Gettin “squishy” with it!

Happy Monday everyone! What does hair gel have to do with scrapbooking? It’s an odd question huh? Check out these projects and you will see:


The jam jars on the card and scrapbook page are made with hair gel! Do you want to find out how? Check out the video:

How do you like the new camera angle? I finally figured out how to film right-side-up…It only took 93 videos LOL!


I know many of you are horrified at the thought of a bag of hair gel living in your scrapbook page, if that will keep you up at night just make the card instead 🙂 I am not too worried about it because if something did leak it will be in a page protector all by itself so it could only sully its own page. Besides, I can always print more photos.


How can you resist the squishable goodness?


Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

How’s Everything in Your Bowl?

It’s not just for hair styling anymore…Hair gel was used to make the water in this card and my homemade dew drops are the bubbles. This is a cute, fun, quick card you can send to anyone you want to catch up with. The fishbowl card is from Creative Cuts and More.

Die Cut Card: Accucut/

How to make it: Put a tablespoon of hair gel (clear, I get it at the dollar store) in a Ziploc baggie. Add a drop of blue re-inker or watercolor and beads, glitter, dew drops or whatever. Remember a little goes a long way! For extra protection fold the zippered end over and secure it with tape. Trim a piece of cardstock 1/8 inch smaller than the card front and stamp your scene and attach it to the inside of the card, tape it to the baggie. Then I stamped “How’s everything in your bowl?” on the inside of the card.

Stamp Credits: Fish: Stampin up, Crab: Rubber Soul, Plant: Heidi Grace, Sentiment: Studio G * on the fish and sentiment I used a black marker to ink only the portain of the stamp I wanted.

This was so fun to make, I hope you try a hair gel card! For more inspiration check out this tutorial (It’s where I learned this technique!) Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!

PS. I also want to thak Kim Ross for designing the fantastic watermark I used on the photo, you rock Kim!
