Isn't it fun when you find a deal... such as 32 assorted sizes of paper doilies in a pack for only a dollar at the Dollar Tree! Here is a video I created demonstrating some techniques for incorporating doilies into your project to add texture, color, and dimension to your paper crafting projects. 

What do you think about those ideas? Do you already use doilies in your paper crafting projects? Please share with me what projects you like to use doilies for in the comment section below.
Here are some close-up shots of the projects so you can see them better...

Shaker cards are so fun to make and tags are for more than adding to gifts! Combining a tag with a shaker card is fun, easy, and perfect for entering the current Heart 2 Heart Challenge: Tags!
Let me tell you a little bit about my current entry...
I started by using the Snuggle Up Stamp Set to stamp a bunny (and the balloon) using Toffee Exclusive Ink onto a scrap piece of White Daisy Cardstock. Next I had so much fun watercoloring my decorative pieces.  
Watercoloring is so relaxing!

While my decorative pieces dried I used my Stitched Rectangle Frames Thin Cuts to cut a frame out of Wisteria Cardstock.

I pulled some other papers out of my stash so I could cut out a tag using the Tags & Tabs Thin Cuts. I cut the window out of the tag and …

Do you have Nuvo Drops or Stickles in your paper crafting stash? I love playing with these products when I'm crafting.

Lots of pink Nuvo Crystal Drops on this card!
They add so much shine and dimension to a project. However... have you ever used them for other than making "dots"? If not you might want to try this fun technique... watch my video for details...



Here are a few pictures of what you see in the video so you can see the detail of the "enameling"up close...

How have you been doing as we all stay home and stay safe? Are you getting a lot of crafting done? I have. I thought I might play "catch up" with you all and post a few pictures of some of what I've been doing these days...

Of course, this terrible pandemic has been front and center on the minds of so many of us... including mine. My art journal has been a great outlet for me to vent my frustrations regarding this Covid-19 experience going on all over the world. I've released my "dark feelings" as well as feelings of encouragement.

Don't you simply love gift tags!?! I do! You can use them as journaling cards in scrapbooks, or embellishments on a handmade card, bookmarks or as actual gift tags! I've put together a video using the June 2020 Stamp of the Month (SOTM) from Close to my Heart (CTMH) to showcase a super easy ink blending technique on gift tags. I will list supplies I used below the video but you can always use the supplies you already have in your stash!



For my gift tags I used:

Exclusive Inks - Choose the colors you like the best and don't forget the black ink, too!White Daisy Cardstock - Gift tags are a great way to use scrap pieces of cardstock.Sponge Daubers Value Pack - I am using old daubers in the video, but these would work great!Stamp Sham…

Then I got busy blending some ink...



While that background ink dried I started to work on my hummingbird. I used my new Sweet Hummingbird Stamp + Thin Cuts (Z3725) for this card design.

First I stamped the hummingbird in blac…
