Thursday, January 17, 2019


Hello, lovelies!
Welcome to day 4 of the Newton's Nook Designs January Release!
All the new products will be available for purchase tomorrow Friday the 18th in the Newton's Nook Designs Shop
We have 2 of new mini sets to reveal today!




This one is called Candy Heart, isn't this the sweetest little stamp set ever!?


And this fun set is called My Type, I absolutely LOVE this set 💚
okay, here is my take...;-)



Newton's Nook Designs Candy Heart Set - Naki Rager


I guess I felt like CAS for this release week! 😆
Super CAS that is!


Newton's Nook Designs Candy Heart Set - Naki Rager


So I had this idea to die cut a heart using the new Candy Heart Die to create a little window. Other than that, I didn't have any designs on my mind, sometimes you just have to start creating and see what comes to your mind... Well, I wanted this super CAS look and this black and white striped washi tape was all it needed!


Newton's Nook Designs Candy Heart Set - Naki Rager


The cute little piece of heart candy with the "hot stuff" message was heat embossed with rose gold EP on the inside, which peeks out of the heart window on the front panel. I borrowed the Happy Valentine's Day! sentiment from the Love Owl-Ways Set, which was revealed yesterday. 


Newton's Nook Designs My Type Set - Naki Rager


The My Type Mini Set is absolutely fun and gorgeous!
I went for a super CAS look on the front by simply stamping the HELLO multiple times and XOXO in red on the bottom corner ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs My Type Set - Naki Rager


You open the card and pop! The beautiful typewriter pops up!
#1 This is my very first pop-up card and it took me WAAAAAAY too long to figure out how to make one...{LOL} Then I realized I could have watched a tutorial on YouTube when I was done...{DUH 😣}
#2 I feel so old I know what typewriter is, my kids have NO CLUE what it is! ðŸ˜±


Newton's Nook Designs My Type Set - Naki Rager


Here is the close-up. I stamped the image with black on kraft cardstock twice and colored one of them with colored pencils. When I fussy cut the colored image, I removed the paper coming out of the typewriter from it and replaced with the blue piece with this cute sentiment stamped on it. Then it was paper pieced onto the other image, which wasn't colored but die cut using the coordinating die. 


Newton's Nook Designs My Type Set - Naki Rager


While keeping it CAS, I still wanted a bit of fun, so I sponged some hearts using the Tumbling Hearts Stencil and pinks and red Distress Ink. I picked specific hearts then masked the rest with the painter's tape before sponging.

Newton's Nook Designs January Release Day 3

Wednesday, January 16, 2019


Hello, lovelies!
Welcome to day 3 of the Newton's Nook Designs January Release!
All the new products will be available for purchase this Friday the 18th in the Newton's Nook Designs Shop!
We're revealing this sweet set called "Love Owl-Ways" today ;-)




Aren't these owls absolutely adorable!?
I'm loving the cute sentiments as well 💛
Okay, here is my take...;-)



Newton's Nook Designs Love Owl-Ways Set - Naki Rager


My first card with the Love Owl-Ways Set is super soft and sweet ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Love Owl-Ways Set - Naki Rager


First I stamped, watercolored, and fussy cut this cute little owl with a single balloon image. And then I stamped the same image again, then a whole bunch of balloon. I watercolored all the balloons, fussy cut it, and paper pieced the owl with a single balloon image on top to just a bit of dimension. 


Newton's Nook Designs Love Owl-Ways Set - Naki Rager


The stitched panel was die cut using the Frames & Flags Die Set from watercolor paper. I blended a few shades of blue Distress ink and splattered lots of water and white ink. I borrowed the little clouds from the Newton Scoots By Die Set and popped them on.  


Newton's Nook Designs Love Owl-Ways Set - Naki Rager


I heat embossed this adorable sentiment with gold EP right next to my cute little owl and it's all done ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Love Owl-Ways Set - Naki Rager


My second card is also soft and sweet but it's a fun shaker ;-) 


Newton's Nook Designs Love Owl-Ways Set - Naki Rager


For this card, I watercolored this sweet pair, they seem like a daddy and his little girl💚
I tend to always pick soft colors but this image was colored extra light with Tattered Rose and Twisted Citron Distress Ink. Aren't they so, so, so sweet!? The cute sentiment was heat embossed with copper EP on the base card before I started to build my shaker.  


Newton's Nook Designs Love Owl-Ways Set - Naki Rager


Because this cover die has this big ampersand, I decided to die cut several of them and pile them up instead of using the foam tape. The Acetate Sheet was added right before mounting the last piece. 


Newton's Nook Designs Love Owl-Ways Set - Naki Rager


I filled inside the shaker with gold, silver, and rose gold hearts confetti, plus tiny clear flower sequins before popping my owl pair on top. Simple but lots of sparkles and I love how this one turned out 💚

Newton's Nook Designs January Release Day 2

Tuesday, January 15, 2019


Hello, lovelies!
Welcome to day 2 of the Newton's Nook Designs January Release!
All the new products will be available for purchase this Friday the 18th in the Newton's Nook Designs Shop!
Today we're revealing the Caffeinated Cats Set!
Let's take a look ;-)





If you're a crazy cat lady (or gentleman) who is also a caffeine addict like I am, well, this new set is a must-have for you!!! How stinkin' cute are these kitties in these mugs!?
Okay, here's what I created...;-)



Newton's Nook Designs Caffeinated Cats Set - Naki Rager


Here's my first card with the new Caffeinated Cats Set, which I used the stamp as a background ;-)
These big "Full Card Front" stamps can be either background or focal point of your cards!


