Vellum in disguise.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Have you ever used paper to disguise something? I know we often use embellishments to disguise our goofs when leaving a smudge or fingerprint on our paper. But how about using paper to cover?

In this case I am talking about vellum. When a piece of Designer Series Paper is too bright then use a piece of vellum as an overlay. When a piece is too dark use a piece of vellum as an overlay. When you want accents on a card that aren’t the main focus use vellum. Just remember if you use a stylus to have a light touch. And if you use a heat tool to emboss move it away an additional inch or so and keep it moving more. Vellum scorches and warps much easier.

Happy Crafting!

Rest is important.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! Today is the day to rest, re-charge, and get things back organized. As I sit here typing in my pajamas I am so grateful for the life I have. I am surrounded by great people that support, love, and want to be around me. Yes, I’m talking about you. Now some of you might be coming to see what happens next, but regardless I’m glad you’re here to share this adventure with me.

Yesterday was quite an adventure. I just wish I had taken some pictures. 16 of us stamping, talking, eating, and enjoying life together. It was something not to be missed.

Are you wondering what I am talking about? The Annual VIP Event was yesterday for my team, hosts, and club members. If you want to be a part of this then come on. Join Club or host an event. Don’t want to do either? Then place an order over $150. Thank you for coming! And I hope to see more of you next year.

In the meantime I am going to finish cleaning up and get my feet up. Here’s to a great rest of the day and weekend.

Happy Crafting!

When old meets new.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I am starting to talk about Father’s Day. There are some great sets with some truly meaningful sayings that are so appropriate for this occasion. So today’s card is created with A Good Man and Geared Up Garage.

Here is the video on how to create the card and much more of what is going on. https://youtu.be/03C25T_t-vU

Using an aqua painter to glue.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Do you know that the Aqua Painter can be used to glue product together? Yes, the Aqua Painter. No, I have not lost it (more than any other day).

Take the Aqua Painter and make sure it is rinsed and cleaned fully. Then fill with water. As you are finishing that stack of cards to go out in the mail use the Aqua Painter to glue or stick the envelope flap to the envelope. No more paper cut on your lip or that yucky taste from the envelope glue.

Happy Crafting!

Using both sides of the paper.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Today I want to share a little tip with you. Most of our Designer Series Paper is double-sided. So use both sides. If you don’t have coordinating ribbon then use the opposite side of the paper to coordinate.

Happy Crafting!

It’s all about connection.

It’s Friendship Friday! Today is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward. I hope you feel the connection. I hope this group is like family to you, a functional one.

I know you can go to a store for your crafting supplies. I know that there are other places and other ways to purchase glitter. So I thank you for coming back to me and continuing to do so.

As I watched this video it brought things back in to perspective for me. It’s not that I am teaching a class on how to glue paper together, it’s how it’s done. It’s the love shown, it’s the connections we make. In a simple way it’s the impact.

Here is the link to the video…https://www.facebook.com/JayShettyIW/videos/592165044594836/.

So let me ask you…how are you serving your coffee today? Remember it’s not necessarily what you do but how you leave someone feeling. It’s all about the connection you create.

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
