Bullet Journal – Weekly Layout Ideas

Hey friends! Are you into bullet journaling? Do you struggle with your layouts? Do you always use the same layout? Do you have an IG account I should follow?? Comment below!! I can’t wait to hear from you!

Today, I’m showing some of my weekly layout ideas!

I use the Catherine Pooler Canvo Bullet Journal. It is 150 numbered pages, and at 199gsm, the pages are SO thick! So you can use inks, pens, markers, and more without worrying about it bleeding through. There’s also a slew of stencils that coordinate perfectly with the journal. The dots are gray, not too light and not too dark.

I use LePen Black Pens (usually 0.3 and 0.5) and Zebra Mildliner Creative Markers.

Heffy Doodle + Chibitronics IG Hop

Hey friends! Did you see we’re doing a Collaboration Hop between Heffy Doodle and Chibitronics on Instagram!? There are prizes are up for grabs!!

I created this fun light-up card using the Craft with Light Kit – White by Chibitronics. I used lots of Heffy Doodle products! Keep reading on for those links!

First, I created my bright background! I blended some Catherine Pooler inks through my Zapp Attack and Cogs & Code Stencil. I used Heffy Memo Tape to mask off the top and bottom of my card.

I stamped my images from the Bots of Love Stamp Set and then I colored them in with OLO markers. I cut them out using the coordinating dies.

Once I decided where I wanted my lights, I started to prepare for the wiring.

  1. I poked holes through the robots’ hearts where I want the bulbs to show.
  2. Then, I placed the robots on the background where they were going to be glued down once the card is assembled. I made a mark with a pencil through the robots’ heart holes onto the background.
  3. Then, I poked holes through the pencil marks on the background panel.
  4. Lastly, I used a pencil to make marks on my card base where the lights need to be placed.

On my card base, using the pencil marks I made in the last step as a guide, I’ve made marks where the + and – wires need to line up. I did this by taking the lights and placing them down onto my card base so the light was right over top of the pencil mark. Then, I looked at where the copper + and – are on the light unit and drew lines where I need the wires to be lined up to touch the copper part.

I’ve also created a “housing unit” for my battery with a plus and minus sign on it, so I know which way to insert the battery once it’s time. I also marked where I want the battery to be on the card base.

Next, I started by taking my tape and cutting it in half down the center to create smaller/narrower pieces. This isn’t necessary, but was helpful with navigating the tape.

I adhered my battery housing unit to my card base and started placing my + tape. This tape is the top wire which goes to the base of the battery housing unit.

Then, I placed my – tape which starts on the flap of the battery housing unit.

Next, I used 3D foam tape around the whole base of the card to “lift” my card front up so the battery doesn’t stick out farther than the rest of front panel. I attached the stamped images with 3D foam squares, making sure to line the robots up to the lights properly.

Come join in the IG HOP to enter to win the prizes from Heffy Doodle and Chibitronics!

Life is Better with YOU

Hey friends! How do we feel about the color purple?? I tend to lean towards the pinks and yellows for my cards, for whatever reason. However, I am loving this color combo of Sixteen Candles, Pixie Dust, and Drive-In! What do you think??

Today, I am sharing a new card using the NEWLY RELEASED Love and Lace Collection from Catherine Pooler!

I created this beautiful card using the Yours Truly Stamp Set. After I ink blended my purple inks, I stamped the elements from the Yours Truly Stamp Set all around the background with black ink.
I created the white frame using the new Fancy Loop Die.
I stamped my sentiment from the Forever Yours Sentiments Stamp Set with WOW Embossing Glue Ink and then applied white embossing powder to it. I heated it up with my favorite new heat tool!

Stay tuned as I continue to share more projects made using this New Collection!

DIY Gift Card Pocketfold using the Thank You Kindly Bundle

Hey friends! Did you come to learn how to make this gift card holder? It’s SO easy to make! Craft along with me! Grab your scoring board and bone folder, a piece of 8.5″x11″ cardstock, some patterned paper, some stamp sets and some dies!

Start by creating your pocketfold out of 8.5″x11″ cardstock and your scoring board. On the longer edge, score at 3″ and 8″. Turn the paper 90 degrees and score the shorter edge at 2 3/8″ and 6 1/8″. Using scissors, cut your corners off completely. Fold and score on the remaining score lines. Use a corner punch to round your corners.

Now, you can decorate your pocketfold! Use patterned paper, such as the Bee Thankful Paper Pad! I also used the Ruffles and Dashes Dies to add a stitched border to my inside paper.

Don’t forget to decorate both sides!

