 Hello, Crafty Peeps!

I am sharing a quick card I made using a cute little winter stamp set I found on Amazon. 

Northern Lights!
I stamped two sentiments and a tree to show the convenience of using a stamping platform.  Then I realized I could probably create a winter scene with a couple of my critters.  What do you think of my Northern Lights?
This cute set is really budget-friendly, and they have other equally affordable collections.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Warm Winter Wishes - BLEDS VIOLET BLOOM

 Hello, Crafty Makers!

I was recently introduced to a new paper company, BLEDS!  

They sell on Amazon and they were looking for Amazon associates who might be interested in trying their papers.  Well, of course, I signed up!

This particular collection was beautifully coordinated.  All of the papers work so well together.  My most difficult decision was deciding which combo to use on my paper piecing project.
My Word of The Year is Aliyah, which, in Hebrew means Return!
My crafting goal this year is to return to stamps, tools, and techniques that were past favorites! I own all of the Prima Dolls that once all the rage and I decided to start my crafty "return" by paper piecing one of my favorite dolls!

This collection is a nice mix of florals and geometrics. The geometric patterns are perfect for creating masculine projects. My grandson asked for a gift card from his favorite gamer store, so I created a Gift card holder using three of the geometrics. One piece was a scrap from my paper piecing project!

My final project was a Journal Card for my January Planner setup!  I should have chosen a different foil, but my goal was just to see how well the paper would accept the ink and the foil.  The card is actually very pretty IRL!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello, Crafty Makers!
I am delighted to share another card created using Cardi-o Stamps!   I absolutely love these silhouette stamps.  Each collection includes a number of awesome stamps that can be used to create gorgeous scenes.  I have been having so much fun!
Do You Hear What I Hear?
Before I discovered Cardi-o Stamps and Laura Wenn's fabulous YouTube tutorials, I was very reluctant to try creating card scenes! My past attempts had ended in disaster, and I vowed to never try again. But then I found Laura's channel, and I changed my mind!
This card is one of my favorites!  The hubster pointed out that my church and trees should have been on the hill, and my large house should have been more in the foreground.  But he said, this was a great card and that I had shown tremendous growth in this area of my crafting!  He is my best critic and greatest fan!
I was even pleased with how I was able to add snow to the tree branches that frame the image.  These are things with which I struggled in the past.  I am a long way from being great at this, but each day it seems to get better!

A Place To Start - December 2022 - Happy Holidays

 Hello, Happy Creators!

Over at A Place to Start, we are closing out 2022 with a simple twist:

Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanza, New Year

The Frozen Bubble
I watched the tutorial for this project ten times before I was able to convince myself to give it the old college try!  I am so glad that I made the effort!
Here is the link to Laura Ween's tutorial!
Holiday Magic!
I created this second card by following another Laura Wenn tutorial.  I have absolutely fallen in love with Cardi-io stamps and Laura's videos are so informative and easy to follow!

As usual, I failed miserably in attempting to photograph the glitter.  I have all these new lights, etc., and still, I struggle.:D)

Thanks for coming by, and Happy Holidays!
