Hello, friends! Happy Monday. I hope you're having a great day wherever you are.

Crazy that we're already over halfway through January! This month has been crazy. I started my final semester of college, and it's already insane. We're working on a packaging project, and it's so much fun, but it's also very stressful. I can't say I'm not ready to be done in May, I'm a little overwhelmed. Regardless, this month has flown by. It's almost February, which means Valentine's Day!

Today I have a card for you that I am very excited about! I created this 3D effect by layering my Stitched Dot Heart die! Check out the full recipe below. Have a wonderful day and a wonderful rest of the week!

Your Love is Electric!

Hello, everyone! Jillian here with a Valentine card. It's insane that's almost 2019. I'm absolutely obsessed with this new collection. The Light Bulb Die Set is just so much fun to play around with, not just for Valentine's Day but for any occasion. AND I designed it so our Grad caps  (Grad Cap Trio and Mini Grad Cap Die fit them too!) I love the fun red of the Circuit Board Background Builder Cling Stamp too, and this stamps so crisp and clear, especially using Catherine Pooler inks! View the whole AJVD recipe below.

This card was so much fun to create! I played around with the Ranger Studio 490 Embossing Paste in Black to create a tone-on-tone background that turned out really, really gorgeous. I also used our Poinsettia Greetings and some Catherine Pooler Inks to watercolor the poinsettia. And, as I felt I needed an element to pull it all together, I decided to play with our Mermaid Bubbles! These are soooo fun and perfect to add on to every project!

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!
