Hey Friends. 

Here's a layout I created using the BoBunny Mama Razzi 2 line. I luv this paper!

Do you create your layouts using pics or without?
I usually do it without. 
This past weekend I think we influenced one of our gals to try it that way as well. It is kinda sorta freeing. Try it!


Are you going to Crop and Create Cornwall?  You will have a blast!  These ladies know how to crop in style!  
Check it out!   http://www.scrapbookandcards.com/crop-and-create-cornwall-2013

Hello Friends!

We hope you all had a fantastic long weekend and enjoyed the fabulous weather!

Great tools to add to your stash are stamps!
They can be used for anything!  Creating images on paper, foam, into clay....
They can be used to alter the look of paper or make your own pattern paper from plain card stock. 
Lots of possibilities. 

We have lots of neat stamps in store. And more coming. 
We can also try and order in a stamp for you.  Please have all the information though. It is impossible to order a stamp from just a description or a picture. We would need the company name and item or upc codes. 

We will be doing some great fun things with stamps on our Make & Take Sundays and Technique Classes.  Stay tuned for some samples. 

Happy Creating!

Deb

Hey there Friends!

Did you all enjoy that crazy weather yesterday?
I hope you all remembered your Mommas. Or were remembered if you have the amazing privilege to be one. 

Check out this neat layout i found on sweetshoppedesigns.com. 

A few techniques used with different materials to create a great layout. 

I luv the burlap added in the background.
 The circles look as though they were done with a stencil.  You could use ink, paint or texture paste, depending on the look you were aiming for. 

Thank you to all the fabulous ladies whom joined us for the all day crop on Saturday. Such a great group!  Even if i had to sneak into the kitchen to listen to my country music! ;-) (when Ronnie wasn't scaring me!)

I hope you all have a fantastic day!

Hello Friends!

Have you discovered these yet?  
Did you ever use stickles?  Very similar, but I find the Zazz sparkle glue easier to handle.  It has a nicer pointed tip and doesn't clump like the stickles tend to do. 

Its an easy and great way to add some sparkle or simple bling to your pages. 

They are currently sold in packs of 3. And we've got 'em! ;-). Lots of colours. Come on in and see!

Im excited for the all day crop on Saturday!  Are you joining us?  Come on in and register, or give us a call. There is still space left. Bring a friend!

Hey Friends!

Do you have a glue gun?  Do you use it often?  Do you use it for scrapbooking?

Nah not for gluing. For all sorts of other stuff. 
Make your own stencils, masks, melt and mould your own elements. 
Lots of possibilities other than just gluing. ;-). 

So, I challenge you to use your glue guns. :-)

Who's joining us Saturday for the all day crop?  There is still space left, and if you bring a friend there could be a bonus incentive. ;-)

Hey Friends!

These sponge daubers are a handy little tool for inking. 

They make it easy to transfer ink to your projects and extend the life of your ink pads. 

I am an inker. I ink every edge on my projects. I like the look it gives. You can be as clean or as sloppy as you wish. Depends on the look you're aiming for.  
When you use a brown based ink it can give your projects an aged look. Or you can pull a colour out of your project and make it pop by inking in that specific hue. 

Come on in for a visit and see whats new and exciting!  
Theres new stamps, inks, masks, embossing folders, paper pads.....so many goodies!


Garage Sale this Saturday!!!!!!!!

Well My Friends,  I was going to tell you all about my new fabulous We R Memory Keepers tote I bought from the store but Ronnie beat me to it!
She scooped it up right quick!  I don't know if we even got to put it on the floor! ;-)

Thats how great this tote is!  When we saw it at CHA, we thought 'Yup, gotta have it!'
And it's only $119.99!

There is even an add on tote to go with it if you wish for $39.99

I was going to show you how it will carry almost everything you would need for a weekend crop. I say almost really for me and those who pack too much or like to play in mixed media. It will easily accommodate the typical load any scrapper would require.  
I could pack everything I would need in it and the add on tote. And in fact had planned on it until Miss Ronnie beat me to it!!! ;-)

Do you want one?  There are more on the way. Let us know and we can order you one as well. 

Come in and see all the other new stuff we've got in. 

Don't forget we are at the Creative Festival this weekend if you are in the Toronto area. 

Weekend after this is our garage sale!!!

Hi!

Happy Earth Day!

Next time you work on a Mixed Media project like a canvas, tag or art journal why not use some items you have around the house. Reuse!

