Errant Blogger!

Hello there!

This poor blog is sadly neglected, but not forgotten.  As I try to acclimate to running Winnie & Walter along with my friend and business partner, Julie Mogford, I have to prioritize.  This means some things must slide including verdigris hall.  My energies are going to Winnie & Walter and making sure w&w shines and that is a full time job on top of my other full time job. lol   

I will try to figure out how to squeeze some time in for my personal blog!

I appreciate every single one who has spent even a minute at this blog and giving it your previous attention!  If you are interested, you can see some of my attempts at creating on the w&w blog. :-)

Should you have any questions, suggestions and/or comments, you can email me at shay (at) winniewalter (dot) com.

Big hugs to you all!

First of 2014

Happy New Year, my friends!  I know I have been absent for a while now, but I really have a good excuse (at least I think so). 

Over at Winnie & Walter we are hard at work.  In December we released the *free* The Daily Grind Collection Vol. 1: Holiday Mint Add-On (which includes our first ever cut files!) and another Facebook freebie.

AND we've been working on this:

To find out more you will want to follow along on Winnie & Walter's blog.  I am biased, but I don't think you will want to miss it if you have any love for stamps.
Wishing you and your loved ones a very happy, healthy and creative 2014!

Winnie & Walter: The Daily Grind Collection Vol. 1

Hello!  Long time no blogging.  I have a very good reason....

It's official!  Winnie & Walter is live and we have a collection on sale, newsletter freebie + coupon, Facebook Freebie and also a giveaway of the entire collection on the Winnie & Walter blog.  Don't miss out if you love digital or hybrid crafting!

I love how versatile our The Daily Grind Collection Vol. 1 is...believe it or not we designed it to be that way!  For the little moments or those special occasions, this collection has it all.  Plus it works with what you already have at home or on your computer! 

I made a few items with The Daily Grind Collection Vol. 1 including my first digital layout!

I had a lot of fun along with some tearing of the eyes (Lordy, those puppy paws get me every time!)playing with the elements, journaling cards, wood grain icons and even a little of the papers to create this layout.   
After the digital layout I went back to making cards.  I really wanted to make some cards using some of the awesome stamps I have been receiving from Studio Calico in kits and otherwise.
For the first card I was inspired by one of Julie Campbell's cards she made for Two Peas in a Bucket using a pocket by Studio Calico.
Using the Cuppa card kit I chose a pretty soft apricot to pair with the deep wood grain, vanilla and pewter grey.  



Next I really wanted to pair our new collection with Christmas products.  I chose to pick out the wood grain frame to work with the Magical 6x6 paper pad and the cool Peppermint stamp designed by Kal Barteski.


Finally I went with the ombre chevron (really love!) as a base for stamps from Studio Calico.


This is just a sampling of what can be done!

Make sure to check out the giveaway and like us on Facebook for your freebie!

Happy creating,
