Foiling On Acetate Holidays Card

Thursday, November 16, 2017
After a long hiatus my Etsy store is once again active! I just listed two holidays cards for sale few days ago, click HERE to check it out! Besides I also have more washi tapes for sale and it comes in different designs for you to choose from! 

Here is the new card I made with foiling on acetate, I like to try  out different medium on my card to add special feature for the card. What do you think about this card? 

It's kinda see-through but with some falling foiled snowflakes element on the front. I embossed the sentiment in gold to give it a slight dimension.

Supplies:
- Crafter's Companion Chloe Stamps
- Crafter's Companion Mini Dies

Spectrum Noir ColourTint Pencils

Saturday, November 11, 2017
Check out this new ColourTint pencils by Spectrum Noir! If you haven't heard of Graphite pencils before, check out HERE. The product ColourTint is the Crafter's Companion's version of Graphite pencils. These pencils are wonderful, they are many good reviews you can find about them if you follow Spectrum Noir on Facebook. Many users/crafters have shared their opinion about why they choose to work with these pencils. 

Personally I like these pencils because unlike water-coloring pencils the ColourTint pencils dry much quicker and allow you to apply another layer of color/shade without having to wait for a certain amount of time for the first layer to dry. I also find these pencils are rich in colors, you'll only need little water to bring out the colors and the color looks smoother than the watercolors (diluted with water). 


Here is another sample except this one is not using water-coloring paper.

You can still find these amazing pencils on HSN! Follow Crafter's Companion on FB or Spectrum Noir to see more inspirations or even tricks to get better result using these pencils.

Monday, November 6, 2017
Crafter's Companion is on HSN today!! Sara is demonstrating the NEW Gemini Junior machine right now and tune in to see how powerful this machine is! It cuts through different thick materials such as metal sheets, cork, wood veneer, fabric and so much more. You won't want to miss it and the price is amazing! It's less than $150 dollars for the bundle which includes dies, stamps and embossing folders to get you started! WOW!! Best deals ever!


And have you seen the Flutterby Collection?! I can say it's one of my favorites so far, simply beautiful! Made this layout of my little girl and I fell in love with the color combination!

What's Coming To HSN?!

Tuesday, October 31, 2017
Love what you see?! This is the new Stamp and Die from the Flutterby collection by Sara Davies that will be soon on HSN in just a couple of days!! Mark your calendar for this November 6th  (or set your DVR to record!) to watch the all day long craft shows on HSN, see Sara in action to demonstrate you how to work with these beauties and show you what you can create with them. 

Look at these cards, they are made with the Framed Wings dies and matching stamp! Isn't awesome?! I love the fact that it cuts only the sides of the wings and leaves the top and bottom of the butterfly attached to the card. This is kind of a next level crafting we are talking about. 



This card is created using the same dies and stamp but instead of cutting it as a whole butterfly I cut it half on both sides on a denim fabric and stamped it with black ink. Possibilities are endless depending on how your creativity!


Pull -Up Card Using Digital Images

Saturday, October 21, 2017
Have you ever looked into the CD content that comes with the magazine? You should! I don't usually make a card with digital image but this is gorgeous and guess what, they are much more images to choose from the disc. This is one of my favorites, the background pattern is so beautiful too. If you always struggled to create a stamped image card now is the easier and quicker way to make cards! Imagine how many cards you can make with this digital printables! 


I turned this into a pull-up card so the image inside will be revealed once it's pulled out. Oh did I mention if you use Photoshop, you can also modify the image such as the color of the shirt!! How cool is that?!

DIY Stylist Tree Home Decor/Ornament

Monday, October 16, 2017
What's the project inspiration for today? Make this cute holidays decoration using recycled items and cutting dies by Crafter's Companion! Doesn't this look adorable? If you haven't noticed, there's a jingle bell inside the tree itself! How cool is that?! No doubt I would hang this on my Christmas tree, that's right it makes a super adorable ornament too. :)

I used the Stylist Tree die from the Contemporary Collection from Crafter's Companion, I love the modern design of the tree unlike the traditional ones. Don't get me wrong, I love all Christmas trees only that this one is a little special. I used a plastic cup, you can use any cup you like to DIY this but make sure the proportion of the tree and cup looks nice together. I folded the falling snow acetate into a pyramid shape and decorated it with the cutout stylist tree which I colored with gold Sparkle Pen.

Collage-A-Card For Him/Her Card Kits

Tuesday, October 10, 2017
Did you purchased the Collage-a-Card kit from Crafter's Companion? They are still available on HSN! These are so fantastic, easy and quickest card making ever. Moreover they are lovely, creative and interactive. I'm so in love with this bride dress especially, so real and elegant! Crafter's Companion you have outdone it again! 



