Goodbye to Nailed It!

Made this card for a friend who's very into carpentry and home improvement. The Nailed It! stamp set is perfect for him and it is another stamp I'm going to miss. Think I'll hang onto this one since it's perfect for home reno scrapbook pages! You can still order the Nailed It stampin set before it retires on May 31! I cased this wonderful design from Julie Kettlewell.

I am very excited for the new 2017-2018 Annual catalogue starting on June 1st!! You are invited to join me for my Catalogue Kick off on Sat June 24th at my home.

Stamps: Nailed It, Wetlands
Colours: Basic Grey, Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Smokey Slate
Accessories: Urban Underground Designer Series Paper, Build It framelits

Always an Adventure!

I am in love with the Always an Adventure and Outdoor Adventure framelits! But they are retiring at the end of May so make sure to order yourself any retiring items soon! They are great for any card or scrapbook page, and perfect for this pocket page layout from our camping trip in August 2003. I stamped the bear in black to match the colour of my dog's fur. On top of one picture of Hoover sitting in the grass I used the tree framelits to add some dimension to that picture.

Stamps: Always an Adventure
Colours: Garden Green, Wild Wasabi, Basic Grey, Smokey Slate, Whisper White, Crushed Curry, Basic Black, Night of Navy
Accessories: Outdoor Adventure framelits, fine tip glue pen
