Embellished Hat: JoAnn Video Tutorial

I am excited to share with you today a project that I created for JoAnn Craft Stores with Spellbinders Paper Arts.  My daughter, Ashton, is wearing a little cap that I purchased at JoAnn and then I altered the  hat with fabric flowers that I cut from Spellbinders die templates.  The fun part is that all of these supplies are available right now at your local JoAnn Craft store!

Here is a link to the JoAnn Craft Store YouTube channel where I have a video tutorial on how I created this project:

Valentine for Prince Charming

Valentine's Day is just a few short months away and the JustRite Papercraft team is making sure we will be ready to send out those sweet & and perfectly adorable cards to our loved ones by designing beautiful stamps for us to order now.

I love the latest background stamp designed by JustRite because not only does it work for Valentine's Day but also for a Wedding, Anniversary or simply given because you love somebody.  That's good enough reason right? ;)

I stamped and embossed my heart image onto pink cardstock and then I die cut the design using Spellbinders Heart Circles die templates.  The beautiful little image of a Fairy & a Frog is from Graphic 45 Once Upon a Time paper collection.

The JustRite team have worked hard to bring you tons of inspiration using this stamp.  Here is your link list for the rest of the team's projects

I will be back tomorrow with another fun project to share. Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today.  Happy Crafting

Becca Feeken's December Kit 4

The very beautiful and talented Becca Feeken is back with her next kit filled to the brim with exquisite stamps and die templates.   

Included in Kit 4 are all the supplies needed to create projects designed by Becca herself.  For me the best part about her kits are the stamps and die templates included.  Even after each project has been lovingly completed you will have beautiful stamps and dies to continue the creativity for many more crafty days.

On my card I used the Spellbinders die templates and JustRite Papercraft stamps designed by Becca included in this kit.  

The JustRite team have come together to show you more ways to use the stamps and dies.  I love the versatility of this kit - value at it's finest :)

Thank you so much for stopping by this weekend.   Have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend surrounded by beautiful friends and family

JustRite's Wings of Love

JustRite Paper Craft is releasing two beautiful bird background stamps that are so versatile that they can be used for just about any occasion.  I used the very pretty and detailed Wings of Love Background Stamp for this glittery holiday card.

I started off by stamping and embossing the background stamp in white on blue cardstock.  I also stamped the postcard image and colored it with my Copic markers.  I love this color combination for the Holidays - so festive right.

The JustRite team have been busy creating beautiful samples to provide you with tons of inspiration for these stamp sets.  Each one is different but all equally beautiful.  Here is your link list to the fun

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you are inspired to start creating with these beautiful stamps!  I will be back tomorrow with a masculine b/day card for the big boy in your life!