Envelopes
Flyers
Magazines
Nuts/Washers
Napkins - patterned
Tissue paper
Books
Old letters
Postcards
Telephone books
Newspapers

Use items you have in the kitchen or garage to make imprints in paint.
Use old gift cards to spread paint around (I love this technique).
Press flowers.
Use the cut off end of a bunch of celery to make flowers with paint.
Make your own stamps out of erasers.
Use lids to make circles - just paint around the bottom and press like a stamp.
Use an old book to make an art journal.

There are so many possibilities!

Have fun playing!
Michelle

Hey Friends!

Doesn't this feel more like April!? 

I like to use everyday items in my layouts to add just that little bit extra. 

I found this picture on line. Coffee filters were dyed and used to get the ruffle effect. 

I also like to make flowers out of them. 
So fun and very inexpensive. 

This will be used in an upcoming card class. Stay tuned. ;-)

Hey Friends!

Take a look at what Case did with this new line!

I like how she placed her journaling just behind and to the side of her picture. 

Its a straightforward entry of how she enjoyed the day. 
So if ever ya just don't have that perfect quote or know what to write, tell it like it is. ;-)

Are you ever afraid to write on your layouts?  

Dont forget you can write it out ahead and use it as an element. Or if you're like me and don't particularly like your own hand writing, use your computer. Or do you have an old typewriter?  Always fun!

Come in and check out all this new stuff!

Hey There Friends!

Do you own one of these gadgets?

I'll be honest, I was completely skeptical at first. 
Why would I need a bulky gadget such as this to dispense double sided tape?
Is it not easier and cheaper to just grab a roll and do it myself?

I caved after using a friends. I really do enjoy using this tool. Not just for creating my mini books and albums, but for card making and layouts as well. Ive even used it on my mixed media canvas. 

The tape is very good and sticky. I've made embellishments using this and it holds solidly. 
The bonus is its a one hand tool. So instead of trying to hold together you project with pressure from your arm and elbow, you hold your creation in one hand and the 'gun' in the other. 

I was worried about wasting tape with it, but I haven't at all.  The tape is not left where it will come in contact with anything if you shove it in your crop travelling bag. 

We sell this nifty gadget. Come on in and check it out!

Are you joining us for the retreat this weekend?  Cant wait to see you there. 

If you are not joining us, come on into the store. We'd luv to see you!  Come see all the new goodies!

And don't forget about the Creative Festival the following weekend!
And then the weekend after that is our big garage sale!  Are you participating?  Or are you all excited to see what kinda goodies and deals you can score!  ;-)
Happy Creating!

Hello Friends!

Have you ever stitched on your cards or layouts?

It's a great way to add texture and dimension. 

If you don't have any nifty tools that create designs or don't want to drag out your sewing machine, trace a cut out you do have. 

Just like this picture. Place your template where you want to stitch your design, poke your stitch holes with a paper piercer, or a stylus works too. Then thread your needle and stitch through your design. 

We do have some really neat tools at the store that makes this technique fun and easy. 

Come on in and check 'em out!

Hey Friends!!!!

Do you have a heat gun?

I luv mine. 

You can use it for embossing, setting, drying, moulding, melting......  Hang on, gotta take a breath. 

Adding embossing powder to a card or layout is easy and adds texture. 
You stamp your image, cover in powder, tap off excess so just the image is covered then heat set. 

I also like to use mine to stamp in crafters foam. You heat the foam for a moment then as its still warm you press your stamp in to it.   Your image is now set in the foam. Its fun to make your own embellishments. 

Come in and see all the new goodies that we've got!

Hey there Friends!

Do you have any punches?  I am discovering more and more I want to add to my collection. 
I want just simple shape punches. Circles, ovals, squares....  All in varying sizes. It would be nice to just grab it and punch out what I need and then I'm good to go. 

But Wait!!!!!  My Cricut!  The Shillouette!  The Big Shot!  
Don't forget about those handy gadgets!  

If you are going out to a crop and can be prepared (SO NOT ME!), cut your needs out prior to leaving, then if you don't need or want to lug your tools with you, you're all set.   

Check out this fun Easter banner I found over on Simple Stories. I luv it!!!  And so easy to do!  I am going to make one this Thursday!  I'll let ya know how it turns out.  Lets see if I can get prepared ahead of time. (Ya, those whom know me just went 'puhffft'. Didn't ya!?)

These are my favourite tips that I learned last night and I thought I would share them with you. =)

Hello Friends. 

I apologize for my hiatus.  I hate being sick!  

I hope you are all creating lots of crazy things!

I did this class a few years ago with Vicki Boutin ( i know eh!?  I cant get enough of her!)

Its full of frouf and technique!  

