Love You to Pieces Card and Video

I've got a fun card to share with you today using one of my favourite colour combinations - coastal cabana and granny apple green. I am loving the embossing mats for the big shot! Those mats just add so much versatility to any of our framelits!

I've filmed a quick video sharing all the dimensions and how this card comes together.

Still time to pick up this months class in the mail which features this Love You to Pieces bundle. You can find all the information here.

Have a creative day!

Let's Get Together Card using Stampin' Up!'s Love You to Pieces

I have a couple quick cards to share with you using the Love You to Pieces stamp set and a tutorial for one of them.


  •   Petal Pink: 5 ½” x 8 ½” scored at 4 ¼” – this will be your card base
  •   Calypso Coral: 3 5/8” x 4 7/8”
  •   Whisper White:3 ¾” x 4 ¾” and ¾” x 2 ¾”
  •   Vellum:  2 ¾” x 3 ½”for the heart


  •       Stamp the larger piece of whisper white card stock with petal pink ink using the floral image from the stamp set. Stamp off each time you reink the image to give it a softer look.
  •       Layer the stamped white cardstock to the calypso coral cardstock.
  •       Add that to the center of the card base using dimensionals.
  •       Die cut the second largest thin heart from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits using the vellum. Add to the card base using a bit of adhesive where it will be covered with the greeting.
  •       Stamp greeting onto the strip of white cardstock using calypso coral ink.
  •          Flag the left side of the greeting and add it to the card base using dimensionals.

  •       Tie a bow from the petal pink twine and add it to the card front using dimensionals.

   This card was the result of this one which was the result of another. I share the initial card fail in my VIP group on Facebook. Are you a member?

I love how soft and elegant this one is but I wanted to do a version of it with a bit more colour. What do you think? Which is your favourite?

If you like this card, be sure to check out this months class in the mail which features the Love You to Pieces bundle. You can find all the information here.

Get it before it's gone!

Stampin' Up! just released their retiring product list. Many of these products will be available while supplies last and some have already sold out. They will continue to manufacture the stamp sets until May 24 after that they will be while supplies last. If there's anything from this list that you want, I'd recommend picking it up sooner than later to avoid missing out.

View the retiring lists

NOTE: when you look at this list, it appears as though almost all of the stamps are retiring - this is NOT the case. They've listed so many of them because these skews will be reconfigured from clear  to cling mount. I will leave these lists as is until I have time to edit them with the correct information. In the meantime, please contact me if you'd like to know if any of the stamp sets you are interested in are actually retiring or just being reconfigured. I apologize for the confusion!

If your order is $50 or more before shipping & tax, and you use the host code below,  I'll send you a little something in the mail along with your thank you card.

Shop my Canadian online store.

Have a creative day!

Love You to Pieces Class in the Mail

This month Laura and I are using the Love You to Pieces bundle for our class in the mail. The projects this month are in a more masculine colour scheme to suite the men in your life. However, they can easily be recreated in different colours to suite the little ones and women in your life!

In this class, that you can do at home whenever suits you best, we'll be creating 7 cards - 2 each of three designs and one fun fold card.

  • The only additional supplies you'll need are: basic gray and crushed curry inks. 
  • Substitutions: substitutions of equal or lesser value can be made if you already own the products included in the class. Must be specified at time of order.
  • Email to order your class in the mail.
  • Registration closes April 25th. 
  • Supplies will be ordered on the 26th and be prepped and ready for pick up or shipped by the 6th of May, providing there are no back orders.
Here's a quick video that shares what is included, the supplies you need and a peek at the projects.

Option 1: This includes the Love You to Pieces bundle (stamp set + framelits) ($54); solid black bakers twine ($4); all pre cut supplies to create the 7 cards (2 each of 3 designs) and one with a fun fold; and step-by-step instructions, with measurements (in case you want to recreate the projects) to complete each of the projects. 

Cost for this option is $67 and is available across Canada. Shipping extra. With this option your tutorial and class kits are free! That's a $35 value!!

Scrapbook Saturday Free-for-all

Welcome to another Scrapbook Saturday free-for-all where I get to share my layouts with you that use products from my stash. As I challenge myself to work my way through the supplies I have. All of these layouts can easily be recreated using supplies that you have on hand! I hope that you give it a shot and be sure to share if you do!

This layout began with a sketch as most of them do.

I chose to not do the layout at an angle but apart from that I stuck pretty closely to the sketch. I used Echo Park paper - Celebrate Autumn Fall is Fun; Carta Bella Fall Break stickers and Sn@p Studio (Simple Stories) Alphabet stickers.

Check out my newest class - Let's Get Sketchy here.

Have a creative day!
