Big News Wedding Card

Good morning!  I've been busy preparing for one of my all time favorite events of the year - my annual hostess appreciation event. I normally hold this event in June but this year I just couldn't fit it in so I decided to wait until the end of August when most people will be back from holidays.  We always have lots of fun.  Everyone gets a little treat as a thank you from me, we make cute projects, play games, there are prizes and refreshments.  I'm super excited but still have lots to do in preparation for Monday and Tuesday.

Anyway... on to today's card - a catalogue CASE from Tammy Boutin using the Big News stamp set.  Check out the card on page 68.  There are such cute projects in the catalogue, why not copy one you love.  It saves you time and effort:)

Thanks Tammy for sharing!

Have a creative weekend!

Stampin' Up! Blendabilities Card

I had my first Blendabilities class last night and this is one of the cards we created.  Such a simple card but the flower has so much dimension thanks to our new alcohol markers!  One thing I noticed was that coloring with these markers is addictive.  They really are a lot of fun!

If you are curious about our Blendabilities markers and want to give them a try - the second class is scheduled for Tuesday September 23rd at 7pm.  And if you already know that you love them or want them all, consider joining the Blend Well Club where you can attend the classes for free.  You can find all the details here.

Have a creative day!

Chalk Talk Swap and Weekly Deals

Good morning!  I have another beautiful swap to share with you today - this one created by Sherie Mortazay.  Lots of Gorgeous Grunge used to create the beautiful background.  I love the layering of the two images from the Chalk Talk stamp set.  Such a great swap - thanks Sherie!

And because it's Tuesday, I thought I'd also share the weekly deals.  These are good from today until August 25th.
Love the square framelits, Honeycomb folder and the Elegant Butterfly punch - some great products this week!  If there's anything you'd like to order, you can do so online or by sending me an email

Weekend Retreat - only 4 spots left!

Are you looking for a creative escape?  Well I may just have the answer for you.  I have planned a weekend creative escape out at Bittern Lake Lodge (Oct. 31, Nov. 1st and 2nd, 2014).  If you haven't been on a weekend retreat - these are FABULOUS!  So much fun to gather with other crafters for some dedicated crafting time and to be inspired by others.

Here's a little more information on the retreat...

The service provided by Sheldon and his Chef (Ramon) is amazing!  The cost is exceptional considering the quality of food and service at the lodge.  At the retreat you can expect uninterrupted (only meals and times you decide) crafting/you time.  You can craft from sun up to sun down or well beyond - or craft very little or not at all.  Naps and pajamas are always endorsed:)  This retreat allows you to focus on what you want to do, when you want to do it.  The retreat is open from 4pm on Friday and closes at 4pm on Sunday.

While a guest at Bittern Lake Lodge, you will be treated to a homey atmosphere that can accommodate up to 18 crafters in double and triple (one queen (two people share the queen) and a single) rooms that feature goose down duvet quilts and pillows (single rooms are not typically available).

  • Single guests are always welcome too.  If you come as a single, you may be matched up with another single guest but will not be asked to share a queen bed with a stranger:)
  • If you come as a triple, your group will be placed in a triple room - two guests will have to share a queen bed.  Or you can bring a personal cot.
The sleeping quarters are in a separate building from the main lodge and are very quiet and relaxing.  The sleeping house is always a quiet zone.

The main building features several amenities such as a pool table, a full sized guest fridge for guest items (simple snacks or special beverages), ice machine, margarita machine, two fireplaces, large screen tv and satellite and wireless internet.  Outside, the beauty of Alberta allows for walks in the country and many sitting areas outside.  in the crafting room, each crafter has their own 6' table to work at with a power bar at each pod of tables.  For quilters, there is additional space for your iron and other related items to work on your projects.  The lighting is excellent and there are many windows showing the beautiful property that the lodge sits on.

The meals at the lodge are amazing!  All meals are almost totally made from scratch and as part of your fee, you will receive a light dinner on the day of arrival, three full, delicious meals on the full days at the lodge and breakfast and lunch on the day of departure.  While you may bring your own snacks, you will probably find that you will not need them!  Coffee, tea, hot chocolate and water are always available.  You are welcome to bring your own beverage selections as well, including alcohol (if consumed responsibly).

