Day of the Dead Artist Trading Cards

When I was invited to participate in a Halloween  swap, 
I couldn't resist in making up some sugar skull charms and matching ATC's! 
I really love how these came out and hope you will too!

Rubber Stamp Storage Idea

For those of you wondering on how I store my rubber stamps, - I use photo starage boxes!
So cool right?

 You can get them in clear or rainbow as I have here. 
You can find these at most craft supply stores. 

Dandelion Burst
One box contains the rubber stamps and the same color box holds the stamped design, ready to color, embellish and cut out!

Nothing but Owls
Its so nice to just grab a box, some markers and color what I need.

Altered Thrift Store Photo Cube

Personalize a photo cube with Joy® Embroidered Monograms!

In preparation of my Father-in-law's 80th Birthday, I wanted to give him something a little more personable. So I went to my local thrift store and looked around for something to 'alter'. 
When I saw the plain wooden photo cube, I new I had found just the right thing!
The letters below are his initials and they fit perfectly inside the cube! 
Read on for the tutorial.

You will need:

  • Joy® iron-on Left, Right & Center Embroidered Monograms
  • A photo cube
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Glitters and other embellishments
  • Scissors
  • Quick drying adhesive and diamond glaze.


  1. Cut a circle from the scrapbook paper that will fit inside your cube. 
  2. Adhere the monogram letters in place.
  3. Coat the inside of the cube with the diamond glaze and add your glitters and such. 
  4. While the glaze is still tacky, drop in your circle with letters.
  5. Paint over the letters with the glaze.
  6. Measure and cut the same scrapbook paper and adhere to the edges and outside of the cube. 
  7. Seal the paper with glaze.  

You can find Joy® embroidered, iron-on letters, letter sheets and appliqués at your local craft stores.
