A Bit About Paper Crafter’s Library
The world of paper crafting is HUGE! Whether you are a beginner, or you’ve been creating for years, the sheer number of different products, tools, techniques and project ideas can be overwhelming.After spending 6 years helping thousands of paper crafters around the world become more successful in the creative space through her series of kits, digital tutorials and online classes, Andrea Walford began looking for a new approach to education. In 2011 she launched Paper Crafter’s Library – the first, and still to this day, only website that provides an all-in-one learning solution for paper crafters. With almost 800 videos currently in their library and 4-5 new videos added each week, Paper Crafter’s Library offers comprehensive training on products, tools, techniques, and project ideas. From beginner through to advanced, whether your interest is in stamping, card making, scrapbooking, creating 3D items or altered art – you’ll find all the resources you need to navigate the world of paper crafting in ONE place, organized and indexed so that it’s quick and easy to find.










Here are a few Sneak peeks at today project posted over at Paper Crafter's Library.  It's all about recycling, altering and stamping on metal!  I've used Brocade Stanp Set 4, Suzy West Cotton Candy and Metallic Gold Rich Pale Embossing powders by Wow!  WOW! Embossing Powders will also be giving away a 12-pack of beautiful powders!

I just came over from PCL to check out your other projects since I was so inspired by your altered tin project there. Can't wait to take a look. Thanks for sharing your great ideas.

I am not above a little BEGGING, I really need to win the subscription to Paper Crafter's Library. I have waned to join forever but simply cannot afford it right now. I am just starting with mixed media and art journaling and I really need to be able to learn from them. Their videos are so well done and explain things so clearly and easily that they give you the confidence that you too can do it!

I LOVED your energy drink can project on the post today. I didn't even know you could emboss on metal, plus we have similar tastes, I love the shabby chic/vintage/thrift vibe, so this was right up my alley. I plan to subscribe to your blog becauseI can tell I will learn a lot and be inspired by your talent and creativity.

Sorry for the extremely long comment, I hope to hear from you soon.

Maureen

this is a wonderful prize as I love embossing but have been uable to find a good one in australia, love your newsletters but the cost is to high to join your community for a senior person, thanks for the opportunity to win these wonderful embossing and the three months membership, thanks again and keep up the good work

Debbie Gordon said...

I would have never thought to alter an energy drink can. Like you I have many through my house each week. Thank you for the chance to win a 3-month trial of PCL. I would love the chance to peruse everything they have to offer.

Kathie said...

I love altered art and your energy drink can idea is such an inspiration. I would never have imagined embossing on metal but you've shown that now only can it be done but something beautiful will result. I love your style, thanks for sharing!

SaraBug said...

The altered can looks great, love your style.

Isabel Z said...

Just saw your post over at Papercrafters Library and love what you created!

patti said...

I would have never guessed it was a drink can!!! What a great givaway ,embossing powder and 3 month membership ( where can you go wrong)

musesmom said...

Wow--you really know how to recycle!! Thanks for giving me a new way to look at common objects (a TP tube?!!) and making them things of beauty and wonder. Love your way with knobs, too! I'm already a Paper Crafters Library member, and enjoy being introduced to new products and artists through them.

Audrey Pettit said...

Very, very cool!

Ann said...

Hi Jen--Loved your energy drink altered can! Fun idea! I like the "green" aspect of altering everyday, throw-away items. Glad to have found you at the Paper Crafters blog! Thanks for the tutorial!

nzillingworth said...

Great projects didnt realize you could do so much with embossing powders but now i know be no stopping me hehe

cathy said...

I think it's amazing how different the energy drink can looks after you altered it.

Reva said...

idsportsmom said...

The thought that my son will be allowed to actually be able to have an energy drink and that I will buy it for him so that I can have the can to make this amazing project may cause quite a stir at my house. What a creative use of an item that many of us have around the house. I love the knob! WOW WOW WOW!!!

Jan Farring said...

Embossing has always been my favorite technique, but I always think - next project. Gonna have to try these for sure!! Wonderful projects - love the "recycling".

whitneymaryann said...

Amazing project. I would definitely have to drink the energy drink myself to get enough power to undertake what you produced. Your sister is one lucky recipient. Thanks for sharing your creativity using the WOW products.
