When Life Gets HARE-y...

Keep on rolling! Oh my goodness, how FUN is this?!  La-La Land Crafts came out with 2 new dies (in November's release) that are so versatile in creating your own critters!!  I used the Bear Builder and Deer Builder Dies to create a Roller Skating BUNNY !  The "keep on rolling" sentiment is from this month's Club Kit!   Most of this bunny came from the Bear Builder Die , and the hair & ears came from the Deer Builder set.  I also added some whiskers to this frazzled hare by pulling apart some baker's twine.  The wheels on the skates are actually the bear's eyes, and his eyes are actually the pom-pom on his hat (in the die sample).   I'll have to see what other critters I can make using these fun dies.   To get your hands on these cuties, follow the links below...

January's Club Kit from La-La Land Crafts is a 'Day at the Park'    I've created 2 cards to share for today's reveal and they are as different as NIGHT and DAY!  (literally)  In this post I'll share my night version, and you can see my day version HERE . These playful raccoons in this kit are fun.  I decided that since they are nocturnal critters, I would make this guy play in the park at night!  πŸ›΄πŸ¦πŸŒ³ And just about any scooter image BEGS to be turned into a slider, amiright?   With just a tilt of the card, he rolls across the park on his scooter! This card fits in a 5" x 7" envelope.  Here's a view from the top: ADDIT'L PRODUCTS: Summer is Here Layering Stencils Stitched Nested Circles Die Stitched Sun and Clouds Die Horizontal Pocket Die Starry Night Paper Pack COPICS : Coon: E40, 41, 43, R20 Black 100 Greens: YG03, 13, 17, G99 Yellow: Y11, 19 Greys: C1, 3, 5, 7 CLUB KIT INFORMATION: •  Roller Skating Marci Rubber Stamp Set •  Day at the Pa

Love is in the Air

It's Inspiration Friday @ La-La Land Crafts and the Design Team's theme for this week is 'Love is in the Air'!    I've recently learned that you can dry emboss with your stencils!  So I embossed my white background with the Hearts & Harlequin stencil , then added the white clouds popped up for a cute airy sky.  I did add some light grey shading to my clouds, although hard to see in this photo.   The panda is from the ' Love Notes ' digi stamp set and I thought he looked like he could be floating up on a cloud.  :)  I cut the string to the balloon out of the image and inserted some baker's twine.  I backed my embossed layer to some dsp from the 'Love You More ' paper pack, then adhered to a white card base.  The red in the photo is my envelope ☺ Tomorrow is the 15th which means it's CLUB KIT REVEAL DAY!  Are you excited to see what January's kit will be?  I'll give you a li'l hint.... I love the way you roll!  That's all I

Birthday Shadow Box Card

Happy Friday everyone!  I have some news that I'm super excited to share!!  In addition to joining the Club La-La Land Crafts design team (in November), I was recently asked to join their Team Friday Design Team as well!!  How FUN is that?!  I honestly am still trying to pick my jaw up off the floor.  Seriously, their design team is so talented and their products top-of-the-line, I feel very humbled and honored to have been invited to join this amazing team.☺   SO... my first project for 2022 La-La Land Crafts   Team Friday is a card I made (a couple of weeks ago, actually) for my husband's birthday, which is on Christmas day!  So I made this Shadow Box Card with traditional Christmas colors, and I just HAD to include this truck as he's a mechanic and hunter, so his pick-up is one of his treasures.... although his is not nearly this cute!! LOL  ;)   Shadow Boxes are fun to make, and can be made the diy style by measuring and cutting BUT... I do have to say that this Shad

Club LLLC Dec - Double Slider Tutorial

Welcome back!  It's my 2nd post for today featuring December's Club La-La Land Crafts kit !   If you missed my  Shaker Card from my earlier post today, you can see it HERE . This Double Slider Card is easier to make than it looks and it gives that surprise factor for your recipient without the need to explain to them how it works!   (Keep scrolling for tutorial) When you pull the strings or tab on right side, BOTH side panels are revealed at the same time!  How cool is that?!!  These Pixies are so cute with Fairy Marci .   Here's a li'l closer up look at the left side.  I added Wink of Stella to the pixies' wings to make them sparkle!  I also created a tree using the Stitched Hills die and I turned the Grassy Island upside down to resemble the foliage of the tree. ... and a close up look at the right side In addition to the December Club Kit,  I also used these LLLC products: Scalloped Rectangles Die    Stitched Nested Circles Die   Sparkle & Shine paper Sti

My Last 2 Before Christmas

My inspiration for my projects today came from the 24 Days of Christmas Tutorials from the LLLC design team!  There are SO MANY that I want to make, but most will have to wait - maybe for Valentines or birthdays coming up.  You can see them all on the blog HERE or in their FB fan group HERE . These Shaker Gift Boxes are deeper than they look in these photos - really nice size!  They are from Day 21 hosted by Sheri . The Shaker Tree Ornaments are from Day 13, hosted by Tamara .   I altered mine by adding a backing and die-cutting it with the Stitched Slots Die and inserted a gift card!  LA-LA LAND CRAFTS PRODUCTS USED:  •  Holiday Smiles clear stamp     Starry Night paper pack    • Bear Hugs clear stamp set   • Snowflake Ornaments Die   • Double Stitched Hills Border Die   • Double Stitched Dome Die   • Scalloped Dome Die   • Double Stitched Squares Die   •  Stitched Slots Die   MY FAVORITE THINGS PRODUCTS USED  (on red box): • It's Penguining to Look alot Like Christmas stamp &a

Slimline Shaker Easel Card

Hello!  It's the crazy time of year and I don't know what we were thinking when we decided to get married 4 days before Christmas... 25 years ago!  My hubby's birthday is actually on Christmas day as well, so we've got alot to celebrate this time of year!   I created this slimline shaker card for my hubby.  I must say, it turned out much softer than I had planned.  I was going to go red, white and green , (we had a Christmas wedding with white-flocked and lit trees, red velvet dresses for the bridesmaids... and my hubby's favorite color is green!).... BUT, I say #craftlife happened!  LOL!  Wanted to use my favorite paper packs from La-La Land but didn't have enough left of the "right" patterns I wanted to use, so ... it kinda took a turn into this blue and pink feminine card, but ya know what, he liked it and appreciated all the time I put into it, so that's what matters :)   I used the cute  Fuzzy Hugs   clear stamp set   from  La-La Land Crafts

JOY Nativity Cards

Hello crafting friends, and a big welcome to my newest blog followers!  I hope you'll pop in and comment to let me know you're here 😁  Today I have several variations of cards using the same die called " Joy Nativity " - Cottage Cutz from The Scrapping Cottage .  (I will put all the product links at the end of this post).  You know I love my cutesy Christmas cards that I make throughout the year, but I always like to have some that reflect the true reason of the season - Christ's birth.  These were super quick to make... (except for the pop up box card) as I let the dies and papers literally do ALL the work!   For this first one, I created a popped up frame with the red paper, after die-cutting it - it almost gives it a shadowbox look.  I also cut the JOY nativity die out of the gold star paper and then popped up the JOY so that the sections behind the holy family and star would be solid and easier to see. I really LOVE the look of the red, white and gold!  I wa
