The winner is Julia Stainton who liked Lizzie's Facebook Page and said: These are so cool! I've never seen them before. I came from Sarah Moerman's blog and love the Elegance clip!

Congrats Julia! Please contact me via the button on my sidebar with your contact info (email) so I can pass it on to Lizzie.

Thanks to Lizzie for the wonderful giveaway!

Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit: Nuts About You (& GIVEAWAYS)!

Hi everyone!

I'm back to share a final card made using the Simon Says Stamp October 2016 Card Kit and to remind you about a couple of giveaways I have going on.
Here's today's card:


For this card I stamped a bunch of the small images from Simon's Nutty Over You Stamps onto their Burnt Orange Cardstock with the cube of Ranger's Bright Tangelo Archival Ink to create a tone on tone effect. I die cut a heart using one of Simon's Nested Hearts Dies and stamped the sentiment and the large squirrel. I then stamped the same squirrel onto a larger solid stamp to create a mirror image before stamping it onto my card. It was difficult to get a good impression with the squirrel being solid so I coloured both squirrels with a Warm Gray Copic Marker. I then stamped some greenery and berries and gave the squirrels a Little B Acorns Mini Sticker to share. I finished the card off with strips of Simon's Dark Chocolate Cardstock and Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Fall 6x6 Paper.

If you're interested, you can pick up the Simon Says Stamp October 2016 Card Kit for just $29.95 + shipping. If you'd like to receive this kit and future kits for only $24.95 + shipping per month, you can SUBSCRIBE HERE.


Heidi, owner of Simon Says Stamp, has given me an extra October 2016 Card Kit to pass on to one of you! Just leave a comment on any or all of my October Card Kit posts and I'll announce a winner Wednesday September 28th.

I also wanted to remind you that you have until Saturday (when I'll announce a winner) to participate in my Lilla Rose Flexi Clip giveaway.

Lilla Rose Hair Clip Inspired Card (& GIVEAWAY)!!!

Hi everyone!

I'm stopping by today to share some info about a great new-to-me hair clip, a card I made inspired by the one I received, and a giveaway!

I was contacted by Lizzie Chang, an Independent Lilla Rose Stylist, about trying out one of their Flexi Clips. I've tried similar styles of clips in the past and they have always been loose and slipped out of my thin curly hair. I was excited to see if this one would be different and I'm happy to say that it is! With sizes ranging from extra small to extra large, Flexi Clips work well with all hair types and lengths.

The clip I have is called Sable and it has beautiful black beads set with black nickel. I wanted something classic I could wear with lots of different clothes but they also make clips in all sorts of wonderful colours.

When going out I usually wear my hair in a partial ponytail. I wasn't 100% sure which size to order (even after watching their sizing video) and Lizzie was more than helpful with this.

Also, even though I live in Canada the clip arrived from California about a week after I ordered it!

Here it is in action (thanks to my kids for taking these pictures for me):


I wore the clip to church and well into the afternoon without it budging one bit. Yay!


I took it out before going into the pool since I wasn't sure what the chemicals would do to it. Afterwards I thought I'd see if it would work with my hair all up in a messy bun and since my hair is so thin I'm able to wear it up with the clip even though it's an extra small!


Like I said at the beginning of my post, I made a card inspired by the Lilla Rose Flexi Clip Lizzie sent me.

Here it is:


Even though I silver heat embossed the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp's You Matter Stamp Set and the images from Simon's Henna Patterns Stamp Set (and used silver sequins) it looks like gold to me in the first picture. I'm guessing it's from my camera flash? Anyways, I chose to stamp these images since they reminded me of the patterns and shapes in my Sable Flexi Clip


As an Independent Lilla Rose Stylist, Lizzie has generously offered for me to give away a Flexi Clip (one clip up to a $16 value, for residents of the US and Canada, Flexi of the month excluded)! This giveaway is open to readers who are not already registered as Lilla Rose Customers in order to spread the Lilla Rose love and give someone the chance to try a Flexi Clip who has not yet had the opportunity.

Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit: Thank You Card (& GIVEAWAY)

Hi everyone!

I'm back to share another card made using the warm and cozy Simon Says Stamp October 2016 Card Kit!
Here's the card I'm sharing today:



I thought many of the little images in the Simon Says Stamp Nutty Over You Stamp Set would fit perfectly in the circles from Simon's Ring Frame Die. Some stamping and inking, along with some of the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Fall 6x6 Papers, and this card came together easily. I finished it up with a white heat embossed greeting on a strip of Simon's Dark Chocolate Cardstock and a Little B Acorn Mini Sticker.

If you're interested, you can pick up the Simon Says Stamp October 2016 Card Kit for just $29.95 + shipping. If you'd like to receive this kit and future kits for only $24.95 + shipping per month, you can SUBSCRIBE HERE.

Heidi, owner of Simon Says Stamp, has given me an extra October 2016 Card Kit to pass on to one of you! Just leave a comment on any or all of my October Card Kit posts and I'll announce a winner Wednesday September 28th.
