Butterfly Greeting Card Set & Caddy by Monika Davis

Butterfly Greeting Card Set & Caddy! by Monika Davis

Make this feminine greeting card set with a matching caddy that will hold your cards and envelopes. The caddy is easy to make and can be refilled with other stationery items later. It is also a pretty d├ęcor item on any desk. Make four greeting cards to go in the caddy, using the same butterfly embellishments and lay-outs, but with different background techniques that will come in handy for future craft projects. Great for a stamp camp, or as a class project.  Want the full step-by-step instructions?  Head on over to Craft Project Central and subscribe to the month of July!

Art Journal Experiment: Wet on Wet with Crayon Resist and Salt!

Today I am sharing a video that is part of a series I am calling Art Journal Experiment!  An experiment is defined as "a course of action tentatively adopted without being sure of the eventual outcome."  This is how I view my art journal pages.  A place to try new things - to branch out - to risk - without being sure of the eventual outcome.  I hope these videos encourage you to experiment as well!

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  Open Your Eyes To The Beauty Around You
It's there.  Right in front of you.  Right inside of you.  Beauty.  All we need to do is be open to it.  Be willing to see it.  Be willing to share it with others.  In this art journal page I explored defining beauty.  This page was created for Paper Crafter's Library.  For full step-by-step videos for how I created the page and for a full supply list, head on over to Paper Crafter's Library by clicking on the badge in the upper right-hand corner of my blog and consider becoming a member!
