HOW TO MAKE A PERPETUAL CALENDAR

Inside: creative perpetual calendar ideas to stay organized with your important dates   I have a problem remembering important dates… I’m great with people’s faces but I can’t remember their birthdays, anniversaries etc. It’s embarrassing, I know… but it is what it is. So instead of fighting a loosing battle, I decided to make a perpetual calendar to help me remember. I could put the dates on my phone, but as a crafter I prefer the traditional, prettier way instead of having another reason to be glued to my phone… Lol Besides, after dropping my phone into the sea once, I’ve come to realize phones might not be the most dependable way 🙂 It’s that time of year again…the year closes and we need to get ready for the new year. That means organization! If you’re like me and have problem remembering dates, or even if you’re not like me and you want to be organized I have 3 DIY …

12 AWESOME WAYS TO USE YOUR DISTRESS INKS

Inside: 12 ways to use distress inks in your craft projects   When I first tried Distress Inks all those years ago I didn’t really understand what was all the noise about. But that was not because they were a bad product it was because I didn’t understand their potential and how to use them properly.

They are perfect for traditional ink techniques but their unique qualities open a …

Inside: everything you need to know about making a junk journal and what to do with them   Everyday when I walk into my craft room I see my paper scraps drawer and I look away. I hate that drawer… it really bothers me that there is a pile of unused papers in it and I do nothing with them. So one day I decided to challenge myself to come up with a way to use at least some of them.

Inside: 20+ scrapbooking tips every crafter should know to make amazing scrapbooking pages   I started scrapbooking almost 20 years ago. WOW! time flies!!

HOW TO MAKE CARDS WITH SPECIAL EFFECTS

Inside: how to make amazing cards with special effects   Even in this era of sending cards via the internet on on your mobile phone I still prefer getting real handmade physical cards. I consider myself a modern girl, I have an account on almost every social media platform I know my way around a smart phone and a computer but there is something about opening your mail box and seeing an envelope of something other than a bill and then opening that envelope and finding a card that was made with love just for you.
