The Robin's Nest is so excited to introduce each of its new design team members to YOU!

Now let's meet each member.

Terri Sproul - Our Team Leader

Peace & Joy Dew Drop Snowflake How To

Hello crafty friends
welcome to Chattering Robin's blog.

Michelle here with you today
to share and easy & quick layered 
holiday card,
using The Robin's Nest Dew Drops & Dew Dew Glue.

I also used the absolutely GORGEOUS 
 Teal Waters Glitter Cardstock also from The Robin's Nest.

I first cut the glitter cardstock just shy of the 
white 5x5 card I chose for this project.
I then applied it using double sided tape.

With each layer after, I used that "just shy" of the last,
and used double sided tape to adhere each layer.

For the top layer, I used snowflake shape wood laser cut outs
as a "reverse" stencil, and applied one layer each
of blue, blue green and Tattered Angels Pearl Glimmer Mists,
dying between each color with my heat gun.

After removing the snowflakes, 
I used a double spritz of the pearl mist 
just to add a shimmer to the "ghost" snowflakes.

For a more frosty effect, I added Diamond Dew Drops
to 3 of the snowflakes, crossway on the card, each centered
with Original & Mini Dew Drops in
"aqua" shades from the Parisian Mini Dew Drop & 
Precious Girl Diamond Drops Collections.

*I prefer to turn the dew drops flat side up, 
then lay the sheet featuring the
Dew Dew Glue, and gently rub the glue dot unto the drops.

To finish the card, I used metallic thread in silver, 
and double sided tape to add the quotation
"Peace And Joy".

And there you have it, an easy
holiday card, with lots of sparkle.

Thank you for visiting today.

This is my last project for The Robin's Nest for 2017,
so I would like to wish all of you

Fuchsia rock's


I would like to show you my newest card for the insiration for The Robins Nest blog.

This card, elegant and classic, is extra because the fuchsia colour of the flowers

catch the eye.

This is a central detail of this card 

even if isn't in the middle of the composition. 

I love the papers with their neutral colours and patterns.

Those papers are perfect for each occasion or type of cards: for man or for woman.

Thank you for your attention.

Best regards.

Art Journal Christmas Wish


Here is Elisa from Italy... Today I want to share with you my new Art Journal page!! A Christmas Page!! I had a lot of fun with texture paste, stencils, crayons, dew drops and of course the wonderful papers by The Robin's Nest:

Here is the processing video, hope you enjoy it:

And now some more pictures:

And now the supplies list:

Till next project!!!


Let's talk about a last minute quickie....

Hey y'all!!  Need a last minute card for the season?
Don't have a lot of time?  Well, I have the answer!!!
This is a quick and easy but gorgeous card I whipped up
with awesome products from The Robin's Nest!!!

Now I have a confession to make....
I HATE glitter! Why?  It gets everywhere!!
That being said, I am very impressed with this glitter cardstock!!!
The glitter did not go everywhere or get all over me!!  WOOHOO!!!

Use your die cut machine and cut snowflakes in white cardstock just a bit smaller
than your card base.... Save those cut outs!!  No waste!! 

Now take your blue glitter cardstock and cut to fit under your snowflake 
piece without seeing it around edges.....  glue it down to your card
base....  now adhere your snowflake piece over it....

Now add some silver straw, silver dew drops and clear dew drops to your card
and to the middle of your snowflake cut outs....
Now you have a quick and easy last minute card!!!  
Hard to get the sparkle from the glitter but I think you can see it....

Products used:

Raindrops Dew Drops  (used mini rounds)
Azure Straw  (used silver straw)

Thanks for stopping by and please come back again!!!

Boys can be angels too

Hello Chattering Robin's Readers,

a blog for The Robin's Nest

Did you know that boys can be angels too? 
Well, my grandsons can,
not always if you are talking to their parents, 
but I usually get the best of their behavior when they
come to grandmas for a week.

Here is Caleb
in his camo pants, because he wants to be just like his
soldier dad.  I was doing a photo shoot with the girls,
and only had 3 sets of angel wings, and he was really feeling left out!

We learned it was hard to find angel wings in our town period, 
didn't even have to be halloween, which is when I picked these up.

So we found some butterfly wings at the dollar store for him and he
was happy,  But when the girls went to change into new outfits, 
he wanted his picture taken with the real feathered wings

I complied, and these pictures of him have come to be
some of my favorites!  
(you can see the black marker mark on his belly,
He really wasn't perfect that day!)

Isn't his expression just the best!
That's what makes this layout so cute!
He is such a character! 
Which we in our family all relate it to the "O" in the last name,
and seriously, all of our grandsons have that "O" in their personalities.

The Robin's Nest Products used in this layout:

Black Herringbone Cardstock  Men's Suit Stamped Specialty Paper  Silver on Black Glitter Cardstock

Classified Sticker  Saffron Cards

The die cuts come from Gypsy Soul Die Cuts.

The wings I cut from the paisley glitter cardstock anything that
looked like it could pass as wings and cut them out and used them
all over the page for wings.

You can find these products on our website.

Have a great day!
