Blitsy Recap!

I just wanted to pop in and share a recap of some of the fantastic projects that my fellow Blitsy Creative Team Members have been creating!

First up, Andreja created DIY emoji fridge magnets! My daughter will LOVE this project! She is emoji obsessed.  This is such a great project to do on one of those hot summer days!

Next, Dana Joy really rocked the Brusho! This is a product I've been watning to try and now she has really enabled me with this amazing card!

I swear, Carisa can read my mind! She created 5 Ways to Jump Start Your Art Page. I can't tell you how useful this is for me.  I always struggle when it comes to mixed media and art pages! She is the best muse!

Kim made an absolutely fantastic Chalk Paint Journal Page! What an excellent way to use chalk paint! I can't wait to try it.

Last, but not least, Lori created realistic flowers from paper! Ack! I love it!

These are just samplings of some of the inspiration on the Blitsy Blog! Make sure to check there daily!

Meet the Gemini!

I just wanted to pop in and remind you that Sara Davies of Crafter's Companion will be on HSN this July 6 to share some amazing deals on the Gemini.  I was lucky enough to see this baby in action at the CHA in January and even luckier to get my hands on one to play with!

I can't say enough good things about this product! The only thing I regret is not having one sooner. Having an automatic die cutting machine makes life so much easier for me! :)

In my last post about the Gemini, I shared a project I created with some of the dies that come with the system.  This time, I wanted to show off how easy it is to emboss!

I used one of the included embossing folders for this card. I actually embossed it on the Crafter's Companion Watercolour Cardstock so I could use my Spectrum Aquas (colors used: Blossom, Orange, Yellow, Bud Green, Aquamarine, Purple, Crimson, Red Violet) to softly add color.

To finish off the card, I heat embossed a sentiment from the Downton Abbey EZ Mount Stamp Set A Little Something set and added some thread behind it.

Do you want to get to know the Gemini a little better? Here's some info:

Lawnscaping Challenge #132: Distress Maniacs

Welcome to another Lawnscaping Challenge! This time, we are getting "distressed!"

We are sponsored by the always amazing Lawn Fawn! Thank you Kelly Marie and gang for sponsoring us!

For my card, I used multiple Distress Inks (Broken China, Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade and Shabby Shutters) along with the Mermaid For You set.

I flicked some water onto the inks after blending them to get the splattered look!

I hope you will play along with us!


Stamps: Lawn Fawn
Pencils: Spectrum Noir
Blending Solution: Spectrum Noir
Inks: Distress Inks, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Sequins: Craft Medley

The Gemini is Coming!

In case you've missed it, the Gemini is coming! There will be a huge special on HSN on July 6, 2016, with the always amazing Sara Davies! She will be sharing all of the awesomeness of the Gemini, live!

By using my Gemini, creating this little gift card box was incredibly easy! I used the heart dies that came with the machine (yes, there are dies included!) and just cut a piece of acetate (2 1/8 by 3 5/8) to fit on the inside of the lid.  The paper is from the Indulgence 11x17 paper pack.

I also used my Big Score to score the edges of the box.

Here's a little more about the Gemini:

Don't miss Sara on HSN July 6 and make sure to follow the Crafter's Companion Gemini Pinterest Board!
