Use this SVG file to cut a glittery princess crown. #sponsored @CutCardStock
As a part of the CutCardStock design team, I am sharing this SVG file for a princess crown. I am using Gold Card Stock to cut the crown out. The file cuts from one 8.5 x 11″ piece. You can adjust the crown for an adult or child.
Many of the materials I use for post have been provided by different companies I work with.
Testing out two lines of ArtDeco paints for the similarities and differences. #affiliate @DecoArtAcrylicPaints
As a DecoArt Maker, we are sent products to use in our projects. Using some paint I already had along with some new bottles I requested, I am going to do a comparison of product lines. Looking at the Media line and the Enchanted line to see the paint similarities and paint differences.
The Media line has six interference colors. They are gold, green, turquoise, blue, violet, and magenta. Each color comes in a one-ounce bottle. When applied over a dark color you will see more opalescent color and less of the color shift. When applied over a light color you will see a sheer opalescent color but more of the color shift. Thin applications in a wash or glaze increase the visual interference effects.
Americana Enchanted comes in the same six color shifting hues plus an Ultra-Black Basecoat. The bottles are two ounces.
I also took a look at DecoArt Pearlizing Medium and the two different ways to use it.
An SVG to make a card for Mother’s Day. #affiliate
As a mom, I have to say some of the best presents are homemade. I love it when my daughters take the time to make me something. I’d rather they not spend money on me. This Mother’s Day Card is one with a few steps but it isn’t difficult to make. I think any mother would appreciate a handmade card.
I work with a few different companies and with this card, I was able to combine their products. The following links are affiliate links, they cost nothing for you to use and in fact, they help support this site. Thank you for using them.

Did you know you can paint with Distress Oxide ink pads? #affiliate #experimentalpainting
Distress Oxide ink pads create a very unique look, but did you know you can also paint with them? Just by adding water, you get a fun watercolor look. The colors mix easily but when you put them on top of each other they not only knock each other out but they blend and feed or spread. It is a very different effect. Light colors on top of dark colors actually show up and knock out the dark color while they blend together around the edges. The colors don’t get muddy when added together. You really need to see it to understand the reactions. The video below will show the reactions.

Samples sent from Beacon
I love visiting the Beacon booth at Creativation. Creativation+ was no different. Beacon is very generous to designers in giving sample products out and in this year’s case, sending samples. Many of their adhesives are now available in mini packs making them great for craft classes.
