This Monday I’m celebrating my 34th birthday! YAY! Thank you to everyone who have already sent me early birthday wishes!!! To celebrate I decided to have a…
Birthday Bash SALE!!!
At first I was going to put some of my favorite stamps and items on sale but I quickly realized that everything in the YNS store are my favorites!! LOL Instead I randomly selected stamps and placed them into discount bins for 10% – 40% off HERE.
I LOVE bling and fun buttons so I also decided to put all the brads, buttons, pearls/gems and baubles as sale so be sure to check these items out as well!
Also I now carry individual pots of twinkling H20’s so be sure to check out these sparkly paints! Those of you who met me in Oshawa this past weekend know that these are one my favorite products along with the embellie gellie!!! We all had so much fun at the make and take table!
My Birthday Bash Sale ends Oct 26th at midnight so be sure to grab them stamps and stuff you want at these amazing prices!

Thank you so much for all your amazing comments and emails about the adorable ScrapFest Cropper Fhiona! Many of you hopped along and joined in our fun hop and scooped her up for your own personal collection. YAY!
I had an absolute blast at ScrapFest and met so many amazing people! I’d like to thank all my wonderful customers who stopped in to say Hi! I loved meeting all of you and it was great to see some familiar faces from ScrapFest in Kitchener too! Special thanks to Christine from Dol Creations who made an effort to track me down and introduce herself – it was so great to meet you Christine!!!
I’m also so grateful for my family who helped me prepare for this event. Everyone was there with me as well to help out and support me – thank you so much! I really couldn’t do this without all of you!
I’m still unpacking and winding down from all the excitement and waiting on some pictures that my family took of the event so while I’m waiting to get the remaining photos here is a picture of my sister and niece helping with the final set up of the booth on Friday night…

ScrapFest Cropper Fhiona!!!!
Whew! I’ve been keeping this a secret for a very long time and I am so excited to finally reveal this adorable stamp!!!! Isn’t she just the cutest?!? She was designed with love for Lisa who is the proud president of ScrapFest here in Ontario. She wanted an adorable stamp to represent her company and Fhiona was just the right fit. I am so grateful that she trusted me with this wonderful project – thank you Lisa!!!! It was an absolute pleasure working with you!

— It’s time for YNS Challenge #27 – YAY! The sweet and talented Beth is our hostess this week and her challenge to us is Nicely Negative so you need to stamp with white ink on a black/dark cardstock somewhere on your card. Be sure to pop over to the challenge blog and review all the great ideas Beth has for you for her Nicely Negative challenge.
I’ve stamped a few different Halloween accessory images from various YNS sets with Brilliance platinum ink onto black cardstock and then distressed the edges just slightly and finished my card off with some fun Halloween ribbon and a creepy spider button. This card was so easy to make and I love how it turned out.
Thanks Beth for the great challenge! Hop on over to the YNS Challenge blog to check out all the details! We hope you play along for your chance to win some YNS bucks to spend on stamps at the YNS store!
Also my Holiday Hop sale is coming to an end and this is the last day to get 15% off your order! Visit the YNS Store today and grab a bargain – online code is YNSOCT15
