Scrappy Boy Enjoy the Waves

 Hi! Back with another Scrappy Boy Card!! For this card, I used the Scrappy Boy Summer with My Gnomies Set

The Scrappy Boy Summer with My Gnomies Set has tons of project possibilities! Barbara Sproatmeyer, a very talented artist and colorist has made many cards with this set. You can check them out on her blog HERE. While you are at her blog, check out the classes that she teaches!

When I first finished this card, I was not liking it. The clouds weren't right, the water is streaky, but the more I look at it, the more I like it. Sometimes it helps if you walk away and come back to it also. Which I did. 

Water: BV23, BV20, BG72, BG13, BG11, B01, G20, B41
Wood: W3, E47, E44, E43, E30, BG75, BG11, G46, G20, YG61, YG65

Scrappy Boy Follow Every Rainbow

Good morning! I'm back with another adorable Scrappy Boy Card. I think this one may be my favorite one yet. 

The rainbow is a die from Whimsy. When you color die cuts, it really brings them to life. I was able to make the rainbow sparkle by adding dots in white gel pen and Copic markers.

Scrappy Boy Music Card

 Hiya!! I am back with another Scrappy Boy Stamps creation! 

This time I used the I Can't Stop Singing set and Climb Every Mountain set. 

How fracking cute are these kids?!?! 
I colored these cuties with Copic markers. My favorite coloring medium. 

The paper I used is digital paper from GalleryTwelve on Etsy. I love using digital paper and Etsy has a ton of it. You can find papers for any occasion. 

I kept the card simple so the singers would remain the center of attention.

Scrappy Boy My Heart Wants to Sing

Hello friends!! I am guest designing for Scrappy Boy Stamps. Scrappy Boy Stamps is a new company owned by Sean Covert. Sean not only has cute stamps, but he is also putting out stamp sets that no other company has ever done! Just today his crew is sharing a sneak peek of a stamp set inspired by Gilmore Girls. I might have squealed out loud when I saw this set. I was home alone though...there's no proof. 

The stamp set I am showcasing here today is inspired by The Sound of Music. The first stamp set of its kind! 

I have a confession to make...I have never seen The Sound of Music. I LOATH musicals!! (I can hear your gasps just typing that) 

When I saw this cutie, I knew what I wanted to do with her right away, despite my lack of The Sound of Music knowledge. 

The scene came together easily. I love how peaceful she seems sitting there. I can almost hear the music and the running water. I could sit there with her and color all day. 

You will be seeing more Scrappy Boy makes from me really soon. Be on the lookout!

Paper Nest Dolls Christmas In July With Scrapbook Expo 2021

Good morning friends! It has been a minute since I last posted. Things have been busy for Toadally Love to Craft! A Paper Nest Dolls retreat in Flordia (which included a family vaca to Universal Studios), virtual retreats, magazine publications, guest designing for Scrappy Boy Stamps, staining/painting our home, and getting things ready for Expo! 

Today, July 10th is the Scrapbook Expo Home Edition! It is also my birthday!! I digress...

For the Home Edition Expo, I made a little shaker ornament. This is super easy, fun, and oh so adorable! This would totally make an awesome kids' Christmas party craft. 


You can find the video tutorial HERE...


White: C5, C3, C2, C1
Cheeks: R30
Arms: E27, E23
Nose: YR09, YR07, YR04
Hat and Scarf: BG15, BG11, BG10, BV08, BV04, BV02

Did you notice the top piece changed colors from picture to picture? Where the twine is for the hook? The paper I used is iridescent. I got it from packaging out of a box for toys or something. The paper kind of reminds me of a mirror. 

Anyway...the top didn't actually change colors. It's just the angle and lighting. 

I cut all the pieces with my Cricut. I created the shaker frame in Design Space using a Cricut image. You can find the link to the project HERE...

Today through Friday, July 16th use the coupon code Expo20 to get a 20% discount on all orders!! 

When you are done with your ornament please share it with us in the Paper Nest Dolls Facebook group

Thank you for popping in for a visit! Have a TOADALLY craftastic day!!

Best of Luck From Paper Nest Dolls Lucky Emma

 Good morning crafty friends!! Tomorrow is March. March has me thinking of Spring and St. Patrick's Day. Oh, how I am longing for Spring and warmer weather. Don't get me wrong, I love winter and all it has to offer, but my Fibromyalgia has been acting up something fierce. Which has me ready for warmer temps. 

Anyway, take a look at this adorable card! The image is Lucky Emma from Paper Nest Dolls

There is also a Lucky Owen. They would make a super cute card together. 

I will be doing a live tutorial today on this card and image on my Toadally Love to Craft Facebook page. Come and hang out with me! 4:00 PM PST/7:00 PM EST. 

Lucky Emma will be 50% off until tonight at midnight. Grab her while she is on sale and get a head start on your St. Patty's Day cards! 

All the dies used are from La-La Land Crafts. The sentiment is also. It's from the Best of Cluck Clear Stamp Set. I simply inked the stamp and then took a baby wipe and cleaned the ink off of the C. Tada! I had the perfect St. Patty's Day sentiment.

Paper Nest Dolls Little Cuties

 Hi there! Who do these Little Cuties remind you of?

They were inspired by Alfalfa and Darla! The Little Rascals. Aren't they the cutest ever!? I don't think I've ever seen Little Rascal stamps so I was super excited to see that Paper Nest Dolls released these. 

The paper I used was in my scraps. I love the color combination. 

I did a Facebook Live coloring on these cuties. You can find that HERE on my Toadally Love to Craft Facebook page. If you haven't already, please like and follow my page =)

Keep your eyes peeled for more Little Cuties!
