Beautiful paper crafting projects!

Here’s another droolworthy project from Glenda Tkalac, February’s guest designer! This was art journal page was embellished using our Geekery kit, released this month.

I just love art journaling, don’t you? I love it for the same reason I was initially drawn to scrapbooking – why have a plain old journal or photo album when you can make them so lovely, funky, and cool?


One of our loyal readers, Merdrey, (I admit, we are great fans of hers, as well!) created this with our Gams & Garters kit (and Ball & Chain add-on kit), released last month. I think it is absolutely stunning!

NOTE: IF YOU TRIED TO ORDER the Gams & Garters kit in the last 24 hours or so, the listing sold out. However, we actually have THREE LEFT! They are now listed on our Etsy shop here.


Isn’t this sweet? Look at all the delicious little details!
