Clearsnap + Fancy Pants

Hello! Excited to be hopping today with Clearsnap and Fancy Pants!

I created a journal using some fun papers and embellishments from the Everyday Circus line and chose Colorbox® Spritzers in coordinating colors to watercolor on the front cover. You can use the spray inks themselves or the reinkers from the archival dye ink line to mix with water. I love the archival line of products because they are dry the ink is set and permanent and can’t be disturbed by any more water.

Check the Clearsnap blog next week to see a video tutorial on this stenciled technique and how to create journal covers.

And how fun is this coptic binding technique to hold it all together?! I have been practicing to make it look nice (still not to that point) and can’t wait to make tons more ;)

Thanks for dropping in and be sure to visit the Fancy Pants blog next to find out more about the giveaway!



Make A Wish

Hello and happy Monday! This is my second post for the day, so if you are here looking for the Clearsnap + Fancy Pants blog hop, please scroll down. Alrighty, I have one more card to share today that was created as a  guest for the Waffle Flower Crafts bi-monthly challenge.

There are 2 challenges again this month, both the above sketch and the Build A Scene prompt. I used the sketch along with the Starry Night and Loved stamp sets to create a pretty birthday card. Peach, purple and gold = divine!!

Hope will join along with the challenges this month too! Find all the details on the WFC blog here. Thanks so much for having me Nina!!

And of course, have a wonderful week!


Get Happy


Hello! Drop by the Gossamer Blue blog today to check out some projects created with the new Get Happy line from Allison Pennington. Love this pretty holiday collection so much! I am dying over these awesome plaid alphas and the coordinating stamps!!

Happy, happy, joy, joy – Ren and Stimpy anyone?


And here is one more using some of the sweet embellies and that amazing deer mount.

The collection will be releasing sometime this month – so very soon!

Enjoy the weekend!
