OMG! I have to share what my hubby made!

This is so cool! My hubby, Shawn, has always made things for me (ok, us), but now he is starting his business of furniture making (and a whole bunch of other stuff.) You have to see this carving that he did for a co-worker. It is AMAZING! All from a photograph!

Here we go again...

Ok, so this is a STAR ALBUM that I made at a crop last month. They are SO MUCH FUN! Looks can be deceiving, until you open it up! And, the results are spectacular - if I do say so myself!
So, how do you make one you ask? You head on down to SCRAPPIN' GREAT DEALS on May 30th from 10am - 12:30pm, and I will show you how! The class is only $25 AND you will receive 10% off all store purchases for that day AND 50% off any one album purchase! Who could ask for more?!?!?
Now, the album we are doing will be with different papers, but I will post pics of it as soon as I can. Trust me... the papers are GORGEOUS! Make sure you check back here, or over at SGD!

I am so excited (again!) And, once again it has to do with SCRAPPIN' GREAT DEALS!

Remember back in October when I applied for their design team? Well, at that time I was told I didn't make the team, but I came "this" close. Recently I started working p/t at the store, was a guest design team member for March, and have been talking with the owner about teaching classes. And, now I have received an invitation to join the design team! I had to think about it... for all of about 2 seconds! I have my hands on April's kit and I just have to say "You MUST come back and check it out on reveal day!" Oh, but I also want you to check back to my blog before then! :)

I have some things in mind for classes, but I will cover that in another post. For now, don't forget to check out the "12 hour" sale over at SCRAPPIN' GREAT DEALS! It ends tonight at 9pm. Maybe I will even be the one to fill your order!

The 12 hour sale is now on at

I'm trying to set up my blog so that I can copy the info right here for you...but for now, please follow the link over to the site to take advantage of all the great deals!

P.S. Oh, and it's not really a 12 hour sale... it's on now and ends FRIDAY at 9pm!
Don't miss out!

I've been holding out on you...

Ok, so some of you know!

I have MORE exciting news! I've recently started working part-time at one of my favourite places in the whole wide world! SCRAPPIN' GREAT DEALS! Sheila and the rest of the gang are so much fun, and when surrounded by all the scrapping goodies it really doesn't feel like "work." So, if you are in the Kilworth area make sure you stop by to say hello!

I will also be teaching some classes there, so watch for future posts about dates and times!

My new "true love."

So, I had a Wish List and at the top of it was a new camera. I have been using the same 4 mega pixel camera for the past 5 1/2 years, but find that now that I tend to use larger images on my pages, I wanted something more. I searched...and fell in love.
I've been saving since Christmas, and recently we sold an old 1928 Ford Model A. I think DH was tired of hearing me talk about the camera, because just hours after the car was towed away he told me to go buy it! I "heart" him so much.
So, without futher ado, here is my new baby...

I'm still learning all of the bells and whistles...and I fully intend to scrap some pages of the first few (awful) photos!

See you soon!

Thank you to SGDs

Just wanted to say "thank you" again to the team at Scrappin' Great Deals for allowing me to be part of the March Design Team. I had a great time working with the kit. And, I am having an even greater time WORKING in the store! That's right! Sheila and I talked some time ago, and I am now working p/t at Scrappin' Great Deals! It's so much fun to go to work and be surrounded by SO MANY BEAUTIFUL THINGS...and the stock isn't bad either! LOL
And, now that Sheila has linked my blog to her website, it's going to make me keep on top of it!
So, I have some ideas swimming around in my head that I am going to present to Sheila for some classes, so please check back often! I also LOVE to hear from those that have visited, so please feel free to leave a comment on this, or any post! If you go back through my older posts, you will see some of my more recent work. I am also in the process of updating my slide show. And, lastly, you can find some links on the right hand side to my galleries, favourite blogs, and other great sites! Hope you enjoy!

Well, technically it is March 5th...REVEAL TIME!

Scrappin’ Great Deals’
Kim’s Kreative Kit
March, 2009

This month’s kit includes:

- Nine pieces of 12 x 12 patterned paper by American Crafts, from their “Moda bella“ line, and/or their “Everyday” line (may not be exactly as shown above)
- Two pieces of 12 x 12 Bazzill bling cardstock in “Diamond white”
- A selection of co-ordinating Prima Hydrangeas
- Glitz “icing” bling in black, white pearl, and pink
- Journaling cards and/or die-cut mini labels from Jenni Bowlin studio
- White alphabet cardstock stickers by Doodlebug Design Inc.
- An entire sheet of die cut shapes by Doodlebug Design Inc.
- A generous sprinkling of buttons and baubles from Kim’s stash

All this for only $25.98!

I had a great time putting these layouts together with the March Kit. It doesn't hurt any that I am working with my FAVOURITE subjects! I hope you enjoy the kit as much as I did, and get some inspiration from the following layouts! (click on any picture to make it larger)

In addition to the materials found in the kit, I also used a piece of Core- dinations ColorCore Cardstock and some stickles on the Primas.
For this layout, I added two different colours of Bazzill Cardstock and some stickles on a few of the buttons.
For this layout I only added the black cardstock and some black acrylic paint!
The only thing on this layout that was not included in the kit???? The photos and the DOODLING!
Again, I used some Core- dinations ColorCore Cardstock. I love how the centre colour comes through when the paper is sanded.
And, finally, on this layout I added two different colours of Die Cuts With a View (DCWV) cardstock.

Enjoy creating!
