A Dashboard for my Travelers Notebook

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog. Today I am sharing with you a dashboard that I made for my Chic Sparrow travelers notebook. I use this planner as my wallet and carry it in my purse, it is my go-to for all my planner needs. I bought my newest calendar with months, October, November and December from Chic Sparrow and I really like to decorate my own cover.

For this cover I used Stampotique Stamps:

Arnold and Sargent by Daniel Torrente

Animal Cube by Magda Polokow

I used mostly acrylic paints in my background and just printed out my own sentiment in Word
I used the new Enamel Accents and created a few little dots in yellow. They are raised and add a nice little touch.


I had so much fun with this. It's so relaxing to just throw some paint on a page and just go with it. 

Don't forget about Stampotique's ATC  swap on our Facebook page there is tons of inspiration there and on

Homemade Coasters with Stampotique

Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by today. I wanted to show you some coasters that I made for my daughter and sister featuring Stampotique stamps and some Dylusions sayings.
I also want to invite you to come over to the Stampotique Designer's Challenge Blog and join us this week in our challenge. We always have some great prizes.

this project took me all of about two days to finish. I made two sets of 6 coasters for a total of 12. I created my backgrounds, two by two, all the same so that I could make two sets of coasters pretty quickly.


For the backgrounds I used mostly acrylic paint (since it's permanent and won't smear when I get ready to seal them)
If I used inks it was mostly Archival that I used. Distress or anything else would smear. I love to add washi tape and doodles into my backgrounds as well.
Most of my stamped images were stamped onto thinner cardstock and colored and then fussy cut out. (that what takes the longest in this process) 
The first set were made for my sister. She is a fun and sarcastic person so I used some of the Dylusion's stamped sayings on them.
The second set were made for my daughter and I used mostly Stampotique's sayings
Even though the backgrounds are the same, the coasters came out very different. 
This was so much fun and I loved making them. Time to buy some more blank coasters and make more!!!
(At the bottom of this email I will list with links, the Stampotique stamps I used.)
