It's Zoe time!

As you saw from my blog post yesterday it's a new month of new goodies. WHOOP! I already have been playing with the new Zoe Collection and loooove the colors in this kit. I decided to pull together a card, from a sketch that I found on Pinterest that I really liked. The size is 5.5 x 5.5, which I don't use often, but love the look of square cards!

I had these old blue chipboard letters that I've had since forever, and I thought they worked really nicely with the colors!

Let me know what you think!

Stayed tuned for more creations using our new products, all coming up this month!

Happy August!

Cheers to another month! Where is this summer going? I cannot believe it is August already, and yet when I pop into stores, I see back-to-school stuff everywhere already! Sloooowwwww it down people!

With another month comes of course new stuff, and everyone always loves new stuff! Check out the fun and fresh Zoe collection - it's definitely going to be a popular one! Check out the full line here!

And we can't forget a new Stamp of the Month! WOOT! This one is so versatile and is perfect for cards, layouts and so much more. Love the sentiments and different fonts. If you see the images outlined in red, that means they are compatible with the NEW Cricut Artistry cartridge.

Did I say a NEW Cricut cartridge? Oh yes I did! We have a brand new amazing cartridge, just released today, and it's fantastic! There are hundreds of images available spanning into multiple themes, seasons and holidays along with new fonts, banners, fun icons, shapes, layered shapes, borders and backgrounds. Eeeeeek!

Finally, check out the August campaign, which focuses on organization! Everyone loves to be organized (it's just that some of us are better at it than others, haha!)
We've got brand new tools to organize your stash, and freebies along with it!

Check out the amazingly priced new accessory roll-up AND the new marker roll-up, along with the FREE products you can get with it when you purchase them.

Make this an amazing month! Come back often to see all the new artwork I'll be whipping up with the new Zoe collection! As always, contact me anytime for help, or questions.

Thinking of You...

Eeeeeek! It's been a while since I've posted! Where is the summer going? It's going too mighty fast is where it's going! I hope everyone has had a great summer so far.

We had a huge crop here last weekend with 15 of our Ottawa based consultants. Whoop! What fun we had! Here's a pic of all of us sitting on my front porch, minus Pam who was taking the picture!

During our crop I was able to get my mojo on and craft a sympathy card for a friend who just lost her dear Nanny. Cards always cheer someone up when they are grieving, and when it's homemade, it's that much more special.

It's a simple layout, and I love the butterflies from THIS stamp set. Full recipe is at the end of the post!

So, did you get your Taste of Summer paper pack last month? Its a pretty bright and flashy paper set that just screams summer! Even better, I had a cute pic of me and my mini-me's at the beach to match! I thought the paper would look nice in smaller amounts, so I pulled together a layout using this sketch:
