Wood Crate

Seashore Stampers August Blog Hop is showcasing "Something Other Than A Card".  It was not a hardship for me to decide what to post, as I absolutely love the Wood Crate Framelits along with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.

The crates are so versatile.  In my photo I have die-cut them with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper holding 3x3 cards.  Fill with 3 or 4 thank you cards with envelopes as a gift for a special friend.

I will be using these crates at Christmas Dinner, die-cutting with some festive paper from Stampin' Up!, fill with chocolates, wrap with cellophane, tie with a bright ribbon with a Merry Christmas tag and put at each place setting for guests to enjoy.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

A Wedding

The month of June is very popular for weddings but ours happened later in the year.

A momentous day in our life!  Our wedding took place in November, 1968 - 49 years ago.  We were married in Winnipeg, Manitoba and, believe it or not, the sun was shining and no snow on the ground which is unusual for Winnipeg at that time of year.

A white brocade dress, 7 ft. chapel veil (a family heirloom), pale pink carnations, my husband in his Military uniform and surrounded by family and friends. Great memories!!

Here is my wedding cake card.

Honoring Father's Day

My father is no long with me unfortunately.  He passed away a very long time ago, but there is not a day that I don't think of him.He was the kindest and most loving father.  In his honor I am writing this post and have created a card which I think he would have loved.

I grew up in Winnipeg and every year my parents and I would drive to Banff for our summer vacation, camping along the way.  My dad loved the mountains and especially loved the Moraine Lake area.  I though the In The Meadow stamp set with trees, a lake and the mountains in the background would be appropriate to honor my dad.

Dad, this one's for you with all my love!

Celebrate Mother's Day

The month of May is a time to celebrate Spring!  Spring is my favorite season ... budding flowers, sprouting grass, blossoms on the trees, a hint of warmth in the air, birds chirping and the fresh smell in the air that a Spring rain brings.

May is also the time to celebrate Mother's Day.  I can't celebrate it with my mom as she passed away a very long time ago, but I have family and close friends that are great mother's so this post is to celebrate them.  Mothers, celebrate your day! Here's my card celebrating Mothers along with Stampin'Up! products used to create the card.

Balloon Adventures

Balloons make me smile and feel happy so when I saw the Balloon Adventures stamp set in the new Occasions Catalogue, I knew it would become a favourite.

The Balloon Adventures stamp set is so versatile and when paired up with the Balloon Pop-up Thinlits Dies lets the imagination run wild.

On the front of this card I have used the Party Animal Designer Series Paper for the present topped with a glitzy bow created from one of the Thinlets Dies.  There are lots of colourful designs in the DSP package and the Thinlits Dies have a great pop-up balloon die which I used inside the card.

From tags, to boxes, to shaker cards, the Balloon Adventures stamp set (page 5 in the Occasions Catalogue) lets you create bright products for all your wild adventures and celebrations.  To enhance your products, don't forget the Emerald Envy Taffeta Ribbon and Party Animal Embellishments along with Party Animal Designer Washi Tape.

I hope you enjoyed today's post. If you would like to order any of the supplies used for this card, please contact me.
