Hi everyone! Anyone who reads my blog knows I’m a longtime Lawn Fawn fan. I finally decided to try one of the challenges. This time it’s Wonderful Winter, so I used the Winter Skies set, my Copic Ciaos, and some tips from Sandy Allnock in this amazing video.  I might try this again with a pastel winter sky or maybe a fall sky/background.  Take a look at Sandy’s channel for a ton of coloring tips for Copics, Watercolor, and Colored Pencils. 


I have linked* to the stamps and dies below below and until next time, be safe in these crafting streets.

Hi everyone, Gaby here today with a small project you can do if you are having guests over for the holidays. I made some place cards like this for Thanksgiving and I thought it would be fun to recreate this with a Christmas theme. You can do these in one evening if you prep all of your paper and die cuts beforehand.

Check out the video below for what you'll need to make these.

I hope you enjoyed this video and your are inspired to make your own place cards, until next time, happy crafting.

My favorite thing to do right now! I have been making cards like crazy and using markers and stamps. These are the cards I've made in the past week. 


Tons of thanks!

I am starting this in the hopes that other people will do it too and we can all spread some joy. I handmake things all the time, from yarn to paper, I'm always creating. I decided this year I would make 1 dozen hand made cards and bag them up with other handmade items and "drop" them as gifts.  My hope is that people will find them and be prompted to do the same thing. I did my first one today, so I'll keep everyone posted on how it goes, here's the first drop.
