Recently I was a guest on the Digi Scrap Geek podcast and we had a great time talking about all kinds of crafty things - click here to have a listen!
One of the topics we discussed was about products that help a digital scrapbooker try other kinds of crafts. My favorite digital "crossover" product is Craft Attitude Inkjet Film. It's super fun and easy to use on any surface, like paper, wood, canvas, metal, acrylic, glass or craft foam. Just print out your favorite images in reverse, coat the surface smoothly with a glue stick, then peel back the paper liner and press the film on to the surface (ink side down). This film has a soft matte finish, so it seems to just melt into the surface. Use it to customize anything you want with your favorite photos and digital graphics. Click here to see some of the projects I've made with it.

I painted some of my vintage wood spools and used them with a wood plaque to make a jewelry hanger. The width of the spools help prevent necklaces and bracelets from getting twisted and tangled. Click here for my full #craftyourstash tutorial over on the Bella Crafts blog.

I got a call the other day from a very nice woman who commissioned me to make a special gift for her boyfriend's birthday - a framed scrapbook layout featuring their photo and the lyrics to their favorite song.

Today the Designer Crafts Connection is playing with a fun line of stamps and ink, designed by my friend Ann Butler for Clearsnap. I used two of her 4-1/4" square Background Basics stamps, along with three colors from her Crafter's palette of pigment inks, to make a nice, neutral fabric panel for a small 15" accent pillow.

I'm still blogging over at Bella Crafts Publishing, after finishing my 20 Ways to Inspire series of weekly posts. Now every other Monday, I'll be pulling something from my stash and crafting with it - like this CD tin and a big roll of pink polka dot washi tape. Click here for the full tutorial.
Gotta get busy and #craftyourstash, people!