Now, let’s make the gift card holder pocket. Using the 2nd smallest scallop frame from the Ruffles and Dashes Dies, cut out a piece of patterned cardstock. You want the inside of your pocket to be 2″ x 3.5″. Make a score line on your sides at 3/4″. Trim off the bottom so you’re left with 2 3/4″. Score the bottom so you have a 3/4″ flap. Use scissors to angle cut the 2 bottom corners.

Now create some decorations! I used the Corner Swag Stamp Set and the Thank You Kindle Stamp Set. I used OLO markers to color in my stamped images and a Gelly Roll pen to create my highlights. I cut out the stamped images with the coordinating die sets.

To hold my pocketfold together, I punched 2 holes on the front flap and the bottom flap and threaded through some Torch Twine.

Craftroom Tour!

Hey guys! I’m so excited to share some updated photos of my craftroom! If you have any questions at all, please feel free to message me on Instagram or leave a comment on this post!

The pegboard and accessories are from IKEA!

These are the Alex drawers from IKEA. That’s my Bernadoodle pup – Knox! He says, “HI!” This is where I take all my photos of my projects!

My hubs made me these amazing marker holders! You can see his work at www.onecraftyguy.com or follow him on Facebook or Instagram!

He also made me the ink pad holders!

I did find these Ink Pad Storage on Scrapbook.com that are similar!

I love having everything sorted by rainbow! These are acrylic jars I got from Amazon. I also ordered a bunch of different twines and ribbons from Amazon and sorted them all by color.

I love having my colored cardstock nearby, so I keep them in their packaging and have them organized in my cart. I used IKEA’s dish separator to keep them up straight!

Making a Pocketfold Tri-fold Card with a Bookmark

Hello, my fav crafty peeps! How are you doing? I’m doing AMAZING because I get to share this fun card with you! The new Holly Jolly Christmas Collection from Catherine Pooler is available for purchase now! So make sure you get your goodies before they sell out!!

If you want to buy the whole Christmas Critters Bundle of goodies, you can use this link here.

To create this card, I’ve used the Better Not Pout Patterned Paper Pack, the Naughty List Stamp Set, the Merriest Sentiments Stamp Set, and the Tree Trimmings Die.

I stamped my images from the Naughty List Stamp Set, colored them with Copic markers, and then die cut them with the coordinating die set.

For my center panel, I stamped my sentiment from the Naughty List Stamp Set and then cut it out with the Circles Dies. I also added my dotted circles using the Circle Party Stamp Set and Melon Ice. On a piece of Better Not Pout Patterned Paper, I die cut the Tree Trimmings Die in the center. Then, I adhered my circle cutout in the center with my favorite Bearly Art Glue.

For my bookmark, I trimmed down a piece of Better Not Pout Patterned Paper to 2″x 5″. I rounded off the edges with my most favorite 3-in-1 Corner Punch. I added my hole reinforcer from the Notecard Frame & Tag Dies. I just love the “Fa La La La La’ sentiment from the Merriest Sentiments Stamp Set, so I stamped that in the corner using Midnight Ink. Finally, I added a few pieces of Tuxedo Turquoise Twine.

To get my scalloped edge, I used the Decorate Edge Dies.

To tie the whole thing together, I used a brad and the Party Twist Twine.

Such a fun card filled with cheeriness! Thank you SO much for stopping by my blog today! I appreciate you so much!!

Heffy Doodle New Release Inspiration Blog Hop

Welcome to the Heffy Doodle New Release Inspiration Blog Hop!  We are so excited to share amazing cards from our Design Team members using the new release!  For today’s special Blog Hop, you can win a £50 voucher to the Heffy Doodle store!

Get your Sweetie Pie stamp set for FREE with a £30 spend (not inc. shipping). And get the coordinating dies too with a £45+ spend!

To create this trifold card, I started with a sheet of cardstock trimmed to 4.5″ x 11″. I scored at the 3″ mark and the 6″ mark.

For all of my rainbow blending, I’m using Maker Forte’s Color Hive Inks in the colors Flamingo, Yellowstone, and Vegas Strip. This is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE rainbow blend! You can get a huge range of colors from just these 3 colors!

Here’s how I get the best blend:
1. I start with Yellowstone and blend it in the center of my cardstock.
2. Next, I blend Flamingo on the top of my cardstock (reaching all the way to the top). I gently blend the Flamingo into the Yellowstone to create an orange color.
3. I grab my Vegas Strip and repeat the process on the bottom of the cardstock.
4. Now, I take my Vegas Strip and blend a purple at the very tippy top of the cardstock to create a pinky-purple blend.
5. Then, I get my Flamingo again and blend at the very bottom of the cardstock to create a blue-purple blend.
6. If needed, I will take my Yellowstone brush and just lightly blend into the Flamingo and Vegas Strip.
7. I usually also spritz my background with a Mister Perfect Spray Bottle filled with regular water. I will also sometimes flick white watercolor paint using a Watercolor Brush.

