September Crop - Run for the Cure

Thank you to all you participated in Saturday's crop, we raised $100 for Run for the Cure! What's even more fantastic? The amount of money that has been raised over the past two years for all the charities we've supported is: $3,344.31 - wow and thank you from both Lisa and I!
This month we featured the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper. This pack has a lot of different patterns that work so well with many different projects. On my pocket page there is very little stamping except for the title.

The gussetted cellophane bags from Stampin' Up! are perfect size for oreo cookies! Add this dragonfly tag on top and it's ready to give away to a friend.

Lisa created these 2 projects. Her card would be perfect for any occasion. No need to add a sentiment on the front - your hand written note inside will say it all!

Lisa's scrapbook page features multiple designs from this paper pack and I like how her design pulls your eye to the photo. 

We have 2 Crops planning in October! Join us on Saturday October 21st at St. Lawrence College in support of Ronald McDonald House Charities (your grab bag will include the Sweet stamp set!) sign up here by visiting the event's page. And our second crop will be on Saturday October 28th in Elgin in support of the Elgin Rink Renovation - sign up here by visiting the event's page  We would love to see you!

A Special Couple


This is the second card that I was asked to make for a coworker's wedding. We wanted to the card to have lots of space to write good wishes so the card measures 5" x 6.5".

It's best to use watercolor paper to create the wash of colour for the background of the flowers and stem. This is my third try to get the right look to it!

Supplies
Stamps: Colorful Seasons
Colours: Berry Burst, Early Espresso
Accessories: Color Theory Designer Series Paper, Watercolor paper, Seasonal Layers Thinlits, Big Shot, Aquapainter, Berry Burst ribbon, Tear & Tape adhesive.

I was asked to make an anniversary card to celebrate 50 years! The final card size was 5" x 7" so that more signatures could be placed inside. And a big celebration means a bigger card too! Even made an envelope from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack using the Envelope Punch Board. My mom thinks it's one of my best cards, thanks Mom!

Supplies
Stamps: Lift Me Up (Congratulations)
Colours: Tranquil Tide, Gold Foil Sheet
Accessories: Hearts and Stars Elements, Lovely Words Thinlits, Hearts thinlits, Big Shot, Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets, retired number thinlits.
