I'm Back :)

Hello All!  Well I made it back safe and sound from the great city of Timmins.  14 1/2 hours in our truck and we all survived!  Needless to say, I have not had a chance to create anything, and am having withdrawals!  so I quickly did up this page on MDS using another template from their Sunny Days kit...pretty cute eh?  These are my two munchkins posing for daddy on a rock in North Bay.  There's a park near his Aunt's house so we went there for some play time after supper.  We were lucky enough to see a little doe on our way back. 
On another note...if you came to my scrapbook class of the 4 layouts, I'll be posting those pages shortly in case you needed to have a peek at them to finish up.  Also, I catalogues are on their way and should be here in the next 10 days.  And lastly, for anyone interested I'm having a Scrapbook day Saturday August 21 from 9-9 at the Glencoe Legion.  $15.00 per person, e-mail me for details at  Have a good one and thanks for stopping by!  Steph

Very Thankful -#3

Hello! How do you like my new look?  Once again I must  say I learned so much from my MDS (My Digital Studio) class on Tuesday, thanks again to Heather Summer, you're amazing!  I have been trying to create my own blog header for quite some time now, and now I know!  On to today's post and sorry it's another dark photo.  Reno is almost done, just have to put the new flooring in, I will then have  a nice well lit place for my pics!  So here's yet another sample of what you can make with the Very Thankful set.  This time I stamped using Black staz-on and coloured using chalks and blender pens. Paper is Kraft, Taken with Teal, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive and Whisper White.  DSP is from the Sweet Pea set and Welcome Neighbour SAB.  Hope you like this one too!  Steph

Bonus MDS Post!

Hello again!  So here it MDS page, and yes I just made it, so in 20minutes I have created a beautiful scrapbook page!  I really have to admit again I wasn't a fan of the whole digital scrapbook thing, but now that I have it I absolutely love it!  I just might be able to get caught up on some scrapbooking!  I used the Sunny Day custom page that comes with the MDS along with many other amazing features.  I encourage you all to try it and see how you like it!  Have a good night and thanks for stopping by!  Steph

Very Thankful - #2

Hello all!  Have had an amazing couple of days!  Monday night I met a new group of ladies who were a complete blast...thanks again for having me!  We each made 3 cards and they are now my newest club members - yeah!  And yesterday I was able to attend a great class on My Digital Studio, put on by Heather Summers - it was wonderful!  I learned so much and will try and post an MDS page later.  Onto today's project, here's another sample using the Very Thankful set.  Colours are Kraft, Rich Razzleberry (so glad this colour is staying!), and Old Olive.  I also used the Fine Flourish background stamp to add a little more design to it.  The DSP is Cottage Wall - again you need to order this by June 30th as it will no longer be available.  To stamp the Thanks So Much I used markers so that I could get both the Olive and Razzleberry on, very simple!   Before I go I just have send another shout out to my mom and sister for always lending a hand when I need it, and to my friend my Mel who's always helping me grow my business.  My sister is also my Pampered Chef consultant and Mel's also my Epicure Consultant, will have their info up on my sidebar shortly, please contact them if you are in need of some kitchen inspiration! Have a great day, Steph

Very Thankful

Good afternoon everyone.  Long time no post, I know!  We're in the middle of transforming our home office into a portrait time has been more scarce than usual.  I;m hoping once the reno is done, hubby will show me a few tricks on the new camera.  I love the clarity of it, but am finding it hard to get the right I am still learning.  on with today's card...this is from the Very Thankful set which donates $2.00 from every set sold to the Ronald McDonald House Charity.  This is a great organization which helps family's to stay close to their little ones when care is required at the hospital.  It offers affordable accommodations for all and helps to ease a very stressful time.  Paper is Kraft, Whisper White, Rose Red, Taken with Teal DSP and Old Olive.  I stamped the little boy a few times using stamp-a-ma-jig and coloured them in using markers.  I used the Scallop Border Trim punch for the Old Olive cardstock and also added a bow using 1/4" Old Olive ribbon.  Hope you like!  This set is retiring so if you would like one for yourself you'll need to order before June can order online at , I'll have a couple more samples using this set to post later this week.
Take care and thanks for stopping by.  Steph
