Trick or Treat Kit and Beauty Kit

Happy Monday, everyone! Today, I wanted to show you two new kits that I have created for SGD. The first kit is using the Doodlebug "Booville" paper. This line is so cute.

Kit # 1

I did a lot of fussy cutting and then used this new die from Lawn Fawn called "Trick or Treat". L
The Frankenstein was created using my Silhouette and then I added these Shape Sprinkles from Doodlebug called "Eye Candy".

The second kit that I made I called "beauty". These papers are from a Bo Bunny Collection called "Serendipity". I thought that this kit would be good for your garden photos or anything spring-related.

I used the I.O. Stamp called Grunge Wash and the Kaiser Craft Die called "Cut-out Textures. I also used T.H. Distress Oxide Ink "Faded Jeans to outline the papers and for the stamp (mentioned above).

So remember that we have three days of our Pop-Up Shops October 26th - 28th at KCC. It is a great time to get caught up on some of your photo stash.

Have a great week.

Recipe Box Class

Hi everyone and happy Saturday! It's always nice to hit that weekend one day sooner after a short week!

I would like to share with you a few pictures from my upcoming Recipe Box class. I've been busy working away creating this cute little recipe box complete with dividers and recipe cards.

I've used the new BoBunny Family Recipes line of paper as well as the adorable Kaisercraft Lucky Dip Wooden Cooking Embellishments to create this project (seriously...who doesn't need tiny gingerbread men and rolling pins!? Aren't they the cutest thing ever?)

My class will take place on Saturday, November 4th from 9:30am-11:30am at the Four Points Sheraton during our retreat weekend. This class is open to both the retreat attendees as well as anyone else who is interested in joining us! Click here for details on how to sign up!

We will also be doing a recipe exchange during the class, so everyone will go home with some great new recipes in their new recipe box! This would make a fabulous Christmas gift for the cooks in your life too!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Penny Black Christmas card!

Happy Friday! The weather here sure has changed, it was nice to be inside and get crafty!
I picked up this new Penny Black stamp, berry speckles and placed it in my Misti. On a piece of bristol smooth paper, I first stamped it with plain water (just a spritz) and then I coloured it section by section with distress ink markers (forest moss, vintage photo and fired brick). I also went in with a damp brush and spread out the colour a bit. The sentiment is from Tim Holtz, watercolor trees, and stamped with versafine green.  Then I took a stamp from this set and inked it up with forest moss distress ink, wiped off the side and stamped  over the whole panel, very lightly. After I was sure all the ink had dried, I took a clarity brush and some fired brick distress ink to go over the whole image.I found some gold pearl paint powder in my stash and put a bit on craft mat, sprayed it with water and splattered on some gold dots, very hard to see in the picture.

October Calendar Class

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I hope that you have all enjoyed some "family" time this weekend. Today, I wanted to share with you a layout that we will be doing on Saturday, October 28 at 10:30 a.m. This class will be held at the Pop-Up Shop at the Komoka Community Center.

For this class, we will be using the Grunge Stamp by I.O. and Ranger's Distress Oxide Ink "Vintage Photo". For the wood accents, we will be using Creative Expressions Metallic Gilding Polish  "Chocolate Bronze" and Nuvo Embellishment Mousse "Mother of Pearl". It is difficult to see in the photo, but they give a lovely sheen to the wood embellishments.

I used a Memory Box Banner Die to give some interest to one of the papers from Carta Bella's "Hello Fall" line.

Remember that we will be having a 3-day Pop-Up Shop from October 26 to 28 with lots of classes and make and takes. Hope to see you there.

Striped Leaf Cover Die

Good Morning Everyone,

Want to share  with you my card that I will be teaching at one of our Pop Up Shops. I got this technique and card idea by watching Jennifer McGuire video, I love her style. She used the new die from Altenew called Striped Leaf Cover and she used Altenew embossing powders. I used embossing powders from Ranger and Judi Kin. The word Thanks is from MFT that I had. If you want to try this technique please come out and join me, keep watching the SGD web site for more details.

Hope you have a great day and thanks for looking.