For this panel, I blended my rainbow using the new Bean Scene Stencil. To create a little peek-a-boo, I’m using the flap die from the Slimline Scallop Peekaboo Dies.

If you were wondering what sort of black and white paper I’m using for my striped paper, you’ll be happy to know that I made it myself! I simply used the chisel end of a marker! I wanted them to look hand-drawn, so I just freehanded it! Easy peasy!

For this little panel, I’ve used the new Notre Dame Stencil! I’ve also made some more peekaboos using the little dies from the Treemendous Peekaboo Dies.

For my front panel, I’ve used the Love is Everywhere Stencil. I have also used my new favorite tool (the Cropadile!) to add some eyelets to the front of my card to hold my baker’s twine! I made sure to add my eyelets and twine before gluing down the inside panel!

For my sentiment, I’ve used the Gumbelievable Stamp Set and stamped the sentiment on black cardstock using Embossing Glue. Then, I sprinkled white embossing powder to the sentiment and melted the powder with a heat gun.

For my super adorable shaker lollipop, I’ve used the NEW Sweet Tooth Shaker Dies! Omg, are they adorable or what?! You can make all sorts of sweets and shakers! For my stripes, I used my chisel marker again! I mixed and matched Sparkle Mixes to get all the colors of the rainbow in there.

For my adorable candy jar and gumball machine, I’ve used the Gumbelievable Stamp Set again and then added a layer of Glossy Accents over top! I used OLO markers to color all my images.

For my little circles, I used the circle confetti dies that come in the Sweet Tooth Shaker Dies.

I hope you have LOVED seeing how I made this rainbowy fun mini trifold card!

Sweet-n-Spooky Mini Pocketfold Notebook

Have you seen the New Sweet-n-Spooky Bundle from Catherine Pooler?! The release is available now for purchase! Make sure to get your spooky bundle before they sell out!

To make this really fun pocketfold notebook, I trimmed down a piece of Letter size white cardstock to 11″ x 4″ and then folded it into a trifold. Then, I added the too cute Sweet-n-Spooky Patterned Paper to each flap on the inside and the outside.

Then, I created a pocket by trimming down a rectangle piece of patterned paper. I scored at .5″ on 3 sides and then folded at the score lines. Using scissors, I trimmed off the corners of the side and bottom flaps. Next, I can add double sided tape to each flap and then adhere it to my pocketfold.

I created 2 tags using my favorite tag punch.

I cut a piece of black cardstock using the new Eek Boo Cover Plate.

For the mini notebook, I simply trimmed down a piece of the patterned paper to form a book cover. I folded some regular computer paper to form the pages and then stapled them together. I used red SuperTape to adhere my pages to the cover because this tape is super strong.

Next, I stamped my images from the Toil and Trouble Stamp Set and colored them in with Copic markers.

I trimmed down some twine to wrap around my pocketfold, leaving enough to tie into a bow.

Here are more photos of the finished mini pocketfold notebook!

Catherine Pooler and Ellen Hutson IG Hop

Hey friends! Did you see that Catherine Pooler and Ellen Hutson kicked off an Instagram Hop together today!? You DO NOT want to miss out! They’re BOTH giving prizes away to 3 lucky winners! Woot!! Head to the IG Hop here.

I’m sharing TWO cards I made using this amazing Float Your Boat stamp set that Catherine Pooler’s team made exclusively for Ellen Hutson. Read on to see how I created these cards!

For my first card, I trimmed down my Parqs and Rec Cover Plate Die to change the sizes of the rectangles. (I love when dies can be used in different ways, don’t you?!).

On a piece of A2 White Premium Cardstock, I blended Something Borrowed, Oh Boy!, All that Jazz, Aquatini, and Minted inks. Then I spritzed my background with water and some paint droplets using a paint brush.

Next, I glued my frame down to my background and then stamped my sentiments using Midnight Ink. I used the White Premium Cardstock to stamp my images from the new Float Your Boat stamp set. I colored my images with Copic markers and then die cut them using the coordinating dies. I used 3D foam squares to attach my stamped and cut images to the card front. I added some St. Cloud sequins at the end for a finishing touch!

For my second card, I used Heffy Memo Tape to mask off the bottom of the card front. I used Drive-In and Serenade for my background. Then, I used Black Jack on the bottom of the card for my “road”. I cut the background down using the Notecard Postage Dies. For this card, I stamped images from the Float Your Boat stamp set as well as the Special Delivery stamp set. I added some Sofia sequins to this card!

Those are my cards to share with you today for this really fun IG Hop. I hope you enjoy the Hop and GOOD LUCK!!! Remember, there will be 3 winners! Make sure to check the IG Hop for all the details.
