Happy Cupcake: A Closer Look at Light source and Shading

Written by Marie Gamber. Posted in Tips & Tricks, Tutorials


Hello and WELCOME!
It’s Friday!  Yea!   I hope everyone has a great weekend planned!

Today I am doing a video featuring light source, shadows  and shading.   This is a special request from my friend Kristine!
I have used the light source guides before but I wanted to explain how I use the linear guide in a little more detail.
I will share some of the other guides later!
But for now – let’s get started with  Shadows & Shading with the linear guide !
Here’s to you, Kristine!   :D

May Showers

Written by Monica Edwards. Posted in 3D, Anything But a Card

Hi crafters!  Monica here with a easy calendar and a great rainy day crafts with the kiddos!  I found a piece of decor wood at home for a mere $1.97 I covered it with some patterned paper and adhered a calendar I had to the front of it with a brad!



I used a newer release from LaLa Land called Marci – Spring Showers to the calendar and it was perfect May .  I stamped her on some X-Press IT paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.



  • Hair: E21, E23, E25, E27, E29
  • Face: E000, E00, E04, E11
