Advent Day 17 & 18: Catch up with Tags

Sorry about skipping a day.  Unfortunately I had gotten sick so lost several days just staying in bed and recovering.  Still trying to get better, however, at least I am able to get some more posts done. This year I really played with my embossing folders and coloring the embossed areas.  It was my goal…

Advent Day 14: Starry Santa

This was my first Christmas card created when I first received stamps from Blank Page Muse.  This Santa is on this sheet of rubber here, stars are off this one, snowflake here, stars and designs here, and have some other random geometric stamps in the sky.  Used distress oxides and masked off the ground.

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…

Easter Bonnets and Rocks

I’ve actually been doing and writing about crafting for years.  At one point in my life, I had a rubber stamp business and wrote how to articles for Rubberstampmadness, National Stampagraphic, Craftworks for the Home and other small publications.  All this before the internet, so you know it’s been a long while. I had lovely…
