DIY Pocketfold Mini Journal Tag Trifold

Hey friends! I’m so glad you’re here! I have a super fun (and much easier than it looks!) project to share with you today! I created this Masculine Trifold a while ago and received many requests for a tutorial! So, that’s what I’m sharing today!

I have step-by-step images for you to follow! Let’s get ready to craft!!

I’ve decorated my pocketfold with Time for Tea’s New Release, but you could use anything to decorate these!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this blog post and learned how to make this project! Please let me know if you have any questions or comments by commenting on this post, or messaging me on Instagram!

I prefer using Catherine Pooler Inks and Maker Forte Inks for my projects.
My GO-TO ink for coloring with Copic/alcohol markers is the reMARKable Eclipse Black Ink. (Trust me, it’s the best I’ve used so far.)

Holy Cow! You’re Pretty Llamazing!

Hello, crafty friends! I hope your week is off to an amazing start!! If it’s not, hopefully this bright and happy card will cheer you right up!

To make this card, I started by blending my beautiful sky background on a piece of A2 cardstock. I spritzed it with water and added some white paint drops. Next, I used my Stitched Slopey Joe Border Dies and blended them with inks as well.

I just love that the Fence Border Die works with the Slopey Joe Dies! So, I just cut that guy out with white cardstock and didn’t add anything to it.

Next, I cut my pieces from the Boats and Barns Die, including 2 barn structures. I ink blended one of the barn structures very dark red and the other barn a lighter red. I placed my darker one behind to be the “inside” of the barn. The lighter red die cut, I cut out the barn door opening and the window opening and added my other die cut pieces with glue.

Once I had my background all set, I stamped my images from the Llamazing Llamas and Udderly Fabulous Stamp Sets. Then, I colored them with Copic markers and die cut them out with the coordinating dies.

The last step is to assemble the card! I grabbed my Glubert Glue and 3D foam squares and strips and got to work!

That’s it for me today! I hope you enjoyed this post! Enjoy the rest of your week!

Xx, Amanda

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 8 Design Team members using the new release!  For today’s special Blog Hop, you can win a £50 voucher to the Heffy Doodle store!

As part of the Blog Hop, I get to share this fun and happy card showcasing some of the brand new products!! Read on to see how I made this card!

To create this card, I am blending a piece of A2 white cardstock with Drive-In, Flirty Fuchsia, Party Dress, and Bellini inks. I am using the brand new Heffy Doodle Stitched Birthday Trio Frame Dies to create a frame for my A2 card.

Next, I’m going to place my stamps where I think I’ll want them to go. This helps me see the finished card without committing to anything just yet!

Once I have my selected stamps from the NEW Safari Animals, Koality Hugs, and Mane Squeeze stamp sets, I am coloring them in with Copic markers and then cutting them out with the coordinating die sets.

For my sentiment, I’m stamping a sentiment from the Wild at Heart Sentiments stamp set and then die cutting it out with one of the small dies from the Stitched Rounded Metric Rectangle Dies.

My final step is to assemble the card and add some accents! I’m using the Heffy Doodle Deep Foam Tape to adhere my trio frame to the ink blended background. I’m using 3D foam squares to attach my stamped images and sentiment. For my sequins, I’m using Glubert glue to hold them down.

Here are some close-ups of the finished card!

To be entered to win the giveaway, all you need to do is comment at each stop along the Blog Hop before May 4th, 2022 at 11:59 PM EST.  The winner will be announced on the Heffy Doodle Blog on May 5th at 10:00 AM EST!

Ridiculously Proud of You

Did you see my last post where I created that beautiful rainbow background with the Scattered Hearts Cover Plate?? Today, I’m going to share the card I made using it!

To make this card, I die cut the Scattered Hearts Cover Plate on a piece of white cardstock.  Once cut, I grabbed another piece of white cardstock and placed it underneath my die cut piece.  Then, I blended a rainbow with Maker Forte Flamingo, Yellowstone, and Neon Lights inks.  This gives me TWO backgrounds at once!

For my sweet pup, I used Enjoy the Little Things stamp set. I colored him with Copic markers and then die cut him with the coordinating dies. I propped him up with 3D foam squares and put him on a piece of round vellum.

For my sentiment, I grabbed my Brighter Days Sentiment Cards and trimmed out the “just so ridiculously proud of you” sentiment.

For the finishing touch, I added some rainbow colored gems!

The next step was to attach my heart background to a black card base with liquid glue.

Hopping Hamsters

Well hey there, crafty friend! Today I’m sharing this fun rainbow card I made using the Hooray Hamster stamp set!

