Cozy Halloween Frame

Hello and welcome back!

The time has come for the first Halloween project this year. I love the idea of cute and cozy Halloween rather than super spooky one (some things do scare me a lot!). So this is what I came up with - dark and mysterious but very warm, cozy and sweet.

To create this mini wall hanging I have used some Poppystamps dies along with some mixed media products like cork sheets and crackle glaze. Watch the video tutorial below for step by step instructions!

I hope you enjoy and have a wonderful weekend!

Silver Rose

Hi there, I hope your Wednesday is going on great.

I know that Christmas is in our minds already but the summer is still here and I don't want to let go of it. So here they come - roses and butterflies!

To create this card I have used some Memory Box dies as well as some Tonic Studios specialty cardstocks. The video tutorial and the supply list are down below this post as always!

Gingerbread / Cookie Holder with Tonic Craft Kit #13

Hi crafty friends, 

Today's project is all about stretching your dies to get more of them than was initially intended. This time I am using the products from Tonic Studios Craft Kit #13.

The die set included in the kit is meant to create a gift card holder plus a matching box. I am going to demonstrate how - with minimum effort! - you can transform it into a favor box to put a gingerbread or a cookie into. 

Those favor boxes are super easy to make and are perfect for mass production. Watch the video below for step by step instructions!

Sunflower Medallion Card

Hi, hope you are having a wonderful summer!

It is sunflower season and I couldn't help including this theme into one of my projects! I used Dazzler layering set by Birch press design to create a medallion in sunflower colors. To make layered die cut borders I used a pair of matching hexagon border dies by Poppystamps. They remind me of honeycombs and what can be greater than sunflowers and honeycombs together?

Please scroll down for some close ups of the project as well as a video tutorial!

DIY Pins / Badges

Hi crafty friends, 

I am happy to get back from my vacation to my crafting supplies and set to work!

Today I would like to suggest you a new fun way to re-purpose your small dies - and that is to create some DIY jewelry. In the video tutorial below I'll show you how I made some DIY pins (or badges) that would work great both for fall and winter.

I have used some whittle style dies from the latest Holiday release by Poppystamps. Also - you can either add some glazing to the pins or leave them as they are. More info in the video down below!

Thanks for visiting and have a great crafty week!
