Post 1: For the next 6 posts I’ll be sharing a little book project. I was at the craft store quite awhile back and I don’t know about you but sometimes I purchase something because I love it and then it takes awhile to figure out what I’m going to do. Well such was the case with this little house book. I pulled it out a number of times but nothing came to me.

And then poof. I applied gesso to the entire page and started building my background with layers. I always have scraps of this and that and so I decided to use a few. The letters were cut with a die and the faint white doilies were rub-ons. Once everything was completely dry I added a little bit of pen work with a black marker. Home makes me very happy.

Lynne Jardine Penguin Fun

Here’s a sweet Christmas card from Lynne. She said she couldn’t decide which of the penguins she wanted to use, so she used them all! Adorable!!!

Here’s what else Lynne wrote:
The two in the corner look like they’ve got cold feet, the dude in the middle is having a blast sliding down the hill, and the guy to the right definitely looks like the Health and Safety Officer LOL
Coloured with watercolour pencils, and clear gloss added to their beaks and feet.  I finished my card with a Simon Says Stamp Christmas die, Paper Smooches snowflake die, a little silver star and some clear bling.

Kim Klinkovsky Chicks Picnic

Here’s a totally fun card sent in by Kim. Don’t you just love the red and yellow combination!

Here’s what Kim wrote: Hello friends! The red and yellow plaid pattern papers remind me of summer picnics with family and friends. And this chicken wire embossing folder makes the perfect background, with a touch of country using this wagon wheel type border punch. These adorable chicks remind me of me and my friends sitting around catching up on life. I used a mix of watered down gelatos to paint the chicks, watercolor crayons to create the grass and the sky, and cut them out using a stitched frame die cut and border cut. Then I added some festive ribbon, buttons, and a tag to finish it up.

Lynne Jardine Sadie Goose


Here’s a sweet little card of Thanks made by Lynne. I just love the simplicity – just little Sadie goose stamped and cut out and a simple “thanks”. I love the background stencil and Lynne’s addition of a few sparkly sequins. Oh so sweet.

Paula Downs Happy Spring

Here’s another great springy card from Great Customer Paula Downs. This one is a flip card and if you’ve never seen one before you can see Stephanie Barnard demonstrate one on YouTube here.

Here’s what Paula did:
I began with my base card which I die cut from a Sizzix Diamond Flip It card by Stephanie Barnard from yellow dotty card. I then stamped Peeps 3 times in a pyramid style fashion in a light grey Versafine ink onto patterned fresh green dotty paper. I only wanted a guide to see where to apply my yellow acrylic paint which is opaque (and would cover up the green dotty pattern below Peeps).

I then over stamped Peeps back over the dry acrylic paint in a black Stazon permanent ink, to add the detail back in. I finished off with a sentiment by Lawn Fawn, and some daisies I punched out.
Thanks again Paula!

Lynne Jardine - March calendar

Wouldn’t you just love to look at this cute little calendar page all month long! Lynne made this and it’s just so cheery and spring-y.  She said, “Ok, so in my head there’s a dancing competition going on in the woods, and the prize is a great big Easter egg!” I wonder who’s going to win!

Lynne said she colored everything in with watercolors and added clear gloss to the Easter egg. I just love the background sky with the little pops of color. I think watercolors are all the rage right now – I know I’ve pulled mine out and am having a little fun. I thought it was so clever to stamp the month in the cloud. Love it Lynne!!

Monica Poo Mr Who Ornaments

I found a post I’d written but I must have not hit the actual “publish” button because oh my goodness I don’t see it anywhere! Monica Poo was on my design team a little bit ago and made these for a Christmas card challenge she was in. Aren’t they just the sweetest! And what a great idea to make a Christmas card that you can actually use as an ornament. I love the little plaid background and the red wreath. Having Mr. Who sit on the little sentiment banner was a wonderful idea. Thanks so very much Monica.

Donna West - Cuppla Love

Donna sent this in and said “This little card I created not just for the DT but I’m currently in a craft group that meets once a week to craft, it’s called The Crafty Hens!! Isn’t this just the perfect card for one of the “hens” in my group? I can’t wait to give it to someone on their next birthday!! I colored with my Copic Markers. The little chicken wire background is a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The burlap flowers I cut out from the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die. EEEEEK!!! I just love these hens!!!”

How perfect is this card for her little group. I love the way she colored the hens, giving their feather distinction. The background dirt they are sitting on is pretty darn amazing too – all with her Copics. I think she found the perfect embossing folder – the chicken wire background. Topping things off with little bits of red gingham makes the card just grand.

Diane Kaufman Mr Who treat bag

Who needs a gift when you receive a bag like this?! Diane really outdid herself with this project. It features Mr. Who, a little owl in hot pink. She choose a large scalloped center to build on – adding all of details, the tree branch and those wonderful flowers. I love the addition of burlap – it creates a wonderful texture. She secured it to the bag, including some little teal ties at the top.

Here’s a closeup picture of all that great detail.

monica poo who loves you

This adorable little “whooo loves you” card was sent in by Monica Poo. She has an incredible ability of taking something relatively simple and small and making it into something HUGE on sweetness. She used Mr. Who on some Japanese paper that was actually meant for watercolors. But, she used her Copics instead. She was pleasantly surprised when they didn’t bleed on the paper. She then added tiny polka dots in the background, three paper hearts and some crystals and it’s just grand! Thank you so much Monica!
