We have been having a great time this weekend at Grand Bend's Oakwood Inn. The service has been way beyond our expectations. What a great bunch of ladies we have here. It has been a weekend of eating, creating, eating and so on. This is one of the cards that I made and it will be our Wonderful Wednesday card. I used the Arched Poppies from Memory Box. I can't take all the credit for this card. I saw this card being done on Ellen Hutson Classroom. I thought this is card we should make. What a great way to use up your scraps.

On one hand, I'm not a fan of creating Sympathy Cards. On the other, it's nice to create a handmade card to acknowledge in a special way one's empathy with regard to the loss of a loved one.
I really like the TIme Traveller collection and thought the prints and patterns would be perfect for just this occasion.
In addition to the Time Traveller Paper, I also used Time Traveller Tags and Tickets and 3x4 ATC Cards, Typewriter Keys and Flowers from the Time Traveller Collection.
On the top card, I used a gorgeous Paintable, colouring in my flower with a Gelato.
I created a few cards, as it's good to have them on hand. Sadly, my parents are at the age where they are losing friends much too often. It's comforting to them to send a special card
Sentiments for each card is from Impression Obsession.
You can find the Time Traveller Collection in the Store now!

What a beautiful day, hope you are enjoying it. This morning I want to share with you one of the kits that we will have available to purchase on line or at the retreat. I am sure many of you have heard of project life, well this is my take on project life. I have a lot of family pictures that are not like the pictures we take now. They are not pictures that I want to use on 2 page layouts but they are important enough for me to put them in an album. So Lynn and I came up with our own project life kits.

Last week I posted a card using the Mod Flower Die, so this is another card I did using the same die. But this time I made a stencil by cutting it out with scrap paper. You could use stencil paper but it is a little thick and you don't get all the details that is in this die. I placed the stencil over my Bristol Smooth card stock and sprayed with Prima's Bloom Spray, Sunshine. Don't know if you can see in the picture that there is a nice shimmer to the spray. I also used Thanks Cloud from Memory Box for my sentiment. You get a 2 for one with this die. You can use the cut outs together or separately. I used both. I popped up the cloud part. If you come out to Scrappin' Great Deals this Wednesday you will be able to make this card. Just remember to bring your basic tool kit and food donation for the food bank.
