Mixed Media Home Decor Project by DT Member
For this project I have used lot of awesome supplies from Craftyscrappers.
A brief description:
On how to create this Mixed Media Home Decor
  • For this project,I took a simple silver card stock and applied some Ash shimmer paste and let it dry.
  • Once its dried I run it through an embossing folder.Then I stuck this sheet to cardboard.
  • For second layer I took a gift wrapping shimmery sheet and again embossed it with same folder,then stuck that on top of base with help of double sided tape.
  • After that I stuck a window die cut from one of the pattern papers.
  • Next I used Craftyscrappers “IM Stuck On U” stamp set to stamp and water color these beautiful succulents.I did fussy cutting to these stamps and again attached with double sided tape.
  • The sentiment is a metal embellishment stuck on a background created using same ash shimmer paste and some blue and green metallic paints.

Mixed Media Layout by DT Member 
A brief description:
to create this lovely layout:
  •  Select a pattern paper of your choice.
  • Take some generous quantity of texture paste and spray shimmer spray “Grape Juice” to it.
  • Mix it well and apply this paste to the corner of the page using Feather Stencil from the store.
  • Next take a MDF sentiment and apply a coat of gesso to it.
  • Once dry spray it with shimmer sprays “sweet Pumpkin” and “Grape Juice”.
    Both the shades blended so well to give a beautiful shiny colour effect.
  • Spray these shimmer sprays to few mulberry paper flowers as well.

Coming back to today’s tutorial now….
We often give out gifts to kids for birthdays or even as birthday return gifts.
How about making environment-friendly treat bags to give these gifts.


Today, I am going to show you how to make pretty treat bags using two
stamp sets – Hogs & Kisses and Peek-a-boo.


Possible image 1
Here’s a look at the completed treat bags!


  • A4 sized colored papers
  • Stamp sets (Peek-a-boo and Hogs & Kisses)
  • Archival ink
  • Zig clean markers (or your choice of colors)
  • Scrap papers
  • Satin ribbon/twine
  • Foam adhesive
Possible image 1
A step-by-step pictorial guiding you in making your own treat bags.
so lets begin…



I took an A4 size paper. 
(The paper size would depend on the size of your gift.)
Folded half-inch margin at one edge.
Folded the remaining paper into half.


Folded /Scored half an inch at the one end of this folded paper
and one and a half inch at the other end. 

 Opened the sheet and cut the marked parts. 
On cutting/trimming the marked parts, you get a sheet with scored sides.
 I took Archival ink and my favorite stamp sets.
I took two images from the stamp set and stamped the images randomly all over the sheet (rotating the image randomly) Let the ink dry before the next step.

Here, I have used different colored papers to make the treat bags. You can also use a white sheet and lightly color these stamped images. 
Once the ink dried, I adhered the adhesive tape to the two margins on the sheet. Peeled open the tape and assembled the treat bag by bringing in the sides together. The one and a half inch margin remain open as it is the lid/cover of the treat bag.  Repeated the process with all the three bags.

And the treat bags are ready…. 
To decorate the treat bags….
On a watercolor card-stock, I stamped the critters from the Hogs and Kisses stamp set, using Archival ink. Colored the critters with zig markers and fussy cut them. 
Cut tags from scrap pieces of CS. 
Assemble the tag using the fussy-cut critters and the sentiments. 
Now fill the treat bags, tie a ribbon/twine around it to close it. 
Tie the tag along with the ribbon/twine.

 Here are all the finished treat bags.

BEAUTIFUL TAGS: a complete tutorial!

Hello friends,

 This is Anila over the blog today,
and i have some tags tutorial to share with you today,
using different techniques and mediums.




Who doesn’t love tags… 🙂
Stampers have used tags for years to create mini works of art.
A tag is small that is not too  intimidating very easy and fun to create..
that is .. it’s okay, even if you mess up.
Tags are great for experimenting with new techniques, too.


