Super Fantastic Sunday!

Hello Friends!     

I can't believe it is Monday! I am still thinking and looking back at what we did on Sunday with my lady friends and their offsprings. Everyone did an awesome job on their mini camera album, and everyone was pleased on how they all completed the album with 1 hour to spare.




They each got to pick their own designer paper series along with coordinating cardstocks. I had precut them all so that assembly was smooth and easy. Everyone went home with a beautiful mini album, PDF, Assembly Video and a gift for attending.

The company was superb, and the food was amazing!

We had:
  • Perogies
  • European Sausages
  • Chicken Wings
  • Spring Rolls
  • Caesar Salad
  • Chilli
  • Buns
  • Nanaimo Bars
  • Cinnamon Rolls'
  • Popcorn Chips
  • Blueberry Pie
  • Ice Tea
  • Lemon Tea
  • Pineapple Juice
Click on the video to see how much fun we had. Lots of laughters and their offsprings were a big help in creating the same. Great mother/daughter bonding.

Song/Background Music by
Justin Bieber, ft. Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee - "Despacito" 

Interested with upcoming classes, we have the Christmas Class Series coming up. Cost per session is $40. You will receive a stamp set + 9 cards and envelopes + instructions to reduplicate them again. Each month is a different stamp set.
Sept. 9
Oct. 14
Nov. 18
Dec 16 + Party

I could not have pulled this off, and must give big thanks to my sister, Pat. She was behind the scene helping out set up food while I taught. Of course, we happen to be in front of the dessert section!

Shake it Birthday!

Hello Friends!

I am short of birthday cards, and no matter what month I am always in need of birthday cards! 



I cut a 6 x 12 of Whisper White cs, and lay the sheet onto the Multipurpose Adhesive sheet, and die cut the word "Birthday" 3x and stacked it on top of each die cut to create the thickness. The multipurpose sheet makes it easier to attach together quickly without the fuss of having the glue dry. Once the birthday is adhere together, then I used my markers to color in the rainbow colors. You can use your ink pads too if you don't have markers.


You probably want to know how I got the see through ovals! Here is the details. 


  1. Cut (1) 4" x 5-1/4" of Color Theory DP. Align the DP to the base card, and add temporary adhesive to hold the two papers in place. Centre the oval die (#4), and crank it through the big shot. I highly recommend using the magnetic platform and if needed, add tape to hold the die in place to prevent it from moving. Die cut through both thickness. Remove the DP from the base card.
  2. Cut (2) 4" x 5-1/4" of window sheet, and adhere behind the dp and in front of the base card. Set aside.
  3. Add foam tape around the perimeter of the DP and around the oval. Remove the protective backing.
  4. On your base card, add whatever shaker elements you want in the centre, and then carefully lay your DP to the base card. 
  5. Die cut (1) nesting oval dies (#4 and #5) from DP, and adhere to the base card.
  6. Punch 3 balloons from the balloon punch in Whisper White. I colored the balloons in with my markers, and spritz the balloons with water to create the watermark effect. Let dry before adding to the base card. Add silver thread for the balloons.
  7. Attach your assembled "birthday" die cuts with multipurpose glue.
  8. Stamp "Happy" onto remnant basic black with white craft. Add white embossing powder and then heat set it until the powder is melted. Trim, and then attach it to the base card.

Papers: Color Theory DP, Whisper White, Basic Black, Window Sheet, Retired DPs

Stamps: Little Piggy

Inks: So Saffron, Real Red, Island Indigo, Only Orange, Wasabi Green, 

Accessories/Tools: Big Shot, Happy Birthday Thinlits, Balloon Punch, White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Oval Dies, Markers, Silver Thread, Foam Tape, Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets, Stampin' Spritzers

Congrats Bouquet Bunch!

Hello Friends!     

One of my team members reached a title advancement called Bronze Elite and I sent her a congratulations card as well as other goodies for a job well done. It really doesn't take much when you are having so much fun! Come and join my team and see what extra perks you get!



