Spelling with Decorative Blocks

The new mini catalogue also includes some wonderful Decor Elements. I really wanted the wooden blocks and the coordinating rub-ons.

It took up most of my weekend to decorate the blocks, but I felt the time was well-spent.




First, I painted the wooden blocks with acrylic paint (available at any craft store).

Then, I decorated with gusto using both current and retired items.

Once completely decorated, the blocks can be rotated to spell different words.

Decor Snow

I think I will put these up on my mantle once I start to feel Christmasy!

Thanks for looking!

Growing Up!

My cousin, Sonia, purchased the Growth Chart (available for a limited time) a few weeks ago and put it to good use.

My nieces, Claudia & Holle, were only too excited to be the models for my photographs.


Growth Chart & Claudia Growth Chart & Holle

The Growth Chart is only available until the end of September. It comes with a free applicator (retail $2.25) and it's easy to put up.

Don't have a wall for the chart? Another option is to apply the growth chart to a piece of plywood and take it with you if your family moves to another home or if your baby changes bedrooms or wall colour.

You don't want to miss out on this limited time offer! Contact me to order yours today or place your order online at http://www.sheilaho.stampinup.net/.

A Happy BDay Bear

My little goddaughter, Holle, is growing up...too fast. It seemed like yesterday she was just a little baby.

I made her birthday card using the new Big Shot Build-A-Bear dies. I love this new set of dies from the mini catalogue!

Build A Bear girl

I wasn't sure if I would get the Build-A-Bear set, but I must say...I can't go back. They are too cute!

Stay tuned. I made a little boy bear too...and another girl bear...and a man bear. It goes on and on.

Come to the Open House and you'll see what I mean. Build-A-Bear is addictive and fun.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Halloween goody bags

I was inspired by some treat bags posted by Patty Bennett and decided to make a few of my own.

The bags were cut using the Big Shot and the Fancy Favor die. I liked how I could mix up the shape of the bags by choosing to fold in at the creases or leave them as is.

Halloween Treats

Razzleberry lemonade paper was used for the bags with a handle. The handles were attached to the bag using gold brads.

I stamped the images with the Sweet Centers stamp set and punched out the middle with the 1 3/4" punch. I added a different image to the centre and popped it up with dimensionals.

An easy project to make for your child's upcoming Halloween parties or for those deserving co-workers. :)

Thanks for looking!

Sweet treats

Ooh...I love the new Holiday Mini Catalogue. It is full of cool stamp sets and accessories like the Sweet Centers stamp set and the Sweet Treat cups. I combined both of them together to make this card.

Sweet Treat Cup

The embossed flowers were made with the exclusive textured impressions embossing folder called Petals-A-Plenty. This, too, is available in the Holiday Mini Catalogue.

To get to the candy, I guess you'd have to break open the card. But it's worth it for those jellies.

The best part of summer...

You know summer is coming to an end in Vancouver when the PNE is on. The fair is truly the best part of summer. The rides, the prize home, the animal farm and, of course, the mini donuts are among the best reasons to go each year.

This year, I tried a new food - deep fried Oreo cookies! I had heard how great they were from several of my friends. Naturally, I had to get some. Mmmm!

PNE 2009

Since I went on a rainy day, I was first in line to sit in the fighter plane! My little bro tagged along.

Back to school

It's too soon, I say! But...I don't have to go to school this semester or any semester! I finished my accounting program and I am officially designated.

It feels very nice to read books that I want to read.

In celebration, I decided to make a card similar to the one created by Mercedes Weber in the August edition of Stampin' Success. Stampin' Success is a monthly publication that is exclusive to demonstrators.


Teacher card

Who is "Mrs. Jones"? It could be any teacher really. I was in Mrs. Jones' English class in grade 10. My marks in that class weren't very good. I should have chosen a teacher that gave me better grades, but this was the only generic name I could think of that would fit on the card.

Enjoy & thanks for looking!

Kitten in a tree

Totally unrelated to paper crafts, but I thought I'd share a couple of photos I took during a peach picking adventure in Osoyoos.

This sweet looking kitten was fearless and fierce.

hiding in the fruit trees

Here it is -- pouncing on anyone who dared to pick fruit off of a tree.

Attack cat

Nothing will stop me from getting my peaches!
