laughter is……

hawkins_jill_laughter is_ …oooooweee! I just really, really like this set from Altenew! ๐Ÿ™‚ The possibilities…!

I love these layering stamp sets, but the flower ones and I just don’t seem to get along super well? I like those flower sets, and enjoy seeing other people’s awesome creations, but I sort of fall on my face using them. But I’ll keep trying with the set I have! I’ll share someday…?

hawkins_jill_laughter is_2Throw in a little PS Uplifters sentiment love and some stitching…done! Send off to brighten a mailbox! ๐Ÿ˜‰

missing you…

HAWKINS_JILL_missing you_Another card made awhile back…

Just a little stamping, one layer fun here…always like to take one element of a stamp set and go nutty. ๐Ÿ™‚ Lawn Fawn goodness ๐Ÿ˜‰

Oh, and these are Memento Pigment inks, which I enjoy…but you gotta be very patient and let them dry to not smear them. Ask me how I know!

Thanks to you for dropping by–

Supplies: Dies: (Wish You Were Here) Lawn Fawn, Memento Luxe pigment inks, scoring board, stylus, thread.

hello & …

hawkins_jill_ampersands_I made this card months ago, enjoyed it then…and still now! It’s that layered stamping. So fun! Though looking at it now, I’m amazed I centered this. I feel like I don’t do that often? Hmmmm…

This is one of those cards that, while you are making it, you sort of hold your breath as you get further along…hoping it all stamps out well! Especially because this is a woodblock stamp…a wee bit trickier (and in some respects, easier)! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hero Arts: My first love in this wonderful crafty world ๐Ÿ˜‰

Back to mailing out my holiday cards…Thank you for dropping by…

Non-holiday products to make a holiday card–Fun!

This is a lot of die cutting, and that panel takes a beating running it through the machine so much, but it’s worth it! So enjoyable. ๐Ÿ™‚ A couple of tags stamped, cut out…and Bam! ๐Ÿ˜‰

hawkins_jill_darn awesome_…Awesome!ย Paper Smooches has THE best sentiments! ๐Ÿ™‚

I die cut these glasses & hearts and inlaid them–double inlaid? Ha! Fun. I even added sequins–Hark! I usually never glue them down because they looked forced when I lay them out. But I thought these worked. ๐Ÿ™‚

That’s it for today. Oh, but I do want to thank all those who have left nice comments on my recent posts–I know it takes time and I appreciate yours in doing so ๐Ÿ™‚ So kind.

WCMD: Winners (hip) Hop!

wcmd_blog hopJill-Dewey-Hawkins-Thanks-card_WCMD_winner2014_blog_badgeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek! I just squeak all over again! I’m honored as a winner in the World Card Making Day contest! I’m certain there were dozens of awesome entries. I’m fortunate to be one of three winners in the “Thank You” category, along with Virginia and **Isha**(where you arrived from on this hop). Oh, the company I keep! ๐Ÿ™‚ The talent! Garsh. I’m so glad I tried and threw my hat (card) in the ring–what a thrill!

SO MANY THANKS to Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Magazine. So. Many. Including our appreciation for hosting this WCMD hop.

I was super excited to hear this was my winning card, because I gotta tell ya, I really enjoy this one—the white, colored stripes, stitching, lines, this LF die and TT sentiment…eeek! Happiness! ๐Ÿ˜‰ The cardstock is pieced, sentiment die cut then inlaid. The panel is scored, forward and backward, and then stitched, matted, and adhered to a navy card base.

Made it, put it in the box, and mailed. Hence, I send a BIG Thank You to Stacy at PC&S for taking the time to photo this and send to me. Again furthering my admiration of this publication and all the great people who make it happen. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank You!

Instead of these cards being in the fourth issue of 2015, they are coming to you today, the fourth of December. Kind of fitting, but still incredibly sad the April issue will not exist. But, let’s stay on the happy today, shall we? Yesterday’s post and hop about did me in! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

You can follow my blog and leave me a comment below (by December 10th) telling me what your favorite part of Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine is. I’ll pick one random winner to send a little Lawn Fawn sparkly surprise & a few bits of paper crafting fun out to…so check back after the 10th to see if it’s YOU! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hop on to Virginia’s blog next! Now she’s skilled–watch out!

Here’s the other WCMD winners–be sure to stop by and leave them a note! I know I can’t wait to see their winning cards and do so myself! One of the biggest perks of this win: Getting to know these crafty ladies! ๐Ÿ™‚
