To Do: Breezy Thoughts…

Happy, Happy Friday!

I’m sharing a Paper Smooches card today that I wish I was currently living in! LOL! πŸ™‚

Can’t you smell the salt water breeze? πŸ™‚ Or hear the Lake winds? πŸ˜‰

For this card, I used Paper Smooches fun new Daily Diary set which is super fabulous for lists, planners, notes…but also, for CARDS! (I ❀ that little box and check mark–especially when it is checked off!) These PS dies are also new, Postage Stamp dies, and come in a set of FOUR! The Lighthouse die just rocks! πŸ™‚

That’s all for today! Next week is our DT Hop to celebrate October’s release! How crazy is that? Where is September running off to? πŸ™‚

Have a Great WEEKEND!
Take care- Jill πŸ™‚

Coffee and Bacon! :)

With a title like that, breakfast awaits! πŸ™‚

This new Planner-Yum set from Technique Tuesday is a riot! I mean, “Today Calls for Bacon”. Bacon-tastic! πŸ™‚
hawkins_jill_bacon_wmI thought it would be fantastic to rain bacon. hahaaahaaa! πŸ™‚ A simple, smile inducing card!hawkins_jill_bacon_00_wmI stamped all the bacon, masked off a spotlight area, and blended in some Distress Ink. Then I colored in all the bacon very simply with Copic Markers. Too funny πŸ˜‰

Next up, the beloved Cup of Get Going:

hawkins_jill_coffee_wmI watercolored with Zigs on this one and added googley eyes, of course. πŸ˜‰ I also used the Photo Frame die and the Heart Strings die for the perfecto hearts.

hawkins_jill_coffee_00_wmCheck out another card I made with the cutie Fries HERE! SO enjoy these little TT stamps! πŸ™‚ Some other faves HERE and HERE. Student and School!

hawkins_jill_fry day_wmI mean, could this stamp be any cuter?! πŸ™‚ I masked, stamped, colored with Copics, added some glitter and googley eyes, and done! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_fry day_00_wmWho says Planner stamps aren’t for cards? πŸ™‚

I also used TT’s die set Greatest (Fresh Cut Studio) for the fun arrows stitched on the bottom. Here are a couple of my other NEW favorite Planner Stamps HERE and HERE. Student and School!

Technique Tuesday September!!

Technique Tuesday has fun new September products available now!Β  I thought I’d share one card I made with one of the new products! There is a big foodie theme to please your appetite! I know I am excited to make some more!…and maybe have a snack πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_whatscookin_00_wmThis is the new owl for September: The Chef Owl! He’s so cute! And fun to color! Coming soon!hawkins_jill_whatscookin_wmWhat’s Cookin’? πŸ™‚ I also used the fun Chow Down planner stamps to fill in a little background! And I rounded out the sentiment with the Sending Smiles stamp set. (I might be wearing that set out.) πŸ˜‰

Technique Tuesday had a fantastically fun week with Random Acts of Cardness last week! You can learn about it HERE. You can check out the heap I sent out on Instagram HERE. Many smiles in small envelopes πŸ™‚

Smiles to the Teacher!

I had to make a card with Technique Tuesday’s new planner stamps! TT (and Teri! #TArules) had me at the smiling ruler! I mean, really. I am a fan. A big fan. πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_teacher_wmThese stamps just make me happy. Is that so wrong? Nope. πŸ™‚ I watercolored these with my Zig markers and used some patterned paper for the card base. I must use more PP. Must. I have put a moratorium on obtaining anymore til what I have is gone. It will be dust by the time that happens. LOL.

hawkins_jill_teacher_00_wmThere are the NEW Planner Stamps HERE and HERE. Student and School! ❀ Oh and I used a fave: TT’s Clipboard die. And also: World’s Greatest and Sending Smiles.

Technique Tuesday is also having a fantastically fun week with Random Acts of Cardness! You can learn about it HERE. I’ll be sharing a couple snaps of some cards I made for this soon. (AND eventually a bunch of other TT cards I see I have not posted here yet? I send them to TT and forget to come back and write posts after the release happens. Blergh. I’ll catch up someday…right?)

Happy Back to School to all the kiddos and parents that are both happy and those that need BIG HUGS too! I’m in the later category. But eventually in both, I’m guessing! πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by!

Planner Stamps for Cards!

I super enjoy Technique Tuesday planner stamps! They are so fun and whimsy! I am trying to commit to using a planner, so I can use them often. πŸ™‚ We’ll see. In the meantime, I know I make cards! So that’s what I did:
hawkins_jill_thx_wmThis little car is one of my favorite of the planner stamps! πŸ™‚ It is from the set: Planner-Car.

hawkins_jill_thx_00_wmThe letters are from the die set: Hometown Lower Case. I need to use these more often, because I like the font! πŸ™‚ And it’s the perfect size for cards! I quick colored the cars with Copics. No blending, just color! πŸ™‚

You can check out all the Technique Tuesday Planner Products HERE. If you are a planner person, I cannot recommend them enough. Also, their price point is awesome!! πŸ˜‰

Thanks for stopping by! Have a fantabulous week!
