Carving Your Own Stamps

I found a new addiction. Don’t worry it’s not dangerous unless you count staying up all night playing and it’s not costly unless you consider $6 expensive. Curious? Well…I started carving my own stamps! Now before you roll your eyes and asking “carving your own stamps, really?” let me just say I was sceptic first. I thought to myself not only does it seem hard but I don’t know how to draw and carved stamps never look too pretty. Well…I was wrong! First of all it’s super easy and everybody can do it and second you don’t need to know how to draw and you can make amazing custom made stamps. Let’s address these issues one by one and I promise you by the end of the post you’ll be convinced as I am!     Carving your own stamps Carving your own stamps is hard If you have the right tools it’s not only easy but it’s fun!

Frugal Crafting: DIY Embellishments

Everyone of us can practice frugal crafting: DIY embellishments for every project. It’s all a matter of using what we have in our stash and not buy embellishments or use ready made embellishments as a default. Every time you need to embellish a project like a scrapbook layout, a canvas, an altered item or a card and you automatically reach for your embellishments’ drawer or box stop! Stop and think “what can I use instead? can I create my own embellishment?” Yes you can! you can make your own unique items or personalized embellishments you already have.   Frugal crafting: DIY Embellishments for Every project Some of these ideas may be old and familiar but even though they are so well known we tend to forget them. It’s definitely easier to save time and reach out for something we bought at the store but if we want to save money and use our stash let’s embrace the practice of frugal …

Life as an Artist Behind the Scenes secrets

Many of you tell you wish you were like me, doing what I love without compromise. But life as an artist is not just the fun and excitement you see it’s also a lot of crap that nobody knows about. Today I’m sharing my life as an artist behind the scenes secrets. Those things nobody tells you and the things you never know. The things that don’t work out, the things that hurt or get cancelled and the things that never see the light of day. Last year I shared some of these secrets with you in the first life as an artist post and I have a few more to share.   Life as an artist behind the scenes secrets DT insult Remember summer 2014? maybe it wasn’t a special summer for you, but it was a very difficult time for me. That was the summer we were at war and missiles were falling near my house. That was …

Simple Star Mini Album

This simple Star mini album is one of the easiest mini album to make but the effect is definitely a wow effect. The fun thing about it is that you can do it with your kids or grandkids and watch their eyes open with wonder. All you need for this project are 3-4 A4 (8 1/2″ X 11″) papers. They don’t even have to be double sided. It’s actually a great project to use some of your unwanted papers. I took a few 12×12 papers I didn’t need and cut them to size.  I was going over my archives, doing a little spring cleaning and came across this project from a long time ago. I remember the nice lady who showed me how to create this simple star mini album. I lost touch with her and can’t remember her name. As you know I don’t like to keep things to myself so I decided to share it with you.    …
