9 Days Later…..


Hello All! I’m so sorry that it took me over a week to announce who our Strange Skin Blog Hop winner is!! (Life likes to get all kinds of stupid sometimes…you understand…right?!)

Cutting to the chase, our winner for the hop is

Jenn Borjeson

Congratulations Jenn!! Here are the digis you have won:


Our Bee from the “Buggin’ Out” Collection



Ruthie, the bad ass from our “Heartbreakers Gang” Collection!

We hope you enjoy making cool things with these two, and please please please send us links so we can see what you do with em!! (That goes for anyone and everyone that works with our digis! We love to see all the cool things you guys do!)

I just wanted to take a minute to tell all the girls in the hop that I am so grateful that you all played along! I know that it was kind of last minute, but you girls all turned it out! You did amazing projects, and I love you all for helping us get the word out there about our digis! I can’t thank you all enough! 

I want to give a special thanks to my amazing sister, Alison! Without her, we wouldn’t even be making digis, let alone having these cool hops! I love you so much, and you are totally the best big sister anyone could ever have! (and she’s so pretty and talented too! hehehehe)

If you didn’t get to check it out yesterday, wonder on over to Forever Night Challenges Blog and see what the girls did! We sponsored them this week, and they made some cool things with our lock and key collections! There is a prize from us for checking out their blogs and commenting, so all I’ve got to say is, “What are you waiting for?! Go look at some great projects and get a chance so win more of our super cool digis!!!”

Alright, I think that’s all for now folks! I’m gonna go hit the hay! (It is 3:36am, and I think Jorge is missing me as his snuggle buddy!) Thank you all for checking out the hop, and I hope to see more of you again soon! Maybe another great hop with be in the near future…you never know! :0)

Double Vision?

Hey Everyone! Sorry I haven't posted in a little while, I have been so very busy with so many projects!! I am hoping to share some of that stuff with you, but we can discuss that on a later date! On to the news at hand!!

Today we have a challenge over at The Burtonesque Dolls! The other dolls and I have made projects using twin images! Everyone did things a little differently, and I am no exception! I decided to forget about color, forget about different mediums, and well, forget about a project! What I decided to do was to make a drawing that incorporated one of the heart digis from my Strange Skin digi collections! Check it!

I wanted to do something a little strange and just a touch...for lack of a better that even a word?! Hahaha! Anyway, I really kinda like the way the girls turned out, and I am kind of thinking of making a set of digis based off of them.  What do you think?!  Here is a closer look at just the girls:

If you like the heart that I used, and you would like to use it yourself, you can go over to and get one of your own! If you haven't been the the Dolls blog to check out all the other girls projects, visit 

I hope you guys enjoyed my take on the whole twin challenge, and I hope you come back again soon to see what kind of trouble I've gotten myself into! Have an awesome day everyone, and Happy Crafting! <3

Celebrating A Little Nightmare Before Halloween!

Hello All!! So hopefully you have been visiting me and the other Burtonesque Dolls to see the new releases from Simply Betty Stamps.  If you haven’t been, what have you been doing instead?! What’s more important than this!? Goodness!! hehe

Today I would like to help welcome to the stamping world Ellanore!!!

Now she doesn’t usually dress up like Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas, but this occasion was special! Along with the release of these stamps, we needed to do a challenge today.  The challenge was to take Ellanore and dress her up like one of Burtons leading ladies.  I chose Sally, cause well, Sally is great!!

I used this really great, super skinny ball point pen and drew in the stitches and patterns all over her.  I also used the pen to draw the Jack in the background. 

I colored her in with colored pencils.  I never use colored pencils, but I think that they worked out pretty well for this project!!

Who’s your favorite Burton leading lady? Maybe next time you have a project you need to make, you can Burton-ize it too!

Make sure to check out to see all the other Dolls projects, and make sure you go and buy these stamps at Simply Betty Stamps on Friday!!

Hope you all have a wonderful day today and happy crafting!

Belladonna is here!

So, it’s day number two of the Simply Betty Stamps preview for the new Burton Weenies!! You met JackJack yesterday, so now it’s time for you to meet Belladonna! Give her a wave!

For my project I knew I needed to put feathers around her, because her hair reminds me so much of these cool feathers that I have.

I decided to paint her with gouache in shades of magenta and purple. (That’s the same magenta I usually dye my hair! teehee!) I then took a green tin box that has been waiting to be glammed up, and I attached the feathers and Belladonna.

I have been storing these feathers in a boring plastic bag, but thanks to Belladonna, I now have a cool tin box to keep ‘em in!!

I hope that you guys are in love with her, and will come back again tomorrow to see what other weenies we have in store!

Make sure you take a look at all the other Dolls projects at

Have a great day guys and happy crafting!!

Welcome to the world, Burton Weenies!

Hi everyone! I am excited to tell you all about the new line coming out from Simply Betty Stamps called The Burton Weenie! Myself and the other Burtonesque Dolls will be putting up a new project every day this week to preview Betty’s newest characters. The first character we are introducing you to is JackJack! Say Hello!!

My first project with him is a simple little card that used a close up cropped version of the original image. I painted him in using gouache.

His hair has varying shades of brown and some streaks of purple in there, cause he’s a cool dude! His sweatshirt is painted in blues and purples, and his clippies are red with some Stickles on top.

The rest of the card has Stickles on random parts of the paper to make the bubble design stick out a little more. I wrote the sentiment out by hand, cut out a little red heart, and covered it in Stickles and Glossy Accents.

Who doesn’t love a pretty boy?! Hehehehe If you love JackJack, you will love all the other Burton Weenies too!! Wanna buy ‘em? Well you are in luck, because they will be available on on Friday!!

Make sure you go check out to see all the projects the other lovely dolls made with JackJack, and definitely come back every day this week to see all the other weenies!

Thanks for checking this out, have an awesome day, and happy crafting!
