Yesterday I joined a bunch of local women for a crop my friend Diana was hosting, to raise money for the memory loss foundation. It was a great opportunity to see so many of my scrappy friends. I didn't get to complete anywhere near what I wanted to accomplish (isn't that always the case?). I did complete this mixed media card for one of my sons friends. Albeit a very simple card, it was a great chance to whip out the paints! Here I used Bazzil shimmer card stock as the base. I then just added a tag diecut and trimmed down another tag for the "ribbon". The cupcake was from Barely Essentials and came as raw chipboard and canvas. I coloured both with Distress Paints - so quick and easy. After it dried I glued in seed beads for sprinkles. Voilà- easy little mixed media card.

I've been truly a neglectful blogger. I can not believe how quickly time passes but here we are in 2014! Anyhow I figure now is better than never to get this blog up and running again!
So I thought I'd share with you my latest find at Pointer Scrapbooking today. I'm so excited to work with new collections from Pink Paislee and Bella Blvd. I'm most excited about those hexagon stamps!

So to start, I had this piece of chipboard from the back of a paper pad, that through serendipity of paint on fabric, ended up with this great background. What can't be seen from the photo is all the great texture. Love lumpy bumpy!

This past weekend, I had a fantastic time participating in Scrapfest in Kitchener. I am lucky to join the team at Pointer Scrapbooking and we set up the booth on Friday afternoon. After the mad frenzy of setting up the booth, I was up to do the first Make n' Take. This session I showcased this box and walked participants through using stencils, Distress Inks and the Scor-Pal tool.
Love this stencil I used from the Crafters's Workshop!
While at the show I shopped a little, I could not resist getting some of these paints from Ranger to play with soon! Love all the properties and will report back what I've been up to shortly! I haven't even opened them and I know I NEED more colours!

I even got into the groove of things and put on my handmade Wonder Woman tiara and t-shirt. I think every
So was wandering Michaels trying to find yarn and look what I found - this paper pad! Which of course had to come home with me and my luck it was 40% off this week. Wahoooooo!
Will try and get the layouts done to share with you. I'm so inspired by this paper now!
Also thought I would share some of my layouts from my Rapid Fire Class I teach at Pointer Scrapbooking. These are my layouts for January and February. |If you are ever in the area and have an incline to finish 6 layouts in about 2 hours, come join me.
