Jennifer Timko 

My name is Jennifer Timko and I love paper crafting! I live in beautiful Virginia with my husband, two amazing sons and two loving rescue kitties. In my “day job”, I’m a pilot with United Airlines flying as a Captain on the Airbus A319/320. I started paper crafting right before my oldest was born and over these 20 years, I have created bonds and friendships that are truly priceless. My style is clean but I love trying new techniques. There is always so much to learn.

Jennifer is reaching new heights of holiday fun today! Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Week - Day 1 - Jennifer Timko | Holiday Heights Stamp Set and Christmas Time Paper Pad by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Some extra “decorations” in your Christmas tree?! The plight of every cat owner! Today, Jennifer created a card featuring our new Holiday Heights Stamp Set. She colored the tree and kitties with Copic Markers. Word has it that these two culprits resemble her cats Kate and Meg. After coloring, she used the Holiday Heights Die Set to cut out the image.

Meowy Christmas!

Today Ellen has created a wonderful cat themed greeting card and coordinating tag! What a PURR-fect way to celebrate the holidays!

For her card she stamped and colored the image of the kitty popping out of the gift box from our Newton's Gift Stamp Set. She gave the kitty fun stripes on his fur and adorable pink cheeks! This image has a blank tag on the front and sentiments that fit it so you can customize your greeting. Ellen chose the sentiment "'tis the season to be meowy." She cut the image out using the coordinating Newton's Gift Die Set

For her card base she cut out a piece of pretty plaid paper from our A Cat's Life Paper Pad and framed it with a blue scalloped edge, cut out using our Frames & Flags Die Set. She also cut out a green banner using our Frames & Flags Die Set. She added the kitty image over the banner to help make it pop!

She added the fun decorative tag top, cut from the same patterned paper she used on the card, cut out with our Fancy Edges Tags Die Set. For the image she stamped and colored the cute little kitty from our Purr-fect Present Stamp Set. Isn't it cute how she colored it to match the image on the greeting card!?

Always on my Nice List Card by Samantha Mann

Always on the Nice List Card by Samantha Mann | Dear Santa Stamp Set, Pines & Holly Die Set, Banner Trio Die Set and Snowfall Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

ALWAYS on My Nice List!

Know someone who is ALWAYS on the nice list? This card by Samantha is perfect for sending holiday wishes to all your favorite people.

For this beautiful card she started by creating a snowy background over her white card base by using our Snowfall Stenciln with a glittery paste. 

For the star of the card, she  colored the adorable Santa reading his list from our Dear Santa Stamp Set. Isn't it adorable how she made the Santa suit a fun shade of pink instead of the traditional red? She cut the image out using the coordinating Dear Santa Die Set. She layered Santa onto her card with a wreath that was created by cutting out lots of branches using our Pines & Holly Die Set. She added the branches to her card a circle shape with a sewing machine! So cool! Santa appears on one side of the wreath and the message "You're always on my nice list!" is on the other side. The message was embossed onto a vellum banner that was die cut using our Banner Trio Die Set