In the top left corner is a pink pompom made of tissue or crepe streamers.  All we did was roll them into a 'log' style roll, snipped the other end with scissors a bunch of times then poufed it out. We stuck the fashion pins in the back and adhered it with glue to our paper. 
Simple. I luv the look. 
I luv these trays for such fun things as creating crazy frouf!  ;-)

Hello!

I have already told you about one of my favourite Mixed Media Artists (Donna Downey,) so thought I would share another great talent. Her name is Christy Tomlinson. Love her work. LOVE it. Some of you may have already seen her work....she is the creator of SHE ART but she also creates a lot of other things such as canvas art, journals etc.. She has her own line of stamps available through Unity Stamp Co. and has created items for Pink Paislee as well.

Here are two examples of her work:



Check out her blog for more of her work here: Christy Tomlinson Blog

She also has her videos for these and more on You Tube here: Christy Tomlinson You Tube

One of my favourite things about her is that she is not afraid to get messy! Just look at her work table in the videos to understand that. LOL

Have fun playing!

Hey Friends!

Do you have one of these nifty gadgets?

I luv mine!

Its great to distress any kind of paper or project you are working on. 
Especially a paper with a different coloured core. 

It also roughs up the edges of your paper to give it a grungy distressed look. 

I even use mine on my brads if i want to add some distress ink to them. 

Need one?  No problem. Come on in and grab one today!  

Happy Creating.

Deb

Have you been playing with all of your sprays, inks, paints? Have you been making a mess? If you have then I highly recommend this product. It is AWESOME.

Inkssentials™ Non-Stick Craft Sheet™



This craft sheet is 15"x18" and NOTHING sticks to it! It withstands high heat, paint/ink/spray ink just wipes off. Just spritz a bit of water on it and the paint/ink/spray ink raises up. I actually use the excess by flipping my art journal over and soaking up the ink....I don't like to waste it!

Click here for more information: http://rangerink.com/?product=non-stick-craft-sheet%E2%84%A2

Here is a great video where you can see it in action:



We sell this great product in the store and if there are none left in stock just ask a staff member to order one in for you.

Have fun playing,
Michelle

Words on Wednesday


Hello Friends!  

I know I've said i luv to scrap with quotes many times. So i wont say it again....much. ;-)

Do you have a favourite childhood book?  One that you can read now and it takes you back to that time when your only worries were if you'd get your bedtime story read once or many times.  

Many people favour Dr Zeus, or Winnie the Pooh and such fabulous words they do have. 

Whats your favourite childhood quote?  

Scrap it!

A great way to try out new products and techniques is to use tags. Check out this tag made by our very own Lee-Anne.



On this tag Lee-Anne stamped, paper pieced, coloured with Copics, Distress Inked canvas butterfly, inked edges, distressed edges and used some bling (which is totally her). She layered flowers and tags and used some Washi Tape. I LOVE this tag!

She used one of these awesome new doll stamps created by Julie Nutting for Prima Marketing. These cling mount rubber stamps are big at 7.25"!!




(item #'s 910143, 910150, 910174, 910181 & 910198 in order shown)

Also used these cool tags from Prima Marketing. They are 3.5"x8.5" 100lb cardstock tags with a text background.



The best part about these products? They are only $7.99 each! Wow!

Have fun playing with some tags.

Hello Friends!!!!  

Have you ever used your white crayons?
They are the best tool for doing a resist technique on any project!
We will be touching on this technique in Thursday's post. 

Being a wax it will not let the ink adhere to the area it is coloured on upon the surface. 

We do sell white crayons at the store if you feel too guilty pilfering them from someone else's stash. ;-)

Come in and see us for some inspiration. 

Happy Creating.

Mixed Media Monday

Hi Everyone!

A great way to play with all of those new or old mixed media supplies you have been collecting is by creating an Art Journal. You can do anything with your Art Journal - use it to write your thoughts, inspiration, quotes, prayers, documenting your life etc..My Art Journal is full of my favourite quotes.

One of my favourite Mixed Media Artists is Donna Downey. I am sure you are familiar with that name already as she has been in the Scrapbooking world for a number of years.


She does a video every Wednesday showing how she creates her Art Journal pages from start to finish. I have to say she is quite entertaining to watch as she is honest about herself and her work. It is called Inspiration Wednesdays. She has been doing them for a few years so take some time and enjoy her process.

She also posts her work from a collage book on Mondays. No video here but great pictures of her work. It is called Collage Mondays.

Enjoy your family today!
Michelle

Hey There Friends!

