Handmade placecard name tag holder in the shape of a cornucopia made with Rinea foil and Memento Markers.

Cornucopia Table Place Cards

Since Rinea foil papers are gorgeous on both sides, I wanted to make something with them that showed off that feature. Paper “sculptures” are good for this, and with the Thanksgiving holidays approaching, a cornucopia seemed the best way to go. It’s a simple shape in that it’s mostly a cone, but to give it a little of a curve, the pattern I’ve devised shifts the “spine” bit by bit on the bottom half of the sheet to add just enough curve to keep things interesting. These place card holders work up quickly, so preparing a table-full will still leave you with plenty of time for holiday fun.

Handmade paper gingerbread garland made with StazOn Studio Glaze from Tsukineko

Gingerbread House Garland

Die cuts and a few choice supplies combine to create this darling little gingerbread house garland. Not only is it perfect for the holidays, it’s an ideal craft to let kids help decorate (after the embossing is done!) and it would also look super sweet at a fairy tale themed event—think Hansel and Gretel and the witch’s house in the woods. A fun technique used in this project is layering the StazOn Studio Glaze while still wet. Drawing the tip of the Claret StazOn Studio Glaze bottle over the Cotton White made for near-seamless candy cane stripes once dried. Also, I’ve found it helps to be very generous with the Cotton White, especially on darker papers or backgrounds, if you want it to retain some opacity.

Beautiful Mixed Media Artist Trading Coins

Artist Trading Coins are very popular right now and so fun! I love having different shapes to work with to create fun projects. Of course, Imagine supplies pair perfectly with these ATC Coins to create a cute banner to decorate your space. Use Fireworks Shimmery Craft Spray and Creative Medium to apply great colors and textures to your background. StazOn Ink is always the perfect choice when you need a permanent ink for your mixed media project.

Learn How To Make Three Unique Bowls Using Polyform Clay

Ink is not just for paper. You can use it on fabric, metal and more specifically Polyform clay. You can use inks to transform polymer clay projects into a wide variety of pieces. Use ink to simply color your clays projects, use with stamps to add designs, or blend it into the clay to create a new color clay. For this project, I create three different bowls using Sculpey Souffle clay with VesaMagic Dew Drop and StazOn inks and demonstrate several techniques when using inks. Hope I pique your interest and give these projects a try.

For this project, I stamped the sentiment “Love Blossoms Here” onto watercolor paper, personalized it with alphabet stamps, added wire hanging and added a book paper backing to represent the family stories that get created along the way and then passed on.

Make a Shabby Chic Wedding Banner

I used kraft banner pendants with doilies and gorgeous flowers to create a beautiful wedding banner. My favorite part is the delicate rosebuds created with Creative Medium in Iridescent Purple. Against the kraft paper, it pops just enough to create a wonderful background. It has a gorgeous finish that is delicate enough for wedding decor, yet bold enough to catch your attention. This banner would be a lovely decoration on the front of the wedding party table, near the gift table, or where ever a bride might find it is needed!

Rainbow paper door wreath handmade using cardstock and VersaMagic ink in 21 colors.

Make a Paper Rainbow Pinwheel Wreath

It's April! Can you believe it? I wanted to make something fun for summer to hang on our front door and I think this rainbow pinwheel wreath is just the ticket. It’s bright, cheerful and welcoming to all who grace our doorstep. I decided to use 21 different colors of VersaMagic ink to grace my rainbow but of course, any color theme would be perfect for this project. The complete color list can be found in the supply list below.

A simple and elegant shabby chic wedding table setting including a napkin ring, menu card holder, cutlery placeholder and glass coasters all with a white doily theme.

Simple, Elegant and Inexpensive Wedding Table Setting

Planning to make wedding table decorations? I've planned out an idea for this that is based on easy-to-find supplies, not requiring crafting machines or things that would be difficult to use after this project is complete. I also was interested in it being easy to prepare but still elegant. By creating several easy-to-make matching pieces, the cost of the basic crafting supplies is still quite low per setting.

Using the kraft cardstock as the background, you have the option to play with more color choices on the embossing powder or the dyed flowers with the Fireworks! Simmery Craft Sprays. I estimate of the cost for 100 place-settings is about $150. One A3 kraft page makes an entire setting.
