Art Recipe: Quick bible journal spread using Catherine Pooler stamps

Art Recipe: Quick bible journal spread using Catherine Pooler stamps

Hi everyone. You might have seen that the name of my blog changed a bit. I wanted to combine the projects I share for my store The Maker Deli with all my other projects and have just one website for all the fun. Speaking of fun, I received some new stamps from Catherine Pooler for the store and finally, I had some time to play with one set of them. It had a great bible verse, so I finally decided to start journaling in my bible. To prepare the journaling part of the page, I used Golden Absorbent Ground. Just…

Guest designing for Rita Barakat

Guest designing for Rita

Oh my gosh, I can’t even. I’m so excited about this post and have been for a couple of weeks. Rita asked me if I would want to guest design for her and of course, I had to say yes! If you have been following me for a while you’ve seen me using her embossing powder and ArtFoamies and I love them. For this post, she sent me a special package with three stencils. All of those stencils have a face pattern and I’m not going to lie… I had a short “yikes” moment. Not because of the designs (I…

Art Recipe: Weekly spread in my Canvo bullet journal

The Maker Deli - Weekly spread in my Canvo bullet journal

Time for some “just for fun” projects, yay! I wanted to play in my Canvo bullet journal a bit, so I decided to create my weekly spread while testing some new supplies. I also used a variety of stamps and stencils that are perfect for bullet journaling from my store The Maker Deli. Thankfully, I remembered to put up my camera, so here’s a quick video showing how the bullet journal spread came together. Not one of my fanciest projects, but I definitely had fun. At the end, I actually liked that page. Nothing flashy or exciting, but some settle…

Video collaboration with Justine Hovey - Distress Oxide Techniques

Hey and welcome to my blog. Today is all about Distress Oxides. Justine Hovey, one of my favorite crafty friends, organized a massive collaboration throughout the month of April and she got together with a variety of crafters to share techniques, new products and fun ideas around card making. The collaboration between her and myself is all about Distress Oxides and ideas for what you can do with them. Her techniques are a bit more “clean and simple” compared to mine. I just had to showcase some messy ones 🙂 Check out my video for 4 mixed media Distress Oxide…

StencilGirl collaboration – ReSketch Journal

Stencilgirl colaboration with resketch journals

Hi everyone and welcome to a super fun collaboration with StencilGirl, organized by the amazing Tina Walker. Tina came up with the idea to finish a journal using only one color. For the journals we used resketch journals. These are a bit different as they use reclaimed paper, which sometimes already has a pattern on it. I had a hard time choosing a color and went back and forth between greens, blues, and so on. At the end, I picked orange because this was the color where I had the most paint tubes and ink sprays from. I’m thrilled that…

Creative freedom using herbs and ArtFoamies

Creative freedom using herbs and ArtFoamies

Last month was my husband’s birthday. I’m always struggling with finding a good present, especially since we usually just buy what we want. So, I wanted to make something for him and decided to create some cooking themes ATCs. These ATCs have been a journey though. I started with a set of colors that didn’t turn out the way I was hoping and then I went all sorts of crazy. Follow me on my creative journey in this quick video. Fancy, right? Eventhough these ATCs went in all sorts of directions, I had a blast – and that’s what it…

ATCs made from left overs with Tonic Studio

ATCs made from left overs with Tonic Studio

During my last project, I used one of the background dies to create a stencil. That stencil ended up looking really cool. So, I decided to use it for my next project – surprise, it’s this one 😉 I made two ATCs and totally enjoyed the process. The left over stencil also fits very well to them, don’t you think? Thanks so much for stopping by 🙂 I hope you enjoyed my little project today. Supplies Used Some of my links are affiliate links which means I earn a small commission, if you use my links to shop.

Mail art with PaperArtsy

Mail art with PaperArtsy

This was an exciting topic from PaperArtsy. Mail art – I have never attempted mail art before. Or at least not really. doodles don’t count 😉 For this topic, I used Sara Naumann’s new set. The grungy bird silhouettes seemd to fit very well. I also combined it with an older stencil from Darcy. But see for yourself. Have you tried mail art before? If so, I’d love to see your projects.
