My Latest Project

I just finished this great home decor project. An advent calendar. Yes, I do know Christmas is a long way off, but I just loved this great Kaiser Kraft product when we found it. I decided to make one for each of my kids and two nieces. So here is number 1. This product is available through the store by special order and they come unpainted for you to choose your own color. I just love the way this one turned out. The santa paper in the middle is by Graphic 45.

Copic markers and Stampavie Stamps can be extremely addictive. Please take this warning seriously. I do not kid about things so important. My name is Jackie and I am addicted!!! I am including a link to the Stampavie blog and the challenge that I am entering this card in. It was a challenge, but I think it turned out great!!

New link

On the right side under Favorite Sites, I have added the Stampavie design team blog. I am in love with these stamps and the cards the team makes. They are amazing and are always throwing out different challenges. The best part is that we can now get these stamps through our wholesaler!!!! Yippee!!!

What a fun weekend

We just got back last night from a few days in Calgary for our spring Scrapbook Convention. It was so much fun and we learned some new things and had lots of laughs. Went and saw the movie Bounty Hunter on Friday night and it was pretty funny. We have some new samples in the store that we did with companies such as Bobunny and Fancy Pants. Hopefully we will be having an open house day this month or early next in May and you can take a look. Jackie.

More new stuff and our next challenge

We have gotten in a few orders in the last week and they are all really great. So, if you are in the mood to scrap please give me a call. We got in some of the new BoBunny class kits and paper, as well as many new Tattered Angel Mists.
We have a winner for our March challenge....Michelle. I will be getting her a $5 store credit as well as next months challenge kit. Remember...all you have to do is a simple card or project to be included in the draw. I should have kits ready by the end of the week for anyone interested.
We will also be taking orders for Copic markers which you can check out on youtube. They are really fun to work with to color any stamped image. I was a bit intimidated to begin with, but have found it really easy to get the hang of and it is now a really quick project.

Well, we are back again. CHA is over and we are able to pre-order all of the new and exciting products available. Tim Holtz, Little Yellow Bicycle, 7 Gypsies and Tattered Angels are just a few of the companies that have some great new products coming out. We are also adding new companies to the list as well. One of my favorites is the Copic Sketch Markers which will be available by special order. As well we will be able to carry Stampavie stamps which are great to use with the copic markers. Here is a sample of a card I did using copic markers and a Stampavie stamp. Also I cut out the picture with a spellbinders nestability template.

Happy New Year!!!

Wow!! Another year gone by. Where does the time go? We hope that everyone had a safe and happy holiday. With the New year come many resolutions. I don't set many myself, but I know Jackie and I have talked a lot about keeping the blog active and that is one of my resolutions this year. I would also like to get more of my own projects done this year. With that said here is a photo of a mini album that I started. It is a Fancy pants mixed media book. Looks like it will be interesting to do. I will post more pages as I get it done. If you have set any resolutions, post a comment and let us know. We will have a random draw on January 15 for a small prize. The more comments we get the bigger the prize may get.
Also watch for the next kit challenge to come out. We still need to draw for December' challenge, so if you bought a kit and did something with it, please let us know. We have heard from one person.
