HELLO SUMMER! Hey everyone, – Cathie Allan here – thought I would share with you a totally fun and easy card that you can create in the wee hours of the morning. Why? … in the “wee hours of the morning?” ….. well, because, it is May 23rd and it is behaving like summer outside so we NEED to spend “some” of our “crafting time” in our gardens and on our deck.   I used totally “doable” stamping techniques to  create a fun, shape card that “wanted to be a slider card”.  The background was simply stamped using a wonderful solid, daisy stamp from Impression Obsession and two fabulous pigment colors from Clearsnap. Since it was pigment ink, I was able to stamp the darker, Antique Pewter images first and then stamp the lighter, Buttercup images on top of the dark color.  Pigment ink allows me to do this and I…

Hey Crafters, Nicole Wright here and I’m back to share my love for industrial crafting.  With the new Sizzix  Gears available I decided to haul out my Sizzix Gadget Gears die (I believe the first Sizzix die I ever bought) and have a little fun experimenting with my embossing powders and distress crayons. I cut a set of Gadget Gears with Sizzix Little Sizzles White Mat Board.  I heat embossed a coat of Emerald Creek Craft Supplies Era Hammered Metal Embossing Powder.  This thick powder leaves open spots to add color.  I wanted to see if the distress crayons would work to create a weathered patina on the gears. On the set of gears I used Ranger distress crayons vintage photo, mermaid lagoon, peacock feathers and peeled paint.  The distress crayons fill in the areas the thick embossing powders don’t.  Once the colors are filled in I used a baby wipe to remove…

Mini Cake-Topper Banner Featuring Spellbinders It’s never been easier to create a custom party suite using the new Spellbinders ® Prizm™ die-cutting machine and Die D-lites® die templates. The mini cake-topper banner is a cinch to make using the Party Banners die. After die-cutting, simply hot glue to twine and embellish with die-cut flowers and small jewels.

Hi there, Connie Nichol here with a scrapbook page featuring the CTMH Stuck on You stamps and matching thin cuts metal dies. The Stuck on You sets are available in the CTMH seasonal catalogue, but only until April 30, so grab them now before they are gone forever.  The stamps are so darn cute and the matching dies make it so easy to create a whole forest of cacti.  Use them to make a lovely card, or embellish a scrapbook layout.  The cacti are perfect for accenting any photos from a desert location, and I was lucky enough to travel to Phoenix for a few days last year.  I might have taken a few (i.e. hundreds) of photographs at the Desert Botanical Garden when I was there.  I was so happy to see this roadrunner.  Such a neat looking bird.  Unfortunately for me, the roadrunner song from Bugs Bunny and Wile E…

Entering the Heartfelt Creations booth at CHA is like walking into a flower garden! The newest release is “Sugar Hollow” featuring the cutest little owl. As per other Heartfelt Creations collections, Sugar Hollow products include paper packs, stamps and die sets. The projects on display for Sugar Hollow were so sweet.

Walking into the Sizzix booth, my heart pounds with excitement…the displays always impress! Although Sizzix is branching out into the fabric industry, the focus is paper crafting. Along with embossing folders, Sizzix is probably most well-known for dies and die cutting. The Tim Holtz “Alterations” line is still very popular. There is a new Vagabond 2, the electronic version of a Big Shot. Accompanying the Vagabond 2 are new tools and products, even storage cases for embossing folders and dies. The Big Shot has a new friend! A storage caddy! It fits on the side and attaches to the Big Shot. We all like to stay organized and this caddy will surely help! Sizzix has also released patterned paper pads that fit perfectly through the Big Shot and Vagabond without cutting down to size. Cutting pads are now in 4 different colours…so you can’t lose them on your studio desk…
