My tip: Don't be afraid of dimension, especially when you're trying to create a background to showcase your beautiful digi's.


My Tip: Use an embossing folder to give a tree trunk texture.

Cindy --In Love with PAPER
TiP:  I crunched up my clouds to add texture.  Instead of matching the orange sun rays up perfectly, I offset them to have some of the yellow show, too.

 My Tip: If you cut out an image like this little girl above take a black marker and go around the outer edges, makes it look more clean cut and hides any jagged edges you may have left giving the image a more finished look. 

Brenda - Disney Girl 
My Tip:  Journey Glaze or Glossy Accents work wonderful for achieving a water/wet look.

Tip: Use temporary adhesive to adhere any masks you create.
 I learned that the hard way! Butterflies
are covering my little boo-boo. LOL!


My Tip: For a quick, easy and cute background, try a digi one. 
Bugaboo has this great front door and stoop one!

TIP: I love to add Action Wobbles to the back of fussy cut items to add movement and more dimension to my cards

My Favorite Craft Tools and Giveaway!!!

Hi everyone,
Today's video is a fun one for me. Since getting back into crafting I have noticed that I am pulling certain items over and over again and thought it would be fun to share with you.
Two years ago, I took a step back from crafty and downsized 75% of my craft room.  However with just these awesome tools, I have been able to get back into the swing of things and I don't miss having a larger craft room.
Personally, I feel every crafter should have these starting out.  They make creating easy and fun!

Tools mentioned: Misti, Neehna Bright Cardstock, Distress Oxides, Ranger Dylusions die cut, In Love Art Shop word die cuts, ATG, Prismacolor Pencils, premade cards,Fiskars cutting blade and trimmer, Zig color pens, Wink Of Stella, Alcohol markers, t-ruler, Westcott 0 ruler, 6x6 paper pads, Versamark, EK Success powder tool, 3d Crystal Lacquer, Tombow adhesive, Momento/Hero Arts black ink, Cricut, Chameleon Black Pen, Pencil, Grid stamping block, etc.


For the month of Sept…

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself.


Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise.

Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card.

The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements:

3/81 3/81 5/82 5/82 7/83 7/84 1/85 1/8 Next, put you…

Easy Mini Albums

This was a fun project to make and so easy! I swear this is the easiest mini album I have ever done. The best part is it can be a bullet album also for the daily planner people out there. A perfect gift idea.
Here are some of the pictures in my album, and the video is posted below where I show some of the products I used to make it and the rest of the pages.
