Bee Mine: One Design, Two Outcomes

Hello stampers and happy Tuesday to you. Time has once again slipped through my fingers when it comes to blogging. I hope that you missed me!! Perhaps you have been a part of my Fourteen Days of Love video series. These gorgeous cards were a part of that, and I now also have a complete tutorial bundle for you to either get for free with a purchase OR if you are a part of my team. Otherwise you can purchase it on my blog here.


One Design, Two Outcomes


I love it when you can make one design and use it for two completely different purposes. This started out as an adorable framed art project. I thought it would be perfect to give to a loved one so they can put it in their work space and be reminded that they are loved. What do you think?

It can also be made into a card which you can then mail anywhere in the world!! We often forget to tell our people how much we love them.

Of course, I am all about options. The card also has two choices:  black mat or sweet sorbet mat?? Both have their charms as you will see.

Fun Little Bee Mine Tip


While the Bee My Valentine stamp set is adorable, the Bee Mine paper is over the top!!! You can cut myriad images out of this paper. Some of it is a little busy for my taste, so use it in small doses, OR cut out the adorable bees and use them as fun accents. For these cards I also fussy cut the jars and the honey pot. It really isn’t difficult and it makes for very affordable crafting.

The other great tip is to use white embossing on black cardstock for your sentiments. It really pops in contrast to the yellow and red backgrounds and it coordinates with the gingham ribbon. Repetition is a great design technique!

Salebration Inspiration!!

Hello stampers and happy Tuesday to you. I have found a magical combination for some serious Saleabration Inspiration!! The Meandering Meadow suite coordinates so well with so many of our saleabration offerings. In fact, I made a 17 card pdf tutorial to inspire you. You can get it for free when you order with me, or you can purchase it in my tutorial store here.


17 card mega tutorial bundle featuring saleabration products combined with online exclusives.


Features and Benefits of Saleabration Inspiration


One of the great features of this saleabration inspiration tutorial is that it shows a. card that is suitable for a beginner and then also has a stepped up version for more advanced stampers. There are some great tips and tricks for getting the most out of your saleabration freebies! I love tutorials because they jump start your creativity and make you happy to be in your stamp room again!


Don't waste the birds along the side and bottom of your Flight & Airy paper, they look great on a card too!



This card uses both sides of the same piece of paper. Just die cut the circle and turn it upside down!


Video Tutorial


I made a little video tutorial showing you a few tips and tricks with the Flight & Airy paper. It really is amazing what you can do with this lovely Flight & Airy Paper! If you want to have more saleabration inspiration, check out this blog post from last year! (actually less than two weeks ago)



Best Deal Ever!


If you have followed me for any length of time, you know that I am a firm believer in the starter kit. It is an absolute mystery to me why every single customer of mine has not purchased the starter kit. It is such an amazing deal and there are no strings attached. If you could get a Costco membership for free for six months and you also got to choose around $200 worth of ANYTHING in the store and pay only $135, wouldn’t you jump on it? That is what the offer is with the starter kit.

Right now for only $135 you can get $165 worth of products PLUS the glass plate, silicone palette and gray shammy as a bonus (worth about $100 with shipping and tax) You can also choose the option of getting $206 worth of product for only $135. Here is the link if what I said made sense to you (valid only in Canada)

Flight & Airy

Hello stampers and happy Wednesday to you. Today I am going to share with you a gorgeous card that I made using the Flight & Airy paper. This paper is one of the free saleabration offerings that you can choose from starting on January 4. I have had so much fun playing with it but today I am only going to share one card. If you want to see more, be sure to check out my “shorts” section on my YouTube channel. The video with all the cards will be up on Friday. We will be making ALL of those cards at my Cozy Cabin Winter Retreat from January 2-4 in New Hamburg, Ontario. I still have room for one more person if you are interested!!


Flight & Airy Card


This card is called “Bird’s Eye View”. You will see why, I think!

PDF Tutorial


Tomorrow I hope to write a pdf tutorial for the cards that we will be making at my retreat. When it is finished, I will put in the tutorial section of my blog so you can purchase it there. Are you looking forward to saleabration as much as I am??


In the Air!!


This card is also quite fitting, as I will be in the air tomorrow as well. I’m flying back to Canada for almost four weeks without Gerard. He needs to be in the greenhouse tending to his flowers and bulbs. I am excited to see my mom, my kids and grandkids and of course my team and my customers and my friends. Phew!! I need to take a breath after that long sentence. Besides the retreat I am also offering a Bingo class, both in person and online. As I write this, I realize that I have not marketed that enough yet, it only went into one newsletter!! Life is busy, especially at this time of the year.

I hope to see you while I’m in Canada, either at the retreat, in a class or in a Zoom class! Hugs from Holland and Happy New Year if I don’t get a chance to blog again before that. Thanks for being here.

Why Not Add a Tent?


I loved adding the cyclist and the runner from Greatest Journey, so why not add a tent and the lady with the lantern? What do you think?



A Few Tips and Tricks


I really love that the sayings from the Sending Support fit well with our Stitched Rectangle dies. For the layering, I used the fabulous Deckled Rectangle Dies. My colour palette was Basic Black and Very Vanilla which has both a vintage feel to it as well as a richness. Timeworn Type embossing folder adds to that very nicely!

These cards would also lend themselves very well to sympathy or thinking of you cards. You can use them with or without the die cuts from Greatest Journey.

If you want to take the vintage look to the next level, be sure to use our Blending Brushes to add some Soft Suede ink to all your layers. Looks great and is very easy to do!

Use your Stamparatus so that you black images are nice and dark black. This great tool lets you stamp multiple times in exactly the same place. I use mine every day!


Video Tutorial


Here’s the video tutorial on how to make these cards. Thanks so much for joining me today and happy stamping!

Country Floral Lane Valentine’s Card

Hello stampers and happy Friday to you. I made these Valentine’s cards for my Global Monthly video hop. My lovely friend Berdien Weideveld shared this card for the Artisan Team and I loved it so much that I just had to recreate it. Berdien has a great Instagram profile that you can find here, and then you can follow here there!


Country Floral Lane Valentine’s Card


Red is one of my favourite colours and one of my next favourite things is gingham. Add in a little texture, some green leaves and some scallops and I’m sold!!


Country Lane Floral Valentine's card cased from Berdien Weideveld


I stamped my sentiments in Versamark on Mossy Meadow and embossed in white. It can be so time consuming to find out where the sentiments came from on a card! Usually I have the complete list of products under my blog but I forgot to include this one. It’s the new Happy Labels 160685 in case you wanted to know. It also comes in a bundle with an amazing punch which you can find here. The white floral die cut behind the hearts is from Penned Flowers dies. My background is embossed with the Quatrefoil embossing folder.

Great Time Saving Product


Do you know what one of my favourite time saving products is? The assorted Memories & More cards and envelopes. The large ones measure 6 1/4″ by 4 1/4″ and the small ones are 3 1/4″ by 4 1/4″. I use them almost every day. The Valentine’s cards today use the large ones.
