Newton's Nook Designs 5 Year Celebration! Day 1

Monday, July 16, 2018


Hi! Hi!! Hi!!!
July is such an exciting month because Newton's Nook Designs celebrates their anniversary and this year, it is a big 5! WOW!
We are going to celebrate all week with the reveal of the new products, and we have tons of fun, new sets! AND we will have a blog hop with fabulous guests, too!

I love July Release, not only it's a big release month, but Jen usually has fun summer stuff, and this release is no different! Today, we are revealing 3 stamp sets along with their coordinating die sets and 2 stencils! OH.MY.WORD.!!! 💗



Mermaids and Narwhales...
We couldn't possibly ask for more, could we!!?
I was dying to color these adorable ladies! 💗
 Okay, I may have spoken too soon...
YES! PURR-MAIDS!!!
Let's just say, I cannot wait to see what the rest of DT members have created with these cuties as we were all super psyched to see this set! 💗 

 And when you thought "this release is already so fabulous!", here we are with these cute little chunky "Floaty Potatoes! They're soooo cute 💗


Call me a broken record, but I am so happy to see new stencils every time! 
And now look at this GORGEOUS design 💗

I totally flipped out when I first saw this new stencil!
My hubby's passion is marine life, especially the corals. He actually wanted to be a marine biologist but you know, life doesn't always go the way you want... Anyway, We've been married for almost 20 years now and I know a bit about a lot of different marine lives myself 😉 So this stencil is just perfect for us!

Alright, are you ready? 
I have TONS of photos this week so brace yourself!


Newton's Nook Designs Narly Mermaids Set - Naki Rager


I ended up with this trio of mermaid cards, I just wanted to color them all! {LOL}


Newton's Nook Designs Narly Mermaids Set - Naki Rager


All the images from the new Narly Mermaids Set were heat embossed with White EP and watercolored then die cut with the coordinating die set. Here's my mermaid #1 with her fish friends, she immediately reminded me of Ariel from the Disney's Little Mermaid! They were all watercolored then pearl watercolor was added for some shimmers 😉


Newton's Nook Designs Narly Mermaids Set - Naki Rager


I paired her with this adorable sentiment 😉
It was heat embossed with metallic Silver EP to match the metallic washi tape. 
I know I'm a bad photographer so just take my words when I say, this pearl is so delicate and beautiful with the pearly watercolor! {LOL} 


Newton's Nook Designs Narly Mermaids Set - Naki Rager


Next mermaid has a turquoise hair with an orange tail, and she is hanging out with her narwhale and sea star friends 💗 Aren't they simply adorable holding hands and dancing in the sea!?


Newton's Nook Designs Narly Mermaids Set - Naki Rager


They certainly are making waves dancing together!
This is another adorable sentiment from the new Narly Mermaids Set and it was heat embossed with Metallic Copper EP to math the Metallic Copper washi tape. 


Newton's Nook Designs Narly Mermaids Set - Naki Rager


My last lady has beautiful purple hair and a green ombre tail, and she is busy snuggling with her sweet narwhale friend 💚 The sentiment was heat embossed with Gold EP to match the Gold Washi Tape. 
All the backgrounds are watercolored with Cracked Pistachio and Faded Lilac Distress Oxide Inks, I also splattered some of the inks, then added sparkly waves using the Waves Stencil and glitter paste. 


Newton's Nook Designs Purr-maids Newton Set - Naki Rager


So as I said early, the whole DT is super excited to see these cuties and I'm sure you are too! Newton's girlfriend is so lovely, I had to have a lot of pink for her!


Newton's Nook Designs Purr-maids Newton Set - Naki Rager


My beautiful purr-maid and her seahorse friends were heat embossed with Rose Gold EP and watercolored with pearl watercolors. The seahorse swims over to the purr-maid to give her a little kiss, isn't it sweet!? 💗


Newton's Nook Designs Purr-maids Newton Set - Naki Rager


This sweet sentiment was also heat embossed with Rose Gold EP.
The background was sponged with Tattered Rose and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks, splattered some water, then those beautiful shells were applied using the new Seashell Stencil and glitter paste. 



