happy 2015

new years eve

Hello!

It's New Years Eve....how crazy is that!! And before I forget I want to mention that to bring in the New Year there's a 20% off all clear stamp sets Sale!!! I think we can all agree and say time flies by and I'm sure that many of you like myself are reflecting on 2014. I'm looking forward to 2015, a fresh slate, new hope....a second chance. I hope to make some changes to my blog here, share more of my life...how I'm going to go about this I'm not sure....I'll see how it goes and what feels right. 

The same goes with Jane's Doodles. Many changes have happened this year, the biggest is that I'm doing this on my own now. I have so many fun designs sketched in my book waiting to come to life. I'm so grateful to all my customers who support me. I know I'm not the biggest fish in the pond....more like I'm that teeny tiny transparent fishy (you know the one).....but I have a lot I want to share and create. 



I wanted to share this drawing today and offer it as a free digital. I was drawing late last night (had to stay up until midnight to give Mia antibiotics (she's got a nasty ear infection).







One of my many ideas for new stamps is portraits like this one but more my style of drawing, making some tweaks (you'll have to stick around and see what I'm talking about! :)  ). Growing up I had a rainbow of friends, different religion, black, brown, yellow, white....and my sets are all inspired by things, people, etc. in my life. I don't really follow trends...perhaps not a good thing.





To create the stripe background I used my Stripes and Dots stamp set. I inked the stamp and first stamped it on some scratch paper and then onto the card to create a more washed out, softer look.
I coloured the girl with my Graph'it markers. The sentiment is from my Butterflies stamp set.

From the bottom of my heart I want to wish you all the very best in the New Year! Love, peace, and good health.

chalkboard gift tags and Seamus

Hello!

I'm so running behind this year...I just got back from Christmas shopping! Yes you read that right! It's just been a never ending cycle of flu, colds, Adrian in the hospital and now Jakov and Mia have ear infections (took them to the doctor's last night!)...anyways I mentioned these chalkboard gift tags I made below...I just used my white gel pen and some white ink to distress it to make it look like chalkboard. For the Christmas tree I just doodled it. The snowman is from a set I designed for the German company Efco. I just stamped it with white ink (or embossing ink if you don't have white) and traced over it with my pen. So if you can't draw or doodle you can use your stamps....just make sure it's not a very intricate design because it will be difficult and a bit messy when you trace over the lines with the white gel pen. 






Here's a card I made this morning using my Seamus stamp set and a SRM sticker. I coloured with my Graph'it markers.


I will announce the winners of both my giveaways tomorrow.

bookmark

Hello!

It's Marion's turn on the blog and she's created this sweet bookmark using my Hello Friend and Read All About It stamp sets. If you're buying someone a book for Christmas and think making a bookmark to go with it would add that extra special touch! :)



Have a great weekend! :)

shaker card

Hello!

Continuing with my red-white chalkboard art Christmas paper crafts I'm sharing my shaker card. Jennifer McGuire has a great video with awesome tips on making shaker cards. 




I used my Stripes and Dots and Warm Wishes stamp sets to create these cards. The pattern on the red card doesn't shop up nicely in the photos but in real life it looks gorgeous! :)



I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder.





I just LOVE red and white stripes for Christmas...did I already mention that! ;)







Have a great day!

december

Hello!

I'm getting together with some of my crafty friends soon and to get some ideas on some Christmas projects we can can do I turned to Pinterest and found this pin which has all my favourite Christmas elements - red and white colour combo and chalkboard art.
  
I love this red and white stripe pattern...reminds me of candy canes!! 




I used my Stripes and Dots stamp set to create my stripe pattern and my Warm Wishes (which is on sale....50% off people!!) to create my chalk board image. I heat embossed the snowman with white embossing powder and distressed with some white ink.


I added a SRM sticker (December).


Have a great day!

blog spotted - just a note

Hello!

I have been so frustrated the past few days...there's no internet on my laptop. We had issues with our phone and ever since then it's been wonky. So I'm on someone else's computer until mine is fixed!


Anyhow...I spotted this beauty by the wonderful Amy using my Doodle Flowers II stamp set! I LOVE everything about this card....EVERYTHING!!


I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
