ISGB: Spells & Fortunes

Hello and welcome!!! Today I'm sharing with you another project using International Scrapbook Garden's Toolshed kit . . . The Spider's Web.

I think it's comical that we crafter's can use more supplies to make a card or tag than an actual scrapbook page. Do you?

For this tag, I really wanted to try and use the web stamp that comes in the main kit but I couldn't figure out how to make it "look good". Well, I've been watching a lot of mixed media tutorials lately and there is something I've forgotten about . . . embossing powders!!! Duh!

I hope this tag inspires you. Basically, just make a fun background and layer your embellishments. Piece of cake!


Kit Supplies:
ISB: Spider's Web Main Kit
ISB: Spider's Web Embellishment Kit
ISB: Mixed Media Kit

Extra Supplies:

Glitter Tulle (craft section at Hobby Lobby)
Spellbinder dies and punch for foliage
Black Embossing powder
Black Thread
Background "word" stamp
Lindy's Spray: Moon Shadow Mist
Tim Holtz' Distress Ink: Spiced Marmalade
Clear Duck Tape (adds unique texture)

PDE Challenges: Cocoa Cafe

Hello there! It's time for a new challenge today at PDE Linky Challenges.

The theme is 'Anything Goes'.

Sometimes it's best to have "generic" cards in your stash, because you
never know what you might need them for.

The snowman and cocoa cup is a paper piecing file from

The patterned paper is by Bobunny.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Thankful (New Year)

Hello and welcome to my blog and 2018 . . . this is going to be a long post as I thank the many people and ideas that led to this project.

First, International Scrapbook Garden is a new kit club (in which I'm on the DT) and the owner has generously provided mixed media as part of her kits. I have been dabbling in mixed media and have felt it was time to really take the plunge! I have been watching a lot of videos lately.

Secondly, I completely fell in love with the YouTube canvas tutorial by Gabrielle Pollacco. My project is very much based on her work and am incredibly grateful that she makes videos. (Cause I really don't make videos).

Third, Christmas came. I had a package of goodies picked out by . . . me. Enough said.

Finally, I browsed around looking at alternate projects and came across Linsey Rickett who led me to The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge.

What better way to show off my mixed media project!? Everything about it is "new". New goodies, new technique (for me anyway), and in general a very new type of project for me.

The colors are Lindsey's Stamp Gang Starburst Sprays called
"Autumn Leaves".

On Gabrielle's video she used a LOT of chipboard from Dusty Attic.
Well, I have a Silhouette Cameo. So I bought the 110lb Kraft Card Stock
to use and files from the Silhouette online store.

Took about an hour to cut it all out, but cheaper for me.

The project is highlighted with Perfect Pearls Gold powder 
mixed with a tiny amount of water. Love the effect!

I do already have a nice selection of stencils for creating
textured backgrounds.
