May Sunrise Kit

Here is a fun FREEBIE to use in this month’s challenge.  It is called, “May Sunrise.”  There is a background page and a 2″ x 3″ card and envelope template.  The card & envelope is saved in both jpg and png format so you can upload it and cut it out using software such as Cricut Design space.

To access the kit click here.  

 

 

Mother Ephemera Sheet

Your projects would also look really well with the Multimedia Crafts Digital Facebook freebie called, “Mother.”  To access it click here.

I made a one signature journal/ photo album using both of the freebie kits mentioned.  I used it along with some Graphic45 papers, Prima flowers, a napkin to decoupage with, some distress oxide inks and other bits and bobs.

 

I created some pockets, tuck spots and other ephemera to compliment the journal.  To watch a video flip through of what I made for this month check it out on YouTube.

April Craft Challenge 2022| Easter Theme: Embossing

Advertisements

We are kicking off the challenge for April with an Easter theme.  Follow along if you would like to and post your creations on the Multimedia Crafts Digital Facebook page.

The technique to use is embossing.  You may choose 3 items from the prompt list below.

April- Easter Theme – Embossing

Use hashtag #aprilfav2022

  • Embossing powder
  • Glitter
  • Glue gun/ glue
  • Glossy Accents
  • Wet media (Embossing pen, ink, paint, etc.)
  • Embossing folder/ machine
  • Paper
  • Emboss item/ flat item to rub across paper (See technique, “Embossing without a heat gun or embossing folder”) on Multimedia Crafts Digital blog on April 1, 2022)

For this month I made some ephemera to go into a journal I am working on.  I made these by using a combination of digital sheets, and from making some DIY creations using two embossing folders, die cut flowers, and other mixed media.

I included the two Multimedia Crafts freebie downloads that are available this month from the blog and Facebook page.  The blog freebie is called, “Floral Pocket 2022.”  The Facebook freebie is called, “April 2022 Easter Ephemera Sheet.”  To access it, simply visit the Multimedia Crafts Digital Facebook page, where you will find great information on the latest paper crafting ideas, videos, photos, sales from the Multimedia Craft Etsy hybrid and digital shops and more.   Go to “PHOTOS, then ALBUMS, then FREEBIE FILES. Scroll down until you see which kit you want.  This one will be there.

To watch the process video on how I made all the journal bits check out the video below.
