Winter Wonderland Blog Hop

Hello! It's time for a White Rose Crafts Blog Hop. This month, we are celebrating Winter Wonder. We will be creating inspiration projects featuring snowflakes, snowmen, ice, winter critters, skating, sledding and everything else that goes along with this cold and beautiful season. In addition to the incredibly talented WRC design team, we are also very excited to be collaborating with several members of the Doodles Paper Playground team. I am please to be a part of both teams. We invite you to hop along with us, and be sure to leave a comment on every leg of the hop! We will be giving away prizes and offering a Blog Candy Discount Code, so be sure to visit every stop on the hop for more chances to win! All of the prize details are at the bottom of my post. Now, let's take a look at my project.

My card uses lots of products from the White Rose Crafts December Subscription Kit. The only items I used that are not from the kit, is my blue and white cardstock, and Memento Ink in Sweet Plum. This kit is truly chock full of wonderful products that are sure to inspire. I love the non-traditional colors, and the overall Wintry feel. I chose to work with one of the images from ScrapBerry's Elegant Toppers, the ice skates specifically. I decided to make my shaker on top of the skates. The Sparkle Blend that comes exclusively in the kit is called "Very Merry," and I was sure to chose colors that really brought out the ones in the Blend.

You can see in the photo above some of the wonderful colors and sequins in the Very Merry SParkle Blend. I love the little trees! Behind the skates, I used a piece of plum snowflake paper, which is also from ScrapBerry.

I stamped my sentiment in Sweet Plum Memento ink, and I also distressed my light blue cardstock with the same color. I felt the cardstock was too stark without a little extra something. It also worked really well with the distressed image of the ice skates.

That's my completed card! I hope I have given you some ideas on what to do with the kit, if you choose to get one for yourself (which I highly recommend!). Below is the full hop list, as well as the prize info. Please be sure to stop by all the blogs listed and leave everyone some love. 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

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w


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 . 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
