Using my Copic Markers with my Airbrush Compressor really gave the truck the rusty look I was going for.


I love how the 7gypsies American Vintage Paper and the Rinea Foiled Paper go together to help pull my card together.

Etching Old Picture Frames To Give Them New Life

Hello! Today I am sharing how I etched on some old picture frames to give them new life. I found some wall art at a garage sale and thought it would be fun to etch the glass on the pictures.


Using a marker, I traced around the photo in the frame, so I knew where I wanted to do my etching. 


Then I found some images of birds on the internet and cut them out with my Silhouette Studio Program and my Silhouette Cameo using the etchall etchmask.  Once I had the birds cut out, I stuck the etchmask onto the front of the glass making sure I had the correct placement of them by looking at my traced marker lines.


Then following the direction of the etchall etching creme, I added the creme over the cut out bird areas and let sit for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, I scrapped up the creme and placed back into the jar and washed off the extra creme from the glass piece and removed the etchmask.
Dried and added the glass and photo back in the frame and I was done. Super easy!

Remember When Blog Hop

Hello! Today a bunch of us designers got together for a Remember When Blog Hop. Our only requirement was to use products that were at least a decade old. Since 80% of the supplies I own are at least that old I was excited to get to use some of my stash up. Make sure to scroll to the bottom of my post for prize info and for the links to everyone else's blogs.
I used to be a huge Thickers and chipboard letter addict but then I just stopped using them. Leaving me with hundreds of packages of them. I have been wanting to create a layout like this for a long time where I used several of the letters but just never got around to it. Well, now I have!


I store all my Thickers and chipboard letters in these huge metal mesh drawers and they are all organized by color. This is just one of my drawers... crazy huh!


Watch my video tutorial below for the process of how I did my page.
