Hello, Friends! Today I am sharing a custom sign/framed artwork I made for my new studio: I created the sign in a Word document using some fabulous fonts from a great new website I discovered, Little Big Crafter. Both of the fonts I used came from The Craft Room Mega Bundle, which includes 20 fonts, 20 unique quotes and designs for kids, plus some SVG cut files! And when you purchase the bundle you will also receive $5 store credit to spend on whatever you please! If you like this bundle, grab it before May 9, when it won't be offered any longer. And it keeps getting better, folks . . . Little Big Crafter is offering my blog readers a 10% discount code to use on anything in their store! Just enter this code at checkout, for your 10% discount: PAPERFECTIONS10 ... Enjoy! For my sign, I used the Will Shering Sans font for the "Do Something" and "Everyday" words, printing them in pretty colors that coordinate with my studio and the butterflies (more on those a little later): The pretty "Creative" word was created with the Zombis Night font -- I printed it in a very light gray,...

There's nothing like the need for a specific card for a little motivation! My youngest daughter's choir teacher for the past two years and his wife just had their first baby (a girl!), so we wanted to give them a little something special. I've had my eye on Tim Holtz's blueprint series of stamps for quite some time, and this mini set of four baby stamps was just perfect for today's card! To find out how it came together, I hope you will join me today over in Ellen Hutson's the CLASSroom! Continue reading

Happy March, everyone! Today I am sharing a Spring home decor project with you, using some of Pink Ink Stamp Company's latest stamp release! This photo holder/stand was a gift from a dear friend nine years ago, shortly after we moved into our last house. I thought it was only fitting to spruce it up a bit, since we will be moving into a new home in one short month ... thus, the great "New Beginnings" sentiment! So I made a watercolor background on a 4" x 6" piece of watercolor paper using Tumbled Glass Distress Reinker: Once the background was dry, Copic Opaque White was used to paint the clouds -- I thinned it with a bit of water and painted it on the watercolored background with a brush: Next, I stamped Pink Ink's Row of Bulbs and New Beginnings sentiment with Versamark Ink onto an Inchie Arts 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" ATC Art Board and gold heat embossed it. I always love how nice and crisp Pink Ink's red rubber stamp images stamp and emboss -- such pretty fine details! And the Art Board stands up to the heat embossing, Copic coloring AND the Opaque White being heavily painted... Continue reading

Well, now I need a fuse tool! What a very clever project, Carissa – I had never heard of a planner dashboard… But will certainly be trying one soon! Yours is absolutely gorgeous and in no way has too much glitter or sequins! 😊
