Character Catches the Heart Cards by Papercraft Essentials Magazine

Hello All,

I did a live stream recreating to some degree the “Character Catches the Heart Cards” by Papercraft Essentials Magazine. Now I will give you the dimensions  I used on one of the card. Since each card is pretty much the same but the placement of the circles and middle bar are moved.

You Will Need:

  • Black Ink
  • Markers (I used Chromatrix)
  • 2 White Card stock (8 1/2 x 11)
  • 1 Colored Card stock (8 1/2 x 11)
  • Stamps (any stamp you fancy)
  • Sentiment (some thing that will work nicely with your stamp)
  • Acrylic block (only if you have cling or mounted stamps)
  • Scissor
  • black pen

Card dimensions:

  • If you don’t have a cutting machine like I do, you can cut down your white card stock to 5 1/2 x 8 on the short end of the sheet. Then fold in the middle to give you an standard A2 card size.
  • With the excess white paper that you just cut, you can make  3 x 3 1/2 plus a 1 1/2 circle
  • For your colored card stock you will be able to cut 5 7/8 x 3 3/4 and a  5 1/2 x 1/2 plus 1 3/4 circle  from an 8 1/2 x 11 card stock.


To see how I assembled my card take a look at my video below.

Live From Twitch – Character Catches the Heart Card

Hello All,

Well I went live today over on twitch, a little later then I wanted. But I hadn’t been on Twitch for at least a month. Which I explain in my video why I was gone so long.

I hope you enjoy!

Checking Out – UK Magazines

Hello Everyone,

Well I’m back and I have brought goodies for you to see! I have just recently bought three magazines:

Love Cardmaking Magazine UK – $14.99 US

Creative Stamping Magazine UK – $19.99 US


Stamp by Chloe Mangazine Kit UK – $24.99


I am going through each magazine over on YouTube. Now I’m not a Rockefeller or anything like that. These where gifts from my hubby for Mother’s Day. So in normal situations I couldn’t by all three. Maybe one in a blue moon but not all three.

Now these are “not sponsored” I was gifted these by my hubby.
