lettering

how to add a personal touch

Emily’s Bites of Fun:

  • The art or process of forming letters. Also, letters inscribed. Lettering is an important part of card making, often incorporating various materials.  Stickers, rub-ons, stamping, and computer printing are easy and readily available lettering materials. Dimensional lettering, die cuts and hand-lettering add a personal touch. Calligraphy, illumination and engraving add elegance and style.
  • Don’t wait for a special occasion or a reason to connect.  Send an unexpected card for no particular reason.  A “thinking of you” or “just because” card can be one of the best ways to show someone you care.  Send one today!

Is there a difference in glue?

What to use for the best results

Emily’s Tips & Tricks: Some of my favorite and not-so favorite glues to use:

  • Glue Tips: When quilling, I like using Elmer’s regular glue for my projects, for several reasons. One, it dries clear; second, if I realize I made the wrong shape for example a loose circle but I needed a tight circle, I can pull the glued down tail up and re-roll. There’s an element of forgiveness and grace with Elmers. I recently realized that Elmer’s also makes a “New Stronger Formula” which is more of a yellow/brown color. This glue does not dry clear and as a result, I have ruined several projects.I do also like using Alene’s tacky glue for some of my quilling projects. I have learned that with tacky glue there is no forgiveness and grace. Once it on the paper, it stays there. As a result, I only use tacky glue when I want something to stay in place immediately such as when I use glistening/sparkly quilling paper or gluing a design to a metal or mirror magnet or making monogram letters.

This is a fun season as we look forward to Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day and spring!  I am holding a lot of classes in February and March with new classes in May, so make sure you visit my site to find one that fits your schedule.

February is Almost Here

a bunch of roses? how about a bunch of classes!

Remember, classes make a great gift for any occasion.  Don’t forget to see the info on my new Wine Charm class at Goose Ridge Tasting Room in Woodinville in May.  Maybe do this class together for a date night, a birthday or an anniversary!  Whatever the occasion, it will be a great time.

I am also starting new classes at Ben Franklin in May – see below for details.

EMILY’S BITES OF FUN: 

Even the Envelope has a history behind it!

  • The Babylonians first wrapped and baked their messages in thin sheets of clay.  Later envelopes were made of cloth, animal skins, or vegetable parts, and prior to 1840 all envelopes were handmade.
  • George Wilson patented the method of tessellating (tiling) a number of envelope patterns across and down a large sheet.  In 1845, Edwin Hill and Warren de la Rue obtained a patent for a steam- driven machine that cut out an envelope shape, then created and folded it.  Thomas Waymouth, who had previously worked on paper bag machinery, developed a self-gumming and folding machine for Berlin and Jones in the late 1860’s.
  • Rectangular envelopes are preferred by the postal service, which reduces the amount of sorting needed to line up all the envelopes with the addresses reading the same way.

What a Hoot!

EMILY’S BITES OF FUN: 

Greeting Card Fun Facts:

  • U.S. consumers purchase approximately seven billion greeting cards each year, generating nearly $7.5 billion in retail sales.
  • Women are more likely than men to buy several cards at once.  However, men generally spend more on a single card.
  • Until Christmas 1961, the UK Post Office used to deliver cards on Christmas morning.

A NOTE FROM EMILY:

Speaking of hoots!  I love owls and you can tell by some of the cards that I make.  They are fun just sitting on a branch or fence and it’s fun to give them eyes and different characteristics.  Even though we don’t have any animals of our own in the house, I love the birds outside in my yard as they come each day to see what’s to eat.  I always make sure those feeders are filled up just for them.

I am making some really cool cards in the next few months.  Join me, won’t you?

Greeting card fun facts taken from “The Encyclopedia of Greeting Card Tools & Techniques by Susan Pickering Rothamel”

Happy new year!  Check out what’s new!

EMILY’S BITES OF FUN: 

New Year’s Resolutions:  We all know them and we all have tried them.  Something to consider is when you make your list even if it is just one thing, make sure you also write down your obstacles and challenges that you may face when trying to obtain those intentions.  Then, have a list of how you will deal with the obstacles (your plan B’s).  That will help you know it won’t always be perfect but you will at least be aware that there will be obstacles and have a plan how to deal with them.  Only 8% of people actually keep their New Year’s Resolutions.  This might help in keeping them.

A NOTE FROM EMILY:

It was a wonderful holiday season!  My family and I got away to California in the sunshine and “dried” out a bit.  Don’t get me wrong, it was lovely here in Washington when it snowed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day but getting to a warmer climate was also wonderful.  Watching the holidays through my children’s eyes was quite an experience.  They are just so amazed at the little things that it makes me also step back and enjoy those little bits of wonder too.  Hope you had a wonderful season of celebration no matter how you celebrated.

Is one of your resolutions to learn more crafts this year?  Sign up for a class below and let’s get that good intention taken care of.

Small bites of fun:

Need a last minute finger-food this weekend, check out these “Santa Strawberries” 

Santa Strawberries Recipe
Ingredients:
1 dozen strawberries
1 cup whipped cream
a handful of chocolate sprinkles
Directions:
Using a pairing knife, slice the leafy end off each strawberry so they stand up evenly. Then slice the tip off to make a little hat.
Using a spoon or a large icing tip, place a large dollop (about 1-2 tsp) of whipped cream on top of the strawberry base. Plop the little hat on top. Add another small dollop of whipped cream to the tip of the hat to make a mock pom-pom.
Place two chocolate sprinkles in the Santas “face” for the eyes. Using a toothpick, place two very small splotches of whipped cream down the front of the strawberry for buttons.
You’re done! It’s that easy. If you don’t eat them right away, store them in the fridge to keep them cold. Santa doesn’t do well with heat.

EMILY’S BITES OF FUN: 

There’s More to Christmas…
There’s more, much more to Christmas
Than candle-light and cheer;
It’s the spirit of sweet friendship
That brightens all the year;
It’s thoughtfulness and kindness,
It’s hope reborn again,
For peace, for understanding
And for goodwill to men!
~ Anonymous

A NOTE FROM EMILY:

No matter how you celebrate the holidays or if you don’t celebrate them at all it is still a special time.  My children are getting pretty excited and we even had to move the presents from under the tree (advice from my 4-year old) and replace them with stuffed toys because brother (who is almost 2) wouldn’t leave them alone.  The wonder and excitement of Christmas  through the eyes of a child is priceless.  Take time this season to find the “wonder” in things you may have not noticed before…it’s worth it!
