Guest Designer...

I was very happy to be chosen to be a Guest Designer for the month of August for "One Crazy Stamper"! They are an online and actual store in Bolton and carry a HUGE amount of stamps, dies and everything you need for papercrafting!
Here is what I submitted:

This is for the August Challenge and I used a stamp from High Hopes Rubber Stamps, Prismacolor pencils, Copics, Whimsy Stamps and Dies.

This second card is one I made and is for my parents for their anniversary this year! They are huge golfers and hopefully they wont take offense! (And hopefully they don't read my blog until after their Anniversary!) I used a stamp from Art Impressions, Prismcolor pencils, Copics.

Hope you enjoy!

Retiring Stuff

Hi Guys,
I have so much information coming regarding the updates to CTMH but here are a few important things....

We are going to a 40 colour pallette and some of these are the 6 news colours! That means that there is a whole bunch retiring!!!!!
I know this is shocking but this means that after Aug 31st you will NO LONGER be able to order products in those colours.

SO, I suggest looking at your stuff and determine if you need anything (IE- reinker, cardstock) and place your order with me by Monday.

Here is a list of retiring colours:

Grey Wool
Grey Flannel
Vanilla Cream
Brown Bag
Baby Pink
Sunkiss Yellow
Key Lime
Heavenly Blue

"Toad"ally Isla!

Fun Layout of my crazy dog- Isla!

I created this layout of my yellow Labrador Retreiver who started jumping around on our beach at the cottage........I finally realized that she was playing with a huge Toad! 
 What a character!

I used my favourite "CoOrdinations" dotted cardstock, Copics, and a great stamp by Kraftin Kimmie.

Throughout the month of July, we’ll have several different product pairings consisting of a favorite My Reflections® paper pack with a corresponding Complement or accessory kit that you’ll be able to get for free! Each pair will be available for only a limited time, and only while supplies last, so when you see one that you want, act quickly! All you need to do is place an ONLINE order of $75 or more in full-priced retail products on my shopping website, and you’ll be able to receive that day’s “perfect pair” for free!
