High Hopes Numbers Challenge!


Hello all!

Welcome to the last High Hopes stamp challenge of the year!  I've had such a great time this fall as Guest Designer for High Hopes.  What an awesome group of ladies - and beautiful stamps!

This is my creation for the "Numbers Challenge"



I've used this adorable little baby monkey (love her diaper and soother!) to create a 1st birthday card for a little girl!

I've chosen this pretty Prima paper "Jack and Jill" and coloured the little monkey in coordinating colours.  I've used MFT oval lace doily and lace edge dies as well as the number die and stamp set.

I hope you come over and join us in this super fun challenge - for a chance to win some AMAZING High Hopes stamps!  FABULOUS prizes!

Parisian Winter Magnolia


Hello stampers!

I have to confess to a slight obsession/ addiction/ LOVE of all things Magnolia lately!  And along with this I'm trying to develop my style a little and make it more European with the flourishes, muted tones, dimensional flowers, lace, etc.  My friend Andrea and I have been researching this for a while!

I've coloured Tilda for the first time with Prismacolors on top of my Copics - and I am loving this technique!


This is one of the new Christmas Magnolias I ordered and I think she is absolutely gorgeous and a JOY to colour.  And I think she just calls out to be made vintage.  We've discovered these fabulous Cheery Lynn dies - which are so detailed - and stunning!  So the butterflies just had to go on this card.  The beautiful pink roses are from Wild Orchid crafts - who offer such a gorgeous selection.  We found the pearl swirls and the spray at Michaels.

Tilda here has just been waiting for the right moment to appear online - and of course today was released the TOMIC Vintage and Lace challenge!  How perfect!

These STUNNING papers are from Websters Pages by the way - that Andrea gave me (THANK YOU) and fit the theme perfectly.

Sugar Nellie and some snow


Hello Stampers,

Here is my latest Sugar Nellie card I've created for the Sugar Bowl challenge.  I've had this little cutie in my pile for quite some time and she needed some ink!  I've used some gorgeous new Bo Bunny paper I just got.  Don't know about you, but I've been loving this year's holiday collections.  So many blues and browns.  My favourites!



I've stamped her on Copic XPress It with Memento ink and coloured with Copics.  I've accented with Tim Holtz snowflake die, clock die, snowflake embossing folder, and tag.  I've used an MFT edge die and added some twine from The Twinery.  I ran the snowflakes through my Xyron and added some flocking to them, and then used my Viva Decor pearl pen to add a centre.  I've accented the embossed snowflakes with Tim Holtz picket fence die, and I've sprayed the tag with Goosebumps spray.  I used several colours of Smooch pen to add accents here and there, and give the illusion of snow on the little girl and dog.  I've also added Platinum Stickles to the edge.



Have a great weekend!  Happy Stamping!

Teddy bear for baby


Hello stampers,

I don't know about you, but I seem to make a LOT of baby cards.  Maybe it's just the age bracket I'm in?  Or the fact that everyone at work (and Chris's work) knows I make cards and asks me for them.  Either way.  I am always on the hunt for baby stamps and paper.  I don't know why, but they seem very hard to find.  I'm super excited to get the ones I just ordered from Lily of the Valley which are GORGEOUS.



Until now, this Popcorn bear stamp has been my absolute favourite.  I'm not even sure if it's still available as I bought it quite a few months ago.  And I normally avoid animals, because I am "fur-challenged" shall we say, in the Copic department.  I did get some great learning in Suzanne Dean's class this summer - and hopefully I've put it to good use on this card.  This one is for one of Chris's colleagues (I made three in the same night).

But I was SUPER excited to find this paper!  Most paper is gender-specific and it's hard to find gender-neutral paper.  This is the new Kaiser Craft Bonjour paper which I think is gorgeous - and available in my favourite 6x6" pad.  In the back it even has punch out tags!  How perfect is that!

On this card, I've also used twine from The Twinery & a Tim Holtz tag.  And - for the first time - I've added Prismacolor pencils to my Copic colouring!  SO excited about this.  And I'm slowly getting better at it (I think).

Happy stamping!

Lily of the Valley Christmas


This is another one of the gorgeous Lily of the Valley Christmas stamps!  I love Lily of the Valley and these Christmas scenes are adorable - and irresitable to colour up with Copics!

I've tried to use the deepest reds I could - and added some C7 to the shadows as well.  I've added more shadow than usual under the greenery.  I coloured up the kitty to look like my own Kingston.  I thought it only fair!  And you may spot the diamond Stickles on her fur trim.  I've added red Stickles to the holly berries.  And you may not see clearly on the photo, but I've added a thick layer of glaze to the window.



