Have you heard...

 of Léa France? Well it is about time you did!!

"Léa France is an American company that produces reusable plastic templates that are used to create an endless possibility of layouts.  These stencils were inspired by the European method of scrapbooking, which is more of a collage style page, 
with very little text, and hardly no embellishments.  Since 2009, Léa France has been the exclusive designer and seller of photo layout stencils in the US.  Debbie Pickel officially became the Canadian representative in September 2016."

We are very excited to welcome Debbie Pickel as a Vendor at our National Scrapbooking Day All Day Crop!! She can't wait to introduce this product to us!  Debbie will be on hand to demonstrate the stencils and of course to sell them!  She has also generously donated a door prize for our event as well!  One lucky cropper will win a 2hr private tutorial class for up to 4 people!! Thanks so much Debbie!!

May Calendar Class

Good morning, and Happy Monday! Today, I wanted to show you the layout for the May Calendar Class. I used these papers from Kaisercraft's Cherry Tree Lane Collection. I wanted to create a layout that you could use for your Garden Photos or your Mother's Day Photos. I added these butterflies from Prima and used this stamp from Impression Obsession as well as the Heart String Die from Memory Box. To make the Bird Cage (lower right hand corner on page 2), I used these Distress Crayons and the Woodgrain Cardstock pictured below. Then I added some of the Ranger "Vintage" Distress Collage Medium to age the look of the Bird Cage.


The date for this class is Saturday, May 6 at 12:30 p.m. This is National Scrapbooking Day and we will be at the Komoka Community Center in the Gym. It promises to be an exciting day with lots of classes, cropping and good food. Hope you can join us for a class or the crop or both.


Have a great week, everyone!

Colourblock #2



Good Morning Everyone,

Want to share with you a card I made with the Colorblock # 2 die from Frantic Stampers. I love that I can make so many variations of a card by just cutting out different colours of card stock or designer papers. I embossed the back piece with a daisy embossing folder I had, thought this would give more dimension to the card. Then to back the colorblock cut out,  I used a vellum paper that had polka dots on it. You also get the words Hello and Congrats with this die set.




Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Altenew Thank you!


Happy Friday! Sharing another Altenew card with you, I can not get the picture right, very frustating, believe me, IN REAL LIFE, this card has soft colours and sparkle...
The stamps I used are from this set, lovely flowers, leaves and different sentiments
I started by making a background with Tim Holtz oxide inks, faded jeans and iced spruce, I used an old Prima stencil and spritzed, dabbed, played and let those new inks do their job!!
The sentiment is heat embossed in silver, the leaves are stamped with memento gray flannel ink and the flowers were embossed on a separate piece of paper, coloured with the oxide inks and cut out, after they were dry. For sparkle, I added the wink of Stella pen. Some Nuvo drops, how can you make a card with no Nuvo drops?? This sample will be on display, you should really see this in person, lol!
                               Till next time, Anja
