my FUNdamentals Classes


Recently I started to teach the FUNdamentals Technique (T1).
I created the class curriculum based on some of the most used techniques for paper crafting, with extension to Scrapbooking and Card Making and thinking about both beginner and even people who already do scrapbook or handmade cards.
I believe it is always a good thing to see and review the techniques to help fellow enthusiasts learn and get to know how fun and versatile some of these can be.

I created this sampler board featuring the techniques discussed during the first class.

patterned paper, cardstock, blender pen, stamps, ink pads, scoring tool, Liquid Glass, Liquid Applique, Glitter Glitz (CTMH), Adirondack Alcohol Ink(Ranger), punch(Marvy Ushida), dry embossing pad( Fiskars ), vellum, glossy paper , mesh template(miscellaneous).

Thanks for stopping by!

So many ideas, so little time

With so many things going on right now, I wish I could organize better my "own" time to craft more and to sparkle more fun ideas for the projects.
Little time, lots of ideas. Inspirations here and there.

Then I found out that making these handmade embellishments can help keep track of my creative outlet. Without taking too long or spending an entire evening.
I enjoy the outcome of these little - simple - cute accents made "fresh" from what I already have in my stash.

stamps(CTMH, inkadinkado), patterned paper and cardstock(CTMH, DCWV, K & Company), felt flowers (American Crafts), punchies(from Marvy Ushida, MS., Karl), brads (Making Memories ) vellum, plastic lace, tag, felt leaves, buttons(miscellaneous).

Thanks for visiting!
