The date is set!! Would love to have you join us for this amazing day of stamping and laughter and friendship!! Here are the details:
Benefitting the BC Ronald McDonald House here in Vancouver, Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the Lower Mainland will lead you through a day of paper-crafting filled with creativity, laughter and fun for everyone! You'll journey from station to station while creating beautiful hand-stamped and hand-assembled greeting cards and gift tags. All featuring current Stampin' Up! products, colors, embellishments and more, once you start you're not going to want to stop! Greeting cards will feature a variety of themes: thank you, birthday, kids, holiday, blank and much more! Visit our gift tag buffet and create up to 5 quick and easy gift tags using this year's Stampin' Up!-exclusive "Tag It" Stamp Set! Best of all, as part of your registration fee, you'll receive your own copy of this stamp set to take home and enjoy afterwards!
Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 19th from 11-5pm,. Then book your space, and gather your friends and family - - you're not going to want to miss out on this fundraising event!! Special thanks to McDonald's Head Office in Burnaby for donating their venue space for our event! Doors open at 10am and crafting starts promptly at 11am! Don't worry if you get a bit peckish or parched, there'll be light snacks and refreshments served throughout the day to keep you energized - but you may want to bring an additional snack with you just in case.
Though we guarantee even the most novice of stamper will enjoy creating these cards and tags, given the complexity of some of the projects, we suggest children under the age of 15 sit this one out.
Space is limited to the first 100 participants, and your place isn't secured until your non-refundable registration fee of $65 has been paid in full. For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard, PayPal and e-transfer payments (for e-transfer, please email the Event Coordinator directly at email@example.com) and payments or registrations will not be accepted at the door. Please be sure to print off your ticket confirmation (or plan to show it to us on your smartphone) to gain access to the event as well as to receive your welcome kit and "Tag It" Stamp Set.
*Please note that "clear mount" requires clear acrylic blocks (not included) for positioning and usage. (Please bring your own to the event) "Wood mount" are natural feeling maple wood blocks - similar to 'traditional' wood-mounted stamps from yester-year. Once you have selected your stamp mount preference and completed your registration and received confirmation, your mount preference can't be changed.
I'm thrilled to be involved with bringing you a weekend packed with creativity, friendship, sharing and FUN! Please consider joining us at our fall Paper Angels Crafting Retreat on November 29 - December 1st!

Phew...that's a lot to take in but you won't be sorry if you join us for one class or more on this wonderful day of crafting and sharing...we'll also have some fabulous displays showing you the other product from the Holiday Catalogue too! So be sure to have your camera handy!
Maybe it's because it is an emotional event that requires one that I find them hard to make. I also don't want any mistakes like smudges, bad colouring ... no sloppy work at all. On some cards I am willing to compromise a wee bit but on sympathy cards I try to keep quality control high. This card took me about 6 trys to get it the way I wanted it ... didn't stamp clean, didn't colour well, didn't line up right, on and on..then when the first attempt was just about acceptable..smudged it!
So back to basics...keep my work space cleared, clean my stamps as I go ... take time to measure twice and cut once (maybe twice). So finally I was happy. Here it is.
I made this card using watercolour paper and coloured with our aqua pens and reinkers. The cardstock is Real Red and Daffodil Delight. I used StazOn Jet Black ink to stamp the image to watercolour. This is the best ink for watercolouring as it is not water soluble. The words were stamped in out Basic Black ink which I heat set in my quest for keeping it from smudging! LOL
The stamp set may look new to you and it is. This is "Simply Sketched" one of the beautiful exclusive Hostess Sets coming up in the soon to be released Catalogue. You can only purchase this set with Hostess Points so if you love it and would like to have it in your collection I would love to ell you how easy it is to host a party or a private class to get it! If you have not recieved the catalogue yet I'd be happy to get one to you, just drop me a note at email@example.com and let me know or leave a comment below.
Thanks for stopping by!

Do you ever get caught with no cards on hand for the last minute birthday? anniversary? Thank you? Sympathy?
Well my Stamp-a-Stack class is just what you need! Never be caught again without a card when you need it!
In my Stamp-a-Stack classes you will make 15 cards, 3 each of 5 designs. The class cost includes envelopes! I hold one each month and they are usually pretty popular so don't delay and book soon! I am also happy to bring them to you and your friends (Minimum 5 people) in your home or my studio as a private class. Just contact me for a date that suits!
My complete list of classes and events is available under the "My Events" button ... over there on the right! Would love to have you join us!
Here are the cards we made this month.
I saw a similar card online and just had to try it. I am so in love with this emboss resist technique! My Hostess Club will be making a similar one at our club class on June 1st! You can attend the class if you wish. Just RSVP to let me know you would like to attend.
This one includes a sneek peek of some of the new designer series paper coming up in the new catalgue (which is vailable now..contact me to get your copy!)
This paper will be retired at the end of the month but the good news is that it is coming back in a changed colour family!! It's such a popular package of DSP...so happy we are not totally loosing it!
This card was designed by my good friend and Stampanions team member Jo West .
Last but not least another design I found online and totally love...does not get much quicker and easier than this...and you know how I love clean and simple cards?
I always like to have lots of 'word" stamps available at my class so that everyone can customise the greeting they want to put on the card. This last card uses the word set Curley Cute (Clearr Mount #120510). This set is retiring at the end of the month and I am going to be sooo very sad as it is my GoTo set! Five perfect greetings, Thank You, Season's Greetings, Happy Birthday, Congratulations and Thinking of You. If you just realised that you MUST have this set let me know and I'll be happy to add it to my end of month order. Last chance to have it...once it's gone it will be gone forever!
Thank for stopping by today! I appreciate the visit and love comments! Come back soon for a BLOG CANDY GIVE AWAY!!!
