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. When you punch for the border, for example, you want yourContinue reading “How to stay consistent with punching”

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”

Mondays are amazing

From the title I bet you think that I have lost it.  Well, Mondays are amazing.  We’ve been able to create at least some of the weekend and Mondays I am here for you!  Drop in and get questions answered on the project you couldn’t figure out.  Ask about a new product.  Or simply comeContinue reading “Mondays are amazing”

It’s a day to rest…

It’s Sunday and my day to rest.  I’m not sure if this is your day but I hope you have a day blocked off to have some fun or to re-charge.  So what do you do to breathe?  Do you read a book, go hiking, jump in the car…?  Comment below with what helps youContinue reading “It’s a day to rest…”

Sales, Classes, and More!

It’s Saturday and hopefully you are able to take a second and enjoy that coffee instead of gulping it down as you run out the door.  With school starting soon the hustle and bustle will be back and running full force.  So take a moment to sit down and create.  Get that page ready forContinue reading “Sales, Classes, and More!”

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”

Enamel dots are not just for projects

Do you have a hard time finding out what color is what in your re-inker bottles?  Mine are all stacked up and I often can’t read the side.  Or I have had to wipe the side of the bottle (because we had too much fun) and now the label isn’t all there.  Here’s an ideaContinue reading “Enamel dots are not just for projects”

Stamping is not just for paper

Stamping is for so much more than just paper.  You can stamp on glass, wood, plastic, and more.  Imagine a surface and you can stamp on it.  So, for today’s tutorial I want to talk about shrinky dinks.  You remember, right?  Those little things that got stuck in the vacuum and you loved as aContinue reading “Stamping is not just for paper”

Card Class and More

This week is something I look forward to.  Do you?  All of the preparation is done for Card Class and now I can enjoy the best part, you.  I don’t enjoy the hours of coming up with ideas, creating, designing, and preparing.  But I love seeing your smiling faces and the joy that creating bringsContinue reading “Card Class and More”
