Follow me on Instagram for crafty fun!


Hello Crafty Friends!

Just wanted to drop you all a line to say that I am very active on Instagram (@kathyjocrafts ).  I love to share snapshots of what I am working on, 

completed projects, 

craft room storage, 

and new products (newly released or new to me!).  

Of course, I also like to share pics of my sweet Saint Bernard, Teddy, and his three feline siblings.  They are my crafty helpers.  :)

Instagram is great as I enjoy crafting and taking a quick snapshot of my crafty happiness to share with others makes crafting even better!  :)

Thank you for stopping by!  I do hope you all are having a happy, crafty day!
Big Hugs,
Kathy Jo

New release from Crafter's Companion!


Hello Crafty Friends!

Have you seen the new releases from Crafter's Companion?  Many of the new releases are available on HSN in the U.S.  Most products will be available on the Crafter's Companion online store, too.  The online store may be a couple of weeks or more behind the HSN release.

I just thought I would pop in and share some of the samples created for the show.  The first photo (above) shows off the new Edge-ables curved dies.

A new set of word dies have been released.  The Family die set is perfect for not only card fronts but also albums and scrapbook pages.
"You make my heart happy" looks great with the dotty stencil die and Spectrum Noir wax background.  Great for Valentine's Day and albums!
The It's Your Birthday was too fun and coordinates well with Crafter's Companion Celebrations patterned paper.
A new release of Create-a-card stamp and die sets include the Butterfly frame set.  I used the set with Spectrum Noir Aqua markers and soft vellum embossed paper.
A fun new collection is the Best of British.  It includes papers, dies, stamps, and embossing folders.
Crafter's Companion also released new card making kits.  My favorite is the Easel Card Kit.  Such beautiful colors and patterns!  
The Push Up Posies is another kit and wow- the results are amazing!  A great project to brighten anyone's day!

Above are just some of the project samples created for HSN.  Feel free to join the Fans of Crafter's Companion on HSN Facebook group or I'm a Crafter's Companion Facebook group for more inspiration and sneak peeks of upcoming releases!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a happy, crafty day.

Step-by-step tutorial: Vintage Christmas card


Hello Crafty Friends!

Can you believe it is November already?  Most of my crafting for this month will involve holiday cards...and I love it!  

On Sunday I finished a vintage style Christmas card using Quietfire Design's beautiful "Have yourself a merry" stamp...

... and lovely Celtic Mint Modern Gilding Powder.  The project is shared on the Quietfire Creations blog with step-by-step instructions and photos.  (Yay!)  Feel free to hop on over to the blog post for all of the details.

Thank you for stopping by!  

Have a happy crafty day.

Big Hugs,
