these techniques live on the Emerald Creek Facebook Page on Thursday, November 7th @ 10 am MST!! We always have fun giveaways and updates, so be sure to check in. And don't forget to enter your own project on the blog as well for a chance to win an awesome prize pack!

Peace Christmas Decor Tag!

Hello! Well, Christmas is coming in 51 sleeps... yeah my 7 year old made me download the app! I figured I should do some stress-free Christmas crafting before that realization hits that you have 5 teacher gifts and 10 stocking stuffers to make in two days, lol. So, I was at a crop over the weekend and decided to enjoy making a lovely and peaceful tag using some fun supplies from the Southern Ridge Trading Company Shop. I pulled out a Chipboard Tag, 3x3 Star Stencil, Soda Fizz Stencil, Words Of Christmas set and Cedar Trees pack and got crafty! You can visit the SRTC  Blog for a How To Tutorial in case you'd like to see just how I made it.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to head over to the Southern Ridge Trading Company Blog where you can find all the how-to details, closeups and supplies for this festive tag. Have a wonderful week friends!

13 Days Of Halloween - Day 13 - Happy Howlaween Flip Slider & a WINNER!

Wow! I can't believe we are at Day 13!! I hope you've enjoyed following along with this series as much as I've had making all these fun projects. Well, let's get to our last crafty make for the 13 Days Of Halloween with a cute interactive card using Lawn Fawn Happy Howloween stamps and the Mama Elephant Flip Slider die.

This flip slider die is really so easy to put together - be sure to check out the video below where you can see it in action.

I just love all the cute costumes included in the Happy Howlaween stamp set! It's one I've had for a while and am so glad I got to play with it finally.

I used a Your Next Stamp die for the white stitched border layered over the pretty Fall Fling Lawn Fawn Paper as my background.

Copic Markers made quick work of colouring all the adorable images. I just love the peek a boo "Boooo" sentiment!

Inside a fun greeting!

Here's a look at the video where you can see just how it all came together:

For my project I'm sharing a perfectly creepy haunted house! Be sure to scroll down to catch the video to see how this came together 👻 as well as some fun BLOG CANDY!

Tim Holtz Ephemera, Distress Stains, Crayons, Oxides and Oxide Sprays worked awesomely together to add to this dollar store wooden house, taking it from boring to spooky in no time!

I dug into my Halloween stash to find whatever worked! This Simple Stories pumpkin sticker was just the right size for one of these girls to hold. I coloured their outfits with Distress Crayons and I love the vintage look. 

Stickles added in different areas give a sparkly effect - I firmly believe every event needs sparkle!

Emerald Creek Craft Supplies Embossing Powders add neat touches to stamped images as well as random areas that just need a touch of blood. I love how my new Studio Katia pumpkin border stamp fits on the sides of the house. 

Here's a look at the video where you can see all the fun supplies I used and just how it came together-
