A couple weeks ago, Megan from Above Rubies Studio came to Wisconsin and visited the Craft-e-Corner office! It was such a pleasure to meet her. (After all, I've been watching her instructional videos and reading her blog for quite some time now.) She was so kind and sweet and we are so thankful to be working with her.
Every Tuesday she posts a new video showing a new technique or project idea, and she said we could share it with all of you! We all need new ideas, so I am very happy to share this! It's a really cute canvas wall décor project she made using the Cricut Imagine Machine. I hope you like it, and there will be more to come! See more tutorials here.
Quote of the Day
"What we hope ever to do with ease we may learn first to do with diligence."
Think back to a time when someone said something to you and it left a major impact on your life that you'll never forget. Can you picture the setting when your spouse said "I do"? How about the first time your baby said "Mama"? Or that random day that a passer-by smiled and simply said "Hello" and brightened your day.
Words are so powerful! We use them without a thought, but they really do impact our everyday lives and can change how we feel. One of my favorite memories is when I was sick and had been in bed for several days when my daughter came to sit by me. She stroked my hair and told me I was beautiful and that she loved me. I'm pretty sure that was the best "medicine" I've ever had as it immediately made me feel better. And all it took was a couple words. (really, really sweet ones)
So when you're crafting, keep those things in mind and don't forget the words! Titling your scrapbook pages and creating catchy card phrases is a great start. But don't stop there!...
