Teacher Card by Nadine Carlier (ic)

I can’t believe it is almost the end of the school year! My daughter always likes to give her teachers a thank you/goodbye card the last day of school. She specifically asked for a chalkboard look.  Right away I knew I wanted to use Imagines VersaMagic which is a chalk like ink.
Below I put together a tutorial video showing I created the chalkboard effect on my card….

Watch a Video Tutorial for a Marvelous Magenta Card

by Jennifer Vanderbeek

Watch a Video for a Marvelous Magenta Card

Inspiration comes from the oddest places. I took the color magenta, combined it with an 80s catchphrase, a couple different techniques and paired those up with a stamp set and it turned into this card for our color of the month challenge for May. This fun design would make a great pick-me-up for a friend, and since it measures a mere 8 ½ x 3 5/8 inches, it fits into any unassuming letter envelope and would be a nice surprise amidst all the junk mail and bills! Check out my quick and easy video that dives into how I created this card.

Video: How to Make a Magenta Monogram Shaker Keychain

by Jennifer Vanderbeek

magenta monogram key chain for new home owners

M is for Monogram! In today’s post, I am sharing how to make a Monogrammed Shaker Key Chain. In April, we celebrated our third year as homeowners—our housiversary if you will—and I have a few other friends dipping their toes (and bank accounts) into the real estate market right now. All of this had me thinking about the prime symbol of home ownership: the key. I had a lot of fun putting together this DIY crafting shaker element usually meant for handmade cards and turning it into a handmade keychain. It could a perfect housewarming gift for a new homeowner but could also be a fabulous luggage tag if traveling is more your style.
