Hello with Butterflies Handmade Card

Here’s another card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge with the theme “Use More than One Die or Punch”.

This card is made up of various die cut elements and the only thing that’s not a die cut is the watercolor background and vellum strip. I contemplated adding more gold on the card but didn’t want an overly shimmery / bling type card so I kept it simple.


Traveler’s Notebook Process – Weekly Insert – 001

Surprise, surprise! I’m back with another traveler’s notebook process video and this time in my weekly insert. I have been thinking of uploading two to three videos per week because I’d like to cover other crafty things I enjoy too, namely cardmaking and scrapbooking.

Let me know what you think about more videos and what you’d like to see too.

Hope you enjoyed the video and thanks for watching!

Traveler’s Notebook Mixed Media Layout – Lego Batman

The husband and I watched Lego Batman around the time it was released in Malaysia and of course, I had to do a layout in my traveler’s notebook. The movie was awesome! It had so many funny jokes and pop culture references that my head couldn’t keep up after a while. But still a fun watch!

On a side note, my insert is getting really, really chunky and I haven’t reached the middle yet. It’s a little worrying. I’m prepared to remove the staples in the center spine if the need arises.

Anyhoo, have you watched Lego Batman and what did you think about the movie?

Hope you enjoyed the little process video and thanks for watching!

Traveler’s Notebook Flip Through and Updated Setup

It’s been absolutely ages since I last uploaded a video but I wanted to film my latest traveler’s notebook setup. I’m using it as a creative journal and am starting to enjoy it more. I never used it regularly before because I was trying to set it up as a planner but it didn’t work out for me.

As a journal though, I’m free to stick all sorts of things inside. Even doing mixed media when I feel like it.

I hope you enjoy the video of this flip through and do let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. Thanks so much for watching!

Winter Birthday Card

I wanted to use the deer head diecut from the Maggie Holmes Open Book set again and seeing that Simon Says Stamp has a new Wednesday Challenge called “Winter Birthday”, well antlers and snow seems to come to mind. Well, at least to my mind.

This is a relatively simple card with the birthday greeting stamped in Encore Ultimate Metallic Gold ink using Hero Arts Many Everyday Messages stamp set. The gold ink is rather subtle and doesn’t really show up on screen. I added a punched out glitter gold snowflake for that slightly more wintery element.
