Hi Nichol,
I just want to say that I appreciate all of your informative videos. You have certainly inspired me with my crafting. I love the items that you are wishing for! I was lucky enough to get the black We R Memory Keepers typewriter at Christmas! I am totally in love with mine. I hope you get a mint one soon.

I need to try those envelopes by SSS and get some mesh bags as well.

Happy New Year and I look forward to more inspiration from you!


I agree with the mint typewriter and so wish I had my college typewriter. I gave my 6 year old granddaughter a Pom Pom maker for Christmas. She became obsessed! I'll be watching for your ideas for using something other than yarn. I'm still loving the winter stamps. Winnie and Walters little winter birds for example.

Nichol, I love your cards, but I was wondering if you were going to start doing scrapbook layouts any time soon? You're my favorite artist and I have been following you since your scrapbook days in Creative Memories magazine. I love your style and how you incorporate stamping in your scrapbooks.

I am excited for that tote bag! I also started making pom poms but would love new ideas and different materials to use them with. Thanks for all your ideas!


Hi Nicole, wishing you a creative 2017. In the past year more then ever I realised that I'm really in to colouring. I use coloured images a lot on my cards. So this year I'm planning on investing in Copic Markers and experimenting more with different brands of coloured pencils (I have a Holbein pastel tone set on the way). But I also would like to use cheaper alternatives: in the Netherlands we have a coloured pencil brand called Bruynzeel that I'm planning to try some things out from (they were the only brand that I could affort when I was a kid, but they have different lines now). Looking forward to your new projects! Heidi


I'm crushing on SSS Heart of flowers and Hearts Alive dies and have a wish list that only a millionaire could afford, lol.

Hi Deb! I may publicly share a few scrapbook pages this year, I haven’t decided yet. Without going into a ton of detail some events occurred in mine and my children’s lives that made me take a hard look at what I was sharing online. Unfortunately a great deal of information about my kids was obtained through my scrapbook layouts. I don’t think it will be an issue going forward but I also know my older teen children don’t really love having tons of layouts about them online as they’ve gotten older and I want to respect their wishes.

You lucky girl!!!! How exciting you got the black typewriter for Christmas! Yay!

Hi Nicole, I would love to see some scrapbook pages too but I certainly understand your concerns. Have you thought about using temporary adhesives and stock photos/sayings to temporarily cover your personal photos and journaling? I don't video tape so maybe that's too difficult to be workable; you're the professional.

Scrapbooking for me is highly personal. I don’t think I would enjoy working with stock photos. Anytime I’ve had to do that in the past for magazine covers, etc. I didn’t really love the results. I think some people are really good at doing that, I’m just not one of them! Sorry.

Happy New Year!
I am looking forward to seeing what wonderful ideas you come up with in 2017. I too fell in love with the Mint typewriter, like you, I had been wanting a typewriter for so long. Should have kept the one from high school lol. So I ordered one as a birthday gift to myself months ago, it took a while for the stores to get them in Australia but it has arrived YAY!! Hope you get one soon, they are worth it just to look pretty,

I really want to try the pom pom makers. I need more ideas of what to do with them though :)


Love your style. Both in paper crafting and quilting! That Tim Holtz tote is over the top! Can we just craft together! Would be totally awesome!