I used to be a computer geek, fyi I was a software engineer before I had become a full time mom. I don't plan on returning to the industry but since I still interact with computer a lot everyday so I would not mind to get this either. LOL. 


****Squeal**** these are AMAZING!! My would love to get this in the mail (since it would be meaningless to send it to myself  plus I'm married - lol).


Who loves to garden?! If you do you should definitely bring this home, it's beautiful!

Look at this tool house, isn't so fun?!! It's suitable for dads, boyfriend, brother, friend, etc!

3D Christmas Decor House

Thursday, October 5, 2017
Here is a flash back of one of the projects that I made that was on Crafter's Companion's last HSN in October! Had so much fun making this 3D decor house filled with Christmas characters. You can still find these fun characters dies on HSN! This Cute Christmas collection is so popular and I can say it's one of my favorite collections ever! 

Honestly it took me awhile to construct this decor house but it was really satisfying to see the final project came out nicely when it's done. I sent this in for HSN show which mean I can't use it decorate my house this Christmas (even so it was pretty cool to see it on TV!!).

Sara Davies Signature Black & Gold Collection

Saturday, September 30, 2017
Black and Gold, it's one of the best combination of colors ever (in my opinion). The crafting expert Sara Davies (also the mastermind behind Crafter's Companion) came up with this collection Black & Gold and I think it's a fabulous idea! The patterned papers look good for making elegant project like one I did below. A home decor frame that will fit in any room perfectly. I'm thinking kitchen, bedroom, living room and even rest room (I'm not joking!). I think it will light up the room or at least gives it a completely different modern look. 

Sara is bringing this collection to HSN this coming October 3rd (which is next Tuesday!) so make sure to set your alarm clock and watch Sara and Jennifer demonstrate the entire collection with you! There will be plenty more projects to get you inspired! And spoiler alert, they will also be giveaways (many giveaways) on the day as well. Don't miss it, follow all design team members on their social media (click HERE to follow me on Instagram!) to catch all the news and freebies!


Check out Crafter's Companion's Blog to see more details about the upcoming show including information about what other products will be on air that day! Can't wait to see you there!

Christmas Card Making Season

Tuesday, September 19, 2017
It's Christmas in September! Here are some more cards made with Traditional Christmas card kit, I had so much fun assembling all the cards from both Traditional and Contemporary card kits and made a total of 60+ cards!! That's a lot of greeting cards that I can send out this year. :) 






Traditional Christmas Cards

Tuesday, September 12, 2017
Sharing more Christmas cards using the Traditional Card Kit by Crafter's Companion with you today! Check out all the styles you can create using the kit! I think I have made enough cards than I would need to send out this year, I have made 30 cards each for both Traditional and the Contemporary kits! WOW!! Right?! And that's like the best $40 (less than 70 cents/card) you could ever spend on handmade cards created by YOU!! Grab them from HSN while stock lasts!



This is a pull-up card, lift the ribbon upward and reveal the colorful image underneath.

Just like this! 

A lot of gold and I like gold especially shiny gold. hehe.

This is super cute, reminds me of all the Christmas shopping we do weeks before the special day.

Another shaker card with snowflakes sequins.

This is my first attempt making this style of card, I can see more coming in the future. Looks really nice when it was sat up.

Gate opening card, I used a velcro to snap the opening close.

How it looks like inside.

Pretty cool right?! Crafter's Companion have this pre-scored/cut card packs available for you to make card like this without having to go through the trouble to measure and cut manually. Very convenient!

While you are still here, check out the schedule for the coming HSN shows on October 3rd!

Crafter's Companion Card Kit

Friday, September 8, 2017
So you have seen the cards I created so far using the Cuddly Christmas card kit by Crafter's Companion but do you know they also have the Traditional Christmas card kit?! Yes! For those of you who are not a big fan of contemporary designs you can choose this kit instead. I personally like them both, ok, maybe I lean towards the contemporary one slightly more than the other but to be honest they are both beautiful and I'm sure whoever you are sending the cards to they are going to appreciate your effort for putting them together. Both kits are currently still available on HSN so grab them while you can because they will be more new products coming in October and you don't know if they will be out of stock. 

Look at this card I put together, isn't is so simple looking but elegant? I promise they will be no complicated drawings and die-cutting. All you have to do is pop the pieces right out from the decoupage sheet and glue them to desirable patterned cardstock (this is high quality cardstock we are talking about, thick and sturdy!). 


On the other hand if you would like to use something that you already own to add feature to the card, you can do something similar to what I did using the Create-a-Card die to create an open window feature. Just like the Cuddly card kit, I also made 30 cards using this Traditional card kit! I don't think I'll be short on holidays cards this year. LOL. 


Thanks for stopping by! Check back for more card inspirations and sneak peek for the new stuffs coming in October!
