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!

Paper Nest Dolls Build Your Own Nest with Laptop Girl


Hello there! After I shared the card I made with the Paper Nest Dolls Build Your Own Nest stamp set the other day, I decided to do another one...LIVE. 

In the Facebook live, I walk you through how to use the Build Your Own Nest digital stamps to create a scene and color a portion of the scene. 

This scene was originally created by Marina Vazquez. She is a crazy talented colorist! I wrote to her and asked her if she minded me doing a live on the scene she created. She said yes =)

So many people love the Build Your Own Nest stamp sets that Christine (the Paper Nest Dolls artist) is going to make more scene sets!! Isn't that exciting? I cannot wait! We were throwing ideas out to her during the live. 

Below you will find a list of all the Copic colors that I used. You can find the live video HERE and watch it on replay.

Paper Nest Dolls Essential Workers

 I did it, you guys! I finally colored up all the Paper Nest Dolls Essential Workers. I love these stamps! They are adorable! 



I started coloring them while the Super Bowl was on and finished them over a couple of days. 

I did some experimenting with skin and hair tones. I have been looking for a dark skin tone that I like. One that has contrast...like the white skin combo that I use. I found that my favorite dark skin is the one on the officer. I will continue playing with the skin combinations and keep you all updated if I find another one that I like better. 

You can purchase the Essential Workers as a bundle or individually. 

The bundle is the best way to go. You save $17!! ( that's over 50% off!! ) If bought individually these images would be $35...instead, you get a total of 27 images for only $17 (9 Essential & 11 extra images to go with) Plussssss, you get the Mask Set FREE (7 masks included !)

Happy Birthday 8th Birthday Paper Nest Dolls!

 Hi friends! There are some pretty exciting things happening for me and Toadally Love to Crafts. I am now the manager of the Paper Nest Dolls Stamp Company! I cannot tell you how excited I am about this. 

I have been designing for Christine for 5 years this year. We have become great friends during this time. I love the freedom she gives her designers. It makes designing cards so much easier when you are not limited. She is also very supportive and encouraging. 

 Yesterday we celebrated Paper Nest Dolls' 8th birthday with a live coloring on my Toadally Love to Craft Facebook page. We had so much fun! We played games, chatted, and colored Ellie with Candle.



Ellie comes in rubber and digi. I used the digital version printing Ellie at 3.65 inches tall.

If you didn't see the live you can watch it on replay HERE.

The cupcake shaker portion of the card is a file from The Cutting Cafe. They have the cutest cutting files! I was able to cut the file with my Cricut Maker. 

If you are looking for some online fun, Paper Nest Dolls has a couple of virtual retreats coming up. On that is March 27th and 28th that is spring themed and another that is June 5th and 6th that is Disney themed. You can find more details for the March Spring Retreat HERE and the June Disney Retreat HERE. Both events will be SUPER FUN! 

I've got to run for now. If you have not already, please like and follow Toadally Love to Craft Facebook page, =) 

Have a craftastic week! 

Hugs,