So I created these three easy yet fun tags with stamps, inks,
sprays ,stencils and shimmer pastes…


Possible image 1

 Here’s a look at the completed tags:



So lets begin with the tutorial…
(* picture heavy post!)


Possible image 1



To begin with, I took white colored ready tags…
You can even cut them from a white Cardstock,
of any size to create your own custom sized tags.
Ready made TAGS

Took the tag, secured it on the table with washi tape.
Then Secure the stencil over the tag with washi tape.
The stencil that i have used for this tag is from craftyscrappers
and its called,

Take sufficient amount of shimmer paste (Separate stencil and shimmer paste for each tag) and evenly spread it across/through the stencil.
The shimmer paste that i am using here is called,
Repeat the same for all the three tags.
After applying a generous layer of the shimmer paste,
I let it air-dry. (You can heat-set it too!) 
(this is how they look…)
Once dry I sprayed two of the tag with the coordinating shimmer sprays from my DT kit. (Spray each tag separately)
The shimmer pastes and shimmer sprays are extremely versatile and beautiful in itself.
The shimmer sprays that i used here are,
SHIMMER SPRAY-Grape juice and SHIMMER SPRAY-Sweet Pumpkin
(this is how they look…)
For the third tag, I coloured the background using distress ink. 
(Applying Distress inks on the craft mat and picked up the color with water brush) 


Let the tags dry again. 
(this is how they look…)


Next, I started layering the tags with pollens and lots of flowers.
I tried to use the matching colored flowers and pollens for each tag.
Like this stem color tag with coordinating flowers…
I stamped a seperate sentiment for each tag from Craftyscrappers stamp sets
and mounted them on the tag using foam adhesive.
I tied twines along with coordinating ribbon through the punched hole.
Lastly added matching sequins from craftyscrappers to add some elements.

Here’s are some of the close-ups of the tags:



For this Tag, i have used the sentiment from the stamp set, “Doodly Blooms”.



Some more close-ups:

For this Tag, i have used the sentiment from the stamp set, “Elephan-tastic Day!”
ST-ANL-11(elephantastic day)_768x768
Some more close-ups:



And For this Tag, i have used the sentiment from the stamp set, “Elephan-tastic Day!”
Some more close-ups:
So that’s all for today!
It was really exciting playing with the shimmer pastes and the shimmer sprays.
Can you tell me which tag is your favorite?

Do leave your feedback in the comments section.

We will be back with many more interesting projects
& tutorials by our team, so stay tuned!

Love to hear from you.

Hello Everyone,
This is Deepti... and I’m so excited to be on CraftyScrappers blog today,
with my first DT post. I hope you have seen my DT kit reveal video yesterday…
If not you can check it here
I got a variety of goodies and some of them I have used in this project that i am going to share with you today.

I ‘m sure everyone of you must have some empty jam/honey/sauce glass bottles/Jars at home and if you are clueless what to do with those bottles…
Then, continue reading this post and learn with my photo tutorial..
How to covert those plain glass Jars/bottles in to a perfect Home Decor..

So let’s begin… ( picture heavy post)

Craftyscrappers Supplies used:
Other Supplies used:



Chalk Paint – white

Jute chord

Metal Charms

Prepare Surface

I took a empty glass Jar, cleaned it’s surface properly and applied a coat of gesso.
A layer of gesso makes the surface ready for painting. 


Empty jar and gesso (before)

After one coat of gesso
Paint the background
Once dried, I painted its surface with white chalk paint ( you can use acrylics too) using sponge and let it air dry.

After applying chalk paint
Add Texture

Then I added the texture with Crafty Scrappers “Shimmer Paste” ( color – Dreams) using “Rose Bunch” stencil. You have to be very patient while doing this step…
I applied the Shimmer paste one side at a time and before applying it to another side ,
I let it air dry ( You can use heat gun to fasten this process :))
Close up to show the shimmer



Embellish it

I have used Jute chord, Metal charms,
Mulberry Roses & Crystal beaded Pollens
from Crafty Scrappers
to decorate my jar.
I loved the outcome…I hope you too…
some more shots.. 🙂
