Have a COACH you need to thank?

I find that I'm usually the creative one in the bunch! You know how everyone seems to point you out and say, "She's creative, she can do it." Well, that is true, but time is usually a problem for me. Somehow, I always find the time to get it done.

So, when I had to make two coach's cards this weekend, I decided to list them on my Etsy site in the event that others need them too.

I can custom create any sport and in your team colors. I can do a card or a gift card holder.

Check them out in my Etsy shop and then send me a convo about your sport, colors and design.

How to create Glittered words

I've been on hiatus for too long. Sorry, recovering from the holidays.

I just created this card for my Etsy shop and thought I'd share instructions on how to create glittered words.

-I printed the saying on cardstock with my computer.
-I rubbed the paper with a dryer sheet to prevent the embossing powder from sticking where it's not supposed to be.
-I then used an embossing pen to write over the top of the words ROCKIN'.
-I then sprinkled black glittered embossing powder over the top and shook off the extra.
-I then heat embossed the glitter until melted.

This really adds a pop to all sorts of projects. You can add detail to any saying, title, clip art, embellishment, etc... and then emboss with any color of glittered embossing powder.
