SOMEBODY TURNED A PAGE OR TWO ON MY CALENDAR  AND APPARENTLY IT’S JUNE, ALREADY!

I know, I know … I am so behind. Really, I run as fast as I can but and I do start early … sometimes “really” early and some how blogging just does not seem to fit in my day. I have “good intentions” but another day goes by and I did not make it here. Since the last time I blogged I have created soooooo many projects, for Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine, for Scrap & Stamp Arts, for Clearsnap’s catalog and advertising projects, for classes and of course for my family and friends. I share them in the wonderful ‘zine’s I write for and I plan to share them again, here but by that time  I am under another deadline and I am knee deep in ink creating another inky project. So the “project making” always seems to take precedence over the blogging.  One day, I will find the “elusive” time store, purchase 6 months worth of time or more and then I will be able to do all the things I set out to do.

I am getting ready to head out to “Be Creative Rubber Stamps” in Pitt Meadows, B.C. which is just outside Vancouver to spend a few weeks there teaching 5 classes. I am so excited about this as over the years, Haroldine has become one of my very best friends. Actually she is more than a best friend … I think we were meant to be twins and then the baby Angel got mixed up and sent her to British Columbia and me to Alberta. We actually work very hard while I am there but we giggle, laugh til we cry and create the whole time. ALL the ladies there, that take my classes are pure heaven to share with and Haroldine’s staff (who are really friends that work there) are such amazing people that my time there flies by and I leave with a heart full of treasured memories.

If you live in the area or simply will be visiting beautiful British Colombia you may want to check out “Be Creative’s” website, click on Cathie’s classes and sign up for a 3 hour class that sometimes (okay, alot of the time) goes longer because we do tend to have “a lot of fun” while we ink, stamp & create the time away. I would love to meet you or “see you again” if I have met you before. I’ve posted a couple of the projects here for you to peruse but they are all on Haroldine’s, Be Creative Rubber Stamp website. Notice the colors, these two projects have been created with Clearsnap’s, new, limited edition, pigment ink colors … a whole lot of yummy stuffed into 6 great new colors. Bring your smile and a few basic tools and we will make “white cardstock” sing!! When you see the projects REMEMBER … every single part of the projects start out as “white Superstock” and then thru the power of ink and rubber stamps & die cuts we transform “the white” to “anything but white”. There is NO preprinted anything in these projects. I promise you will take a “new” technique or two” home with you and some very special memories as well. See you there!

    And it has been way too long since I visited your blog!
    I do love your work and I also love that I feel I know your family and friends through that work.
    Please keep inspiring me and sharing those ‘warm and fuzzy’ feeling.

    I bought my 1st copy of Scrap & Stamp Arts magazine because of the article on this technique but I haven’t been able to find these ink pads that Cathie used. Help!! Where can I buy the Pool, Abyss, Cupid and Iris pigment ink pads from Clearsnap?? I really love the colours she used in her project. My local Michaels doesn’t have them and I tried searching Amazon with no luck. Simon Says was a no go too.
