Using your Vinyl Scraps, and Stamps!

Thank you for joining me!
Today I am showing you a short tutorial on what to do with leftover scraps of printable or indoor vinyl.
You may have pieces of this left over, and are wondering what to do with it. This is just one of many ideas!


I decided to try stamping it, and create custom washi tape with a Santoro London Gorguss girl stamp. I used a Bic marker to color the background first, and stamped the image with Versafine Onyx Black ink.


This ink is water resistant, and will allow my image to be permanent once dry!

To make the polka-dots stand out, I used a black sharpie to color them in.

It matches another roll of Washi from my stash!



All that was left to do was to cut it out, and my Tonic Studios Tim Holtz scissors make this a breeze!

I applied it to the border of my PC monitor, where I will be adding all of my favorite washi tapes!

I hope you try this, and use those leftover scraps of vinyl! This type of vinyl can be applied indoors, or to your favorite projects. I also used the vinyl on mt Father's Day Monocle Steampunk card!

Be inspired, Be blessed!- Raquel

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.
