Monster Hugs

This monster reminds me of Sully from Monsters, Inc. Do you see it? I wanted my monster to sparkle and it was so easy to do that with the Clear Wink of Stella. Make sure when you apply the Wink of Stella to your project not to squeeze very hard or else the sparkle might be over powering.

Supplies
Stamps: Yummy in My Tummy
Colours: Crumb Cake, Basic Grey, Mint Macaroon, Basic Black
Accessories: Clear Wink of Stella, Basic Black Baker's Twine

Onstage Toronto Swap #1

My upline had an event at her house the weekend before OnStage so that those of us attending OnStage in Toronto could create/finish our swaps! It was very productive for me, I was able to complete 20 cards using the Always Adventure stamp set. It was a lot of Big Shot cutting but so worth it.


Supplies
Stamps: Always an Adventure
Colours: Garden Green, Soft Sky, Marina Mist, Crushed Curry, Soft Suede, Whisper White
Accessories: Outdoor Adventure Framelits, Stampin' Dimensionals

Easter Baskets

I really enjoy making thank you gifts for our all day crop attendees. For the April 1st crop I made these cute baskets. Inside I put some premade Easter basket filler and some Carrot Cake Kisses - yum! They really do taste like carrot cake.

The starburst is the really pretty glitter paper that you can earn during Sale-A-Bration!

Supplies
Stamps: March Paper Pumpkin stamps, Woodgrain background
Colours: Soft Suede, Whisper White

This year Stampin' Up! celebrates 15 years in Canada! Woot! These chocolate cupcakes they had to help celebrate the anniversary were very yummy.


Here I am near the end of the long day of learning & fun!

April Crop - Party Animal!

Do you have trouble with portrait pictures in your scrapbook pages? I do! I find it hard to mix them into my Project Life scrapbooks. But a little planning before printing your pictures can help make it easier. This page uses Design 4 from Variety Pack 1.

These Balloon dies are great for the inside of a card as a pop-up feature but they work well on card fronts as well! The Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies have these cool balloon cut outs. It's best to adhere them using the Fine-tip glue.

The above 2 samples were designed by Lisa Henderson. She used a piece of my fav design found in the Party Animal Designer Series Paper - the Emerald Green with animals wearing party hats! The 3D item has a sucker in it!
You can join us on May 6th in support of Relay for Life - sign up here by visiting Crop Kingston's Facebook page - we'd love to see you there!

Supplies
Stamps: Balloon Adventures, Layered Letters Alphabet
Colours: Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Emerald Envy, Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Kraft
Accessories: Party Animal Designer Series Paper, Balloon Banquet punch, Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies, Basic Black Baker's Twine, Stampin' Dimensionals
