It's about time!!

Finally, I have had the chance to sit down and get some stamping done....I am a liitle out of practice! Anyway here are my first ever StampingBella cards....I must admit that I am not overly enthused about these two projects....not happy with the colors and design....that's what I get for not stamping in almost 2 months!

Wow! It has been a long time..... my hopes of having a fun summer filled with stamping hasn't quite happened. I have been so busy with work, and home life that I really haven't sat down and attempted any projects =( However! Good news is that I am no longer a Bella virgin! I order several bellas last week and they arrived yesterday! I am hoping tonight I will finally sit down and get back to stamping!! I can't wait to use my bella stamps! I will be sure to post any pictures as soon as I get one project completed!!

~ Sweet Stuff ~

This is one of my first attempts to make a tri-fold card. I found the tutorial here at SCS!! It took me a minute or so to get the folding under control! Other than that....this card is very easy to make and they are adorable! I have already given away three of these cards to my friends! (I know I should have taken pictures before hand! LOL!) Have u tryed the tri-fold???

My First Coaster Album!

Ok let me tell you....I never knew it would be so difficult to find plain old coasters! I went to all the dollar stores and big box stores such as Wal-Mart and Zellers trying to find basic coasters.....No Luck! Thankfully last week when I went to a going away party for some girls at my work, the bar tender gave me a pile of the round coasters! I'd prefer if they were square...but I will keep on looking! Anyway, I had to try and make something with I made this little photo keeper of me as a child with my grandparents! Hope u like it!

I'm Back!! =)

Yeah!! Exams are over...let the summer begin!!! Thanks to everyone who stopped by and has been patient while I've been away!

Well I started going through my pictures today....One of my summer projects will be to make a scrapbook of me and my grandparents! My grandparents who are now watching over me from above raised me as a child from the age of eight months! I love and miss them both so much, but I am blessed to have had them for parents! The love and wisdom they taught me as a child and as a young adult I will never forget, I look forward to passing it on to my own children one day=)

Wedding Day!!

Finally it has arrived! My finaces sister is getting married today and I am her Maid of Honor....After months of planning it is here! I am so excited for everyone that I could barely sleep last night....hence the reason why I am blogging at 7Am! LOL!!!

Unfortunately all the 'summer' weather we had last week has left us and been replaced with snow....But what can you do! I guess that is to be expected with a spring wedding! Especially in Canada! =) But the fresh layer of snow on the ground will be beautiful and serene.... stamping for today =( that will have to wait.......

Here's to the Bride and Groom! Congratulations Crystal and Jeremy!

Cool Caribbean! I love it!

I absolutely love this color! This card is pretty basic but the SU paper cool caribbean is such a nice color I just had to use it! Makes me feel 'springy' despite the fact I woke up this morning to see a nice blanket of snow! For the past two weeks everyone has been wearing shorts, and tanks as if it were the middle of summer! Well.... not today! I just hope that the snow dissipates and the cold weather too because I am in my fiance's sister's wedding on Saturday! It's going to be cold wearing strappy shoes and an open back dress when it's winter! LoL!!

Despite my wishfulness of warmer weather....I am happy to see winter sticking around for now....As many of you know scientists are warning that the planet is facing a catostrophic crisis right now.....Global Warming.....It is our responsibility to protect our earth for future generations but we must act now. Former President elect Al Gore produced an award winning documentary titled "An Inconveniet Truth" it's a must see!! Along with watching the movie you can visit the website:

Ok so I must say that Michael's has 50% off all of their designer paper as well as cardstock! OMG! I was in heaven this morning! So much fun! I feel like a kid in the candy store when picking up new printed paper! I love it!

Anyway, I came home and had to make some cards.....(yes I know I have exams and yes I know that I should be studying........Meh!.....gotta take a break sometime! LOL!) I love the 'All I Have Seen' stamp very pretty! Hope you like it!

My First Altered Clipboard!

It is the end of the school year and exams are only two weeks away....Technically...I should be studying however I took a little break today to do some stamping....I was really wanting to try a mini coaster scrapbook however I didn't have much luck in finding cork coasters..... Instead, I decided to try the SCS challenge to alter a clipboard. (

This project was fun, quick and easy! I am happy how this clipboard turned out, and the possibilites are endless! I think I will be making some of these as gifts for family and friends!!

A Little late!

Sorry it has been so long since I have posted! It is the end of the school year and that means deadlines! Ugh!! However I am happy to say that for the first time last night I sat down and did some stamping!! I will try and post those pictures later today!

Is anyone else in anticipation for the new Stampin Up Idea Book & Catalogue? I can't wait!!! That means $$$$$$$ to be spent! LOL! You have to enjoy some things in life and stamping is just one of them!!!!

Think Spring!

Well the month of march has rolled in like a lion! (Apparently it is suposed to go out like a lamb? LoL!) I had never heard of this saying until my friend Natalia explained it to me the other day....that must be the same as the Irish saying Erin go Bragh! LoL! I had never heard of that before either!

Anyway God Bless Canada!.... I woke up this morning and the sun was shining bright, the next thing I know it is a blizzard outside only for it to start raining which was followed by some sunshine and more snow until now that is....we have freezing rain! Yucky!

I am happy to say that I bought a new digital camera and am now able to share my *creativity* with everyone! I must say that looking around at everyone's blog I sometimes feel a little intimidated by all the amazing work I see!

However, in saying that.....I enjoy stamping and the result of my own little *creations*....... Because I am starting out with stamping it is going to take some time to build a collection of stamp sets...But the possibilities of creating cards with the stamp sets I have now are endless! That's the great thing about are never restricted with what you can create!

Anyway before I write a book it is dinner time! Then essay time..........BlaH! I can't wait for school to be over! Then I will be free to stamp stamp stamp all summer long!

Here we go!

Ok... I must say that I am thrilled to have now started my own blog! What fun this is going to be! With this blog......I expect that from time to time I may submit my own two cents worth of opinion on various worldly matters...I am a political science major student...what can I say.....

However! Stamping is of most importance here!!! I am so exicted to begin sharing my stamping with everyone! It's funny, when I was still in high school a teacher of mine invited me to start up a stamping club with her! I thought she was crazy but I was wrong....the first time I stamped...I was absolutely ADDICTED!! We ended up getting some other girls involved in making and then selling our stamped cards with all the money being donated to the Children's Hospital! Well time passed me by and stamping was a thing of the past until......I was introduced to Stampin Up! WoW! Let me tell you....I haven't stopped since I discovered the wonderful world of Stampin Up products! I went to a party with my boss from work and the addiction has started all over again!! Yippee!!

Just a little side note! Because this is a new is going to take me a few days to get everything set up....but I promise I will get my pictures posted real soon!! So for the time being.....we are Under Construction! LOL!
