Four You Case

Happy Saturday!

Off to the spa this morning so I'll be brief!

Today's share is another CASE from Debra Currier at - you should check out her work - it really is awesome!  This is another 99.9% CASE … the ONLY change I made was that I used Garden Green card stock for the leaves rather than Gumball Green that she used … and that's only because Gumball Green retires in 2 days *sniff*.  Here is her/my card:
LOVE it!  SO bright and cheery - just makes me smile!

The circle was cut out of the toplayer sung my 2 1/2" circle punch.  The Daffodil Delight layer was run through the embossing folder that was FREE during SAB (and just MAY be in the new catalogue for sale!  … just mayyybeeee ….).  The flower was stamped with the Petite Petals in Tangerine Tango and punched out with the coordinating punch.  The leaves are from the Buird Builder punch.  The sentiment is from "Four You" and there is a candy dot in the centre of the flower.  I flagged the end of a 3/4" x 3 1/2" strip of cs with my paper snips and attached it all with dimensionals and/or glue dots.  A great, WOW card that would bring a smile to anyone who got it in the mail!

Right!  I'm off to get pretty toes!  Until next time, have a stampy day!

Peaceful Petals Case

Happy Friday!

The rain is supposed to be done and we are told it will be mid-20's through until Sunday - perfect!  I'm starting the weekend off by having some friends over tonight for wine, snacks and cards - were using the happenings card kits )I'll be making three teacher's gifts out of the 15 cards!).  Saturday I'm off for a pedi with my bestie … and Sunday is my New Catalogue Open House - friends are dropping in to grab their new catalogues and squeal at all the yummy new products with me!  My idea of a grey weekend!

Today I'm sharing one of the cards we made at my party last weekend. I can't take any credit for it - it's 100% CASEd from Debra Currier over at  It's a quick card that I found really striking:

What I like about it is that it is clean and simple but has interest from texture and dimension.  Perfect!  We used the Peaceful Petals stamp set, stamped in Black Staz-on.  We then coloured it using Raspberry Ripple and a blender pen, Daffodil Delight and Pistachio Pudding markers.  After using the blender pen we then used the actual Raspberry Ripple MARKER to accent the flowers.  The sentiment was stamped in Staz-on (from Delightful Dozen) and 3 minim brads were added for a little pizzazz.  Oh!  the layer, after being coloured, was run through the Big Shot and the Fancy Fan embossing folder and then popped up on dimensionals.  Quick, easy and awesome!

That's it for today!  Have a stampy Friday!

Soho Subway Scraps

Happy Thursday!

Day 4 of rainy, dreary weather … and I love it!  This has been SUCH a great, relaxing week I would love if it was like this every week!  I mean really … it's not like I'd be outside if it were nice … the laundry/dishes/chores don't get done if I'm sitting outside reading a magazine!  … so I'd perfer, since I have to be inside most of the time anyway, that it be yucky OUTside!  Plus when it's nice out I feel I SHOULD be outside … given that we can only DO that for 5 months of the year!  So yep - let it rain Monday-Friday each week.  I get a clean house, completed chores and a wee bit of crafting in.  My idea of awesome!

So today I'm sharing a card I was planning to use for my party/workshop last week …but I figured it would be too fiddly for new stampers.  It's not HARD but fiddly … so it didn't make the cut. I still like it, though … check it out:
It's actually a CASE of a card made by Sandy over at .  Here is her card:
I find hers really striking … and a great way to use up scraps of DSP .. of which I have a BUCKET full!

For my card I used Very Vanilla cs for the base and layer.  I punched out circles with my 1 1/4" circle punch.  The Soho Subway DSP were punched out with the 1 3/8" circle punch and taped down before placing the layer on top (popped up with dimensionals).  The fiddly part was getting the DSP circles in just the right spot behind the "window" circles.  Oh … and I used my new Project Life corner rounder on the layer.  The sentiment is from "Blue Ribbon" stamp set, stamped in Early Espresso and punched out with the 13/8" circle punch).

That's it!  A great "masculine" card - no fluff or bling!

Pop in again to see some more projects.  Until then - have a stampy day!

2014 - 2015 In Color Colors

Happy Wednesday!

