"Joy" Holiday Card


Hi! Pearl here to share a holiday card made with the beautiful new collection, Chalet. You know it's never too early to start thinking about the holidays because it'll be here before you know it. So get a head start now!



I created this card using beautiful papers from Chalet and my trusty die-cutting machine. There are so many great color combos from this collection. I wanted to create something soft and peaceful, so I paired a nice light grey with a peach contrast and give it just enough sparkle and brightness with red rhinestones. And the perfect way to finish off the card is with the beautiful foil stickers from the collection.

Thanks for stopping by!

"Thanks" Handmade Thanksgiving Cards

Fall is coming fast. I love the colours and the crisp fall air. Thanksgiving is celebrated in October for Canadians. I thought a couple of fall themed thank you cards would be perfect for this month.




I pulled out the Yesteryear collection for these cards. The burlap was a great touch to add texture and visual interest. I used the back side of the printed burlap (a great B-side). The twine from the sundries package made for a nice finishing touch.



To help define the layers of paper, I inked the edges with matching ink. I layered a lighter orange leaf under the strong orange one to help the leaf pop just a little bit extra. Foam dots were tucked under the edges of the top leaf to help keep the shape of the leaf.

I always create at least two cards based on one theme as it helps to build up the stash of cards. I find the second card always comes together more quickly as can I just modify the design.

Thanks for coming by!

"Better with You" Fall Card


I am so ready for summer to be over. Don't get me wrong, I love the sunshine, but Autumn is such a colorful, warm and fun time of the year. I love picking out pumpkins, decorating for Halloween and Thanksgiving and spending time with the family! I was so excited to start fall off right, that during the first week of September as we were going through a heat spell, I decided "enough of the heat" I am decorating for fall! I pulled down all my decor, set it up and even put my fall wreath on the front door, even though it was a 100 degrees. My poor husband came home from work, saw the wreath, and just shook his head smiling.



What better way to start off autumn, than by using SEI's new line, Yesteryear to create a beautiful card for a friend? Every release from SEI is beautifully designed with rich, deep colors; lovely textures and design elements and fun embellishments. I think this is why I have loved designing with SEI product--amazing quality products and rich design elements, perfectly combined to create quality projects. Yesteryear is no exception! The minute I saw this collection, I instantly was inspired to play with every product in the line.



My first bit of inspiration for this card came from the gorgeous frame cardstock stickers! I love how elegant they are, and knew they'd frame the embellishments perfectly. After I trimmed some background ppaer from the Yesteryear Creative pack, I then began embellishing the card. In one frame I added a leaf and acorn rub on, and then layered an acorn cardstock sticker above it. In the other frame, I layered a gold foil die cut leaf over a pin and ribbon. Since, I wanted each embellishment to shine and not have the frames looked cluttered, but balanced, I added two more spots of interest. I adhered a golden jewel from sundries to a leaf cardstock sticker in one corner, and then placed a beautiful foiled leaf over a button, both of which are available in sundries. To finish the card off, I stamped a sentiment on the banner cardstock sticker, which I am just ga ga over!

I loved this collection, and I think you will too! SEI's fall collections are always one of the most inspirational releases!

Halloween Treat Bags

We love Halloween! Planning how to decorate the front porch and picking a costume consumes a couple of weeks for the month of October in our house. The fun part of all of it is the kids' enthusiasm!


I created a couple of treat bags for the kids this year. I pulled out the Yesteryear collection and the chalkboard labels to use. The cork embellishments were the perfect starting point for the little bags. I carefully layered the paper and tags together. I pulled out my glue gun to attach the paper tags to the burlap bags.



Tip -stuff something inside the bag to prevent the glue from seeping through the burlap so the sides don't end up sticking together. I added the twine bow at the end, tying the bow and then using a glue dot to attach it.

These little bags will be put to good use by showing up as a surprise in lunch bags!

Thanks for visiting!

Simple Advent Calendar


Hi! Pearl here to share an advent calendar inspired frame.



I created this frame using beautiful papers from Chalet and my trusty die-cutting machine. I've always wanted to play on the advent calendar and use it as a way to display or capture everyday leading up to Christmas. I plan to slip in a small photo or message everyday. It's such a fun and interactive frame!

Thanks for stopping by!

Noel Christmas Cards


When it comes to creating Christmas cards, an easy pattern to follow and a great collection to work with are must-haves. Working with the beautiful, new Noel collection was easy, and my simple pattern made for quick cards:



Each card is 4.25 inches by 5.5 inches. I started with a 4x5.25 base of patterned paper and then added a 4x2 piece of a contrasting pattern to the top. I rounded the right side corners, then adhered the block to my card.





Next, I adhered a piece of sequin trim where the patterns meet and clustered embellishments to the left. I adhered my focal point stickers to cardstock, trimmed them out, then added them to the cards with foam adhesive.



Although each card is different, using a pattern made quick work of them. And using the gorgeous Noel collection means that mixing and matching patterns and embellishments is a breeze. If you're getting a head start on your holiday cards, give Noel and a simple pattern a try for yourself!

Simple Holiday Cards


Hi! Pearl here to share clean and simple holiday cards using stickers from the Chalet collection.



The Chalet stickers are perfect for holiday card making. Here, I used my die-cutting machine to create "windows" so that the label stickers appear as though they're floating in the speech bubble. I then applied the deer stickers to finish the card. Clean, simple, and easy to make if you're looking to mass produce cards for this upcoming holiday season. It's never too early to start working on your holiday cards.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Card


I love mixing patterned paper and embellishments together, especially when I can pull patterned papers from different collections together!




This card uses two SEI collections, the newest Noteworthy memory system and one of my favorites, Vanilla Sunshine from the Winter 2012 release.



I love the cute little word bubble stickers that come in the Noteworthy memory system and embellished them with festive and playful birthday sentiments found in the Vanilla Sunshine perforated paper sheet along with a cute cupcake and star stickers that are found in the Noteworthy memory system. I added a punched heart and star with a brad from the Vanilla Sunshine embellishments. Even though the collections aren't the same, they had similar colors and coordinating patterns so they still work perfectly! All these pretty embellishments are layered on a patterned paper base from the Noteworthy memory system.