All this, plus a few little extras from me - all for only $210!  Optional classes (for an additional fee) will be available to register for and will be sent out in September to all registrants.  These classes will all be available for you to do at any time throughout the weekend.  By not having scheduled class times, this allows you to fit them in when it works for you and doesn't interrupt your crafting time!

One last thing you need to know - Bittern Lake Lodge is also a waterfowl hunting lodge, so when it is not hunting season (September to mid-October) Sheldon rents out his facility - this means there are wildlife trophies of all types throughout the lodge.  Please be aware of this as you make your decision to join us.

Please note that a deposit of at least $105 is due upon registration to hold your place.  Balance is due 30 days prior to departure.  Payment can be made by cheque, money order or by email money transfer (sorry no PayPal option for this event).  Retreat is limited to 18 people.  ***Only 4 spots left!***  Deposit holds your spot.

I hope that you are able to join us at this fabulous Creative Escape!  I know that you will love it.

Calling All Heroes Swaps

I received a couple swaps using the Calling All Heroes photopolymer stamp set.  I love this little stamp set but haven't had much of a chance to play with it so I was happy to receive some inspiration.  This first one was created by Dawn Buffington - it would make a great birthday invitation.

And this next one was created by Becky Meyerhofer. This was another full card that I received - check out the inside...

A lot of work went into this card!  There is a lot of stamping!

Have a creative weekend!

Gorgeous Grunge Swap

Check out this gorgeous swap that I received from Mickie Allison.  I LOVE this card.  What a great teen card or masculine birthday card this would make.  All the images, apart from the greeting, are from the gorgeous grunge stamp set.  Another set that I love. 

Normally we only swap card fronts but this swap is a full card and it's decorated on this inside too!
Thank you Mickie for such a fabulous swap!

Have a creative day!

Snapshot Swap

Good morning!  I have one of my favorite swaps to share with you today.  This card was created by Sandra Campbell.  She used one of our single stamps called Snapshot.  The saying is perfect - We Click - so cute!  What a great anniversary card for your significant other!

Notice the gray and red lines in the background?  That image is from the Work of Art stamp set!  Such a nice addition to the background. 

Sorry for the quick post but we are off and running today.  Lots to do. 

Have a creative day!

Happy Tuesday morning!  I hope you have lots of great things planned for today.  The Roth household has a full day ahead - including a baby shower consultation, Costco for groceries, cleaning, photos with the whole family at the lake and then everyone is back to our place for dinner.  Throw in some laundry, prep work for dinner, cutting for stamp club tomorrow, cleaning and a meeting with a realtor with a possible offer on our house and that makes one full day!

Before the craziness starts though I wanted to pop in and share a new photopolymer stamp set that was released this morning and the weekly deals.  First check out these adorable samples created with the new stamp set - Yee-Haw!
So different from anything else we have!  That's what I am loving about the photopolymer stamp set releases.  Here's a look at the whole set...
And here's a peek at this weeks specials.

If there's anything that you'd like to order, you can either order online or send me an email.

Thanks for stopping by!

My Paper Pumpkin Sneak Peek

Wow what a weekend we had - so much fun!  Friends of ours are in town from Ontario so they came over to spend the day with us on Saturday, then I invited some friends over from junior high for the evening.  It was so great catching up, looking at old photos and remembering our teen years. 
Then yesterday we spent the evening at my parents place - my brother and his family are visiting from Halifax so we had a wonderful visit with them and look forward to spending lots of time with them over the next couple weeks.  It was a great weekend full of family and friends!  I hope yours was just as great!
On to today's project... At this years Stampin' Up! convention we had the opportunity to make a project from September's My Paper Pumpkin package.  It's this super cute burlap bag with the supplies to create tags to attach to them. 
It also includes the clothespins, black twine and the gorgeous orange sequins!  Wouldn't these be perfect for little treats for coworkers, friends and/or family? 

If you haven't yet tried My Paper Pumpkin, now is a great time to give it a shot.  If you use coupon code HALFOFF2, you'll receive your first two months at 50% off. Promotion runs until September 10th.  Be sure to sign up today so that you don't miss out on these adorable burlap bags!
