Punch Owl Steph Style

Hello All!  So here are my little treats I made for my Clubbers on Friday - totally CASED from Heather..but made my way since I don't have the 2 1/2" Circle Punch (it's on my wish list!)  I do have the XL Scallop Circle punch so this is what I used for the body.  The tummy is another Scallop then rounded with a 1 3/4" circle punch.  Eyes are 1 " circles and then 1/2 circles.  Beaks were hand gut with glitter paper and the feet are from the Boho flowers punch.  Lastly the heart is from the Heart trio punch (it;s the smallest) and the top of the body is rounded with the 1" circle punch.  They were SUPER easy to put together!  Have a GREAT Monday :)  Steph

Another Country Club Scrappin page

Happy Sunday to you all!  What a beautiful day, hoping to get outside for some playtime today, it looks way too nice to be inside!  Today's page is the third one from our Club class Friday night.  I had a super time, although by 7pm I was ready for bed!  However, once people arrive I always catch my 2nd wind :)  The colours for this page come right from the kit, Not Quite Navy, Pear Pizzazz and So Saffron.  Hope you like and enjoy your Sunday :)  Steph

Punch Owl Valentine treat

Good morning All!  It's an early one here...Hannah off to school, Kayla going to Auntie's and I'm off to teach a Special Needs class in Strathroy...then back to finish prep for Club night - YEAH!  So excited, it's going to be a busy but great day!  I had an awesome night last night (thanks mom for making this possible!)  I learned so much and can't wait to share with you all!  This is a little treat we all received from Heather that she handmade for all of us- how cute is that?  I like to make handmade Valentines for the girls to take to daycare and school, and I'm thinking I'm going to case this little gem :)  I hope you all have a great Friday and thanks for stopping by!  Steph

Miss Kayla

Well for those of you who know Miss Kayla, I think this page says it all!  She is a clown, with attitude, as well as a complete sweetheart :)  For my birthday Kayla decided to give me a late present last night by rejecting her Chinese food we had for after we just sat down to watch Mike and Molly, I got to go clean sheets and through a little monkey into the shower - fun times!  So I thought I would post Kayla's page today as it has been a Kayla day!  This is again from the Country Club Simply Scrappin kit.  I added the new framelits labels using some Cajun craze and DSP.  I also used my Circles #2 die and chipboard to mount the die cut embellishments. FUN!  Hope you like :)  Thanks for stopping by, and here's hoping for a quiet night!  Steph

Country Club Simply Scrappin Page

Hello!  First off...thank you for all the birthday wishes!  You guys are all so kind :)  Well I finally had some time last night and was able to whip up 3 pages...I just have 1 more to go for my Club on Friday and then I'm set!  This one is of little Olivia..isn't she adorable!  I chose this kit for my class as I really love the colours and also that it can be used for just about anything, little girls, boys, pets, whatever!  I'll be posting the other pages tmw, and you'll see how easy it is to make 4 pages out of about 1/2 of a kit.  I used a couple scraps of cardstock to mount the die cut stickers onto, and other than some buttons and ribbon, everything came in the kit...pretty simple :)  Anywho...have to get one more page done so heading downstairs shortly.  Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great night!  Steph

April MDS Calendar page

Happy Friday morning to you all!  We're back from sunny Cuba and getting back to a routine (well sorta!)  We had the most amazing time and I can't wait for hubby to get the pics edited so I can get scrappin.  I absolutely love the atmosphere there...the people are so warm and friendly.  ok back to scrapbooking.... I'm working on re-organizing my scrap room, so other than a winter scrapbook page for the ladies in Strathroy, I haven't gotten much crafting here's another page from my MDS calendar.  This is from last Easter at the Glencoe fairgrounds.  Hannah's friend Kaitlyn came with us to the Easter egg hunt...they had a blast! Thanks for stopping by today...I'll be back tmw with another post!  Have a great day :) Steph

March Calendar Page

Hello all!  Hope you are all having a great day!  We're in frenzy mode trying to get packed for CUBA!!!  So excited, but so nervous at the same time, hard to leave the girlies for that long, but I know they're in good hands!  Today's post is  my March page for my calendar, which I'm really hoping to send to print tonight - YEAH!  These are pics from our annual sugar bush trip to McLaughlins in Komoka - I love their breakfast!  For all the cardmakers and scrapbookers out there, just wanted to let you know that I will be posting more handmade items when I return from Cuba...just been a little hectic, so sharing some MDS over the next few days.  I hope if you don't own MyDigital Studio that you can still be inspired by the pages :)  Take care and thanks for stopping by! Steph

More MDS Calendar

Hello there!  Off to a good start today...some b-day invites on the go, turkey soup is on, kids are playing, so here I am with a quick post!  This is the 2nd page of my calendar.  As I said I am just loving how quickly these come together!  Please note that I am in no way giving up my handmade scrapbooks...I still love them and continue to work on them, I prefer the social scrapbooking to the digital, however, the ease and significantly decrease in time for these digital ones, makes it so handy!  Plus you don't have to have a digital program to duplicate the page, you can easily do it with paper :)  Hope you all have a wonderful day, off to see Chipwrecked with the girlies if the weather co-operates!  Take care, Steph

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year's everyone!  I hope you all have a year full of happiness and health :)  We had a nice night with my sister, Dean and Olivia, aside from hubby selecting the wrong ABC channel, so at 12:03 we realized we had missed the ball dropping!  Oh well :) Today we have a turkey in the roaster, and are having a nice quite New Year's dinner.  Hannah had a sleepover at a friends house and Kayla is enjoying her playroom all to herself, so I'm trying to begin to finish all the things on my to do list.  This year I want to finish more things than I start, be healthier, and enjoy more family time.  So to start off I worked on my MDS calendar, literally took me about 2hrs and I'm almost done.  I used the 'A Year in Review" template and really just had to plunk my pics in and tweek to my own taste.  LOVE it!  This page is from last January when we went tobogganing, it was a blast!  Hope you all had a great day and that your New Year is off to a good start!  Take care and thanks so much for stopping by!  Steph
