Snowflakes aren’t just for Christmas.

The Swirly Snowflakes can be used for more than just Christmas.  The border framelit can be used for a great edge to create just about any type of card.  In this case it is for a wedding. Play with this set and take photos of your creations. Happy Crafting! With inky fingers, Joni 🙂

How to emboss on foil cardstock.

Thinking and doing…

Today is the day we focus on giving back or paying it forward.  I want you to think about something…what is the difference between thinking and doing?  One is internal and the other is external.  One involves something that happens passively and the other requires action.  I want to encourage you today to act onContinue reading “Thinking and doing…”

The link for the video is if you would like to see this card being created. Here aContinue reading “Heavy metal without your ears hurting.”

Not everything that happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.  After much processing and research I have an idea.  There is a fellow crafter that is collecting cards for the families of the victims.  I will be sending a box of cards to her on October 16th.  If you would like to participate please drop offContinue reading “What happens in Vegas…”

It’s Friday!!!

Today’s the day I think more consciously about giving back.  I know we should be doing this every day but Fridays are focused on this (for me).  I hope I touch the ones closest to me on a regular basis.  But today I thought I would do a search for “how to send a card”Continue reading “It’s Friday!!!”
