Merry Mermaid Christmas!

Hello, everyone! Jillian here. So, today I have a super adorable card that I absolutely love! 

If you know me, you know that I'm obsessed with any and all things mermaid. Ariel has been my favorite Disney Princess since I can remember, and I've always been fascinated by all things under the sea! I think our nautical collection and the mermaid stuff from that are definitely some of my favorite sets I've designed. And who says you can only use that collection in the summer? Today I have an adorable Christmas card using the Sea Shells & Mermaid Tail die set. I used the Scattered Circles Strip Die to create the snowflakes. The AJVD products used are below!

Hello, everyone! Jillian here. Today's card is so fun. Christmas is just around the corner, and this card was made using our new Christmas Quilt Quotes stamp set. It's brand new and here just in time for Christmas! 

This card is extremely simple but still encapsulates the Christmas spirit. All AJVD products are used down below.

Embossing Paste Technique

Hello, everyone! Jillian here. Today I'm here with a really cool technique I'm excited to share with you!

I decided to play with some Studio 490 Embossing Paste by Wendy Vecchi. I love this product, it's so much fun and I could just play with it all day! I created a video showing you how you can create gorgeous backgrounds/mixed media projects using the embossing paste along with Catherine Pooler inks (which you all know are my favorite, tried and true inks! The best on the market, in my opinion).  The paste is available in an array of colors, but I used the white and added in the inks to create vibrant, beautiful colors. I also created a card using the technique. Check it out below and don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel if you enjoyed and want to see more videos! All AJVD products will be below.

It coordinates so well with our Get Well Wishes which was also designed not only for illness but for ALL types of Cancer FIGHTERS and HEROES. You're all inspirations and you're in our thoughts and prayers every single day!

So how fun is this Witch Bookmark? I'm absolutely obsessed with reading, and a cute bookmark is always a plus, right? And since we're heading into Halloween season, there's nothing more perfect than a witch bookmark!

Started with Neenah Solar White card stock and stamped my sentiment from Witch Book? Stamp Set in Orange Twist Catherine Pooler Ink.  Using CP Ink in Midnight, I stamped the witch legs from the same stamp set. I colored them with Tombow Recycled Colored Pencils available in my online store!
Love the Gold Metallic Stars on her boots!
Stamped using Orange Twist and my Dainty Dots Background Builder stamp to create a pattern on the cup from my Coffee, Tea and Me die set.
Stamped the sentiment from the But First Coffee Stamp set in Midnight and I did add a second cup to the back side for stability when in use.
That purple Stitched 3D Tassel is perfect to mark your spot!
