WRC May Blog Hop

Hello! It's time for the White Rose Crafts "Barista Blend" Blog Hop. The Kit has actually sold out, although there is a chance for you to get one if you purchase a multi-kit subscription. For the hop, the Design Team is featuring some of the "Add-On" items that are available at White Rose Crafts. These are specially selected items that work beautifully with the kit, but also are terrific on their own. The best part? All of the Kit Add-Ons are on sale for 10% off if you use the code: "MAY ADD-ONS." This hop will run from May 13th through May 17th at noon EST. There is a chance for you to win a $15 WRC Gift Card just for hopping along with us and leaving a comment at each stop along the way! And as an added bonus, do you want your work to be featured on our blog when we announce our hop winner. Share your White Rose Crafts projects over on our Facebook Gallery, and you might just be a featured project! Here's my card for the hop:
I chose to work with the Little Acres stamp set that's called, "Cafe Dreamers." It's a sweet little set with mice, sentiments, and tiny images. I kept my card pretty simple and went with one focal image and a little heart. I colored it all in with Zig Clean Color Markers.
Everything was stamped with VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturne. I chose my Zig colors based on the paper I used from Echo Park's "Coffee" paper pad. I have used this paper pad so much since I've gotten it, which was actually before this kit came out. It's just full of great patterns.
I used a few sequins from the "Gingerbread Man" Sparkle Blend, which I adhered with On Point Glue. I inked up my card base with Tea Dye Distress Oxide. It was the perfect color to go with everything else on the card.

Get ready to see some wonderful project from the Design Team. When you're done hopping, head back to the WRC Blog to let us know what add-on item you'd be most excited to play with. Your next stop in the hop is to head back to the White Rose Crafts Blog. Below is the full hop list. Be sure to also hit the WRC Store to check out all the add-ons, and all of the other wonderful items Kay has in the shop. You can use my code: "Alison 15" to save 15% off of your purchase. 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

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 "

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
