Froyo Fixes Everything

A post on a Saturday? Sure why not? And what's even better? This post is just for me. No DT stuff, no challenges, just a little sumpin' sumpin' because I felt like it. Ahhhh....I needed that. Think I'll need to do it again soon. But first! Lemme show ya what I got!

I finally got my hands on some Sweet Stamp Shop stamps, and I lurve them! This little number above features some images from the new Froyo & Friends set. It's so stinkin' cute! A lot of their stamps were originally intended for planners, but I'm not a stamp-in-you-planner type of girl. Yet. I have a feeling that I will be soon. But back to my card.....

I colored the froyo with my Memento Markers by Imagine Crafts. I die cut around it with one of Stampendous' Fitted Frames, and then I inked the edges with Angel Pink Memento ink. I stamped the sentiments on to red cardstock with VersaMark ink, and then I used Detail White Embossing Powder for some texture and shine. I used a couple more Fitted Frames to cut them out.

I spritzed my pink background with Pink Lemonade Memories Mist and added some Stickles to random spots. A little textured purple cardstock, a little ribbon, Summer Sky ink on the card base, and voila! This little baby came together quick. And I can't wait to break out more of my new Sweet Stamps. I'll have a tutorial for Imagine Crafts in June that features some of their images, so please be sure to check back! And you can follow me on all types of social media by clicking the little buttons near the top on the right side of my post. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Day 1 of 31 Days: Come as You Aren't

Greetings! It's officially the most wonderful time of the year! Today is Day 1 of the 31 Days of Halloween. I have participated in every 31 Days (what are we at? Year 5?) and I am so excited to be doing it again. For my first project. I use a bunch of Stampendous' newest Halloween images.


I started off with the fantastic witch label from the Halloween Labels Cling and Die Set and colored it with Zig Clean Color Markers. I then stamped the spiderweb and a spider from the Spider Fear set and embossed with with Star Dust embossing powder.

I created my card base out of Sweet Potato cardstock and stenciled the Swirls Stencil with Gray Flannel Memento ink. I didn't make it solid, rather I wanted the stenciled image to fade in and out of the background. Then I inked up the bottom edge of the card base with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed Marcastie Embossing Powder on top. The card needed a little something further, so I stamped a sentiment from the Spooky Wishes set on to ve…

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 "thank…

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'…
