This project was inspired by some gorgeous wire, metal, and glass lanterns we spotted in a shop last year. They were not for sale (more’s the pity), but that never stops a crafter—at least not for long! With some paper maché houses and the help of shimmery Delicata inks, these holiday houses have a perfect patina of aged metal.
I had this picture of my two boys and me on my craft table since Mother’s Day. They both gave me handmade cards, which brought tears to my eyes because they know me so well ♥ I wanted to store those cards somewhere on the layout. Therefore I used a white paper bag at the bottom of all the layers.
Sometimes I feel a certain amount of pressure to have my hands in every little facet of every single project, but I only have two hands and 24 hours in a day–something’s gotta give! I’m willing to bet you can empathize. So when I can’t handcraft each and every piece of party stationery to my liking, I at least like to do some strategic embellishments and updates to custom-printed or store-bought stationery. For an upcoming birthday luau, Radiant Neon Amplify! was just the ticket to add a little texture and dimension to our invitations, thank you cards, and buffet signs.
January – out with the old, in with the new…time for a fresh start and along with that fresh start is a time to get organized. But organizing doesn’t have to be boring, spice up your organizational containers with a bit of help from Creative Medium!
I used several techniques and many fun products to create this sweet elephant card. Let me show you how.
Fall is my favorite time of the year and I love making home decor items to display around the house. It seems like I have tissues in every room for the little noses that come to visit Nana. Though manufacturers are making the tissue boxes prettier these days, they still need my artistic touch.

These days, the refugees are the main theme in Europe. Thousands of people from outside Europe are leaving their homes and houses in their homelands because they’re living under suppression, in a war zone or were hagridden by others. They risks their and their family’s lives for reaching Europe, hoping to find a place where they could live in peace. For International Day of Peace, I wanted to create something airy, with a positive mood subtending this sad situation. There is confusion but also hope everywhere.
They say take time to smell the roses but I think it’s just as important to take time to collect seashells by the seashore…
