A New Kit Full Reveal!

     Hi, it's Gia posting today to show you the new kit I designed for Altered Pages which is now available on the store website. After so many sneak peeks here and on Facebook I am so glad it is finally up and I can show you the full reveal! Of course you can make the project completely your own or you can follow along with the instructions provided- perfect for any level of skill and creativity. I hope you will take some time to "browse" through all of the amazing fall theme kits that are NEW this week by many of my design team mates. There are so many to choose from to get you in the mood for some spooky Halloween artsy fun!

 I decided to name this project "Voodoo, Hoodoo, and Magic" after the name of the Andy Skinner stencil it features called "Voodoo." You will receive a chipboard ring-bound book, stencil, collages, gold leafing, gelatos, and more! 

If you have not already acquired one, now would be a perfect time to order yourself a Gelli Plate. The backgrounds you can create using things like stencils, bubble wrap, plastic or aluminum foil, and so much more you might have laying around your studio are limited only by your imagination! Once you try it, you will be hooked. There is also a fabulous tutorial video on the Altered Pages website. I noticed that the punchinella (sequin waste) at Altered Pages is out of stock, so if you don't already have some from prior orders you may want to check out THIS stencil from Andy Skinner- you can use this "Sequin Waste" over and over again!

Don't forget to head over to the Altered Pages Challenge Blog because a NEW challenge has been posted! See you there!

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…
