New Year Resolution File Folder by Jowilna Nolte

With the New Year just around the corner we are ringing it in with some glitz and glamour with a fun resolutions file folder. I used Delicate ink to dress up this file folder for a fuin and festive look. This year I will pen down my hope and dreams and blessings, so that I can reflect on them at the end of 2016 and feel really really blessed!

How Could You “Resist” This?

How Could You “Resist” This? by Clare Horner

When the challenge came in to use Kaleidacolor ink pads I knew straight away exactly what I wanted to create. I adore this very old technique for creating a resist background and have found that Kaleidacolor is the only ink that will do this effect any sort of justice. I hope that you enjoy it too. Thanks for visiting.

Simply Scrumptious Gift Card Holder

By Clare Horner


Some times it is just so much simpler to give that picky teenager a gift card than buy a gift. I never know what to buy my nieces mainly because they have everything twice over already! I decided to create a slider card and figured that I could hide a gift card within the mechanism. Simple and pretty, they key part being the simple for me! Learn how to make your own scrumptious gift card holder under our “MAKE” page!

Spring Fling

It’s the first weekend of Spring – time to put Winter behind us and to start thinking about blooming flowers, pastel colors and warmer weather! To help get you in the Spring mood, put off that Spring cleaning this weekend and get creative with these projects from our Artists In Residence.

Hello Spring


I love playing with Pico’s and with Spring just around the corner, this is a fun embossing folder to play with. I’ve kept it fairly simply, but I can envision a really colorful zentangle with all the Pico colors. Say ‘Hello” to Spring by creating your own card created by Penny.


Lollipop Flowers


Get creative with Amplify! with this fun project from Clare. Use her easy to follow tutorial to make your own boquet of Spring blooms. When heated on waxed paper, Amplify has the look and feel of suede!
