Here is another June 2016 Craft Project Central submission by Michelle Wecksler.

Painters Palette Art Magnet Set SP

Turn your refrigerator into an art gallery!  In this project you will learn how to take a stamped image and turn it into a magnet for your refrigerator.  You will create three blank art easel magnets and learn how to temporarily attach and replace the art that gets framed in each of the magnets.  You will also construct a tiny envelope to store your blank art “canvases” and your completed works of art!  The entire set of easel magnets, “canvases,” and Velcro attachment pieces are stored in a custom box perfect for gift giving!  This is a wonderful gift for a child as he or she will have a ton of fun creating their art masterpieces for framing on the refrigerator!

SU One Wild Ride


I was super happy to see the SU ONE WILD RIDE motorcycle stamp this catalog-
thanks to Dawn Griffith creating one for her Million Dollar Milestone!

It is a really cool one, too…with neat images and sentiments:

My stampers made this card at our New Catalog Kick Off Party last weekend. I had them cover a scrap piece of cardstock with foil adhered with a glue stick. Then they ran it through the Big Shot using the NEW Sparkle embossing folder. Make sure to use a glue stick because in my experience, using a tape runner or liquid glue made visible marks that showed through the foil. I also used Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil…it is a Wow moment when you see how cool it looks:)

I decided to share this card with the gang over at Stamp Ink Paper for their One Year Anniversary Challenge #52!

SU Birthday Blooms

June 13, 2016

I played along with the Creating Pretty Cards Monthly Challenge #60 today. You should, too! Remember, for every 10 submissions, Craft Project Central gives away a free month of tutorials!


And I decided to really challenge myself and use only what was in the scrap box on my desk. See, I have this box I “file” things in that don’t get used…it could be a scrap of ribbon or an image I did not use on a card or sometimes a die cut or shape of paper I did not use. So, I dug into my box to see what I could find…

SU Birthday Blossoms for CPC

I am not kidding you…I did not stamp anything…I just put stuff together from my scrap box using the sketch. I did have to punch a 2″ circle of Blushing Bride cardstock for the small border on my For You flower. I even added some enamel dots that matched a piece of DSP in my box. They were on my desk because I was packaging them for an event so I technically could use them!
