La-La Land Crafts July 2020 Club Kit Inspiration

Hi everyone! I'm here today with some La-La Land Crafts Club Kit inspiration.  


I truly have had a lot of fun with this kit. I mean, they are all fun, but the monkeys and the jeep just add a whole new layer to it. 

I didn't color the dies this time because I was short on time. I really do like the look of colored die cuts better. I think it brings the project to life.

La-La Land Crafts Masculine Card

For your convenience, I have placed links to the products used in this post. These links are affiliate links which means I receive credit for the products purchased (at no cost to you) when they are used.  

Hello friends! It's Inspiration Friday!! This week the La-La Land Crafts Design Team is making masculine cards. If you are anything like me, masculine cards are harder to make. I was excited for the challenge. 

Since I already had Fishing Luka and the truck from the May 2020 Club Kit colored, I wanted to use both of them on this card. I mean what's manlier than trucks and fishing?!? (If you'd like to see the coloring video of the truck continue to the end of this post)


I have really been getting into coloring my own backgrounds in the last couple of months. I know not everyone can or wants to color backgrounds. They take A LOT of time and A LOT of ink. I decided to put together a background using dies and stencils from La-La Land Crafts. Fishing Luka was the perfect image to do that with. 

I started with a basic white piece of cardstock. I used the Water Ripples Layering Stencil to create the water. Before I laid down the stencil, I covered the bottom half of the white cardstock with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I wanted the water to be two different colors. 

Once the water was done, I used the Summer is Here Layering Stencil to stencil in the clouds. By rotating the stencil a little each time, you can achieve clouds that are more natural-looking. 

Each die was cut out of white cardstock and then colored with Copic Markers. This really makes a big impact on the card. The background looks more hand-done when the dies are colored rather than cut out of colored cardstock.

La-La Land Crafts Christmas Shaker

For your convenience, I have placed links to the products used in this post. These links are affiliate links which means I receive credit for the products purchased (at no cost to you) when they are used. 

Here it is! My first Christmas card of the year. 

This week at La-La Land Crafts, we are celebrating Christmas in July. I always love making Christmas cards. My favorite ones are the cards with non-traditional Christmas colors. 


I am really liking black as a Christmas color. Black, white, gold...wouldn't that make a gorgeous Christmas color scheme? I think it would be very elegant. The Christmas Hodgepodge Paper Pack is perfect for nontraditionally colored cards. 

The Santa comes from the Dear Santa Clear Stamp Set. There is several adorable Santa's in this set. One of the Santa's is kicking back in a recliner. He's super cute. 

Copic Markers:
Skin: E04, E11, E00, E000, E0000 R22, R20
White: W5, W3, W1
Red: R89, R59, R57, R46
Gifts: 110, W8, W6, Y28, Y26, Y21

La-La Land Crafts Spinning Wheel Card

Hi everyone! It's Inspiration Friday for La-La Land Crafts. This week's theme is interactive cards. 

I wanted to make an interactive card that I haven't made before. I headed to my favorite place...Pinterest. I am never disappointed when I am searching for something there. 


I decided on a Spinning Wheel Card. I found an awesome tutorial done by Jennifer McGuire. You can check that out HERE. She has a ton of awesome video tutorials! 

Interactive cards take a bit more work than I usually like to do. Hahaha...I am a lazy crafter! I was happy to find that the card was not hard to do at all. 


Here's a short video of how the card works.

La-La Land Crafts You Are One Smart Cookie

For your convenience, I have placed links to the products used in this post. These links are affiliate links which means I receive credit for the products purchased (at no cost to you) when they are used.  

Hello! Happy Friday. I am hopping right back into crafting. It's been a busy week getting all these projects. I am enjoying the time in my craft room. 

Today I am sharing a card for La-La Land Crafts Team Friday. Our theme this week is Critter Fun. La-La Land Crafts has LOTS of critters. The newest of which is a monkey! If you missed the monkey's debut, you can see him in my last blog post HERE.

I decided to pair Baker Luka with the adorable hamsters from the Eat More Cake Clear Stamp Set.


I have had Baker Luka colored and sitting on my craft table since he was released a few months ago. I knew exactly what I was going to do with him. I just needed the time and energy to make the card. 

I used the Everything is Rosy Layering Stencil to create the patterned paper. Then I cut the center out with the Double Stitched Squares Die to create a frame. 

I cut the Electric Mixer out using the Spring Has Sprung Paper Pack. The colors were not the right ones for this card so I colored over the patterned paper with Copic Markers. You can still see the pattern, which I love.

I had to make a card full of monkeys. I stamped 5 of them and colored them with Copic Markers. I think I like the brown monkeys better than I do the black ones. 


I wasn't sure what I was going to do with this card. Actually, even though I really love this kit I was thinking it was going to be hard for me to put cute cards together. I was pleasantly surprised! These cards were super easy. They came together in no time at all. 

Looking back at some of my work, you can really tell when I am not feeling inspired or having a hard time coming up with an idea. Are any of you like that? Can you see it in your work?

La-La Land Crafts June 2020 Club Kit Inspiration

Hi everyone!! I am here with some La-La Land Crafts Club Kit inspiration! 

It has been FOREVER since I have done any scrapbooking. June's kit has me so inspired! I have a ton of beach photos that need to be scrapbooked. 


Have you ever heard of the Dot Technique for Copic Markers? The name pretty much explains what it is. You make little dots to color. 

To color the sand and sandcastle, I used the Dot Technique. Something you may need to know about this technique is that it takes some time. Sit back, relax, grab your Copics and color while you watch a movie. Or two. 


I raised both of the pictures that I colored and stuck a tag behind them. The tags are a perfect place for journaling or pictures. 


Coloring backgrounds takes a lot of ink and time, but I have so much fun doing it. When I am finished I am always amazed. Amazed that I actually did that. 


In the picture above I did a background and then added the June 2020 Club Kit Dies
