Anything Goes with ADfD

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2016! I hope you are going to have a craft-tastic year...that's what I'll be aiming for. I have an adorable new image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. It's from the January Club kit, and it's called Penguin Party.

I did very minimal coloring on this card....only a little bit on the penguins. The focus just hadto be on their ginormous balloons!

I used 4 colors of wonderful Stampendous glitter. I started off by using Zip Dry glue by Beacon adhesives on my first balloon. Then I sprinkled Gold Halo Mix glitter on to it, and shook off the excess. I repeated this step 3 times with Burgundy, Mahogany, and Copper glitter. The Zip Dry dries quickly, so I finished the card pretty quickly after all of my glitter was applied.

I had some fun copper metallic cardstock that I used for my background, and I put 2 Stampendous sentiment stamps together to create my "Happy New Year." I added some fabric tape in a fun check pattern, and I inked the edges of my white card base. Ooh! And I used a fun EK Success border punch too. All in all, this was a really quick card to put together. Please be sure to visit the rest of the ADfD team over at the blog. Thanks for stopping by. Have a Happy New Year!

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
