3D projects, cards, Christmas, Classes, Personal Ramblings, Stampin' Up!, Videos


It’s been another busy year of crafting here. Thanks for following me along.

I thought I would take a few minutes and share my favourite projects from the past year. So come on a little journey with me. And click on the heading of the project to take you back to the original post and read more about them. Even catch the video of many of them.

Friendly Hello Fun Fold

I loved this gorgeous Friendly Hello Paper available for Sale-A-Bration in January. And this is great fold to show both sides of the gorgeous paper. (Must try that again).

Driving By Slider Card

This was a great stamp set to create a Slider card. But you can try this with any of your stamps. What about that Sunshine and Rainbows paper. So bright and Happy. 🙂

Waves of Inspiration (Moon Effect)

I have loved creating with the Waves of Inspiration stamp set and I was so excited when I discovered how to create the moon effect with the stamps.

Half Fold Let’s Set Sail

Let’s face it – Male cards are hard to make aren’t they?? We had a great Masculine Cards Class earlier in the year. The Let’s Set Sail stamps and punch were fun to use.

Wild and Sweet Watercolouring

The Wild and Sweet Stamp set was one of my top picks from the new catalogue in May. I don’t do a lot of colouring but I loved colouring this cute Koala. I shared some tips colouring this image in the video for this card.

Tunnel Cards with Hues of Happiness

The Hues of Happiness was another of my top picks from the catalogue. I think many people also loved this suite. The Tunnel cards I created with this has been very popular.

Winter Crafternoon with Cup of Tea Bundle

The most popular event this year with the Winter Crafternoon. It was such a fun time crafting together followed by a Devonshire Tea. Watch out for more events in the new year.

A Pocket Card with Cup of Tea Bundle

Christmas Lights Diagonal Fold

Another very popular Fun Fold from this year was the Diagonal Fold Card with the Christmas Lights Bundle. Lots of people have shared their versions with me which has been so great.

Hello Hippest Hippos Half Fold Easel Card

Is there a theme here with Fun Folds that are my favourite projects for the year. I do love a Fun Fold card. This one was the Half Fold Easel Card with the Hippest Hippos Stamp set for Sale-A-Bration.

Adventurous Journey for the adventurer

Another great stamp set for the Male cards or the adventurer is the Adventurous Journey stamp set. We had a great class with this stamp set.

Merriest Moments Candle for the 12 Days of Christmas series

It was great to be part of a collaboration to share you some fantastic Christmas projects. I kicked the 12 days series off with my project, A candle with the Merriest Moments stamps and dies. You just have to go back to that post and start the 12 Days of Christmas to check out all the projects.

I hope you have enjoyed looking back at these projects. I can’t wait to share more with you in the coming year.

To lots of creating in 2022. Come and join in with me and follow along.

This was the inspiration.

The colours from this that I could see where Petal Pink, Poppy Parade, Soft Succulent, Balmy Blue, Basic Gray.

I used all but the Balmy Blue. (It could even be more Smoky Slate).

This was the card I created. I share the making of it on an Instagram Reel yesterday if you caught it.

cards, Christmas, Personal Ramblings, Stampin' Up!


We had our JEN’s INK team get together on the weekend. It was nice to be able to be back together in person. It was a small gathering this time to get us back. That’s ok though. 🙂

I put together some card kits and the crafting challenge was to create a card with the pieces.

This was the card kit. This uses the Celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper (host paper pack).

There was extra white card and some Silver and Gold Foil. I had a number of inkpads, Ribbon, Christmas stamp sets and dies and embossing Folders. That was it!

This was my card. I trimmed down the piece of DSP. The sentiment from the Merriest Moments stamp set was stamped and diecut with the Designer Tags Dies. And I added a diecut snowflake from the Twinkling Lights Dies.

It was a fun exercise but I tell you it was hard.

What would you create with these limited supplies?

A Christmas card version for you today with the Ever Eden Specialty Paper. I paired it with the Merriest Moments stamp set. They work well together.

Add some Red Rhinestones for some sparkle.

This card really doesn’t take too long to put together. A little diecutting and a little sticking.

Hope you like it.

Have a great day,
