Where Creativity is Just Plain Fun

Membership is Free!

I have decided to end the Paid Memberships Program and just go with the Points Program. If you are a paid member, you signed up for a lifetime membership and are no longer paying for memberships. I am not really making any money from new memberships so it does not make sense to keep that part of my business going. Instead, membership is going to be point based. I do not plan to change this again. My income will be from sales of Paper Bead Rollers, downloads for people who don't want to be a member, books I publish in the future on Amazon, templates and template bundles, ads on the site and YouTube revenue.

All downloads, that cost points, no matter what level you are at, will now cost 20,000 points each unless otherwise noted on the individual pages.

It's Julie's Birthday Today!

I know I haven't really added anything new for quite a while. I have been busy making paper bead roller inventory and taking care of quilting fabric, I recently bought from a dear friend's family, that she left behind, after she passed away a couple of years ago. So far I have documented and folded over 1100 yards. Yes, over one thousand! I am planning to add a quilting section to the site. Not sure if any of you know this, but I have known how to make quilts since the late 1970's. I just haven't done it since 1997 until 2018.

Laminated Cutting Guides! Learn about the brand new paper bead templates! These templates are designed for use with Guillotine cutters! They are laminated so they will last a very long time and you tape them down to the bed of the cutter and you lay your paper on top of them and move the paper down the template as you cut each strip.

Tuesday's Tip

Plastic Templates for Small Sewing Projects

If you have a thermal laminator, you can use it to laminate a template made with cardstock, then cut the template out. You can use this template over and over as many times as you want! I have used this technique form making Christmas ornaments with shapes from cookie cutters as well as cute fabric magnets for the fridge.
