THIS IS WHAT YOU SHOULD MAKE MOM FOR MOTHER’S DAY…

May 5th, 2017

Well, Mother’s Day is already next week—so what are you planning to do for her? I mean there’s always the easy way out—you could go for the same ol,’ run-of-the-mill-type gifts; a bouquet of Spring flowers, gift cards to Starbucks, fancy perfume box sets, and everything else aligning those dedicated ‘seasonal’ shelves tucked in the back of department stores—or– you can switch it up!

Why not spend a little extra time this year and make Mom a handmade gift you know she’ll love? Here are a few project ideas, provided by the lovely ladies of RG’s Make Amazing Design Team, for you to spark up some inspiration and get creative! Remember— you only have 8 more days—So Let’s Get Craftin’!

Envelope Mini Album

As mentioned in Patricia’s blog post—It’s time to finally print out some of those photos stored up in your cell phone and put them to good use! Create a fun mini album to share some family pictures taken throughout the year. This album was designed using RG’s Mail Note Die from the Noteworthy Collection—creating a super cute added pocket to each page, perfect for storing special notes or mementos. See the blog post, HERE, for a short instructional video!

In fact, there are many other bible journaling techniques for you to try that will still get those creative juices flowing as you bring the scripture to life! (more…)

But let’s not put all our eggs in one basket yet… we still have a few more days before things get crackin’ over at the Garay’s.

SEND SOME SIBLING LOVE| FOR NATIONAL SIBLINGS DAY!

April 6th, 2017

Siblings are just the best… now. And while it probably felt like some sort of undeserved punishment growing up—as an adult it’s easy to see just how lucky we are to have them in our lives. This year, National Siblings Day is on Monday, April 10th–  so what better time to send some sisterly (or brotherly) love to your childhood partner-in-crime than now?! Create a handmade card from the heart and send it out via snail mail for a nice surprise from their favorite member of the family (and I don’t mean the dog).

Here are a few ways you can say ‘hey’ on sibling’s day

5 WAYS GOLD CAN MAKE YOUR NEXT PROJECT POP!

March 23rd, 2017

Gold can give any project that added touch of both style and charm. Whether it is used as a foil, splash, glitter, or paper—this metallic metal brings any work of art to life by providing that extra little sparkle or shine. If you’re unsure how to incorporate this precious metal into your paper craft designs– here are 5 ways gold can make your next project POP!

Use Watercolor Paper to Paint a Gorgeous Gold Landscape

1st Technique–Take watercolor paper and create a stencil-like impression by using the die as a “mask,” then spray gold splash directly on the die to create that outline look (pictured in the lower left-hand side of the paper). Second Technique–Spray gold splash on to a clear block, dab die onto the splash, then stamp directly on the watercolor paper (pictured in the right-hand side of the paper). Card uses Full Bloom die set from RG Silver & Gold collection.
