Hi there crafty friends and welcome to #TexturalTuesdays and Hedgehugs! :) Otherwise known as the first #TexturalTuesdays of 2017.
It’s going to be a fun one today as I share a card made using Avery Elle products made by Heather Campbell who is also a designer for Ellen Hutson. She is so amazing.
This card I made for #TexturalTuesdays is using tons of color mediums: Copic markers, Zig Clean Color Markers, and Distress Inks!! All on one card. And I *think* I pulled it off. ;) As I sold most of my Copics? This was way out of my comfort zone, but I still did it. Sometimes you just have to take the bull by the horns. I knew in order to give the hedgie the perfect quills, the Copic markers would be the best way to go.
For all of the behind the scenes action on the card, I urge you to check out the CLASSroom blog for my #TexturalTuesdays and Hedgehugs card. You’ll read more about how this card was created and see more photos, as well.
All of the supplies for this card are listed below. As I am an affiliate for Ellen Hutson, I do receive a small, teeny tiny, itty-bitty commision for anything you purchase through me. And I thank you in advance. It keeps my blog semi working (ha!) and bug free. ♥
Wishing you all a wonderful day! xo
Hey there! It’s #TexturalTuesdays over in The CLASSroom and I have a new post showing how to Make Your Own Stencil. In my post I simply use Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies and acetate. So super easy.
I made the card below using the stencil I created from acetate, the Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Holiday Words by Julie Ebersole ,with a little texture paste, and some glitter for shimmer.
Please be sure to check out the post in The CLASSroom for the full details on how to Make Your Own Stencil (and please don’t be mad when you see how easy it is. HAHHA!!) The great thing about using your favorite dies is that the possibilities are endless.
To give the card added texture, the Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Stitches Cover Plate by Julie Ebersole was used on a piece of Bazzill Card Shoppe Wax Lips Cardstock and the edges were then distressed. I love doing this.
The key in making anything? Is to make what you love. Same goes with stencils, I suppose. And I had a great time making this card. I hope it shows. ♥
Thank you SO much for joining me today and for checking out my how-to in The CLASSroom. I do appreciate every one of you. xo

Hey there! It’s another #texturaltuesday over on the CLASSroom blog for Ellen Hutson, LLC and I’ve made a super cool Felt Flower on a canvas that I hope that you’ll check out. The link is right HERE <—.
Today’s project is a feature that all the Ellen Hutson designers are doing this week and that is to work with felt in their projects. It was really fun! I always love making felt flowers and the canvas that I made for today is certainly no exception.
Here is a look at the canvas with the felt flower.
The die for my flower is from Memory Box (it is the Plush Ranunculus) and the felt is from Taylored Expressions (the assorted yellow -orange).
Making projects like this is so much fun! I was able to get super painty with the background. And, though I got carried away with the sequins, I really like how this turned out. The big, bold felt flower really makes this small canvas so happy.
The full tutorial and *tons* of photos for how I made this canvas is over on the CLASSroom blog , so please head over there for more information or if you’d like to just see how I made the canvas.
As usual, all of my supplies are listed below. If you have any questions on the products, please send me an e-mail or comment below. Thank you!! ♥
I have a brand new #TexturalTuesdays project that I named “Be Kind” from the stencil I used on the CLASSroom blog today featuring ways to find your own texture around the house. This was a really fun little canvas for me to make and I hope that you will all enjoy it, too.
Finding new ways to create texture, especially from things that you just have lying around the house, is so much fun. Even if you’re just using it as a focal piece, as I did for two of my pieces on the canvas. But the fun part is that you can see from the pieces used (go to the BLOG ) how these items could be used in so many different ways.
Here is a sneak peek of the Be Kind canvas just to whet your appetite:
I know you can’t tell much from this…it’s a TRUE sneak peek!! But, there’s actually a lot of texture right there. ;) Even just in the words “Be Kind”. I’m loving this sneaky thing. Hahha!!
In the supplies list you’ll be able to see what PRODUCTS I used but not the free stuff, so that won’t give it all away. I really do hope that you’ll check out the full post. It’s not too lengthy and I hope that you’ll find it useful. I know that if you’re a card-maker that enjoys making CAS cards that you may not be super interested in texture, but maybe you would want to use something you learn from the post for art journaling? And it’s really fun and not super messy…not too bad. :)
I hope that you all remember to Be Kind to yourselves first and foremost. It seems that we are all so busy trying to be nice to others we forget about ourselves. Be Kind to YOU. ♥

Hi my friends! It’s been a busy week and I have a new FUN card on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today. I’m using one of the Designer Foam shapes – 3D Foam Butterflies ! They are so fun and so super versatile.
Here’s the card I made, but I hope that you’ll check out the card on their blog so that you can see all the awesome supplies that I used on it.
They have all kinds of different fun shapes! I can’t wait to have a bit more time to play and have some fun with some of the other shapes, too. But, if you all know me then you KNOW I can’t resist these pretty butterflies anyway. ;)
On just a quick side note: Did any of you get to tune in to the Ustream class that I had with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft last night? It was my first one!! I was super nervous and I ran out of time to complete the project. I had such a great time, though. I’m already brainstorming for my next one. :)
Thank you ALL for checking out my blog, for being followers, and for being the amazing people that YOU are. ♥
