Ease means not difficult.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to rest and recharge for the rest of the week.

I looked up synonyms for resting or recharging and ease of use came up. So what does it mean to ease? It means for it to not be difficult. Almost every single image with the term ease came with a tube or spray of some sort. There was not really any kind of container to unscrew or pry open.

This makes me think of what my Grama used to say…”if you put in the work little by little during the week then your weekend will be yours and can you be more at ease to relax”.

So what are you doing to set yourself up to be able to relax?

Happy Crafting!

Thick Card Stock is not just for cards!

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Today I am talking about card stock, the thick type to be exact.

I know you hear me say that the Thick Basic White or the Thick Very Vanilla Card Stock is great for card bases. And that I love the fact that you can’t see the bumps from the pen after writing the note in your card. Well, not only is the Thick Card Stock great for cards but it also works amazingly for 3D projects. You have to score beforehand with a stylus or the Paper Trimmer. You can’t just fold, but it is worth it. Boxes, favors, etc. are so much more sturdy with that extra weight.

So before you cut all of your Thick Card Stock for card bases leave a few sheets whole.

Happy Crafting!

A large stamp can have a small impact.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Today I want to talk to you about background stamps and a few ways to use them. The stamp in question is called Wild Roses.

With any background or large stamp there are several ways to use it. You can leave the stamp in its entirety. You can stamp the entire image and then cut it up. You can punch or die cut it into shapes. And last, but not least, you can ink only a corner and only use a portion.

For this project I used the stamped image and cut it into panels as well as stamping only a portion.

To see this technique demonstrated please tune in tomorrow night at 7 pm on http://facebook.com/StampingWithJoni.

It’s time to rejuvenate.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to rest and recharge so you are ready for the week.

Today I want to talk about rejuvenation. Rejuvenate simply means to make young or youthful again. It also means to give new vigor to. (according to Merriam-Webster)

Have you seen someone that is so tired and exhausted that they look haggard and aged before their time? So I want to remind you to periodically rest to regain that bounce in your step.

And how do we get that enthusiasm or spring back in our walk? Well, if you google rejuvenate you will find a whole bunch of pictures of floor cleaner as well as others. The others are what peaked my curiosity. Most of the other photos were of people relaxing but still being stimulated. One person was reading a book, another getting a massage, and so on.

I guess it depends on what part of your body you need to rest. If it’s your muscles you might want to take a long bath or get a massage. If you need to escape then reading a book seems to be a good option. Whatever you choose know that it is helping you to bounce back so that you can continue to live your life with fervor.

Happy Crafting!

Giving back with a coffee.

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward.

How many times have you bought a gift card for someone? How many times have you bought the before mentioned gift card without a thought? Did you know that by purchasing a $25 Starbucks gift card with this link, https://www.starbucks.com/gift/category/military-month, you can give back $5 to Blue Star Families and Operation Gratitude. The $5 will be split evenly between the two organizations. So if you are thinking of treating someone to a coffee (or two) then please consider doing so by giving back.

Here’s the link to the post for this article, https://www.facebook.com/groups/OGInAction/permalink/776173656367686. This link has the link for the entire press release as well as the purchasing link.

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
