It Would Be “Love”ly to See You

Heart-cardHere's another Stampers Club card that we did in January. We used the Hearts a Flutter bundle – which includes the stamps and the framelits for you to use with your Big Shot. It's in the Stampin' Up! Spring Catalogue. The fun First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper is a backdrop for the die cut hearts and banner. I love how the Perfect Polka Dots adds a bit of texture to the background without being overwhelming.

I will be taking this card along with me when I go to CHCH studios tomorrow morning, but I'm not planning on featuring it so I feel safe to show it here. (For those newer to the YamStamps blog, it seems whenever I give a sneak peek of something I'm going to show on TV, we run out of time before we get to that project!). I do, however, plan on showing some other fun ways to show people that you care about them – on Valentine's Day or any other day during the year!! Plan is for me to be on around 9:15 on the Morning Live show, so I hope you're able to tune in! If not, I hope to be able to share a video here on the blog afterwards…so please come back to see.

I have limited space left in February's monthly card class – slated for Wednesday, February 6th at 7pm here in Burlington. Please contact me ASAP if you'd like to attend. If you aren't able to make it that evening, why not get a group together, and I will come to you!  Contact me for available dates. It would be "love"ly to see you!!

My Super Sunday….

Today is my Super Sunday for January – I have back to back in home classes scheduled! Fingers crossed I remember everything and that we stay on schedule 🙂 Both hostesses today were silent auction winners. I often donate baskets of stamping supplies and certificates for free classes to local organizations – in this case, my church and my son's school. It's a great way to help raise funds and to expose more people to the fun of Stampin' Up! parties!

Rainy-day-cardIn the meantime, I thought I'd share this card that we did at Stampers Club. Simple but fun folds always make cards more interesting, in my opinion. I love how the Cloudy Day Embossing Folder ties in with this boot and sentiment from Bootiful Occasions…and I will truly miss all things Pool Party when that colour retires at the end of May this year (it's one of the 2011 – 2013 In Colours).

We created the "sun" from Daffodil Delight cardstock and roughed up the edges with the Stampin' Distress Tool. A bit of the Sale-a-Bration Sycamore Street Ribbon (ribbon & bundle pack can be selected for free with each $60 merchandise order!) adds a final touch.

Whatever you are doing today, I hope that you have a Super Sunday today too!!

Announcing My Online Classes!!

Woohoo! I'm thrilled to announce the launch of my online class service. This is something that has been in the planning and prep stages for a while, and here it is! If you've ever wanted to attend one of my classes but the time didn't work, or you're not local to me, this is the option for you! Each online class that I offer will feature exclusive projects that you won't see anywhere else. Included in your $20 (Canadian) class fee – LIFETIME access to the videos, photos and information to that class – you will be able to go back over the information as many times as you want/need. As the tagline says – Paper Crafting Classes Wherever You Are, Whenever You Have the Time. Since the classes are online, you won't receive any materials to create the cards themselves, but there is a complete supply list for each project. If you're in Canada, I'd be happy to help you out there with my online Stampin' Up! store, but if you're accessing the class from anywhere else in the world, you can contact me to see about getting in touch with a demonstrator in your country.

The main class information page is here:

The first class I have up is "Monochromatic is Marvelous" where you'll find four projects complete with supply list and videos showing how to create each project. The specific class information page is

Sale-a-Brate a Birthday Card Sample

SAB-mini-cardThis is a fun card within a card that we did at Stampers Club the other evening that features some of the yummy new Sale-a-Bration free product.

The background is Rich Razzleberry cardstock embossed with the Tulip Frame Folder in the Big Shot.

We created our own mini envelope with the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper (SAB) and the Diagonal Scoring Plate (SAB) in the Simply Scored Scoring Tool. It perfectly fits the 3" x 3" card with the birthday image from Patterned Occasions (SAB) and I chose to top the candle with a rhinestone. The mini card could be used on its own, or as in the example above, adhered to a card-sized piece of cardstock.

If you would like to see more examples using Sale-a-Bration product, please sign up for my newsletters! (click on the link or visit if you're reading this in a reader or on the yamstamps app and sign up there!) The first Sale-a-Bration project newesletter will be going out TODAY, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23rd at 1pm Eastern Time so please sign up before then to ensure you get all of the Sale-a-Bration project emails! Much like my 12 Weeks of Christmas mailings featured Christmas projects, the Sale-a-Bration emails will feature Sale-a-Bration projects! Of course, I'll also have more ideas here, but the Sale-A-Bration email projects will be exclusive to my subscribers. Don't miss out!!
