Quick and easy cards

By: Chris M Herrmann We all like quick and easy cards especially around the holidays.  I get so busy with things that  I don’t want to spend a lot of time creating cards for birthdays, anniversaries, special events, etc. so I make up a batch of “go to items” that I can just grab, cut […]

A Reflection

I don’t know about you, but September rolls around faster every year for me. When the kids go back to school, I like to take time to reflect about the summer and plan toward the holidays that I know will sneak up on me. This year, however, school started in August, so I’m a bit […]

Rubbadubbadoo Rubber Stamps: Stephanie’s view

Back to Basics

Y2K plus 10. Remember the madness that accompanied the dawn of the 21st century? People stocked up on bottled water and canned foods, gathered family close around, and waited for…nothing. All the talk of a cyber-meltdown and disaster proved to be all hot air speculation. However, in the ten years since, the mood and the […]

Holiday Blizzard Project – Autumn Leaves Pencil Cup

Welcome Autumn and Happy Thanksgiving!  As a certified custom framer working at Michaels Arts and Crafts, I see a lot of frames.  Some made of wood, metal and even acrylic (such as those box frames).   I can’t tell you how many times I’ve restocked the little swivel photo pencil cups and never gave any thought […]

When it rains…

…it pours! And it POURED  here in the Atlanta area recently! The climatologists called it a “100 year event” with good reason. I had my own waterfall running from my backyard, through the gate, and down the retaining wall into the neighbor’s driveway. Eventually the wall gave out from the deluge, but no real damage–just a […]

Easy Collage Card for the Adventurer

By: Melanie Smith, Artistic Guide Finished Size: 4.25″ x 5.5″ This card was inspired by the grapes that grow in the beautiful Hawkes Bay region where I live.  There are vineyards absolutely everywhere – even on the former site of our local 1/4 mile drag strip (much to my husband’s dismay).  But so many people […]

Sweet Memory

September in the USA used to mean back-to-school. Children put on new fall clothes, gathered pencils and papers, packed lunches in brown bags or metal lunchboxes, and planned out the strategies for recess. Things have certainly changed in the last 30 years since I attended elementary school. School starts for many while the sun is […]

Black and White Flower Card for the Discoverer

By: Michael A. Trent, Artistic Guide  Finished card size:6.5” x 5”  Something else I enjoy doing when using black and white images, papers, etc.  is to add just a dash of color to a project that is 99% black and white.  In this project the emphasis is black and white but I added some color […]
