It's summertime! That means there are children home from school and needing activities to keep them entertained and having fun. I made a video today to show you a fun crafting project that will amaze children (and adults)!



Isn't that fun! What did you think of this video? Pictures magically appearing on the surface of the cardstock are sure to entertain children on a rainy day.
The measurements I used for the magic paper and little note cards are: I started out with 3" x 3" squares of the White Daisy Cardstock, but once the magic appears and the cardstock dries (either naturally or with the help of a heat tool) I trimmed them to be 2.5" x 2.5" square.The patterned paper is cut to 2.75" x 2.75" square.The …

I was so excited to play with the Close To My Heart (CTMH) Stamp of the Month for July I jumped into it two weeks early! One of the benefits of being an Independent Consultant for CTMH is that I can get my hands on the stamps a bit earlier than the public release. If you are interested in becoming a CTMH Independent Consultant then be sure to contact me and I will be happy to assist you and then you can get the stamps early, too!
I made a couple of "open design" cards using this fun stamp set and paper from the CTMH Into The Wild paper collection. I created a video while making one of the cards if you would like to follow along:

I received positive feedback regarding my first video (Technique: Vellum "Stained Glass" Butterflies) so I decided to do another video! For this short video I focused on a child-friendly activity. Let me know what you think!



Here are an assortment of links taking you to the products I used in my video:

The cleaner I used to clean my stamp → My Acrylic Spritz Cleaner
The stamp scrubber brush I use → My Acrylic Stamp Scrubber
The spray pen → Spray Pen (it comes in a pack of three)
You can use any stamp you or the child wants to use.
The cardstock for this project → White Daisy Cardstock, but of course you could use other colors if you wanted to.

Thank you for reading my blog today and for watching this quick video. If you have any qu…

Technique: Vellum "Stained Glass" Butterflies

For today's entry I wanted to show you how to make butterflies out of vellum that look as if they are stained glass. I decided the easiest way to demonstrate this technique would be with a video. So I recorded my first video demonstration! Links to some of the supplies used in the video are at the bottom of this posting.



Please tell me in the comments below if you like this format and if you think I should do videos such as this again. Thank you for your suggestions and support.

Happy Paper Crafting,
Rebecca

Life has been busy and fun in my household! We took some time off to drive out and visit with my parents in Texas (so I was out of my craft room and offline for a bit), we've been planting spring flowers, and spending a bit of time with our sweet kids and granddaughter... all things I love to do!

However, I thought you might like to see a couple of paper crafting projects from this month. First, let me tell you about the Mother's Day card I made for my mother.




The basic card design is from Dreaming Tree, but then I added some components and adapted it for Mother's Day. I used cardstock and papers from Close To My Heart and from my stash. I also used Nuvo Glitter Drops as an embellishment. I…
