Do you want/need a Scor-pal?

This awesome tool called the Scor-Pal was created by Diana Crick who is from British Columbia. She posted the terms of doing a bulk buy on the Stampin'Up Canada demos site.

I would like to organize a CALGARY ONLY bulk buy. I do not want to deal with shipping and packaging these boards up besides the shipping is the free part of the bulk buy.

These are the terms from Diana's email:
"If you have a group of friends together and order 6 or more shipping is free as long as they are going to one address. We also include a free Scor-Tool ($4.95) for each person.

With an order of 12 or more, free shipping, free Scor-Tool ($4.95) and a free roll of 5mm Terrific Tape ($3.50. Scor-Pal is $39.95 CDN."

Therefore, each Scor-Pal will be $39.95 + 6% gst ($2.40)= $42.35

(I do have to confirm this with Diana but my math skills tend to be right on its one of the pluses of being an engineer)

I have 3 people interested so far. I am going to leave this post at the top of my blog until next Saturday, July 21. (I have family in a few days next week) At which time, I can finalize the numbers and get an email out to those interested with payment instruction etc.

If you are interested, please either email me at or leave a comment on my blog making sure to include your email and where you are in Calgary. To pick up your scor-pal you will have to come by my place at a few set times to pick them up - I live in the community of Kincora in the NW (end of Beddington Trial)

Any questions, please email me.

ETA: Bulk buy is official with 6 participates. I am willing to add to the bulk buy until next Saturday, July 21.

What kind of ice cream are you?

You Are A Chocolate Ice Cream Girl

Dramatic. Powerful. Flirty.

Fishy Friends

I made the Fish card for Stamp Club where I taught them how to do masking as well as reverse masking. Because there were only 2 gals at our last meeting I made the seahorse card that night as well. The card was made using a punch out from a Marvy giga scalloped circle sponging on cool caribbean and having the fish/seahorse masked. I really enjoy using this set for making kid cards and I will definitely be keeping this one even though it is retired.

Supplies: (all supplies Stampin' Up unless indicated)
Stamps: Fishy Friends, Wonderful Words II
Paper: Natural White
Ink: Stazon Black, cool caribbean, Markers for watercolor, taken with teal, summer sun and tempting turquoise
Accessories: masks, giga scalloped circle punch out - negative image to sponge on cool caribbean

Bridal Happiness

My long time girlfriend, Carmen is leaving next week to get married. They are going away themselves to Victoria Island for a private destination wedding. Carmen and I grew up in small town Saskatchewan together meeting the summer between grade 1 and 2. We have been roommates at one time in University and she will be the maid of honour at my wedding in September. She is my oldest friend and I am so glad that we once again leave so close to one another as they reside in Airdrie just 20km north of Calgary.

I have gotten Carmen a 'something blue' brooch that she can pin under her dress or on a garter. I couldn't send her off without something for her wedding day.

This card is 6x6 and I stamped the dress in craft whisper white and embossed it with iridescent ice then I painted the dress with white craft. After I heat set it I put some white stickles along the detailing of the dress for some more sparkle, of course you can't see any of the sparkle from the picture. Carmen is more than worthy of a few hodgepodge accents so I added those as well. You know what I mean - it is hard to use the good stuff when your just making a card but when the card is going to your bestest friend you can pull out all the good stuff.

Supplies: (all supplies Stampin Up unless indicated)
Stamps: Warm Words, Wedding Dress - PSX
Paper: Patterned Paper - Chatterbox, Night of Navy, Bazzill Bling Darkest Blue in the blue package, so saffron
Ink: craft white, night of navy
Accessories: White Bazzill flower, Rhinestone brad from Su! Ice package (new catty), Hodgepodge hardware, White organdy - unknown
