VIDEO | 5 Tips For Getting Your Mojo Back + Celebrating 10K with Jessica Frost-Ballas Video Hop

Hello there, I am delighted to be joining Jessica Frost-Ballas today to celebrate her reaching 10K subscribers on YouTube. We are celebrating with a fun video hop. The fun starts over there but I still wanted to share here over on my blog too. 

Our brief for the hop was to simply use products that we love and so that's what I did for my projects! I thought I would also talk about some tips for getting your mojo back if you have lost it. To be honest, I do lose my mojo quite a lot and these are tips that have helped me in the past, so I wanted to share them with you too, in case you ever feel the same! 


  1. Try a new colour combination. 
  2. Organise your supplies/create swatches.
  3. Use techniques and products that you love.
  4. Try a size different than you are used to/will be less intimated by e.g. tags, mini slimline, ATC, gift box, art journal page, bookmark. 
  5. Be inspired by others. 

I wanted to create some tags today, since that is what I love making. I started off by die cutting the Reverse Confetti Grid Stitched Tag Die four times from Bristol Smooth Cardstock (two for each tag - front and back). I wanted to do some ink blending on the tags but I wanted to try a new colour combination (the first tip on my list) so I found a colour combination by our host Jessica of Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide Inks. 

On one tag, I blended the colours as a solid layer and on the other, I created clouds using the MFT Cloud Stencil. I used the new mini domed ink blending foams from Ranger. It was my first time using them and I think that I will use them from now on for my Oxides. I then splattered some Tseukineko Sheer Shimmer Spritz on top of the tags and left them to dry. 

Whilst they were drying, I stamped two of the butterflies from the Reverse Confetti Stained Glass Butterflies Stamp Set on to Hero Arts Classic Vellum Layering Paper with Versaamrk Ink. I applied Hero Arts White Satin Pearl Embossing Powder and heat set. They were then die cut out using the Reverse Confetti Stained Glass Butterflies Confetti Cuts

I took the sentiment from the Reverse Confetti Word Up Stamp Set and stamped it twice on to Hero Arts Pitch Black Cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied Hero Arts White Detail Embossing Powder, heat set and cut in to strips. I adhered the tags back to back (the clean one on the back so that it looks nice if I will give these as tags) and then added the topper to the top of the tag (cut from black cardstock) and cut the top off. 

The butterflies were adhered on top the tags with small dabs of Multi Medium Matte adhesive, making sure to keep the adhesive behind the embossing only so that it would not be visible from the front. The sentiment strips were added with foam tape. To finish off, I added twine through the top of the tags and embellished with Lucy's Bubbles


Here is the video showing how I made the tags:

I do love creating tags! I will probably add these to the front of card bases but it is nice to have options if I wanted to send them as tags or add to a gift.

I will also have the details in the description bar on my video on YouTube. Thank you so much for stopping by today, I really do appreciate it. I hope you have a lovely rest of the day!
