Around the House – Christmas Cards

Hello again! As the mailbox fills with Christmas cards from family friends I find myself discarding cards from last year and replacing then with update family photos and beautiful Christmas cards. Today we have another idea on how you can recycle last season’s Christmas cards…this time, into a fun holiday garland — perfect for the [...]

Around the House – Christmas Cards

Ever wonder what you could do with all the Christmas cards you receive each year? Yes, they look wonderful strung up around the house for the season, but there will be new cards to hang up next year.  How about recycling the cards into gift tags for next season? This process is simple and fun [...]

BeaLocal – Bopper

Today’s local spotlight is yet another great vendor coming out of Redding, California, just a short drive north of Chico. Bopper is a great store if you are looking for some metal accents that you can imprint and add to your cards or layouts, or even if you dabble in jewelry making. Bopper sells metal [...]

BeaInspired – The Men in Your Life

Yesterday I was inspired by some of the men in my life. It just so happens that my brother-in-law, father and grandfather all have their birthdays within a span of 6 days. So yesterday was the day to sit down and create some cards! I always struggle when making cards for men. The color palette [...]

BeaOrganized – Templates

Every once in awhile you will buy a tool or accessory that comes with a template to help guide you in your crafting process. I know my Making Memories tag maker, and the tags that are sold separately, come with square or circle templates for the paper inserts. The problem is, you can never find [...]

BeaOrganized – Drying Cards

Rubber stamping on cards is borderline a necessity. Almost every card I create has a rubber stamp element to it. But this means that almost every time I create a card I fight the difficult battle of not smudging my stamped image! I can’t tell you how heartbreaking it is to finish a card and [...]

Around the House 11.0 – Brads

Brads can be found at pretty much any craft supply store these days. Companies like Making Memories have fashioned brads in just about every way imaginable. But for this blog, let’s go back to the basics. Today we are talking about brads, as in office supply brads, they can be purchased in a box of [...]

Christmas time is here…almost!

Today I had grand plans to design notecards sets and investigate a new product line for BeaOriginal (which is going to be awesome when I get around to it, so look out for it!). I walked into my craft room only to see a recent Michaels Arts and Crafts purchase lying on my table: Christmas [...]

Just BEAD it!

And for the movie buffs… I’ve got the need, the need for BEADS! Alright, all jokes aside! I’ve been looking for new ways to use some of my old craft supplies on my cards. With money tight for a lot of folks these days, I think creatively using supplies already on hand is a great [...]

If you can’t find it, make it!

Looking at my cards and creations, one accent frequently used is ribbon. As is the case with most crafters.  Purchasing ribbon, like all other crafting tools, can really add up.  There are millions of ribbons out there, ribbons for baby announcements, wedding invitations, shower invitations, you name it, and it is probably out there lining [...]
