Steampunk Butterflies, Light Bulbs, and More‏

New Goodies!

Happy Saturday everyone!
We're heating things up with some Steamy new goodies in the shop. A few of these were customer requests (you know who you are!), so I hope you enjoy! I'm especially loving the Light Bulbs! Perfect for those bright ideas...

Inspiration By Monica Downing!

I've shared this fantastic piece by Monica before, however it was definitely worth repeating. The Steampunk Heart used below, is much like some of the new goodies!

Inspiration By Linda Cain!

Another Steampunk favorite is this Stand Up Cameo Woman by Design Team Member Linda Cain. You can see why I had to design more awesome Steampunk shapes. Such inspiration!

Inspiration by Diana Darden!

This sweet Tea Cup is by Diana Darden. I love the layered collage she added. The patterns are incredible! 

Inspiration By Gerri Herbst!
Design Team member Gerri Herbst has won my heart with this "temptation" piece. The main image is from the Medieval Magick Collage Sheet. She also used our Cross Cut Outs, Small Heart Background Stencil, German Dresden, and Dove Cut Outs.

Inspiration By Linda O'Connor!
Linda O'Connor is at it again with another fantastic Santos Doll. This is St. Piran, Patron Saint of Tin Miners. You can read more about this amazing piece and find more photos on Linda's Blog here.

Just a reminder, Merfolk are due July 14th. You can read the full information HERE!
This stunning mermaid is by our youngest swapper yet. Zoe Matthews is just nine years old. You would never know it from her awesome doll. How cool is that!
The Merfolk have begun to arrive. You can check them out on Facebook or on Pinterest. Lots more to come!

New Collage Sheets, Serengeti Collection, and More‏

New Goodies!

Happy Saturday everyone!
We have some wonderful new goodies in the shop. The FABULOUS new 7 Gypsies Serengeti collection (Safari anyone!), 9 stunning Collage Sheets, and several other goodies, a few of which have been customer requests! In honor of the new Collage Sheets, the ENTIRE Collage Sheet section is on sale. I didn't realize until I put the goods on sale that we have over 800 different Collage Sheets! Wow!

Nicho Inspiration by Diana!

We have several new Metal Nichos in the shop and a restock of a few others. The beauties below are by Diana Darden. I love how even though they are the same style, Diana made them both so beautifully different.

Inspiration By Kimberly Heil!

Last week we were celebrating our new Frida Kahlo Shrine Kits, so why not keep the Frida love going. This lovely Angel is by Kimberly Heil. The cool Frida Head is from the Fairy Paper Cuts set. I adore the bright colors Kimberly picked, perfect for Miss Kahlo!

Inspiration By Tracy Delisle!
This lucky Hand Shrine is by Tracy Delisle! Anyone would be lucky to own such a stunning piece. Wonderful Tracy!

Scrap Pack Inspiration By Anna Hedberg!
I know how much you love our Scap Packs and several are back in stock, so grab em' while you can. I've seen some phenomenal art created with the packs, such as this amazing mixed media canvas by Anna Hedberg. She used tons of pieces in this one! (Windows, Shelf, Coffee Cups, Eiffel Tower, Bricks, Birdhouse, and more!). So creative Anna!

Scrap Pack Inspiration By Danene Grillo!
This fabulous piece is by Danene Grillo. "You Are Just My Type" is enjoying a cuppa coffee courtesy of a Scrap Pack goodie purchase! I'm envious of the wonderful layers and textures Danene creates in her art. Fabulous!

Merfolk Art Swap!

Just a reminder, Merfolk are due July 14th. You can read the full information  HERE!

Viva La Frida!

Happy Saturday everyone!
As several of you know, I love Frida Kahlo! Who doesn't right? I'm really excited to bring you these fabulous Frida Shrine Kits. Available in three different styles. I can't pick a favorite! I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with these artistic gals!


I just listed several new Metal Nichos and restocked a few others. These fabulous pieces are handmade and imported directly from Mexico. They are becoming more scarce, so grab these treasures while you can!

Mermaid Inspiration By Lynn Stevens!

These stunning Merfolk are by Design Team Member Lynn Stevens. Mermaids AND Steampunk? I'm in love. Check out her fabulous Octopus purse and the lovely little Steampunk Seahorse. The Propellers on the tails are absolutely genius. Awesome Lynn!

Inspiration By Gerri Herbst!
This lovely fresh green card was created by Design Team Member Gerri Herbst! I love how Gerri framed the Vintage Glass Negative Gal with the Film Strip Cut Out. A perfect fit!

Inspiration By Tracy Delisle!
This Star Shrine Kit by Tracy Delisle is definitely shining bright. The texture is amazing and the hot air balloon with the word "discover" is so fitting. Beautiful Tracy!

Inspiration By Diana Darden!

I adore this creative take on our Victorian Torso Shrine Kit by Diana Darden. Especially because it's Frida! This piece has been sent to Brazil for an exhibit. Huge congrats Diana! Excellent Stencil work on the wings too!

Inspiration By Virginia Smith!
And last but definitely not least, a gorgeous "Compass Angel" Santos by Virginia Smith. I especially love all the stamping on this stunning piece, and the soft soothing colors. Beautifully done Virginia!

Mermaids Setting Sail‏

New Goodies + SALE!

Happy Saturday everyone!
So this week we are having a sail and a sale! I really wanted something fun to display my merfolk in, so I designed a Sailboat Kit! Once I was finished, I took it to Chris and said "Look honey, I made a boat!". Not something I get to say often! All of our Sand and Sea goodies are on sale (not sail) and since I added more cool charms, I decided to keep the Charm Section ON SALE for one more week too!

Ship Ahoy!

Seeing the Merfolk in the new Sailboat Kit makes me smile. I can't wait to art one of these up. When I do, I'm most definitely going to use the Large Wave Stencil Strips around the body of the boat. Too perfect. 

Mermaid Inspiration By Gerri Herbst!

These stunning Merfolk are by Design Team Member Gerri Herbst! I'm loving their tails and their wands. Awesome Gerri!

Crown Inspiration By Virginia Smith!

This awesome crown is by Virginia Smith! She even modeled it for us. Looking awesome Virginia!

Inspiration By Danene Grillo!

I'm loving this mixed media canvas by Danene Grillo. I just love the way she used our Dino Stencil. And that car is totally fabulous. Awesome Danene!

Inspiration By Diana Darden!
How lovely is this Tea Cup Fairy by Diana Darden? The colors, the quote, the spoon, the patterns, all so marvelous Diana!

Inspiration By Linda Cain!
This wonderful Mermaid Theatre is by Design Team Member Linda Cain. You can read more about her on Linda's blog here! I love that Linda is using her to store ocean treasures from past vacations!
