Newton’s Nook Designs | Made From Scratch

Let’s Stir Things Up


Hello Crafty Friends!  Happy Thursday to you:)  I am super excited to be part of the Newton’s Nook Design Team and today I get to share my first project for Newton’s Nook Designs.


If you know me, you know I love to bake, when I saw the Made From Scratch stamp set I knew it was a match made in heaven!  With Valentine’s Day around the corner I thought the sweet little hearts that adorn the baking goodies would work out great for the holiday or even for a fun Just Because card:)


You can watch how I created this card in a step-by-step tutorial down below or over on my YouTube Channel, Just Click Here🙂  Thank you so much for stopping by, if you haven’t checked out the Newton’s Nook Blog, Click Here to find fantastic and fun inspiration!  Time to grab your coffee friends and lets get to crafting.  Wishing you a Lovely Day!  Crafty Hugs, Tina



Happy Crafting to You!
