A Pillow Book is a diary of sorts. It doesn't just talk about the day's events, but contains lists, observations, conversations, musings, anything the writer feels like writing about really. 21st Century is because this is a modern pillow book, since it's done on a computer.
This is me. This is what my life is all about. I will let you into my head a bit... feel what I'm feeling, see what I'm creating, understand what I'm learning. Enjoy my journey right along with me!

DICC #34 with Jellypark
I have a Desert Islands Crafters Challenge to share with you today. This challenge is being sponsored by Jellypark, who sells very sweet, adorable little digis. Play along with us for a chance to win an image of your choice! This latest itinerary is from the brilliant mind of our very own Suzi. Here it is.
7 -friendship 8 -A happy sentiment 9 -Brads and eyelets 10 -Anything but a card
For my card, I used numbers 1, 5, 7, 8, and 9. My image is called "Follow Me." I chose it, not just because I really liked it, but also because the proceeds from the sale of this image will be donated to Little Havens Children's Hospice.
What a joyful little image, right?I really enjoyed coloring it. I need to print it out for my kids too, since they wanted to join in as soon as they saw it. And I love that the proceeds benefit children.
I used watercolor markers and Copics for this image. My translation for the "sunshine" in Suzi's itinerary is a little loose, but that's where creativity really shines, right? ;) I think that yellow paper I used looks just like sunshine. I stamped the sentiment with individual letters from Inkadinkado.
I do hope that you will join us for this DICC itinerary. Remember that you need to use at least 3 of the items listed. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
Hello! This week, the Stampendous Design Team will be sharing projects that fit the theme, "Dear Santa, I've Been Good!" I used the sweet Christmas Package stencil (which frankly, can be used for plenty of other occasions too!), and a scrap I had leftover from the Chevron Stencil. Check out the full tutorial below.
1. Tape Christmas Package stencil to Dare Devil cardstock. Tape off the bow so that you don't get paste on it. Paste the box with your Palette Knife and Glossy White Embossing Paste. Remove stencil to wash. While the paste is still wet, sprinkle Lime Micro Glitter from the Hal…
I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.
My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.
See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
