Last month I had two different cross stitch related posts (Cross Stitched card, and finishing the fox you see here in this post), and today I want to talk to you about my newest crafty hobby, how I got started, and some tips for you when branching out with new creative endeavors!
Acrylic Paint Pouring is all the rage – and for good reason! It’s so much fun and the possibilities are endless! Today I am sharing a photo frame that I used by doing just that: paint pouring. You can find a wide variety of pour mediums, and use just about any acrylic paint too!
When it comes to the holidays- I’m one who likes to get a jump start on it and make things early so that as Christmas approaches I can relax and enjoy the season more. Today I’ve got a quick and fun tutorial to share with you featuring the ScanNCutDX and one of my favorite new built in designs.
I absolutely love craft vinyl on clear inexpensive ornaments that you can pick up at most any craft store!
Hey guys! Quick post and a heads up that over 100 prizes, and nearly as many videos are now up on YouTube as a part of a fun (mostly card making) video hop! You can find all the info and what you need to do to enter for chances to win here. I did a quick video about using my manila tag experiments to create cards. You can find that right here. There are five sections of videos that are all listed on that main hop page I linked to before – and today I wanted to share a few faves as well:
Double Embossing with Jenny Colacicco really caught my attention with ideas for embossing both dry and powder!
Teresa Morgan shares an awesome star with shadow technique that I’m loving and want to try!
Sunshine in my Pocket is embossing on wood – a fun idea and project!
Mary Polanco is editing a sentiment (and has my fave – Wonder Woman!) on her card video.
Sandy Allnock has some snowy mittens that have me inspired to get those Copic markers back out!
Magenta Butterfly Crafts is rocking a batch of distress oxide + floral cards that has me inspired to make a batch of holiday cards!
Hedgehog Hollow has me inspired to dig out some embossing powders and create more layers! Loving the technique and reminder to sprinkle + heat from below.
Sharon Curtis has intrigued me with her woodgrain coloring and wreath card! I’m going to see if I can use my woodgrain cardstock for a similar look.
Creativity is such a wonderful thing to share, and I hope you enjoy some of the videos (if not all!) shared this week by so many creatives. Have a great week!
Let me start of by saying, I’m fashion challenged. I await the day fashionable means pajama pants and funny shirts. When that happens? I’m on top of the world! Until then, I struggle. Last spring I set off on a nearly two month expedition to find clothes that look good, were versatile, and didn’t break my budget. The journey had some up and some major downs! Today I’m just going to touch on what worked for me, as well as what didn’t, and what I can recommend.
