But before we do that… let’s meet the new “Floribunda” stamp set!

I LOVE this whole frame of flora to colour.  I took my Copic Markers and coloured in all the base colours to my leaves and flowers. Then I took my Polychromos Pencils and added in all the fine little details.  I love how it all turned out!

Now check out all the amazing cards created with this delightful new stamp set…

Welcome back to another month of Skrappy Fun at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!!  We challenge YOU to make Anything BUT a Card!!!

For this challenge you can make anything you wanna....except a card! So that means bookmarks, gifts, scrapbook pages, journal art, planner pages, tags, boxes...pretty much anything that includes a krafty stamp!!

I began with the sweet little girl holding the book from the “My Happy Place” stamp set for my bookmark.  I first stamped her and then masked her off.  Then I laid down a soft Copic air brushed back ground of yellows.  I took the fun “Harlequin Stencil” and soft brushed on some Pumpkin Patch ink right over top.  I then peeled off my mask and coloured in my little girl with Copics.  I stamped the sentiment on using “Purple Petunia” ink.  And voila… a super fast bookmark!

Just make sure to include a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp and make sure it's a NEW creation! As soon as we have at least five people playing, we'll be giving away a PRIZE!!! yep! One lucky krafter will WIN a $20 gift voucher to the krafty shop!

Stars & Stripes!

In honour of all my US friends, I thought I’d create a red, white and blue page for July featuring the July Club Canvo collection.

I used the “Quick Quads Stencil” found in the July box to create the 8 notebook looking rectangles.  Then I used the “Circle Tracker & Banners Stencil” to create the focal circles in the center of each page.

I used all the fun stars and stripe stamps from the “Oh My, It’s July” stamp set to fill in all my circles.  I used Samba, Suede Shoes, Twilight and Black Jack inks on both spreads.


Thanks for stopping by!

No Patterned Papers This Time!

Hello and welcome to another fun Saturday Challenge!  Are you ready for some krafty fun?  We can't wait for you to play along and share your amazing krafty kreations!

Our hostess this week is brand new Krafty Girl, Brigitte!  And her challenge for you is NO PATTERNED PAPER!

With our challenge being no patterned paper, I figured I’d use a few fun stencils.  So I grabbed the adorable “Hip Hippo-ray!” stamp set along with the “Mermaid Scales Stencil” and the “Lots O’Dots Stencil” and have a ball…

I stamped my cute little hippos in Wicked Black ink and added some funny bathing suits to them using a Copic multi-liner pen. Then I used Salty Sea and Mermaid Melody inks to add water and waves to the sea. Then I took Totally Taupe and Creamy Caramel inks and created a beach.

Each and every Saturday we post a brand new challenge for the week and you are welcome to enter as many times as you like! These must be new creations and you are welcome to use any stamp, however using a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp will earn you double entries! Each submission will enter you into the monthly draw of a $40 gift voucher to the krafty shop!

We've also got a sketch to inspire you for the month of June! You don't have to use it but it's there for you to use if you need a little kick start....feel free to use it any time!

Don't forget that our FRUGAL FRIDAY SPECIALS are up! A selection of our fabulous stamp sets are on SALE 40% OFF but only for the weekend and only while supplies last!

Happy kraftin'!

Here Comes July!

For my Canvo, I love making an intro page.  I used my July Club Canvo to create this fun page…


I incorporated some Sauna, Samba, Stone Blue, Flirty Fuchsia and Eucalyptus inks.


For my first week of July I started off with a swoop.  I used the July Stencil to create the daily spots for the week.  I chose to use the warm summer colours; Limoncello, Polished and Pixie Dust and touch of Twilight.


The plane image and the days of the week stamps are from the "Bullet Journal Basics" stamp set.

And here’s the second page of the week…


Thanks for stopping by!  Have a creative Monday!

July Club Canvo: Calendar Page

Happy Tuesday all!

Today I’m sharing a fun page using the brand new July Club Canvo collection. The July collection contains a stamp set and a stencil this month.  This combination changes from month to month. You always get a stamp set but your second item can be a stamp set or a stencil.

When you subscribe to the monthly Club Canvo, your package is shipped ahead of time and arrives in your mail well before your July calendar needs to be put in your Canvo.  It sells for less when you sign up for the subscription.  If you happen to have missed a collection, they become available in the Catherine Pooler Shop later on.

Today I’m going to share just my beginning July calendar.

I used some fun CPD inks; It’s a Girl, Mint To Be, Mardi Gras and Stone Blue.  A nice summery colour palette!

Have a great day everyone!

~ Ally ~

Black & White Classics

Happy Monday all!  I’m over on the Power Poppy Blog today sharing my newest Inspire Me Monday edition.

Here’s a little peek of one of my cards…
Now go on to the blog and check it out… right HERE!

Club Canvo: Berry-licious!

Happy Monday all!  Today I’m going to share my Club Canvo spreads for June. 

What is a Canvo?
The Canvo is Catherine Pooler’s spin on the bullet journal and is a place for your calendar, your to-do lists and your daily musings or whatever you would like to place in it! On the pages of your Canvo journal, you’ll stay organized, track goals, and let your creative spirit free.

What is Club Canvo you say?
Creating your spreads each month is one of the best parts of bullet journaling. A fresh clean page and a new creative idea each month, just waiting for your ink to hit the paper. 

Each month you'll receive a themed stamp set and complimentary stencil or accessory. Club Canvo ships by the 5th of each month, giving you plenty of time to organize and plan and create your spreads. For example, your July Themed Club Canvo will ship to you at the start of June. You will have the products in your hands before they are available to anyone else! 

The best part? You get over $25 US worth of products for just $21.95* per month plus tax/shipping. 

So for the June Club Canvo, subscribers have already received their “Hello June” stamp set and their “Half Calendar Stencil” in the mail. These are items are now available in the CP Shop.

Here’s the introduction to June page I began with…

Then I created a 2 page calendar using that awesome stencil and some rainbow Spa Collection inks…

And a close up of those fun cluster of polka dots in the stamp set this month…

Then I went on to create my first week for June… my birthday week!

And here’s the latest pages I’ve put into my Canvo…

Here's a close up of the banner element...




A must have for almost all my Canvo pages is the “Milestone Birthday Sentiment Mix” stamp set.  It has all the numbers I use on my page spreads.


If you are looking for “all things Canvo”, please visit the shop HERE and have a great time browsing!

Which spread is your favourite so far?

Thanks for stopping by!
