Formerly Known as Stamping Mama of 2

Hello Everyone!

I have recently made some changes to my blog. I have been pondering for some time now about changing my blog name and also will be doing so over at my Etsy shop. When I first started my blog I was only making cards and the name StampingMamaof2 worked well for me. As the years have passed and my passion for crafts has expanded into many other forms. I have finally decided on a new name for my blog. Living in Calgary, Alberta is a wonderful experience and I am proud of where I live. So with that I have decided on YYC Crafts, the YYC is the code used for the airport here in Calgary and has become quite popular whenever someone is describing something to do with Calgary.

I have only changed the name of the blog so none of my posts have been lost. I have put in a request with facebook for my page name there to be changed as well. Will also be adjusting my twitter, instagram account too.

I'm very excited about the change and am looking forward to what the future may bring.

Easel Card

Hello Everyone!

Today I am sharing an easel card that I made quite a while ago now, I found the picture in my computer and wanted to share. This flower pot easel card cut file can be found over at My Scrap Chick.


Easel cards are fun to make and are great to give. Not only are they a card but something that can be put on display too.

Coral Sands Ruffle Scarf

Hello Everyone!

Another hobby that I like to do is knit. Now I'm not a fancy knitter or anything like that, I can knit and pearl and that is about it. The one thing I like about this particular yarn is that you look like a really fancy knitter when you are done knitting a scarf with it.

This one I call Coral Sands, it has a nice earthy tone to it. The length is great and it can be worn many ways.


I am hoping to start listing my scarves in my Etsy shop soon. I am just working on a few things there before I begin listing again.

Thank You Teachers!

Hello Everyone!

Today I am sharing a thank you gift I made for my daughter's teachers. I did make two of these the themes were the same just the frames were different colours.


I found these wooden frames from Michaels with the dividers in them already. I knew I soon as I saw them what I wanted to do with them. The ideas for a few of the squares I had in mind right away, like the chalkboard, the piece of chalk is actually paper rolled up and the edges round in to look like a piece of chalk. The tree was something I wanted to do right away too oh and the square with the girl and boy silhouette charms. As I started creating the other ideas just start coming. This was really fun to do. I actually found two more frames recently, I know what I want to do with them I just haven't found the time to start yet. I really love this idea, it's like mini scrapbook pages all in one for display.

Graduate Underwater

Hello Everyone!

I have been so excited to share this card with you!! I have been waiting to post this for a week and I absolutely just love this card!! I hope you do too :)


I had so much fun coming up with this. The girl I made it for loves Nemo, so I searched high and low for all things Nemo. I found some amazing paper at the Digital Paper Shop. I used the Graduate word shaped card from The Cutting Cafe and the graduation cap and ribbon are both from My Scrap Chick.
Oh and the underwater plants are some files from Treasure Box Designs. I made the bubbles using Ranger's glossy accents, heat embossed the fish with clear embossing powder, cut the plants out with vellum paper. It was a lot of work, but so much fun creating this!!

Congradulations!!

Hello Everyone!

The weather is so beautiful here. There have been many walks in the parks around our home and while walking we have seen a few taking their grad pictures. Such a great idea and everyone looks amazing!

Another graduation card that I made for a friend whose daughter was graduating nursing school.


Her favourite animal are penguins so I incorporated that when making her card. I love how this turned out!!

Congrats!

Hello Everyone!

In keeping with graduations, I am sharing another grad card that I made. I think this one is so cute!


The cut files for this card can be found over at My Scrap Chick. Paper piecing is fun to do, and I always like to ink up the pieces to add some definition and texture to it.
I'm in a bit of a rush today so that's it for me.
