Scenic Season

Hi All!  Hope you are having a wonderful day.  I'm a little under the weather today, a lovely sinus infection has found it's way to me and so I'm having a nice quiet day, and will be off to bed shortly!  Today's card is one using the set 'Scenic Season', a simple set but one that I love.  Colours are Naturals White, Garden Green, and Pool Party. I stamped with versa-mark and then heat embossed with silver embossing powder.  The edges I ruffed up and then added some Whisper White satin ribbon.  Very simple :)  Hope your day is better than the weather here!  Take care and thanks for stopping by :) Steph

More from the Simply Scrappin kits!

Hello all!  I must admit I had hoped to post some more current projects but I am behind in my photos, it's on my weekend to-do list!  So with any luck I will some cool new things to show you all :)  In the meantime, here is another page that I used with the 'I Wish" simply scrappin kit from last year.  Colour are Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist and Very Vanilla. This page was super easy to put together and there isn't alot on it, as I didn't want to take away from the pics of little Hannah, isn't she cute?  Anywho...this will be a short post but I hope to be back soon!  Have a great Friday and for those who are participating in the US shopping - enjoy all the deals!  Thanks for stopping by :) Steph

A Merry Day!

Happy Sunday morning to you all!  I have had such a wonderful weekend so far!  It started off with the Glencoe parade...I love the night parades with all the lights, and I love watching the girl's faces light up :)  After the parade was Club night - I love Club nights!  We made some super cute gift card holders which I will post soon, just have to upload the pics!  The on Saturday was the Largie Sunday School fundraiser - what a GREAT group of women!  I had a great time stamping with you all and look forward to a spring event - thanks :)  Then it was off to buy winter boots for the kiddies.  So now before the day gets too crazy I thought I would sneak on and get a post up!  This page is done using last year's Christmas kit, but could easily be done using other paper and colours.  The colours are Always Artichoke, Marina Mist, Cherry Cobbler, and Very Vanilla.  I used an outline from a Chipboard snowflake and some Craft Cherry Cobbler ink to colour it (when using chipboard it's always best to use Craft ink, it shows up much better) Then I sprinkled Iridescent Ice onto the snowflake outline and used my heat gun to emboss...on the pic it doesn't really show, but in real life it really shines!  Then in the centre I added some Rhinestones and voila :)  Hope you like :)  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your Sunday :)

Star Album - Using Simply Scrappin Kit

HELLO :)  I finally have pics back!  Only catch is I have to use hubby's laptop and have him put them on a flashdrive which I can then put into our new (but again not new!) computer. Dear Santa, please send me a current updated laptop :)  OK, onto my post...some of you have already seen this but I thought I would still post it.  We'll be making these at Club night in December and I'm super excited, I really love the colours and how easily they come together.  All it is is1/2 of a Simply Scrappin kit, plus 2 sheets of 12x12 cardstock BUT you MUST use sticky strip!  I have used other adhesives and have already had to re-glue it.  Sticky strip is a must )  The kit I used for this album is the one in the current Holiday Mini (Christmas Jingle I believe).  I added some Riding Hood Red ribbon and Voila!  Super easy and a WONDERFUL handmade gift for Christmas :)  Thanks so much for stopping by, if you have any questions about the album please feel free to e-mail me at stampaholicsteph@gmail.com.  Have a great night!

Technical Difficulty

Hello all :(  I'm sending out a sad face as I am sorry that I still don't have a creative post, and it's now been a week!  I have lots of projects to share, but can't upload the pics on our new (yes I said new) but there's a catch, gently used piece of C-R-A-P- (for lack of a better word) computer!  UGHHHHH!  Yes it's a little faster, but I would REALLY love to be able to upload my pics onto my computer...really, at this day in age is that so much to ask for?  My hope is that hubby will have this solved in the next day or so, and so then I will catch you up on all that's been created in the past week or so!  Hope all is well, and thanks so much for stopping by,  I appreciate your patience while we get this sorted out!  Take care and hope to be back soon!  Steph

Beautiful Season

Hello all!  Well I had hoped to post this card sooner, but had some technical difficulties.  Our home computer kicked the bucket and my laptop doesn't have a card reader to upload pics (yes it's ancient!) so we now have a new computer - yeah, but I'm missing all my shortcuts from the old one, anywho at least it's back!  Had a great weekend, amazing weather for November!  Yesterday we had a crop day at the Legion, thanks to all who came out and a special thank you to my mom and sister for all their help.  Oh yeah the card!  This is quickly becoming one of my favourite sets (actually it;s my mom's!) Colours are Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler.  I stamped the bird with Basic Black onto Naturals White.  I tried Stazon but I didn't find it was dark enough.  I used watercolour crayons to colour and a Cherry Cobbler marker for the berries.  The Garden Green card stock was dry embossed with the Finial Embossing folder using the Big Shot.  Some Early Espresso quilted ribbon and Dazzling Details and voila!  Hope you like!  Thanks for stopping by :)
