JFF Tag

Hi crafty friends! 

In case you haven't heard this month the Altered Pages "gang" is teaming up with Just For Fun Rubber Stamps.  
I am already in love and I have only had time to play with one of their stamps so far.  
I also wanted remind you to head over  here  to check out the Altered Pages December special on ALL DIGITAL collages.  This month any  *DIGITAL*  collage sheet is only $1.00!  Yes, $1.00!!!  Stock up now for all your crafting and collage needs for the entire year of 2015, for only a buck a piece!  This is only during December though!

Okay, back to the project.   :-)   I am going to share with you a quick little tag that I made using this crazy cool JFF stamp and Altered Pages products.  



My tag today is not holiday related. I know that for most of us there is an endless supply of reasons to need a Christmas themed gift, but sometimes we have events or December birthdays to celebrate and we might not always want a holiday theme.  
So, it is nice to have a card or tag ready to go in case 
you need a "generic" little giftie.  
That is what I am planning ahead for now. 

I started with a large oversize tag that I had previous used to clean my Gelli plate.  I always try and clean my Gelli plate with something that I can work into a future project and I keep it in my stash.  This has a pretty metallic print that was in gold acrylic paint.  I then gathered some goodies that caught my eye and that I thought would go nicely with the adorable Zen-tangle 
inspired JFF tree stamp that I chose. 
I stamped the tree image with StazOn in black and then colored in with coral and mint green fine point markers.  I then added a few elements from Glitz and adhered them down with my Zig two way glue pen.  The little bits of fun I added from Glitz were WHATNOTS and Puffy Words in the "77" collection, but there are so many cute options of stickers, gems, dew drops, etc. at Altered Pages you will be sure to find your very own style. 

Have fun making yours!

Rolling with my Gel Press

I love experimenting with different ways to create texture and interest on my Gel Press and for many years now I have turned to fun foam to help do this when monoprinting.  I love to team the fun foam with my dies to create my own stamps and texture plates.  I used this techniques for my prints in January that I shared here on the blog. There are lots of dies that have detail, meaning lots of scrap pieces which you can randomly stick onto cardboard giving you a stamp as well as using the actually die cut shape as a stamp.  Another idea is using them attached to a toilet roll to create a brayer like roller was shared at my local scrapbook store and on a video by Birgit Koopsen last year.  I love playing with this method. The toilet roll is slipped over a paint roller handle.


Here you can see some of my texture creations that I have on hand for my play today.

One texture I love is created using a piece of burlap ribbon, which I have stuck onto a toilet roll. My first layer above used th…

The Gift Card Card

Robin here and today I have a project for you that is a fun way to give gift cards or cash.  

You will need two envelopes for this project.  One is what the post office calls the 6 1/4 Commercial envelope.  When I was growing up we just called it a letter envelope.  It's a smaller rectangle than the #10, being just 3 5/8" x 6 1/4".  The other is a standard A6.  I chose the A6 because it fits inside the letter envelope when it's folded in half and it's also large enough to hold a check or cash, as well as a gift card.



With the flap against the body of the envelope, fold it in half from side to side.  Cut the flap in half and trim the inside cuts at an angle so that they don't interfere with the fold or get bunched up. 



Decorate the flap side of your envelope.  This will be the inside of your card.  Fold the envelope again and decorate the side that will be the front of your card.





Cut a panel of card stock to fit inside the 6 1/4 Commercial (letter) envelope.  Att…
