Snowy Night Glittery Shaker Card by JJ Bolton

Hello everyone! We have another guest today! One thing I love about JJ Bolton is that she is full of “surprises”! Her cards are created with fun techniques and clever uses of products, but there is usually something unexpected that makes me smile. On this card, that something is how JJ combined all four of our new sets together! I was all about critter stamps until JJ showed me what graphic stamps can do. I still collect cute images but my favorites are those ones that can be combined for endless possibilities. JJ’s product design reflects her creativity, do check them out! Now, take it away, JJ!

For You Wooden Gift Box

Hello everyone! Today’s project was also published in Paper Crafts Holiday Cards & More Vol.8. Here’s the link to a digital sneak peak of the issue. I bought a few wooden boxes for $1 each at Michael’s and thought it would be fun to customize them with some paper and stamps. One thing I learned from this project: my trusty Versafine inks will bleed on wood. I have had better luck with VersaMagic inks.
