Control What You Can

Hello everyone! Jillian here. Today I have a Get Well card that I am super happy with. I absolutely love the way it turned out. The sentiment, "Control what you can, confront what you can't" is a lyric from my favorite band, The Maine, so I just had to use it on this card! Below is both the A Jillian Vance Design products I used, and the other supplies. 





Recipe: 
  • Tim Holtz Mini Distress Inks by Ranger
  • Wendy Vecchi Archival Ink by Ranger
  • Black Cardstock
  • White Cardstock
  • Blue Cardstock
  • Silver Embossing Ink by Ranger
I hope you're all having a beautiful day, and I hope this card could give you a little bit of inspiration!

Beauty of the Season

Hello, everyone! It may seem a little early to be thinking about Christmas, but I decided to create a Christmas card today! I love the way this turned out, and it didn't take me long at all! I used Ranger's Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo to transform the white sled into something that looks like wood grain. I'm obsessed! Below is the A Jillian Vance Design products I used along with the other products that I used to put the card together!

Happiness is....

Join us on the the Coffee Lover's Summer blog hop!

Today I have a fun coffee card to share, using the Grandpa's Glass: Cup of Love die!  Yay! I am obsessed with this die. There is also a new stamp set to match:  Cup of Love. It is so versatile and fun. Whether you choose to color with colored pencils, watercolor, replace each piece with different colors, there is so much you can do! I chose to watercolor with some Tim Holtz Mini Distress Inks, and here's what I came up with!

Cute shirt card just for Fathers Day! Hi, it's Jillian here today ~ finally after a few months of not posting!  School is out and I am not so stressed or busy. You don't need a fancy die to create this card.  Just a couple of my basic shape die sets and you have a darling shirt card for your Dad!
Cutting the Black card stock with the Basic Backdrop die for the bottom mat layer, as well as the Polka Dot Square Die to make the Lapels ~ cutting them diagonally.  Then I cut the striped paper with the Polka Dot  Backdrop and just a strip of cream cardstock for the placket.  I added the Bow Tie and buttons from the Buttons and Bows Die set.
Cream and Black sentiment layer and mat are from the Basic Backdrop and Polka Dot backdrop and the sentiment is from Fan{TACHE}tic Father's Day stamp set.
Thanks for stopping by today!
God Bless,