Newton's Nook Designs Caffeinated Cats Set - Naki Rager


After stamping the image with alcohol based ink on watercolor paper, I colored it with real tea! 
I just thought, why not!? But who knew it was going to take so many layers when you spill tea on your clothes and it stains!? LOL



Newton's Nook Designs Caffeinated Cats Set - Naki Rager


I made a "tea bag" with vellum, heat embossed the sentiment, and before sealing the bag, I added bead seeds in many colors. (Can I call this a "shaker"!?) I popped this one kitty that was watercolored with foam tape to add a bit of color ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Caffeinated Cats Set - Naki Rager


The whole panel was die cut using the Framework Die Set and mounted on dark brown cardstock, which matched the sentiment ;-) 
It looks like a lot of work to create this card but it is actually quite easy and simple ;-) 


Newton's Nook Designs Caffeinated Cats Set - Naki Rager


My second card has nothing but colors!
The design is, well, not much design going on {LOL}
I simply enjoyed watercoloring this adorable image and that became the focal point of this card, naturally ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Caffeinated Cats Set - Naki Rager


I didn't want to hide any part of the image so I used vellum to heat emboss the sentiment, which was die cut using the Framework Die Set (I just cannot stay away from this die set!). 



{Would you like to win the “Caffeinated Cats” Stamp Set?}
We will choose ONE lucky winner for each stamp set!

Newton's Nook Designs January Release Day 1

Monday, January 14, 2019


Hello, lovelies!
Welcome to the Newton's Nook Designs January Release!
All the new products will be available for purchase this Friday the 18th in the Newton's Nook Designs Shop!
Let's get onto the reveal because this is so exciting!!!




Fabulous news for those who love NND and use planners!
Heck! You don't need a planner, these wee kitties are super cute for anything 💚
They're called "It's A Plan" and " Newton Makes Plans" along with the coordinating die set!

* A little tip * 
Some of the dies are pretty similar in shape so Jen has created a little cheat sheet that she will post on her site once they go live (she's so thoughtful, isn't she!?), but if you separate them like I do, it'll be easier to store them on a magnetic sheet in the same order as the stamps ;-)

Okay, here are what I created with them...;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Newton Makes Plans & It's A Plan Sets - Naki Rager


So instead of using a planner, I have this big desktop calendar on a wall to jot down any appointments or school events/activities. I decorate it with washi tape and little stickers so that's exactly what I made!


Newton's Nook Designs Newton Makes Plans & It's A Plan Sets - Naki Rager


My life is rather boring so we don't have any fun things planned for me to write down on my calendar {LOL} I still stamped all the images from the Newton Makes Plans Set and colored all of them with my Chameleon Markers ;-) Then I ran them all in my sticker maker. 


Newton's Nook Designs Newton Makes Plans & It's A Plan Sets - Naki Rager


This kitty with a wine glass is probably for going out for drinks, but since I don't do that, I used one for a new year's day, which I paired with the sentiment and little confetti from the Newton's New Year Set ;-) 
I am so very excited about these little kitties, hope Jen keeps making more!!! ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Newton Makes Plans & It's A Plan Sets - Naki Rager


Here's another project that is not a planner page with these new sets ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Newton Makes Plans & It's A Plan Sets - Naki Rager


I try to use this shopping list app on my phone but the problem is, if my phone is on the charger or been misplaced (I do all the time 😳), I don't use it! So I thought keeping these cute little shopping lists right in the kitchen might solve that issue ;-) They even have these checkboxes! 


Newton's Nook Designs Newton Makes Plans & It's A Plan Sets - Naki Rager


Sure, pieces of scrap paper would work just fine, not to mention you're reusing/recycling/precycling (whatever you want to call it...you get what I mean), but why not make them cute so that it might actually motivate you to go grocery shopping!? {LOL} You can make a whole bunch of them and give as a gift, too! Or make a birthday list, to-do lists, menu for parties, etc... So many fun possibilities with these wee cuties! 



{Would you like to win the “Newton Makes Plans” or the “It’s a Plan” Stamp Set?}

Happy New Year, lovelies! 🎉
Hope you all had wonderful holidays!
My first post of the new year is this birthday card I made for my niece who just turned sweet 16 yesterday and it is up on the Newton's Nook Designs Blog ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Caroling Newton Set - Naki Rager


My sister loves cats just like I do and naturally so does her now-16-year-old-daughter ;-) I thought to celebrate her sweet 16 with a trio of sweet kitties singing Happy Birthday to her was the perfect design ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Caroling Newton Set - Naki Rager


This adorable trio is from the Caroling Newton Set, who doesn't love stretching the holiday sets ;-)
After watercoloring these cuties, I die cut it using the coordinating die then fussy cut the tails of Santa hats that 2 of the kitties are wearing to make them into regular knit caps. I also colored their music books with the sparkly blue to hide the little Christmas designs on them.


Newton's Nook Designs Caroling Newton Set - Naki Rager


For the background, I sponged with Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink, splattered some water and white ink all over, then added some music notes using the Music Stencil and Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide Ink. 


Newton's Nook Designs Caroling Newton Set - Naki Rager


For the sentiments, I borrowed "Happy Birthday" and Here's To You" stamps from the Cocktail Mixer Set and heat embossed with gold EP. 


Newton's Nook Designs Caroling Newton Set - Naki Rager


My watercolor paper was die cut using the Frames & Flags Die Set. I used some painters tape to hide the scallops before sponging. For the finishing touch, I added a few light blue sequins and sparkling clear sequins. What 16-year-old-girl doesn't like a bit of shimmer and shine, right!? (Well, I'm 41 and still LOVE shimmer and shine on everything possible and so does my 5-year-old so I guess we never outgrow of it...LOL)



Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hope you enjoyed it!
Hopefully, I will have more craft time this year ;-) 
That means I need to work on my time management skills...LOL 😝
