Let the Music Move You



It’s release day at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps and that means we have a fabulous blog hop for you sharing all of our favourite images!

For today’s hop, I decided to work with the darling Lulu from YOU’RE A ROCKSTAR! Whether you see this cutie with a violin or a fiddle, there is no mistaken the music she brings to any card!  Coloured with Copics and teamed up with some Kaisercraft paper and May Arts ribbon, I think this card is a great way to brighten a day!

You will get to see ALL of the new images today as you sit back and enjoy our JULY Krafty Hop! As you hop from blog to blog, be sure to leave a comment at each and every stop because one lucky stamper will win a $25 gift card!

Oh Snap!

Camera-frontIt’s Day TWO of the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps JULY previews and I love the great new stamps by artist Annie Rodrigue – called OH, SNAP!!

Camera-closeupAfter I coloured up this gal with Copics, I teamed her up with some Doodlebug paper!  I kept the layers simple because I really wanted to show off that camera themed paper – how picture perfect, right? The sentiment is hand lettered, and if you want to know how, come on over to a post I created earlier this week for Kimmie!

Below you will find all the Krafty Girls who have goodies to show you today and while you’re visiting their blogs, be sure to leave some love at each stop because one lucky stamper is going to WIN a gift card to the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Shop!! Woohoo!!!

Thanks for stopping by today!


A little TuTu-orial

Many of you already know that I have two little girls, so “girlie” projects abound here at ScrappyCanuck Studios.  Well, today is no exception.  My oldest daughter (nicknamed “T.T.”) turned five earlier this month, and she is my dancer extraordinaire! So it seemed fitting to have “T.T’s Tutu Birthday party” this year, and I have some fun projects and even a tutu-orial for you!


When I had the chance to be a part of the final round for May Arts Design Team call, I immediately knew that I wanted to play with some of the beautiful new tulle that is available in three different widths and all sorts of pretty colours! So let’s get started with a little tutorial to show you an easy technique to create a faux tutu!

(Can you tell that I had a head cold??!! ;))

This is a great, easy technique that you could use in all sorts of ways!



…like some fun tutu treat containers filled with white chocolate popcorn (each container used approximately 3 yards of tulle)!



…or even around a simple fondant cake to add dimension and texture (and to hide a variety of decorating boo-boos).

Once I get my hands on some more of this gorgeous tulle, I think I’ll make T.T. a little “tutu” to wear around her bun!  And while ballerina-themed projects are a perfect fit for this technique, think about how cute this would be with fairies and even princess decor!

Well, that’s it for me today.  I have a couple of other projects I created for the party that I’ll share with you next week (click here for a link). I hope you’ll come back to check them out!

Thanks for stopping by!
