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.

Whimsy Two for One!

Don't forget, there's Wee Stamps Candy still available through the 30th of September here!

There are two projects being share with you all today!  Hence, the Two for One!  I know you probably thought it was a give away right?  Sorry, just me being humorous!

My First project is for the Release Hop!
The Second is for the NEW Whimsy Stamps Challenge starting today!  So get out your stamping stuff and make a project to join us and win a prize! The theme is:



Hi everyone and welcome to the
Whimsy Stamps September Rubber Stamps and Die Release Blog Hop!

Our brand new September release Rubber Stamps and Stamp Sets, Whimsy Shapeology Dies and Whimsy Designer Paper 6x6 packs are now available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store!! For a full reveal of our new release goodies, please visit the Whimsy blog.

To celebrate our new release, the DT are holding a blog hop today and are sharing creations made with some of the brand new Elisabeth Bell, Time For Tea Designs and Raindrop Echo Designs stamps! The blog hop has a prize of 2 new release stamps hidden somewhere along the way and you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw!

To be entered into today's blog hop prize draw, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT's posts listed below by 12.00PM EST tomorrow. All winners will be announced on the Whimsy blog on Friday.

So On to my project:

I used the lovely NEW Under the  Mistletoe Girl and Under The Misteltoe Boy Stamps today for my first holiday presentation card!  They were masked just at the mistletoe to appear that they both want the other to kiss!  They are just too darling!  I went outside of my comfort zone and created a holiday card in light muted colors and a Shabby Chic feel.  Loads of embossing enamel was used inside the image area to envelope around the two love birds for a romantic touch.  Also, I think I'm in love with the little chipboard hearts too, they have color ready spots in them you can add a touch of color to to match your projects as you can see with the green lines through them!  Aren't they fabby?  Hope you enjoy!
