I recently stumbled upon another crafting challenge at www.papercraftcrew.com and I asked my 10-year-old niece, Ianne, to collaborate with me on the project. This is the inspiration sketch provided for the challenge: This is our entry : The main card is Quaff CC (250 gsm) and the corrugated mint paper is a scrap from a Read More
I just enrolled in my first online class, literally a few minutes ago! I am so excited to start my “Introduction to Color Theory” class tonight and thought I’d post it here to remember this moment. I’ll probably post updates as I go along. Join me?
I used to wonder how crafters get straight paper/cardstock cuts. Starting out, I had an exacto knife and different sizes of scissors but none of those made professional looking cuts no matter the size or the brand.

About four weeks ago, I started my #100craftschallenge on Instagram to motivate me to craft more. As you probably know, I do crafting to relax and take my mind off things I’d much rather deal with during working hours.