Are you a journal junkie?  I would luv to be one, but am not great with words on my layouts.  Ha!  Like ya couldn't tell from my posts right!  ;-)

One of my favourite quotes is "The best things in life are unseen. Thats why we close our eyes when we laugh, kiss and dream. "

Soooo..... Here's a challenge for ya!  And yup there will be a prize!!!

Use that quote in a double page layout. The layout must include at least 1 picture, the quote, a piece of bakers twine and 3 buttons. 
Show us what ya got!  Bring it into the store before 5:30pm on Thursday February 28th. Judging with be done by the Sweet team that night and the winner will be announced on our blog and  face book pages the following morn.

Gelatos...how I LOVE Gelatos. Not those Gelatos (never tasted them before).......... these Gelatos:



Look at all the yummy colours! Greens, reds, blues, purples, yellows, white & black, gold & silver and metallics as well. I am missing the neutral pack...guess I will have to get them. ;)

What are Gelatos (made by Faber-Castell)? They are creamy, odorless, acid-free pigment sticks.

What can you do with Gelatos?

- You can blend them with or without water, using your fingers or brush.
- They can be used on stamps - put directly onto a stamp and then mist with water and stamp image on paper. Gives a water colour effect.
- Add colour to paper, chipboard, canvas or wood.
- Great for creating a colourful background.

Here is a great video by Limor Webber to show how they work. Check out more of Limor's videos for awesome layouts & art journal pages.



If you are interested in this awesome product then let us know what colours you would like. They are also available in a full box set. Check out the variety of colours here: Faber-Castell Gelatos.

Have fun playing!

Hey Friends!

Froufrou: any showy or frilly ornamentation. ;-)

We saw this layout at the Bo Bunny booth at CHA. 
I luv it!
Its got lots of "frouf"! ;-)

Do you have a favourite embellishment that you find yourself always gravitating towards?

Do you find you use ready made embellies or do you add your own?

Do you need more?  I know eh!?  Sometimes I just gotsta ask the dumb questions. We ALWAYS need more!!!!

Technique Thursday


Hello Friends!!!

Yesterday I mentioned about using a quote as an embellishment.  
One of our designers had done just that in this layout. 

Case 'scrapped', or put together the quote first then worked it into her layout. 

Notice too how it is inked around all edges to give it a vintage and warm feel. 

Also don't be afraid to put things askew.   I luv how Case put the entire layout slantwise. 

Do you have a favourite quote or saying?  Try scrapping just that onto a card or tag turning it into your main embellishment, then add it to a layout. 

Do you use your inks around your cut lines or edges to give your layouts a different feel and look?

Come see us at the store for new inks, letters, quotes or just inspiration!  

Happy Creating Friends!
Cheers, 
Deb

Worded Wednesday


Hello Friends!

This layout was on display at CHA and I luv how the quote is the main embellishment but does not take focus away from the photo. 

Quotes are great for using as journaling or embellishments.  When you do a quote try to do ever word a different way or in a different set of lettering. It really gives your layout a different feel. 

Even scrap a quote onto a tag then scrap that onto your layout. 
I will post a pic tomorrow using this technique. 

We have lots of different lettering at the store. Come on in for a visit!

Happy Creating!

Hey Friends!

Do you have a favourite stamp? 

Did you know Hero Arts makes stamps to coordinate with a few paper lines?
Such as this one that goes with the Basic Grey True Love line. 

I wasn't really into stamping at all. Then I tried it....I luv it now!  There are so many different ideas and techniques you can use your stamps for. I find they are always a good investment.   

Have you ever tried stamping into a texture paste?  Or damp toilet paper?  How about onto heated crafters foam?
We will be trying these techniques at our card class on Sunday Feb. 17th. Have you registered?  

We have lots of stamps in store with a bunch more on the way.  We also special order for you.  All we need is the manufacturer, and the stamp name. If you don't see something that grabs your attention, just ask us to pull out an ordering catalogue.  But be prepared to sit a bit and after you see them you are going to want them all!  

Happy Creating,

A great way to add a little something extra to your layouts is to use Spray Inks. I LOVE spraying and dropping ink on my layouts.

Ways to use Spray Inks
:

1) Spray directly onto your layout. Great way to add a splash of colour to an otherwise blank space.
 
(Layout by Michelle V.)

2) Use a stencil and spray to make a pattern.

(Layout by Michelle V.)

 3) Drop ink from the spray nozzle. (Just tap lightly on the nozzle end and let the ink drop randomly on page.)

(Layout by Michelle V.)

 4) Use the tube from spray nozzle to create a shape. Put directly onto layout and draw circles, swirls, hearts...whatever you desire.