To make this card, I die cut the Scattered Hearts Cover Plate on a piece of white cardstock.  Once cut, I grabbed another piece of white cardstock and placed it underneath my die cut piece.  Then, I blended a rainbow with Maker Forte Flamingo, Yellowstone, and Neon Lights inks.  This gives me TWO backgrounds at once!

Then, I was ready for my hamsters!  I stamped them with black ink and then colored them in with Copic markers.  I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.For my sentiments, I grabbed my Brighter Days Sentiment Cards and trimmed out 2 sentiments.

The next step was to attach my heart background to a white card base with liquid glue.  For my hamsters and sentiments, I propped them up with 3D foam squares and strips.

Stay tuned for a card using the extra rainbow background NEXT WEEK!  Woot woot!

Ex Libris Birdcages

Oh my gosh! I love the new Lovebirds Stamp Set, don’t you?! The whole Ex Libris Collection is finally available for purchase now! Woot woot!

Although I ADORE the new ink colors, I am a Party Collection girl myself! So, I wanted to showcase this stamp set using a Party rainbow blended background. I blended Party Dress, Limoncello, and Fiesta Blue to create a gorgeous rainbow background. I also spritzed the background with water to create some texture!

Once I had my background blended, I stamped my birdcages and sentiment straight onto my background. Then, I used a ruler and black Copic pen to draw lines from my birdcages to the top of the card.

DIY Mini Journal with 6×6 Patterned Ppaer

Heya, friends! Are you getting excited that it’s ALMOST time to get your new Catherine Pooler goodies?!

I’m sharing tons of inspiration from the Lovebirds Bundle!

I have step-by-step instructions on creating this mini journal.. so read on!

I’m starting out with my uber-professional looking template! 😉
1. Cut a piece of white cardstock down to 4.75″ x 7.25″.
2. Score it at 3.5″ and 3.75″.
3. Round off your corners with a corner punch, if desired.

Grab your patterned paper – I’m using the new Twilight Reading Paper Pack.
4. Cut down smaller pieces of cardstock that are approximately .25″ less for each layer. I’m using the Scallops and Dots Dies and a paper trimmer.
5. If you rounded your edges on your white cardstock base, you’ll probably want to round these off as well. I’m only rounding the right corners.

6. Use a small hole punch or poker tool to create a small hole for a brad.
7. Place a brad in the hole, giving yourself room to wrap twine around a few times.

8. On the inner flap, tape a piece of twine that’s long enough to wrap around your mini journal 2-4 times, depending on what you want it to look like.

9. Glue a piece of patterned cardstock on the front flap to cover the tape and brad. My piece of paper is 3.25″ x 4.5″. I’m also using the same size and paper for the other flap.

I’m going to add a little more interest on the front of mine by stamping some birdcages from the Lovebirds stamp set with the new Apricot ink. Im going to trim that down and glue it to the front.

Now we’re ready to work on the inside!
10. Grab a piece of patterned paper and trim it down to 3.75″ x 2.5″.
11. Score at .5″ and 3.5″. Turn 90 degrees and score at .5″.

12. Use some scissors to cut triangles out of the flaps.

13. Use red tape to secure the pocket to your mini journal.

14. Grab some computer paper. Trim strips that are 8″ x 2.75″. Fold them in half and secure them together with a stapler. Stamp an image in the corner on one or all of the pages.
15. Use red tape to secure it to the inside of your journal.

16. Create some tags out of coordinating patterned paper and stick them in your pocket!

That’s it!

I hope you enjoyed this post and try to make your own mini journal!

Sweet Lovebirds

Hey friends! It’s that time again! A NEW RELEASE from Catherine Pooler is coming out!! Yippee!! And I get to share the Lovebirds Bundle with you! Plus, the NEW INKS! I’m SOOO in love with this release!

Today I’m sharing a card I made using the new Stitch Your Diamonds and Cross Your X’s Dies, the new Ginger, Apricot, and Terracotta Inks, the new Twilight Reading Paper Pack and the new Lovebirds Stamp Set!

To make this card, I used the Stitch Your Diamonds Die on white cardstock. Then, I ink blended it with Apricot, Ginger, and Terracotta inks. For my background, I used a piece of the Twilight Reading paper and die cut it with the Cross Your X’s Die. I layered them on top of each other and adhered them with liquid glue to my card base.

I stamped my Lovebirds and sentiment with black ink and then used Copic markers to color them in. I cut them out using the coordinating dies. I added some London Mix sequins to finish the card off!

