Mixed Media Home Decor: Stamping with Stamper’s Big Brush Pen


Hi Everyone! Carisa back with you today and I want to wish everyone a  Happy New Year! I know we're already half into the month of January and time just continues to fly by. Hopefully, the newness, hope and anticipation of the new year has not worn off on you yet. I love the feeling of fresh beginnings and a clean slate. For my project today, I wanted to create something to hang on my wall to remind me to be positive every single day. I used some of my favorite products including: Gelatos® Colors 50's Diner Collection and Stamper’s Big Brush Pen for my stamping as well as Texture Luxe™ for added shine and dimension and more! A list of all the supplies used today can be found below.

Hello, it´s Denisa. Today I´d like to share with you my handmade magnets. They´re made of ordinary jar lids. I wanted to spruce up my kitchen a little bit because it´s quite small and the only place for some flat decorations is my fridge. So decorative magnets were the right thing.

3 steps to clever gift wrapping ideas with Rita Barakat

Hey there artsy peeps Rita Barakat here today! If you missed last weeks posts you might want to go and check it out. With holidays around the corner this is a great time to get creative about last minute gift wrapping ideas and we shared a lot last week! After all of that I was thinking how about those of you who say you have no time to get creative this season? Why not do a little double duty and get creative with your gift wrapping! I don't mean fancy ribbons or bows either!  I bet you thought this was a canvas? Nope it is a gift box! A 5x7, 3/4 inch deep gift box I "decorated" with my Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products! You can create little works of art too and personalize them for the person who will be receiving this gift! It's easy, quick and I know you already have the supplies! Let's get started!

And the coming Christmas season helped me to choose the colors: silver, white, gray, pearl. I used Gesso by Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®, Texture Luxe™ Pearl, Gelatos® and Glaze.

Unique Way to Give Wine and MORE - with Lisa


Hi everyone! It's Lisa with you on the blog and I wanted to share with you a really fun way to give wine and other goodies that you may not have thought of before. I also used a (new to me) product by Clover to make the cute little embellishments on the front. They're called yo-yo's. I'm guessing I'm the last person on the planet to hear of these, right? Probably because I don't sew. ;)  Since most of my friends are adults (with adult children), giving gifts like this are perfect.

Snow-Covered Holiday House Boxes by Jen Matott


Holiday project2Hi, Artsy Friends!  I'm so excited to decorate for the holidays!  I found these little house shaped boxes at a big store and knew that I wanted to create some snowy holiday decor with them.  I could use them for gift boxes but I think they are so cute that they could be displayed and then given away!  These paper mache boxes are so easy to stamp on and decorate with mediums.  Let me show you how!
