Festival of Trees 2013

Hi, Everyone,

I feel so honoured.  Last week I had my first publication ever.  It was in the 2013 Winter issue of Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine and now this!

Now, more exciting news!

"Over the last 27 years, the Festival of Trees has raised $15.5 million for critically important cases at the University of Alberta Hospital, the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute and the Kaye Edmonton Clinic.

The Festival of Trees has become Edmonton's signature kick-off to Christmas event.  Guests enjoy the Gala Evening, Luncheon and Fashion Show, Santa's Breakfast, and of course, the chance to savour the splendour of hundreds of brilliantly decorated Christmas trees and seasonal displays."

This Year Treasured Memories entered the Festival creating "Jerome's Village".  I am very honoured to announce that as of this morning we won 3 Awards:

     1.  2013 Designer Competition "Creative Artwork" - GOLD 1st Place;
     2.  People's Choice Award "Creative Artwork" - Thursday November 28, 2013; and
     3.  People's Choice Award "Creative Artwork" - Friday November 29, 2013.

The Festival of Trees is on for 2 more days, so if you would like to get that warm & fuzzy feeling in your heart, please experience the Festival of Trees at the Shaw Conference Centre in Edmonton & check out our display!

Thank you everyone!

It's so important to be happy . . . by being nice to others & doing what you love to do.
I love creating & I love inspiring others.  Thank you to all those people who come to the store & show me the things they have created & say they have been inspired by me.  Thank you so much.  You ladies always make my day!

Exciting News!

Hi, Everyone,

I've been published!
Yes, it's true!  This is my very first & I am so excited!
A layout of mine has been published in the Winter Issue of Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine on page 136.  I am very honoured to have a full page under Seasonal Quotes.  If you get a chance, please check it out.

"Add dimension to your layouts by layering and curling flower petals, even wrapping them around pencil tips for tiny flower buds.  Curling the wings of your butterflies gives your page movement and interest.  Check out the banners on my layout made from the Graphic 45 bar code on their patterned paper. . . I never throw out usable packaging."

Tim Holtz Style Christmas Sampler

Hi, Everyone,
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas . . . la . . . la la . . . la la . . . well, in my studio anyway.

I've gathered all my Christmas themed Tim Holtz Embellishments, his new Christmas Binder, & have created a beautiful Sampler to spark your creativity:

Even the Paper Tree Charm on the spine is made from scratch.

We use Crackle Paint, Embossing Powder, Rub-ons & Alpha Stickers.  The tree is pop-doted & decorated with tinsel, twine & metal Mittens

I cut down Karen Burniston's 3D Sizzex Die to create the Bracket shaped pages & added on paper for extra depth.  Love the 3D sparkly snowflake & metal/crystal embellishment!

There is also a Bracket shape that fits with the 3D die creating the background pages.  We use Crackle Paints for the Birdcage & decorate them with dangly charms, even a crown.

 Check out the Laced Skates!  Of course we will be using Inka Gold for the blades.

A filled Christmas Stocking with one of Tim's new Skate Charms.

Tim's new Wreath Die decorated with Metal & his tiny tree.

Oh those Reindeer . . . metal too!

Oh so pretty decorated Christmas Bulb

Loving his Rub-ons.

Tim Holtz Style "Christmas SAMPLER"