Another day of not-much-going-on-around-here … and I'm loving it!  More time to blog *lol*

I spent some time this weekend playing in my craft room. I needed to come up with my treats for the club-gal bags.  My original plan was to make a card front using the new Blendabilities markers.  They are FUN!  Alas, after colouring about 10 flowers the lightest marker went dry :(  Stampin' Up! ALWAYS makes *it* right and a new one is on it's way to me but too late for the bags … so I had to move on to Plan B.  Let me introduce you to the 2014-2015 In Color Colors instead!
Ta Da!  Let's see if I can remember the names … Mossy Meadow, Lost Lagoon (nice colour but weird name in my opinion!), Hello Honey, Tangelo something-or-other, and Blackerry Bliss (yummy!!!!!) … something like those, anyway!  I used a few new products on this little cute - the new small heart punch (comes in a pack of 3 punches and replaces the small heart from the 2013-2014 catalogue … looks very similar but is really a little chubbier than the old one … I like this one better!) and the new Project Life corner rounder (love it too!).

Let's take a peek at how I mass produced them, shall we?  OK!  First I cut all the layers and rounded the corners.  Next I used the "thx" framelit (from the circle flip card framelit thingy pack) to punch out the sentiment (in Balckberry Bliss).  Then I punched out all the hearts … and stuck them to my mini glue dots (this makes the actual assembly MUCH faster than doing each heart one at a time!)
Once that was done I ran each layer through my stripes embossing folder.  I put the folder with the lack SU logo facing DOWN so I got the debased image in the direction I wanted the arrows … like this:
"TAMARA!", I hear you cry … "how on earth did you get just a strip of the embossing folder to emboss??"

Well My Dear Stamper, you simply take your craft and rubber scissor and cut that embossing folder up!  Like so:
You then just fold the thin strip against the card stock and run it through your Big Shot with the other flaps "up" … that way only the thing strip embosses. Don't worry … if you ever want to emboss a full layer of paper you still can …just close all 3 pieces of the folder - good as new!  Yes, I know - I'm a genius!
I added a single rhinestone to the orange heart and Wa-low!  Done!
Let's see the final project again!
Love it :)  I ca't wait to play with all the new colors some more!

I have another 3 or 4 posts in the works so pop in again soon to check those out.  Until then, have a stampy day!

Work Of Art

Happy Tuesday!

A perfectly gloomy day here in Edmonton today … the perfect day to make some soup, do some housework and generally relax!  Today is one of those rare days where I have nothing on the calendar!!    Of course rather than try to get AHEAD of the game for once I'm enjoying a second cup of coffee and thought I'd take a few minutes to post a project for you!  I know, right?  Crazy!  *lol*

Last night I managed to steal an hour in my craft room.  I started off cleaning up from Sunday's party … but that quickly turned into a mini crafting session.  Back in April (April 30th to be exact!) I went to the new catalogue premiere and got a free stamp set called Work of Art.  Almost a month later I FINALLY got a minute to put it together and test drive it.  Oh ya - LOOOOVE it!!  Here's what I came up with:
Fun!!!  There have been SO many awesome samples using this fun new set … it's a "must have" … right up there with Gorgeous Grunge!  I couldn't resist making a fairly monochromatic card using the delicious new Blackberry Bliss In Color colour.  What pairs better with purple than gold??!!  The picture isn't a great one but it's awesome *live*!  I inked the swipe image and silly stamped it four times, so the colour got lighter each time.  I gold embossed the sentiment from …. umm …. you know … that other stamp set I love …. uh … Really Great Greetings?  Sure - let's go with that (where is that catalogue when I need it??).  The sequins are from the gold sequin ribbon/thread/rope stuff (ok … apparently brain is quite engaged yet this morning!) … I took them off the string and attached them with glue dots (been going through glue dots like Tic Tacs this week!).  I matted the top layer on a piece of the Gold Foil … and that on a piece of Blackberry Bliss.  Love it!  …now I'm craving blackberries …. think I'll hit the fridge!

Pop back tomorrow(ish) … I have more stuff to share (and apparently the time to share it!)  Until then - have a stampy day!

