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…

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.

Going batty with Catherine Pooler

Going Batty with Catherine Pooler

Trust me, I am definitely going batty over this release. Halloween is my favorite (if you haven’t figured that out yet…) and I had so much fun playing with this release. I thought that this release needs to be featured in the right light (see where I’m going with this? 😉 ) and that’s why I had to pull out the Glow int the Dark embossing powder. And as you will see throughout the hop, the Creative Team has a thing for it. I created two cards for the hop. One that features the glow in the dark embossing powder…

Just for fun blog hop

Welcome to a blog hop, just for fun. Ingrid pulled together a few crafters and asked us to create with “new” craft supplies, the ones that have been laying around for a while now, unused. And you know what I haven’t done in a while? Creating clean and simple cards, without any mess. Ok, there was a little mess involved when I inked up a background, but way less than normally 😉 I bought some of the stamps from Finders Keepers a while back. I discovered them at Creativation and fell in love with the very different designs and sentiments.…

I told you that I love this release, right?
