White Rose Crafts January Add-Ons Hop

Hello and welcome to the White Rose Crafts January "Love Story" Hop! The hop will run from January 14th through January 18th at 12PM. There is a chance for you to win a $15 gift certificate to WRC by leaving a comment at each stop along the way. The winner will be chosen at random after 12PM EST on the 18th. As an added bonus, you projects can be featured on the WRC Blog when we announce our winner! All you need to do is upload a photo of your project to the White Rose Crafts  Facebook Gallery and then you'll have a chance to be featured!
I have a card to share that uses lots of wonderful items that you can find in the White Rose Crafts shop.

I started by looking through the many Add-Ons for the subscription kit (more about that at the bottom of this post). I found that I had a few of the items that would coordinate really well together. The sweet Jackalope from Lawn Fawn's Believe in Yourself stamp set was the perfect jumping off point. I also knew that I wanted to do a shaker card. No big surprise there if you follow my blog.

For the shaker itself, I used Doodles Paper Playground's "Love Potion" Sparkle Blend and I backed it with a piece of Lawn Fawn's Rainbow Perfectly Plaid paper. Man, I can't get enough of that stuff! Once I had those 2 elements ready to go, I set forth on designing the rest of my card.

I love the beautiful Mountain Rose Metallic cardstock, so I used that as my main background. It has such a beautiful shimmer. I decided that I wanted to add a graphic element, so I used the fantastic Circles and Pluses stencil from Studio Light with Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink. even though it is very different from the Lawn Fawn Plaid paper, I think it ties in together nicely. I also used the sentiments that were included in the Believe in Yourself stamp set, and I added a few extra sequins outside of the shaker. And that's my card!

Have you seen our January "Love Story" Subscription Kit? There are only a few left in stock, so don't miss out on a chance to own your own bit of Festive Winter Elegance. But did you know that with each of our kits, there is always an Kit Add-On section of the Store that compliments your Monthly Subscription Kit? And did you know you can get anything in that January Kit Add-On section for 10% off using the code Add-Ons 10!!! Your next stop on the hop is Anna-Marie. Thanks so much for stopping by. Happy hopping!

The Jackalope has always been one of my favorite stamps. There is something just so sweet about it. I think it pared nicely with the shaker bits and the stenciled banner. Such a fun card!
Love your shaker card, its so pretty!
That is so sweet and I love shakers. That jackolope brings back great memories to me for when we used to see them all over the place in our neck of the woods....not real ones but fake ones that were made to look real hanging on the walls like one would do a trophy hunt image.

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
