i-Crafter January Release


If you haven't heard yet there's a new company in town and it's called i-Crafter. If you have heard than you know the excitement surrounding all the great new products!
Click this link to see my first blog post that explains more about the company and you can see some of the first projects I made.
I'm a-Maze-d By You

Today is my second post for i-Crafter  and I have 2 more cards and 1 tag to share with you.

The products I used for today's projects are the Heart Maze dies, the Amaze Me stamp set and the Zip Gift Tag dies.

Zip Gift Tag Dies
Amaze Me Stamp Set
Heart Maze Dies
The first project was made using the Zip Gift Tag dies


I just love this set of dies because it allows you to make a gift tag with a zipper in it that hides a gift card. To dress up these gift tags there are 3 sentiment dies and 6 images to change up the theme. For my tag I chose the flower die and the thanks sentiment. The nice thing about this die set is that the tag can be used by itself to create a plain tag for any occasion.

The next 2 cards were made using the Heart Maze dies and the Amaze Me stamp set.





I just love using the Heart Maze dies, they are so much fun!
The possibilities are endless and I just love the little lock and key die included in the set.

I hope you've enjoyed my projects today. Make sure you check back on February 1st to see all the inspiration the DT will share using the February release.

Have a great day, I already am!

No Calorie Valentine πŸ’˜


Good morning crafty peeps!
This morning I have a Valentine's Day project up on the Kat Scrappiness blog that has no calories! Kat Scrappiness has all the supplies to create this sweet treat pocket and best of all..... it's calorie free!

I have to give credit to my daughter Taylor, it was her idea to make it calorie free! After my treat pocket was assembled I told her that I needed to buy a candy bar to slip in as a prop for the picture. That's when she reminded me that Kat has a cute stamp set with a chocolate bar in it. It was an AHA moment and so the no calorie Valentine idea was born!

Card Recipe

1) I started with a piece of kraft card stock
measuring approximately 8.5" x 4.25" and scored it on the 8.5" side down the middle. That left me with a square pocket.
2) I embossed the whole piece of paper with a burlap embossing folder and then I used a scalloped edge punch to give the top front edge a fancy finish. 
3) Next I took the Floral Heart Die and die cut it out of the front of the pocket. I then adhered a pink piece of card stock behind the front panel and glued the Floral Heart Die  back in the space where it had been cut from.
4) Next I put double sided tape on the two outer edges to form a pocket.
5) I cut the Sweet Word and Sentiment die from silver foil and adhered it to the bottom right of the pocket.
6) The sweet little xoxo sentiment from the  Say it With Hearts stamp set was the perfect size to stamp on to the smallest Stitched Flags die. I punched a tiny hole in the flag and tied it on to some pink twine for the top of the pocket. I added some Pretty Pink Jewels around the heart as well!
7) The last step was to stamp out 3 no calorie chocolate bars to stick inside my pocket. The Layered Chocolate Bar stamp set was the perfect set for this! I just love how realistic the wrapper looks with silver embossing powder!



 And there you have it folks! A no calorie Valentine with all of the SWEET and none of those pesky calories!

Thanks so much for joining me today and I hope you'll check out these great products from Kat and make yourself a little treat (calories or no calories)

Don't forget to follow Kat Scrappiness on all
social media platforms to be alerted to new releases, sales and giveaways!



Have a great day, I already am!

Celebrate With Cake



Good morning Rabbit Hole fans, I hope your day is off to a great start! Today I have a shiny birthday card to share with you featuring the elegant birthday cake from the Celebrate With Cake stamp set.




Card Recipe

1) I started off with a white card stock panel and I painted some loose pink watercolor stripes horizontally across the background.

2) I stamped the cake image and heart bows in Versamark embossing ink and then sprinkled both with silver embossing powder. I did the same thing with the "Celebrate" sentiment and then heated them both up until they were dry and shiny.

3) I matted the stamped panel on to a sheet of silver foil card stock and then both panels on to a pink card base.

4) To complete my card and add some extra bling I added pink sparkling jewels around my card.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!

I Drink Coffee For Your Protection


Good morning Coffee Loving Crafty Peeps!
I just spent the most amazing weekend in Phoenix, Arizona for Creativation!
I had the privilege of meeting a lot of crafty friends in person and 3 of those people were Coffee Loving Cardmaker Designers that you all know and love! It was so nice meeting 
and

It was a nice long weekend full of all things crafty with some of the sweetest people you'll ever meet!
I am up on The Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today and I have a humorous card with a fun coffee bean background.

I die cut a piece of white cardstock using the largest die from the Kat Scrappiness Distressed Edge Rectangle Nesting Dies and then sponged some light brown ink over a Gina Marie Coffee Bean Stencil. The sentiment on that adorable coffee cup is from CAS-ual Fridays Hot Coffee stamp set and the cup is cut from their Coffee Cup Fri-Dies. I also thought it would be fun to add some laughing emojis to the card so I broke out an older set of Spellbinder dies that I had and created a few fun faces!



This card sums up my Creativation experience so well! There was a lot of laughs and a lot of vanilla lattes! I hope this card gave you a chuckle as well!

Thank you so much for joining me today.
Have a great day, I already am!

I'm a-MAZE-d by You!



Good morning, today I'd like to share with you a few more projects I made using 
some of the brand new products from i-Crafter!
It's been an exciting weekend at Creativation and I'm headed home today inspired by everything I've seen! i-Crafter made their big debut at Creativation and aside from their awesome stamps and dies, they are coming out with some great inks and tools as well!

One of the dies that I am particularly smitten with is the Heart Maze Dies.



With Valentine's Day right around the corner you'll just love creating all sorts of cards with these dies! Aside from the adorable maze die there is a cute lock and key die as well. I created a shaker card with the maze die and I filled it with fun seed beads so they would roll around easily inside the maze.  




