I am a wife, mom,& grandma. I have always had a passion for crafts. I am so glad that I'm able to share my talents with others.
I have a true passion for crafts whether it be paper, stamps or just anything with sparkle.
Trying to make cards with my stash (hoard) you know sometimes it is so hard to use what you have cause it might be the only one and you don't want to get rid of it. But I have decided it was meant to be used and not hoarded, so Im gonna really try to use my stash then that will give me a reason to buy more. Enjoy the cards, I have had fun actually sitting and crafting the last few days.
If you are like me when you find a piece that you like and you use it to make several cards, or altered items and you get to the last one you never seem to want to use that last one. I have found away so that is not a problem any longer. I used amazing putty can be purchased at Michaels, or Hobby Lobby, not sure if AC Moore carries it. It is pricey about $20 for the box but so worth it, just use those coupons. This stuff turns too a rubber silicone mold in minutes. After placing your image in the clay it will need to set like 20-30 minutes in there after you pop it out and you have a mold of your favorite item. Use can use the sculpey clay in colors or just use white and then paint your item with acrylic paint. They are super lite so weight wont be an issue for your card making. Enjoy the video and don't fret about that being your last item you can make as many as you want now with this wonderful product. Thanks for watching.
Here I used a lot of the Tim Holtz dies that my friend Lorraine had and myself and made my own stamps. I used the thick fun foam and some plexiglass. These turned out so great as this was my first time making my own stamps. So now if I don't have the die I can still use the image on my projects. Thanks for watching the video and check me out on youtube under Scrapngigi if you are interested in seeing more of my videos.
This card was quite fun to make using one of the prima doll stamps. Was done with the wizard of oz theme. Used several different embellishments from recollections trim, lace, stick pins, flowers, paper doilies, box pleated trim, paper roses, ribbon roses. Thanks for looking.
I got a wonderful chunky charm from my friend Lorraine, and lots of other goodies too. Did some shopping, which I seem to do more of lately than crafting. Added to my collection of milk glass and also made a Halloween card. The Halloween card is a chipboard card and this is a great way to use up all that chipboard that you have in different shapes. I know I have lots of the books that I have never gotten around to making so this way you can make some awesome cards. Thanks for looking today sorry it has been so long since I posted. I have been stalking youtube videos. If you are interested in seeing all my videos please ccheck me out as Scrapngigi on youtube. Would love to have more followers there too.
Sorry it has been awhile since I have posted but I have been spending time with my family in Fl and the grandkids came home with me for 3 weeks. I sure have missed my crafting but have been making up for it with shopping. So here are a couple of shopping hauls that I have done. Enjoy and feel free to hop over to my youtube channel Scrapngigi for more videos. Have a great summer and I will be back to crafting very soon as I miss it so much.
Used my cameo today to make a split letter A, this was my first attempt at this, I think for the first one it turned out pretty good. There is a few flaws in this one as my transfer paper was not what normally use. I used the letter A from the Regal font which is from the www.Fontspace.com/Aldus/regal. Thanks for looking hoping to get the hang of this and be able to make more of these. Thanks for looking.
This was made with a kit from Archivers that I had purchased awhile back. Finally decided to use some of the things that I already have on hand. I really enjoyed making this super easy book. I have seen so many talented people making the envelope, filefolder and tag books that I thought it was time I tried my hand at making one. This one is gonna be a gift but I do plan on making more as once you start you just cant stop making them they can be made for so many different occasions. Thanks for watching the video. Love hearing from each and every one of my followers.
