Fall Blessings with Newton’s Nook


Here we go, friends! The last fall project of the season… once again, featuring those adorable Autumn Mice from Newton’s Nook. This time, paired with the fall Mad4Plaid collection by Photo Play Paper.


Tim Holtz Stitched Circle dies and Heffy Doodle Stitched Slopey Joes Border dies were used to cut the focal frame, which was popped onto the card base with foam adhesive for a bit of dimension. Then a simple twine die and a die cut ephemera sentiment finish the design.

I’m going to hate to say goodbye to these cute autumn mice. But fortunately, I have the holiday mice, too! Thanks so much for stopping by, and wishing you all many fall blessings!

Thank-Fall Tag Set with Ranger Ink


Happy Wednesday, crafty friends! It’s another frigid day here in the Carolina’s, but I refuse to give up on Fall just yet. So today I am back with another fall-inspired project. A set of thanksgiving gift tags that I made this week for the Ranger Ink Projects Page featuring their beautiful new Speckle Embossing Powders.


I love all the different textures and colors that are in these powders that give such a variegated finish. It’s the closest thing to the look of real enameling that I’ve yet to see. There are even large chunks that really look like stained glass when melted. So amazing what can be done these days with powders.


I love creating tags, and am always looking for different takes on the basic gift tag. For these tags I used two of my favorite and most-used Tim Holtz die sets to create the tag base… Stitched Rectangles and Stacked Tags. Fall Foliage die cuts, double-embossed in Speckle powders were used for the leaves. Vintage lace trim was added to the bottoms, and a mixture of Big Chat stickers and Alphanumeric dies make up the sentiments. Thought some Metallic Kraft Stock cardstock would go nicely with the golden tones of the embossing powders.


I think these would be so pretty used for fall birthdays and goody bags, don’t you? If you’re interesting in learning more, I’ve got the full step-by-step tutorial up on the Ranger Ink Projects Page blog. Thanks so much for stopping by! I am so very grate-fall and thank-fall for all of YOU!

An Extra Mice Fall with Newton’s Nook


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!

Mr Snowman Gift Card Holder with Sizzix


Hello crafty friends! It’s the day before Halloween and my house is still filled with pumpkins and spooks, but as is often the case in the craft world, it’s time to move on to the next season. So today I’m super excited to be doing something I haven’t done in quite some time…. sharing a project on the Sizzix blog. This time, it’s the Sizzix UK blog The Making Journal and my project share is this sweet Mr. Snowman gift card holder tag.


The focus of my project was featuring Tim Holtz dies from the latest Sizzix Chapter 4 release, and I used two of my favorite new sets on this tag today. This is the adorable Mr. Snowman die from the new Colorize line, and the background was made with the Alpine set which makes incredible scenery for so many different designs. The tag and all the pieces were die cut from a combo of Distress watercolor cardstock and Distress Kraft Stock cardstock, and I went in with Distress Oxides and Inks to add color and definition to all the layers and pieces. Dyed trim was added to the top of the tag, and I made a quick and easy sentiment banner with simple twine and die cut Alphanumeric Label letters.


I call this a 2-fer project, because it really is two projects rolled into one. Not only is this adorable snowman tag a great packaging gift tag or decorative art tag, it also does double duty as a gift card holder. I love time saving ideas like this when the busy holiday season comes around.
If you’d like to learn more about the process, or check out the full step-by-step tutorial, be sure to pop on over to the Sizzix UK blog The Making Journal.

Boooooo Happy Halloween with Ranger Ink


We’re coming down to the wire, friends! Halloween is just days away. But last minute as it is, I’m back with one last Halloween project for the season. This time, a pair of haunted gift tags that I made for the Ranger Ink blog.


I just love these two silly ghosts, don’t you? They are from the Frightful Things die set from the Tim Holtz Sizzix Chapter 3 release, one of my favorite sets from this year’s holiday release. I paired the ghosts with spiderwebs from the same set, and popped them all against crisp black tags for contrast. The negative spaces were filled in with letters from the Alphanumeric Labels die set, inked in soft lilac Distress for a classic Halloween color combo.


These will be so cute tying up some Halloween goody bags for those special spooks. Happy Halloween, everyone!

And as always, I’ve got the full step-by-step tutorial for this project up on the Ranger Ink project page, if you’d like to learn more!

Under Your Spell with Therm O Web & Rabbit Hole Designs


Hello crafty friends, happy weekend! I’m back today to share a second card that I made for our recent Rabbit Hole Designs match up on the Therm O Web blog. You all know how much I love Halloween, and with it less than a week away now, I’m trying to squeeze in as many pumpkins as I can. This time, I’m using an adorable Halloween set called Gourd-geous.


Pumpkin witches? Yes, please! They definitely have me under their spell. These cute pumpkins were colored with Copic markers and then die cut with their coordinating die set. The spider and sentiment are from the same set, too. Once again I used Sweet Mango Glitz Glitter Gel to add some holiday sparkle to the back of the frame.


The frame was made from Therm O Web’s Black Onyx cardstock and a rectangle die from the GinaK Designs collection. The die cut out the inner window opening, and I trimmed the outside edges to size, leaving enough room on two sides to add a decorative scalloped border. The scallops are from Tim Holtz’s Stitched Ovals die set and come in two sizes. I used both for a bit of interest here.

I’ve got the complete step-by-step tutorial up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Life Moments with Ranger Ink


Hello, crafty friends, and happy Wednesday to you all! Hope your week is going well and that your fall (or spring, depending upon where you are) is off to a great start. I’m always super excited at this time of year, because of course autumn is my favorite season. I love it when the air turns cooler and the leaves start to change color, and pumpkins and apples start popping up everywhere. So I’m extra happy to be sharing a new fall project with you all today that I made for the Ranger Ink blog.


This card is a fun mix of some newer products, like Ranger Distress Archival Inks and the awesome Crackle texture folder from Tim Holtz and Sizzix, combined with lots of pretty Distress Ink colors and favorite stamps. I went with a warm autumnal color palette of golden yellows and rich deep orange and rust on this fall-inspired design, and used my Distress inks to do some easy watercolor washes and splatters. Quick techniques that give a unique appearance every time.


The texture on that 3D Crackle embossing folder is just amazing. The embossing looks great on either side, too. I pulled out my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher to adhere the layers of background papers, and sandwiched a nest of loose threads in between. A simple stamped sentiment finishes the design.


I’ve got the full step-by-step tutorial up on the Ranger Ink Projects Page, if you’d like to learn more.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you an awesome weekend ahead!
