Wow..have you tried this stuff?

22 Sep

I was given the opportunity to create some cards for GRAFIX ARTS.  They sent me a package of their product called RUB-ONZ.    Here is a description of the product:

“Can’t find just the right rub-on for your project? Design your own quick and easy with Grafix Rub-onz Transfer Film. Use your favorite fonts, photos and clip art to create one of kind rub-ons perfect on multiple surfaces.

Grafix Rub-onz Transfer Film comes with two sets of films:
– A frosted rub-onz film for drawing or printing your design.
– An adhesive film with a white liner to transfer your design.

Personalize any project in 3 easy steps:

1. Create a design using an Inkjet/Laser printer, rubber stamp or draw by hand.
2. Apply the adhesive over the design.
3. Rub on to surface.

A great accent on scrapbooks, paper crafts, school projects, stationery, collage art and more. Easy to apply to paper, chipboard, transparencies, foam, wood, glass, plastic and other non-porous surfaces.Rub-onz Instructions

Grafix Rub-onz have a permanent adhesive and are acid free & archival!

Available in 8.5×11” packs of 4, 10, 25 or 50 sheets.

Each package includes equal sheets of
Rub-onz Film and Adhesive Film.


They asked me to make 4 – 5 cards using their product and they shipped me a package of the transfer paper and adhesive.  I did have to send my originals to them..but I was given the ok to share my creations on my blog…so as usual..I have created a SMILEBOX for you to see what I did with their product.

I will definitely use this stuff again!!

ROYGBIV, I love you!!

6 Aug

I have to tell you, seeing the colors of the rainbow all lined up, makes me giddy.  I mean I feel a surge of happiness just looking at something based on the simple colors of a rainbow.  I entered a swap for some ATC cards.  I needed to create the cards based something that is ME!  I have NEVER done these before..so I just made mine like a mini card.  I found a wonderful phrase to go with my design and of course, I added some POLKA DOTS and voilà, here is my finished project!

I found this wonderful product on ETSY.  I think the commercial name for them is DEW DROPS.  They make any project sparkle and add a little pizzaz.  I have tried to take a close up so you can see them.

You can really see the 3D effect on this one.  Such a happy project!

Can you believe I made 20 of those?  They were A LOT of work.  All the scraps are sewn first, then I sewed all the flower/button accessories, added sparkle, dew drops and polka dots!!  Lots of love in these.  I really enjoyed making them!

In the next few days I can reveal my PK GLITZ design team projects, I have to wait for them to post them, then I can show you!!  I also have to show you another finished project, the one I was calling the “MANTEL PROJECT”  It is done..pictures soon!!  Let me know how you like the ATC’s!!!!

Practical Scrappers: Another Design Team ENTRY for me!

3 Jul

This card I am entering in the Practical Scrappers open call for a Design Team member. I have to submit one project today and then I need to get a Scrapbook page done by Monday and get that submitted too. I only need to enter one of their challenges, but I want to do two, maybe to DOUBLE my chances? Who knows! Any how the challenges was to show how I used a BORDER PUNCH in a project.

The BORDER PUNCH I have used is Martha Stewart’s SCALLOP WITH 2 DOTS EDGE PUNCH. I have used it all over. I have layered my Dress cutout with it. I have layered my background with it and I have used it on the card edge. I have also used a Stampin’ Up! SCALLOP border also.

What makes this card different is that I have used the holes in the punch to weave strips of paper in and out of to create a very nice effect. Can you see it?

Let me know how you like the card and hey if I get enough responses, I will randomly pick a winner to send this card to for your use! Good Luck and please leave your comments!

Happy 4th, Bless our Country and our Servicemen who protect our freedom!!
