Happy New Year from WRC!

Happy New Year! I enjoyed 2018 for the most part, but I am looking forward to starting a new year. I am hoping for a few big changes this year, how about you? Today, the White Rose Crafts team wants to wish all of the "Rosies," as you fans are affectionately called, a Happy 2019 by posting some New Year's creations. And to add to the celebration, White Rose Crafts is running a New Year Special from January 1st through January 8th. You can get 25% off site-wide using the code "CRAFTY NEW YEAR."

Here is my card using the Snowman Family stamp from Wild Rose Studio. I really like using snowmen in the first few months of the year. They work great for holiday cards, but I use them often for winter cards too.

I colored the Snowman Family with Tombow Dual Brush Markers and a Wink of Stella pen for some sparkle.

I also added some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink around the edges, to mimic my bottom layer. That bottom layer is from LemonCraft's Daydream paper collection. It has a soft, wintry feel that I thought was just right for this card.

I needed a little more shine, so I added a few sequins from the Doodles Paper Playground Icicle Sparkle Blend. I adhered them with On Point Glue from Imagine. It turned out to be a sweet little card that's perfect to send to anyone that you didn't have a chance to send a holiday card to. And goodness knows I have a number of those!

Please be sure to visit the White Rose Crafts Blog to see other New Year's projects and get the full scoop on the sale. Thanks so much 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
