Handmade Travelers Notebook Gardening Journal with Video! Watch Now!

 Hello friends! I'm popping in today to share a project I made Live on the Scrap Shotz Facebook Page last week. I shared how to make a travelers notebook with the We R Memory Keepers Book Binding Tool and NEW Wild Whisper Designs Supplies! I decided to use this journal to document the plants and flowers we planted this summer, and add in any nature we see that makes us happy, flowers on a walk, trees with fall leaves... I can't wait to fill it up with beautiful things! Here's a look at what I have done so far.

Here's a look at the video with exact dimensions to use if you want to create one of these yourself!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I'd love to hear if you use travelers notebooks!! You can find the one I created as a book journal HERE!

Jolly Character Christmas Card!

Hello crafty friends! I'm back today with a sweet Christmas card using the adorable Jolly Characters and Comfort and Joy Paper from Close To My Heart! Over the past couple months I've been doing a fun collab with one of my friends Jennifer Smith and sharing some creative projects using some of the awesome supplies in her Shop!! I'd love for you to check her out - you can find her online at her BlogWebsiteFacebook page and Instagram! I couldn't wait to colour up these super sweet mini characters to add to this cute Christmas card. I used my Cricut Maker to cut out a scallop edged rectangle and a frame with 9 circles cut to fit these cute images using the Comfort and Joy Paper.

I even used the Maker to draw a circle frame with one of the gold Cricut pens. After colouring in the Jolly Characters images - and they colour up quick! - I popped up the frame with foam tape. I even cut a coordinating bow and then added some Nuvo glitter drops for shine! This set is going to be perfect for a December album, journaling, calendars, tags and mini cards too!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out Jennifer and all the fun things in the CTMH Shop! I hope you have an amazing week friends!

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps November New Release Hop & Shop!

Woohoo!!! Today we are celebrating all the new fabulous holiday goodies in our November Release that are NOW available in the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop! All three of our new stamp sets, plus two new stencils, a new hybrid ink colour SOFT SAGE and new DREAMY DOTS were released yesterday and we're excited to share it ALL with you in a fabulous krafty HOP! So let's check everything out as we hop around the Krafty Design Team's blogs today!  Grab a nice hot beverage, sit back and relax while we take you on the krafty tour! Today I'm using a little bit of everything from our new release to create a gift card holder and bookmark set! I decided to start off with the adorable images from SAVE MY PLACE. This bookworm is seriously cute!! I added some googly eyes to his little glasses for even more fun! 

I used my gelli plate and the gorgeous New SOFT SAGE ink refill and STUDY BUDDY Stencil to create a fun background for the gift card holder diecut. Some pretty P13 paper was just right for paper piecing the awesome book stamp and I stamped a sentiment from the set. I created a bookmark from more gelli plate paper and stamped on the adorable reading chameleon and some images from the New PLANNER DOODLES Stamp Set. If you look closely, you'll even see a tiny stack of books I stamped on shrink plastic hanging from the ribbon!!

On the back of the bookmark I had to use one of the amazing New HANDMADE SENTIMENTS stamps, and I added some of the awesome DREAMY DROPS on the holder for the finishing touch! This is going to be wonderful to give with a gift card to a favourite bookstore!

The entire release of stamp sets this month was designed by artist,
Melissa Baker-Nguyen!
The first is called SAVE MY PLACE!

and the second is HANDMADE SENTIMENTS!

The last stamp set is PLANNER DOODLES!

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps November Sneak Peeks Day 3 - Planner Doodles Plus a Challenge!

 Today is our final day of Krafty Peeks for the November Release at Kraftin' Kimmie StampsToday we are absolutely thrilled to be introducing PLANNER DOODLES!

This stamp set has been designed specifically for your planners, calendars, datebooks, journals, pocket pages and lots more!  And who doesn't want to be a bit more organized in 2021??!

I love getting organized each month and making my calendar look pretty at the same time, so this set is perfect in combination with Kraftin' Kimmie Inks, including the awesome New SOFT SAGE

I love all the planner sentiments as well as all the awesome images that can be used in many different ways! The stars, arrows, dots and more are great to decorate your pages and even cards and tags. This is a family calendar that hangs in our kitchen, and my kiddos always love it when I get the calendar all decorated! Plus seeing at a glance daily things we need to do or reminders is awesome!

I used the New STUDY BUDDY Stencil with Precious Pink Ink and stamped the super cute images from the New SAVE MY PLACE Stamp Set. I actually stamped on sticker paper and coloured with my copics to avoid the marker from bleeding through. 

I swear, even garbage day is fun now!! I love the speech bubble, ovals and squares that are perfect to jot in little reminders!

I used the New SPLISH SPLASH Stencil with our New SOFT SAGE Ink to add fun painty splats and then used some stickers from my stash, including some of my favs from The Aesthetics Studio on Instagram. I'm so happy with how my calendar looks this month and I can't wait to start on December!!

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps November Sneak Peeks Day 2 - Handmade Sentiments!

 Welcome back to Day TWO of our November Krafty PeeksAre you excited about what you've seen so far!?  Are you ready for more? I hope your answer was yes because we've got more fabulous fun for you today!

The stamp set we are 'peeking' for you today is from artist 
Melissa Baker-Nguyen and it's called.....


This adorable set features lots of fabulous designs for the backs of your cards, for stamping on envelopes and tags, for gifts and lots more!  SO many options and this one is a must-have in your krafty collection! Check out HANDMADE SENTIMENTS in so many gorgeous creations today as you hop around the Krafty Team's blogs! You'll also see the new stencils, hybrid ink and krafty dots along the way! I couldn't wait to make a whole set of gift tags with this new stamp set!! I've also been playing around with my gelli plate and decided to try out the reinkers on it... and I love how they turned out! I paired the new SOFT SAGE reinker with various other colours of Kraftin' Kimmie Ink reinkers and got messy (but not too messy, ha ha) with the fabulous New SPLISH SPLASH stencil. There are lots of fun things you can do with the reinkers, and this is one of my favourites!!

I used my Cricut to cut a splat and heat embossed various sentiments from the HANDMADE SENTIMENTS set. I even used the dotted lines to create several faux stitching elements! You might recognize all the fun craft supplies I colour coordinated to each tag from the Let's Get Krafty Stamp Set!!

I added some ribbon, hemp twine, stickers and our New DREAMY DOTS to each tag and handstitched a button on. 

Of course I'm going to be using the HANDMADE SENTIMENTS set on the backs of all my cards, but I definitely wanted to use them on these tags as well! I'm sure this is going to make a handmade gift even more special!

A coordinating ribbon through the top and my bookmarks are done! My 13 year old has already claimed one - she is never without a book handy!
