Color Throwdown 490

It’s pastels for Color Throwdown 490: I felt like making a girly card: I used a craftsmart stamp and die set from Michaels and craftsmart inks. There’s a bit of glitter on the bubbles to help them stand out. I added some to the starfish in her hair as well, but after I took photos…

mermaid cards and tags

Last year Michaels came out with cute mermaid stuff and I had to pick up the stickers and stamps. Mermaids seem to be even more “on trend” currently than they were when I got them! What little girl isn’t obsessed with these beauties of the sea at some point? I am still in love with…

craft fair season 2017

December has begun and I feel like I can breathe again. Last Saturday was my final craft fair of the year. Three weekends in a row I peddled my wares and am already looking forward to next year. BTW, this blog post has been sitting partially written since Monday so I just need to write…

cards for a 32nd birthday

Just a quick share of a couple of cards. I was asked to make birthday cards a while ago for a 32nd birthday… my own! I am a big fan of the bright neon pink and the way the stenciled bunting came out. I didn’t have my Halloween crafting supplies on hand otherwise they probably…

successful sommelier celebration

My upstairs neighbour is a restaurateur. A few months back his sommelier won best in the city, which is a pretty big deal! He asked me to make a card for her, and here is what I came up with: I die cut cork for the award ribbon. And the metallic circles are like champagne…

new baby card trio

I made a few cards to congratulate new parents. They turned out kinda cute so I wanted to share them with you. I didn’t realise how crooked this was… Cute and simple, like a baby 😀 The pink and blue ones are still available here. Thanks for stopping by!

Father’s Day 2017 card round up

Chances are you’ve got one, so it’s one of those days that mean a lot to many people! I loved the chance to work with more masculine colours and themes. Not all of these made it in to my Instagram feed, so if you follow me there some of these will be new to you….

graduation cards

Here are the graduation cards I made for the fair I was at this past weekend: They are all simple, but kinda cute. The gold stripes are just stenciled with gold ink, and check out that adorable grad cap on the zero! Jillibean Soup makes shaker cards pretty easy! I went with a silver theme….

Champlain Heights summer fair 2017

I had a wonderful day at the Champlain Heights Community Centre summer fair. I got there nice and early to set up, which I managed to do on my own with time to spare. Luckily I planned well enough the night before that I remembered everything I needed. I was lucky enough to have a…

belated Valentine’s Day 2017

Hello! I just wanted to do a post about the Valentine’s Day cards I made this year. I forgot earlier in the month I had a lot of stuff left over from last year so I tried to use more embellishments than I usually do. These are my favourites:

Holiday Craft Fair – Kensington Community Center 2016

I had the pleasure of participating in a local community centre craft fair last weekend, and I had a great time. This was a fun and well-run event with tons of people perusing the wares. From the regular and informative emails from the coordinator to the ease of paying my fee to everything being ready…
