La-La Land Crafts I Miss You

Hello friends! Happy Friday! This week at La-La Land Crafts we are making I miss you projects.  


I rummaged through my stamps looking for the perfect one. This little guy from the Soy Happy For You Clear Stamp Set stood out to me. 

I just love these hampsters! I'm not a fan of sushi, however. I cannot stand the stuff! I know, I know...I am strange. 

It took me a while to figure out how I wanted the layout on this card. I like how it turned out though. Pretty simple.

La-La Land Crafts December 2020 Club Kit Inspiration

Hi everyone! We are 12 days into January. We are gaining more daylight every day here in Alaska. I am always so thankful for that! Before long, we will be having more daylight hours than dark hours. 

Today's I am coming to you with some La-La Land Crafts Club Kit inspiration. This is December 2020's Kit, but the January 2021 Club Kit will be released in just 3 short days!!! 


For the December tutorial that I did for Club, I made a little box. It was the perfect size for the business cards that I bought my daughter for Christmas. I had intended to use Marci on the box, but she was much too big. The adorable kitten was just the perfect size. 


If you are a Club Kit member, don't forget to look at the tutorials that the design team has done for you. There are some really great projects! 


If you are not a Club Kit member, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??! I mean look at everything that comes with it!

La-La Land Crafts Love You Card

 Happy Friday!! I am so happy to be able to excape reality for a little time in my safe place...my craft room. The things going on in our country are unsettling. I won't get into that though.

Let's talk about LOVE!! Our first assignment as a La-La Land Crafts Design Team is to create a Hearts/Love themed card. Perfect since Valentine's Day is just around the corner. 

Now, I know that not all of us are a fan of Valentine's Day. However, I am sure you can think of someone in your life who needs a little extra love. A kind word or just a card to say, I am thinking of you. Do that with hearts!! 

It took me FOREVER to figure out what papers to use for this image. I had some sort of idea of the layout and that I wanted black to be my layering color. Then I remembered the NEW Home for Christmas Paper Pack. I love the Wood papers!! The light grey wood paper worked perfectly for what I had in mind. 


I was feeling quite lazy when I was making this card. It was late and I just really didn't want to do it. I had debated cutting the hearts and words out of colored paper to make it easier on myself. In the end I decided I needed to color the die cuts. I am so glad I did. I love the depth that they have. I know that I wouldn't enjoy them as much if they were cut out of colored cardstock. 

Thanks so mjuch for stopping in to visit. If you want more LOVE card inspiration, hop on over to the La-La Land Crafts Blog to see what my teamies have made.

La-La Land Crafts Happy Birthday

 Happy New Year friends! I don't know about you, but I am super excited to see what 2021 brings. 

2020 wasn't a bad year for us Goodwin's. Actually, I found it to be a year of many blessings. I learned that I need to slow down a bit and start doing things that fill my cup. That way I can have the energy to do what I want/need to for others. I was able to spend more time with my family. My son, who was in a very bad relationship, moved back home. We homeschooled the two youngest. We took a vacation to Flordia. I taught at a craft retreat. I was able to spend time with a sweet friend before she passed away. The list goes on and on. 

I know this year has lots of blessings in store as well. The blessings are always there...sometimes we just have to look a little harder. 

For the first La-La Land Crafts Inspiration Friday of the year, our theme is Birthdays. Can we say SIMPLE!! Which is exactly what I needed. My mojo has been a little off. 

I used a couple cuties from the Pardon My Frenchie Clear Stamp Set. Don't they make the cutest pair?!! 

I used the Ice Cream Cone from the March 2020 Club Kit as a little birthday hat. The little cotton ball finished it off perfectly. 

You see the balloon die?! That will be coming out SOON!! So stay tuned!

Paper Nest Dolls Goth Family Christmas Card

 Hello friends! Are you ready for Christmas?!! All I have left to do is wrap the gifts. I make that sound like it's not much, but you know I will be doing that for hours. That's ok though...it's all a part of the fun. RIGHT?? 

On Halloween, I did a live on the Goth family from Paper Nest Dolls. If you were watching, I promised to make them into a Christmas card and share. It took me awhile to get to it, but here it is!! 


I am in love with it!! I know my mom is going to love it too. 

It was fun using an image that we usually think of as creepy or strange and using it for a Christmas card. 

The poinsetta is a FREE SVG that I found online. Here is the link to that...https://ginaccreates.com/mini-paper-christmas-poinsettia-free-svg/

If you missed that live, you can still go back and watch it on my Toadally Love to Craft Facebook page. Here is the link...https://www.facebook.com/ToadallyLoveToCraft/videos/1222739114766213 If you haven't already please like my page. This will alert you of future lives and other projects that I do.

La-La Land Crafts December Club Kit Reveal

Good afternoon friends! Only 10 more days until Christmas!! Do you know what you should give to yourself?!! A subscription to the La-La Land Crafts Club Kit!! It's only $39.99 a month (plus shipping) and it's something you can look forward to every single month! Let's face it, we all need a little happy mail. 

 With that being said...today is the reveal of the December 2020 Club Kit! It's all about knitting and crocheting. Oh! And kitties!! Who doesn't love kitties?


I love these kittens! So of course I chose to create with them for my first two club projects. 

These cuties are a bunch of trouble makers...getting into the yarn. I'm glad they are just stamps because if I was knitting they'd be driving me bonkers! 

As some of you already know, we foster kittens for our local no-kill animal shelter. Our shelter has the most loving employees and fosters. I know the animals there get the best care. 

Having kittens is a lot like having a baby. They get into everything. They demand your attention. They eat, poop, and sleep a lot. They love to snuggle! 

Ok, enough about that... let's get back to the cards! 

I started out by grabbing the paper. I almost never do that. I usually color and then choose my papers. I like to live on the dangerous side. 

Since the paper has gold accents, I went with a yellowish/gold yarn color. I wanted my kitten to have a lot of contrast from the yarn so black it was. He turned out looking a lot like our current foster kitten, Lucy.

Siamese kittens!! Siamese kittens are often favored by a lot of people. Which is why my next card has two of them. You can watch me color one of them on my Club Reveal video HERE


It took a lot of time to color all of these balls of yarn by hand, but I love the dimension and contrast you achieve by doing this. 

You've heard me say it before and you'll hear me say it again, it's the little details that make your card stand out. Details like hand-colored die cuts.
