Perfect Cardmaking Formula

I’m pretty bad at layering cards. Throw in more than one die cut or an embossed background and I’m at a loss. Luckily I found Yana Smakula’s video on her Perfect Cardmaking Formula. I like her clean elegant style so I think I will be using it quite often! I love that touch of gold…

I made a Book!

Before you get all excited, no I did not write a book, although I did want to be a writer when I was younger, but life got in the way and now I don’t have anymore original ideas or original ways to tell them. What I did do was to learn how to hand bound…

Geometric Marbling pattern

I love card challenges because they challenge me to try new techniques and keep my brain cells from dying too rapidly!

New Year’s Resolution

I think its because I either forgot what they were to begin with, probably the day after the New Year’s Eve party…, or because I didn’t tell enough people what I was planning to do so I would be shamed into seeing it through! Well this year, I’m…

Bling bling

I’m finally able to blog today. I have missed it. I thought about it all through December, while I was frantically preparing orders I received for my shadow box cards, once I told people I had opened my Etsy store. I didn’t expect so many orders, but I was obviously very pleased and excited. My…

Shaving Foam Art!

I’m always on the look out for new techniques to create art and I just found the strangest one yet…using SHAVING FOAM! I discovered it over at The Male Room challenge blog and there are some handy videos showing you how to do it too. I do wonder though how it was invented. Probably some…
