Head on over the the clearance section of the shop for a TON of great deals. Stamps, paper, flowers, and the list goes on. You know you’ll find something you need! 😉
Good morning. I can’t believe we are 1 month into school. So I guess it’s time for some Christmas cards!
For this first one I used the Brick wall technique that Lisa taught this month. I also used my blender to add the dots to my trees.
Copics: E53, E57, YG11, YG13, G07, R35, R39, R81,
Airbrush: BG10, E53
Here is my second card:
Copics: E21, E31, E35, E37, E50, G24, C1, R20, R24, R27, RV04, RV25
(I glimmer misted the background but it’s hard to see in the picture)
And this one is my favorite:
Copics: E21, E31, E33, E50, R20, R27, YG23, YG25, C1, C7, RV13, RV14, BG72, Y35
Airbrushed: Y35, BG10
If you have any questions on my cards or need any info on the Copic club feel free to PM me or leave a comment here.

I had fun with this kit! Super versatile! I did get a little obsessed with pinwheels this month, though. Click on image above to purchase.
Loved playing with Echo Park Summer papers here!

Here is a layout I created using seed beads:
Papers: Reminisce and BasicGrey’s Dasher Collection
Seed beads: Clear glass and red glass
Beads were used to enhance paper design, accent the flowers, and pinpoint the snowflake centres
1. First gather your supplies.
– Glossy Accents by Ranger
– Small container for your seed beads (Here, I’ve used a tiny fast-food BBQ sauce tub that I washed out and saved.)
– Beads of your choice
– Your project~ I have decided to embellish a journaling tag for this tutorial.
NOTE: You will also want something such as waxed paper to cover/protect your work area.
I use Glossy Accents by Ranger as my bead adhesive.
I prefer Glossy Accents because it has a fine precision- tip applicator, adheres things where I need it to, and adds a clear, hard coating that is shiny when it dries.
Additionally, it is ACID FREE!
2. Apply a small dab of Glossy Accents where you wish to adhere a bead to your project.
3. Then move your applicator tip over to your little tub of beads. Dab the tip of applicator onto the bead you want, “catching it” on the tiny amt of adhesive that it already on the tip.
4. Move applicator, with the caught bead, over to the dab of Glossy Accents on your project. Touch the bead to the adhesive on the project. The bead will go into place: it seems to “release” from it’s position on applicator’s tip. This works best if the applicator tip has only a tiny amount of adhesive on it- and the dab on your project is larger- effectively pulling the bead off the applicator. (Try this- you will see what I mean! LOL)
5. You can also use Glossy Accents in this way to adhere a line of beads, as seen in photo B]. Work in a 1-inch long line.
Just work a little more quickly, being sure the line of adhesive you have applied to the area does not start to dry out.
If it does, reapply. Glossy Accents works on curved lines in the same way!
6. Don’t worry: the Glossy Accents adhering the beads will look “wet,” but only for a few minutes! Allow to dry flat.
7. All dry and ready to use on your Layout!
Other ideas for using seed beads:
1. Stickles and cardstock flower-shapes can be covered in beads, then sealed with Glossy Accents to embellish the centre of a handmade flower, as seen here:
2. Use a rounded “pile” of seed beads sealed with Glossy Accents to enhance a flower:

3. Use a fine line of beads to accent a detail on patterned paper ( in this case a fern leaf):

4. Use your beads to accent an embellishment, in this case a butterfly:
5. Embellish a cardstock medallion with concentric rings of beads to accent its’ pattern:
6. Polka-dotted patterned paper becomes a 3-D background when beads are adhered to it to accentuate its’ visual impact:

Have fun with those seed beads and “Thanks” for visiting us here at the SNS Blog today for this scrappy “How-to” all about seed beads! Come back soon!

The SnS August kit is so well named…..” Summer Adventures”. The ribbons just cry out to be used with your summer photos but it doesn’t stop there because they are so versatile.
I’d like to share my layouts with you now.
I used a technique of making Serendipity squares on this LO which is my challenge for you this month so please go check that out in the forum.
I tied ribbon around the squares and used strips of ribbon and attached them with some brads.
I used the cute little yellow ric rac ribbon as the string to make my banner on this page about my cute grandnephew Evan.
Catch A Wave
On this page I wanted to bring the focus to the right side of the page to balance the big wave on the left. To do this I used the aqua ric rac ribbon as a vertical line between the papers.
I used the yellow ric rac to underline my journaling.
Play All Day
For this page I wanted to bring the eye down from the title and photos
to the journaling and flower embellishments.
I ran a strip of ribbon horizontally across the page and “cinched” it in periodically with some brads.
Having fun in the pool tires little boys out!
I used some of the sheer yellow ribbon to make a bow and tie on my “Memories” charm.
2 In The Bed…
A favourite thing of mine to do with ribbon is ruffle it. It gives your page so much added dimension.
The polka dot ribbon went perfectly with my patterned paper!
Fun In The Sun
I love how the ribbon bow gave my octupus some added fun and whimsy!
I hope you enjoyed my projects this month. The ribbons are so amazing!
