Well Played


Have you seen the new line from Carta Bella? it’s called Well Played, it is a game theme paper line!  The feel of the paper is amazing! the quality of the graphics is great, you really must check it out!





I have the whole line in house, and I am going to feature it this month as the festive season is upon us. Who doesn’t have guests coming in for the holidays? and we all have a “game night” at one point, either to pass time or to keep the kids busy.

I made a card for my nephews birthday using this line, it’s masculine but not childish. Great for the those layouts of card events such as a Saturday Euchre game at the local Legion or club house. Such fun to make your own coasters for the game table! how about bottle labels? the ideas are endless!!

It covers many different played games such as chess, dominoes, cards, puzzles and even shuffleboard! such a cool line, I really can’t say enough about it. It’s bright, fun and very well played!

You don’t want to miss out on this one!!


We also have some kit’s from Carta Bella, Rough and Tumble

Such a cute line for that little guy in your life, it would work very well for a baby boy card, or a themed boy baby shower. So cute and very well priced!!

Come in and check it out!

My mother in law is also arriving on Sunday the 3rd, and I am so grateful for the visit. We are good friends and get along wonderfully, she has only seen pictures of the shop, so I cant wait for her to actually be inside and looking around. Maybe even make a few things before she leaves. My husband is thrilled to spend some time with her and will be taking her to the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto to watch the horses do their thing.
Our anniversary is also coming up on the 10th of Nov, I made my husband his card already! lol wonder where he will buy his? lol

Time flies


I can’t believe it’s October already! Where did the summer go? Fall is my favourite time, the leaves are changing, the nights are cooler ( great for sleeping) and we all start to cook our “winter suppers”. Nothing better than coming into the house when the ovens been on and it smells divine! Yummy!

I know a lot of people don't like the winter, I’m a winter baby so it’s only natural for me lol brings out the Ho!Ho! in me. I love all the festive decor and family gatherings.

It’s also time to start getting your Christmas lists started! In house we have new stock from Carta Bella that is just beautiful! truly, just the texture alone is awesome!  it’s double sided and has beautiful embellishments to add to your page or card.


Here are a few cards that I have made using Carta Bella’s “so this is Christmas”








Come out for a visit and look around, the trees are changing and the colours are beautiful! well worth the drive…………

Here is a look at my Authentique ‘s Joyous cards:

Fall is in the air…..

You can feel the chill in the air thru the evenings, that wonderful smell of fields being harvested! All the kids are back in school and before long the snow will be flying and we will be spending more time in doors! I know this is when most people do their scrapbooking projects and start thinking about Christmas cards, we have a huge supply of all the newest Christmas goodies from the best companies i.e. My Mind’s Eye, BoBunny, Authentique, just to name a few.


I have a wish list made up, all you have to do is fill it out, ( take it home or leave it here ) and then your special Santa can do all his shopping here and I will gift wrap all of it for free. How is easy is that? So get in and fill out those forms, or leave your special someone a wish list and come in and see me.
Christmas has always been my favourite time of year and with all the new Christmas lines arriving in stores, I’m sure getting in the holiday spirit early! lol how can you not when you see the paper and goodies?? I think this is the best year I have seen in a while, the companies have gone all out to ensure that we have that special paper line and embellishments to get a head start this year.
Don’t forget our grand opening is Sept 14 2013, doors open at 9:30am until 6:00 pm. Hope to see you there!
