Fellow crafters, do you ever find yourself in a crafting rut? “I’m running out of ideas…what should I create now that’s new and different?…I want to think out of the box, but which way do I turn?”
I too get stuck in ruts at times. Turn to the Elements of Art, fellow wonderer. I’ll be touching on texture in this particular post.
Adding texture to handmade paper goods is always a nice touch. Texture adds interest and a touch of the unexpected.

Valentine’s Day is LESS than a month away!!
I LOVE Valentine’s Day! I love the pretty red, pink and white patterns that come out in stores for this lovely day.
Tired of the same ol’ same ol’ Valentine goodies I’ve made in the past, I decided to make something new this year. These tags took quite a while to put together, but I truly adore how they came out! Made with a dash of inspiration, metallic paint, hand-cut from card stock, a few tablespoons of love, soft white ribbon, a cup of creativity and a fun fonted stamp, voila!:
The description as read from my Etsy shop:
“These special Valentine tags are a set of 10 (ten). A textured card stock painted with metallic paint is the backdrop for the eye catching font “Be My Valentine.” Dainty dots edge the heart and a loosely tied white ribbon may be untied and then reattached to your gift. The back of the tag is decorated yet blank, just waiting for your personalization. These tags are great for so many Valentine gift! Whether they be for candy bags, a hostess gift, or a gift box label, these “Be My Valentine” tags can be yours today!”
I have a love for card design and crafting. This blog is to shadow my journey as I explore avenues of card design and crafting, to capture the fruit of my labor and to inspire others. I find joy in making things (thanks for the inspiration, Grandma!)…I especially enjoy combining different mediums to make cards full of texture, detail and visual interest. An etsy shop is in the making….so stay tuned! In the meantime, check out my blog and explore http://www.etsy.com.
