I have a fellow crafter and blogger that I love to follow. Her name is Melody Lane and she does awesome crafting videos and even has a daily vlog channel of other things she does in her day. Her website is full of great information and project ideas and there is always something to learn from her You Tube crafting tutorials. Today she posted a video on how to make your own colored foam adhesive and I just had to share. It is awesome and something I can’t believe I never thought of. Can’t wait to give it a try and save money making foam dots (or squares, strips, triangles, etc) in colors to match my project. Check out her sites and check out this video. It is and AWESOME idea!

They are released every Wednesday and there have been so many awesome ones that I find myself checking Craft Room often to see what the next “free cuts” will be. Every now and then, a cut will stay up for more than a week or they will stick a mystery cut in there. On this particular trip into the Craft Room program, Spring Holiday Cards was the free cut. I had so much fun making St. Patrick’s Day cards and Easter Cards. I was even able to play with one in Craft Room and turn it into a birthday/special day type card. When you use the software, you are able to hide some of the cut lines and modify the images a little. It is so much fun and so addicting. Here are the few cards I made that lazy Sunday afternoon. I’ll do my best to list the supplies I used though some of this stuff I have had forever and I’m not sure where I got them. All of these images were cut from the Spring Holiday Cards cartridge at 3″ and are on a standard 4 1/2″ x 5″ card. Continue reading
