List It Yourself Blog Hop

Friday, March 1st, 2013

Hop over to Monika‘s, Alexandra‘s and Britta‘s blogs for a fabulous introduction to my new stamp set: List It Yourself. You will get a huge amount of eye candy as well as 3 chances to win!

Journaling Mates - List It Yourself

This stamp set includes 21 stamps in total, as follows: 8 memory keeping phrases stamps, 2 tab stamps, 4 element stamps, 4 list stamps, 1 journaling box frame stamp and 2 additional box frame organizers stamps.

Mix and match these stamps to create awesome, custom-made journaling spots for your memory-keeping projects as well as to get organized with your day-to-day tasks.

The frame stamp measure just under 3″ by 4″, to fit pre-made 3″ by 4″ journaling cards.

Use the list stamps to revamp your plain post-it notes and to-do lists. It is also perfect for stamping in your journals.

Made in the U.S.A.

NOTE: To fit all those great stamps (21!!!) onto one stamp set, the journaling box frame isn’t fully backed. To make sure you stamp it perfectly on your project, simply toss it a few times on a scratch paper and it’ll conform to its original shape. Then put your acrylic block on it and lift it. Apply ink, and stamp away. You can always test-stamp on a scratch paper, just to make sure it’s perfectly straight each time.

Free Printable – Hello Fall Journaling Cards

Friday, September 7th, 2012

PREVIEW - Fall Journaling Labels
Today I am sharing a set of FREE ‘Hello Fall’ journaling cards with you guys (for personal use only).

I am a peculiar girl. Although my birthday (and my husband’s and 3 sisters’ b-day) falls in the fall, I don’t like it. For me it symbolizes the end of summer, which is my favorite season. Lucky for me, in California, the change of weather is slight enough to provide a segue to winter, which I especially dislike. I’m a sunshine kind of person.

However, that doesn’t mean, by any way, that I do not love journaling about the change of seasons and what it means to me and my dear ones. I hope you do too.

To download it simply click on the image (or the link) and if it doesn’t work try to right-click on it and opt for the “save target as…” option (it may be phrased a bit differently on different operating systems – but do NOT opt for the “save image as” option, as you will get the low resolution tiny preview image).

I hope you like it and have lots and lots and lots of fun with it.

Creative Jumpstarts || 7 Creative Things To Do When You Feel Uninspired

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

Seven Creative Jumpstarts

If you like it

I often find myself wanting to do something creative but feeling a bit uninspired, as if I’ve lost my creative mojo. I know I want to experiment with new products or to try new techniques but I can’t think of a solid idea for a specific project.

On these occasions I try to make mini, one-step projects that are still creative but do not require any pre-planning.

Many times these itsy bitsy pieces spark my creative spirit and bring back my mojo. On other times, I still have something I can use later on, when I have a solid idea but less time…

Here are some of the stuff I do:

Watercolor Stamped BackgroundsWatercolor stamped backgrounds.
I love the watercolor look that seems to appear everywhere on the creative-web-sphere. The thing is that watercoloring takes time, even for the most basic applications (such as mine). For one thing, post cleanup is required. Plus you have to get water and blotting paper and special watercolor paper…

Do you see my point?

Therefore, I find these inspiration-twilight-zones perfect for a mini watercolor project. Simply stamp a background stamp with a water-resistant ink (such as Stazon) on watercolor paper and color away. Later you can use it as an element on a page or a card. Add some black details with a broad-tip pen for a bolder look.


Stamp and cut.Stamp and cut.
This one is a spin on watercoloring a stamped piece, for times you don’t feel motivated to break out the watercolors, water, brushes, etc.

For that mini micro project you only need one ink pad, some cute, easy-to-cut stamps and any paper.

When I shop for new stamps I always think of images I can stamp, cut and stow for later use… When the time comes to make an actual card, scrapbook layout, mini album or even to wrap up a gift – you would LOVE to have that stash of pre-cut images to use in a snap.

After all, by the time you get really inspired, you want to use your precious time for designing cool stuff, not on technicalities, right!?


Sew random paper stripsSew random paper strips.
This creative jumpstart performs a double duty: (1) It’s easy and does not require ANY pre-planning; (b) It’s an AWESOME way to use your scraps and if you are anything like me, you have a ton of them.

I am not very good with the sewing machine (= that’s the understatement of the year). That humble stack of randomly sewn pieces is the combined effort of several mini-sewing-sessions, with months apart… Having said that, I really love the machine-stitched look. I think that it adds a new dimension and texture to any project, not to mention a more finished look.

The great thing about machine stitched elements is that you can’t tell when they were carefully sewn on the project or added later as an afterthought… Which is why I think it’s so great to simply stitch random pieces of paper together. The time will come when those sewn panels and pockets and strips will perform their duty, honorably, on a future project.

Make your own journaling spots.Make your own journaling spots.
This is another great example of something small that you can do that gives you an opportunity to experiment with different techniques and stamps and can be very useful in the future.

Either punch or die-cut your journaling spots in advance or stamp them first and cut around the stamp image. Then simply play with them => Add distress inks and stains, mist them, stamp on them, doodle, use letter and word stickers on them.

Just have fun and experiment and get as messy or as tidy as you want.

Finally, store them with the rest of your stash for later use.


Cut pre-made journaling spots.Cut pre-made journaling spots.
OR you can simply print one of my MANY free printable journaling spots, cut them and stash them in an old strawberries container, just like I do… [see picture on the left]

You may also use cuter and more tightly closed containers, if you so wish.

I’m not sure I should say so myself…, but they are so useful. I almost always use a piece on every scrapbooking project I make.

Having these ready-to-go pieces is making it much easier to use them. I don’t think I would ever start searching my file folders for a specific journaling labels set, then printing it and cutting it – all just for a specific journaling spot on a specific page of a specific project. I don’t think so.

Pre-stamp cards.Pre-stamp cards.
I am notorious for buying stamps just because they look cute. I admit it. I used to get them and not be exactly sure what to do with them. Oops.

That was before I decided to simply use them. Duh. I just stamp them on plain card-bases and set it aside until my creative mojo strikes or until I need a quick card and have no time to make it. Whichever comes first. Guess what comes first more often…

Sometimes I just add the cute image to the card base (as you can see on the right) and sometimes I stamp on a 5½” panel that I can add to a card later (as you can see on the left), with or without foam adhesive. Sometimes I also add Stickles, because I’m feeling extra sassy…, but shhh, please don’t tell.

It was very smart of me to use a limited edition stamp set that isn’t available anymore…

Die cut and stamp.Die cut and stamp.
To finish up, I have another spin on the stamp-and-cut suggestion. Wait for it… it’s a die-cut-and-stamp suggestion. Did I tell you how ‘smart’ I am feeling today? Oh, I just did. Okay.

Many brands offer combinations of stamp sets with matching dies. These are perfect for creating mini professionally-looking embellishments that you can use in so many different ways and on so many different projects. You only need a one-time investment in the dies and stamps set and that’s it. Each additional die-cut embellishment you create is practically free.

Make as many as you need, at any color combination you love at the moment or that suits your stash of paper/cardstock/printed photos…
