Far, Far away.. Ha Ha just kidding. It's Holly here and I'm your hostess this week at the Friday Mashup and I have a fun technique for us to try. Have you heard of or tried the Galaxy Technique? You create a fun Galaxy background using watercolors or inks. I have done it on my fingernails before but when I watched Kristina Werner do it I was so excited to try it. Below you will find 2 two links for tutorials on creating this fun background. My Mashup this week is create a card for a Friend.. So, let's get started!


Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a project with the "Galaxy Technique".   Links to technique HERE & HERE.

Cindy's Rock Star pick for FM181!


Oh my gosh... picking a winner this week was so difficult! You all blew me away with your creative takes on the MashUp. It took me forever to pick just ONE as a Rock Star - my mind kept going back to the adorable little ghost on Claire's wine tag.

Congrats on creating a tag that was a feast for the eyes, Claire!
I have no doubt my fellow DT members will pick all my runners up!
 Thanks so much for playing along this week, friends. ~ Cindy

FM181... Tag it!!


Hey gang! It's Cindy, and I think it's time to start thinking of holiday gift giving- a hostess gift for Thanksgiving, co-worker treats, and just plain general Christmas gift tagging. Let's all share our ideas with a challenge this week of creating a TAG for a bottle, box, or bag. You can Mash It Up by adding some bling. Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with that can inspire me with my gift tagging this year! 




Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a "Tag for a Bottle, Box or Bag". 
  • Create a project with "Bling". 
  • or Mash it Up! and create a "Tag with Bling".
