Use Your Dies to Create and Sentiment Block

Monday, October 24, 2016
Hi crafters! Monica here sharing my next October project for Joy Clair stamps and I am proud to say I am using this awesome stamp set called "Away in the Manager" a beautiful stamp set for Bible Journaling and Joy Clair has the "Color by Faith" group on Facebook so be sure to check it out.  Christmas!  MY favorite holiday for sure is right around the corner and this set is perfect for those Christmas cards. Although here in Florida lately it seems to be 80 degrees on Christmas day so it does not quite feel Christmaseeee..
On to the card I made.  I stamped the image on X-Press IT paper and used a die from Spellbinders as well as Gina's Design dies for the card front.  I added some Stickles to the baby cover to brighten it up.
 I colored the image with Copics and used Memento ink in black to stamp the image onto the paper.  I stamped the sentiment on a sort of snow bank die and used it for the bottom portion of the card.
  • Baby: E000, E00, E11, R56
  • Clothes/Crib: B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, E30, E31, E37, E79
Here is a closer look of the card.  I hope everyone enjoyed my post for today and thanks for stopping by.  Below you will find all the links where you can see more inspiration from the Joy Clair design team.  Happy Holiday!!!

Hi crafters! Monica here sharing a card I made using "Flip Flops" which is new release from Dare 2B Artzy.  A super fun set that comes with summer images and fun summer sentiments.

Mixed Media On-the-Go

It's time to get organized with Stackable Caddy Organizer from Deflecto.  With so many new products on the market it is almost impossible to keep them all organized.  I was storing all my different kinds of ink in one storage tub that I bought from Walmart. I thought I had solved my organization problems..... until you popped open the lid and this is what you saw.  How horrible is it to find something in this heap of a mess on top of things spilling. 

Now this is my BEFORE 
and hip hip hooray this is my AFTER!!

What a huge difference right?!!

I finally can store all my sponge daubers in one nice container no more messy fuss!

I like to think of this as my mixed media on-the-go caddy!

Layering Dies for Different Looks

Saturday, October 15, 2016
Hi crafters! Monica here today sharing my next project ofr Tutti Designs.  I am using this Pop Out Flower Corner die to make this card.
I used some blue and silver foil paper to make this card.  I then embossed the white cardstock so the die popped off the page.  I also used some of the silver foil paper to fill in various sections of the die.

 A closer look at how the sections I filled in on the card. Here the die is cut and I filled in some sections.  The photo below the die is layered in the blue and silver foiled paper.  I then laid it on top of one another but sort of staggered it so you can see the blue foil peeking out.

It adds a nice touch to it.  Least I think so right??!!
I hope everyone enjoyed my post and be sure to check out all of the Tutti links below for updated information, inspirations and giveaways.

Breast Cancer - Desktop Calendar Frame

Friday, October 14, 2016

Hi crafters! Simply Monica here with my 1st official Deflecto Crafts project.  This project goes out to all those amazing women who are survivors and what a better way to remember and never forget than to take your Deflecto Pink Craft Frame and turn it into a desktop easel calendar.

I took a mini calendar and adhered it to a piece of black cardstock so that the calendar was a bit more sturdy.  Then I found some round magnets and added a sticker to the top magnet that says "Faith" which is perfect!  What is nice is that the magnet slides on the acrylic frame easily.  No need to pick the magnet up to move it to the next date simply slide it. 

Whenever your ready to change your months out simply pull the back flap down and slide in the next month.  A perfect Christmas gift or a special gift for that special woman!

I hope everyone enjoyed my post and we would love you to follow us:

Hi crafters! Welcome to the Echo Park and Imagine blog hop.  For me, I am in Florida trying to survive Hurricane Matthew so any added prayers would be welcome as well lol!!!  So, it was interesting to try and create projects with limited supplies.  It is amazing to see how far crafting has come, but try and challenge yourself and use the basics. 

For my post I made a Christmas using Versacolor ink in Green Tea and Echo Park Haunted patterned paper and   Tis the Season combo set.
I also made this tag using the Haunted collection and added some Studio Glaze in Black to make the dots on the patterned paper and also outlined the house with Memento black ink for depth.  I thought to use only simple things and the products on hand.

There is a full lineup of amazing designers to get your creativity going and both Imagine and Echo Park will be giving away a a fabulous prize!!

I hope everyone everyone enjoyed my post and thanks for stopping your  last stop is the Imagine blog.
