Happy Monday friends! Anyone else feel like Jan is flying by? I just blinked and Christmas was over. Makes me sad cause Christmas is my most favourite time of the year.  But. I’ll tell  you what makes me extra special happy…. my Brother P-Touch Cube label maker! Giggle Giggle! It seriously makes me smile each and every time I use it! Adding journaling, sentiments or titles to your project has seriously NEVER been easier when you have the Brother P-Touch Cube (PT-P300BTAD). This little dude is a GAME CHANGER!One of the things I love about the P-Touch Cube is that the ribbon comes in different width. So you can create labels that are thin or you can create labels that are thicker… all by changing out the ribbon cartridge. You can also change the colour of the ribbon, colour of the font, length of the ribbon, the font and so…

Okay – the holidays are IN THE AIR…don’t panic….BUT …. for me getting ready for all the excitement is really most of the fun!!!! I LOVE the anticipation. This year I made more Christmas cards then I ever have in my life!  Usually I make one and then replicate it. This year the magic of all the Christmas products especially the Christmas themed stamps had me shopping a TON! Here is a little card I made last night. This card features  Kawaii Cuties, The Holidays Are Here, stamp set by Stamp Anniething. AND the coordinating dies – cause who wants to fussy cut when there are adorable little cuties to color?Am I right?!? I created the background with this fabulous star  stencil also by  Stamp Anniething I blended Simon Hurley Create ink to create the background. Added some Tonic Studios Glitter Nuvo Drops, cause I add those to EVERYTHING! And…

How stinkin’ cute is the Mugs and Kisses stamp set by Pink & Main? AND of course it also comes with coordinating dies for EASY PEASY cutting! From happy Santa to floating marshmallows and a cinnamon stir stick! Pink & Main really thought of everything with this adorable little set! Here is a card a created with the penguin mug and candy cane stir stick. SUPER DUPER cute! I also used the Pink & Main Winter Wonderland 6X6 paper pad for the patterned paper. I coloured the stamped images with my FAVOURITE Tonic Studios Nuvo watercolor pencils. But seriously, this collection had me at marshmallows! Happy Happy making Christmas cards my friends HO! HO! HO!

To say that I am addicted to my Brother P-Touch Cube (PT-P300BTAD) is a little of an under statement. This little machine is a game changer for me. FAST, EASY, TONS of OPTIONS and the added bonus of printing on ribbon – I am in scrappy heaven. WOWZERS! From printing custom sentiments, in different fonts, in different colours on different backgrounds for cards – to adding journaling strips to my layouts and planner pages… and then of course labelling just about EVERYTHING!  Seriously – you need to add this little gadget to your MUST HAVE TOOLS! Here are a few examples of a FEW of the different varieties of drop-in cartridges that are EFFORTLESS to use! Here is a little example of a card I designed using the P-Touch Cube to create the sentiment on this mystical greeting card. Take a minute or two and watch as I put this…

If you are like me and find watching embossing powder change to liquid as it heats up oddly satisfying, this is the technique for you! To create this card first cut out a base from Ranger Simon Hurley Create Stark White Cardstock. I used an Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Rectangle die.  On a second piece of white cardstock, emboss the brick wall using a Tim Holtz Embossing Folder. Once embossed cut out the brickwall using a slightly small stitched rectangle die from the same  Elizabeth Craft Designs die set.  Adhere the brick wall in the center of the larger stitched rectangle using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Squares. Set aside. Next, on a piece of white cardstock, lay a Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz stencil down. Apply Ranger Simon Hurley Create ink with a Mini Blending Tool. Lift up the stencil and gently spread the ink filling in the white spots.…

Using watercolor pencils and a waterbrush is the absolute easiest way to color detailed stamped images. Adding shading and highlights using this technique has never been easier! I like to use a fine tip waterbrush pen and I dip it in water rather than filling it up with water.  So really you could use a fine tip paintbrush instead! Here is the card I created. I am SERIOUSLY in love with this stamp set from Heartfelt Creations. Cottages are super trendy right now in the crafting world and this is one of my favourite designs. To create this card… Using the Heartfelt Creations Countryside Cottage stamp, stamp onto a piece of watercolor paper. I used Ranger Archival ink so that the ink doesn’t run when I add water. Stamp the image using a stamping platform.  Do not remove the stamp from the platform as you will re-stamp the image once…

What do you get when you mix Art Impressions Rubber Stamps with Simple Stories?!?!? A charming little card that makes you feel like spring! To create the card I cut a card front from a piece of pink striped patterned paper from the Simple Stories Bunnies & Bloom collection. I cut the same size card front from Ranger Simon Hurley Create Stark White cardstock. Using a Sizzix Framelits circle die, I cut out a circle window in the upper portion of both the card fronts – in the exact same spot. Using Glue Dots Adhesives Gluetape I adhered the two-card fronts together. This process made the pink stripe paper stronger so I could pop it up later. Next, cut out a piece of Prima Marketing white watercolor paper. Pop it into your Tonic Studios  Tim Holtz Stamping Platform. Securing it into place. Stamp the Art Impressions floral stamp onto the…

First off, I bought this stamp set from Stampers Anonymous awhile ago and just haven’t had the chance to play with it.  I finally pulled it out the other night and started to design with it.  I had a smile on my face the entire time. How adorable are those little guys? Am I right or what?! LOLOL! Great job Tim Holtz! I ended up creating a number of little tags that I love! Here are the basic steps to create the tags 1. Using a Scrapbook.com Nesting Tag die and reinforcement circle, cut out a tag from a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock. 2. Place your tag in your stamp positioner along with the little bunny stamp. 3. Using a post-it note, cover up the sentiment on the bottom of the stamp so it doesn’t stamp on the tag. 4. Ink the stamp with Ranger Archival ink and…

Okay, I am seriously obsessed with the Simple Stories – Simple Cards Card Kits! They are ABSOLUTELY gorgeous and come with EVERYTHING you need to create 8 show-stopping cards! I created this card using the Simple Stories Hello Lovely Card Kit. So here is the story. As a scrapbooker, I can not send bought cards to my friends. I just can’t do it.  I feel like I am cheating on my supplies LOLOLOLOLOL.  And there are just times when I don’t have a card ready to go – these kits are soooooooooooooooooooooo the answer!  Beautiful designs, no scissors necessary, and of course you can add your special touches if you like. All you need is adhesives. And for this card, I used Glue Dots Adhesives Pop-Up! Dots and Permanent Gluetape. Did I mention that with the kit you can make 8 different cards? You sure can!  In 2-3 minutes, I…

Creating cards with background dies is my latest obsession. Speaking of OBSESSION – Impression Obsession has a variety of MUST HAVE background dies that are absolutely perfect for jazzing up your cards or being the star of the show! Here is the latest card I put together. First I cut out several of the Sunburst Background die from Impression Obsession using black cardstock. I adhered three of them together and let the third one peek slightly from behind so that it is blacker around the sun circle. I pulled out my Picket Fence Studios Life Changing Blender Brushes – these are a serious blending game changer.  I used them to blend THREE of my favourite colours of Ranger Tim Holtz Distress ink onto a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock. These three colours look like a beautiful sunset! Using Art Glitter glue with a fine metal tip I adhered the…