TOMORROW!! Retiring Product Blow Out Sale!!!

Happy Wednesday!

How is it that every time I announce I'm going to be posting less I end up posting more??!!

Today has been a crazy mixed up day.  Rebecca ended up at the dentist and had two more teeth pulled out this morning (that makes 5 this month, 8 in total!!!) so ended up home this afternoon.  Needless to say I've accomplished nothing today.  On the bright side I really had nothing TO accomplish today.  A great day to be a SAHM!

So I come home from the dentist and see a new promotion notification from Stampin' Up! … it starts tomorrow and I can guarantee items will sell out FAST … and by fast I mean within HOURS if history is any indicator!  From the way they wrote the notice it seems like they may be offering already-sold-out items while supplies last  but I'm not sure … might just be worth staying up until 12:00 am to check it out!  Here is the notice:

!!!!!! Get excited!!! Stampin' Up! will be offering a 25%-50% discount on many of the retiring products starting tomorrow, May 22. But you have to act FAST, as this special offer is only available until June 4, 2014 or while supplies last. 90% of the retiring products are already sold out so DON'T WAIT!!! If you missed out on a product the first time, this is your last chance to get it before it's gone for good!

SO exciting!  This is the first year they have had stamps "while supplies last" and they sold out SO fast!  

So if you wanted any items that are retiring, check out the website bright and early tomorrow morning and place an on-line order through my store or you will very likely miss out! … click on "Shop" in the right hand corner.  Yes, there is a minimum $9.95 shipping charge but it's well worth it if you get the items you want!  

Yes, 12-month club members - you can apply any purchases to your club order (due tomorrow anyway!) IF AND ONLY IF you make an online purchase an apply the hostess code GKRDDHFB at checkout!!!

Gotta fly - off to pick up Alicia  and three other children  yet another long story.  That's the way we roll around here this week!!  Have a stampy day!

Project Life and Weekly Deals!

Happy Tuesday!

Yes, I'm surprised to see me back so soon too!  Just a quick one today as the Shaw Cable guy is coming shortly to hook up our new Gateway system.  Long story … but suffice it to say if you can save a LOT of money on your monthly bill if you agree to switch to Telus.  Once we decided to switch Shaw came back to us and I'm saving $100 a MONTH for the next 6 months to stay with them.  $100!!!  Sheesh … wonder if that means they charge us all WAY too much for service normally???

Aaaaaaaaanyway!  I just wanted to post that select Project Li
fe items are available for purchase … and the full line is available starting June 1st.  Yes, I already purchased all of these items on my pre-order (one of the perks of being a demonstrator!) so if you have any questions just ask away (I'm THRILLED with all that you get btw!)
I'm placing my next order May 26th.

Oh!  Might as well post the weekly deals while I'm at it!  Here they are … good until May 26th as well:

Gotta run.  Have a stampy Tuesday!

Happy Victoria Day!  Kind of a crazy reason to have a day off but we'll take it, yes??

I know I've been MIA lately … have you noticed?  Yes - I've been recovering from the last few months of being stupidly busy, stressed out and fighting fires day after day.  Last week was a lot of catch-up, more field trips and a bit of shopping (both for something called VEGETABLES as well as sandals and a few other things for the upcoming vacation!!)

I've also been taking some time to enjoy the family!  I feel I've been really snippy with them all lately due to the stress and lack of sleep … and am making up for it now.  Last night I also spent a lot of time going through my craft roomed switching out retiring items for NEW items.  I can't believe how many stamp sets leave me every year :(  I struggle to let go of my favourite retiring In Color items but if I DON"T one day I'll be buried alive under all my stuff … I have a LOT of stuff!  (That's great news for my local customers who are going to have tonnes of items to buy at my next garage sale!!)

