Let’s Showcase!!!!

Hey Everyone!!!!! I hope everyone is well and finially enjoying some spring weather!!! I thought I would share with you some of my favourite pieces filled with of course my favourite Scrapbook/Mixed Media goodies!!!! Bloom Girls, Color Bloom Sprays, Prima Flowers & the always stunning “Say it in Crystals”. For those of you who follow me or know me, you know I am a Prima Marketing junkie!!! If you can find a piece I have created that doesn’t have Prima on it I would be SHOCKED!!  Lol! I hope you enjoy!!!

  

  

One of my favourite layouts using Prima’s Cartographer paper line, flowers, flair buttons and typewriter keys. Prima stamps, Gold Foil  & Antique Gold Color Bloom Sprays, Dollie Trim, and “Say it in Crystal”circles. 

  

  

Having two amazing little men in my life, Prima’s new Bedtime Stories paper line makes Scrapbooking baby photo’s so much fun.  Fussy cutting out all the little nursery rhymes, adding splatters, “Say it in Crystals” and flowers just add’s that extra little bit to an already amazing paper line. 

  

  

Bloom Girls & Mixed Media what an amazing combination. Cotton Candy & Peony Color Bloom Sprays, molding paste in a Prima stencil, Finnabair clear acrylic stamps, flower centers, wire thread & “Say it in Crystals”. So many elements, techniques and media equals so much fun and a beautiful piece I love.

  

   

 

Taking Finnabair’s cute little Bird House and completely covering it in Prima’s Coffee Break paper line, fussy cutting out flowers from both the Bloom Girl and from the paper. Tons of pop dots and feathers. Water coloring the Bloom Girl and adding matching Coffee Break flowers, then twisting and placing the always stunning Prima vines. I love how it turned out.

I hope you all enjoyed some of my favourite pieces as much as I do.

The Inked Stamper Goodbye!

Well I know it’s been a while, needless to say I have been busy! As always, I swear that each day goes by faster & faster. I can’t believe Christmas was here and gone and another year is here! 2015 is going to be so much fun I can feel it!!!!!
Anyways as you probably noticed the title of this post is The Inked Stamper Goodbye! 😦 It’s with a sad face but happy heart I say goodbye to an amazing journey. This last weekend my favourite Scrapbooking store and employer closed it’s doors. Another locally and family owned store is gone. Though it is truly sad knowing I won’t be heading there tomorrow for my regular Saturday shift I know with all my heart my Scrapbooking and crafting journey is hardly over but really just starting. First and for most I have to Thank the owner of the store Dawn, not only was she absolutely amazing to work for she is also one of my Best Friends. She took a chance on me, let me teach at her store when I had never taught a class in my life! She let be creative in my way, she made me part of the team with trust and loyalty that not just everyone gives anymore. She stood by my side when I had my doubts, when I was nervous, and when I need extra time. This was my DREAM job! I got to meet, shake hands and hang out with some of the most talented and amazing artists in this industry. I am truly blessed to even call some of them my friends now!!! Me! Little ol Me!!! Jamie Dougherty, Limor Webber, Finnabair, Cari Fennel, Donna Downy, and Dina Wakley!!!! I got meet and take classes with all of these AMAZING artists all because of Dawn and The Inked Stamper! There are not enough words to say how truly grateful I am to her!!!!!!!!!!! I would never be where I am today without her! Jamie Dougherty Bloom Girl Design Team, teacher and designer! I am blown away! Not only did I get to meet amazing artists I got to meet & make amazing friends. Friends that never missed one of my classes, friends that came to the shop just to see me and talk, friends that a support me and encourage me!!! You truly couldn’t ask for anything more. How many people actually jump out of bed to go to work?? Not many?!?! Well I was one of them, and I am truly thankful for every kind word, every piece of advice, every encouragement and every single one of you!!!!!!! This post is not a goodbye but an I will see you soon on our next adventure together!!!!! I love you all!!!!
