Scraps of thoughts, photos and art


Looking for a simple yet fun idea for the holidays? Try handmade ornaments!

I’ve used a clear plastic ornament shape here as the base for my ornament.

Print out a digital stamp or stamp a rubber stamp with StazOn ink on a piece of acetate.

Color with Copic markers or Sharpies.

Cut out a circular piece of WonderFilm from P K Glitz to place on the front of the ornament.

Cut out your image to be smaller than the ornament and place on top of the WonderFilm to stick it down.

Sprinkle glitter around the outside and you’ve got a great border!

Tie a ribbon at the top and it’s done!

Have you tried digital stamps yet? You SHOULD! There are lots of great designs out there with Michelle’s images being some of the best!

Every Tuesday there will be a new challenge introduced on Michelle Perkett Studios Challenge Blog! Make sure to check out the blog for more ideas on meeting this week’s challenge!

There will be a prize involved!

This week is challenge 50 —-> make a Halloween card with more than 1 type of Halloween patterned paper AND use at least one of Michelle’s images.

If you don’t have any Michelle Perkett Studio images, you can purchase them at Michelle’s Etsy store. Check out the Michelle Perkett Studio Paper Craft Planet group and the CDAC group for great samples and inspiration!

Here’s a card from me using at least a couple patterned papers, all Halloween!

I’ve been busy using P K Glitz products on various projects that I can now post to show you! P K Glitz has a fantastic variety of glitter, embossing powder and glitzed embossing powder. Her add-on products are equally great like the Sticky Tape, Sticky Paper and WonderFilm. All of those items are terrific for either the glitter or embossing powder. Isn’t that FAB??!!!

I was lucky enough to receive the Vintage Summer May 2010 kit from Dixie Pieces (see the side bar for a clickable link to their store) to create with in September/October. The kit has lots of goodies – cardstock, paper, ribbon, acrylic stamps and lots of embellishments! There is some really fun We R Memory Keepers items and Pink Paislee papers in the kit that offer a nice variety for fun and spunky to more serious for those non-cutesy projects.

I’ll share a couple cards with you today and tomorrow we’ll look at a couple scrapbook pages.

I do love my glitter and embossing powder! Here’s a pretty simple card using up scraps (yea!). The leaves are punched from WonderFilm and Glitter Glitz’d. The words are heat embossed. What is WonderFilm? It’s a cool clear adhesive that has incredible sticking power —–> offered from P K Glitz. The glitter AND embossing powder is from P K also. Super because the glitter matches the embossing powder! I just love the sparkle!
