Summer is here!

So aside from the fact that my allergies are making me feel like death and there is so much pollen in the air it looks like it is snowing, I am happy to see summer's arrival :-) And only 3 more school days left, yippee!
Here are a couple of "Splendor" cards I did up for a home gathering I'm doing on July 8th - flowers that don't make me sneeze!

May's Cherry-O! Workshop kit

Well my goodness, I just skipped over May altogether didn't I?! I'll say it was my birthday and I took the month off :-)
But to try and do some catch up here, these are the pages the hostess clubs did for the month of may, using the Cherry-O kit from Close To My Heart. What a delicious paper pack, I just LOVE it! I'll post some more later, but I used up the ENTIRE kit! Hope you enjoy as much as I did, and if you'd like to purchase the Workshop kit for $35.50 it is available until August 30th. Just post with your contact info.
Andrea :-)

Veranda Level 1 Workshop - April 20th

Want to get 4 pages done in two hours or less? Join me for the Veranda Level 1 Scrapbooking Workshop!

When: Tuesday, April 20th
Time: 7:30pm - 9:30pm
Cost: $25
Where: My place
*email me to register, andreagreen@shaw.ca, space is limited.*








The pages use a CTMH Level One My Reflections kit, which can be thought only for the beginner scrapper, with their 4 pre-designed layouts and coordinating My Stickease, but they are fabulous for any level. A great way to get a project done quickly, and by simply adding a few more coordinating embellishments and stamping you can take a Level One straight to a Level Three - faster, simpler, and easier!

With these "Veranda" (X7119A) pages my goal was to use as much of what comes in the kit as possible. One way was by even using the negative images of the My Stickease (note the scallop border).

Hoppy Easter!

So I'm a little late in the game here, but hope everyone had a very Happy Easter :-) My kidlets did about a gazillion egg hunts today and are tucked in snuggly with bellies full of chocolate. And two new Goldfish - Daisy and Lighting - have positioned themselves in the family :-)

Custom Wall Canvas

This is a 16x20 canvas I made for a fellow CTMH consultant. It uses CTMH's Silhouette paper, Just Blooms Big Pinks flowers, Black Designer ribbon, and Colonial White accents. I just LOVE the Silhouette paper, it's beautiful and goes with so much. This is the second canvas I've done with that paper and now I need to make one for myself to keep!
Hope you like it Lacey!

The whole Caboodle Kit!

Here are the pages for the March Caboodle kit! The kit is geared towards little boys but I found the colours worked really well with alot of my summer photos (especially that Dora slip n' slide!). They would also be great Easter pages too.









You can order this kit anytime before April 30th. For only $35.50 you get the Level 2 Caboodle paper packet, Dimensional Elements Booksmart (white chipboard sooooo easy to alter!), "This Way" stamp set (arrows, jax, and circles), and a full colour workshop flyer. Add on the Designer Ribbon in Sweet Leaf for $9.25 and/or the NEW metal Tiny Tabs for $4.75 to complete the look :-)

I know, I know!

I know, I'm slacking off! I have a bunch of photos to post for the March workshop with Caboodle and the April one with Veranda (which I just finished tonight and it's gorgeous!!). Hoping to have them up tomorrow (thurs), so please do check back :-)

Go Canada!

Go Canada Go! What an exciting time in Vancouver right now. The kids and I were sure to catch the torch relay as it came thru our town last week.



My daughter was so excited that it was a girl carry the torch! Too many people crowded in front of me so the best shot I got was the back of her unfortunately, but it still preserves the very cool moment!



And we even got to see her pass the flame to the next runner! This is the best shot I got of that, but they did a little dance around the intersection, it was cute.



And if you haven't seen Melanie Harmsma's AMAZING youtube video on the Close To My Heart Acrylix stamps yet be sure to log onto:

This is a contest for CTMH and the video with the most views wins $500! Go Melanie Go!

A Sweet Valentine



These are the suckers I made up for my daughter's Valentine's party at Kindergarten :-)

Then to bring them up to a Level Three I added CTMH's new Filigree Charms (Z1269), Spring Blossom Just Blooms paper flowers (Z1266), Antique Copper brads and Bigger brads (Z1217), and various stamps.<

Photos added!

Here are the pages I'll be doing tonight with my hostess club - with photos! I have been trying hard to get photos on all the layouts I do for the clubs and workshops so I don't end up with a stack of unfinished work . . . sound familiar to anyone??! The only hard part for this layout though was deciding what photos NOT to put on, the paper just seems to go with so much.



And just a couple more of my baby boy with the last of my You Rock paper . . .




Thanks for looking!

You Rock Hostess Club #4 Layout

For those of you joining me at the Hostess Club tomorrow evening (Thurs), this is the layout we will be completing. It is pictured here without the title and photos but I have another one with title and photos to post later :-) For those of you not in the hostess club tomorrow night, well here is some more inspiration to put that You Rock kit to good use! This layout is called "Treasure Tags" and can be found in the Cherish How-To book. Am I sick of this paper yet?? No way!

February's Workshop Kit - Topstitch

I am loving the versatility of this Topstitch paper! Although the layouts I have done below are very "girly" - a dose I needed after the "boy" pages of the You Rock kit this month - if you flip the pinky pages over they are brown or blue so for those of you with only boys to scrap you can enjoy this paper just as much!

You Rock! Scrapbook Workshop

Yay! My order from the NEW Spring Idea Book finally arrived and I've been "working" on my pages for the You Rock workshop kit featured this month. The colours are so uplifting! I used photos of my son and my cousin, two boys who really do ROCK!
The second layout if just waiting for a photo enlargement of my cousin :-)
