Flower Hair Clip

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I went to a wedding this past
Saturday. I made these flower hair clips for my daughters. They loved it so much.

I made four of these and gave one to my niece. The colour didn't go with her dress that day but I'm sure she can wear it another time.

I punched two holes at the bottom of the Two Tags Die and slip the flower through the holes. I stamped the background with the Elements of Style set in Chocolate Chip ink. I added ribbon at the top and tie it with Linen Thread to make it pretty.

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great day!

Happy Stamping!

Master Clubs Favour Boxes

Hi stampers! Happy Thursday! I can't believe is Thursday already. Where have my week gone to?

I made these favour boxes for the Master Clubs kids. Last Wednesday was the last day of Master Clubs and we had a party. The kids all loved the boxes.

I made these boxes from the Petal Cone Die. I made the boxes according to the colours of the club logo. The boxes were filled with lots of candies and a toy. The kids were crazy over the toy. It was a sticky lizard or a sticky frog that they get. They throw the lizard or frog at the wall and it'll stick on it. A few younger ones doesn't know how to do it so theirs got very dirty collecting dust on the floor. The good thing about these sticky toys is you can wash them and they are good as new.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Happy Stamping!

Delight in Life Album

Hello everyone! Happy Friday! Hope you're having a wonderful day! I sure am having a wonderful day with the beautiful sunshine outside. Might go for a walk by the Fraser River.

Here is an album I made for DH's cousin for her bridal shower. You can get the tutorial here.

I made this before I made the tutorial. A different version of the cover of the album. I added ribbon to close the album instead. There is no designer papers on this album. I stamped the cover and a couple of the envelopes inside. Wish I had stamped every single one of the envelopes. It'll make the album looks better. Lots of pearls on this album. Love those self adhesive pearls. They are so pretty!

Scallop Circle Easel Card Tutorial

Happy Friday everyone! Beautiful sunny day today here in Vancouver. This post was supposed to be on Thursday but I couldn't post it all day yesterday. Glad the problem is over.

So here is a tutorial on how to make a scallop circle easel card.

1.Die cut a 5" x 10" card stock with the Scallop Circle Die (this die is about 4-1/2" in diameter) and the Big Shot Cutting Machine as shown in picture above.

2.This is how it should look like after the card stock is die cute.

3.Open the scallop circle up, put it into the paper trimmer. Count 16 scallops (the picture showed only 14 scallops, I didn't want to retake the picture) on the circle, making sure to line up the folded part of the scallop circle and score. You should score the valley part of the scallop.

4.Use a Bone Folder to sharpen the score line. Add adhesive to half of the scored scallop circle.

5.Die cut another scallop circle, line up the scallops on the circle and adhere it onto the scored circle. Decorate the scallop circle.

Here is my version of the card. Hope you like this little tutorial of the scallop circle easel card. Let me know if you have any question.

Happy Stamping!

Birthday Open Sea Card Part 1

ETA: sorry if you receive this again in your email. Blogger was having problem for 2 days and they erase this post. I have to re-post it.

Hello, everyone! Here is a card I made using The Open Sea stamp set from the Summer mini catalogue. This is an awesome set! When I saw this set it reminds me of a song about a ship called Bluenose. This ship is on our Canadian dime. I went onto youtube and found the song I sang when I was in elementary school. I'm so happy that it was on youtube.

I made a set of cards with the The Open Sea stamp set. This will make a great gift for Father's Day. I'll show this one for now. The weather was gloomy so therefor the pictures didn't turn out too good. I use natural light that comes through my window to take all my pictures.

Thank you for stopping by!

Mother's Day Blog Candy Giveaway

Hi, everyone! I can't believe this weekend is Mother's Day already. Yikes! I have not make any Mother's Day card at all this year. Didn't make any to post on my blog either. Will have to make a couple to give to my mom and MIL.

Anyway, I have a giveaway for you. You know that I'm a guest designer for Craft Project Central and as a designer I get to give away 1 FREE PASS to their site for the month of May to one lucky winner. Just in time for Mother's Day.
Leave a comment on this post telling me any Mother's Day memory you like to share or just comment is fine and I'll pick a winner on Sunday, May 8.

Here's my Mother's Day memory I like to share with you.
It was 12 years ago on Mother's Day my husband, my friends and I went to the Keg restaurant to have lunch on Sunday. Don't remember why we went to the Keg for. They had a Mother's Day steak dinner special. I rarely eat steak. I like it well done and most of the time when steak is well done they are tough to eat. Anyway, I ordered it but I was not a mother yet. Feel kind of silly in a way. My friends made fun of me but I didn't care because the steak was surprisingly good and tender. I love it! Still I don't eat a lot of steak due to my grinding of teeth. Hard for me to chew on beef. Little did I know on that day I was already pregnant. God has blessed me with a baby and I didn't find out until a week later. What a wonderful gift! 9 month's later my son was born. Wow! He'll be a teenager next year. Time sure flies.

I can't wait to hear what great Mother's Day memory you all have.

Have a wonderful day!
