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!

Life’s Small Moments with Newton’s Nook


Happy Monday, crafty friends! I’m back today with another card featuring those adorable Autumn Mice from Newton’s Nook. The weather outside, and the calendar page, are telling me that fall is quickly slipping away… but I just can’t resist these sweet critters. And like this little guy, I am definitely trying to savor life’s small moments these days. It’s my birthday week, and I have some fun adventures planned that I am really looking forward to. Not only that, Thanksgiving will soon be here, too, and that means my kids will come home for the holiday. So many happy moments to be thankful for!


I really love this Happy Haunting paper from Simple Stories, and tried to match my Copic coloring to these softer pastel colors. Then added in some bold black and crisp white to make the colors pop. Tim Holtz Stitched Squares dies were used to cut the window opening. And then I made a little hillside with Heffy Doodle Stitched Slopey Joes Border Dies.


I have one more fall project to share later this week, and then I know, I know…. it’s time to move on to the holidays! Hope you all have a wonderful day, and thanks so much for stopping by!

Extra Mice Fall Tags with Therm O Web & Newton’s Nook


Hi friends, hope your November is getting off to a great start! My favorite month of the year is now over, but November is definitely a close second in my book. I still get to enjoy my beloved pumpkins and fall things for a little while longer…. and of course there is Thanksgiving and my birthday to celebrate, too. Speaking of fall, I have a set of harvest tags to share with you today featuring the cutest pair of mice ever that I made recently for the Newton’s Nook collaboration on the Therm O Web blog.


These adorable images are from Newton’s Autumn Mice stamp and die set. They were stamped onto Therm O Web’s Luxury White cardstock and colored with Copics. The glittery polka dots were made with a stencil and one of the limited edition Glitz Glitter Gels. Unfortunately this color is now sold out, and I seriously hope they bring it back.


I used a bunch of our GinaK Designs die sets to create the tags. The sentiment label and tag toppers are made from the Decorative Tag and Decorative Label sets, and I used both stitched circles and squares for the base of the tags. The patterned paper is this year’s Halloween collection from Simple Stories.


I do hope your fall is extra mice this year! Thanks so much for stopping by, and as always, you can find the full step-by-step tutorial for this project on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

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.

Pumpkin Friends with Therm O Web & Rabbit Hole Designs

#pumpkineverything… that pretty much sums me up to a T! I just absolutely adore every little thing about pumpkins, and they are by far one of my top favorite reasons for loving the fall season. So of course I could not resist this adorable Pumpkin Friends stamp set by Rabbit Hole Designs, and snatched it up for our recent match-up on the Therm O Web blog.


Who doesn’t like a little sparkle for the holidays, too? These fun glittery polka dots add such great texture and shine, and are so easy to make with just a simple stencil and some of Therm O Web’s Glitz Glitter Gels. I added lots of layers of crisp white cardstock, and backed the card with pretty patterned papers for a classic Halloween color combo. The pumpkins are colored with Copic markers and the frame die cut with some Therm O Web GinaK Designs dies.


If friends were pumpkins, y’all, I’d pick you!
