The latest special issue from Paper Crafts Magazine will very shortly be available. Paper Crafting Tips and Tricks is stunning!! It inspired me to get into my office and start creating! The issue is all about the how-to. One section is about how to stamp with objects around your house, other topics include embossing, stamping with sentiments, using twine, (there are many, many more ideas) and then there is my section, Cork, Burlap, and Canvas. I am very, very proud of the projects I created for this issue and to see it in real life is a thrill!
(if you are looking to purchase the issue, click the title of the magazine, just above, trust me, you need this one:))
And what’s an even bigger thrill is to see your projects all featured on the Moxie Fab World as one of their challenges!! And to have Cath Edvalson say the nicest things about you…coming from one of the nicest and most genuine people you will ever meet!
The challenge is to create a project using one of the items I share over on the Moxie Fab World blog. You have until November 19 to upload your project to a Flickr group. All the details and deadlines can be found at the post HERE.
This is one of my projects that incorporates the technique of rolling a piece of canvas to create a flower. Start by cutting a circle from canvas. Cut a spiral towards the center, leaving a small circle, for the base, at the inside. Start rolling from the outside. You can make the flowers tight and small, or roll them looser. You can see the pearl-centered flowers were rolled tightly and the brad-centered flower was loose.
I hope you take the challenge and try something new! Be sure and visit the Moxie Fab World blog all week for more gorgeous inspiration, ideas, and challenges!
thanks for stopping by!
The personal stuff: When I was making these projects, I was in the middle of pain and the confusion of not knowing what was happening to me. Then my diagnosis arrived as I was finishing them off. At that point, I didn’t even know if I would be able to continue to paper craft. I was worried it was my last hurrah. These projects mean the world to me and I truly am very proud of them. And maybe a bit proud of myself for pushing through and accomplishing a difficult task. I am a happy girl today!
