BeaOrganized – Glitter

I have found myself using glitter more frequently on my cards and crafts. Fine glitters combined with the Xyron adhesive machines makes glitter shapes and backgrounds so simple! The problem with glitter is that it seems every time you open a new jar, the glitter never seems to fit back inside of it! I found [...]

BeaOrganized – Small Die Cut Rolodex

Small die cuts can be difficult to keep track of, and difficult to find exactly what you want when you need it. We saw this upcycled use for an old rolodex and fell in love! Sort your small die cuts in alphabetical order, and then slip in and store within a rolodex. If your rolodex [...]

BeaInspired – BBQ Time! – Outdoor Utensil Holder

Although it is still raining in Northern California, I was thinking about the upcoming summer and how excited I am for weekend days by the pool with my family. I thought I would create something fun to have on our summer table. A few restaurants in town use six-pack holders for utensils, or condiment holders. [...]

Around the House – Chalk

Everybody has their own style. One of my favorite things to do is create cards with someone specific in mind. Some of my co-workers and I sat down to think about a card for a colleague the other day. After reminiscing over several inside jokes we decided to go with a graffiti theme. My wheels [...]

Around the House – Glitter

Not too long ago we blogged on some Making Memories shimmer swirls that we purchased at a local craft store. After using the swirls, I loved the effect that they had on my cards, but wasn’t crazy about the effect on my pocketbook. After panning around my craft room looking for ways to emulate this [...]

Around the House – Postcards

Postcards are a fantastic way to create a simple card in a fast and easy way. Gather any postcards you have received and are okay parting with (some are just too fun to let go of). Simply attach the postcard to a solid colored backing (to cover up any writing). Then attach the postcard (with [...]

Around the House – Crackle Effect with White Glue

I found a tutorial on the Make the Best of Things that I wanted to try out for myself. Although a lot of my works shows a disposition towards clean lines and images, I do have a soft spot for distressed effects. The blog that caught my eyes was how to create a crackled effect [...]

Around the House – Soda Tabs

Soda tabs are one of those things that are easy to collect, just keep a small container right next to your recycling bin, to pop the tops and toss them into, when you’re done with your soda. These soda tabs also make great embellishments for cards! Recycle or upcycle (whatever your preferred term is!) the [...]

A few weeks ago we wrote a blog on how to make a rose or flower from leftover holiday tissue paper. We focused on how to take that flower and put it on a fun Valentine’s card. Today we wanted to showcase the full project from the Idea Room. To visit the Idea Room tutorial [...]
