You're My Best Mate

Tuesday, December 31, 2013


I am preparing samples made from Stamp sets out of the NEW Occasions Catalogue.

This card is made using the Hexagon Hive Thinlets Die.

The paper looks like this when you cut it out. The blue paper (Pacific Point), not the
Orange (Calypso Coral)

Can you imagine all the different things you can make with this.  I'm so excited about it.

Stamp Set:  Hello Sailor

Colours:  Pacific Point, Calypso Coral, Soft Sky, Summer Starfruit

DSP:  High Tide

Other:  Hexagon Hive Thinlets Die
            Apothecary Accents Framelits
             Rhinestone Basic Jewels

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

You Mean The World To Me


This one is for Irv.

I had to google what it meant if you say to someone "you mean the world to me"

I figured you would say it to someone you love but I wanted to know what others
thought it meant.

Apparently if you say this phrase then you are saying the person is as important
to you as the entire world.  You care for them as much or more than all the wealth
in the world.  That they are your world and your interests revolve around them.
You love or really like them.  It is a very good thing to be told.

Irv, I love you so much, you mean the world to me and I hope to see the world while holding your hand.

                 Crumb Cake Card Stock, ink pad, and dauber

Quick and Easy Card


This is a quick and easy girlie card.    Yes, there is still time to whip up a few
cards and get them in the mail.  This one if for my daughter, Laryssa.
She loves bright and colourful.

The stripes were created using the stripes stencil from the  Stampin' Up! Build A Banner Simply Created Kit  from the Holiday Catalogue.  ONLY available until January 2, 2014.

Item 133507 Build a Banner Simply Created Kit  $24.95


I put a bit of non permanent adhesive on the back of the stencil and placed it on the front of
the Real Red card front.  I used a sponge dauber and dabbed Whisper White craft ink.
The best part is the fun of peeling the stencil back off.  You just have to shout out
loud…..VOILA!
Now you are probably thinking that looks cool but your stencil must be a mess.

Remember my motto…..Crafts Forever, Housework Whenever

If it wasn't easy to clean I wouldn't want it.  Take the stencil to a sink, turn on the tap

and shout out loud…. VOILA!
Back to the card.  Whip out your Festive Flurry Dies and Coordinating Stamp Set from
the Holiday Catalogue.  ONLY available until Jan 3, 2014.

Using Versamark one snowflake image on Pink Pirouette Card Stock and one snowflake image

Cut out snowflakes using the Framelit Dies.

Attach snowflakes to the card front using Stampin' dimensionals.
