Halloween 2017 |Whimsy Monster Tages + Video

Happy Friday! Thanks for stopping by!  If you also follow me on my Instagram you will know that I am in the midst of a HUGE kitchen reno! After many years of talking about it, putting it on hold last year, it is finally HAPPENING! We are all beyond excited and I am of course going crazy with design choices and decisions! I may create a dedicated post here to talk about it but for now, if you follow me on Instagram: inkspots  - you will get snippets of what is happening!

I have a fun set of tags and one picture frame insert to share with you and they all feature the adorable new clear stamp set from Whimsy Stamps. These cuties would look great on a variety of Halloween crafty makes. I made a tag and a frame insert but you could create a trifold card, treat boxes or bags or even a fun Halloween banner! The possiblitlies are endless!


I am going to add this to a picture frame for my Halloween decor. The background is a digital paper from Whimsy stamps that I may be slightly obsessing over lately. It is so darned PERFECT!

All images were stamped on my favorite Bristal Strathmore watercolor paper that pairs up fabulously with Zig Clean Color real brush markers. I can’t believe how much of a difference this paper makes to my coloration. It is well worth picking up and checking out for yourself!

Craft Haul 2017

Good morning or afternoon my lovelies! I am posting my latest Craft Haul. I am getting ready for Christmas….at least in my crafty life! For the past few years, I have created a Christmas video series sharing the crafty makes that I create for my family, friends, for my Christmas cards and gift giving as well as for my December Daily album.

Lawn Fawn has an awesome, mega release for Fall & Winter this year and I went a little crazy with all the Christmas/Winter ones. I can’t wait to share what I have planned for this release and I really hope to inspire you to craft your own little treasures this year! I did buy these items in two separte hauls…….obviously the restraint that I practiced the first time I shopped did not carry through to the second time!

I do plan to use more than just Lawn Fawn in my Christma series…….Whimsy has some GORGEOUS Christmas themed products that have just released and there is more to come next month! As well, there are so sweet things that I have been picking up here and there over the year.

T’is Near Halloween | Whimsy Art Journal Page +Video

Happy Friday! I have a new video to share with you today that features one of the new Whimsy Digital images released today! I totally adore this cute little witch with her lovely, long, flowing curly hair. I knew that she would look great featured on an Art Journal page. It didn’t take long for me to find the perfect backgound for her – it is one of Whimsy’s digital papers. This made it super easy to merge it together with the image as well as a Whimsy Digital sentiment that was PERFECTION for the page. I really love when crafty things come together so nicely as easily.

The video is basically a coloration video with a little bit of this & that thrown in – Enjoy!

Getting Ready for Christmas!!!

Happy Friday my lovelies! Yes, I am that person. I am already starting to dream about Chrismas and my December Daily album for this year! If you have followed me for a while, you know that I love, love to incorporate my papercrafting and stamping with my December Daily album to create a unique and personal album that documents our Christmas together as a family.

As I am getting to be an old pro about things now, I start ordering the products NOW to make sure that I am not scrambling at the last moment. As soon as I saw the new Lawn Fawn release, I eagerly contemplated which products I should get. I keep in mind that I need to think about what I already have and how I can make old sets work with the new ones.


Last year started sharing which products I was going to be using for my annual Christmas Video series. A lot of you told me that you liked knowing in advance so that if you were inspired by my creations, you would have the products available so that you could make some too!

Without furthur ado, here are the Lawn Fawn products that I have just purchased and some that I already have and will be combining to use this season!


Have a great day and weekend! I will be working on some Halloween projects this weekend.(never papercrafitng the season I am currently in)

Halloween 2017–Sleepy Hollow |Whimsy Stamps

Happy day! I have another Halloween card to share with you and it features an incredible new die set from Whimsy’s new release! This is the Headless Horseman die set but I keep calling it the Sleepy Hollow die set….hence the blog post title :)

I always forget how fast it is to create a card if you don’t actually have to color anything! I made this card in record time!

I love, love this sentiment and how beautifuly it cuts out!

The spooky background was so much fun to make. I love playing with distress inks. At first it just looks rubbish but as you keep working on it, it turns into something amazing!

Mermaid Paper Doll Art Journal -Julie Nutting

Happy Tuesday! Hope you are having a great day! I have a new Art Journal page to share with you today and it features one of Julie Nutting’s Paper doll stamps: Seaside Sally. She is a gorgeous mermaind and I was so happy to finally have the time to create with her!

Usually when I create these pages for my Art Journal, I use papers from my stash. Generally they are so old that they are no longer available to purchase but similar ones can always be found!

I love to mix and match my stamp sets to get more bang for my buck. I keep this in mind when I am purchasing new sets and it is the reason why I bought MFT’s Memazing and Exquisite Ocean sets. I knew I would able to create some stunning ocean scenes with them.

This is also one of my first forays with Distress Oxide inks. I think I love them! They are so different from the Distress inks but I love how they all work together.

I think this photo really shows how everything layered together so prettily. I was sad to see that I couldn’t find any MIster Huey product to link for you. I guess they don’t manufacture it alny more. It really is just a white liquid that you mist over your page.

Pumpkin Witchy | Halloween 2017 +Video

Happy Wednesday! I have the first Halloween-themed card of the year to share with you today!

It features Whimsy’s August release image Pumpkin Witchy! I inked this cutie up using Memento London Fog ink. This ink is a lot lighter than the Tuxedo Black ink that I usually use with my Copics. This means that the inked lines fade into your coloration and give your image that “no-lines” look!

I alos used a few more Whimsy products to create this fun card. I love how all the elements came together!  The paper is from a digital file which makes it so easy to use. You just print out the patterns that you need when you need them! The sentimet and the doodle lines are from 2 different clear stamp sets and I used my FAVORITE rectangle dies to cut out the card mats. I love the uneven stitched lines around the edges!