Newton's Nook Designs Purr-maids Newton Set - Naki Rager


And here's my Newton 💙
I die cut a few layers of vellum using the Sea Borders Die Set to create an ocean for him to swim in, and added a glittery seafloor and lots and lots of sequins all over the ocean! What a magical ocean, I wish I could swim with him!


Newton's Nook Designs Purr-maids Newton Set - Naki Rager


He was heat embossed and colored with the pearl watercolors as well.
The position he is in fits perfectly in the waves, I love when things work out on their own 💙 


Newton's Nook Designs Matee-rific Set - Naki Rager


These manatees are so chunky and cute 💙 
These 2 chubby friends are making a little water whirl! 


Newton's Nook Designs Matee-rific Set - Naki Rager


I heat embossed all the images with Silver EP on watercolor paper and watercolored, then die cut using the coordinating dies. The sentiments were also heat embossed with Silver EP then die cut with speech bubbles. 


Newton's Nook Designs Matee-rific Set - Naki Rager


I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the "Floaty Potatoes" sentiment 💙 What a cute and perfect nickname for them! And did you notice that this manatee can hold stuff with his flappers!? This one found a pretty seashell 😉 



Newton's Nook Designs Matee-rific Set - Naki Rager


They can go round and round and never stop!
I watercolored the ocean with blue and some yellow, then added shimmer with pearl watercolor.

Hello, lovelies!
Hope you're all enjoying this beautiful summer!
I am up on the Newton's Nook Designs Blog today with a little summer treat 🍦💙


Newton's Nook Designs Summer Scoops Set - Naki Rager


The Summer Scoops Stamp Set was released back in 2015 but the Coordinating Die Set was just released with the June Release along with the Coordinating Die Sets for the Aloha Newton and Newton's Summer Vacation Sets! And that was the perfect excuse to finally get this yummy, adorable set 💛


Newton's Nook Designs Summer Scoops Set - Naki Rager


I LOVE ice cream 💛 
If it was healthy, I'd totally live off with just ice cream, chocolate, and cheesecake {LOL}
Anyway, this adorable ice cream image was stamped with Antique Linen Distress Ink on watercolor paper and watercolored. I went over most of the image with the pearl watercolor for some shimmer, pretty 💗 


Newton's Nook Designs Summer Scoops Set - Naki Rager


This ice cream on cone image was also stamped with Antique Linen Distress Ink on watercolor paper and watercolored, then the fudge topping received some shimmery treatment 😉 I'm actually not a fan on fudge at all, but it does look yummy on my vanilla ice cream with some sprinkles, doesn't it!?


Newton's Nook Designs Summer Scoops Set - Naki Rager


This adorable sentiment was heat embossed with rose gold embossing powder on vellum banner, which was die cut using the Frames & Flags Die Set. 
I thought a whole panel shaker with a bunch of bead seeds would be really fun like sprinkles, so I die cut the panel from white cardstock and the Double Sided Adhesive Foam, sandwiched a piece of Acetate Sheets between the 2 panels, poured in a lot of bead seeds in with the panel upside-down and mounted the basecard. 



Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hope you enjoyed it!
Make sure to come back next week for the Newton's Nook Designs July Release! It is their 5th anniversary and is a huge one! 🎉💚💛


Newton's Nook Designs and Xyron Inspiration Week

Tuesday, June 26, 2018


Hello, lovelies!
This week Newton's Nook Designs and Xyron are partnering for a very awesome inspiration week! Each day there is fresh inspiration using Newton's Nook Designs products with Xyron adhesives on the NND blog and on the Xyron facebook page!

