Graceful Peacock

Hello Everybody and Happy Monday!

Can y'all believe that it is finally less than 24 hours until HSN Craft Day? (Also known as, SARA TIME!!!) 😍 I know that this will probably come as nothing of a shock, but I *do* still have some samples that I haven't shared...are y'all sick of me yet? LOL. I'm having a really tough time choosing which one to post last before the shows start up! However...I did promise back when I shared my crazy orange peacock that I had also made a more traditional version. And, since this card was actually the very first one I created as a Design Team Member, it somehow seems fitting!

So...Sparkle On!!!

Opulent Decor Corner Dies

Hello Everybody and Happy Saturday!!!

We are getting soooo close to HSN's July 16th Craft Day that I just can't stand it! Today I wanted to share with y'all a card I made with some of the AMAZING Crafter's Companion Corner Dies! (Am I the only one who feels as if that term badly understates how versatile and awesome these things are? They do SO much more than corners!!!)

I made this card using the "Opulent Decor" Die Set, which is included in the big "Corner Border Die Set" item #593-186. And...that's right, sharp-eyed fellow paper hoarders! I drew a deep breath and took my scissors to a page from my beloved Nature's Garden Peony Paper Pad! (Not gonna lie, it hurt a little. 🤣) I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and hope you like it too!

Have a GREAT weekend, y'all!

Crafter's Companion Zodiac Dies

Hey, Baby - what's your sign? *giggle*

That's right, y'all! The highly anticipated Crafter's Companion Zodiac Dies are coming to HSN on July 16th!

I know soooo many people who have been wanting to get their hands on these since their debut in the UK, and now's your chance!

I have to confess, I know very little about astrology, so I did a lot of research before creating these samples in an attempt to make sure that the proper colors, gemstones, and elements were represented for each sign. I hope I did okay!

I'm posting just a few of my favorites here, but if you would like to see the complete collection, as well as the materials I used, all twelve signs are posted on my Moonlight Crafting Facebook page:

Happy stargazing!
