thanks…cover!

hawkins_jill_thanks PCSholy *bleep*! FREAKING OUT (still)! Happy New Year! This is on the January 2015 cover of Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking!! And the cards it shares space with?!! Heather Campbell’s & Betsy Veldman’s cards are um…hello!? WOW!! Humbling. I’m still floating. La la la. 🙂

I love a good laugh and trying to write out the instructions for how to make this card sounded like an Abbott and Costello routine…”die cut the die cut, then die cut that die cut into the other die cut…”. But of course, because they know their stuff, they broke it down visually inside the magazine. And can I say, Thank you! 🙂

Check it out:

I cannot wait to sit and really take this whole issue in…the colors inside are fabulous too! PC&S never disappoints…issue after issue after special issue. Incredible. I just can’t imagine only one more month and special to come? Not going to dwell today. Let’s enjoy them while they are here, shall we? 🙂

Thank You to PC&S! 😉 & Thank you for stopping by and reading my freak out!

Jill 🙂

The die cuts I used are two of my favs: Lawn Fawn’s “Scripty Thanks” and Avery Elle’s “Rounded Diamonds”. I rather enjoy a good, bold scripty word, but I am so picky about them…not too swirly, or spaced or whatever it is. It’s silly. This LF one is perfecto! 🙂 Avery Elle also makes another fav of mine, “Chevron Bits”. I had to put those away to let them rest a lil’ while. 😉

Supplies: Dies: (Scripty Thanks) Lawn Fawn, (Rounded Diamonds) Avery Elle. Cardstock: Paper Source, Bazzill Basics, Hobby Lobby & the Paper Company. Thread.

Holiday 2014: PC&S December

hawkins_jill_2014 xmas__

Happy Christmas! Oh wait, it’s not even Thanksgiving yet! 🙂 Let’s hope I get cards made for Thanksgiving…My gratitude list is truly endless.

This card had the good fortune of being published in the December Issue of Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking’s “Creative Sketch”. Just when you get stumped for new ideas, BAM! 🙂 PC&S Inspiration. People make really good stuff. 😉

I used my favorite #’s and “Joy Flair” …love me some flair! (“…make the minimum 37 pieces of flair?!”, Office Space. Hilarious!)

Happy…um…Holiday Season! Yes, let’s go with that! 🙂

Thank you for stopping by…your comments are always so kind!

Apple of My Pi…

hawkins_jill_apple pi_Is it wrong when you crack yourself up? Nah… 🙂 “If you can’t laugh at yourself…”

I so enjoy a good play on words…

Here’s the card I was fortunate to have selected & published in the September Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Issue. These magazines are oozing with inspiration and (a lot of) talent 🙂 Go check it out!

This card has a little bit of several stamp sets–which makes it that much more fun.

Enjoy the last two days of “summer”!

Thank you for popping by…
