If you like to create hand made cards for the holidays, an easy tip to prepare is to make a variety of backgrounds on blank notecards. You can then add a quick sentiment and you have a card ready to hand out or mail.
For those of us still stuck in the deep freeze of winter, crafting can be a nice way to spend a cold afternoon. Why not make a few cute greetings for friends and family? For today’s project, I have a sweet little snow-themed card using some products from Echo Park’s Celebrate Winter collection.
Do you have a friend or loved one that lives far away? What a perfect opportunity to send a handwritten note to say hello. Sure, emails and texts are definitely quicker, but the old-fashioned elegance of sitting down to write cannot compare.
I love making tags almost as much as cards. They’re quick to make and you can still use all your fun scrapbook and stamping supplies—just on a smaller scale! Halloween is always a fun time for tags because of all the fun candy treats you can attach them to. In today’s post I show you ways to use up those piles of “googly” eyes you may have hiding in your craft room. I know I have a ton and they seem to multiply.

I love glitter not only for its sparkle, but also for all the fun color options that are available. For my project today, I’m using some neon colored glitters along with a pretty stencil from Echo Park called Classy Fan. I’ll be adhering the glitter using translucent embossing paste. It’s perfect, because it’s clear and acts as a really strong glue for all that gorgeous glitter.

Lately, I’ve been breaking out some older stencils and experimenting with ombre ink blending. This is my comfort zone as far as mixed media is concerned, LOL! I love the smooth look of the blended colors. For this project, I used my Kaleidacolor ink pads along with the Daisy Flower Cluster stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop for even more color variation.
