Hi Crafty Friends! It’s Lisa here today from Happy Paper & Ink to share a new Project Life card that I created. I am doing some preparation for my December Daily album, so that is what inspired me to create this card.
For this card, I started with Pink Paislee Merry & Bright 6×6 paper pad. I cut a tag and a 4×6 project life card from the paper pad. I then cut strips of paper for the side border to add some interest. I cut a snowflake tag on white and red paper using my Silhouette Cameo. I also cut the title using gold glitter vinyl and my Silhouette Cameo for the title “Hello Santa”. I doodled around all the edges with a black 0.8 American Crafts Black Pen and inked with black Memento Ink.
To finish off the card, I used The Crafty Pickle’s Black & White Color Pop Flair and applied it to the top of the snowflake tag. I added some sequins to the corner of the card from The Crafty Pickle. Adding any of the Relish Mixes to your layout or cards gives a fun, sparkly and thin embellishment. These come in all colors, I used the Magical Mouse mix for this card. I layered the sequins and put red glitter stickle dots on top of some of the sequins to change the look a little. And finally, I tied a bow at the top of the snowflake tag to tie it all together!
I hope you enjoyed my Project Life card & are inspired. Look for some more blog posts showing my December Daily in the future!
Thanks for looking & Happy Crafting!
Hi Friends & Happy Tuesday!
It’s Lisa here today to share this week’s planner layout. Planners are on trend in the Paper crafting community. The Crafty Pickle’s shop will be opening back up soon. Be sure to check out all of the planner goodies in The Crafty Pickle’s new inventory. It’s a planner’s dream!!
For this layout, I was inspired by the new goodies in The Craft Pickle Shop. I covered all of the lines on the page using The Crafty Pickle’s thin glitter Washi Tape. This defines the boxes and makes it fun!! The Crafty Pickle just introduced the Sticky Pickle Spot Stickers. These are so awesome to accent important appointments or to just decorate with. They come in asterisks, stars, hearts and circles.
Adding any of the Relish Mixes to your planner gives a fun, sparkly and thin embellishment. These come in all colors, I used the Rock Candy Mix and are super easy to attach. I used a dot of Glossy Accents to attach them. Who doesn’t love sequins???!!!
I used the Project Life Everyday Line paper pad & cardstock stickers to accent my layout. I cut triangles & rectangles to accent the planner boxes which adds some color and texture to the pages.
I also attached a “This Month” planner clip! The Crafty Pickle has come out with personalized clips that are adorable!! I used the planner clip to “bookmark” my week. That makes it super easy to grab my week!

Hi there Crafty friends, it’s Lisa here today to show you a card I created for The Crafty Pickle.
For this card I used the Close To My Heart Thriller set. To obtain the “grunge” look for the background, I used Ranger’s Alcohol Ink and the Alcohol Blending solution. I mixed these together on a blending sponge and made quick dabs all over the cardstock. Once the cardstock was covered in color, I added the blending solution to the sponge and made quick dabs all over the cardstock. This blended all of the ink and made the colors look more cohesive. Once I achieved the look I was aiming for, I then sprayed the cardstock with the Black Soot Distress Spray to darken up the background a bit.
I stamped the sentiment “scary Halloween to you” on cardstock that I distressed with the Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. To finish the card up, I added a few sequins to the sentiment and the background from the Crafty Pickle Relish Mix.
I hope you enjoyed looking at my card, as soon as the Crafty Pickle shop reopens, be sure to take a peek at all the awesome Relish Mixes and Flairs to add fun to your projects.
Happy Hump Day!!!

My name is Joann Lopez. I am a wife of 7 years to a wonderful man and a mother to 2 little ones, a 4 year old boy and a 10 month baby girl. I found my love for paper crafts when my husband bought me my first cricut. It was our 1 year anniversary (gift idea was paper for 1st year of marriage) and he totally surprised me with it (super thoughtful). Since then I have been addicted to cricut everything and anything. I was a CTMH consultant about a 2 years ago. I am new to using flair but really enjoying it.
I can’t wait to share these girls talent with you all!

You can find Julie’s blog HERE.
My name is Julia, I’m 23 and I’m from Russia. I have been scrapbooking for about three years. At the begining I did only greeting cards, but now I enjoy making Layouts, mini-albums, and other scrapbook projects. I was designing for different russian Challenge Blogs. I like to watch at my progress and I want to develope my skills more and more. I think my style is bright, clean and light… with a little bit of splashes ( though my first projects at the beginning of my fascination with scrapbooking were in vintage style) Last year I became a big fan of the CAS style in cardmaking. I’m so excited to be the part of the Crafty Pickle Design Team and I’m ready to create many interesting projects and share it with people!
You can find Kristin’s blog HERE.
I’m married to my hubby of twenty five years, I have two rowdy boys ages 8 and 16 years old and I love to read other peoples blogs, go on adventures, pin stuff on pinterest, cook, craft, and am a reality show junkie. I ‘m a sucker for a little romance or a sappy chick flick. I would say my scrapbooking style would be “organized chaos”. And this hobby has become a way for me to connect with others, express myself, preserve memories and relax with my friends
I will be back tomorrow to introduce you to more talented ladies!

My name is Cathy and I have been scrapping since 2009, after my son was born. I am a graphic designer and illustrator by trade, though I am currently working as a floral designer. I absolutely love crafting in every form and I honestly don’t know what I would do if I wasn’t creating! I love using new and different embellishments in my scrapbooking and am always eager to expand my scrappy knowledge. For me my scrapbook pages are ways to preserve my family memories, but they are also little mini works of art, and I use my scrapbooking to express myself artistically.
I can’t wait to see what creative things these two have in store for us! See you back tomorrow for two more close ups!