Can you tell how much I love this release?! You can start shopping the New Release on Tues, April 5th if you’re a StampNation member! Everyone else gets to start shopping on Weds, April 6th!

Ex Libris Beautiful Birdcage

Hey friends! It’s that time again! A NEW RELEASE from Catherine Pooler is coming out!! Yippee!! And I get to share the Lovebirds Bundle with you! Plus, the NEW INKS! I’m SOOO in love with this release!

The first card I get to share with you showcase the new Twilight Reading Paper Pack, the new Apricot Ink, and the new Lovebirds Stamp Set!

I used the Circle Dies to cut out a circle in the bottom right portion of my patterned paper. I blended my circle cutout with the new Apricot ink. I trimmed down a piece of white cardstock and used my circle die to remove that section of my white strip. I stamped my sentiment from the Lovebirds stamp set in the open space on the left side.

I stamped my birdcage with black ink and then used a Copic marker to lightly color it in. I propped my patterned paper up with 3D foam tape to create more dimension. I added some London Mix sequins to finish the card off!

FREE Download: Kids’ Travel Play Food Kit

Hey friends! I have a different kind of post to share with you today! Spring Break is coming up and we have a 10 hour drive ahead of us! My little ones are 6 and 8 and need some car activities to keep them occupied. Finding unique travel toys for kids older than 3 seems to be quite the challenge!

So… I’ve created this Travel Size Play Food Kit for my kiddos using some crafty creativity! Want to make your own kit? I’ve got a FREE DOWNLOAD for you!

If you want to get notified of new posts in the future, I would LOVE it if you subscribed! I’m going to be doing some more DIY crafts for this trip coming up in the next few days!


Each kit contains 3 double-sided laminated “tables”, mini cutlery and dishes, and mini foods and drinks. (Anything mini is just THE CUTEST, isn’t it!?)

Here are the items you’ll need to make your own travel kits:

  • Mini food, drinks, dishes & cutlery- I got these.
  • Plastic compartment container – Such as these.
  • A laminator – the best (and cheapest!) is this one.
  • Laminating pouches – I like to have a variety on hand at all time, so I have this kit.
  • A printer – I have used this HP 8600 printer for the last 15 years! It is my absolute fav and prints up to 100# cardstock!!!
  • Cardstock or paper – I prefer cardstock for this project so that you can print on both sides. But you could use 8.5″x11″ computer paper and then put them back to back in your laminating pouch.
  • Printable Table settings – that’s where I’ve got your FREE DOWNLOAD! Click on the download button:

Instructions:
1. Gather all your supplies.
2. Print your table settings from your FREE DOWNLOAD. The instructions for printing are in your download.
3. Laminate your table settings to make them more durable and pretty!
3. Place all your supplies in your organizer (or let the kids help!)
4. ENJOY with your kiddos!

Here’s what they look like when they’re closed up! So portable and easy to travel with! (And, obviously, SO CUTE!)

There are some affiliate links in this post! I’d be so happy if you used them to make this project – it doesn’t cost you anything, but it allows me to get a small percentage of funds to help me make more stuff to share with you! THANK YOU!

Sneak Peek: Just Plain FABULOUS!

Celebrate Spring Release – Coming Soon!

The Celebrate Spring Release is TOTALLY FABULOUS!

I’ve made this card using the brand new Flower Power Slimline Die and the Just Plain Fabulous Stamp Set, plus the Fabulous Word Die.

To make this card, I cut 4 of the Fabulous Word Die out of white cardstock.

I glued each of them on top of one another. Then I dabbed the die cut onto a Embossing Ink. I added Glitz Wow! Embossing Powder to it and then used a heat tool to melt the powder.

I ink blended Orange Peel, Pink Champagne, and Tranquil onto a piece of white cardstock. I die cut a panel using the Flower Power Slimline Die and then cut it down to fit onto my blended panel. I also die a Nested Stitched Heart out.

I used glue and 3D foam squares to adhere my card to my card base.

Hope Your Day is a Real Treat!

I am SOOOO freakin’ excited to be part of the Time for Tea Designs design team!!

Are these Enjoy the Little Things and Cafe Critters stamp sets just the CUTEST!?  Eek!  They look so good mix and matched, too!

For this card, I blended a background using Catherine Pooler’s Minted, In the Park, and Deck the Halls inks.  I spritzed it with water and also flicked a bit of white paint on it.

While waiting for that to dry, I cut a panel of white cardstock for the ground.  I used the Tiled Wall Stencil and Twilight ink to create little pavestones.

