A Cute Card and SUPER FUN News!

It’s a new week and a New Year and I think I finally got some things crossed off my list today? It’s been nutty around here, to say the least! 🙂

I’m sharing a card I made today with the cuties from Neat & Tangled’s Lumberjack Love set. 🙂 I colored them for the last Daily Marker 30 challenge and last night they stumbled back onto my desk–I figured it was a sign I should make this card. ❤

I colored them with Copics and die cut them out, adding them to a simple card base that I scored and stitched. My fave! ❤ Plus, I mean, pun. Enough said. 😉

I’m thinking I will save this one for my husband on Valentine’s Day…shhhhhhh 🙂

Saving the most exciting part for last! I’m sharing the exciting news that I am joining the Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine’s 2019 Creative Team!!!

Oh my heavens!! I cannot wait til all their talent rubs off on me!! 🙂 How fortunate I am to have this amazing opportunity?! I am truly still flabbergasted to join these talented ladies and the SCT Publishing and Editorial team, while they all make magic with paper, words, and fantastic photography!  Elated beyond words that can express my joy!!!! And excited to share the news here–yay! Thank you so very much SCT!! ❤ ❤

I hope you all will follow along over there –especially by checking out the printed issues that can be mailed to you with a subscription or you can find them at Barnes and Noble too! You can follow the SCT Blog HERE and check out the latest issue HERE as well.

Happy Valentine; MFT Sketch #264

photoSqueaking one in for the MFT Sketch Challenge this week: Sketch #264. (My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog.)
Here’s my take: Abstracting and label making love. ❤

hawkins_jill_happy valentine_00_wmAnd the Stitched Heart STAX! So <3. I put everything on a wonky angle, because apparently that’s what I do! 😉hawkins_jill_happy valentine_wmI used the Abstract Stencil, spraying pink & gray Copics with the Distress Marker Sprayer. It’s always on my desk, but I’m trying to clean and purge. So I moved it to a “better location” and it took me 10 minutes to find it. I think I function better in the organized chaos? Ha! 🙂

My card is made with the following supplies at My Favorite Things: Die-namics: Stitched Heart STAX, Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX. Stamps: Label Maker Love. Stencil: Abstract. Card stock and Inks (Tickled Pink and Gravel Gray)

My Beaker Bubbles; MFT Sketch #263

photoAnother week, another MFT Sketch Challenge. Sketch #263 on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog. Yana’s guest projects over there this month are fun!! 🙂


Here’s my take: Love. This. Chemistry. ❤
hawkins_jill_my beaker1_wm
I stamped gray on gray here, but the ink really soaked into the card stock overnight. Wacky.

Also, I believe this is a flask, not a beaker. But I color owls blue. So, you know. All is fair in creative endeavors, right? 😉

hawkins_jill_my beaker_00_wmLaina’s newly released sets for January make me so very happy! The minute I saw it, I knew there was Undeniable Chemistry! 🙂

My card is made with the following supplies at My Favorite Things: Die-namics: LLD Chemistry Set, Basic Edges, File Folder Edges, Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX (LOVE!), Stitched Fishtail Banners. Stamps: Undeniable Chemistry. Card stock and Inks.

Thanks for stopping in!
