Hello gnomies, happy Sunday to you! It’s Creativation weekend! Such an exciting time for paper crafters with all the new products heading our way. I had the great pleasure of getting my hands on some of the new Photo Play Paper releases to create card samples for the show, and I can’t wait to share these new collections that are as cute as can be. First up today is Tulla & Norbert.
Gnomes have been super trendy these past few months, and that is continuing into the new year with this sweet spring-inspired collection. Love the colors in this one! Piled on lots of patterned papers for this card, adding in crisp white cardstock to help define all those layers. The rainbow background is one of the Cut-Apart cards, trimmed down to size. Then sticker and die cut ephemera details to finish the design.
Have you all been following along with the Creativation excitement? Any new immediate must-have favorites for you?

Happy Monday, sweet friends! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! It has turned very cold here these past few days, and it’s starting to feel like winter is coming early. Waking up to frost on the ground every morning and temperatures down into the 20’s. Having to bundle into winter coats and mittens and hats to go out in the evening. Brrrr, I’m so not ready for that. Think I’m going to cling on to autumn just as long as I can. Including here with my card share for today.
This is once again the adorable Autumn Mice stamp set from Newton’s Nook that I shared in my last post. But instead of tags, today I have a card made with the beautiful fall collection from Photo Play Paper, Mad4Plaid Fall.
Papers are from the 6×6 paper pad. The images were colored with Copic markers and die cut with the coordinating dies. I used a Sizzix Stacked Postage die to add some decorative edging to the background panel. And then a few pop dots for dimension on this super sweet and super simple design.
I hope your fall is extra mice this year! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi everyone, happy October! My favorite month of the year is here, and along with it, I have some happy news to share. A few weeks ago I received a surprise email from my crafty friend, Becky Fleck Moore, asking if I’d be interested in joining the CardMaps design team…….and being the huge fan that I am of Becky’s awesome sketches (and of Becky herself), I absolutely jumped at the chance. The last CardMaps sketches of 2019 have just been revealed, and with them, I am very excited to share my first team card with you here today.
And since Becky is not only the creator of the CardMaps and PageMaps sketches, but is also the art director for Photo Play Paper, I thought it was only fitting to dedicate my first project to her with my take on the sketch, featuring her adorable new Mad 4 Plaid Fall collection.
I am such a sucker for plaid, and am always a sucker for cute critters. My little puppy, Finley Boo, reminds me of an arctic fox, so of course I couldn’t resist this sweetie. That gives me the idea that I need to color this guy all white next time!
Be sure to check out all the new card making and scrapbooking sketches available today on the PageMaps website. Thanks so much for stopping by! I wish you all a super spooktacular October!
