Upcycled cardboard pieces to create a photo frame

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.

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.
