Now... to sign it, seal it, and get a proper photo...
this might look neat as a small art print too, huh?
...stay tuned!

Announcing.....A NEW CLASS!

One of my favorite ways to add an artistic touch in my paper crafting and art journaling is through the use of stamps. Stamps really are just another mark-making tool in our crafty belt. In this class, we will explore artistic ways to put your stamps to use!

Please have a look at this little video for more info:

Want a few more details?
Here you go...

With this course, you will receive instant access to the following:
  • SIX intro videos discussing why I buy a stamp, how I stamp, and tried and true design concepts for stamping success.
  • TWELVE start to finish project videos: 6 layouts, 3 cards, and 3 art journal spreads, all voiced in real-time.
  • That comes to a total of 18 videos, with just over 3 1/2 hours of video content. 
  • A PDF download of course content.
  • Access to me via email for any and all questions, ponderings, etc...
  • Ability to download videos to your own personal computer or compatible device for permanent archiving and viewing.
  • Twelve exclusive projects that is are available to students in this class and are guaranteed not to be shared elsewhere.
  • Online access to class as long as my website is active (which should be a very long time).
  • Comment form in which to chat and share links to your work.
  • And, what I hope, is an abundant amount of inspiration!
You may purchase class now for only $23

Questions and Answers:

How are these videos different from what you already post for free on YouTube?
  • While I do share a bit about my process in those videos, these videos are much more in-depth. I provide more detailed descriptions and more comprehensive tutorials of my process. My YouTube videos are either fast forwarded, voiced over, or both. All of the videos in this course are voiced in real-time and nothing is fast forwarded. In addition, I have not done a complete and comprehensive stamping video on my YouTube. This course is indeed the first of its kind!
What supplies do I need?
  • I encourage you to take this course regardless of the supplies you currently have! The tips and ideas should provide you with plenty of inspiration to get you started, even if your supplies are limited. That being said, I do realize it is helpful to know more than that. So, the bare minimum supplies I suggest for this course are the following: 
A pen
Some sort of paint (even old house paint will do)
Three stamps: a small, a medium, and a large. (An alphabet stamp wouldn't hurt but isn't necessary)

  • The classroom page will contain a detailed supply link list
Do I need to know how to stamp to take this class?
  • Nope. While I do operate and approach this coarse with the assumption that you have a very basic knowledge of stamping, it is not required. You are welcome to email me any time with questions!
Do you offer a money-back guarantee?
  • While I feel this class is an extremely good value for the price, I would not want anyone to be unhappy with their purchase. If that is indeed the case, please contact me directly and we can work together to resolve any issue you may be having.
Speaking of price, how much is the course?
  • Only $23! 
How do I buy this course and access my materials?
  • You may purchase this course in my ETSY SHOP HERE. Upon purchase, you will be sent an email with the PDF download. This PDF also includes the private classroom page link as well as the video passcode. If you have any difficulties with the email, the links, or the PDF... simply email me ( and we will resolve any and all issues asap!
What if I have a question that wasn't answered here?

Thanks so much for your loyal support and I look forward to seeing you in class!

Gift Toppers...

Faced with a growing pile of scraps, and not wanting to recycle them just yet, I decided to play with layering and embellishing (lots of lovely 28 Lilac Lane goodies) to create some fun gift toppers!

These will be perfect on some presents wrapped in a solid kraft, or even gold...

Such a fun way to use up scraps!

See you soon!

Scrapping With Stamps, A Video, Christmas Presents, September Pocket Page and a Bit of Documented Life...

Hello, hello! I was able to grab several hours of uninterrupted studio time this past week! And, that means... I have a good bit of things to share. YAY!

First up, I am in the planning stages of a new class all about using stamps in an artistic way in your paper crafting. I worked up a little video and talked about that...

Take a look...

SO, if you are interested (or not) in that type of class, please do let me know. Comment below, or email (

Then, I was having so much fun with those buttons, that I went a head and wrapped some Christmas Presents...

Don't they look pretty?!?!

And, I love the FLAIR too!

I also had a friend challenge me to pick a shape and use only that shape to draw something. As you can see, I picked circles...

It was hard! HA!

Speaking of circles... I put loads of the gorgeous 28 Lilac Lane sequins to use in my Documented Life Project. November too... YAY me for being ahead!

And while I was at it, I had a card made up that I am hand delivering... 
So, I figured I would take the liberty to make a fun little package for it too!

Love layering all these bits!

And last, but not least...
My September pocket pages...


and more lovely buttons!


As always, the links and such to things I use most often are on my FAQ page.
Thanks for stopping by! 
See you soon!

A New Art Journaling Video!

Hi there!

I must confess, it sort of feels like I should be given a medal for this video. Getting a new Mac up and running with all of my old files and preferences... well... let's just say it was not simple. Ah... but I am blessed to have a new computer after dousing mine with ginger tea last week...


And now... a new video!


And, I'll be back with more throughout the week on my Instagram and YouTube.

Thanks for watching!

And Sometimes You Spill the Tea...

So, it turns out that my MacBook is not nearly excited about my morning tea as I am... shocker, I know. After a mild (or, major) moment of panic, some bonding with the hair dryer, various prayers and cries for help... let's just say, the poor thing was totaled. Thus began a long week of computers, hard drives, data backup, poor customer service, and more super thrilling things...

Ah - but, I am back up and running and iMovie is working! Huzzah! So... I will have a video coming soon.

In the mean time... here is a little sneaky peaky...

See you soon!