I've also spent time this week thinking about how I can worker smarter, not harder. One thing I realized was that his blog takes a LOT of time and energy to maintain.  Oh don't worry, I don't plan to stop posting … I LOVE sharing my "crazy" and my projects … I just can't do it every day. What I CAN do faster and more often is post to FaceBook.  The process is SO much faster and easier.  I don't have to take pictures with my camera, upload them to my main computer, edit them and so on, I can just snap a quick pic with my iPad and post it to FB.  If people have questions about the project they can just enter a comment - I don't feel I have to give detailed instructions and products used like I do with my blog posts.  SO!  You need to head over to my "Tamara's Paper Trail" Facebook page - just do a search for it and hit "Like" and stay in the loop of promotions, classes and projects.  I know many of my blog followers and customers aren't ON Facebook.  You can be on Facebook without providing detailed information about yourself (which is why most people chose not to be on FB) - you can set up an anonymous account and just follow me … and others. That will be the site that I update MUCH more frequently than my blog … just for speed and convenience.

Right!  Enough rambling ... let's see a project!  If you ARE already on my Facebook page you all have seen these already … last week!  They are the oh-so-popular Card-in-a-Box … or Pop-up-Card as they are also called.  Here they are:

LOVE how they turned out … but I must say I would only ever make a few of these a year … and only for a VERY special occasion … Like my FIL's 80th birthday or Mother's Day!  Making the box itself is VERY easy … and while the embellishing is supposed to be the fun part I found it about as enjoyable as having my bikini line waxed!  yes - the end result is great but the process is time consuming and painful! lol!  Rather than explain in detail how I made them I'll just direct you to the Splitcoast Stampers tutorial that I used to make them.  This particular layout yields a larger-than-normal card that requires larger envelope (good thing we can make our own with our envelope punch board!) but there ARE tutorials out there with dimensions to make one that fits a standard envelope when closed (cheaper for mailing).  To make this larger size you need 8 1/2" x 12" card stock.  The tutorial can be found here:

So that's it for today … we're off to see Rio 2 at the theatre in a few hours so I should walk Doodles and get cleaned up.  Speaking of Doodles, here's a cute pic of him and Alicia … the big suck!  lol … Pop in again - until then, have a stampy Monday!

Happy Sunday … Take II

Yo!  Me again!  I forgot to post the main project I wanted to share!  I whipped up a quick My Digital Studio page (MDS) of me and 'becca.  I want to make one for each of the 20 parents who came to camp … a pic of them and their child and a group shot … for a great keepsake.  I'm really starting to dig MDS (dig?!  Did I really just date myself that badly??!!  *lol*)
Took about 6 minutes to make.  LOVE it!


Happy Mother's Day!!!

Happy Sunday .. and Happy Mother's Day!!!

I just wanted to share a few pictures from the last 4 days with you.  It has been a VERY busy week but SO much fun!!!

Rebecca and I went to "Camp Encounters" Thursday and Friday.  I pretty much hate everything about camping - from the bugs to the grime to the uncomfortable sleeping but I HAVE to say I had a BALL and would do it again in a heartbeat (but I think next time I'd be packing a wee bit of wine ;)

Here we are about half an hour after we got there.  It was at a Catholic Camp on Lac LaLonde.  Looking fairly perky and fresh :)
 Day 2 … at Survival Island.  So.  Much.  Fun!  Not quite as bright eyed and bushy tailed but still willing to have some fun chasing a bunch of 10-11 year olds through the bush with a pool noodle!
A mere 5 hours later we were home, all cleaned up and ready for dinner at La Ronde with 20 Bertrams for Craig's Dad's 80th birthday dinner.  Yep - we clean up good!
 Rebecca is my oldest, Alicia my youngest:
 … and of course My Love, Craig.
We had such a great night … which was followed by a great Saturday at Craig's sisters.  She held and Open House for my FIL and it was another round of 30 or so relatives, laughs, wine and good times.  It MUST have been a good time - the "plan" was to stay an hour or two before coming home to collapse in a heap.  The plan sucked.  We stayed 6 HOURS *lol*.  Yes, today is a quiet day around here.  All THIS Mama wanted was nothing on the calendar, kids that don't fight all day and a nap.  Mission accomplished (although I think if you "nap" for 1 1/2 hours it counts more of a sleep!  Yep, I was TIRED!)

So Happy Mother's Day to all the fabulous ladies out there who pack the lunched, wash the faces, curl the hair, drive the "taxi" and love their kids …. no matter what.

