Pocket Card with a Winter Wonderland Theme

I just LOVE the way this winter wonderland pocket card came out! This was a design team project for The Crafter’s Cafe so the image was provided to me free. It’s the Winter Wonderland Bestie from My Besties, and is available HERE. I knew that I wanted to do something different with the digital image […]

I’m Doing December Daily!

I’ve decided to do a December Daily scrapbook/journal this year! I’ve posted a video about it and some of why I’m doing it, and what I’m doing to prep. If you don’t want to watch a video though, I’ll just tell you! Why- 1. Because times change, and this year will be greatly different than […]

Gnometastic Key Clip

Hello all!! Today’s design team project is pretty simple even though it isn’t a traditional card or any papercraft at all, so I didn’t do a video of it. It’s a bit too self-explanatory to spend time doing a video, but this week I have a fun gnome craft for you! So, let’s get to […]

Yet again I encountered an issue (no fault of the design team!) but while it’s a completely different project than I had planned I absolutely adore the finished item. You can hear more about my original card plan, the changes I made, and why in this video. […]

Simple Chibi Card

I’m not entirely sure why joining a design team and starting at my absolutely busiest time of the year seemed like a good idea, but that’s where I’m at. Back to school and end of the school year are when I am just swamped! A deadline is a deadline though, so I met my deadline. […]

Summer Days Mini Book & Album

When I saw these sneakers as a Digi stamp from All Dressed Up I KNEW I HAD to have them. Anyone who knows me personally will know I pretty much live in sneakers like this. Well, really I pretty much live barefoot, but IF I have any shoes on, they’re shoes like this. I was […]

Geometric Flowers- FREE Cross Stitch Pattern

I designed this free cross stitch pattern some time ago with the intention of having it in the first magazine issue. Ever since I admitted to myself I didn’t have time for the magazine I’ve really been just reformulating, making things for the sheer joy of it, deciding where to go from here and where […]

Fun Magazine Flip-Through Videos

Several weeks ago on my Facebook page, I shared that Interweave had a magazine subscription sale. (It’s over now, but certain magazines were $15 a year.) I thought it would be fun if I took the three I subscribed to (Spin Off, Piecework, and Cloth Paper Scissors) and did a magazine flip through video. Just […]

A Flipbook Flip Through

I recently decided to spend a lazy Sunday working on some paper crafts. I have only recently been getting back into it and acquiring all the papers and bit and bobs required, so I really felt like “Could I pull of something nice? With what I have??” Of course to be playing around is the […]

Super Simple Crochet Cat Balls

This pattern is almost to easy to bother writing, but I want to share it anyway. If you are a more experienced crocheter you can no doubt make these without a pattern, but you may still be interested in my stuffing. Our Kismet is still quite playful and I often will whip up a quick […]
