Hey everyone - can you believe that March is almost over... which means there are only TWO DAYS LEFT in the incredible Sale-A-Bration promotion, which means there are only two days left to earn an exclusive FREEBIE with every $60 you order.

Speaking of freebies, how much do you LOVE the Make a Medallion stamp set! This stamp set is one of the free items - and I love how you can mix it up with a variety of colours to create some cute cards!

I was playing around with it earlier in the month to make a few cards and came up with these. If you placed an order this month you may have received one. The glitter paper was also a free item, but no longer available. Don’t miss your chance to earn a free item – email me or visit my online store to get your order in before the end of the month.

Another exciting thing coming up is a special Paper Pumpkin for the month of April! 

Stampin' Up! turned creative control of their April kit over to CEO, Sara Douglass, and the end result is stunning! Her style is, “bold, vibrant, and artistic—with a little bit of sass,” which is exactly how she described the kit. Sara designed this kit for YOU, so you can discover creativity through the eyes of our CEO while having an experience that is uniquely YOU! Get ready to embrace your inner artist and skip to the fun with Sara. 

As if a kit designed by Sara is not reason enough to sign up, there’s more! She’s including a FREE gift inside every April box! We’re keeping it a surprise, but you won’t want to miss it. 

What do you need to do? It’s simple—sign up by clicking here by April 10 - hey thats my birthday! Nothing I love more than celebrating with some crafting fun.

That also means April will be a fun month around here - special surprises so make sure to stay tuned!

Happy March!

Spring is in the air! As I type this the birds are going crazy outside my window - I love the sounds of spring. And a new month at Create and Share also means a new giveaway, new classes, a new newsletter and a new challenge!


I have changed up my March class a bit and have decided to keep it simple and fun. We will be making 3 different cards - 2 of each for a total of 6 cards - all birthday themed. Plus if you place a qualifying order the class is FREE!

There are 6 seats remaining so please email to reserve your spot. And if you reserve a spot for a friend you'll get a special surprise form me!

Check out the details here:

And take a closer look and the cards with this video:


I also have an Open Studio evening on Friday, March 17 from 6-9pm. Cost is $15 or Free with an order and includes access to my Big Shot, punches and select stamps and ink. There will also be one Make and Take project provided if you wish to do one. Light snacks provided. There are 2 seats remaining if you would like to reserve your spot please email me. 


If you attend a Create & Share event, participate in online challenges or discussions, sign up for a class or place an order with me in person, via email or online using the code #Y2NMK4NJ, you will be entered to win aa $15 CREATE AND SHARE GIFT CERTIFICATE!. Make sure to check out my Giveaway tab at the top to find out about all the upcoming/current giveaways!


I just sent out my March newsletter (check your junk folder) - if you wish to receive it in your inbox on the first of each month please let me know by sending me an email or signing up here.


So lets kick the month off with our monthly creative challenge. For each card you share your name will be added to the Monthly Giveaway! 


I would love to encourage you to get a handmade card in the mail to someone special. Everyone loves to receive happy mail - something other than junk mail or bills, so either take a card you already have created or create something new and take a picture of it and share in the Create & Share Facebook Group. Don't forget to decorate the envelope! (Extra entries included for each decorated envelope!)Then pop it in the mail!

Here are a few examples of the cards I will be putting in the mail this week... I can't wait to see what you create!
