Tombow and Video Tutorial



Hey there!  Today I have a post for Tombow's Sticky University.  They sent me some Xtreme adhesive, and I made a video to document the tape runner in action!!

Yes, the intro is super cheesy- sorry!  I tend to be a dork most of the time...

embossing folder

Many of you had emailed me asking about the embossing folder I used on yesterday's card.  It's called World Map from Darice.

Have a great weekend!

my favourite place

Oh man, I just love when I have the time/energy to make a card!  This one is for Virginia's clean and simple challenge.  You know I'm a clean and simple gal, so this one was right up my alley!





A while ago I stumbled upon a cool embossing folder- a map of the world.  I bought it, stashed it away, and then forgot about it until last night! Once my watercolor paper was all embossed, it was easy to just paint each of the continents.  I let my watercolor pool up and play around on the surface of the paper so that when it dried I'd have those cool water marks. I just love how that looks!

My sentiment is from Altenew- some folks have asked why we spelled "favourite" with a "u." Well, the rest of the stamp set includes the Sydney skyline, and that's how they spell it in Australia!   Other countries spell it that way too, and I hope they appreciate that they finally have a sentiment without the American spelling :)

edited to add:  After I posted this, I thought my card looked a bit familiar. Then I remembered Miriam's awesome card here.  I didn't CASE her intentionally, but I guess it just kind of happened!  Hope you don't mind, Miriam!

Good morning! Today there is a lovely new Runway Inspired Challenge image for you to get crafty with!



I love the colors, the explosion of random "stuff" on the fabric behind the model, and the cool designs on her outfit.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Waffle Flower, and I used the Santa beard die from the Santa Add-On die set to make a border along the left side of my card.  



The sentiment is from the Bowtiful stamp set.

Please go visit the DT...you will be blown away when you see what they all created!

World Card Making Day!

 I hope everyone had a lovely World Card Making Day yesterday, whether you had time to create or not.

I was lucky enough to have the WHOLE day free, and I spent it at Jingle's!  Vanessa Middleton was there too, and it was nice to get to meet her!

Jennifer had some goodies set up for us...


And of course there was some good food and drink....

We had a blast!
Vanessa, Jennifer, and me

I am probably the absolutely slowest crafter when I get together with others, because I can't seem to talk and create at the same time.  So imagine how shocked I was to complete 4 cards! Wow! :)



This card uses my favorite set from Altenew, Sketchy Cities America, along with a die cut from Lawn Fawn.





This pair of cards uses Altenew's Geometric Menagerie and Sentiments and Quotes sets.  I love the glitter cardstock in the background!


For my last card, I can only share a sneak peek- you'll be seeing the full thing on my blog in a few days! :)

Hey there  :)

Today's card is for the new Runway Inspired Challenge.  This time, we are using a shoe!  LOVE them (I actually just recently bought a pair of cork shoes, but they didn't have a cool diamond pattern like these!)


I knew I had some old cork sheets lying around somewhere, so I dug them up and made this sweet card:





Please visit my fellow Runway girlies to see their lovely creations!
