Hi there everyone! I am dropping by with a quick project I created with my husband on his 3D printer. The project is meant for my stamping purposes *grin*.
I do quite much stamping and use a stamping tool (similar to Misti) quite much. I got this tool while I was on a design team a few years ago and what I was missing were magnetic stamp corners. This way I can stamp repeatedly on exactly the same spot, when making a series of identical cards.
So I asked hubs to help me out with his cool 3D printer :). As a result I now have DIY stamp corners for this stamping tool. I even made a short video about the process – hope you like it! All the tech info is available on my YouTube channel – just see the description part of this video.
I already have further ideas swirling in my head that could be made using his 3D printer :D… so stay tuned for more projects to come *giggle*. But don´t tell him quite yet… we don´t want to stress him beforehand…
Hello there everyone and happy Tuesday! I felt very honored when Elizabeth Craft Designs contacted me and asked if I´d like to continue as a guest blogger at their blog on a bi-monthly basis this year. It is a pleasure for me to do so, as I really like their product! So today I am sharing my first project tutorial with you over at their blog. This is what I created:
A love-themed card and present box set, using mainly Joset Designs dies and some ModaScrap papers. Both the drinking jar as well as the flamingos were white in the beginning, believe it or not! I´ve colored them with Distress Inks and an ink blending tool.
If you would like to read more about this project, hop over to the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog. There is also a PROCESS VIDEOfor you to watch – hope you like it and get inspired to create something fun yourself!!!
So you will be seeing more projects, created with Elizabeth Craft Designs product, here on my blog throughout the year. I am very happy to be able to be part of the ECD family also this year. See you with more inspirational posts in April again!!

Hello everbody and welcome to the Canvas Corp Brands Crew Member Fall themed MEGA BLOG HOP! There are plenty of fantastic designersworld wide that have come together to showcase terrific fall projects that you can recreate and put your own artistic touches on in your craft room.
My take for the FALL BLOG HOP is a Tattered Angels Color Wash Paint treated wooden wreath created to decorate our front door. I have created a spring wreath a while back, so I figured, it would be also nice to have one in a fall theme, created with the great Canvas Corp Brands products.
So what is Color Wash Paint, actually? It´s a multi-surface, water-based, one-step paint with a hint of mica in it. It´s perfect for natural surfaces and the best part is, it´s odorless!!! It´s so easy to use and apply (no priming or sanding needed!!) So it´s the perfect paint for all kinds of home décor projects. And did I mention it is really easy to clean too? Just needs some soap and water to clean your working surface afterwords.
And here is the finished wreath, hanging on our front door.
I just love the little frosted mushrooms – they are sooo cute!
I used five tones of color wash paint to paint the wreat into fall colors, then added some ribbons and leaves as well as frosted mushrooms to decorate. This project is literally done in no time!!! I´ve recorded a short video to give you an idea on the simple steps to create this project – hope you like it!

Hello there, lovelies! A little while back I altered/repurposed a perfume box into a altered wedding gift box. I love altering all kinds of boxes that come with for example perfumes, shoes, jewellery and so on. They become a new life and can be given away as present packaging or altered small drawers that withhold all kinds of tiny treasures.
I have several in my craft area that I have altered and filled with beautiful ribbons, for example. This particular one is going to withhold a wedding present and hopefully can be used over and over again by the newlyweds for something else in the future.
Here are the steps to how I altered the box:
First mix the Tattered AngelsDecor & DIY paint tones white and red together. I mixed the white and the red one in a ratio of one part white & two parts red. That created this beatuful pink color. The great thing about this paint is that you don’t need to pretreat the box in any way (no sanding etc. needed) – just paint! I have attached tiny wooden “feet” to the box and also painted those the same color.
Next, I cut two sheets of the pink patterned paper into a suitable size and rounded the corners with a Corner Chomper tool. The paper is adhered to the box with decoupage adhesive. I’ve also treated the surface of the paper with the same adhesive to make it more durable.
After creating the base, I only needed to add decoration to the box lid, so I adhered a paper doilie with decoupage adhesive in its place. Then I added glitter paste and Inka Gold (in pink) through stencil onto the lid. After they were dry, I adhered some paper roses and chipboard pieces around the doily in two areas. The paper roses as well as the chipboard got a Pink Poodle Glimmer Mist treatment with a water tank brush. That added a nice shimmer to them and also created a little more depth to the flowers. Finally I added some liquid pearls, glitter glue and a gold sprayed drawerknob into the middle and some velvet as well as sequin ribbon around the edges for additional interest. The ribbons finish off the look of this box.
I´ve also created a little walk-through video of this box, if you would like to take a better look at it.
I hope you enjoyed this little altered project idea!!
