Tools are what we use to create. They include the ink, paper, embossing powder and glitter, paint, brayer, stamps, stamping tools, gelli plate, and markers. You get the idea. The more you know about a tool, the easier it is to create and play with it.


Techniques are where playing and learning come together. Here you will find ideas on how to creatively use your tools. Watching what someone else does with a tool helps spark the “What if I….?” inside of you. Those are the best “playing” words!


Projects bring tools and techniques together. Projects are the finished product of an idea, a technique or two, and knowledgeable tool usage.


What do I think about inks, stamps, stamping tools, pastes, paints, papers, and companies? Well, let me tell you! Be sure to leave your own thoughts in the comments! I love to hear about your experiences and opinions!

Hi! Nice to meet you!

My name is Dixie Cravens. I am LDS and a wife, homeschooling mom (of 5!), on-line student, daughter, sister, and friend. That’s a lot of roles! I am also a crafter. That’s sort of an understatement.

This new blog is a project that I am working on for a business class. My hope is that this is just the beginning of a wonderful journey.