Next, I stamped my images from the Enjoy the Little Things and Cafe Critters stamp sets, colored them with Copic markers, and then cut them out using the coordinating dies.

Finally, I assembled my card using liquid glue and 3D foam squares.

Heffy Doodle and Time for Tea Collaboration Blog Hop

Welcome to the Heffy Doodle and Time for Tea Collaboration Blog Hop!
Design Team members from both companies are sharing inspiration using products from both companies!

I’m so excited to share this card I made with you! I absolutely adore both of these companies’ products! They work SO WELL together! Can you guess which products are from which company? Read on to see!

To create my super vibrant background, I am blending Sixteen Candles, Pixie Dust and Grape Crush through the Time for Tea Tiled Wall Stencil. Once that’s done, I am going to very gently go over the entire background with a blending brush that has leftover Sixteen Candles ink on it.

To create the forefront of my scene, I am using the leaves from the Heffy Doodle Tree-mendous Peekaboo Tree Die and blending Melon Ice and Lime Rickey onto my cutout. For the dirt hill, I am using the Heffy Doodle Slimline Scenery Dies and blending Sand Castle and Over Coffee ink onto it. I am then splattering some white acrylic paint mixed with water using a small paintbrush. I’ve also used the Silver Linings Border Dies to create some clouds for the top portion of my scene and have left them white.

Now I’m ready to stamp my little cuties! I am grabbing the Heffy Doodle Hello Squeakheart Stamp Set and the Time for Tea Cafe Critters Stamp Set. I’m coloring them with my Copic markers using purples, greens, and yellows.

I’ve cut out the word “ENJOY” using the Heffy Doodle Stitched Alphabetters Dies and used Melon Ice and Lime Rickey to color them. Once I’ve cut my stamped images out using the coordinating dies, I’m ready to start assembling my card! I’m using Heffy Doodle’s Deep Foam Tape and Glubert Glue. I’m also creating one last sentiment by stamping the word “SQUEAKHEART” from the Hello Squeakheart stamp set on black cardstock with Versamark watermark ink. Then, I’m applying white embossing powder to it and cutting the sentiment into a ribbon using my scissors.

And, voila! Don’t those little cuties look so cute?! 🙂

That’s it for me on this Hop! I hope you enjoyed my card and all the love I put into it!

GIVEAWAY INFO: To be entered to win the giveaway, all you need to do is comment at each stop along the Blog Hop!

To shop with my affiliate link and help me earn a little extra cash (at no cost to you) to buy more crafty goodies to share more projects with you, click here or use the links in this post!

Today, I’m making a card with my leftover piece from yesterday’s card. If you missed my post yesterday, you can see it here. I’m using the Just Roll With It Collection for this release!

I ran a slimline card front through my die cutting machine with the Plant Stand Slimline Die. I placed the die cut card front on top of another slimline card front. Then, I blended Limoncello, Glitz, Party Dress, Pucker Up and Flirty Fuschia inks onto both card fronts. This gives me 2 different card fronts to use!

Next, I stamped my kitty from the Just Roll With It stamp set and then colored her with Copic markers. I also stamped my sentiments on black cardstock nd then used white embossing powder on them. I used the Nested Stitched Heart Dies and then trimmed off one edge of the heart and propped it up with foam squares.

Thank you so much for hanging out with me today! I can’t wait to share more cards with you from this collection!

Catherine Pooler Birthday Instahop!

🎉SURPRISE BIRTHDAY HOP!!🎉 

Happy Birthday, Catherine!!

A group of us DT members have gotten together to throw a surprise birthday hop for Catherine on Instagram! Come join in to wish Catherine a Happy Birthday!

Here is the card I made for the Hop! What better way to celebrate your birthday than with a skiing bunny friend?!

To create this card, I am starting with the Scallops and Dots Dies. To create my bunny slope, I’m using just part of one of the Nested Stitched Heart Dies. (Sneaky, huh?! But it makes a great ski slope!)

For my background, I am blending It’s a Girl and Party Dress.

Next, I’m going to grab my circle Acrylic Stamping Block and some Versamark Watermark ink. After placing 3 snowflake stamps from the Bunny Slopes stamp set on my block, I can stamp the snowflakes all around the background. Using the stamping block makes the process much faster than using my MISTI and constantly moving my stamps around!

Once all my snowflakes are stamped, I can sprinkle some Halo WOW! Embossing Powder onto my stamped snowflakes and then melt the embossing powder with my heat tool.

For my snow slope, I’m covering the entire thing with Versamark Watermark ink and then applying my embossing powder and heating it with my heat tool. I just LOVE the sparkly Halo WOW! Embossing Powder!!

