Halloween Clay Clips **Makin's Clay & Tattered Angels & Canvas Corp & Beacon**

I wanted to play with the idea of making some cute little clips for Halloween to place on treat bags, tags, cards, mixed media, banners, planners, or some other fun project.  The best way to make a cute little figure is clay, you can make any shape you want and it looks amazing.

Here is the video tutorial on how to make these cute little clips.

These little Halloween characters are just to fun to make.  A cute bat, jack-o-lantern, ghost, and cat.  Take a look at them up close.

Each character is glued to the back of a canvas corp black clothespin clip to make them able to clip to many different projects.

Here is also my latest unboxing video of my Makin's Clay supplies including my fun new tool to shape and mold clay.

Have a great Halloween!!

Product Review - Squeaky Clean Stamp Cleaner by Brutus Monroe

In my first box of items fro Brutus Monroe came this little bottle of stamps cleaner called Squeaky Clean Stamp Cleaner.  I had to test it out on as many things I possibly could to see if it held up to its name and how good or bad it really was.  I was blown away with how amazing this little bottle of cleaner was.  It is truly an amazing liquid in a bottle that can clean stamps, stamp blocks, stamps pads, and craft mats.

This really magic in a bottle than make make your stamps like new again!!  It is non toxic and even helps your hands feel soft and smooth.  I took a bunch of old dirty stamps and cleaned them with this amazing cleaner and it amazing me how well it cleaned each and every stamp from rubber mounted, acrylic, cling, and even foam.  Stamps of every brand and quality looked amazing after being cleaned.

I even tried other inks on the Brutus Monroe stamps to see how well it cleaned up with the Squeaky Clean Stamp Cleaner and every single brand I tried cleaned right off the stamps.  Check out my product review video to see just how amazing this cleaner really is!!

I even cleaned off my stamp blocks, stamp mats, and my craft mat and got them looking so much better with just a little spray and a paper towel.  So check it out the stamps cleaner, you will not be disappointed!!  It is specially formulated to work with the Brutus Monroe Stamps and Inks by it does play nice with all other brands too!

Time to get Squeaky Clean and get your stamps ready for crafting!!

Review of Paper Pumpkin Kit Card by Stampin Up

I picked up this box from a CKC convention about 2 years ago.  It is from Stampin Up and it is a card kit program called Paper Pumpkin.  I have not touch it since I got it except for taking the ink out of it, and have since lost the kink, boo.  As I was cleaning up my studio I came across the kit again and thought, let do this!!  So here are the 4 cards that were in the kit.


There is a special going on right now for buy one and the get next half off.  I do not work for Stampin Up or get any profit from this post, just a fun things I found in my stash from a conference from years past.


The kit made 4 card and had everything in it to make the cards (except I lost the ink) including the envelopes.  Check out my video tutorial on how to make the card and how fun this kit idea is.

Now I have 4 cute thank you cards to have of hand for when I need to send a thank you note!!  How great!!

DIY Candy Apple Jars

Fall is coming and with fall we have apples, harvest, turning leaves (well not here in Texas but other places of the world), and pumpkins.  I love to play with the idea of food as art, and for this idea I made little apples out of jars and filled them with candy in red or green to look like little red and green apples.  I like to give these as gifts for the kids teachers, but it could also be used for a party favor, home decor item, table setting item for Thanksgiving, the ideas are endless!!

Here is a full video tutorial on how I made these fun little apple jars. 

I used some of the amazing Tattered Angels Stained Glass and Glimmer Glam paints to make the glass change color, then some Makin's Clay for the leave and stem at the top, and to hold it all together some Beacon 3 in 1 glue.

Happy Fall Y'all as they say here in Texas!
