Water Colors Tags with Stamps and Fussy Cutting Tutorial



Hi dear crafty friends! Today I’m sharing the Water Colors Tags with Stamps and Fussy Cutting Tutorial I made as my first post as Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador. I know I’ve already told you how excited I am about it. Being a design team member for a second year is a dream come true!     Water Colors Tags with Stamps and Fussy Cutting Tutorial In this project I decided to explore water colors with the Graphic 45 stamps. I used water colors before but this time I wanted to see if I could use them to create a background for the tags. The Voyage Beneath the Sea papers match the sea water look of the water colors on the tags perfectly. I have a very modest set of water colors but that didn’t matter because I blended a few colors together to create more colors. After all the sea has so many colors of blue and green in it …

Capture the Moment Card with Sizzix



Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share with you a new project. Capture the Moment Card with Sizzix. This is my first DT project for Sizzix. I’m really excited to share it with you!      Capture the Moment Card with Sizzix It was kind of strange for me to create a project that is based on paper only after creating many mixed media and art journaling projects. But it felt good to return to the basics and just play with paper. Don’t worry I plan to create some mixed media projects with Sizzix die cuts too. After all their Bigz dies can cut chipboard like butter. That would be a lot of fun to add them to a canvas or a box.           I created this card by layering pieces of paper with chipboard so they’ll have a little height and them added flowers that were all created with Sizzix dies. At first …

LOVE Mixed Media Canvas



Hi dear crafty friends! I have a new project to share with you. It’s a LOVE Mixed Media Canvas I created with the photos of my husband and boys. I was inspired by More than Words June challenge that seems to be created just for me: Father and Steampunk.   LOVE Mixed Media Canvas It’s clear that this theme is totally me so I just had to create something. I usually create mixed media canvases in a steampunk style without photos, so my problem was how to incorporate photos in this canvas. I decided that close up photos would be the best but I had to cut them from different photos so the colors didn’t match. So I first turned them into black and white photos and after I printed them on regular, not photo paper I want over them with a few colors of distress ink to give them the same color as the metal.      The creation process …

Steampunk Angel Notebook Cover Tutorial



Hi Crafty Friends! I have definitely found a new favorite thing to create: notebook covers. Today I want to share with you my new Steampunk Angel Notebook Cover tutorial. Notebook covers are usually so boring so why not add a little embellishment and color to them. This way you are not only creating something beautiful, you’re creating something useful!     Steampunk Angel Notebook Cover Tutorial Some of you might think that it doesn’t really look like an angel or even as a human, but I love her/him. This is what art is all about… no regular rules apply here. You can create a body that doesn’t look like a body, an image that is male or female or both with no hands but with wings and it’s ok. It’s beautiful, it’s interesting, it’s ART!     When I work with metal parts or other embellishments I ususally cover them with gesso, like I did in previous projects. But this …

Roses Treasure Box with Graphic 45



Hi crafty friends! Today I want to share with you my Roses Treasure Box with Graphic 45. This is the last post as a DT member before I start my new Graphic 45 path as an ambassador for 2017-2018. This project looks much more complicated than it really is and you can make it too with no problems at all.     Roses Treasure Box with Graphic 45 The box is made with the technique I’ve already shared with you before HERE. The post also has a step by step video tutorial to make it even easier for you. So all you need is to follow these instructions and build the two parts of the box.       The embellishments on top of the box also look much harder than they really are. All I did was cut flowers and the frame from the amazing Portarit of a Lady and attach them to the lid of the box. I …

Scrapbooking Tips: Scrapping Multiple Photos



Hi crafty friends! Today on Scrapbooking Tips: Scrapping Multiple Photos. I don’t know how often you see other people’s layouts but I’ve noticed that recently almost all the pages I see are with only one photo. It bothers me. It’s not that these pages are not beautiful, they are amazing, but what happens if I want to tell a story that requires more than one photo?     Scrapbooking Tips: Scrapping Multiple Photos Resize So today I want to share a few tips and ideas on how to create a scrapbooking page with more than one photo. The most important tip I can offer is to resize the photos. If you use regular size photos, like 4×6 then the photos will cover a lot of the page and that will be a little overwhelming. However if you down size the photos into a smaller size then you can fit more photos on the page with them being too over powering. …
