Hello stampers and happy Monday to you. Today I have another card to share with you from Susan Forsythe. This one is Stitched Triangles Magic! I was intrigued by Susan’s card so I made one myself so that I could better explain it to you as well. Next week I will do a full video tutorial in my private Prime Time group. If you are interested in joining this group, you can read about it here.
Stitched Triangles Magic!
It really is quite magical when you layer some gorgeous stitched triangles and assemble them on a card. Susan added a beautiful intricate band between the triangles that also comes in this die set. By popping up the triangles you get a really cool effect. I hope my pictures do Susan’s card justice. Let’s take a look.
In the following photo you will see the detail even closer. All I can say is “Wow!”.
Video on my Facebook Page
I did a video on my Facebook page which shows a rather embarrassing “boo-boo” while I show how this card is made. It will give you a good starting point though if you want to make this card yourself. You can check it out here.
If you purchase the Stitched Triangles from me today then I will send you a free paper sampler of the Hydrangea Haven paper.
A Short Post
Sorry for the short blog post today. This is going to be a pretty busy week for me with lots and lots of kilometres being covered. On Thursday I will be bringing Rachel to Ottawa as she is moving into her new apartment, hopefully starting a new summer job and getting ready to go back for her third year of university. Then I will travel on to Montreal to visit my other daughter Katrina. On the way home I will stop at my parents for a sleepover. Home Tuesday and then Wednesday back to the airport to fly to North Carolina for a week with Gerard visiting his family.
Tomorrow night I have a Bingo evening with my team. Wednesday is an “Oma day” with the four grandchildren and somewhere in between I will pack and help Rachel pack a U-Haul trailer. Did I mention that I still need to get a trailer hitch installed on my vehicle too? Crazy times for this crazy squirrel.
Thanks for joining me today and thanks to all of you who have placed online orders or who have purchased tutorials from me. The next one for sale is the Sweet as a Peach International Create With Us Tutorial Bundle Team. It is $25 or free with a $60 purchase. Here is the sneak peek.
Stay cool! I hope you have a super day.
Hello stampers and happy Monday to you. Stamping together by mail has a bit of an old-fashioned ring to it doesn’t it? To me it sounds a little bit like pen pals with a twist. Is COVID distancing affecting you? Do you wish you could stamp with other people? Every month I send out a card kit so that you can stamp with me each Tuesday on YouTube live. I am very close to figuring out how to stream to both YouTube and Facebook at the same time so that will make it even more fun and accessible. This month the theme is Hydrangea Hill.
Stamping Together By Mail
Last week I shared the first card in this series and you can see it here. Today I am sharing the second card. I used the Quite Curvy bundle with the Hydrangea Hill paper peeking out from underneath. This card was inspired by an example from the Occasions catalog. The base for this card is Purple Posy, be sure to stock up before it is sold out as it is one of the retiring colours this year.
Update on Pap
This past weekend I drove up to Ottawa to help my youngest daughter Rachel move her things out of her old apartment into storage. If in person classes resume in September she will move back to Ottawa. On the way home we stopped for a visit with my parents. Pap finally had a haircut and he looked much better. He is 94 and the last year especially has been a rollercoaster ride. His decline in health started with a severe bout of shingles on his 93rd birthday. He was hospitalized several times and since then he has had pneumonia several times and a heart attack. Pap has COPD and is on oxygen but he is home with my mom who will be 89 on Sunday! He was happy to see Rachel.
Now maybe it is just me, but in real life he looked much better. It is hard to get a good photo of Pap under normal circumstances, but when we all need to squeeze into a corner around a bulky lazy boy and oxygen tubing it gets a little dicey. We are thankful for every new day and are amazed that Lord willing, he will be able to celebrate Mom’s 89th birthday on Sunday. When we were talking about it he looked at her and said, you don’t look that old! How sweet.
News That You Should Know
- Be sure to take advantage of the great deals on the Last Chance list but also stock up on your favourite retiring colours. You can shop here.
- If there are any bundles in either the annual or the Occasions catalog, get them before April 30 or you will not get the discounted price. Apparently even the bundles that are in the Occasions catalog which is supposed to go until June 30 will no longer be available as a bundle price if they have carried over into the annual catalog. Don’t ask me to explain because it doesn’t make any sense to me either. I’m just giving you a heads up to avoid disappointment.
- The new Parcels in the Post will be released this week and it features the Friends are Like Seashells suite.
- There are some Virtual Coffee and a Card kits still available. They are being mailed out today. You can subscribe to this kit here.
- Here is my YouTube channel if you want to subscribe and follow me on Tuesdays. The latest video for Parcels in the Post is also up for viewing with four great new cards to see.
Thanks for joining me today, I hope you have a super day!
Hello stampers and happy Wednesday to you. Today I a sharing my Hydrangea Hill Virtual Coffee and a Card class offerings. Have you heard about my Virtual Coffee and a Card Class? Let me tell you how it works.
Virtual Coffee and a Card Class
My business was built on my weekly coffee and a card class. When COVID hit these classes were not longer possible and I struggled for a while as to how to fill the need. After trying several options, I decided to do a monthly virtual coffee and a card class. I design a card for each Tuesday of the month and then I mail out a kit for the entire month of cards. Each Tuesday morning I do a YouTube live video tutorial on one of the cards. The cost for your package is only $25 mailed anywhere in Canada.
The easiest way to join in is to subscribe and you can do that right here.
After subscribing for six months in a row, you will get a free card kit from me in the mail. I hear that Stampin’Up! is going to offer an entire new line of kits so this could be super exciting.
Hydrangea Hill Cards
My Hydrangea Hill bundle was not available for a while and it still hasn’t arrived, so I decided to design the cards around the beautiful designer series paper and the mercury acetate that comes in the suite. The pastel pearls are also on their way so these cards will look even better when they get finished off with these pretty embellishments which will be included in your kit.
Here’s a sneak peek of the other cards that I will be showing you more of next week when my pearls are here.
Lots of Great Deals on the Last Chance List

Thanks so much for joining me today! The weather is beautiful, spring is here and my heart is happy hearing all the birds sing. Local squirrels are beating my birds to the feeders, just take a look at what these rascals are up to!
The pictures aren’t the best but they will bring a smile to your face. Have a super day!
