Friday Finds

This week's finds...

I'd love to try hand lettering so I can add it to my scrapbook pages. I stumbled upon the How to Hand Letter YouTube channel and website. She offers LOTS of useful on her channel, and even sells worksheets for beginners in her Etsy shop.
 I have some nice brush tips markers and hope to start practicing soon!

Friday Finds

This week's Friday finds...

Faber-Castell Gelatos
This kit includes some other goodies to get you started creating mixed media art. They are in what looks like Chapstick containers, and have a creamy texture. You can color with them like crayons, and even add water for a watercolor effect. They can be used in many ways, so search for Gelatos techniques on youtube if you're interested. They can be purchased at, Michaels, in sets at Hobby Lobby, and various other stores.

Rub-ons (like these, these, and these)

(There are even rub-ons that resist Gelatos, distress inks, etc. so you can create cool effects with them.)

For stamping, I think a good cleaner and stamp cleaning pad are a m…

I create scrapbooks in chronological order, and am working on 2012. That's the year my mom passed, so it's been a hard one to create. Yet I'm reminded of so many wonderful memories even from that year. Despite her health, she was happy and smiling and enjoying life until she just couldn't anymore. I miss her so much.

And here's a page I made for my friend, Tanya. We've know each other since 2000. I'm so blessed to have her in my life!

Wow, some of the products have changed since I last worked on our memory books. Some of my new favorite products are:
Distress Oxide Ink Pads
Fun stencils and stamps
Nuvo drops

And I've always enjoyed working with paper flowers, embossing powder, rub-ons, and lots of fun brads and eyelets. We're lucky to l…
