This must be the place – A project for Nathalie Kalbach

This must be the place Nathalie Kalbach

Do you want to hear the story of this tag? Then read till the end 😉 I started with a mono printed background. I used a 5×7 Gel Press and added several colors of PaperArtsy paint on top. The second layer uses the same technique, but in a slightly different way. This time I used one of the Petite Gel Press plates and…

Why mono printing with the Gel Press is so addicting

Hi there! Last week I uploaded a video with a few cards that I created using the Gel Press.

Yes, I had a lot of fun that day! My floor was full of Gel…

I have some exciting news for you: I’m now part of the Emerald Creek design team 😀 I’m super excited about that!

How to decorate your deflecto Caddy Organizer with Gel Press prints

Happy Monday everyone! Over the weekend I decided to do a little spring cleaning in my craft room. I reorganized a few things and added some stamps to my destash site. One of the items that got a new purpose was my Deflecto Caddy Organizer. Before, I used them for some of my tools which meant that I couldn’t close the lids entirely. Now I have all of my cheap Distress Paints and the Finnabair Metallic and Opal paints in there. These fit perfectly and while I was moving them into their new space, I thought that the caddy needs…
