Lil' Inker Designs August Release - Day 2

Hello and welcome back for Lil' Inker Designs August release!   Hopefully you arrived here from my friend Erin Lee Schreiner's blog, otherwise head to Laura's blog to start the hop from the beginning! 

For my first project, I made some adorable little lunch box notes.  I used the Ghost Border Die set to create a ghost on some cute envelopes that I found at my LSS.  Then, on the inside I added more of the matching Stitched Ghosts and an adorable sentiment to a insert cut the with Stitched Rectangles. 
 Then, I added a ghost to the back too!  So fun and I know my kids will love them!
Lastly, I love a great Halloween tag so I used the Classic Halloween stamps to create this tag.  I simply stamped the sentiment on a die cut rectangle from the Stitched Rectangles set and then added a pinked border from the Pinked Sentiment flags set. 






It's now time for you to head to Jen Carter's blog but I've got the entire hop list for you below.  Make sure to leave comments too because Laura will be giving away something special away on her blog too! (details on Laura's blog)!

Now to the logistics….

Here's the entire hop list:

This month, it's all about Imagine Crafts - Tsukineko!

Yep! Neon pigment inks and the colors are GORGEOUS!   I really wanted to focus on the colors... You can find all the inks available HERE.


I used a new Winnie & Walter set - The Big, The Bold & the Happy - that I finally got my hands on to stamp my sentiment.  I love how neon pops with black & white!

Lil Inker Designs August Release: Day 1


Hello and welcome back for Lil' Inker Designs August release!   Hopefully you arrived here from my friend Erin Lee Schreiner's blog, otherwise head to Laura's blog to start the hop from the beginning! 


I love these adorable Stitched Ghosts so much!  They are just too sweet and I love that you can get stamps to work with them too!  The Spooky die is just too much fun. 


Next I used the ghosts again (but this time I didn't stamp them) and paired them with a black and white card.

An Avery Elle post - a little late

Ok, I apologize!  Work has gotten chaotic to say the least.  I'm barely holding things together between work and my crafty commitments these days - so getting stuff up on the ol' blog hasn't been happening lately.  :( Sadly.  

Catching up... 

I used the new Avery Elle Simply Said Happy stamps and dies and the balloons stamps and dies to create this card.  Gosh I love these sets.  I'll be back with more as I try to get caught up!  Thank you for your patience!

Lil' Inker Designs & Timeless Twine

Hello and time for some fun.  
We all know I am a huge (no, I mean HUGE) fan of bakers twine.  So, when there was mention of a Lil Inker Designs and Timeless Twine blog hop you can bet I jumped at the chance. 
Is this Strawberry Cupcake color combination not just incredible?!?!
I could use this much of it! :)

I also love black & white twine.  It always works! 

But for my card, I used grey & white bakers twine
to create this card...


I stamped a sentiment from Seriously Awesome onto a Pinking Edge Sentiment Flag die cut shape. 

Now for the fun part!  There is a $25 Lil' Inker Designs gift certificate up for grabs during this week's posts!  Make sure you visit the Lil' Inker Designs blog HERE for all the details!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a terrific day!

A fond farewell!!! Sniffle!

I've been avoiding my blog for days because I didn't want to face this post.  

Today it becomes official.  The sweet and amazingly talented Betsy Veldman has decided to step down from her position as a Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine Go-to Gal.  

Yep.  You can read the official announcement on the Paper Crafts Connection blog here

I feel so incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to meet and work next to Betsy.  Betsy is kind, sweet, well spoken, genuine, humble and out-of-this-world talented.  Did I mention the girl is funny, too?  Yep.  She is funny! 

Betsy taught me a lot about paper crafting.  I might just admit, while she probably has no clue, a long time ago she introduced me to Berry Sorbet.  Sigh.  Perfect color.  We might have even fought over a Berry Sorbet ink pad last Ed Board.  

Betsy, I adore you and I wish you all the best in your future endeavors.  I'm not going to lie, I'm going to miss you but I completely support you in your decision and I am so happy for what I know the future holds for you.  

Betsy, this card is for you.  I'll pop it in the mail soon, I promise. 

I poured my heart into this card and tried to incorporate a few things I've learned from Betsy over the years - from using patterned paper for layers to die cut borders.

Now be sure to head to the other Go-to Gals blogs because we're all saying a fond farewell to our dear Betsy.