I’ve stamped my images from the Bunny Slopes Stamp Set on Premium White Cardstock and now I’m ready to color them with Copic markers! This cardstock is so creamy and smooth and works amazingly with alcohol markers!

Once I’ve cut my images out with the coordinating dies, I’m ready to assemble my card using 3D foam squares and liquid glue!

Ooh La La – C’est Magnifique!

My card features the Springtime in Paris Collection!

To create my gorgeously ink blended background, I masked off the edges of my card with Heffy Doodle Memo Tape and then I used the NEW REFRESHED Sixteen Candles and Oh Boy! inks. I, then, spritzed the background with water.

I die cut the new Ooh Lala Die out of black cardstock.

I also stamped and colored images from the new Dreaming of France Stamp Set and the coordinating dies. For my finishing touch, I added some Paris Sequins and some Sweet Twist Twine.

Cute Critter Couples

Hello Heffy Doodle friends!  I hope your week is off to a great start!  I must be getting into the Valentine’s Day state of mind!  I had this idea of creating a card with a whole bunch of critters celebrating their love and I’m so excited about the way it turned out!  I had to mix and match a LOT of stamp sets, but it was definitely worth it!

For my critters and their accessories, I used:  Quill You Be Mine, Hello Squeakheart, Nuts About You, Mole Lotta Love, and Beary Big Heart.

I colored all my little cuties with Copic markers.

To create my card base and frame, I used the Slimeline Quartet Dies.

To create some color on my background and frame, I blended Catherine Pooler’s It’s a Girl, Samba, Oh Boy, and Something Borrowed inks.  I also spritzed my blue background with water to create some splatters.

For my grass, I used the Grassy Lass Dies and blended them with Melon Ice and Garden Party.

Finally, I assembled the card and add a few sequins for some more pizzazz!  

Aren’t those cute critter couples just so stinkin’ adorable??

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  I hope you have a wonderful rest of your week!

Interactive Slider Baby Shower Card

Well hey there, crafty friends!  I sure hope you had a wonderful Christmas!  Did you get any crafty goodies?!  I hope so!!

Today, I’m sharing a Baby Shower card!  I love interactive cards and the Slider Pop-up Dies make it so easy to make one quickly!

To create this card, I have blended some gorgeous Catherine Pooler blues on my cutouts from the Slider Pop-up Dies . Next, I’m spritzing the ink with water.

I’ve stamped my images from the Beary Big Heart and Chimply the Best stamp sets.  Now, I’m ready to start coloring the images with Copic markers!

To create my leaves, I am using both the Amazonian Leaves and Forest Leaves Dies.  To color the leaves, I used Limoncello and Tiara inks.  I am gluing my leaves, sequins, and monkey on using Glubert Glue.

Using the Classic Sentiments stamp set and the Chimply the Best stamp set, I’ve created my sentiment on a piece of white cardstock. 

Voila!  So easy and fun!  Plus, it will make a great Baby Shower card that is sure to be gushed over!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!  I hope you’ve enjoyed this post as much as I’ve enjoyed sharing it with you!!  Xx, Amanda

Heffy Doodle and Newton’s Nook Designs Collaboration Blog Hop

Welcome to the Heffy Doodle and Newton’s Nook Designs Collaboration Blog Hop!
Design Team members from both companies are sharing inspiration using products from both companies! I am super excited to share my card with you!

To create this card, I’m starting with the Heffy Doodle Slimline Mini Mails Die and a piece of white cardstock trimmed to slimline size (3.5″x8.5″).

Next, I am stamping my images from the Newton’s Nook All About for Christmas stamp set and the Heffy Doodle Santa’s Village stamp set with the Maker Forte ReMARKable Eclipse Black ink. This is my favorite alcohol-friendly black ink!

Now, onto coloring my adorable images with Copic markers!

For my background, I’m blending Catherine Pooler’s Chiffon, Maker Forte’s Yellowstone, Bubblegum, and Coral Keys inks.

To create my hill and slider element, I’m using the Heffy Doodle Slimline Scenery Dies and the Straight Slider Dies. To create a longer slider, I’m die cutting 2 of the sliders right next to each other.

Using Deep Foam tape, I’m propping up my hill to give me room for a button to use as my sliding element. After attaching my trains to the buttons, I can start assembling the rest of the card using 3D foam squares and glue!

Here’s another photo of the finished card and some close-ups!

And that’s it for my card!! I hope you enjoyed my part in the Blog Hop!
