Fun Platinum Peacock Plans!

We are thrilled to announce that we received a new, better camera to do posts! Each month we will be doing: a male card, a clean & simple card, a gatefold or “jazzy” card – in good taste, and a Platinum Peacock Design card. In addition, we will be starting our Valentine’s Day series from the Love from Lizi January kit. Pictures will be posted on Instagram, Twitter, & Pinterest as well. There may even be bonus projects here on the blog & Social Media. 😉 (The card tutorials will use items from the unboxing video available for viewing right here on the blog &/or YouTube.) So, now you have an idea of what to expect from us, we hope you’ll follow us on this creative journey! From Tim Holtz, to Couture Creations, & even Anna Griffin, we hope to inspire you with creativity & versatility. In turn, you have all inspired us to keep going with a messy craft desk to prove it! If you have questions, suggestions, or comments, please use our “Contact Us” page here on the blog. Stay Crafty My Friends!

Three New Cards to Kick off 2017

Our design team put together three new cards using elements from the Love from Lizi December card kit.  The first is a “Happy Birthday” card that we like to call a “guy card” as it has a style fitting to give to the men in your life.


The second card is a “For You” card.  The focal point is a Santoro girl stamp from the Love from Lizi December kit that we brought to life using Prisma watercolor pencils with glossy accents for the water in the background.


The final card is our “Ball Drop” New Year card.  It features a layered die cut “ball” that you can actually slide up and down to simulate the famous Times Square ball drop.

Next week we’ll be shifting our focus to Valentine’s Day cards.  Be sure to follow us on Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook for our latest updates!