We carry a variety of Spray Inks including Mr. Huey's
 DylusionsHeidi Swapp Color Shine & Glimmer Mists. If there is a colour you would like and we do not have it in stock let us know. We will order it in for you.

Have fun playing!
Michelle

Flowers on Friday.


Happy Friday All. 

Don't ya just luv these flowers?  
They are so very easy to make. 
All you need is a 9-12" strip of material, and gloobers!

A gloober is a very large glue dot.   Yes. We do have them at the store. 
You can make these flowers with them. Or cover them in glitter like Lee-Anne has done on one of her layouts. 

For the flower, you start in the middle of the gloober and put the end of the strip of material in the centre.  You then twist the material as you go around pressing it down into the gloober until the entire dot is covered.   Add some bling in the centre and you are done.  
Come in and see us and we can show you how to make these fun embellishments. 

There are still a few spaces left for our Tuesday evening card class if you'd like to join us. Give us a call and we'll sign ya up. 

Happy Creating!

Wacky Words Wednesday!


Hey out there!

What are some of the craziest words you have scrapped?

Mine would be from my layout above. "4 Sale. A beautiful white wedding dress worn once by mistake!"
I think I giggled the entire time I put this layout together. 
It was fun. I really didn't  think it would be.  But I succeeded in taking what ended up a negative experience in my life and had fun with it. 
  
Don't be afraid to create with the negatives. You never know what you'll come out with.

Hello Friends!

What is your go to gadget when creating?

If you are anything like me, you have more than one. 
My "cant be without them" tools are my 12" cutter, my score board, my adhesives, and my inks.   I guess I should throw in my scissors and maybe a corner rounder and some boarder punches....

As you can probably tell I have a hard time packing for a crop. I wanna take it all!!!!  Anyone else have the same dilemma?    

I cant wait for some of the new product we've got coming to arrive!  I want it all!  
Okay, greedy brat fit is done for now. 

Tell us what you would like to see in store. We always try to accommodate!

Mixed Media Monday!


Hey there to our Crafty Companions!

Chances are if you use any of the supplies in the picture you already dabble in mixed media. 
It just adds some punch to our projects. 

Sprays, texture pastes, colouring pens, pencils, paints, inks, fabrics, papers, canvas,...... Oh the list can go on. 

A combination of different textiles or mediums to create your artwork  is a mixed media project. 

My favourite mediums to use are texture pastes, inks, sprays, colouring pencils,paper and fabrics. 
Michelle luvs her Gelatos.  I had an opportunity to use these at CHA and see why she favours them. They are fun and easy to give different looks. You can use them like pastel crayons or with water like paints or make your own sprays with them. See endless possibilities!  

What ever your preference come see us!  We can set you up to create. 
Have questions about any of the mediums used?  Please just ask. We would luv to show you how everything works!  
Stay tuned for upcoming classes and projects coming soon. 
 
Happy Creating Friends!
Cheers. 

P.S.  Don't forget the Sweet Kids Camps this Friday Feb. 1st, Tuesday March 12th and Thursday March 14th as well as Friday May 24th.

Stampin' Sunday ;-)


Hello,
I do hope you've all had a fabulous weekend!

I wanted to tell you we will soon be receiving our shipment of new stamps from Hero Arts
I luv their stamps!
They even make them to coordinate with some paper lines such as Basic Grey. 

Do you know there are about one hundred stamp companies with each having hundreds of stamps. Oh the possibilities. 
If ever you see a stamp that you would like, please don't hesitate to ask if its something we could order in for you.  
Just remember to get as much information about them for us. For example the company whom makes them and the name of the stamp. 

Keep watching for our new card classes coming up in which we will use stamps as the main focal embellishments. 

Happy Creating Friends!
Cheers.

We at Sweet Sentiments luv different techniques when it comes to our creative process. 
What is your go to technique that you favour?

But!   I just gotsta tell ya, for amazing technique how to and fantabulous ideas my go to gal is Vicki Boutin. 
This woman rocks!  
If ever you get an opportunity to take a class of hers, Jump on it!  Her teaching process is easy to follow and understand, she always has fabulous ideas as well as any  information you learn in her presence is amazing! And her personality.....Awesome!
Her book is a must have for me. Its great to follow and ideas just jump off the page at ya.  She introduces you to different products and how to utilize them.   
You would be familiar with her layouts in Scrapbook and Cards Today.  (THE BEST magazine out there!) Right Gals!? ;-)

Wonderful Words Wednesday!


Hey Ya'll. ;-)

Some of us luv journaling on our creations.   Some of us dread it!  (Me!!!!)
 I  like using whimsical quotes or funny one liners that match my pages perfectly. 
But....when ya just cant find what you think works best with your layout simple words grouped together or listed beside the photo catch what one is trying to express perfectly. 
I luv how this layout does just that. 

