Although I haven't been able to follow the "12 Days" blog for the last 10 days, I am glad to see that lots of other people have taken time from their busy schedules to appreciate you gals at SGD as much as I do! We are buried in a winter wonderland here in my part of BC... what a special treat that is, because we are just as likely to have been barbequing our turkey on Christmas Day...at least that is what my brother on the prairies always kids me about in our annual Christmas phone chat. Merry Christmas and have a safe and comforting time with your families.

Merry Christmas to everyone! I could really use the help of the "Wrapping Fairy." If you know where I could find her please pass along my name to her! If she does not show up you can find me in the basement with a glass of rum and eggnog and "Christmas Vacation" playing on the tv! Have a great holiday everyone and be safe!

Merry Christmas Everyone! The house is very quickly becoming decorated for Christmas & I have just a couple more items to bake & a few gifts to wrap. Youngest son is safely home from university, hurray & am planning the menu for the oldest son's birthday dinner on Sunday.Kyle turns 24, so the creative Mom has just found 24 different beer bottles to put candles in down the middle of the table. What a center piece it'll be. Cheers to all the wonderful ladies at SGD. Have a wonderful Christmas & the best for 2013. Deb

Feeling sad about yesterday's tragedy. Played Christmas music in the car today when I went to a friend's Bead for Life party. It was very uplifting to see what these Ugandan women are doing to make their lives better. Give your loved ones a hug today!

Poinsettia Tag

Hi everyone!

I have a Christmas tag to share today using dies from Sizzix.


I die cut my tag with a Sizzix Movers & Shapers Tag & Bookplate die, stamped  with Stampers Anonymous ( CMS125 Mixed Media), sponged and then glittered it up.

I die cut my flower parts from patterned paper (Authentique Peaceful) with Sizzix Bigz Tattered Poinsettia and sponged & glittered.


On the center flower I added some Viva Decor Pearl Pen (Brown) to the center and then added glitter to the wet paint.


Assemble flower (I used foam tape between the layers)


Adhere lace trim. Die cut the tag (Sizzix Bigz Tiny tags & Tabs), stamp phrase and add ribbon.


All done!



Happy Holidays!

Cool Tools - cordless glue gun

Hello Stampers!

If you've ever taken a class with me - you will know this tool!  I LOVE my cordless glue gun and bring it to every class.

I'm sure you've had a glue gun at some point in time - and maybe it's like my old one now - in your garage or basement collecting dust?  They were awkward, the cord knocked things off your desk, they got too hot, burned your fingers.  YUCK.

This is the cadillac of glue guns!  It takes 4 'AA' batteries and has a little light that shines on your work.  When the light dims, change the batteries.  Best of all - NO CORD!  It doesn't get too hot, doesn't burn my fingers, and doesn't drip.  Genius!

Here's a great little video showing you the wonders of the I-Bond!



Happy Stamping!

Inkssentials Memory Glass

Good Morning Everyone,



Going to share a sneak peak of a project we are going to do for this Wonderful Wednesdays. It is a stamping and heat embossing project but it is not a card. We are going to be using Inkssentials Memory Glass to make a piece of jewellery.




Please come out and join me this Wonderful Wednesday.
Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Paper Smooches Copic Fun!


Wanted to share a fun 'Metallic Inspired' card I made recently. I used the adorable Paper Smooches set called Warm Hearts and coloured my trees red, gold, silver and copper. I then went KA-RAZAY with Gold! I used the new MFT beautiful bows die-namics to create my super awesome bow beside my image. Fun Fact- did you know that you can actually make bows of 2 different sizes with these dies? I didn't but it sure did justify me needing it when I did. **Ahem Anja** you need it too.

I used one of last year's MME 6x6 paper pads with their matching stickers for my sentiment. And that cute gold snowflake border at the bottom..that's the Memory Box Frostyville border die. Love it! I used to hate using such intricate dies as they always got stuck in the die and I ripped them when trying to extract them. Thankfully I got a tip from my good friend Anja..Use the Cheery Lynn metal adapter plates and a sheet of waxed or parchment paper when using the die. It will literally fall out when you bang it against something. And she was right- totally works!

I hope you like my 'Metallic' Christmas Card and hope you get some crafty time in today as well!

Cheers- Andrea

A little bit of both....

  
Happy Friday! After all the fun we had on Saturday with the Anniversary party, I strolled through the store with Rose.....well, I can tell you, many new things ended up in my craft room. I can't believe that I go away for a little bit, come back and bang...lots of new things. Luckily I had some time to play too....so another card for Toonie Tuesday, December 11 at 2 PM. Love to combine some cute stuff with the elegant things, those bunnies just had to be under the trees, and searching for the right ribbon, I found this die for a bow from Cheery Lynn. Hope you have a chance to join us, on Tuesday, December 11 at 2 PM, bring a toonie and a basic tool kit and we will make this card! Have a great day, Anja

ANNIVERSARY EVENT RE-CAP!!

THANK YOU TO THE BEST CUSTOMERS EVER!! 

We celebrated our 4th Anniversary on Saturday and we think it was the best event yet!!  Have a look at the line up we had on Saturday morning; the ladies started lining up well before 9am, more than an hour before we opened our doors!  


We were truly overwhelmed by the response, the enthusiasm, and the support you have all given us not just this past weekend, but over the years.  
WOW do we LOVE this craft, and it is our customers that keep us going!!  
WE APPRECIATE EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU!! 

THANK YOU!!

Amazingly, we ran out of our supplies for our Mini-Album shortly before 10:30am!!  Our sincere apologies to those who came out to our event and were unable to do the make n take. We prepped for 60 people thinking that was more than enough but unfortunately we disappointed at least 30 more people.  We do thank you for making the trip, staying for the door prizes, the 20% off all regular priced items, and of course, for the goody table! Did I mention there was CAKE?!?


Here is our lovely Scrappin' Sheila cutting the cake: 


And of course, lets share the entire album, the cover by JUDY:

 

ANJA's:
 

ROSE's:


and KIM's:


The DIVAS did an amazing job don't you think?!  The hours of prep time getting everything designed and cut out so things could go as smoothly as possible!  Everyone was so patient waiting for their turns at the tables, such a fun atmosphere!!!  Truly inspirational!!  

You know that Scrappin' Great Deals hosts many free make n takes, smaller ones every week and large events such as our Anniversary.  We always request that attendees bring donations for the London Food Bank.  Sheila has never hid the fact that this is a charity near and dear to her heart.  Growing up, her family was one in need and depended on the kindness of strangers.  The Christmas season is often a hard time for families and SGD's set a goal to hopefully reach 1000lbs of food donated before Christmas.  We think we did it in ONE DAY!!!   
Thank you so much for your generosity!!!  


Here are the BOXES and BOXES of food that was donated!!  A simply fantastic young man, Quinn, volunteered his time while his Grandma was participating in the make n take, to pack up all the donated items.  A HUGE thank you to Quinn!!  

 So that is about it, we are off to plan the next event! (We'll be prepping for at least 150 people this time!!) One last HUGE: 

THANK YOU!!!!
