DICC Sponsored by Bombshell and New Dilly Beans!

Hello there! I have 2 projects to share with you today. The first is for the newest Desert Islands Crafters Challenge, and the second, since it's Friday is for the latest Dilly Beans challenge. Let's start with DICC Here's the itinerary:
1. Use Indian Corn colors of Rust, Gold, Deep Red, and Tan
2. Thank You or Thankful theme
3. Dry or Heat Embossing
4. 3 Layers
5. Metal
6. Die Cuts
7. Charms
8. Photo Corners
9. Ribbons 
10. Lace

We are sponsored by the fabulous Bombshell Stamps this time around, and most of the team is using the Indian Princess set. This set also happens to be the Muse Monday set of the month, so you can snag it on sale! I used #'s 1, 2, 3, and 9.

I embossed the Large Feather with clear ink directly on the tag, then I inked over it using a few different chalk inks. The Dreamcatcher was stamped separately and cut out. I colored it with pencils and more of the chalk ink. The "Thank You" is from Bombshell's Banner Sayings set, and I embossed that and inked it as well.

Sorry for the glare on this pic. Now...on to Dilly Beans! This week's challenge is Anything But a Card. 

This is a pretty simplistic layout for me...I usually do more "stuff" to my pages. But, I think it's cute. We had visited my bestie Kelli over the Summer. And the woman is so damn thoughtful....she had a whole drawer of crafts for my kids to do! Well, they were of course thrilled, and immediately started to make things. These photos were taken the morning after we arrived. As soon as they woke up in the morning, they started making Christmas Crafts. 

I colored this sweet snowman couple with my alcohol markers. 

I would love for you to join me and my fellow DT'ers on both blogs! Check out the DICC Blog, the Dilly Beans Blog, AND the Bombshell Blog for lots more fantastic projects. Thanks for stopping by. 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