Today lovely Maria Russell and I are taking our turn to inspire you with some fun projects! Here goes mine...;-)




Xyron was so very generous and offered us some goodies to play with (Thank you so much!) and I picked their Teresa Collins 1.5" Sticker Maker and some refills! This is such a great way to use up some of your huge scrap collection (it's okay, we all have it, no need to be embarrassed about saving every little scrap...LOL) with the Shape Dies like the Autumn Leaves Set, Peppermint Die Set, just to name a couple ;-)




The reason I chose the sticker maker is so that I can just slap on some NND stickers on my big calendar! I don't do planners, but I still need to write down things so I won't forget (even though I still forget somehow...LOL) 
I was directly stamping and coloring on the calendar (like the grad kitty from the Newton's Graduation Set) but I had to take it down and put it back up on the wall, and thought stickers would make that easier!


Newton's Nook Designs Winston's BBQ Set - Naki Rager


A little grill image is from the Winston's BBQ set. I stamped it, colored with colored pencils, fussy cut it, then fed through the sticker maker. Isn't this a must for summer ccok out with your family and friends!?


Newton's Nook Designs Shark Bites Set - Naki Rager


My twins are turning 5 in August! And I am throwing them a party and thought, wouldn't it be cute to send a reminder sticker with the invitations!? And since the theme is "Sharks and Mermaids", I used this big guy from the Shark Bites Set ;-) He was stamped with light gray on Kraft cardstock to match my Kraft calendar, colored with colored pencil and die cut with the coordinating die, then ran through the sticker maker. 


Newton's Nook Designs Loveable Llama & Playful Pandas Sets - Naki Rager


The stack of presents image is from the new Loveable Llamas Set, and the little balloon is from the new Playful Pandas Set. I'm gonna have to make A LOT MORE of these little images, so many birthdays! 


Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Book Club Set - Naki Rager


I got a 1.5" sticker maker so some of the bigger images wouldn't fit, but no worries! Like this one from the Newton's Book Club Set, the stack of books that Newton's is on is a lot bigger, but all I needed to do was fussy cut to have only 2 books so that it would fit the sticker maker ;-) I originally picked this image for some events at the local library during the summer, but this fit, too!


Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Sick Day Set - Naki Rager


I just wanted to show you how easy it is to use the sticker maker. 
Also, I had these prescription bottle images from the Newton's Sick Day Set that are pretty small and wanted to feed them 2 at a time, and I used a piece of Glad Press & Seal to keep them in place. 


Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Sick Day Set - Naki Rager


I don't know about you, but I am pretty cheap when it comes to consumable supplies and try not to waste too much {LOL} I could have run these guys one by one, but that would have made a big waste! Doing this made more sense to me...;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Sick Day Set - Naki Rager


You feed your pieces from one side, pull the adhesive paper from the other side, that's it!


Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Sick Day Set - Naki Rager


Before getting too excited and peeling your freshly made stickers, you want to rub it (if you have a tool like this, that's perfect!) to make sure all the adhesive has transferred. Then peel the film and enjoy!

Newton's Nook Designs June Release Day 4 - Newton's Kitchen

Thursday, June 21, 2018


Hello, lovelies!
Wow! Today is already the last day of the Newton's Nook Designs June Release!
All the new products will be available for purchase tomorrow Friday the 22nd in the Newton's Nook Designs Shop! But wait! We have one more set for a sneak peek, ready!?



Our adorable Newton is such an adventurer and this time, he is a little chef!
I don't like cooking but am not a bad cook (if I do say so myself...LOL).
I wish I had a cute little helper like Newton!
Okay, here I go...;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Kitchen Set - Naki Rager


I just couldn't resist this ADORABLE image with this ADORABLE sentiment 💗
If you're a cat lover (and I'm pretty sure you are since you love NND), you know how cats purr and push, sometimes even suckling on your clothing/blankets (my cats only do it if I have my fleece blanket over me). I absolutely ADORE that 💗


Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Kitchen Set - Naki Rager


This cutest little chef was heat embossed with Tan EP on watercolor paper, watercolored, then die cut with the coordinating die. His chef hat was stamped with light gray on watercolor paper, some shadows and gingham to match his scarf were watercolored, then die cut with the coordinating die set. 


Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Kitchen Set - Naki Rager


This adorable card is actually another interactive card!
He doesn't move much, I just wanted him to knead the dough! So his bottom was secured in a place with a brad pierced through from the back of the patterned paper and a tiny piece of foam tape in between the patterned paper and the back of the chef. 
(I tried to post a little video but couldn't figure out how to make it smaller so I'll post it on my Instagram! LOL)


Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Kitchen Set - Naki Rager


My second card using the new Newton's Kitchen Set also has this adorable image with another adorable sentiment 💗 I think this card turned out to be very fun with a lot of patterns and bright colors paired with black & white! 


Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Kitchen Set - Naki Rager


This cutie was stamped on watercolor paper and no-line watercolored, but I wasn't happy with my color choice, I colored over it with colored pencils! I die cut him out using the coordinating die but again, wasn't happy with the color I used on the background either so decided to fussy cut around him but kept the stove top part and put it back in the place. 


Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Kitchen Set - Naki Rager


I had this patterned paper with this frame and it made a fun background, almost like wallpaper and a framed picture! And this adorable sentiment does deserve to be framed so here it is ;-)

Newton's Nook Designs June Release Day 3

Wednesday, June 20, 2018


Happy hump day, lovelies!
The Newton's Nook Designs June Release continues and you will be able to get your hands on these fabulous new products this Friday the 22nd in the Newton's Nook Designs Shop!
But let's take a sneak peek at more of the new sets first!
Today we have 2 super fun sets to reveal and I have a feeling you'll LOVE both!



First up is the Wine A Little Set along with the coordinating die set!
The name itself is simply fun and adorable, but look at these little images with these sentiments!


Isn't this such a unique and fun set!?
The sentiment just kills me...😆
Ready to see what I created!?


Newton's Nook Designs Coffee & Wine Set - Naki Rager


First up is this fun card with the Coffee & Wine Set
The sentiment is the focal point but it couldn't tell its story without using all the little images that come with it ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Coffee & Wine Set - Naki Rager


I stamped all the images on white cardstock and colored them in with Chameleon Markers then fussy cut them. Before popping them on with foam tape, I foiled the little backgrounds using the new Sunscape Stencil, aren't they cute!? ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Coffee & Wine Set - Naki Rager


This sentiment is just so fun! It was heat embossed with white, early espresso, and a teeny bit of red EP on the bottom of the sentiment on vellum then fussy cut. I popped it on inside the biggest frame with clear 3D tape (I wish it were truly clear!).


 Newton's Nook Designs Wine A Little Set - Naki Rager


My first card with the Wine A Little Set is an interactive card!


 Newton's Nook Designs Wine A Little Set - Naki Rager


I saw the cork, corkscrew, and this sentiment and thought, wouldn't it be really fun to actually uncork!? I stamped the cork then only half of the corkscrew then colored them together so that the corkscrew is in the cork. 


 Newton's Nook Designs Wine A Little Set - Naki Rager


I mounted my front panel with foam tape so that I could make a path for a piece of the Acetate Sheet. As you can see in the photo, I also popped the corkscrew with foam tape.  


 Newton's Nook Designs Wine A Little Set - Naki Rager


My second card with the Wine A Little Set is very CAS but still fun with the red wine and the foiled red dotted background ;-)


 Newton's Nook Designs Wine A Little Set - Naki Rager


I watercolored these bottle and glasses and fussy cut as well.
I applied the Glossy Accents on my glasses to give some shine ;-)
I tried a few different backgrounds first but this foiled dots were the winner ;-) Deciding on which color to foil with after applying the transfer paste using the Bubbly Stencil was quite a task! {LOL} The red foil is pretty bold for me, but it really isn't that intimidating on white cardstock ;-) Plus, I stayed inside the stitched lines of the frame from the Framework Die Set so it looks more controlled (if that makes sense...) 


 Newton's Nook Designs Wine A Little Set - Naki Rager


Instead of using the sentiment "The best wine is..." as my original design, I thought this cheers sentiment die was more fun for this card! I die cut the sentiment from the Cocktail Mix Die Set 3 times from black cardstock and heat embossed one of them with clear EP then layered them all. Doesn't it look like a puffy sentiment sticker!? I LOVE it 💗
