It was bound to happen, people. I finally got my hands on some of Tim Holtz’s magical Distress Oxide inks. I’d heard many great tales of their superior blendability, and I was eager to throw water on them as well, you know, so I could roll with the all those crafty YouTube experts. Now lucky for me, Tim is my … Read More

Cathy ZielskeCards, Tutorials8 Comments

A few weeks back I made a card using my honey comb stencil from Hero Arts. A few weeks after that, I saw this video by the amazing Nicole Sporh and wanted to make something similar, but the only problem was the stencil she used in her video was already sold out. I remembered my honey comb stencil and the rest … Read More

Today’s layout is a celebration of a few things: 1.) Cole and his fabulous junior year in life and in ultimate. 2.) How amazing a sport ultimate is in general. 3.)

Today is the first official day of summer in our house. No more school for Cole or Dan. (Aidan was done in May!) And while I may be handing off a summer Honey-Do list to my teacher hubby, who literally asked me this morning, first thing, “So, what should I do this summer?”, I do have a general list of … Read More

Today’s card began a few weeks back when I got my hands on a catalog from Hero Arts. Do you know about layering stamps?

I literally put this … Read More
