November Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge- my entry


Hello Crafters and Hello December: I hope this month brings you such joy!


I would like to share with you today my card that I created for the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps' November Challenge. We had to use our September or October stamps that we purchased.  Here is a re-release of The Dragon Queen stamp. I altered her to have her become the Snow Queen. 

She is ICE COLD!

November Challenge Entry - Reindeer Games


Hello Crafters:  It is getting colder by the minute here in Southern Ontario.  No snow yet, that's a good thing. Not for these Reindeers, they love the snow and snow capped trees.  I used a variety of papers, Bazzill card stock in the back ground and some red and white yarn,  

The stamp is:  Reindeer Games by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

C.C. Designs Rubber Stamps Entry

Hello Crafters:  

We have winter here in Southern Ontario but we don't have snow.  That's not a bad thing.  I created this whimsical winter card using the C.C. Designs stamp, "Donuts," by Roberto's Rascals.  I signed up to join in on the fun on the Facebook Group, C.C. Designs Rubber Stamps.  
They were asking for entries for their December Design Team and since I love their stamps, I decided to give it a try.  

Here is my entry for a chance as a December Designer for C. C. Designs Rubber Stamps


These little Rascals are walking home from the Donut Shop and no worries, I put their little pupster on a leash.  

Recipe:
C.C. Designs - Roberto's Rascals rubber stamp
American Crafts' Hot Cocoa 6x6 Paper Pad
Sakura - White Gel pen
Sakura - Clear Gel pen
Mini pearls

The Rascals up close, with rosey cheeks. 

This card is 3D in many areas. I stitched their winter attire with a white gel pen, to add a little dimension as well. 


Mini white pearls were adhered to replicate Snow.

Bela's Scrapbook Buffet - Pre-Designed Layouts Showcase

Hello Crafters:  I hope you are staying warm inside. If you are in Ontario, well we are in for snow in a few days. So that means, more crafty time in my Creating Station. I was busy for a few weeks creating some pre-designed layouts.  I just had so much paper, shhh, said no one ever, that I felt a creative itch to make some layouts.

So here are the ones I created and sold.

NINABROOK PAPER CRAFTERS...Some Kits I Created

I was able to expand my creativity and design for a local store as well as sell Scrapbook and Card making related products. Some of my favourite things. I added some flair by hosting "Themed Crop Events," and I connected with many Crafters this past year. Just seeing the enthusiasm on a Crafter's face, and their excitement on purchasing my Scraplifts and Kits made me happy to know that the pages that they re-created will be displayed in their albums with love. Since June I have been so lucky to design kits for Ninabrook, owned by Tiffany Bond and Kristen Goberis, yes the ladies from Creative Crafting Retreats.
