May Guest over at Neat & Tangled!

Hello Crafty Friends! Fun news to share to today, as I am the May Guest Designer over at Neat & Tangled! I could not be MORE excited to be joining their amazing designers this month! Huge thanks to Danielle! And to my friend Miriam, who incidentally costs me a lot of moola. 😉 ❤

My first card this month features Elena Roussakis’s cutie little set, Jump for Joy!  When I saw this squirrel, I swear my heart leaped with delight! (My friend Lisa will vouch for my complete love of this set! ❤ ) He is just the stinkin’ cutest! I absolutely had to use him straightaway this month.

Be sure to hop over to Neat & Tangled today to see my full post about how I made this card. You can find that post HERE.

Thank you again, Neat & Tangled–looking forward to sharing more this month! 🙂

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend ahead!

Take care- Jill 🙂

Taylored Expressions: May Mini Release!

Welcome to a fun extra post for Taylored Expressions May Mini Release! All the new products for this cute release are available over at Taylored Expressions now!

My first card features the NEW Little Monsters stamp set. These little guys are so silly!

eeeeep! How cutie are they? I made a fun and splashy watercolor background by adding water to the panel and then dropping Taylored Expressions watercolors on there.

I love the fun bright colors on this one! 🙂

My second card features the new Inky Fingers: Monsters set. I think these little fingerprint sets are the sweetest and so does our son! He’ll be getting inky sometime soon to make some cards for his Dad and Grandpas! 🙂

Love these little guys peeking out! I was intending to put google eyes on them, of course, and then forgot! ha! I am actually going to give this one to our son. shhhhh! 🙂

Both of these new sets are perfect for making Father’s Day cards, but I also completely enjoy that you can use them for any occasion or even for no occasion at all! 🙂 *Just Because* is my favorite occasion. 🙂

You can find all my supplies and links to the Taylored Expressions Shop below.

I wasn’t sure how this would be with the plaid patterned paper….but sure enough, I find it delightful! The pens in the pocket slay me! 🙂
