Tags & Tidings Bundle by Stampin' Up!

Happy Saturday!

How fun is THIS bundle?  Gotta admit, I wasn't keen on it when I saw it in the catalogue but something tells me I'm going to add it to my next order ...

I'm off to lunch with friends today.  Whatever YOU get up to, have a stampy time!

Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder by Stampin' Up!

Happy Friday!

I can't believe it's Friday already! .. but I'm happy it is.  This is one of the VERY rare Friday's that I DON'T have something scheduled for tonight ... so I scheduled "Family Bonding" instead.  Not sure what we're gunna do but whatever it is, we're gunna do it together!  (I'm thinking movie and game night given that we have 3 cm of SNOW on the ground up here in the Great White North!)

I also plan to spend some time in my cave today.  This Tin Tile Embossing Folder is one of my faves - check out the AMAZING look on the foil paper ... and have as stampy day!

September 19, 2018 Newsletter

Happy Wednesday ... again!

SEE?  TOLD YOU I was gunna get stuff done today!

Are registered to receive my emails/newsletter?  It mostly applies to local (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada) crafters but anyone, anywhere is welcome to get them!  You just have to sign up for them

This is the Newsletter from today.  Enjoy!

That's all.  Carry on :)


Dream Catcher

Happy Wednesday!

Yay!  Today is the day!  Everyone seems to be safely delivered to school!  No forgotten bus passes, not throwing up on the bus, no missing the bus, no "mom to the rescue" required!  Today is the day I'll get some work done!  Whoot!

Quick one today so I CAN get on with things (after I take my favourite hour of the day - walking with my fluffy white buddy!)!

I made this about 3 weeks ago.  It looks better in person but still isn't EXACTLY what I was going for.  I just LOVE the colour scheme, though - Crumb Cake, Soft Sea Foam and Night of Navy ...
I made using the Follow Your Dreams Bundle ($55.75) in the 2018 Annual Catalogue. 

You know what is ESSENTIAL to the success of this card?  That's right - the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets ($13.50).  Slapping those bad boys on the back of your card stock before you run it through the Big Shot is a must.  Turns those delicate dream catchers into stickers.  No messy glue required!
Quick, easy, lovely card to kick off your Wednesday.

Off I go to "get 'er done".  Have a stampy day!

Bring on the Presents

Happy Sunday!

It is THE perfect Sunday in Tamara-World today.  Rainy, sleety and a frigid +2 degrees.  HEAVEN!

I had HOPED to spend a few hours in the Cave but ended up at the computer for most of it.  Once I had done my "must do" jobs I kicked Alicia's butt in Monopoly and am now just waiting for dinner to cook.  Ribs mmmmmmmm

Thought I'd pop in and share a quick and easy Christmas card I made last week.  I say "quick" but it took me at least 2 hours to come up with *lol*.  Check it out ...
It is made with the Tufted Embossing folder - $12.25 (it is a MUST have in your collection.  Trust me!  Just GET it!) and the new "Bring on the Presents" Bundle ($54.75), in the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.

 The sentiment is from Snowflake Sentiments ($41)
... and is punched out with the Stitched Ovals framelits ($41)
I used Shaded Spruce and Real Red for the bows and a (retired) Perfect White Accent for the centre.

Quick, easy and cute!

Off to dinner I go - have a stampy night!

Winter Woods Bundle by Stampin' Up!

Happy Thursday!

Well ... September 12, 2018.  What happened?  It started snowing.  True story.  Snow.  WITH accumulation!  One would HOPE it would melt quickly but word on the street is it's going to do this for another day or two.  Crazy!  now I'm not gunna lie ... I do love the colder weather.  Sweater, boots, crisp mornings.  Right up my alley!  I'm not an outdoors kinda gal so I'm happy as a lark to me crafting in my basement with my warm socks and hot cup o' Joe!  (Gotta say, though, walking Koda was NOT much fun yesterday.  Gloves, scarf, hat and socks!)

All the snow has me thinking about Christmas cards more and more.  This is a bundle that you will want to consider.  The tree with the cuts in it really is a fun one!

Check it out, stay warm and have a stampy day!

Beautiful Blizzard Bundle by Stampin' Up!

Happy Tuesday!

I LOVE this die! I used the magnetic platform and had NO trouble getting the pieces out by just flicking it with my finger. Pop some glimmer paper behind it, add a banner with a sentiment and you have a QUICK, beautiful card. Make sure you slap some multipurpose adhesive sheets on the back of the card stock BEFORE you run it through the Big Shot and then all your delicate snowflake will be stickers that are no-fuss and no-mess to apply to your projects! It's a must have, in my opinion!

Enjoy - and have a stampy day!
