Happy Thursday my friends! I am excited to share (one of my) newest obsessions: Julie Nutting Paper dolls! I picked up my first couple over at Scrapbook Centrale and from there…..well…..let’s not go there for the moment!

When I was a wee girl, my Mum would draw out paper-dolls for me and then we would create different outfits for them. I still remember sitting at the kitchen table and coloring and cutting out the lovely dolls my Mum made :) So, I guess this re-kindled an old love of mine.

I created a couple of cards using some muted paper from my paper stash. A mix of older companies that somehow come together beautifully. Because these particular dolls are quite large, I paper cards to fit in standard business envelopes. I quite like the longer length.

I did a fair amount of fussy cutting but it was a relaxing process. I added extra layers here and there to create dimension and did a little bit of shading with my Copic markers.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of you evening. I have to run and pick up one of the boys from swimming class!

Stamp and Create

Happy Monday! Hope your week is off to a brilliant start :)

Here is my card for Stamp and Create this week.

I used an image from CC DesignsSwiss Pixie Elf Lucy.  I have had this in my to-stamp basket for a long, long time now. I was happy to get it inked up and onto a card. The background behind the image was created with the Copic ABS (airbrush system) using various copic inks and then I sprayed Mr. Huey’s White over on top to soften up the look :)

Here is this week’s news from  Stamp and Create!

We have some new CC Designs in stock.
Here are a few of the new designs...

Make it Crafty stamps have been restocked...


That is it for me! I have to run out to the elementary school’s curriculum night :)

Whiff of Joy Halloween Tags

Happy Friday! I am pretty relieved that the week-end is upon us. It has been a busy week and I need to rest! LOL! I do have another Mix ‘n Match video for you. I hope you saw and liked the one from yesterday!

If you have been following my blog for awhile, you probably have guessed that I love, love my Whiff of Joy products and I also love to create fun tags. These make great little items to tuck onto gifts or to just give to your kids as a little pick me up or to let them know that you love and appreciate them. You can never discount the enormity of these tiny gestures. The other day, I was absolutely floored to discover that my eldest actually has hung in his locker a little tag that I recently gave him. Tucked right at the back but where he sees it every time he opens his locker. That just warmed my heart :)

Here are my Halloween tags using a mish mash of products to create something unique and whimsical.

A get well card

Happy Thursday! With the kids back in school (meaning less noise, distraction) I was able to film a couple more videos :)

I have created a couple with the theme of mixing and matching products from different companies. It is a great way to create unique and personalized cards, tags, or gifts.

Here is the first one:

Dance in the Rain

Happy Friday my lovelies! I am happy that the week is coming to an end. The whole “back to school” has been pretty seamless so far. It is nice to see the kids happy to fall back into the groove!

I have a fun card to share with you today. I mixed a whole lot of products from different companies to create it.

September Challenge time :)

Happy Tuesday! I almost typed in Monday! I find whenever we have a long week-end, I am totally off-track for the rest of the week! The kids are all back at school and I miss them. It does however give me more time in my craft studio!

We are already in September which means it is time for a new Stamp and Create challenge.

The September Challenge is:

Circles or Dots

On random participant will win a $25 Gift Certificate to Stamp and Create

Here is my creation:

I created a small Project life insert using Leo Tilda from Magnolia. I really didn’t want her to have the tail that is on the original stamp so I carefully masked off the tail when I inked the stamp up. Then, I just added the missing lines with my Copic Black multi-liner pen. Easy-peasy!

I added some small die-cut hearts and the adhesive gemstones which count as my “dots” for the challenge!

Thanks for swinging by today.
