Plans for next week



Well...I am planning on making winter outfits and accessories for my paper dolls. I am now making the clothes with tabs that you fold over to keep the clothes on the doll (more like the traditional paper dolls). The hair will still need to be glued on. I am planning to do snow boarding and skiing gear for the more mature paper dolls, but I am not sure yet if I want to do the same for the younger ones. I am going to do sweaters, jackets (trendy), hoodies, beenies, scarves, mittens, etc. If any one has more ideas to add to this winter collection, feel free to let me know. I'm sure that I will forget some things.

Just hanging out

Thought I would do a couple of animals like this. I wanted to make them hang off of cards, pictures etc. would love feedback on this. I am not sure how well something like this would do.

Maybe I should put the big eyes on more of the animals.

Don't know if I am totally set on this design. Would love to know what you think.

Ideas for future releases

I am still trying to figure out how to add a widget for your requests and ideas. So for now, if you have ideas for me just leave a comment on this post. This will have to work until I figure it out. If any of you know how to do this, let me know. Thanks.

More shapes hopefully released today


If anyone would like the French border in a Print and Cut with lines for writing and bows let me know. Hope you enjoy the new shapes. I still have to do one more. I am working on more sports themes for next week. I have been helping a friend on her soccer pages and there are really not enough decorative sports shapes.

Pilgrim outfits

Here are the pilgrim outfits for next week. 

Native American Costumes

I think this is what I will do for the Native American Costumes...Pilgrim ones to come.

Spiky Flower

For this flower follow the basic 6-petal flower instructions but cut 2 rows of the large petals and 1 of the smaller. If you are having trouble assembling it, please let me know and I will make more specific instructions.
Tips before assembling flower:
  • It is best to use hot glue. This will make the flower hold together better.
  • To make a beautiful bouquet you can use green wire for stems.
  • Chalking or inking the petals before glueing gives the flowers a more finished realistic look.
  • Base: Overlap and glue 1st and 2nd petal. Make sure that you match them correctly. The end result should look like a cone with a scalloped ridge.
  • (Optional) curl one end of your wire around to make a loop. insert other end of wire through the base. The loop of the wire should end up inside the cone. Add a little glue for security.
  • 1st Row of Petals: Overlap and glue 1st and 2nd petal. Make sure that you match them up correctly. You are making a cone with the inside so it will fit inside the base. Curl the petals with a pencil.
  • Add some glue to the inside of the base and insert the 1st row of petals. 
  • (Optional) You can cut and add as many rows of flowers as you would like.
  • 2nd Row of Petals: Overlap and glue 1st and 2nd petal. Make sure that you match them up correctly. You are making a cone with the inside so it will fit inside the 1st row of petals. Curl the petals with a pencil.
  • Add some glue to the inside of the base and insert the 1st row of petals.
  • (Optional) You can cut and add as many rows of flowers as you would like.


    • Center: Crease the center along the dashed lines (accordion style). It doesn't have to be perfect. 
    • Add a dot of glue to the inside of the 2nd row of petals and insert the crumpled center. Don't lie it flat against the petals.
