I love how it’s three dimensional and her use of traditional red and green. Oh and that big red bow – wow!

Who wouldn’t want to keep track of their chores with this darling little chore chart Pam’s created. She laid out the days of the week along the top and the “Chores to do” down the left. There’s room in the boxes for a gold star – yeah! And if you click on the picture you’ll get a detail of the orange framed part of the picture.

I’m seriously contemplating…would I be more likely to do my grown up chores if I had a chore chart and a box of gold star stickers? Hmmm…

Long before Twitter and Tweeting there were the original Tweeters..birds.  Pam’s created a project showcasing a new home specially made for Crackers and Keebler. She started out with an A2 shaped card (4 ¼ ” x 5 ½ ”) and went from there. The basic shapes are pretty simple…the house, a circle, the roof – which looks like a humongous photo corner. I think her orange accent throughout (the birds, the saying and even the embroidery floss) really add a great little pop of color.

Home tweet home!

Here’s Pam’s Tombow marker coloring chart:

Pam’s created another great card! This one features Arthur Alooishus and a “cool dude” sentiment – great card for a little boy. She stamped Arthur bear and then stamped his shirt again on another piece of paper, colored and cut it out. A great layered effect. I think the black and white ribbon and sentiment on the little tag are wonderful details – that little something extra. :)

It’s a snowball fight! Pam’s sent in another wonderful card and Tombow coloring chart. I think the bright cheery colors really stand out against the winter white background. And using Stickles for some snow sparkle really adds a great detail.

Now watch out ’cause Cora’s ready to throw another snowball!

Do you remember looking up at the stars when you were a kid and wishing? Or maybe it’s even something you do now. When I originally drew Mia, teddy, Sweet Pea and James looking up I thought of so many things they could be looking at – stars, cloud shapes, birds…

I think Pam did a lovely job and has once again made wonderful use of her Tombow markers – such an eye for shading!


To make the twinkling stars in the night sky – she used the blade of her cutting knife to scrape off the watercoloring to reveal the plain watercolor paper underneath. That is a nice, neat way to show the light paper when you need to. What a great technique! But she also says, just be careful not to press so hard that you rip your paper and scene!

This card is so serene and lovely. Pam’s really outdone herself with her coloring technique.

She started this scene (this is actually just one stamp) by stamping the image and then coloring the water below the image.

Then she stamped the same image using a regular black ink (not StazOn) onto a clear acetate sheet. She immediately turned it over, ink side down, onto the water right below the main image – so that it looked like the shadow of the shoreline reflecting n the water.

After completely coloring the entire scene – she used Liquid Applique to put snow on the mountain top. But before she heated it up to puff it, sprinkled loose glitter on the wet Liquid Applique – so that it sparkles when it puffed up.

Here is her Tombow marker coloring chart:

Pam said this wasn’t one of her usual card themes but I don’t think she could resist! I agree with her sentiment – some days you’re the fire hydrant but sometimes you get to be the dog! Woof! I love use use of the black borders to give importance to each piece. And the little black bow, I’m sure Mr. Peedles would love – hopefully not to chew on though. :)
