Stampy Saturday

Ah, the peace and quiet of a Saturday where Thing 1 and Thing 2 are off for a visit to grandma's house.  That leaves me and Ashton here to do what we love most: stamping and not being sat on by Thing 2, respectively.  :)

I have so much to share with you today so let's get started with a card that was supposed to be posted on Monday!

Um, gorgeous!  I love this card for so many reasons but it definately didn't come together quickly.  It was started and restarted 2 or 3 times at least before the idea of stencilling on it popped into my head and after that it was finished pretty fast.  I used the Tulip Frame embossing folder on the base then cut a top note from old olive and from the Botanical Gazette DSP.  The small pieces of DSP were punched with the 1 1/4 square punch and then had the corners rounded on two sides.  I stamped the birdcage image from Nature Walk and then trimmed it out and put an Antique Brad through the centre.  The stencil is from the 3 pack in the Decor Elements catalogue, the name is escaping me just now.  I added the pearls for the always needed 'bling'!  Next came the Crochet Trim lace along the bottome and the final touch was to stamp the 'enjoy' from Fabulous Phrases and attach it with linen thread to the brad.  I stepped back to look at it and it still needed I smooched it with a very liberal dousing of Smooch that stuff!  Definately my favourite product right now.

Now as promised, BLOG CANDY!  Leave me a comment on this post letting me know what your favourite product to play with is right now.  I'll draw a name and post the winner on Tuesday.  If that is you, you'll get the Eggcroutements stamp set, a stack of 6x6 DSP sheets, and a packet of embellishments from the Pretties Kit!

And now I have to share these adorable babies...only they're not really babies anymore!  My ever more mobile 9 month old Ashton and the "Things", Skyeler and Calum.  Skye likes to see himself on my blog...*sigh*, ahh, children of the technology age! :)

That's it for today!  Check back Monday for a final Valentine's project.

Family Day!

I thought I'd share some photos of my babies today. I've had some requests to see some recent pictures so today seemed like a good day for it.

Here is my baby doll, Ashton. I can't believe he is already over 5 months old!

Here is my little monster, Calum - this boy is trouble with a capital 'T'!

And finally, here is Mr. Handsome himself, Skyeler!

So that's my family, thanks for letting me share them with you! It's wedding day tomorrow for my brother in law and his soon to be bride so we'll have a full weekend of festivities but I'll be back to Mojo with you again on Monday!
Have a fabulous weekend...hopefully one that includes some stamping!

I'm Stamping!

It's like a miracle! Life has been so hectic lately with both Stampin' Up! related events and family life. Skyeler started school 2 weeks ago so that's been an interesting new addition to my schedule but he loves it so it's all good! Here is a picture of Skye on his first day...he was so excited!

The past few weeks have held a lot of fun things as well including club night, my 1st Annual Hostess Appreciation party, classes, workshops and more. I have pictures from some of these and I'll post them over the next few days.

Between prepping for my upcoming workshops and a 3 day craft show (yikes!) I haven't had any time for "me" stamping. You know where you just sit down and make a card because you feel like it? But I did that on Monday and I made quite a few! Here is my favourite one of the day. I've really been using my colour coach and experimenting with colours that I don't use often....or to be more honest in this case, never use! This is Crumb Cake which is a fave with Bravo Burgundy and More Mustard. WHAT?! But it's so pretty! Guess that's why the make the colour coach because I would have never put those all together. I love the way it turned out. This is the Level Two hostess set Apple Blossoms which you can earn by hosting a workshop and I have been dying to break it open and use it because there are so many cute and unique images in it.

Well, I'm heading back down to my stamping studio to finish up my swaps for the Hamilton Regionals this Saturday. I've been waiting for the new Spider Web embossing folder to arrive and my man in brown just dropped it off so I can finally get them all done!
