It was easy, messy (so my style!) and can be used in a few ways. You could use this piece either for home decor OR as part of your journal if you use these style of journal boards. I have to tell ya, that before I added the “mummy gauze” and the chipboard “boo” letters the background was just so awesome! And it was JUST Gelatos® over Gesso (with a little water, dried, then rubbed again). All the different colors just blend so beautifully together. When they say “Mix and Match”? They mean it.
Hi crafty friends! I hope that you’re all doing awesome this Wednesday. :) I have a post up on the Bloom Girls Design Team blog today featuring a Tag I made. I really ventured way, way out of my comfort zone on this one. Way. Hahhah!!
Whenever I use my Bloom Girls stamps I always try to think of new ways to use them and this was definitely a new way…for ME! I’m not a Copic colorer (I think that’s a word). In fact, I sold almost ALL of my Copic markers, since I mostly use my beloved Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Stamper’s Big Brush Pens for almost everything. Those or my Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. I’m just not an alcohol marker kinda gal. Actually, all that blending? Scary stuff. Heebie-jeebies! But, I decided that with the tag I was going to make that I would use the 25 or so (maybe less) markers that I have and USE THEM!!
Hey there! It’s a New Card Monday!! I’m so proud of the one that I have to share on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today. I gotta tell ya, I’m not always super thrilled by the cards that I make. Sometimes I like parts of them, sometimes I like the technique, or sometimes I wish I could just throw them away (it happens), but I really do LOVE the way that this card turned out. Lots of cool stuff going on with it, too.
Here’s your sneak peek:
This card is really dimensional, shiny, shimmery and super pretty. I hope that you’ll all go over to the Scrapbook Adhesives blog to see the whole thing. :)
I’ll also have a UStream this week with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® THIS Wednesday at 6:00 PM PST. But check out THEIR blog just in case things change. Maybe “New Card Monday” will be something I’ll have to do every week….hmmm….I’ll give it some thought.
Hi everyone! I bet you’re wondering what the heck that post title means, huh…”My New Journey Begins? Whaaat? Well, it’s a very literal thing for me. I’m starting something brand new that I hope will take me new places and allow me to share some awesome new products with you.
So. What is Fun Stampers Journey, right? Well, it’s a little bit like Stampin’ Up in that it’s a direct sales company for stampers, crafters, and all creative types. and there are different levels of compensation depending on what you do IFyou sign up to be a Journey Coach (kind of like a Demonstrator). But, you can also enjoy the many benefits of Fun Stampers Journey just by hostessing a party from home, online, or ordering from the catalog. The compensation for the Journey Coaches is AWESOME and for the hostesses it’s really wonderful, too.
I made a video yesterday when all my stuff came because I was so super excited and I wanted to show all the awesome goodies that you get! If you are one of the first 500 people to sign up, you’re considered a Founding Coach and not only do you get a cute pin, but you are eligible to sign up for $149.99 AND you get the $500.00 worth of awesomeness.
Anyway…my video. :)
I hope that you enjoy this little peek into the kit and that it helps you see what Fun Stampers Journey and MY new journey is all about. Please feel free to e-mail me —> over there —> if you have any questions at all.

Hi there! I’m busy in Southern California today demo’ing for Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® at Scrapbook Expo but I have a super fun card on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today that has ME…thinking PINK! :)
This was a fun card to make and I loved using all the 3D Foam Hearts in a variety of different ways. And I used extra awesome pink photo corners are so sweet!! They are unique for the month of October. So, if you love them? Get them NOW!! Plus, they’re for a good cause as your purchase goes to support the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Here’s a little peek at my card today! I hope it has YOU Thinking Pink.
Hi friends! So if you didn’t know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I have a post on the Design Memory Craft blog today to show my support of this VERY worthy cause. I know too many women who have been affected by breast cancer and to make cards and do posts for anyone is the very least I can do. We need to do MORE!! Yes, strides have been made, but until this disease has been completely eradicated and women (and men!) won’t have to worry then we will have to keep on fighting the fight.
Here’s a close-up of the card I made, but for a much better look at the card and the step by step instructions of this card, please, pleeeease visit the Design Memory Craft blog. :)
Thank you for being a part of this VERY worthy cause this month. For loving the women who are living each day fighting the battle against breast cancer. There are some really wonderful fund-raisers going on and if you’re short on funds? Then check out the Hope You Can Cling To Campaign on Splitcoast Stampers. It’s one of the best ways to make ALL cancer patients happy that I know of. :)
Hi everyone! Happy Saturday! I hope you’ll join me on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today where I have an Autumn Mixed Media Canvas to share with you today. Here’s just a taste:
This is a super duper, easy-peasy mixed media canvas to make. It barely even qualifies as mixed media, really, but there IS paint on it, there IS embossing paste, paper, adhesive, sequins, glitter… and even PanPastels. Okay, maybe it IS mixed media. Hahha! I just love all the shimmer and shine this has on it. It turned out very pretty. (If I DO say so myself.)
So, please pop on over to the blog and check out the rest of the photos and the post. And if you have any questions on how I made it? You know where to find me. :)
Two Posts? Back-to-back?! Shocking, I know!! ;) But, I have a really cool mixed media decor piece on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® blog today. It’s a neutral decor piece on MDF (medium-density fibreboard). Working with the Textural Accents and finding ways to Mix and Match the products is just so fun!
Here’s a little sneak peek of the post. :) It’s verrrry sneaky.
I hope that the super-sneaky-stealthy pic makes you want to see what I have in store for you over on the Design Memory Craft® Blog.
And, I’m thinking of doing a quick YouTube video on showing how to use Paper Crafter Crayons™ (yes, I use them on this piece). Thoughts?
