Embossing Vintaj metal with a Cuttlebug

Did you know you can emboss metal with a Cuttlebug Die-Cutting and Embossing Machine?  It works great with the really thin metal, but also slightly thicker types like the ones from Vintaj.

Erin Bassett - Cuttlebug EarringsI made these earrings by running the Vintaj metal circles through my Cuttlebug and then dressing them up with some beautiful green beads.  I love green!!

If you'd like the instructions on how to make these earrings, stop by the Mixology Crafts blog today to download my free tutorial sheet...or just pop on over there & tell me you like them.  :)

Happy Tuesday!


Scrapbook Layout: Every Day & Tattered Angels Video Tutorial

Erin Bassett - Tattered Angles - Crepe Paper Flower Scrapbook Layout Here's a scrapbook page I made that features some cute flowers I made with the new Tattered Angels Crepe Ribbons, and my Imaginisce I-Top Tool.  If you'd like to learn how to make these flowers hop on over to the Tattered Angels Educator's blog or my classes at to see my video tutorial on how to do it.

I also use one of the new frame Glimmer Screens, Tattered Textures Clear Stamps, and some Glimmer Glam to make the page. It's so fun to play with new product!!

Mother's Day Gift

Wow, I feel like I've been so busy lately!  I have barely had time to be online at all...which isn't necessarily a bad thing except I miss keeping up with everyone.

Erin Bassett - Cricut Viny Glass Etching Since today's Tuesday, here's the link to my Mixology Crafts's a great idea for an easy, quick, & fairly cheap gift!  Don't forget to download the tutorial.  :)

Another great gift idea is this memo board on When Creativity Knocks...I made a similar one for my Mom awhile ago.


Oh, and a reminder to stop by the Imaginisce blog...the new paper crafting line called To Love & Cherish is out and the design team projects are being unveiled this week. The design team really out did themselves with the cute projects this time!

And lastly, swing by the Tattered Angles Educator's blog and check out some of the great projects and techniques!

Oh, and happy Tuesday!!
