And Friday is back!

Are the birds chirping a little more today?  It’s Friday after all.  And for us it’s the day to look for ways to give back or pay it forward.  What will you do today to cause a ripple?  I rarely know what I will do for an extra good deed when I wake up, butContinue reading “And Friday is back!”

Bleach gives texture

Sometimes it’s not more ink that you need.  Sometimes it’s less paper.  Bleach, while not great for your stamps, has an awesome affect on your cardstock.  You can create your own ink pad with a paper plate and some paper towels.  Make the paper towel damp with bleach.  (It is best to have a paperContinue reading “Bleach gives texture”

How to stay consistent with punching

When you look at your products sometimes you need to look upside down and sideways.  Did you know a circle punch can create a scalloped border?  A pair of sunglasses becomes a mustache?  I’m sure there are plenty more but you get the idea.

Bits and pieces from the office and the studio

I know you probably think that crafting only happens in the studio.  But, it doesn’t.  It happens everywhere.  While you are at the grocery store a color on your soap could make you want to create.  Or, in this case, a simple notepad. I’ve been doing quite a bit of back to school shopping andContinue reading “Bits and pieces from the office and the studio”

And we are back to Friday again!

This week has gone so fast I can’t believe it.  And I have to admit that I didn’t get my card or cards mailed last week.  So today I already have one mailed off and I am working on a bunch of thank you cards.  Who do you need to take note of today?  IsContinue reading “And we are back to Friday again!”

Techniques can make a card

As I was having fun with Facebook Live last night I realized how much the little things matter.  I had missed the trash can and grumbled about how much effort would be spent picking up what didn’t want to go in.  Last night’s card was proof of that.  The little bit of glue to makeContinue reading “Techniques can make a card”
