I think I am happy to see February come to an end because it means that spring is just around the corner and we get to see the sunshine more and the days continue to get longer. BUT February wasn't a slow month here at Create & Share - I thought I would share a few pictures from some of the events that took place over the month.


This was my second year to host this class and I was thrilled to have such a large group of guys attend. AND they did AWESOME! I was so proud of them - they completed a shaker card and a Lots of Love box that they could fill with candy or a gift card. 

I LOVE how each of the guys made the card their own by changing it up and putting their own spin on it. They played and created and joked around and I think had some fun :)

Here is what I received from my hubby who attended:

I know this is something I will do again - and maybe I need to add a Men's Only Emergency Kit card class.... what guy doesn't need a birthday card, anniversary card and more on hand. 


On February 9th I held my first game night and it was SO MUCH FUN!

We played several games of bingo where the ladies won prizes ranging in prizes from a scrapbooking kit, an embossing paste kit, a watercoloring kit and our grand prize was the new Brusho with watercolour paper. 

 We had a LOT of yummy food and the ladies made 4 cards using the supplies they took home - all using the Bottles and Fizz stamp set and coordinating paper. 

Everyone went home with a their stamp set, papers, embellishments, FREE gift from me (a H clear block) and lots of other fun stuff!

I can't wait to start planning my next BINGO night! 


Each month I host a card class on a Friday night from 7-9:30pm. You make 6 cards, two of each design. I keep it simple by doing a lot of the prep work for you so you can enjoy a relaxing evening.

It was a small group but we had a lot of fun and the girls did enjoy their chances at winning more prizes... we always play games at the monthly card class!

Here is a quick look at the cards we made.

We used a few items from the Petal Passions suite to create this sweet, romantic notecard.

I was so excited to play with the Myths and Magic stamp set and paper - how cute are these!

Our Sale-A-Bration card this month used the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set and the Bermuda Bay Shimmer Ribbon.


And I have participated in three blog hops this month and been sharing them with you.

I ended up making a very simple card as I didn't have a lot of time - it's been a crazy month with getting a new job, being sick and holding several events. BUT thats what I love about Stampin' Up! products - they coordinate so well I was able to put this together very quickly.

Welcome to the second month of 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop! 

I’m so excited to be part of this fun collaboration with Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world. And this month we are focusing on SALE-A-BRATION! 

If you are not aware of how Sale-A-Bration works - please check out my post here.

I fell in love with the Party Pandas stamp set - they are perfect for any birthday card or sweet note.
 I love that it works for a child or an adult!

I've also used two other Sale-A-Bration items in todays featured card:

So here is what I created:

I LOVE a good shaker card! I added the shading around the pandas with Smoky Slate ink and a blender pen. And I used the Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends to colour their hats.

I added the sentiment "here's to celebrating you!" from the Perennial Birthday stamp set.

You can see how easy this card is to make by watching the video:
