Hip Kit Club: Layout Process Video

So I really don’t think I can say enough good things about the Hip Kit Club and especially the brilliant leader, Kimberly. These kits are so fun and I truly enjoy working with them every month. So here is my first layout and process video with the May kit and addons.

Hope you enjoy the video and let me know what you think about it being a bit longer. This layout was totally inspired by fellow DT member Ashley Fowler. She does such a great job using 12″ strips of paper I decided to give it a go. It was a rough start but I really love the finished layout.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the video!

Peerless Watercolor Tutorial Video

Hey y’all! Today I am up on the Sweet Stamp Shop Blog with a fun video tutorial featuring the Peerless Watercolors. I have had these laying around for several months and have been so hooked on my $4 Michaels watercolors I have totally neglected these little gems. The Peerless Watercolors are super unique and so easy to work with.




Check out the video tutorial here! Thanks for stopping by!

May Hip Kit Club

Hey y’all, I am super excited to share my May Hip Kit Club Open Box Video with you today!!! I am so in love with the bold colors and geometric patterns. I mention in the video that it is hard to tell which side of the paper is intended for the kit, this is because Kimberly does such an amazing job that all the papers work so well together. I think my favorite part of the kit is the color palette. The add-ons are just chalk full of ink and mist and these amazing American Craft brayer stamps. I can’t wait to share some projects with you over the next month.


Gold Crush

Hey there, if you know me from my YouTube Channel then you might already be aware that I am totally, completely, utterly, head over heels, crushing on GOLD!!!

Whether it is gold foil, gold glitter, gold paint, I love it all.

So I wanted to share a few of my current gold favorites and some photos of projects I have made using gold accents.

The product links (click on price) will take you to sites where I have purchased items or they were sent to me for review. Either way these are my go to places!

My Mind’s Eye Market Street Ashbury Heights Dotted Foil Paper : I absolutely love the colors of this paper, they are so fresh and springy. The gold foil dots just make the perfect finishing touch.



My Mind’s Eye Ashbury Heights Decorative Stickers:  I don’t think you have to have any other pieces from this collection to use these stickers, they are so versatile and fun.




My Mind’s Eye Necessities Metallic Dot Paper:  So if you loved the Dear Lizzy Gold Polka Dot Vellum that is now off in the land of Sold Out Forever, then this is a perfect replacement.188143-600x600-1


My Mind’s Eye Necessities Metallic Confetti Foiled Vellum Paper : Again this is just perfection. I love love love the confetti look of this and plan on turning it upside down so the confetti is falling from the top.


Heidi Swapp Gold Lame: I love this stuff. I have linked to an online website but you can get this at Michaels/Joann/Hobby Lobby with a coupon.

Krylon 18k Gold Leafing Pen: I love this pen for journaling and outlining on my projects.
