Coloring Wood With Gelatos

Several weeks ago I watched a Craft Tip video on My Craft Channel and HAD to try it right away. In the episode, Lori Allred shared how to color wood veneers with Gelatos. So easy and so brilliant. I mean really brilliant. I’m a recent Gelatos convert and I love finding ways to use them that […] Read more…

Cherish Your Everyday

I remember the day I took this picture. My son woke up from his nap grumpy and disoriented. I was in the middle of taking pictures of some layouts and turned and snapped a picture of him, mostly because I was trying to cheer him up out of his foul mood. At the time the […] Read more…

Heidi Swapp Project Life Cards

I have a confession. Like most of the known scrapbooking world I’m a little obsessed with Heidi Swapp products. I kinda just buy everything,  just so I have it. Does anyone else buy things just so they have them? My mom buys notepads just so she has them and I’m pretty sure Martha Stewart buys […] Read more…

One Smart Cookie Back To School Treats

Twelve short weeks ago we put the backpacks in the closet, sorted through a giant stack of half used school supplies and papers and said hello to summer! After twelve weeks of staying up late, living in swimsuits and tripping over flip flops left all over the house, it’s time to pull out those back […] Read more…

Toilet Paper Tube Back To School Gifts

I shared these cute back to school gift pockets a few years ago and they are still one of my favorite projects. They are super simple to make and they can be adapted for any special occasion. In this case I made this set to hang on my children’s doors for a first day of […] Read more…

Watercolor Layout Backgrounds

I’m still stuck in a watercolor phase, I guess, because I have yet another watercolor tutorial. This time I’m using the Pazzles Pen Tool to draw my coloring lines. I love that I can use any pen in my Pazzles Inspiration Pen Tool, but I see that Silhouette has recently released a Silhouette Pen Holder […] Read more…

Faux Watercolor Stripes

I can’t seem to get watercolor projects off my brain. I have another watercolor technique to share with you later this week, but today I’m playing with a watercolor strip cutting file I made for Pazzles. It can be printed or cut, depending on the look you want. (File is available in the Pazzles Craft […] Read more…

Stretch Your Embellishments Layout

One of my favorite ways to use my Pazzles digital die cutting machine is to stretch my purchased embellishments by cutting matching ones for my layout. In this case I had a teal/gold/ black color scheme in mind and after pulling out some Heidi Swapp papers and embellishments, I needed a few more black elements. […] Read more…

Watercolor Cut Out Cards

The watercolor trend is so hot right now and I’m a big fan! I love the haphazard backgrounds that have been showing up on scrapbook lines and stationary products. The thing is-it takes a little practice and planning to make it look like you just freehanded a big swash of hombre color. At least that’s […] Read more…

Stitched Letter Block Title

Pulling out these colorful spring papers made me ready for some sunshine. I created this layout for the MME sketch challenge using one of their newer lines {the sweetest thing}. I practiced using my alcohol markers for the leaves and then cut them out by hand which took forever, but was worth it. I love […] Read more…
