Howdy friends! This card does not need to be for Christmas but I just got these beautiful Christmas Song stamps in the mail from Oriental Trading Company so I thought “why not?” Wait til you see the size of this stamp set, it comes on an 8.5″x11″ storage panel punched and ready for my binder and it is chock-a-block full of stamps for $16! The sentiment is from that set along with so many pretty lines from other Christmas songs, I can’t wait to play with it some more.
This card is so easy to sketch and paint. I drew the pine cone from one I found in my yard, I’ll give you tips on sketching from life as well as how to accent your watercolors with watercolor pencil and watercolor crayon in today’s video:
If you have any questions or requests for future painting videos just leave a comment and if you would like a more in-depth painting tutorial please consider one of my Learn to Paint with Lindsay printable PDF tutorials in my shop. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

Hello friends! Last night I took my family to watch a bout of roller derby. I really wanted my kids to see strong female athletes giving their all on the track. The girls of Bangor Roller Derby did not disappoint and they won the match against the Poison Pixies of Dover New Hampshire! It was so much fun to watch and cheer for the home team. Even my son thought it was cool and I really wanted my girls to see that there are other “female” sports other than softball and cheer-leading to be involved in. Don’t get me wrong, I love that my girls play softball and I have nothing against cheering, my girls have done that as well but roller derby is freaking cool, I wish it was around when I was in my twenties!
OK I know you visit my blog for the crafty goodness and not the sports report so today I am going to share the latest addition to my shop. It is a set of SVG die cutting templates to make boxes and paper bows! Don’t worry there are printable PDF versions too.
You get a tall box sized to fit 12″x12″ paper, a shorter box sized to fit 8.5″x11″ paper and 2 bows plus labels for the boxes. 6 SVG cutting files in all. When re-sizing in your software be sure to check the “keep proportions” box so the box does not get skewed. The printables are arranged on two 8.5″x11″ sheets. The box can be made larger by cutting the template in half on the alteration line and taping a piece of paper between the two halves. You can make it taller to fit your needs. These boxes would be cute as party favors, wedding table decorations or gift boxes, you can find the kit here.
Oh and speaking of roller derby, or skating in general you might like this skate card template set as well:
another cool thing about derby is that they skate on quad (old fashioned) low top skakes, i used to work at a roller rink and I still wear my low top speed skates whenever I take the kids out to skate. My kids like the “blades” but hopefully they see the coolness of their mom’s ways…well, maybe not. I hope you are having a great weekend! Til next time happy crafting!

I hope you are enjoying summer. I am! I wanted to have some little berry boxes to use in projects but it was hard to find ones that were not stained by berries (and I didn’t want plastic ones) so I made my own:
To make them sturdy I used a sheet of kraft cardstock and a sheet of printed cardstock to make the box!
I have been loving the trend of chalkboard art (not that I’ve mastered it) so I wanted to try stamping some. I made this card that looks like a sandwich board that would be on display on a sidewalk in front of a cafe:
You can get my printable templates & SVG cutting files here. I designed the printables to be printed right on your good cardstock so you don’t have to trace. You get two cards on one sheet of cardstock (2 different sizes) a box and tags. The project makes up in minutes perfect for summer crafting!
Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
