You'll also find our wonderful design team's creations!  They have created a wide variety of items.  I also have them listed on my right side bar.

Here's what I did for the Anything Goes PSC41 Challenge:

I've bee wanting to decorate these cute little bags for some time.  I ran across this baby wrapping paper & decided to fussy cut some of the images out. The stork & clouds.  I used a Lost & Found Brad with my ribbon & congrats banner.  So simple & I loved upcycling the bag & the wrapping paper.  I mostly give gift cards, so this is going to work real well!

Thanks for stopping by & I hope you'll enter our challenge this week to get qualified for the fantastic prize from Avocado Arts!

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.

DecoArt Americana Paint is best for Gelli Prints

I love making gelli prints.  I've used a variety of types of paints.  The best I've found is DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paints.  The consistency of the paint is perfect for spreading on the gelli plate. 
 On all the background gelli prints I used DecoArt Jacobean Floral stencil and the following Americana paint: Autumn Red, Antique Rose, Cadmium Yellow, and Moon Yellow. I changed which order I was putting them on the plate. This first one I embellished with Unity Stamps I'm so Happy and Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.  New Dawn Rooster by Unity Stamps and Wild Orchid Flowers.

 This last card-you can really tell how using numerous gelli prints together is like having matching designer paper!!  Except you created it yourself! The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, flowers from Wild Orchid and Flourishes. I hope you're inspired to design your own cards. Everyone loves getting a handmade card!
