This months challenge is using the Yuletide paper pack. If you came from Linda's Blog then you're in the right place, this is a go around blog hop so you can start anywhere! Just in case, the full list will be at the bottom.


I made this gift box using the Yuletide Paper Pack and Complements.

I like you. True Story. Adorable Card with Video Tutorial

Hi Crafters,
I have this adorable card to show you today. It is a Clean and Simple Card which means it is literally one layer all on the card base. I love this stamp mainly because it is not only adorable but also a tad corny and it just fit my style. Plus I am an avid book reader and I can see using this stamp set many times over. 


There are so many scenes that you can create with this stamp set and I am very excited to say this is not my last post about this set! 
Here is the Video Tutorial:

Baby's 1st Birthday Card

Hi Crafters,
Today I am bringing another card using the Celebrating his 1st Birthday Stamp set  from JLO stamps since I am a Guest Designer there and loving every minute of these adorable owls! This stamp set is adorable and also has a little baby Brentwood in a high chair to play with as well. I'm still debating about stamping him on the inside of the card or not. 





I started off with a black card base and lined it with some Canary Paper Fundamentals Paper (it is a pack of 20 sheets of cardstock in CTMH colours but has some sort of shine or pattern to it as you can see the chevron shine on parts of the card). I then took a piece of Designer Paper from the Brushed Paper Pack. I then took some Juniper cardstock from the Brushed Paper pack and stamped the cupcake as a border using Juniper ink and topped it off with a Flourish. I ended up using the Happy Birthday Stamp from the Brentwood set but I cut it so I could make Happy with Birthday underneath rather than straight across. The 1st I got from a different stamp in the same set. I used a black marker to create the stitching. I stamped Brentwood in Memento Black and coloured him using a variety of Copics.

Winter Card for the Jessicallynnoriginal Design Team

Good morning crafters!
I am bringing you another Design Team card today featuring this winter themed stamp from Jessicalynnoriginal.com - it is currently unavailable but should be available soon. How adorable is this little owl!?! I decided to use some different colours and go with a grey owl this time. This was really easy to make and came together nicely with the snow haven paper pack. Supplies listed at the bottom of this post.




This is a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 top folding card. I cut the base out of Glacier cardstock (all cardstock comes with the paper pack). I added a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 Ruby cardstock followed by some  3 3/4 x 5 patterned BT paper. I added a strip of red patterned paper measuring 4 1/4 x 1. I stamped the owl in Memento Ink and coloured her with Copics C1, N0, N2, N4, B24, B21, B34, G09, R29, R35. I made a foggy background using C1 by dragging and lifting my marker across the background. I added some pearls and coloured them with my Copic R35 marker.





I'm on the Design Team!

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Hero Arts and Kraft Cardstock

Hi Crafters,
Today I am participating in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge featuring Hero Arts products and Kraft Cardstock. You do not need to use Hero Arts for this challenge to participate so be sure to get on there - there is a $50 gift certificate at the Simon Says Stamp Store up for grabs!

I also entered this card into the Christmas Card Challenge since this week is anything goes - I also applied to be on the Design Team so keep your fingers crossed!


This was a very easy card to make using up some scraps from my stash and I love that very subtle background on the kraft cardstock. I just find Kraft Cardstock perfect for Christmas Cards! To get the white splotches, I dipped a dry paintbrush into Tim Holtz White Picket Fence Distress Paint and flicked it onto the background.

Here are the supplies used that are not retired (anything from the Close to my Heart store is Canada only all other product are internationally available).