I've actually had this little cutie for a while, so decided she needed to see the light of day!  I've decorated her with some Prima flowers and leaves.

Stamping Bella Girlies

Have you ever had a brand or style of stamp that just doesn't seem to suit you? One that no matter how many tries, you just can't get the hang of? Well, for me it was the Stamping Bellas for the longest time! I don't know why, but I just getting get the knack of them. After one particularly disasterous attempt at colouring a plump woman with large hair, I swore off these stamps completely.
Until now! Anyone who knows me well knows how much I treasure and appreciate my girlfriends! They are true gifts in life and should be appreciated because they can really make the difference between happiness and despair.
Unfortunately I've been really sick lately and am off work for a while, and to someone who is constantly on the go - this has been a tough blow for me. Always an obsessively high achiever, I'm having to take life slowly and rest a lot. Not an easy pill to swallow.
Thank you God for my wonderful friends who surround me! But especially thank you to my beloved Andrea who despite her own physical pains, spent an entire night in the hospital watching over me, and has listened to my worries and stresses without complaint or judgement.
So this card with the girls having some wine is who we SHOULD be - and will be again I'm sure. But for now, we'll be these girls with the coffee and taking it a little slower.
So I've given my Stamping Bellas another chance, and am now LOVING them! I seem to have found a groove, helped by their gorgeous new designs. And these sentiments just call out to me! They are so real life!
For both cards, I've used this brand new 6x6 paper pad "Gathering" from Authentique. I love, love, love the weight, feel, and design of this paper. It is fabulous and I'll be looking for more from this brand.
I'm also trying a more "European" flair to my cards with the dimensional flowers. These are all from Prima who've had some gorgeous new things this fall. If you follow my blog, you'll know of my obsessive love for the Prima Printery line! All of these jewels are also from the Prima line. I LOVE the colours of them.
Of course, I've used some Nesties. Not sure I could make a card without a Spellbinders Nestabilities die quite honestly!
I've stamped my girls on Copic XPress It in Memento, even though I've been experimenting with the Cryogen (still on the fence) and back to some Neenah again. I always come back to my XPress It.
I'll list my Copic colours below. Make sure you stock up now if you are a Copic girl like myself! And don't forget about the refills! Rumour has it prices will be going up in the New Year. Great reason to add to your collection, don't you think?
Happy stamping!

Lily of the Valley Little Bears Snowmen



Hello stampers,

I'm thrilled to finally finish one of my new beautiful Lily of the Valley stamps!  I love all of the LOTV images - they are so sweet.  The Christmas release is no exception - and the little critters are adorable!

I've tried to use as much deep shadowing as I could fit into the small areas, and I've picked up traditional Christmas colours from the My Mind's Eye "Lost & Found Christmas" 6x6.  Here I've used some Prima Printery flowers (one of my favourite releases from this fall - I have a drawer full - so I don't run out)



This was my first time (aside from Suzanne Dean's class) that I've used my Copics on Cryogen paper.  It was definitely different, and I had to be very careful, as you can't use the colourless blender to fix mistakes.  But I do like the result.  I LOVE the shimmer of the paper and the heavier weight of it.

I've combined my love of Distress inks - and inked all the edges in Antique Linen (which I use for almost everything).  I think it suits the look nicely.

I've added a few rhinestones and a little bit of diamond Stickles on the snow.


Very handy for me, the sentiment was already on the paper!  I'm entering this card into the following challenges:



Stamp:  Lily of the Valley Little Bears Snowmen
Paper:  My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Christmas, Copic XPress It, Stampin' Up cardstock
Accessories:  Spellbinders Nestabilities, Prima flowers, jewels

High Hopes Snowflake Challenge

Hello stampers!

With snowflakes teasing us almost every day here in London, High Hopes is challenging you all to get our your paper snowflakes!

My gorgeous Tim Holtz snowflakes were anxious to escape their drawer and come out to play.

They've joined this gorgeous little High Hopes Santa (Santa's List) from the fabulous new 2011 Christmas release in my attempt to merge "cutesy Santa" with "antiquey distress".


I've stamped Santa on Copic XPress It with Memento ink and coloured him with Copics.  I've punched him with an oval Nestie and mounted him on another oval paper.  I've used the gorgeous new Christmas paper 6x6 from My Mind's Eye.  Tim Holtz has a great choice of snowflakes out this year and I've used his edge die and his snowflake dies.  I used my Xyron to adhere the snowflakes.  I've distressed everything within an inch of it's life here.  I've used Glimmer mist, distress inks, and glitter.  He took a while to dry!

Come and join in the fun - create with snowflakes & High Hopes and enter to win some GORGEOUS new stamps!

Challenge # 122 is open for two weeks starting today!

Tilda in Vriksha Asana pose

Go here to win my blog candy!