Pop in again in the next day or so.  I have 2 AWESOME projects to share - the sign in book I made for my FIL's party and the card-in-a-bad I made him!  Until then, have a stampy evening!

Soho Subway Altered Memo Box

Happy Wednesday!

Today I'm going to show lots of photos rather than ramble on.  It's pretty self explanatory, really!  

A few weeks ago I bought two little memo sheet boxes at the dollar store.

While they are pretty as they are I thought they'd look even better covered in some yummy designer paper … so that's what I did.  I used my Soho Subway DSP and look how they turned out!

All I did was rip the box apart, apply double side sticky strip to the cover and then hot glued the box back on!  It was really easy!  Here are the pictures I took along the way:

Rip off the cover"

Apply sick strip

… and wrap!

Hot glue it back together and wa-low!
The plan is to make a coordinating card using the Soho Subway paper … just hasn't happened yet.  But when it DOES I'll have a quick, cute little gift to give to a friend or teacher.  Yay me!

That's it for today … I need to go start packing … Rebecca and I are off to Camp Encounters tomorrow and overnight and Friday.  I'm not a camper … even in a cabin … so wish me luck!!  50+ Grade 5 children … mostly BOYS … oh my.  What have I gotten myself into????  Pop in again soon to see if I survive it!  Until then, have a stampy day!

Triangle CASE

Happy Tuesday!

No time to chat .. Technique class tonight and, as usual, I'm not ready!!  

Today's card is a CASE from one I found on Pinterest some time back.  The creator has a blog over at … this is her original card that inspired mine:
So clean and lovely … I love the bold sentiment!  Here is my take on it using Stampin' Up! products:
I simply used the Triangle punch with various colours of card stock.  The sentiment is from Four You.  That's all I have to say about that!  Quick and simple!

OK … off and running.  Pop back soon … and have a stampy day!


Monday, May 5, 2014

Oh Hello - again

Happy Monday!

Another quick post today.  I'm afraid this one likely won't blow your hair back … but I had the picture on the camera so thought I might as well share it!

Remember a few weeks back I shared this card that we made at my April Stamp-a-Stack?:
Well this next card was my first version of it … but it didn't make the cut.  I was aiming for a "guy" card but it really was kind of lacking … so I moved on and made the one above.

The colours are Island Indigo and Elegant Eggplant (I was in a real Eggplant mood that week!)  The sentiment is from the retired Best Dad Ever Set.  Meh.  Nice but …

Right … I'm off to do some paperwork.  Until tomorrow, have a stampy day!

Easter Cross

Happy Sunday!

A "nothing planned" day today … just the way I like Sundays.  Another cool one up here in Edmonton so I'm thinking it's a roast kind-of-a-day … and hopefully some crafting!!

The next few posts are going to be fairly short and sweet … as I try to get caught up on everything!  

Given that today is "God's Day" I think it's appropriate for me to share the Easter card I made … the day before Good Friday.  Ya.  A little late, I know.  On the bright side I'm REALLY ahead of the game for NEXT Easter!  Here's what I did:
I absolutely LOVE this image!  No, it's not a stamp.  It's an image I found on Pinterest.  I don't know HOW I did it, but I SOMEHOW managed to import the image into My Digital Studio, resize it and print it off!  My plan was to have sun rays shining behind the cross but I was obviously short on time so left it clean and simple.  I added some Whisteria Wonder Designer Paper and a strip of Elegant Eggplant and I was done.  I stamped the "He is Risen" stamp in the inside.  Quick, clean and lovely, I think!

That's it for today.  Until tomorrow, have a stampy day!

Watercolor Wetlands

Happy Saturday!

This is a GREAT day for a pajama day!  We've gone from 22 degrees on Wednesday to a high of FOUR today.  FOUR!!!!  WTH???  We are in no rush to pick up the girls - a slow, easy morning before the birthday boy gets to open his presents.  (Of course we can't do that without the kids!)

