Stenciled Canvas Gift Bag Tutorial!

Yes, I am still crafting! LOL 
Since the divorce, it is so difficult to blog consistently, 
working and taking care of two boys by myself just limits my time.
I wish I had more blog time, I will try in 2016. 
So this is a project I created for publication and here is a photo tutorial for it.
Modeling Paste:
Mica Powder:

A little spray paint on the edges and viola! :) 
Beautiful Gift Holder Idea!

You're My Favorite Flake Clear Card Fun!

Yesterday I shared a Wine Glass Votive Holder and today
using the same stamps I have these clear cards.
You're My Favorite Flake is the best quote ever! LOL
 Avocado Arts always makes me happy and stamping with white 
StazOn ink also makes me happy, Clear Scraps is such a fun product. 
 I wish the shimmer on this card would show, it's really pretty. 
The snowman shape is a Clear Scraps MINI album page .
Love love snowy crafting!

Wine Glass Stamped Votive Holder

Everyone tells me to wait for holiday crafts, BUT I CANNOT! 
LOL, I love snowflakes and snowy's happening people.
Plus it's a wine glass that holds alcohol...just saying'.
This is the latest set of stamps from Avocado Arts and 
of course I can't even handle the awesomeness. 
For this Wine Glass Votive Holder I used embossing powder in gold
around the lip of the glass, then I stamped the snowflakes onto the glass
using StazOn ink in Cotton White with the Season's Tweetings stamps. 
That's IT! It's so pretty and so simple too. It took a couple tries to get the
stamps right with the curve of the glass, so I suggest you try on an old 
jar first, or maybe a glass you can wipe off later with nail polish remover. 
If you mess up, just remove with nail polish remover and start over!

Check out Avocado Arts Stamps they are beautiful.

Bird Cage Ornament

Sending much respect and love to our veterans today!!

I think one of my favorite things about Clear Scraps is the durability, 
I can make an ornament and I know it's just as durable as one
I have bought and I will have it for years to come. 
With the November Kit from Creating Made Easy I created this 
ornament I painted the back and graduated the colors. 
I did use my bakers twine but the rest was this adorable kit!

Fall Window Card Tutorial

I was playing with the Creating Made Easy kit and decided to take
the ATC cards in it and create "window cards" that have a clear
window in the front, fun right?! 
Here is a step by step photo tutorial that you can use to create your own!

Don't forget to erase your tracing lines!

I love the colors and style of this kit.

Turning A Canvas Fence Into A Mini!

I had fun with this Linnie Blooms Canvas Fence, I turned it into a Mini.
Actually I also stamped on the canvas using StazOn inks. 
There is a in holding the top together where I punched a hole.
This was for SNA a few months ago. 
Sometimes you just gotta go with that strikes you. :) 
I was stricken with a mini! LOL
Happy Tuesday friends. Have a beautiful day.

 Cannot believe it is already November! 
That means a fun FOX project from the newest kit at Creating Made Easy. 
This one was fun, everything was in the kit,

I LOVE foxes so hello scissors! LOL

Going Away Card

Personally I find Going Away cards and Condolence cards the 
hardest to create. I am not sure if it's a mental block or the subject. 

Hello my friends, happy Monday!
Also using travel collections always messes me up too, but 
I actually like this card I created a couple months ago. 
It was in SNA and I used Momenta for it. 

The postal stamp mark is actually not a stamp but a piece of acetate.
Theres always something  on my table these days! :)

Vintage Stenciled Tags

I love making tags, I really think it's just fun to play artist. 
I also love the Clear Scraps Mascils, which I used on these tags
to create the background vintage feel 
These were a few months back for an online magazine. 
I believe it was Momenta that the tags were from.

Beacon Glitter Votive Jar

Hey there! You know I love my Beacon Adhesives and when I saw this
Glass and Metal adhesive I knew I wanted to make a glittered votive
holder which is fun for a little sparkly glow. 
 I created this a few months ago for SNA and you can see a photo tutorial below. 
Yes it's messy but it turned out so cute!!

Happy Thursday friends!! <3 p="">

Two More Fall Cards!

Today I have two more "Fall Themed" cards, I went a little
stamp crazy with StazOn. 

I am in love with this new stamp set. So pretty.

I believe the papers are an older set of Samantha Walker papers. 
I have been trying to use my stash lately!
