Ruby’s Bridal Shower Hop


Hello! I know it’s been awhile since I’ve updated the blog, but celebrating our special girl was a must! What a better way to get back into it; throwing an online shower for our beautiful bride, Rubeena Naz Ianigro.

Ruby’s happy day was on September 24th, 2016, but us ladies still want to celebrate: papercraft style. We’ve rounded up a bunch of friends and I hope that you’ll hop along to see all the beautiful creations in honour of Ruby. The hop starts on Amy’s blog and if you’ve been hopping along, you should have come from Rachel’s blog.

Here’s my card for the new couple:


I was inspired by a photo of the bride and groom on their wedding day and used the colours they were wearing for the card. The little side story is that I fell in love with this set after seeing Ruby creating cards with it. I knew that it was the perfect image to create for their card.

For Ruby and her husband: You made a beautiful bride and it makes me so happy to see you two so happy on your big day! Wishing you all the best as you start this new journey together. xo


We’re thrilled to be offering a few prizes:

Mama Elephant $25 Gift Card
Winnie & Walter $30 Gift Card
Kennedy Grace Creations $20 Gift Card

Winners will be selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop!  Commenting will close on Saturday, October 22 at 11:59 pm pacific.  Winners will be posted on Amy’s blog on Sunday, October 23rd.

Your next stop will be Jessica’s blog. Thanks for hopping along with us today!

Reverse Confetti 3rd Birthday Blog Hop


Hi! I am SO excited to be joining in on the fun over at Reverse Confetti as they celebrate turning three years old! There have been loads of inspiration from the Design Team and ‘Fetti friends so make sure you head on over to the RC Blog to see all the amazing projects that have been shared.

I seriously swooned when I saw the AMAZING birthday themed sets being released today! I am always seeking new and fun birthday images as those are the type of cards I send out most and need variation every year. The products I’m featuring today are: Boxes ‘N Balloons, Celebrations and the Boxes ‘N Balloons dies.

I started by continuously sponging ink on to the white base with a cloud mask and then stamped and die cut the balloons and ribbons. I then played with the balloon cuts to see how where I would end up placing them and drew the balloon strings with a black pen. I added the sequins after to add more dimension to the card.

For my second card, I started by stamping the confetti with black ink onto the white base and then stamped/die cut my balloons and sentiment. I then tied the balloons with white twine and adhered them with adhesive. I added foam adhesive on the layered balloons to add depth. I also used a white gel pen to add in the highlights on the balloons and thought that added the extra pop!

Hello! Remember when I stepped down from being the Design Team Coordinator for Your Next Stamp and I said I wouldn’t be going far? Well, I’m happy to be back joining the Design Team and showcasing the newest planner set! That’s right – YNS has started making stamp sets perfect for all planner peeps.

The planner you see above is the The Happy Planner Fitness from Me and My Big Ideas. I combine four months of my 12 month Happy Planner and the Fitness Planner together and use the mini discs to bind them. This new fitness set is PERFECT for those working towards your goals of living a healthier lifestyle and I know the stamp set will help me have fun while planning my goals!

What I did above was that I stamped some of the images on label paper and then coloured them with my Copic markers and stuck them in my planner pages.