Guess I should go make him a card, huh?  *lol* … yep … never truly ahead of the game around here :)

Right!  Today I wanted to share a FABULOUS card that we made for Technique Class last month using the Aqua Painter.  I can't find the card that inspired me but I'm SURE it was Deana Boos over at Pink Paper Bakery (  If it wasn't I apologize … I was definitely inspired by a card that used a similar layout and these colours.  Here is mine:
Love it!  This card is SO great for ANY occasion!  It's also great because it only uses one stamp set - Wetlands, of course.  If you don't own this set you really MUST get it!!  SO versatile!

For this card I used a small piece of water-colour paper.  It's great quality paper but also a little pricy … I think it's $595 CAN for (5) sheets that are 6"x4" … so you generally just want to use a small piece of it unless our are making a really special card for someone.  There really is nothing to this watercoloring gig!  I used three colours of ink - Crumb Cake, Soft Sky and Marina Mist.  I squeezed the closed ink pads to transfer some ink to the inside lid.  Once I opened the ink I just picked up the colour with my Aqua Painter a scribbled the colour onto the paper.  It's that easy!  If you pick up too much ink just squeeze your Aqua painter and i will dilute it.  It really is fool proof.  Once the paper is dry (… and I'm talkin' 100% dry!) I stamped the birds in Early Espresso.  A few of my stampers didn't wait for it to dry enough so their bird images bled. as the ink is water based … you can use your heat tool to dry the paper before stamping on it.  A little piece of the Naturals 5/8" Chevron ribbon, the sentiment (in Early Espresso) and a few pearls finished it off.  SO quick, SO easy and SO nice, don't you think??

That's it for today … I'm off for another cup of coffee and a snuggle with the Birthday Boy.  Pop in again soon.  Until then, have a stampy Saturday!

Happy Belated Easter!!

Happy Friday!

I'm going to get right to it … Craig has the day off today and we are off to the bank to do mortgage-stuff (yuck!) Then we get to spend the day together (yay!) … and the night together!  We're shipping the girls off to Grandma's house so we can actually be in the same room at the same time for a change .. plus it's Craig's 50th BIRTHDAY tomorrow so it will be nice to have a quiet, slow morning without the chaos and catering that comes with having kids! 

I wanted to share the Easter card Rebecca made this year. Here it is!
Cute, yes?? I helped her a bit with the design but she did the work.  The grass was made with Gumball Green card stock and the Fringe Scissors in the mini.  She stamped the bunny ears (from the retired Sock Monkey set) in black Staz-on then coloured the inside of the ears with Pink Pirouette marker.  The basket was from the Sock Monkey set as well and punched out, matted on a Pink Pirouette circle.  She coloured the basket and contents with various markers.  The sentiment is Marina Mist and from the Wacky Wishes retired set.  It was quick and easy … which is always appreciated when she makes 8 of them!

That's it for now.  Have a stampy Friday!

Love you to the Moon

Happy Thursday!

I'm a little sleepy this morning …wait a minute .. I'm sleepy EVERY morning! … but I'm MORE sleepy than usual today because last night at was out late … at the PREMIERE OF THE UPCOMING CATALOGUE!!!!  *insert racing heart and scrunchy excited face here*

The event was SO fun!!!  Stampin' Up! had a "red carpet" event at the downtown movie theatres.  They originally planned to have a live catalogue event in California and have it streamed live to several US and Canadian cities … of which Edmonton was one … but there was a problem so although the event WAS live, the streaming was 2 days later here in Canada.  ANYway … it was fun, fun, fun!  There were "celebrities" from the home office in attendance and we all got "swag bags" with free products inside.  It really was an awesome night!  I can't wait to show everyone the new catalogue!!!  In the meantime, I'll keep sharing the stockpile of projects I came up with over the last few weeks.  

Today's project is the card I made for Craig for our 10 year anniversary back on April 14th.  Once again I made it with half an hour to spare … and it was perfect! 
SO clean and simple!  I used a Midnight Muse base, a Crumb Cake layer and then a Whisper White layer.  I stamped the sentiment, from Love You to the Moon (from the mini) in Midnight Muse (a retiring colour :( ) and then ran the layer through the Big Shot with the Needlepoint Border embossing folder.  Two little heart (Midnight Muse and Crumb cake) with 2 little rhinestones (sorry Craig!) finish it off.  LOVE it!!!

That's it for now!  Pop in again soon. Until then, have a stampy day!