We at Sweet Sentiments are gearing up for a fantabulous year!!!  Are Ya's ready?  
Tell us what you want to see and do. We want to hear from you!  Reach out to us on Facebook, Pinterest, our website, email or come visit us at the store!

Fathers Day Card Idea

Shirt Card Using Scor-Pal for Dad

I got the directions for making the shirt from the Scor-Pal website, from designer Cambria Tumbow. The shirt looks like it would be complicated but it really is not, with the use of the Scor-Pal! The shirt would also be cute on a scrapbook page featuring Dad or Grandpa too, not just for a card. If you're not familiar with the Scor-Pal, it is such a handy tool. I use it nearly everyday for my cards and scrapbook pages. It fits papers up to 12x12 and helps you quickly score and design projects, such as this shirt card.
For the shirt, you want a piece of decorator paper that measures 4 x 6. I used paper from the TAC paper collection "Just Like Dad." The paper is not patterned on both sides but that is ok for this shirt because of the way you fold the paper you don't see the white side. Just Like Dad is a nice 6 x 6 paper collection to have on hand for your more masculine themed projects.

Step 1: Score your 4 x 6 paper 1 inch on each side.
Step 2: Fold on your score marks.
Step 3: Score 1/2 inch on ONE side.

Step 4: Fold back on your score line, use your bone folder tool to crease well.
Step 5: To make the collar, fold the top down to meet the fold in the middle. Use your bone folder to help make the crease neat and flat. Flip out the bottom to make the "arm" flaps of the shirt, starting from your center fold out.


Step 6: Fold the bottom back up under the collar and now you have the shirt. I added a strip of blue cardstock for the tie. I layered the shirt on matching navy blue cardstock on the base of matching green cardstock. I cute a strip of decorated paper from the same paper collection as the shirt and stamped "Dad" in black ink on that strip of paper. It's really an easy card to make once you have tried making the shirt card one time. Try practicing the shirt card on some scratch paper to practice the fold.

Altered Bulletin Board - Fancy Pants

Fancy This: Altered Bulletin Board

Greta Hammond gives us this beautiful Fancy This project this week! Below, she explains just how to make your very own Altered Bullentin Board. Greta even gives you step-by-step instructions on how to make her pretty flower embellishments, that not only look great on this board, but will also look great on other projects as well.

Road Show bulletin board
Road Show bulletin board 3

Supplies:

Road Show Collection papers

Daily Grind Buttons
TA Nature Butterfly Framed Fonts
TA Glimmer Mist: Candy Apple Red
other: chipboard swirls, pearls, sea green paint, brown ink.

Instructions:

Step 1:. Cut 3 different sized circles from paper and scallop edge with decorative scissors. (hint: the circles don't have to be perfect!)

Flowers step 2

Step 2:. Spray circles with TA Glimmer Mist. Allow to dry some. The mist gives the paper a texture plus it softens it so the flowers are easy to work with.

Flowers step 3
Step 3:  For each circle, fold up to almost in half and then pinch bottom and sort to fold in the sides.

Flowers step 4
Step
4:  You should have sort of a stem and then work with flower to get the shape you want.

Flowers step 5

Flowers step 6

Here are some other fun ways to alter your alphas:

• Paint and dry brush with stickles for a more subtle glitter effect
• Ink plain kraft alphas with chalk ink
• Paint white the NEW white alphas then sand for a white wash look
• Paint with Tim Holtz crackle paint
• Spray with Tattered Angles or Smooch Spritz
• Paint then Glaze for a glossy effect

Designer Tips:

• When inking letters use a chalk ink. The alphas tend to soak up inks such as Stazon.
• Try using a paper piercer to hold on to your letters.  The metal tip fits right into the natural groves of the alphas without damaging them.
• The number of coats of paint is up to your discretion.

But above all else...have fun with them!  These alphas are so easily alterable and if you have another way to dress them up, please be sure to share that with us!

designer of the month
Our store is filled with wonderful creations from only a portion of our amazing customers. We are very thankful to our customer designers for providing us with their "works of art" to share.

Each month we will be featuring our designers. You will get to know a little bit about them , put a face to the name and check out of their inspiring creations!

Our feature designer this month is
Sarah Wilkinson




 

-Who you are?

I am a mom and I have been married to my husband Shane for 8 years, we met in high school

 

-Do you have children?

We have 2 children, 4-year-old Jakob and 6 year

Old Tally

 

-Work outside or in the home?

