Happy Halloween!

I hope everyone is having or has had (depending on when this uploads!) a frightful Halloween :-)  I am going out with my niece & nephew this year & I am looking forward to it.  I don't collect any candy, but I still enjoy getting dressed up!  This year my sister & her husband are joining us so it is going to be a really fun night!

I created these little goody boxes inspired by CTMH & my fellow consultants & will fill the coffins with treats tonight & give them to the kids...not like they won't get enough I know, but Aunties are special & can get away with giving them more sugar...right Cath???

Enjoy & I will try to remember to post some photos from tonight soon!

Thanks for stopping by!

Avonlea Card WOTG

Very happy to be "back in the saddle" again for offering workshops.  I am in the process of setting up a couple of workshops in our local public school, Iroquois Public, the very school I went to so that will be a lot of fun!  This will be open to the public, but space is limited.

The first workshop of the season is the Avonlea Card WOTG kit...very easy to create & I even mixed it up a little.  You can purchase the kit as is from CTMH through me or you can purchase a modified kit (some embellishments will be different) for a smaller fee (but then you don't get to keep the stamp set) from me.  If you are a beginner, don't worry, I will pre-cut everything for you :-)  This is a great workshop to get you back in the saddle too & to get those creative juices flowing :-)

The date is TBA once I have enough people signed up so if you are interested, please email me & I can send you the pricing details.

Here is the WOTG flyer & this is exactly what you will get if you purchase the WOTG kit:

Here is a photo of the actual cards which I have changed up a little bit by using the other side of the paper on a few of them:

Hope to see you out & thanks for stopping by!

Testing Testing

I know I know, what am I up to?  3 posts today?  I haven't done that in 3 months!  I am trying to learn new things right now, so I do apologize for the massive amounts of posts today!  Massive, funny :-)  So I know how to post on FB & Twitter, learned how to post a video today & now I am trying out the "mail" button that is on the bottom of my posts.  I don't have a gmail account so I can't select from my list of contacts...I have set up a Google group that gives me one email address that I can send out posts too so I am trying to see if that works too...please bear with me as I learn :-)

Did you hear?  I am now a distributor for Tombow!  Right now I am offering their 3 pack roller refills for only $10 (plus shipping & handling if I have to send it out to you).  Guess what the price is at Michael's???  $18 + HST!!  Contact me today if you are interested in getting your hands on one of the industries best adhesives on the market!

Check out the new Home Decor Workshop on the Go Kits that will be available for order on August 1st.  You can bet I will be purchasing both kits & offering the workshops as well so stay tuned for more details...

Retiring Colours...Get them while there are here!

Twice every year CTMH launches an amazing new Idea Book & with the launch of our Fall/Winter Idea Book, there are usually big announcements.  There are too many to list all in one post but one that is of time importance is the retiring colours.  Why do they retire colours you ask?  Well many there are many reasons why; perhaps they are not big sellers, perhaps they are not making anymore kits with them in it or perhaps they want to make room for some new ones...change is always good :-)

As we make room for new colours, some older colours must move on to greener pastures.  Some things in each colour palette are all ready gone so supplies are going fast.  Click on each colour if you are interested.  What's even better about stocking up, is you will qualify for Perfect pairs too!

Here are the colours:

You will notice if you click through the each colour, most of them do not list the cardstock.  If you are wanting any cardstock, you will have to purchase the combo packs:

  • Summer: Holiday Red, Sunflower, Sunny Yellow, Dutch Blue, Moonstruck
  • Spring: Sunkiss Yellow, Key Lime, Heavenly Blue, Lilac Mist, Amethyst, Baby Pink
  • Autumn: Tulip, Garden Green, Spring Iris, Petal, Vineyard Berry
  • Winter: Pansy Purple, Garnet
  • Neutral: Brown Bag, Vanilla Cream, Parchment, Taffy, Grey Flannel, Grey Wool
If you don't want all the other colours of cardstock that are in the combo packs, check out the shade packs (the colours in the brackets are not retiring):
More changes to come so stay tuned!

Queen of Deglect!

I am getting good at being a slacker aren't I! I again, can't believe how long it has been since I posted last but a lot has been happening in my personal life that I had to let some of the fun things in life take a back seat :-( I really hand it to these ladies who post something nearly every day-I just can't do it & I have accepted that! I will post when I can & I am proud to say that I have had some time in the last month to do some actual scrapbooking but unfortunately have not had any time to photograph the artwork yet...soon.

Here is something to keep you of my favourite how to books by where this layout came from & it is magic. I absolutely love the interaction you get with these layouts & how many pictures you can include on one page!

There are also some changes coming to my monthly newsletter...yes, I will get back to that too starting with my April newsletter, but please note that my website has changed to Please also note that there is no www. Did you know that my email address changed too? It is now so make sure you make note of those changes so you can keep receiving updates (when they come!).
