Silver Glass Glitter!

Oh it's so pretty!!!  It's not sparkly, but it is oh so shiney!  I whipped up this card for my wee Sophia for her birthday last week.  I wanted to put it in her lunch bag to surprise her, and she loved it! :)  It was simple, but impressive :)

Stamps:  Perfect Punches - clear mount
Cardstock:  Whisper White
Ink:  Pretty in Pink
Accessories:  Silver Glass Glitter (holiday mini), Glue Pen, Wide Oval Punch

I punched out the Wide Oval first, from the front of the little card - I believe it's 2x3 or so, some old retired pre folded cards with envelopes.  Anyway, I punched out the oval, and then I carefully lined up the clear mount stamp to stamp inside.  Another great reason to LOVE the clear mount stamps! :)  I traced the outline of the oval and the little swirl with the glue pen, then sprinkled with the silver glass glitter! Here's a close up of the oval with glitter :)

Have a happy day!
See ya!

So I'm very much on the ball, and have all my samples made for Christmas card classes, World Card Making Day events, and have the coolest box made for the Christmas Tags class!!  Just waiting on the order from the Holiday Mini to arrive on Wed, so I can get to making the tags to fill the box up! :)

So here's a sneak peek at one of the cards for World Card Making Day....  We'll be making 2 of each card - thank you, birthday man, birthday woman, sympathy and thinking of you.  This is the thank you card :)

Cardstock: Peach Parfait, Early Esspresso, Very Vanilla
Ink:  Peach Parfait, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
Stamps:  Perfect Punches
Accessories: Scalloped Oval Punch, Large Wide Oval Punch, 5/8 grosgrain ribbon

I love it!!  I love the ruffled ribbon, and the colour combo!  I'm not much of an orange person, but this Peach Parfait is growing on me! :D  Here's a close up of the ruffled ribbon.  So much fun, altho not easily mailable :D

A quick reminder of the Scrapbooking Vendor Faire on Saturday at the Allanburg Community Centre!  Admission is only 4$ with 2$ of that going to the Humane Society!  I'll post the flyer in a new post in a few mins :)

Back to school with MDS!

Ok, so I realized today that THIS YEAR'S back to school photos are still on Michael's BlackBerry.  So I went back to 2009 to do them up instead :)  I based my layout on a page done by Heather S.  I LOVE using MDS (My Digital Studio), and forget how fun and easy it is!  I love how many options I have and how quick and NOT messy it is! :)  I love how I get my photos into albums without worry, and even tho I will NEVER give up paper scrapbooking, this is helping me catch up :)

I did some colour matching to get the red from the bean plants behind the kids, and to reflect a little of Zachary's back pack.  I love that feature!!  The colours are mainly Pacific Point, Early Esspresso, Basic Black,  & Whisper White.  I used stamps for "first" and fonts on my computer for "day of school 2009" :)  Now if I could only remember what happened to Sophia's face at the end of summer, we'd be all set!  That's what I get for waiting to scrapbook it :)

So if you are free on September 18th, come on out to the Allanburg Community Centre from 9-3 to check out the scrapbooking vendor faire!  I will be there with my booth, and I'll have an MDS video running while I"m there :)  Come on out and check it out! :)

Have a happy day!
See ya!

Stamping on Cake!!

Yes, you read that right, stamping on CAKE!  Today is my wonderful husband's birthday.  We have an anual Labour Day BBQ at my Aunt and Uncle's house, and sometimes Michael's birthday falls on Labour Day :)

Anyway, b/c of the bbq, I said I would bring dessert.  So baked up a fabulous, from scratch, chocolate cake.  OOOOOhhh it is so good! I got a new recipe for chocolate fudgey filling from my friend Lisa, and it was a HUGE HIT!!!  I mean, my cousin's husband thought it was from a local bakery!!  WHOOT!

So I learned how to do a crumb coat, and I had a crumb free icing.  I then put red shells on the bottom and the top of it.  I wrote "Happy 35th Birthday Mike!" on it, but it still looked... well, boring.   LOL  It's true.  It did.  So I went down to my crafty studio, and came up with a swirly stamp from Christmas Presentation.  I gently pressed the stamp into the icing, which had hardened just enough... and then piped red icing over the impression.  SO EASY!!!  I plan to do this more!! :)

So here's a photo :)

This was my first attempt at this.  My hand was not too steady, and I think I need to adjust the consistency of my icing, or get a different tip.  But overall, I am super pleased with how this turned out!! :D  It tasted fabulous too :D

There's LOTS of cake here, enough for the children to take a piece to school, and for us to have it again after supper tomorrow night!!  Insanity I tell ya... but a nice treat for the kids for the first day back to school!

Have a happy day!
See ya!
