Snail Mail!

Hello! Well things have been moving fast over the summer here with the kids out of school, but obviously slow on my blog! We've been doing lots of summer activities around our neighborhood and even went camping this past week. I really enjoyed taking to the time to create this cute snail mail card using the super sweet Snail Mail Digital Stamp from Gerda Steiner Designs.


I coloured the image with Copic Markers and added some white gel pen highlights. I used a nesting heart die from Sizzix that adds pierced holes around the edge. I just love sitting and stitching and this was so easy and relaxing! I used a Tim Holtz envelope die from the Valentine Sidekick set and added some Glossy Accents to the hearts. A few sequins scattered around the shaped card add just a little more bling!


Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure to head over to the Gerda Steiner Design Blog to see all the details and get lots of inspiration. You can find lots of fun stamps - digi and clear - in the shop. Hope you're having a great summer and having a little time to create as well!

Road Trip Layout with NEW Wild Whisper Release!

Hello! I hope you've all been having a lovely summer! We were actually just camping this week and went to the same campground - Little Bow- here in Alberta, that I'm featuring on the layout for Wild Whisper this week using the brand new release Road Trip. I just love this collection! The licence plate stamp is one of my fav pieces - I love creating fun titles with it! Totally reminds me of the old game show Bumper Stumpers, lol!

Family Photo Layout!

This is the fourth layout I've done using this kit and I still have so much more left over that I can play with!

Be Wild & Free Layout!

Hello and Happy Canada Day to my Canadian friends!! We are celebrating today with a BBQ and some fun festivities put on by the city. I'm also over on the Scrap Shotz Blog today sharing a layout using the Scrap Shotz June 2019 Scrapbook Kit and available Add-Ons featuring the Heidi Swapp Wolf Pack Collection. I love the nature feel of this collection - I just want to get outside when I see it! I have some more photos of my girls at a local park and this time I really wanted to incorporate the purples in the photos, so I used some Distress Oxides and a Studio Katia stencil to bring the colour out.


Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to head over to the Scrap Shotz Blog to see my step by step process and closeups. If you're celebrating this week, I hope you have a wonderful time!!