I have been dying to ink up this gorgeous stamp.  I love yoga (when I manage to get myself there) and I ordered this image from Magnolia as soon as it came out.  But it did sit in my "drawer of good intentions (see here for BLOG CANDY)" for quite a while sadly.

Be sad no more little Tilda!



I have lovingly coloured her in some of my favourite Copic tones of RV90's and C's.  I could have coloured her all day.  These colours just blend so beautifully!

Christmas Copics

Go here to win my blog candy!

Hello stampers!

I just have to say that I am so enjoying teaching these classes at SGD. Thank you to all of you who I've met so far - and I sincerely apologize if I do not remember names - I have a memory like a sieve! It has been such a pleasure and I'm loving every minute. It really is a different way to craft and makes me think quite differently when I create my cards. What I love the most though is having a purpose (and ok, deadline) to craft.

Obviously, my latest classes have been done with a Christmas theme. My personal challenge every year is to find a way to update the old staid Christmas colours and themes. And when I find something that helps me in this quest, it is a thrill!

This month I discovered two great things
Jillybean Soup Christmas Eve Chowder 6x6 paper pad - and the
new releases by Impression Obsession stamps.

I love the paper with the little penguins - and had to find a way to use them by themselves as a key component of the card.

This image is so cute - and when you have so much white space (i.e. snow and snowman) it is really pretty quick to colour. I've accented with some Stickles of course. And I have used my beloved Nesties as I almost always do. Note the pearls done with the Viva Decor Pearl Pen in ice white - one of my favourite discoveries this year. I love self-adhesive pearls, but quite honestly my gel nails are a liability when it comes to crafting, and this makes life SO much easier!
Here's a close-up of the stamped image so you can see the colouring. Not easy to get much dimension in small spaces, but I've given it a try - on his hat and scarf.
This image I also fell in love with. I love the REAL Christmas and the fact that it is about the real meaning of Christmas, not just Santa Claus and the Disney stuff. Did you know that the image of Santa as we know was actually a creation of Coca Cola? No kidding!
Anyway - I tried to bring in some "non-traditional" Christmas colours here and some of my faves - browns and blues. I've also used some red Stickles to add a bit of punch. And the pearl pen again as above (those darned gel nails). It's hard to see here, but I've used another super cool product to give my penguins little googlie eyes! It's the Viva Decor Glass effects, which I normally use to put dew drops on flowers.

Here's a close-up of the colouring. A little tip for you - don't be intimidated by what looks like a very detailed stamp. You can definitely always colour right over the details. It is much easier than you think. You don't have to colour every tiny little detail separately for it to look great.

If I haven't seen you at a class yet, I hope to see you soon!
Happy Stamping!

BLOG CANDY & The drawer of good intentions

Raise your hand if you can relate.

- You are catching up on your blog reader and you see a gorgeous new release of images that you just HAVE to have (all of them - right now - immediately).  Never mind that Halloween is over and you'll never look at that pumpkin again until next year - at which time you'lll probably have completely forgotten it or no longer care....

- You are desperately waiting for that exact time of 11:04 pm when your favourite stamp company has it's new release so that you can race into the store and quickly buy up every image or die you can get your hands on - because it is an INVESTMENT really and how can you not?  And you will really and truly use all of these gorgeous versatile stamps every day!  Because I use the term "abundance" in every single card I make! 

- There is a limited edition ink colour that you HAVE TO HAVE.  After all - it is LIMITED EDITION!  Seriously!  How can you not have it?  Who cares if it's a garish shade of fluorescent gray?  It is a NEW NEUTRAL ladies - come on!  And it is an INVESTMENT piece because it is designer - and did I mention LIMITED EDITION?  Actually, I'd better get three - because really - they might dry out and then what will I do?

- omg - you are KIDDING - I can "click now" to add all 74 stunning new images into my shopping basket!  And this will save me not only $0.34 (never mind an extra $45 of shipping - it is an INVESTMENT).  Not to mention save my hand of the additional 73 clicks.  And - even if there are only 3 images I want - the other 71 gorgeous flying unicorn with pixie wings and no faces because they are too perfect for noses - are really (need I say it?  LIMITED EDITION!).  And yes, you got it - an INVESTMENT.  For sure.

OK - I could go on - really I could.  But I'm sure you've been there (or are there, like right this minute - stop, do not click!)  Right?

So - on with my story.  This - (drumroll please) - is the craft space formerly known as the drawer of good intentions:


This started out as the place where I emptied all those gorgeous brown packages that came in the mail (or my friend Andrea's mail) because really - we need TWO of everything.  It would be so silly to have to walk 5 minutes to actually get one of these investment pieces because there might be a midnight stamping emergency!  And then what would I do?

