Have you joined us yet for this month's CUTplorations challenge? It's the perfect time to use die cuts to create a party on a card (or tag or layout or ATC or, or, or). Here's the inspiration.

Here's a bit more inspiration for you. A wonderful design from Monika for an anniversary card. A home decor project from Shirley. And a birthday card from me using some coming-soon-to-the-store product you're gonna love.



using Numbers die and Becca's new stamp set - both coming soon



There's one more card over at Deepti's blog which showcases a great way to use black and gold. Although she didn't use die cuts, take a look at this design. It's certainly die cut friendly.

Here's the link to the January challenge. Can't wait to see what you'll make!

I hope you'll follow along and enjoy the process...the smooshing is a lot of fun and super easy!

Hello Crafty Friends! Today's Spotlight Project is a sort of a follow on from Monday's Mixed Media Tutorial. I am looking to make an alternative cover for the note pad I am going to use to record my art journal projects with a little help from two of my favourite stamp club sets, Bloom Sketches and Mixed Media Grunge, and the Daisy Dance and Foiled Again ARTplorations Stencils.

Here is the finished project:
