Re-purpose, Recycle And Re-use

House Cleaning I think 80% of paper crafting involves house cleaning of some sort and these combined posts and projects have been no exception. These embellishments actually began with the hope that I could quickly make some paper embellishments that resembled polymer clay charms as shown in a previous post. It was almost an epic fail aside from the frames but I didn’t want to throw all that work away so I came up with these little pieces.   I didn’t think too much of it but since I am way behind on my intended group participation I took a few...

Old Jewelry

Inspiration - Gatherings Old Jewelry I like to create my own ephemera as often as I can instead of buying pre-made items. My Pinterest board  Pretty Little Paper Crafts is filled with many random things, many of them not made with paper. That’s because when I see something with a wow factor my first thought is how can I translate that using paper. When I succeed I often find a new paper project that will keep me stocked up on ephemera and bonus…. more ideas usually flow.    These paper jewelry pieces were inspired by wearable art jewelry pieces or faux...

Easy DIY Wax Vellum Napkins & Washi

I was pleasantly surprised to find the napkins held up well with hot wax, provided you...

Memory Book Includes One Sheet Mini

Two projects in one I like projects that combine elements and this single project includes some very versatile projects, one began as a card design and the other can be a mini album, pockets, happy mail ephemera holder piece and a lot more (a mini journal book). These books are great gifts for when you don’t know what someone prefers, photo books or journaling as anyone can jot down a memory or add photos and tuck things in to pockets. Both are very interactive as well. In this case I’ve turned it in to a memory book for a relative...

Faux Transparent Stickers – Wax Vellum Tissue Paper

What began as.... This project began as some of the best scrap buster projects I have seen in a long time but wanting to follow along with one of them by using stickers I realized I didn’t have any…. what to do? Well I knew I wanted them matte and transparent if possible, I also knew I wasn’t going to buy another item. It had been in the back of my mind to try wax on Tim Holtz paper and some other hand stamped tissue that I had lying around so I did it and the results were beyond my...
