Card Cache
It’s amazing what you can do with a handful of products when you get creative. In this episode of Art & Soul, versatility is the key. We show you how to use the same B&T Duos® paper and achieve completely different looks. We highlight fun features of masculine cards and layouts, showcase innovative ways to use My Stickease®, as well as turn the spotlight on the multi-card workshops in the Wishes Card Confidence Program™. Finally, Jeanette Lynton shares a special themed album she made to capture some of the priceless memories she recorded on her blog: now that’s versatility!


Adorable floral images combine with delightfully arranged sayings including: “those who bring sunshine into the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves” and “it is when you give of yourself that you truly give”. Available only in September.

My Art Day Project - Modern Quilling

On Saturday, August 22, our combined team of consultants, the Super Sassy Swappers, will get together in Cumberland, WI, to share new techniques with each other. We have Art Day 3 times a year, to coincide with the new Idea Book releases. We have a fantastic time bonding, snacking, and creating! This event is exclusive to consultants, if you would like to come to Art Day join my team!

The technique I’m sharing this time is quilling. Intead of the usual scrolling that you see in quilling I chose to create a flower. With this technique you can make a perfectly matched flower embellishment for your project. They are very easy to create!
