Yummy Stamped Serviettes!

Created by Jowilna Nolte

White is such an amazing blank canvas – from cardstock to canvas to fabric. White enables you to create and alter whatever you can dream up. For those special afternoon tea time treats on the patio I altered some white linen serviettes to make them a bit more special.

If you aren’t hungry after reading this, you have a stronger will power than the rest of us.

Sweet Mum – A Card Just for Her.

Created by: Jowilna Nolte

My mom loves birds and so for this Mother’s day I wanted to make a card that incorporates a little birdie. Thankfully I have some really cute stamps and with the help of the amazing StazOn Studio Glaze I could add some really amazing color to my image. For my sentiment I used two stamps and stamped them in different colors for a fun look.  Learn how to make your ‘Sweet Mum’ this lovely sentiment here!

Is Mother Earth A Crafter?

Earth Day is upon us and it’s not just our Pacific Northwest roots that have us here at Imagine Crafts caring about our impact on the environment. Earth Day has more than a billion people partaking in the green festivities every year and as we become more environmentally conscious that number continues to grow. As a way to incorporate Earth Day’s mission beyond a single day, try to encompass upcycling more into your crafting. Upcycling is more than just a trend it can really become a fundamental part of your crafting behavior. It’s easy on your pocket book and the environment. I’d say that’s a win-win, wouldn’t you?

Below are some examples how our own Artists in Residence have upcycled their own items and used them towards fun and functional crafting projects.


One way I incorporate upcycling into my life is by finding new uses for used candle votives (see below), repurposing vases I’ve received from flower deliveries, or by simply donating items I no longer use. Someone out there can certainly give your old items new life. Whether through their own crafting projects or simply by sprucing them up a bit and getting a bit more use out of them. By upcycling, repurposing and donating you are directly keeping waste out of landfills. Somewhere Captain Planet is thanking you!
