Davi created this beautiful card with lace.






  • Michelle Van Etten


Beautiful necklace for any occasions.

Let’s begin!

  • I made this necklace for my mother. I have been trying to cut corners but still make amazing gifts. This necklace was made of paper.
  • I used the graphic 45 Transatlantic paper that is black and gold little circles. I used the Cricut to cut out 2 inch squares and cut those in half to create triangles. Than with the point up fold the right side over to the middle and the left side under to the middle.
  • Make 8 of these to make the base of the necklace. Than glue together in the middle, once dry using versamark cover the piece and cover in clear embossing powder. Keep adding embossing powder and then spray with iridescent gold glimmer mist heat until the spray melts into the embossing powder. Add stickles around the edges than add the diamond dust.
  • I created a fabric twisted rose to add to the center. Than draped the piece in Swarovski crystals in 2 colors to add a glam to my mom’s necklace.




Maggie Lamarre

Use a child baseball from the dollar store to create a stunning home décor.




  • Cover the baseballs with pieces of brown paper bags from the grocery store, adhere torn scrapbook papers to the covered ball, spray mist with Glimmer Mist let dry, spray an additional colour.

  • Seal the paper using Fast finish laminate or mod podge, let dry.


  • Wrap twine around the ball, then adhere with buttons.



  • Follow this tutorial to create the vase using a candlestick.

Voila, done :)

Have a great week,
