Stamp a Scene with Paper Piecing

Even with the start of school this week, I am still dreaming of a relaxing tropical vacation.  Sigh.  Since a trip to far off isles isn't in my near future, I'll keep living vicariously through card making for now.

Monkey Thanks a Bunch Banana Gift Tag

I craft a good game, but I am a gift giving slacker.  I have so much fun putting together fun paper-crafted gift ideas, but they rarely leave my craft room.  I think I have finally come up with a simple gift idea that requires minimum effort.  Have a look...

Watermelon Clock Hack

There is nothing quite as iconic as watermelon in summer.  This colorful, round, juicy fruit is so fun and pretty it practically begs to be turned into all types of crafts, even a clock.  A watermelon clock?  Who knew?!

Bright Paper Pineapple Boxes

I have officially fallen in love with the pineapple trend.  While I don't yet own any t-shirts or shoes embellished with pineapples, I sure do think they are charming.  A couple of weeks ago I saw this pineapple box Silhouette cut file over on Amy Robison Designs IG feed and I was just giddy.

Stretch your HSN WRMK Fuse Tool Kit: Make Up To 30 Cards!

Amanda Coleman Designs FTC Disclosure

I have known about the WRMK Fuse tool for some time now and was fascinated by how easy it made it to customize pocket scrapbooking.  But alas, I don't scrapbook.  Not even one little bit.  I was so excited when WRMK came out with a Fuse Kit that had all kinds of fusible papers (FUSIBLE PAPERS!!!) and card making embellishments.  I was hooked the minute I tried it.  Check it out...

Each one of these cards was made with the fusible papers and embellishments that come with the HSN WRMK Fuse Kit.  As a stand alone kit, there are enough supplies to make 12 custom fusible cards.  But wait...there's more!!!
