A Pillow Book is a diary of sorts. It doesn't just talk about the day's events, but contains lists, observations, conversations, musings, anything the writer feels like writing about really. 21st Century is because this is a modern pillow book, since it's done on a computer.
This is me. This is what my life is all about. I will let you into my head a bit... feel what I'm feeling, see what I'm creating, understand what I'm learning. Enjoy my journey right along with me!

Thanks a Latte
Hello! Today I am sharing a card that I made for my husband. I feel that sometimes we don't thank our spouses enough, so when I received the Thanks A Latte stamp set and die set from Lawn Fawn, I knew that I had to use it for him.
My husband's favorite color is red, so I needed to use that for the mug. I decided to go with turquoise for the cup, as I love that combination. Behind the die cut mugs, I used an older plaid paper from DCWV.
I decided to make my own background with Rich Cocoa and Love Letter Memento ink with the stamps from this set. I tied the hand cut sentiment in with brown cardstock and Super Fine White embossing powder.
The card needed a little sparkle, so I broke out the "Star Spangled" Sparkle Blend and added a few coordinating sequins.
My husband loved the card. I am really grateful that he appreciates my crafts, and he's always interested on how I make things. This stamp set is a lot of fun to work with, colors up quickly, and I am finding it to be pretty versatile. That's it for me today. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
