Extra Styles


My crafting resolutions:
1. To create more than 50% of my projects with either recycled materials or scrap left over materials to cut waste and excessive earth fillers.
2. Teach paper crafting classes and share the Joy.
3.Custom Design Products I love to use and share.
4. Learn everyday what it takes to be patient, understanding, tolerant and giving.

Exciting News in PaperCraft Essentials Magazine

I will draw a winner 6-11 for the Wedding dress die candy at 12:00 noon, don't miss out! here.  I didn't quite make it to 450 followers, but I can't wait any longer to share some of the other dies!  Good Luck to everyone!

Oh my goodness, Oh my goodness!  This is not only a wonderful day because I get to share a project with you that was recently published (June 7th) in Papercraft Essentials magazine, but it's the first published work for the Shape EZ templates as well!  In case you didn't know, I've been diligently working on SVG cut templates with Whimsy Stamps since October 2011.  They have brought me great satisfaction and always a fabulous challenge to take the image out of my head, draw it in cut lines and create out of the ordinary shaped cards, bags, tags and even flowers.  I love to be challenged and learn new techniques to share with all of you but to get that work realized in an actual magazine is beyond real!  I thank all of my followers and every artist that has chosen to work with the templates to assist in realizing this blessing.  :)  

There was a collaboration of Whimsy artists for this submission, Sylvia Zet of Wee Stamps and Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs.   In the latest issue of Papercraft Essentials Magazine (UK). a wonderful combination of cute images and sentiments were included for free with issue 82! My Whimsy DT sisters Simonne, Iris Weichmann, Lori, Mariska and I had the great opportunity to  work with these stamps and create projects for the recent issue. All of us were published and brought out our own unique talents to provide inspiration for readers to use these stamps.  I am so proud to have been included!  Thanks to Denise Lynn from Whimsy Stamps, Sylvia Zet, Ann Vento and of course the publishers of Papercraft Essentials Magazine for the great chance.

                        This picture provided by Simonne, lucky girl lives where the magazine is sold!  Thanks you're the best!

 Papercraft Essentials Magazine issue 82: don't forget, you can get your own set of these stamps (images and sentiments!) now for free!   

So, I guess I shouldn't make you wait any longer!  Boy, I sure hope you get inspiration from it!
