Dreamer of dreams art journal page for Viva Las Vegastamps

Art journal for viva las vegastamps

Hi everyone, I’m super excited to share my very first project for the Viva Las VegaStamps! design team with you – a dreamer of dreams art journal page. Yay. Check out the video here: First of all, I totally love the new Seth Apter spray. The color is just awesome. Perfect for the dreamer of dreams 😉 Half way through the process I thought that I need a moon too – you know, sun, moon and stars – but decided against it. I think that was a good idea, lol. I hope you enjoyed the video and my art journal…

A mixed media tag for PaperArtsy – Spring has returned

Spring has returned - A mixed media tag for PaperArtsy

Hello, hello, I’m excited to share a mixed media tag for PaperArtsy with you. The theme this time is “Spring”, which was perfect since I love all the spring colors – especially the softer ones (not pastells though, lol). For this tag, I used one of the new Gwen Lafleur stamps, two of the new paints from Seth Apter, and a bunch of other goodness. But check it out for yourself: What do you think? Did I get the spring colors right on this mixed media tag? I definitely had fun playing with those fun patterns from Gwen’s new set.…

A mini Christmas art journal

A Christmas collaboration with DeeDee Catron

Hello everyone, welcome to a fun Christmas video. I made a mini Christmas art journal out of one sheet of paper for this Christmas “special”. These types of journals are my favorite, as they don’t need much time to be put together and you don’t need to sew anything. But see for yourself: I hope you enjoyed my loooong video for the Christmas art journal. Let me know if this length is okay, or if I should avoid 20+ minutes going forward, lol. Thanks so much for stopping by and for your support throughout the year(s). It really means a…

The Maker Deli Art Recipe: Decorating a canvas bag with ArtFoamies

The Maker Deli Art Recipe: Decorating a canvas bag with ArtFoamies

Hi and welcome back to the blog. Today’s Art Recipe for my store The Maker Deli is super simple. I decorated a canvas bag that I found at Michael’s for just a few bugs using some ArtFoamies. As you can see in the video you don’t need much and it just takes a few minutes. The result? A super unique canvas bag for your art supplies (or whatever else you want to put in it). I love these colors. Next time I might mix it up a bit more, maybe adding a blue to the mix. Supplies used

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…

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 Oxides Techniques

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…
