Sk8r Boi- Simply Betty Challenge #1

If you are here to see the latest StampInsanity challenge, for some reason, I can't get it to post above this one. I wrote the SI post days ago, and now it won't post on top! So, please scroll to the next post. Thanks!

I’m stoked! I LOVE Simply Betty stamps, and I am so excited that they finally have their own challenges!!! For this first challenge, it was a photo inspiration. Check it!

How rad are those socks?! Well, when I saw the picture, I instantly knew what I was going to do…because I already had the purrfect Christian colored in! I had done him up a couple of weeks ago. I was stumped on his skateboard, so I asked my niece her opinion (since she was watching me color anyway). She told me to make his board tie dyed. Weird. She is SO not the hippie type! But I went with it! And it came out pretty rad!

You’ll need to click on my pic to really see his skateboard. And check out the Basic Grey paper I had in my stash! The little strip under Christian’s feet? It’s perfect!

Sk8r-Boi-2

I used some random stickers for the “Sk8r Boi,” and some teeny puzzle pieces that Kathi gave me. Thanks, Kathi!!! I lurve ‘em!!! I was inspired by the leopard print on Betty’s socks, so I used the puzzle pieces as a (very) loose interpretation of the print.

Here’s a close up of my stickas!

The winner of this challenge gets a rubber Miller and London…which is SUCH an awesome prize! London rocks, but there’s something about Miller that just makes me smile! He’s groovy! So, I hope I win!!! But even if I don’t, I have a funky card I made! Have an inspiring day!!!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "

Changes

Greetings! I don't have a project to share with you today, but rather, an announcement. I have decided to completely revamp my blog, and move it to a new site. I've been blogging at 21st Century Pillow Book for over 10 years now, and it's been wonderful. But the "Pillow Book" aspect got lost somewhere along the way. If you don't know what that is, read my description in the blog header, or do a quick search. They are really very cool. Anyway, I thought it was due time for me to work on a new blog, more of a brand, etc. So, I invite you to now join me over at alisonheikkila.com . I've still got some polishing up to do, and a whole lot of learning, as WordPress is completely different from Blogger, but I am really excited for this new site. I've wanted to do this for a long time, and I am happy to finally be getting it done. Bear with me as I figure out the best way to make it all look and flow. I thankfully have some help with that. But I think you
