Goldie Golfer Happy Birthday

Does something ever just catch your eye and you have to have it?  It might be that perfect purse, scarf or pair of shoes or it might be a stamp set.  That's the way I felt when I first spied Goldie Golfer from Art Impressions.  She is just so saucy and I knew the perfect person to create a card for using Goldie.
This is what I came up with,

 I like to stamp the image a couple of times and then colour a couple of different ways.  Same stamped image but with different patterned paper and colours it looks like a different card.

This is the Goldie Golfer card that I gave a co-worker.  She is an avid golfer and has a saucy, no nonsense approach to life.

I used the sentiment "wanna play a round?" on the front and then stamped a big "Happy Birthday" on the inside.

Goldie, the sentiment and the golf ball are all popped up with foam tape to give some added dimension.

So keep your eyes open you never know ....

Beautiful Brushed

Today, I wanted to share with you some artwork using the Brushed Workshop on the Go (WOTG).  Brushed is a beautiful paper package with wonderful large flower prints, graphics and watercolour prints to match cardstock colours of pixie, canary and juniper.

The WOTG  includes a complete Brushed paper package, 4 additional sheets of colour co-ordinated cardstock, a complete package of metal flowers (8 pcs.) , an exclusive D-size stamp set, and full colour instructional brochure for you to complete 2 - 2 page layouts.  


This project is wonderful for the beginner scrapbooker or the more advanced.  You'll have your project done in a snap - just add photos and pop in your album.  The cardstock, patterned paper and accessories are all co-ordinated for you to finish your project in a few hours.  You will even have leftover cardstock and patterned paper to create a card or two - using the exclusive stamp set.   The full colour instructional brochure provides a layout for Cricut users and an alternate project for those who chose not to use their Cricut.

The Brushed WOTG will be the featured November WOTG club kit.  Contact me today to get your kit ordered and ready for November.

Pathfinding card WOTG

Welcome to September - back to school, autumn breezes, trees starting to change colour and best of all routine.  I love the summer months, but they are a bit chaotic and boy does routine go out the window.    I confess I'm not really into spontaneity or spur of the moment.  

But.. I do like to throw caution to the wind when I'm crafting.   This is why I love the Workshops on the Go by CTMH.  It allows you to follow the directions exactly and create beautiful projects, but it also allows you to throw caution to the wind and put your own spin on it.

The Pathfinding WOTG provides 15 cards and envelopes, an exclusive stamp set, cardstock, sequins, shimmer trim, and cardstock to complete five of three different cards.

 These are the 3 cards following the instructions exactly.

I love the woodgrain stamped image and the pops of colour with Glacier (new) and Goldrush.


What if we changed it up a bit.

These three cards follow the same pattern as the originals, with a twist.

I replaced the woodgrain stamp with the woodgrain embossing folder, and flipped the patterned paper to the opposite side.  I chose different images from the same stamp set to use and voila...

I did add Bamboo cardstock not included in the kit.

The Pathfinding card WOTG is a fun project to get ready for your season of thanks.
