3D Sakura Crystal Color Lacquer and Sakura Jewelry Finding


This project started out like this:2023-02-08 17.07.48

I started out with 3D Sakura Crystal Lacquer in the Primary colors and also in the Pastel Colors. I also used a Jewelry Finding by Sakura Hobby Craft. I picked some colors and carefully put them into the Finding.2023-02-08 17.49.57I then used a tool and drew it carefully through the lacquer to make a design.

2023-02-08 17.51.18For a final touch I sprinkled some Terri Sproul extra fine glass glitter on the top of it. (I call it pixie dust)

2023-02-08 17.56.16        2023-02-08 17.56.56 It’s hard to tell from the pictures but the Pixie dust really looks pretty. I love how it turned out and it will make a very pretty necklace don’t you think?

An Organizer I Made With Duck Tape


I don’t have any big tutorial to show you today but I think you can figure this out for yourself. I recently made myself an organizer with a shoebox, toilet paper rolls and duck tape.

2023-02-02 14.51.59         2023-02-02 14.52.13

I’ve come to find out though that I have more markers etc. than I have spaces to put them, so as soon as some more toilet paper rolls get saved I’ll fill this box with them. As you can see I chose tape that had paint splatters all over it.

I also made one for a very dear friend of mine. Her favorite color is orange, so I chose a tie dye orange/yellow color. I didn’t have enough toilet paper rolls to complete hers, so I made some squares out of cardboard and used what rolls I had. She now has a place for markers, pens, paper etc.

I plan on putting some goodies in this and giving it to her for Christmas. What do you think? Good gift?

A Really Good Looking Angel Tag!


Which was made with SinCityScraps, Sakura Crystal Lacquer and Terri Sproul Mixers! Recently we each got to pick some stamps from SinCityScraps and were to use them this month on the Sakura Blog. I hadn’t used SinCityStamps before but I’ve got to say that after giving them a try, I think I’m in love!They have amazing detail which I’m sure the pictures won’t do justice. I’ve been a little down physically this week because I overdid it during my water physical therapy (for my back) so my project is a little one but pretty sweet if I do say so myself. I pulled out several things to use: tags, inks, embossing powders, some angel wings from my stash, translucent paper, Sakura Crystal Lacquer, Terri Sproul Mixers and Glass Glitz and a wonderful SinCityScraps stamp!

I painted the tag with Sakura Crystal Lacquer mixed with Terri Sproul mixer Gold2023-01-25 18.12.39and while this was drying I used my SinCityScraps stamp to stamp the image on the translucent paper with ink, sprinkle the embossing powder on it and then set it with a heat gun.  2023-01-25 18.02.14 I applied the Gold Lacquer to the angel wings and sprinkled the Glass Glitz Christmas Mix and then adhered it to the tag with the Lacquer and also the stamp. I tied a ribbon through the hole at the top and lookie what I made!2023-01-25 18.36.06 I really loved how this turned out. I would love to hear what you think about it. Isn’t this stamp really super?
