Washi Tape Shaker Window

Hi crafty people, hope you are having great fall!

Today's project is actually a technique experiment. I am going to add some color and pattern to a clear shaker window using washi tapes. Washi tape is a very unique material - it's a really thin paper that is semi-transparent (especially the light colored one). So adding it to acetate will result in creating patterned areas that you can still see the sequins through.

Watch the video tutorial below where I am demonstrating the entire process step by step! Thanks for visiting!

WHITE CHRISTMAS 2018 - DAY 7 - Silent Night 3D Card

Hi there and welcome to the DAY 7 of WHITE CHRISTMAS tutorial series!

Today I am going to make just another 3D card. They are so addicting! I really like combining 3D card bases by Becca Feeken with Memory Box layering dies. Those dies are fun to use on their own, but the moment you see flat die cuts turning into a 3D scene is so satisfying! 

As always, you can find a full step by step VIDEO guide as well as the supply list down below this post.

Walking with the Dog

Hi there! Today is a big day for me because I have finally overcome my fear of mixed media and created my first ever scrapbook layout. Although I have to mention that I could only overcome this fear by avoiding using any messy techniques like painting, spraying and even stenciling and stamping. 

All I did is I prepared some die cuts and then played with them moving and shuffling them all around the sheet of A4 size plain card. Only when I was happy with their placement I stuck them down. That's it! This technique is so extremely forgiving! You can change your mind at any moment without ruining what you have already created.

If you would like to know more about this project watch the video tutorial and I will walk you through the entire creative process!

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a beautiful autumn weekend!