I don't get to see her much as I don't have a car and she doesn't either.

Her box of goodies were sent to her directly, and she should have received this card today.

Copper Foil: 5" x 3-3/4" embossed in Layered Leaves. To get the colored leaves, I used COPIC markers to color the leave foil. Then attach to the Emerald Envy cs cut at 5-1/4" x 4". Then attach to the early espresso base card cut at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", score at 4-1/4".

Die cut two layering ovals with a window sheet to create the shaker part. Add foam adhesive around the oval and not leaving any openings, then glass beads were added.

Die cut the stems from Bouquet Bunch Framelits and secure the stems with multipurpose glue on top of the shaker element.

Die cut the congrats sentiment in copper foil and attach it to the shaker element.

Die cut the flowers from the Bouquet Bunch with the color theory dps. This card was a breeze. Give it a try!






Tools: Big Shot, Nesting Oval Dies, Bouquet Bunch Framelits, Precision Base Plate, Layered Leaves, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits,

Accessories: Foam Adhesive Strips, Multipurpose Glue

Papers: Color Theory DPs, Emerald Envy, Early Espresso, Copper Foil, Window sheet

CCDT Blog Hop - Birthday Bash!

Welcome to the Creative Circle Design Team blog hop. This month's hop is "Birthday Bash!" theme but before I move on, I want to introduce you to two of our newest creative members.


Our first designer, Penny Hanuszak. Her direct blog can be located here http://pennytokensstampinspot.blogspot.ca.


Penny is also a Canadian Independent Demonstrator and lives in Abbotsford, BC. I met Penny through various Stampin' Events, and we got to know each other over the years and became friends. She is very creative and has clean slick lines in her artwork. I can't wait to see what she brings! I am pleased to have her on my team. Welcome Penny!

Our second designer, Juana Ambida, and her blog can be found here http://juanacreate.blogspot.ca/.


Juana is an Australian Independent Demonstrator. Juana has some graphic design background and enjoy combining these influences with paper crafting and card making. Juana belongs to another blog hop group call Stamp Review Crew and hops on the first and third Monday of each month. Her creations and techniques are out of this world, and she will be a great addition to our team. 

Ok ... I am tooting my whistle on this hop! I am over the moon with incredible design. 
A camera shape mini album.


My creative mojos was clicking away! I created this album with a vision in mind ... with lots of interactive pages.

The goal is to use up a package of Designer Paper. I used the Birthday Memories DP for this blog hop. 

As you can see that every other page has some kind interactive page, whether it is interactive pockets or interactive flip pages and the opposite pages can hold 4x6 pictures.








Click on the video to see this in action!


Well what do you think? Do you need a kit ? The kit is a base assembly kit - no stamping needed, it is just paper. If you want to add additional elements, you can stamp and add them to your albums. 

This kit is available to everyone, not just Canadians, but to everyone who reads my post.

Cost is $45 + shipping, and I will precut all your materials. You can assemble this kit in your own home with a step-by-step video tutorial.

You choose any 1 package of Designer Paper valued at $14.50, and 1 package of color cardstock valued at $10.00 as the base of your choice.

Here is what you get:
  • Materials to complete 1 album. Size 8-1/4" (w) x 6" (h) x 2-1/2" (d). The album will hold 40+ pictures. Every second page has a fun interaction settings. The latch is adjustable allowing the pages to expand.
  • 1 package of DSP of your choice
  • 1 package of coordinating color cardstock of your choice
  • 5 sheets of Whisper White cardstock
  • 10 Neodymium Magnets (very strong mini magnets)
  • step-by-step instructions
  • how to video for future albums
  • patterns (PDF, SVG and silhouette)
As an added BONUS - if you don't have a cutting machine, I would be happy to cut the materials for you should you wish to make more. Just email me at liz.holloway@gmail.com.

Please allow 4 weeks for delivery.

Now lets hop over to our next designer! by clicking on the inLinkz list. I am at 1. Hop onto Sandy's blog who is number 2 on the list!
