Pamela Jane's Studio » Hand over Heart Designs

In just over a week, my designer friend Eileen Hull and I will be teaching a class combining her clever Sizzix matboard dies with my techniques for doodle writing on the die cuts.  For the class, Eileen has chosen her large House die, which we’ll  custom decorate for the holidays, then personalize with my version of doodle writing.

Two class samples


Sample with my doodling and handwriting


If you are close enough to attend, please join us
at Angela’s Happy Stamper on Saturday, December 1st, at 1 pm.
Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving with all the people and blessings you are grateful for.





Some recent doodle lettering.  Hope your summer has been a fun adventure, too!

Time to finish packing for my “Doodle Ink” class at Handmade U in Omaha this weekend. I’m excited and more than a little nervous to be teaching my first doodling class. Even after all the other project classes I’ve taught, it’s a whole different ball game trying to translate something you do kind of naturally like doodling into a technique you lay out in thoughtful steps. Wish me luck, please!

Slowly but surely, I’m squeezing a little doodling for my April class at Rachel’s Handmade U in between the necessary hours spent cuddling with my baby granddaughter, sea-gazing
and tootling around this small island.
  • Catherine - Oh that blue water…sigh. As a child I did not understand why I was not a mermaid. I spent much time in the Carribean sea swimming.


Yep, more doodling.
In April, Rachel Velder McGough will host her Second Semester of Handmade U near Omaha, and I’m so excited
to be teaching a fun doodling class during the weekend!
This intimate retreat held April 19-22 will take place
in Minglewood Lodge, where classes and meals will be held
and the majority of those attending will stay.
Registration for the event has just opened on
In my doodling class called Doodle Ink,
we’ll make a small sampler book and then practice the fine art of doodling!
More than just a mindless gesture, doodling in art journaling
can be a joyful form of stylistic drawing.
Starting with my tips about tools and process,
we’ll approach doodling as a a serious but playful addition to one’s pages,
including lettering, borders and frames, and stylized birds and flowers.
It will be all hands on!

I hope you’re coming!

p.s. By the way, I doodled this “Yes!” in response to another invitation
from Jenny Doh to participate in more doodle fun!
Hope to be able to tell you more soon.
