Ocean Picture Frame


Creating this project makes me think of the trips I've taken down east. My mom and I are headed to Nova Scotia at the end of this month. I'll put my favourite picture in this frame after our trip. T minus 10 days!


The Under the Sea Framlits makes this project easy! The only freehand cutting I did was around the back seaweed. For the sand dollars I stamped the net onto Whisper White cardstock and then ran it through the Big Shot with the sand dollar framelits, then used my Aquapainter with a small amount of Crumb Cake ink to muddy the lines a bit.

Supplies
Stamps: Sea of Textures
Colours: Bermuda Bay, Granite Gray, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Tranquil Textures Sprinkles, Linen Thread, Stampin' Dimensionals, Layering Circle Thinlits, Under The Sea Framelits, Seaside Embossing Folder

A piece of Tropical Paradise!


Yesterday I participated in a demonstrator training day put on by my upline Lisa Henderson and another demonstrator Michelle Stenson. It was a lovely day to hang out with the others and learn new things and be creative with new products! The first project we worked on was this lovely bundle of 3" x 3" cards and a pizza box to hold them. I love all the little accents on each card!

Our second project was this little box to hold our cute little succulent! The main greeting was stamped and cut out with the Stitched Shape Frameltis. But the leaves were all cut out using the Tropical Thinlits and 2 pieces of paper from the Topical Escape designer series. It's great that the thinlits can do double duty and cut out images both stamped and from the designer series paper!

Supplies
Stamps: Tropical Chic, Detailed With Love
Colours: Blushing Bride, Granny Apple Green, Shaded Sprice, Whisper White
Accessories: Tropical Thinlits, Tropical Escape 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper, Tropical Elements (wood flower), Nature's Twine - Crumb Cake, Stampin' Dimensionals, Gift Box Punch board, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Tailored Tag Punch

Octopus Shoebox Swap

This past weekend my upline hosted a Shoebox Swap - Case the Catalogue event at her home. It was fun to create cards and hang out!

It was really hard to choose a sample from the catalogue I wanted to make my own! I was finally able to decide on the Sea of Textures stamp set. The top image is from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue on page 154 where my inspiration for this card came from - the white gable box on the bottom right corner.

Supplies
Stamps: Sea of Textures
Colours: Mint Macron, Powder Pink, Soft Sea Foam, Night of Navy
Accessories: Under the Sea Framelits, Stampin' Dimensionals

The new Sea of Textures stamp set is awesome! There are so many projects I want to make using it! I made this card for a demonstrator swap last month. It was really quick to put together and make 5 of them since I was making them the day they were needed. But that's ok, I love how the card turned out! What about you? Do you find yourself making a card just before you need it?

May's Crop in Support of Relay For Life

Thank you for those that crafted this past Saturday at our all day crop in support of Relay For Life! I was able to work with May's Paper Pumpkin kit - Manly Moments and put labels on my new ink pads. It looked like a lot of others were busy creating all day as well!

Not sure why I didn't add journaling to my pocket page. These pictures are a few events rolled into one page since each event wasn't enough to do a whole page for. Except perhaps the bumper picture on the bottom middle. I might have to do a whole page on that one. That's when a new driver was practicing parking in the grocery store parking lot and hit the truck. Thankfully only the bumper was damaged but I think I'll go back and change this page. That's one of the perks of creating pocket pages! If I want to change or switch out something it is really easy to do that!

The 3D project this month is a small 3" x 4" mini album or thank you journal. Everyone could add as many cards as they wanted. You could also use the 4" x 6" cards from a Memories & More card pack to create a larger version. We used ribbon to tie all the cards together after they were hole punched in the top left corner but you could also use what I call clasp rings.

Lisa did an excellent job with the scrapbook page! Hard to believe she used two 4" x 6" cards to create the flora main piece on the left. And her son is an adorable subject to scrap about as well!

These 2 cards Lisa designed were made using the new Whisper White Memories & More cards & envelopes that will be available starting June 1st in the new 2018-2019 Annual catalogue. There are 2 packs of cards and envelopes: one that will fit the 4" x 6" cards and the other smaller pack will fit the 3" x 4" cards.

At each all day crop each attendee will receive a grab bag containing product from the catalogue. This product is then used to create the projects like the ones I've shared above. Please join us at our next crop on Sat June 23rd in support of Make A Wish. Deadline to register is June 14th. You can register following this link on Lisa's website or you can contact me directly!

Supplies
Stamps: Prennial Birthday (stamp set in everyone's grab bag!)
Colours: Old Olive, Rich Razzelberry, Marina Mist, Berry Burst
Accessories: Sweet Soirée Memories & More card pack (Extra gift in everyone's grab bag from Sale-A-Bration), Berry Burst Ribbon, Sale-A-Bration Ribbon pack
