Craft Room Organization – What Is In My Craft Room 2016?

Craft Room Organization

Hello there, Today I made a YouTube video showing how my craft room is setup and how I organize things. It’s a rather quick walk-through, so if you are interested in any of my storage ideas just let me know. I can always create separate videos and/ or blog articles describing how I setup my stuff. With no further ado, here is my craft room organization video: Just in case you are interested in the ArtBin storage I was talking about, here is some more information on them: ArtBin Homepage. I just wanted to mention again that I’m not related …

Can Winter be Over Already?

Can winter be over already

Happy New Year everyone! I’m sorry that I didn’t write anything the last weeks, but my hubby and I were busy moving. We bought a house at the end of the year and after a long, stressful journey with the bank we finally moved on December 23rd. You can imagine that our Christmas was filled with unpacking and getting everything setup. But I’m back and my New Years resolution is to be more crafty πŸ™‚ I have no idea how to proof at the end that I was, but just lets get started with my first card for 2016. Who …

Four Christmas Tags and One Card

Christmas Tags

Well hello there! Today is one of those days where I actually didn’t feel the urge to craft something. But I decided to just sit on my desk and do something. And here is what came out of it: A lot of Christmas Tags πŸ™‚ Tag One I started with a simple Hanukkah gift tag. I used Lawn Fawn’s “I love you a Latke” and colored it with Copic’s. Tag Two The second tag is featuring the bear from Greeting Farm “Let it Snow”. Again, I simply stamped the bear and colored it with Copic’s (the shadow inside the bear …

Quick Hanukkah Card for a White Elephant gift exchange

Hanukkah Card

Today I’d like to share a quick Hanukkah Card with you that is part of a White Elephant gift exchange at work. I used the new Lawn Fawn stamp set Love you a Latke that I got during a Black Friday Sale on Hallmarkscrapbook.com. I stamped the Menorah with Versamark Ink on some watercolor paper and heat embossed it with Wow Silver Metallic embossing powder. Now I used a Zig Clean Color Real Brush in the color Cobalt Blue and colored around the embossing. To get the watercolor look, I added a lot of water to it, turned the paper …

Happy Lawn Fawn Thanksgiving

Happy Lawn Fawn Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving! I made this card a few days ago, but I thought it might make sense to share it today πŸ˜‰ This card features a bunch of Lawn Fawn stamps: Thankful Mice, Holiday Party Animal, Happy Harvest, and Owen’s ABC; the inks Pumpkin Spice, Simon Says Duckling, and Sunkist for the letters and corn; and Fossilized Amber and Ground Espresso for the background. I started with blending the background and stamping the corn in the three different inks. I tried to keep the colors as close together as possible. This way it has a slight effect of dimension (at …

It’s the most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Close Up Wink of Stella

Just recently I ordered the most adorable MFT Christmas stamp set Merry Christmoose. Isn’t that moose just cute? So I had to create a card the is perfect for the most wonderful time of the year. I started with preparing the background. I cut out a piece of light blue cardstock that I got with one of my Simon Says Card Kits. I used the sentiment from MFT’s Trim the Tree set and stamped with Cornflower. Before I started with the snowflakes, I masked the sentiment with some post it tape. Now I used two of the snowflakes from Snowflake …

1st Try Molotow Masking Pen on Watercolor Paper

Scare Crow in Pumpkin Patch

Hello and welcome back. Today I have another review of a new product (at least for me). Soooo many people are talking about the Molotow masking pen and today I finally used it. I got it at Hobby Lobby with their 40% off coupon (still kind of pricey). I wanted to create a pumpkin patch. Even though Halloween already passed, we still have fall πŸ˜‰ I checked some “How-To’s” and started stamping the pumpkins on Ranger water color paper using Memento black dye-ink. I learned that I had to stamp the top images first, mask them and stamp the next …

Review: Making a Shaker Card with the Fuse Tool

2nd Fuse Tool card

Hi everybody, in my last post I promised a review for the fuse tool and the Minc toner ink pen. Today I will tell you more about the fuse tool. I bought the Project Life version at Michael’s with a 50% coupon, but from what I understand it’s exactly the same as the one from We R Memory Keepers. Here the two cards I made so far: How to operate the Fuse Tool The Fuse Tool just needs power and a little time to heat up. As soon as the tip is hot enough you can run it over acetate …

Review : Art-C The Groove Blending Machine & Mini Haul

The Groove Tool

Hello everyone! I was a little shopping at Hobby Lobby and Michael’s today and bought some add-ons for my way too small stash of paper crafting tools (not…). One of the items I ran over by accident is the ‘groove’ tool from Art-C. I’m always a little skeptic with tools I haven’t seen or heard anything about before. But it was $20 and with the regular Hobby Lobby 40% off coupon even better. The packaging says that it is perfect for mixed media projects. It looks a little bit like my face cleanser brush, but the heads are totally different …
