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.

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'…

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…
