Tonic Studios Craft Kit 34 - Art Deco Frames & stamps

Today is the unveiling day for Tonic Studio Craft Kit 34 - Deco Art Frames & it is a wonderful kit. Although it has frames as the title, you actually get 2 sets of beautiful, detailed layering dies ... which also make frames 😀

 Tonic Studios Craft Kit 34 - Deco Art Frames

The kit is full of wonderful bronze, peach/apricot & blue colours which work together beautifully. I decided for my projects to just stick to the bronze & peach/apricot colours ...

I have made a flip book, matching card & gift tag. A full link to my YouTube video, showing step by step, if further down my blog post.

Polkadoodles Lemonade Fizz stamp set to create dimensional flowers

Sharing today a card made with Polkadoodles Lemonade Fizz stamp set. This is another great set of stamps from Polkadoodles Stamp Soup range and I love how you can create wonderful, big flowers with the elements. That's one of the perks of the Stamp Soup clear stamps range, you create the images you want to use.

I also have a video to share with you showing lots of different ways to use the stamp set to create wonderful floral designs plus how I created my card.

Mosaic picture frame made from upcycled cardboard/chipboard

For Love 2 Create Challenges with Polkadoodles, I thought I would make a dent in cardboard/chipboard A4 pieces that I have been squirrelling away from the hard back envelopes I have received in the post. Thought it might be rather cool to upcycle them in to a piece of home decor. So grabbing a couple of bits of the A4 card/chip board I made a mosaic photo/picture frame ...

I have also created a YouTube video sharing the "making process" - details below.

Sakura Koi Brush Pens on a Gelli Arts plate

A little time ago, I had great fun playing with my Sakura Koi Brush Pens on a Gelli Plate. It was part of a demo I created for Sakura for Hochanda TV. I love my Sakura Koi Brush Pens and use them alll the time in my card making, journaling & wanted to see how I could use with my other favourite crafty supplies - this time a Gelli Plate.

In the demo, I show how I have used the Sakura Koi Brush Pens and how I used my demo background sheets, which were essentially just me playing on card.

Sharing 3 ideas using Tonic Studios Memory Book Satchel Bag die set

A wee while ago, Tonic Studios launched a new set of dies to join the existing memory Book series - Memory Book Satchel Die Set. Gotta say, I had a "blast" creating with these dies as there is simply loads & loads you can do with the die set. I only made 3 projects for the launch but could have made loads more as once I started making, ideas flooded forward.

Below, is a link to all four videos I made and what each video covers.

Mini art journal page using Polkadoodles Mixed Media stamps

Oh my ... sad that I've neglected my blog for so long but now work has eased a little, back to blogging full strength. I do love my blog as it's my crafting diary and my "go to" when my mojo goes on holiday.

Today I'm sharing a step by step tutorial showing how I created a mini art journal page using the wonderful Weirdre Collection of mixed media stamps from Polkadoodles.

Polkadoodles Mixed Media stamps - creating an Art Journal double page spread.

A wee while ago, I created my art/junk journal using up-cycled card & papers. It has 3 different signatures sewn in to the spine with a wrap around cover. Slowly I am beginning to start filling my art/junk journal with a mixture of photos, scrap pages & art journal ideas.

For this double page spread, I thought it would be cool to work with a selection of Polkadoodles mixed media stamps ...

I also made a video showing how I created my pages. It can be found further down this post.
