Hellooooo everyone! Sorry I have been away for so long, but I have been working on getting my stamp artwork done and creating an enamel pin design.  All of that was for...MY KICKSTARTER! I am beyond thrilled to announce this! I have been working on this project for over a month and there were a few setbacks, but I have all of the samples done and now the campaign is live.  If you order the stamps from the campaign, they will be slightly lower than the individual prices listed here, mainly because I will be making them in much larger quantities, likewise with the enamel pin.  I will be working hard to promote this campaign but I will have more time for card videos now...I remember that I owe you all a video about making a pop-up card, I have filmed it, I just need to edit.  That's all for today, and as always, happy crafting!

Make a Mini Album with Quick Quotes, Want2Scrap, and Xyron

Hi everyone, Gabriela here today with a mini album from Want2Scrap featuring a beautiful new collection from Quick Quotes called Winter Bliss. First, these papers are gorgeous and fun. The colors are great for a winter theme, but I'm sure you will find reasons to use them all year long.




This mini album is shaped like a camera, so I had some fun turning the cover into a shaker window that looks like a real camera, check out the video below.



I also used my Xyron Creative Station to make the adhering the paper easier and neater, this was a fun album to make and I hope it gives you some ideas for a mini of your own.  Thanks for stopping by.

Hi everyone, Gabriela here today and I finally made a page I've been thinking about for a while. I thought it would be fun to make a page with a shaker window, so I tried it out. I used a chipboard cutout from Want2Scrap along with some of their bling and of course paper and ink from Quick Quotes. I scrapped a picture of my husband and I on vacation in New Orleans a few years ago, it's one of my favorite pictures of us and it seemed like a good fit for this page.

Xyron and Quick Quotes, Destash Those Scraps

Cards, Xyron, How to, Tutorial, Paper crafting, Crafts, Diy, ToolsGabriela SimsComment

Hi everyone, Gabriela here today with a video that will help you destash your scraps. I have so many nice scraps from several Quick Quotes Collections that I hate to waste them, so here is a fun way to combine your scraps with a paper trimmer and die cutting to get a brand new look of patterned background paper.



I did a video for this technique because I thought that would be easier to follow than pictures. If you use this technique, you can make about a dozen cards in an hour. This technique would also work on a scrap page as a cool background accent, check out the video below.



I hope the video was easy to follow and that you have a great new way to use your scraps and make them brand new again. Thanks for stopping by.

I am so happy to share this, the Xyron Creative Station made this so easy to finish. Until next time, Happy Crafting and stay safe in these crafting streets.
