Create a Glittery Snowflake on Glowing Red Background


Imagine Blog

by Arjita Sepaha Singh

For today’s card, I used the Sparkle Embossing Powder to create the beautiful snowflake on a bright red cardstock. I used VersaMark Embossing Ink to stamp the snowflake. Once the embossing powder was melted I blended some red inks with a sponge dauber around the edges of the card. This adds a beautiful glow to the card and I finished the card with a sentiment in black. This is a perfect project to be mass-produced for your Christmas cards.

It’s Time To Deck The Halls {DIY & Frugally of Course!}


The Frugal Crafter Blog

Howdy friends! I think I have mentioned it several times lately that I am really excited for the holiday season. I have barely done a lick of shopping nor is there anything I am hoping to receive except joyful times with family and friends!

I was hoping to find wider ribbon but actually it worked out better…

The Art of Blogging

There are more blogs in existence than ever, yet more and more people are seduced by the idea of sharing their thoughts and ideas with the rest of the world.

As a matter of fact, it does seem as if there’s a war out there. Everyone is fighting for attention, there are so many things to learn and master. So many social networks, marketing techniques. There’s even an awful lot of content on blogging itself, which makes it even more frustrating.

From great pain to great motivation


Pointless Overthinking

   In my “journeys” on YouTube while listening to what the greatest people have to say about everything, I’ve noticed that so many of them got awesome because they were at a very low point in their lives and they decided to do something about it.

   It’s interesting how we feel the need of some sort of change when we’re suffering and it seems that the bigger the pain, the bigger the motivation can be. For example, Will Smith comes from a broke family where he had to work from a very early age. Tony Robbins has been abused as a kid by his mother and while growing up he got to a point where he got only 17 dollars which he gave to a child in a restaurant, this leaving him with nothing. Grant Cardone has been homeless for 6 months. Tom Bilyeu was obese. Eminem grew up…
