Advent Calendar 2019 (part 1)

For the past few years, Mercy has been using the end of year advent calendar as a way to clear out leftover paper, brads, trim, etc to make way for next year’s purchases. This year she turned the art into holiday cards that can in turn be gifted. Here are the first half of the…

Super Simple Glass Etching

I love glass but I have to admit it’s a little scary working with it. I’d love to learn how to make the objects themselves but being that it’s a very expensive art and not really a lot of available classes, figuring out an economical way to make personalized glassware is at least something fun…

Alternative to Standard Scrapbooks

I love photography. For anyone that knows me, this is a given. My father was a professional photographer most of his young life and I grew up either his model or toting around his Nikon cameras around my neck. My dad gave me my first camera after making me read the manual, and it was…

Advent Day 21: Holiday Fairy Card

This year I really played with my embossing folders and coloring the embossed areas.  It was my goal…

Advent Day 4: Vintage Christmas

Layers using Graphic45 as the main image, with layers of colored card stock that were embossed using a snowflake embossing folder. Distress Oxides were rubbed over the embossed images.

Snow globe Santa Tag

Yep, another project I did months ago but never got around to posting about. Busy schedules are busy. Anywho, I wanted to make some gift tags for the holidays and I had found these half dome plastic covers at Michaels that are perfect to make shaker globes out of them. You can use this same…

Paper Piecing

Several months back, I met a very nice maker that suggested I try using Snapguide.com for my how tos. I finally came back to my blog with this new format. Hope you all enjoy. Paper piecing is like mosaics in paper. Using simple stamps with this technique is a fairly cool affect. It’s similar to…

Scrap Holiday Cards 2016

OK, so I am late. This is post one of old projects I never got around to sharing. And this is a fairly easy one.
