This contest is now closed. Thank you to all who entered! The winner will be announced shortly on a separate blog post. Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

I wish you and yours all the best for 2018!!!!!!

This blog hop is one of my most favorite all year! Companies and designers coming together to have a massive giveaway! Each person in this hop has a prize. Its a way of saying thanks. A small token of our appreciation. We love sharing our work, ideas, inspiration, projects, and a part of ourselves and our families with you. Without wonderful people like you, our jobs would not exist! 



















Kimberly Crawford *you are here














































2017 was a different year for me! A big change happened and I could not say thank you enough! This year I began designing kits for Papertrey Ink with my new line, Sincerely Yours. What a change to be on the "other side" of the industry! Designing stamps, dies, papers, and curating some amazing new products, has been a dream come true! Its been a ton of hard work. A ton of learning. And one fun challenge!

Modern + Marbled

My very first kit was, Modern + Marbled. What I love about this kit is the stamp image that creates the marble look, in one impression! With all the amazing mediums out there, creating beautiful marbled backgrounds is a snap! The kit also contains dies, envelopes, gorgeous gold leafing, and exclusive custom faux wax seals! I could not be prouder of my initial kit! For more information click here: Modern + Marbled Introduction


Envelope Envy

Envelope Envy launched this fall and no longer will your envelopes need to be plain and boring! This kit includes stamps, dies, sticker papers, and stencils, to help you create beautiful envelopes for your beautiful handmade cards! I have more video tutorials coming up in the new year with this kit, so stay tuned! For more information click here: Envelope Envy Introduction

The Sincerely Yours line will continue to grow in 2018 and I know you will love what you see!



The other exciting happening this past year was the launch of Mail It Monday! Each Monday, I post on social media, and on my blog, to remind you, to encourage you, to inspire you, to mail those beautiful handmade cards! I am personally guilty about not mailing cards. I need the push myself and from the AMAZING response, you all needed the help too!

Mail it Monday is for everyone to participate in! Feel free to use the hashtag #MailitMonday on any of your social media posts. Or simply, follow along, and allow the reminders to get you outside to the mailbox. 

In 2018, Mail It Monday has SO much in store! First, the new logo. More on that soon. Second, more guests. Third, organization. (Stay tuned because on January 8, I have a free download you WILL NOT want to miss!) Fourth, inspiration and encouragement. I have more ideas than Mondays! :D

Giveaway:
Time to get to what you are here for!!! The prize!!!


I have a $25 gift card to PapertreyInk.com for the winner!

For a chance to win the $25 Papertrey Ink gift card, leave a comment on THIS post telling me a technique or skill you would like to learn this year. You have until Tuesday, January 2 at 10 PM CST to leave a comment.
The winner will be announced on January 3, sometime during the day. Please check back for my blog post. If the winner does not email me within 24 hours, I will draw a new name. This contest is open to all commenters, international people are welcome! Best of luck!

Sincerely Yours,

Even my Christmas cards that I make right now and put away, I am doing the envelope as I make the card! I love it and it makes it especially personal. I would like more tips to do inside of cards to bring the whole thing together...esp if you use digi stamps, how can you stamp again on the inside of the card or even the envelope? thank you!! Happy New Year!

I have to admit I was introduced to Papertrey this year. I needed Hanukkah stamps for family cards. I do both Christmas and Hanukkah. I fell in love. Have not got the marble kit but love seeing what can be done with it and it is on wish list. I would like to become more familiar with mixed media type cards this year. Allowing myself to use different techniques and skills to my work.

Ruth G said...

Hi, Kimberly! You definitely had a wonderful 2017! I love the idea of Mail-it Monday!!!! I sometimes don't even get the cards made, but then mailing them (especially if they are late) is very hard for me. This is such a positive and inspiring idea, though! Thanks so much for sharing!!!

I would like to work more on watercoloring stamped images. I just love doing that, but I don't always take the time to do it (probably because I'm swimming in patterned paper, which I love, and I feel like I need to use it up.)

Wishing you a creative and inspired 2018!!!

Henriƫtte said...

What is your Marble kit gorgeous, wow I love that stamp.
I want to wish you a healthy, happy and creative 2018!

Verna Angerhofer said...

I am loving the neat kits you showed and they look to be so much fun to work with. As for my new creative challenges or techniques I am hoping to try more projects other than just cards. I made a slight stride in that direction this year so hope to reach out more in that direction. And, maybe expand my card making skills to more complicated ones instead of the CAS designs I do now and love doing. But who knows? I might discover I am not good at the more complicated things so at least I can fall back to my CAS style.

Sharla said...

I LOVE your envelopes, so pretty! I want to learn lettering this year and keep up on my projects!

I would like to learn how to use the Zig watercolor markers. I have some but have never used them. I would also like to learn how to make my cards look more "professional". I always feel mine look very juvenile.

I want to learn how to watercolor kj.j n 2018. It is ok me of the most beautiful mediums, but it scares the sickens outta me. I've gotta remember it's just cardstock and paint.
