Getting ready for the big day!! Plus a DT call!!

You know it's CHA time because I haven't been going to bed til' 2am and I've been getting up at around 5am!! LOL This is what happens every year for a lot of designers. We don't sleep. LOL We eat, breath, and think CHA.
I can't wait to see the HUGE CHA sign that hangs in front of the convention center. I think that's when it becomes real for me. It becomes even more real when we get in and see the HUGE room that looks like a warehouse and there are no rugs, no curtains, no displays...nothing and realize...Oh ya...that's me that has to put this booth together. LOL
I'm excited about the ton of projects my team have created for the booth! They are so beautiful!! As you can see they are super creative!!! I would like to give a special shout out to them and to my wonderful lead designers! They have worked endless amount of hours to make sure everything is ready! So shout out to Jen Deal, Erin Payne, Gina Lideros, Angel Bartonico, and Tricia Wilson. I want to give a shout out to my peeps in the UK too!! My bosses and my side kick, Tania! She rocks!
I wanted to show you a few of the samples that I have made in the last couple of days. They use a lot of my new stamps debuting at the show as well as our new WOW! Embossing powders!!!
Here is a canvas I made. The colors are a little crazy because I took the pictures at night.
I wanted to also show you a project that my daughter and lead designer, Angel Bartonico made for the booth. (again sorry about the colors but we were creating at night)

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.

I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!

Here are brief instructions on how to make it:


Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…

Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

I feel very privileged to be able to do some projects for the fabulous Altenew.
They celebrate 4 years this month, and WOW! Embossing Powders have been with them along the way. And now you can join in the fun and WIN prizes !!!!
We love how our products work so well with theirs… So let me show you what I've created….
We all love a bit of Sparkle, right !!

Let's start off with a video tutorial using the Altenew Blooming Bouquet Stamps and Dies with the Crafty Friends Stamps teamed up with WOW! Sparkles and Clear Gloss.

Hugs & Kisses

With this one I used the Altenew Halftone Hearts Stamp Set with matching word dies.

I stamped on a panel slightly smaller than my card base and embossed with WOW! Pink Robin, Goose and Bird of Paradise. I then die cut two hearts 'layered' in the panel, stuck the middle back in and raised the outer to create an eclipse card. I stamped the 'hugs & kisses' on a piece of card stock and did the Sparkle technique (instructions i…

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.

For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.

The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…
