La-La Land Crafts Fluffy Hat and Cozy Sweater Coloring Tutorial

Good morning friends! It is my turn to do the La-La Land crafts Thursday Tutorial. I had a lot of comments and questions on the fluffy hat I colored last week, so I thought I would do a coloring tutorial on that. 

As I was scrolling through images to use for my tutorial, Comfy Sweater Marci stood out to me. She has on the perfect hat and sweater for the cozy look I am going for. 

For the hat, I used a flicking technique to make it appear fluffy. Short little flicks in random places going in different directions. 


To color Marci's sweater, I used a dot technique. This technique takes quite a bit of time, but the result is well worth it.

La-La Land Crafts October 2020 Club Kit Reveal

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. 

Hey friends! It's the 15th which means the NEW La-La Land Crafts Club Kit is here! This month the critters are hedgehogs!! 


Aren't those hedgehogs adorable?!?! I gave them chubby cheeks. Everything is cuter with chubby cheeks. 

In the October Club Kit, there is an Apple Orchard Border Die. I love the border dies. If you cut them out in white you can color them in and give the appearance of a hand-drawn background...without having to decide what on earth to draw/color. Sometimes, that is the hardest part. 


When you sign up for the La-La Land Crafts Club Kit, there are a few perks.

1) Each month every DT member does a tutorial just for Club Kit members.
2) There is a Facebook group just for Club members.
3) After the first month as a Club member, you can purchase past Club Kits at the Club Kit price! That's my favorite perk of all!

This month, I did my tutorial on the hedgehog card above.

My nine year old told me that Marci needed yellow boots. So, I obliged. Of course, I had to give her a matching sweater and hat. 


I've been layering the insides of my cards. I like the extra stability it gives to them and the way it looks. 

I decorated the inside too. When I show my husband the cards I make, he always opens the cards to see if there is anything on the inside. He once said "one time when I open a card there will be something on the inside. Now he will have something to look at! Lol.

La-La Land Crafts Squeeze the Day - New Release

Hi there! Happy Friday! The La-La Land Crafts Design Team is showcasing the new release again this week. I always like working with the new release for a couple weeks. That way I have a chance to play with several of the new stamps. 

This week I chose to work with the new Squeeze the Day clear stamp set. 

These little mice are just too cute! The one holding that big 'ol lemon is my favorite. 

The card base is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. I often use this card size/shape. It's like a mini canvas to me. 


The dies that coordinate with this stamp set are awesome! I love the mini Lemonade Stand Die

This will be a great set to use in the spring. Lemons just scream spring to me. Maybe it's the bright color. 

Products used 

Squeeze the Day Clear Stamp Set
Lemonade Sign Die

La-La Land Crafts This Is How We Roll Card - New Release


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. 

Good morning friends! It's Friday, which means the La-La Land Crafts Team Friday has some awesome inspiration for you. This week we are using the new release. There were so many goodies released, we couldn't stop at just one week of inspiration. 

I chose to work with the Soy Happy for you Clear Stamp Set. These little hamsters are the cutest! I mean look at him hiding behind that bowl of rolls. 

The sentiments that are in the Soy Happy for you Clear Stamp Set are adorable also. 


The card base is 6 1/4 inches x 3 1/2 inches. When I am layering a card I typically make each layer about 1/8th - 1/4 of an inch smaller than the last. 

To be honest, I don't measure it. I just eyeball it. I know some people like to have things measured, but I like to live on the wild side. 


I love how the black die cuts pop against the gold paper. 

The image, the Asian Landscape Border Die, the Flying Cranes Die, and the Double Stitched Hills Border Die are all popped up off of the paper with foam tape. I like my cards to have layers and dimension.