Well, I'm sure you can all see what the result is.  I no longer have any idea what is in there.  And my grand plans of specific cards for specific events and friend's graduating from Masters in Wound Care and my neighbor's cat's hysterectomy - and not to mention Great Uncle Fester - who (praise the Lord) finally passed gas and will not be needing that surgery.  I had these PLANS to stamp - really they were well intentioned....

Anyway - I've been inspired by my friend Sheila - who is one of the most generous and lovely (although slightly potty mouthed - you have to watch out for that one, really) crafting friends I know.  She was written up in our local paper this week - you have to read this - it truly is a wonderful article about a wonderful woman truly Paying it Forward and not just making the motions.

Sheila Mankulich shows crafts her customers have made in exchange for donating food items for the London Food Bank at her scrapbooking store, Scrappin Great Deals, in Kilworth on Tuesday November 8th, 2011. Mankulich has collected food in lieu of fees for crafting sessions, and has collected over 300 pounds so far. (CRAIG GLOVER, The London Free Press"
For the full article click here!
So I'm going to share with you some of my treasures - and offer up some BLOG CANDY - once I hit 100 followers to my blog!  Here is an array of goodies from my "formerly known as the drawer of good intentions" (Scor-Pal not included).



Here's what I'd love you to do:

1.  Please follow my blog (I'm lonely and I need friends, truly, or at least fellow addicts)
2.  Please share with me your story of crazy and rash crafty purchase gone wrong
3.  Suggest a new name for my "formerly known as the drawer of good intentions"
4.  Please - share my story!

Thanks girlies!
Happy stamping - and more importantly - INVESTING!

MFT, Copics, and Smooch Spritz

Go here to win my blog candy!

Happy November everyone!

I just got home today from a Wound Care conference in Ottawa, so sadly I've had no crafty time this week. So sad :-( I hope to get back into the groove this week as I think that was my last work trip for the year (fingers crossed).


This is a card I made for a colleague last week. I picked one of my yet uninked MFT stamps (I LOVE these cute little Innocence girls!) - and by the way - you HAVE to check out this month's release if you are an MFT fan. Oh Em Gee!!!!

I've stamped her with Memento on Xpress It. Now, I have been a faithful fan of the XPress It since it's release, however, thanks to a great lesson with Melanie Holtz the other week, I have discovered that Neeneh does in fact have some great advantages, especially for the really deep shadows that I like, and dark reds, in that it doesn't get so sticky. Great to learn! Also, my stampin' BFF Andrea, who's now on Susanne Dean's design team (so super proud of her!!!) has introduced me to the Cryogen paper which I had the chance to try at Susanne's workshop this summer - and I do really like it's shimmer effect for certain things. So I guess I will be stocking multiple papers in my supply!

I've used this really cute 6x6 paper pad "Happy Go Lucky" which has some of my favourite colours in it. And so I got to use my RV90's which I've been playing with recently. I just coloured my fave Yoga Magnolia Tilda at Andrea's house the other weekend in the RV90's and I'm so pleased with how that came out - I'll be sharing soon! And I just love anything at all with some turquoise or teal in it.

For once, a very rare thing for me, I've even decorated the interior of the card! I have discovered that I like using a softly patterned coordinating paper from my 6x6 pad to do the inside and then stamping a sentiment on it. Although more and more, I use my own sentiment (I bought a great book last month) and I just print it on my printer. Sometimes you need something pretty specific. i.e. There aren't a lot of "Congratulations on Graduating with your Masters in Wound Care" stamps.
I even used some of my very precious Prima Printery series flowers on this card! I fell so much in love with that particular line, that I now have a drawer full of all the accessories, so I won't run out. Slightly obsessive, I know - but I'm sure all of you fellow crafters can relate??
As I almost always do, I've used a Nestie to punch out my image. And then I inked the edges while still in the die. If you take one of my Copic classes at SGD you're virtually guaranteed to learn this technique, as it is one of my trademarks for sure!
I also picked up some of the new Smooch Spritz sprays the last time I was at SGD, and I've used it here. I really like the effect! I was in the store and saw women buying one of each colour - so OF COURSE - I had to have some! I do like the bottle a lot - it's glass and it's skinny. I stand it right in between my pens. SO handy.
In case you saw the photos of my new Copic case disaster by the way, I'm happy to share that I am now fully in love with it!! It's such a great traveler. I spent a whole evening happily colouring on Andrea's couch the other week, Ott light perched beside me, wine in hand, enjoying an awesome show she's introduced me to (Bedlam - it's British and it's spooky - check it out!). And clean up is so quick. No more careful slotting of markers into tiny holes. FANTASTIC!
Happy week and Happy stamping!
