The Cutest Bookmark with Creative Paperclay®


I saw this bookmark somewhere on the internet but there wasn’t a tutorial so…… I decided it was just too cute not to try and make. I started out with these items:

2023-03-01 14.10.58 I was afraid that just one piece of cardstock wouldn’t be thick enough for the job so I used Collage Pauge and layered the cardstock. I also used the following:

2023-03-01 15.37.24 I also used more cardstock, more Collage Pauge, paint, glitter, wire and of course, wonderful Creative Paperclay®. I layered more cardstock and Collage Pauge, and used markers to decorate one set of bookmarks.

2023-03-02 19.23.52 I fashioned a set of legs and shoes from the wire and Creative Paperclay® and painted and glittered them after they had dried.            2023-03-02 19.23.20  I used E6000 to attach the legs to the bottom pieces of cardstock and then attached the bottom piece to the top using Collage Pauge once again. Didn’t this bookmark turn out great?

2023-03-02 19.36.09  Isn’t this just the cutest thing? I think I’m going to make several but I do believe I will seal the legs and bookmark. Please leave a comment because I love to hear from you.

Got Started Early On A Valentine and Sakura Hobby Craft


Sakura Hobby Craft has a lot of goodies besides just the Crystal Lacquer, Terri Sproul Mixers and jewelry findings. I was recently sent several wonderful metal boxes. I call them card boxes and we were told to decorate them in any way we wanted.

Here’s what I started with:

2023-02-23 19.45.28          2023-02-23 19.06.13 

Does this look like some fun stuff to play with or what? I covered the outside of the box with some very sparkly paper (I love my bling). I used Sakura Crystal Lacquer as glue for everything in this project. Once I had the cover on I added Valentine pictures and then some flowers. I cut paper for the inside and used the Lacquer to adhere it to the inside and then I cut paper to use for a card. I added stickers, hearts that I had punched out from foil, sparkly paper and plain paper. I added a lovely flower and voila’ I had a card to insert into the box.


2023-02-23 19.45.51     2023-02-23 19.52.27

2023-02-23 19.53.31

I spread Sakura Crystal Lacquer all over the front of the card and then sprinkled it with Terri Sproul Extra Fine glitter. I just love how my first Valentine turned out!!! I love to read your comments, please leave me some.

A Creative Paperclay ®Snowman that won’t Melt!


Well it’s that time of year when the snow can really pile up. We actually had snow on Christmas Day this past year. Here we are in a New Year and January is typically the month of the year for snow if you get snow. I started out this project with a gourd and a large coffee creamer jar. I forgot to take a picture of the original gourd and creamer jar so I took a picture of a similar one:

                                        2023-02-15 18.51.25 The jar that I used was clean!lol I took the lid off the clean and empty one that I used and glued the gourd to the top. Once the glue was dry I covered the piece with Creative Paperclay® and painted it first with white paint and then with glitter paint. I painted the nose orange.2023-02-16 19.24.36 Kind of looks like a snowman already doesn’t it? I added some button eyes, and a mouth, buttons and arms with a paint pen. I wrapped his neck with a fleece scarf and wrote a sentiment that I really like unto his tummy. Here’s the finished product:

2023-02-16 19.49.37          2023-02-16 19.50.14      2023-02-16 19.49.07

                                                   2023-02-16 19.50.27I think he’s just adorable don’t you? And you probably all know that I just love the bling that the glitter paint gives to it. You could use styrofoam balls in place of the gourd but isn’t that a great way to recycle that creamer jar!You could make a whole family of snowmen and women! I used approximately 1 lb. of the Creative Paperclay® on this project. Try it and I know you’ll like it!
