Misti Creative Corners are now in stock!






I have been waiting for these!
One of the hottest items this Spring and Summer

These magnetic corners and positioning pieces combine to provide even more possibilities for precision stamping.
Create angled designs with diagonal positions for perfectly aligned stamping, card layers, tape or embellishments.
Also use as internal bumpers and additional corners for the MISTI. Magnetic corners are used to create off the edge designs, as well as opportunities for precisely layered, spotlighted or telescoped designs with no measuring.
The two corners and two triangles also work in the mini misti. The L-ruler only works with the regular size.



As well we have Color Burst back in stock
don't we all need lots of colour in our lives LOL!

Happy Crafting!

Delicate Silhouettes!


Happy Friday! Life has been taking over my crafting time...I squeezed in this card with the Penny Black set, delicate silhouettes.
I started out with a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock, 3 Tim Holtz oxide inks (peeled paint, faded jeans and cracked pistacho) and the mini stencils from Tim Holtz. They are the perfect size for your card  panels. Put the ink on through the stencils with foam blenders, and spritz lightly with water, dab off excess water with a paper towel. Then I cut up the background in 4 pieces, just random, and stamped the images from the Penny Black set on it, sentiment is also from the same set,
Matted it with a off white panel on a blue card base. As a final touch I added some Neptune Nuvo drops. Images are stamped with Versafine black. Hope you like it!

"Happy Birthday, Canada" Kit

Good morning, everyone! Sometimes in scrapbooking, you may find that you just don't have the paper that you need to complete a layout. Perhaps the theme of your photos is such that it makes paper-shopping difficult to find something to match.

I have found that you can create your own paper in different ways by using stamps, dies, etc. But my favourite way to solve this problem is to use MS Word. For the paper that you will see below, I adjusted the margins to give me a larger space to work with and then selected the Full Justify icon. Next, I went to Design and then Paragraph Spacing. Here I selected No Paragraph Space. I typed the words for "Oh Canada" in the smallest font size possible and then just copied and pasted the words until the page was filled. I have a 12 x 12 Printer but you could do the same thing on a smaller printer. Once I had the page printed out, I used my Silhouette to cut out the shape of the Maple Leaf.

You could use this technique with the words from your Wedding Vows, the words from a favourite Poem or a Children's Rhyme, etc.

Here is the kit. Hope you like it!


The black and white paper was from a MFT 6 x 6 pad called Black and White. The stars are from Bella Blvd. and then I just added some gems and a Journal Card decorated with some ribbon. The "Happy Birthday" stamp is from my favourite set of stamps called "Messages with Flourish" by Hero Arts. I love the versatility of this set and the beautiful font.

Have a great week!

Fairy Tales


Good Morning Everyone,

Want to share with you my other card for this up coming Pop Up Shop.  I am using Stephanie Barnard's Gift Fold It die. I really love this die. I had so much fun making cards with this die. My next project with this die is going to be a scrap booking page. I used the designer paper from Doodle Bug called Fairy Tales. If you sign up for the class you will be able to choose if you would like to do a card for a girl or a boy.





Hope you join me this Friday. You can register for the class here.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Hugs!


Happy Friday! Today my card is simple and very easy to do. When I saw this set from Altenew, I had to have it....by all means, I am Dutch after all,lol.
I messed up on the stamping of the leaves a little bit so I added some colour with markers and cut out the tulips. Sentiment comes with the set. Hope you like it!
