But only three of them made it onto my card, I also used the HB2U from yesterday’s preview set Mini-Remix Balloons. Creating and ink blended background and popping all the characters up on top, made for a super sweet card.

Kraftin Kimmie Stamps – Preview Day 1 – Stacey Slapshot


Hey everyone! Welcome to Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps first release of 2018!!


I absolutely adore her, maybe because I am from small town Saskatchewan and we all played hockey.

I coloured her up with my copic markers, then fussy cut her out to add her onto this card. I felt the play like a girl sentiment when so perfect with the bow and pretty papers!

I had coloured these guys up while I was without a computer, and then Kevin was so kind as to replace it for me for Christmas. So now I am back to making videos. I have started by doing just a process of this card without the colouring. Hope you don’t mind that there is no colouring in this one, I need to get these images onto cards!

Newton’s Birthday Bash


Hey everyone! I am here again with my second guest post for Newton’s Nook!

I have been on a party card making kick apparently and this time I inked up Newton’s Birthday Bash! Probably because my kitty likes gift bags as much as he likes boxes.

Bag – BV29, BV25, BV23, BV20

You’re Spectacular

Hey everyone! Today I get to share with you my first Design Team Post for The Greeting Farm this year! I chose to start out the year using the You’re Spectacular set and coloured her up with my copic markers.