Make sure you check out the i-Crafter website for a lot more inspirational stamps and dies! You can also check out the stamp set that goes along with the Heart Maze Dies, it's called Amaze Me and it features a neat little maze stamp and 2 fun sentiments.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a crafty day!
Have a great day, I already am!

❤️ Kat Scrappiness Valentine's Release ❤️ Day 3


Image result for valentine's day images"



Hello everyone and welcome back to
 day 3 of the new Valentine's Day release over at Kat Scrappiness!

Today the DT will be featuring Shaker Kits!
We all have different shaker kits to share with you and they are so much fun!
Did you always want to make a shaker kit but were intimidated? Now you don't have to be!
Kat Scrappiness shaker kits make it SO SUPER EASY to assemble all the parts of the shaker element!

Today I am sharing 2 cards using 2 different shaker kits:




Here is the card I made using the Jar of Hearts Shaker Card Kit


The word "kisses" on the top of the card was cut down from the Snowflake Kisses Brush Script die.





Here is the card I made using the Large Heart Shaker Card Kit




I used quite a few other Kat Scrappiness products to make this card:

4 mm Blue Heart Droplets

This card was so much fun to make because I love picking out the mix that will fill my shakers! I'm not a great cook but sometimes with shaker cards you feel like you adding in all the ingredients for a great recipe! It makes you feel so creative!

If you'd like to watch a video on how to use these fun shaker card kits you can head over to YouTube and watch Jo from the design team assemble a card using the Intertwined Hearts Shaker Kit.
You can watch Jo assemble the kit and apply those instructions to all of the other kits. The assembly part is basically the same for all of them.




I just love designing shaker cards with these kits and I know you will too!
Thank you so much for joining us for the reveal of all the new 
Valentine's Day dies and sprinkles!



Clearance Craft

Kat Scrappiness also has a great CLEARANCE section on her website!
You can pick up some crafty goodness at clearance prices!
Woohoo win win!

Introducing i-Crafter




This is a very exciting day and I've been waiting a while to share this awesome news!
I'd like to introduce you to a brand new company that I will be designing for called i-Crafter!
You may have heard of the very crafty and creative designer Lynda Kanase and if you
haven't then let me introduce her to you!
This new company is called i-Crafter and it is Lynda's baby.
Lynda has created some fun stamps and dies that are both
interactive and innovative and you are going to LOVE playing with them!
You can find Lynda over on her blog by clicking on this link:

I'd like to share with you some of Lynda's thoughts and philosophies on 
this brand new company in her own words.


i-Crafter is a fresh new company, truly inspired by crafters, for crafters.
What we believe:
We believe that CREATIVITY lives in all of us
That creativity is the IMAGINATION made visible
That LEARNING new things can and should be fun
That creativity flourishes when we take time to EXPERIMENT and make mistakes
That MAKING things with our hands is good for the soul
That CURIOSITY makes life infinitely more interesting

i-Crafter is a company backed by years of experience in the crafting industry.
Built from the ground up with a lot of blood, sweat and tears {of joy}
by people who truly like working with each other.

Let's make something together. -Lynda Kanase


Now that we have the introductions out of the way let's get to the FUN STUFF!
Lynda's new company is being revealed at Creativation 2020 this weekend!
She will be showcasing her awesome products and introducing her new
company to the crafty world!
If you happen to be there this weekend make sure you stop by
Booth 2357 and say hello!
I am extremely honored to be part of Lynda's talented design team
and today you can hop around to our blogs to see some of the fun
projects we've been making in preparation for the January release!

Today I am sharing some projects using the new products
being released this month.
There are 4 dies and 1 stamp set being released this month:


My first card features the interactive Heart Hands Wiper Dies



These hands actually come together to form a heart when you open up the card!
This die set also comes with the word "Love", which you see on the front of
the card,  as well
as the slotted heart you see on the front and inside of the card.
The possibilities are endless as to what you can put in between those 
cute hands when they open up!

My next card features the Heart Maze Dies


I am just in love with this die! It actually cuts out a maze in the shape of a heart!
It's adorable and the heart with the keyhole and the key come with the 
set as well! I did not have the matching Amaze Me stamp set when I made this card
so I printed out a sentiment from my computer that matched the theme.
There is however a stamp set that goes with these dies that has some
adorable sentiments like "You AMAZE me" and "I'm LOST without you".
Also included in the stamp set is a stamped image of a square maze.

After I received the stamp set I made this card that features 
one of the sentiments and the square maze.




The next die set being released this month is called the Zip Gift Tag Dies



This cool die makes a gift tag that has a zipper element to reveal a gift card
inside of your tag. It's a surprise until the recipient "unzips" the pull tab to 
reveal the surprise on the inside. On this tag you can see the "Birthday Cake"
and "For You" cut outs that are included with this die set. 
There are several other dies included to allow you to personalize your
tags like flowers, a star and a heart.

The last project I have for you today features the Making Faces Die Set





This die set comes with multiple different male and female faces that you can customize.
There is also an extra die that you can use to cut out glasses, bowties and even a
goatee! You can literally make any different combination of hair color or skin
color or accessories for men or women.
I chose to give my couple some red and blue hair and I also used the base
of the Zip Gift Tag Dies as the background for this tag.
If you notice I used the "Love" die from the Heart Hands Wiper die 
on this tag and I die cut it a second time so I would have the letter "u".
It's actually the "v" from the "Love" word but I think it doubles 
pretty well as the letter "u" in this case.


I would love to share some more projects with you but I think
I'll save a few for later in the month.

I hope you're hopping along with the design team for 
all the inspiration and fun!
You should have hopped here from Jessica F's blog and your next
