About Me  

My hometown is Calgary, AB but I was born and raised in Vancouver, BC. We moved to Calgary in 1997. I was a stay at home Mom for over 6 years to 6 1/2 year old Taylor and 3 year old Jaiden until I went back to work part-time as a CSR. My husband Bill and I have been married for 8 years. Like most people we lead a very busy life!

I attended my first Stampin' Up! workshop over 3 years ago and was just blown away, I immediately was hooked! I never thought I could do anything crafty let alone make a business of it. I became a demo in May 2004 and I absolutely love it!

What's New?

Summer is cut short for us as Taylor started school August 16th, it just doesn't feel right getting settled in for school that early, school to me has always been in September and of course you always associate September with Fall, well that doesn't seem to be the case right now in Calgary, the last few days have been around 30C.

I would like to extend a warm welcome to Lisa Worthington who joined the Stampin' Up! Family...Congratulations Lisa, I look foward to working with you and wish you much success!

Using Ribbons on Scrapbook and Altered Art Projects

Ribbons are one of the easiest ways to embellish and add a little pizzazz to any scrapbook and altered art project. Here are some fun ideas for your next project!

One of the most obvious and yet overlooked use for ribbon is bows! Bows can convey all kinds of sentiments. A big pink bow is sweet on a little girls scrapbook page. A tiny ivory bow on a shabby chic page adds a hint of elegance. Try out different colors and different sizes to experiment with the feelings they portray.

Use ribbon as a horizontal or vertical accent behind all of your page elements.

Tie a small piece of ribbon in a knot and adhere it to the page for a quick little accent. Add a charm for some fun and movement!

Set a row of eyelets across the side of a page and then weave the ribbon through. Experiment with how you weave the ribbon -- a simple up and down run or wrap the edge of the page by only putting the ribbon down through the holes.

Use a dental floss threader to pull ribbon through small holes. (Dental floss threaders can be found on the toothpaste aisle of your grocery store.) After trying out a dental floss threader, you will wonder how you ever threaded ribbons and fibers without one!

Stampin' Up! It's all about creativity.