I am a full time (nights) residential

Support worker for a local support agency

 

-What got you started scrapbooking?

 I received a scrapbook kit as a

Shower gift after my daughter was born, with some help and guidance from a

Friend it quickly became an addiction

 

-What do you scrapbook?

 Mostly kids and pets, but I've been fortunate

Enough to find some old pictures of my grandparents, which I love to work

With.

 

-What’s your favourite/can't live without item?

 My paper piercer, when I

Think a page just doesn't look right sometimes adding some hand stitching

Does the trick for me.

 

-Favourite technique/designer company and why?

 It changes, but right now Stitching seems to be where it’s. I have a hard time deciding my Favourite company, jillibean soup has some beautiful new products but Basic Grey has always been a tried and true favourite.

My favourite

Designer is Carolyn M at Scraptivity; technically she's not a designer

Anymore and she's a good friend of mine but all of her projects are

Amazing.

 

-Do you do other crafts i.e. Cards, altered projects

 I have made cards and I altered an old printers drawer but really don't stray too far from Scrapbooking, unless you count making crafts with the kiddos.

 

-Why do you scrapbook?  It's fun for me, I want my kids to see how things

Were at this point in their lives.


Please visit the store to check out some of Sarah's amazing creations.

Stay tuned to our blog for some pics of Sarah's work!

We are back from our very first weekend scrapbook retreat and it was a blast! The setting was beautiful on the shores of Lake Ontario. It was amazing to look up and see the breathtaking sunset each night. There was lots of laughter and cropping going on as well. I think there were two ladies that managed to get over 30 layouts completed. Now that's some serious "cropping".
Check out this weeks newsletter for pictures of the winners of our layout and card making challenge.
Thank you everyone for joining us at Pleasant Bay Camp and we look forward to sharing more cropping moments with you!
Please check your emails for our retreat survey.

    "Why didn't I think of that"...tip


    Another great tip from Kaisercraft...
    This week Fran Tynan shows us another way to jazz up simple grosgrain ribbon and use it on your projects!  Here, Fran has sewn the ribbons together. Either use a bunch of smaller ribbons, or vary the width, change colours and styles;   hold them together and run them through the sewing machine as normal. Fran promises it’s easy!!

     What a beautiful day !

    The perfect day to be sitting under a shade tree with your favorite scrapbook magazine, or maybe on the picnic table with the great card kit from Basic Grey or maybe heading into town to check out your favorite local scrapbook store full of inspiring goodies!!!

    Here is another great idea to inspire!


    Check out this "easy to do" technique to create adorable flowers with your scraps that can be added to any card or layout!


    (idea scrap-lifted from Jillibean Soup blog)

    www.jillibeansoup.typepad.com


    Flowertutorial2

     

    The easiest way to cut the next square is to place the first one right on top of the patterned paper, and then cut around it, leaving a little bit of space on each side. This way you know the next one you cut will be a little bit bigger, and about the right size.

     

    Flowertutorial3

     

    Once you have your three squares cut, then start cutting the squares into circles.  Again, I don’t make them perfect, I just eyeball it.  You could also use a circle cutter to make perfectly round circles if you prefer, just make one a little larger than the one before it. 

     

    Flowertutorial4

     

    Once you have your three circles, you can begin to distress the edges. If you have an edge distresser tool, go ahead and use that.  I just used my scissors, and ran the edge of the scissors along the edge of the paper, until I got the look I desired. You can go for a lot or just a little distressing, whichever you prefer.

     

    Flowertutorial5

     

    Then, to make the flower a little more distressed, and a little more 3D, so it pops off the page, I wrinkle it up.  You can even crumple it up into a ball in your hand…this paper’s tough…it can take it J. 

     

    Flowertutorial6

     

    The next step is to paint the edges.  Again, this doesn’t need to be perfect, and you can use as much or as little paint as you like.  I use a foam brush, but you could even use your finger to apply the paint.

     

    Flowertutorial7

     

    I let the paint dry, and then I add a little bit of Stickles to the edges, just to give the flowers a little sparkle. 

     

    Flowertutorial8

     

    Once the glitter has dried, I add a little bit of adhesive to the center of each circle,

     

    Flowertutorial9

     

    and glue the three circles together.

     

    Flowertutorial10

     

    The final step is to thread some floss through a button...

     

    Flowertutorial11

     

    And tie the thread in a knot on top.

     

    Flowertutorial12

     

    Add some adhesive to the top of the flower and glue on the button (as an alternative, you could put a brad or other embellishment in the center of the flower).

