These were so much fun to make. I love this style so much, personally, and I was delighted when someone suggested a tutorial for Christmas cards.

Hope you’ll celebrate the joys of the season with me today on YouTube, no matter the date! Happy crafting! xoxo

DIY Washi Tape Card & Printable!

I was so excited about this card! It really validated the years (and YEARS!) or hoarding washi tape! It was so easy and looks fabulous – that’s my favorite combo!

Check out my YouTube video about how to make darling backgrounds with washi tape.

Here is the printable too, if you’d like to make this same card (I printed this lovely retro lady 3 inches tall).

Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante

Ok. You ever have that paper collection that you are so excited to buy, but then are terrified to use it? It’s just so beautiful and perfect, you fear “messing it up” by actually crafting with the paper you purchased it for? Yeah. The Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante collection was one of those for me.

This paper pad is YEARS old and has been gracefully sitting in my paper closet looking pretty. Every once in awhile I would thumb through it (careful not to bend or crease even the cover) and then sigh happily and put it away again.

This week was the time. I just couldn’t hold back any more. But I promised myself that I would use as much as humanly possible, so I wouldn’t feel like any single page or tag was left behind. I think I did pretty well. I ended up using the collection to make 10 scrapbook layouts and 5 fancy cards.

I love them all so very much, and hope you enjoy these papery treasures too.

You can still find this discontinued collection on places like Amazon, but be warned – it has a hefty price tag. If you’ve got the coin though, trust me when I say, you won’t regret it. This paper collection truly is gorgeous. Link for the paper pad.

I also sell these finished 12×12 pages and greeting cards in my eBay shop, so feel free to check those out as well. They are all looking for a good home and ready to ship!

Which paper collection did you hang on to for (maybe) too long? Did you ever use it, or do you just glance longingly at it every once in awhile as you craft with other paper pads?

I’d love to share in your paper romance too, so please keep in touch and drop me a comment.

Happy crafting! xoxo
