A Cute Little Creative Paperclay® Santa Ornament or Tag


I’m getting in the Christmas spirit now that Thanksgiving is over and this project is just too easy. I’ve got a couple of Santa head molds and thought I would put them to use. I started out by pressing my Creative Paperclay® into the molds and once it dried popping it out.

I then painted the Santas…………………..

Cut out some snowflakes out of different papers on my Cricut machine, put them together and voila’, here you have some wonderful ornaments or tags. You can use these for so many different things.

See what I mean? So many different things that you could use these on. Easy peasy to make and they look really nice too, I think, what about you? You can purchase Creative Paperclay® at Michaels, Hobby Lobby, or directly from the company. Pick some up and try it out today while you’re working on those Christmas projects, you’ll be happy that you did.

Outline stickers and Sakura Crystal Lacquer and Terri Sproul Mixers


Awhile back the team members each received an envelope with outline stickers in it from our team leader, Terri Sproul. Now I wanted to make a card to send to a friend and was trying to get some things done before I had my back surgery so I choose some tulips and a butterfly to use on my card front. 2023-01-04 14.32.36Aren’t these outline stickers just awesome? You can use them as a stencil rather than an outline. I placed the outlines on my card front and mixed up some TS mixers with Sakura and filled in between the lines on the outline. I thought it turned out beautifully don’t you? A beautiful card for a friend.

Don’t you love this card front? I know I do and would love to receive it as well as give it.

Are you working on Christmas Decorations yet?


I would like to show you a project that I completed, using Creative Paperclay® and a few other things. I started out with this:

2003-01-10 13.38.38

I chose the birdhouse on the right to work with. I rolled out some paperclay into the form of a snake and cut equal portions of it. I then rolled the pieces into a ball, flattened them and applied them onto the roof of the birdhouse as shingles. I did use glue underneath to hold the shingles in place. I used another snake of clay to go around the bottom of the birdhouse to make it look like snow. I then painted the shingles with white paint and then with Extreme Glitter. I did the same with the clay on the bottom of the house. I then painted the main part of the house blue and the perch gold. I added some Petaloo flowers and some gifts and look how it turned out:

These pictures really don’t do justice to the roof. The shingles that were made out of Creative Paperclay just glittered. It looked like it should be in a Winter Wonderland. What do you folks think? I love to hear your comments and it would be so nice to hear from you.         2003-01-02 08.12.07 Ha, I found a pic before the extras were added. Don’t these shingles look neat?

A Cute Little Memo Board with Sakura Crystal Lacquer and some news.


I have a few wood pieces that I’ve never done anything with and thought now might be a good time to do so. As I said in my last post, I had back surgery which fused my L4 and L5 vertebrae together (or at least it will be when it heals). I’m very limited in what I can do right now. This though should let you know that you can make many things even though you might have limitations.

I started out with this:2003-01-04 17.50.37 Now to find out what else I did with it you need to go to the Sakura Hobby Craft blog and you’ll see!

For the readers and followers of my blog I would like to let you know that I have started an online store :!all-products/mainPage

I should have payment options up through PayPal by Monday the 12th. I still have some tweaking to do but you can go there now to see what I have for sale.
