Exciting News and New Cards

Hello, Friends! I know I’ve been missing in action for a couple months but now I am back and I have some FABULOUS news to share with you!

I have been invited to join the Creative Design Team for


I am so excited because as part of my design team duties I will be video blogging with new product reveals, tutorials and sharing my creative inspiration.

I am also part of the Craftology Design Team and I’ll be focusing on card making with the monthly Craftology Box. October Box is gone but you can order November and there are several kit options from which to choose. 

Tammy Merrill is one of the most gracious store owners I’ve ever had the pleasure to design for and she has so many paper collections, embellishments, tools and galore in the store. She is herself a talented and inspiring crafter sharing her creations through her tutorials and live streams on Facebook and YouTube.

The October Craftology Box includes the entire collection of 12 x 12 designer papers from Echo Park’s “A Perfect Autumn” by Lori Whitlock. I love Lori’s work and this one is exceptionally adorable with the cute critters and fun artistry in the papers. The Craftology Box has some fabulous elements that accompany this collection. There are designer brads, paper bows, canvas ribbon, the 12 x 12 Sticker sheet, a couple adorable gold and chocolate colored glitter jingle bells and fall leaf/acorn/pumpkin sequins. The add-ons include the Ephemera frames & tags as well as the die cut cardstock pieces, Layered Stickers, Dies, chipboard pieces, Enamel words & Phrases and the 6 x 6 paper pad. And there's even Bobunny Copper and Chocolate glitter paste in the mix.

My first card is a whimsical romantic card using a cut-a-part from the 12 x 12 papers and fussy cut art and ribbon to create dimension and texture. A short tutorial for this card is HERE.

My second card is a Fall Blessings card with a clean and simple style using the autumn sequins as a wreath for the focal point. The YouTube tutorial for this one is HERE.

The third card is distressed and grungy with some handmade flowers that have been distressed with inks and sprays for a mixed media flare. I also added the pretty fall bells to this one.

My fourth card is what I would call a traditional scrapbook card. It has die cuts of pumpkins with the various designer papers and some burlap for texture that screams autumn.

The fifth card is a Tri-shutter card design that creates interactive movement and showcases some of the gorgeous designer papers.

I hope you enjoy the YouTube tutorials and reviews. Please subscribe to my channel. I look forward to sharing my new crafty projects. I have mini albums and 3D creations in the works. 

Until next time, enjoy and I hope your creativity never ends. Thanks for popping in to visit and have a great day…