     

    Flowertutorial13

     

    Once the flower was completed I added it to the top of the stem that I had stitched on to the layout, using the Bazzill “In Stitches” stem template. That’s it!  Pretty easy to do.  I hope you have some fun coming up with your own flower creations with all of the yummy Jillibean Soup papers!    

     

    Thanks bunches Jamie - great details!

    Check out this INSPIRING tip from Kaisercrafts...

    Most of you have probably played with layering flowers with materials such as buttons to make flower centers, but have you ever tried altering the petals as well?

    Try stamping an image across your flower for a unique look. Kaisercraft rhinestones adhere beautifully for a bit of sparkle, as do small rubons. Glitter and dimensional paint offer a new look to the petals. You could even try stitching tiny cross stitches or even journaling onto the petals… so get creative and have a little paper flower frenzy

    Scrapfest
    HOME FROM SCRAPFEST
     
    Well...another very exciting trip to ScrapFest again this year! I'm sure if you ask all 47 of our bus trip ladies, they would all agree! Our driver Mike from Parkhurst tours was GREAT! He has a wonderful sense of humor and I think he enjoyed being surounded by ladies all day!
    Lisa and the gang at ScrapFest did a wonderful job with organizing this HUGE event. There was such a large variety of papers, stamps, embellishments, tools and very creative make and takes to enjoy! Congradulations to all of the lucky bus trippers who won some goodies while on the bus. I {heart} giving away prizes and I must say , I think scrapbookers are the only people who will rip a button off the shirt they are wearing to win a prize! Great fun! Thank you ladies for joining us on the bus, you were a blast! Can't wait for next year!

    Upon our arrival today we had noticed the store had been broken into last night, along with many others around us.

    Laura and I are sadden by this invasion of our "second" home.

    The police have completed their investigation and we are open for business
    but due to the theft of all our cash and damage to our cash drawer, we can only accept Debit/Visa and Mastercard
    today.

    We have had many customers stop by this morning and we THANK YOU for your kind words and support.

    Maybe you can help???

    Our dear friend Kimberly from DejaView boutique, here in the Sommerville Centre, has just informed me she has found almost twelve little kittens in our plazas dumpster. The kittens are looking for food and are very young. Kimberly is a very dedicated volunteer for a wonderful charity called Fixed Fur Life. Fixed Fur Life sponsors strays to get spayed and fixed.

    As a plaza, we are trying to raise enough money to get these adorable little kittens fixed and hopefully find them a loving home.

    The cost to fix one kitten is $60.00. So if you know of anyone looking for an adorable little kitten to adopt, please have him or her contact Kimberly @613-966-3352
    The next time you visit us, please place a few coins in the donation jar on our counter. Every little bit helps!

    Interested in finding out more about Fixed Fur Life? Check out their web site
    www.FixedFurLife.com

    Thank you for your support!

    Where is the Slice?
    We are not sure!
     
    We were told by our supplier that they themselves did not receive enough to fill their orders, therefore we are waiting patiently for our shipment to be sent to us early next week.
     
    We are so sorry for the delay and anxiously await their arrival!

    WOW!!!
     
    Our Customers
     ROCK!!
     
    A big THANK YOU to everyone who participated in our All day Crop for A Cure this past Saturday. We had lots of laughs, great prizes, great classes and best of all, an AMAZING amount of money collected for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.  The donations are still pouring in but we are looking at over $600.00 so far! Every little bit counts!
    We have some really fun and interactive ideas in the works for next year!
     
    We are very thankful for everyone contributing to such a worthing organization. As I'm sure you are aware, one in three women will battle some form of cancer in their lives. It is so important we do everything we can to help out with the research process to fight this nasty disease.
     
    We thank you again for your support!

    Help us fight Breast Cancer!


    Breast Cancer affects One in four Woman in Canada. This is why it is so important to help find a cure for this disease.

    We have learned too well that it can affect someone close to your heart. Laura’s sister was recently diagnosed with Breast Cancer at the young age of 26. She is an incredible woman who has a bright and positive attitude on life. She is beating this disease but could not have done it without the generous donations Canadians have made towards treatment programs and research to find a cure.

    We are taking pledges for the Walk to Cure Cancer that takes place on Sunday October 5. Any denomination is welcome. We also have a collection jar on the front counter if you wish to drop some change. Every little bit gets us closer and closer to finding a cure.

    Also, by purchasing any of Melissa Francis Breast Cancer support line or Scrapbook Adhesives “pink” adhesive you will be making a contribution to the cause.

    Stay tuned for information regarding our All day "Crop for Cancer" in October.
     
    We thank you in advance for all of your support!
