Who is Team Creative Crafts?
There are three of us who work together to bring this crafty fun to you! — me, Ann and Beth. We are crafty besties and work together is lots of ways. Ann blogs over at Bella Crafts Publishing and shares so many fantastic ideas and techniques. I love Ann because she is always smiling, almost always in the middle of creating something and is truly the kind of friend and friend would want to have. Beth blogs over at Creatively Beth. She is over-the-top creative and my bestest travel buddy. We would LOVE it if you would join all of us on our creative adventures!

We have the best sponsors. I LOVE all of these products so much and can’t wait to share ways to use them in crafting and DIYs with you during the Team Creative Crafts Craft-A-Thon. Let’s take a quick look at each of these wonderful companies.
I have been working with DecoArt paints and products for pretty much forever. We will be sharing their new paint sets for Michaels to create finishes on different surfaces. Until then, here is a link to one of my favorite DecoArt projects because painting kindness rocks is always a great idea.
Beth loves DecoArt as much as me. She made something pretty amazing. Can you guess what it is from this photo? Go find out.
There is some super exciting news about Therm-O-Web. I have a WHOLE NEW CRAFT LINE launching with them and can barely contain my excitement. There will be foils, stamps, papers, cards/envelopes, tags and more. Until then, here is a favorite project using some of their products for to check out.
Beth made these darling tags at a workshop with Therm-O-Web in Chicago!
Ann is pretty much an expert when it comes to using Therm-O-Web foils. She has a great post sharing more on the Bella Crafts blog.
The best hemp cord comes from Hemptique. We have the funnest project planned for you during the Team Creative Crafts Craft-A-Thon — string art! Here is a link to a string art project that is super cute already on the blog.
If you have been around long (or even for a short time) then you know that I am pretty crazy about felt. We will be sharing this adorable felt/fabric garland during the Craft-A-Thon. If you want to buy the felt/fabric/twine ahead of time — you can grab the kit in my online shop.
So many of the wonderful things that I make and share have a product from Fairfield World included. They are the makers of Poly-Fil stuffing, Poly-Pellets, oly*fun and tons of other fillings and battings. We will be showing you several ways to use their products including filling a bean bag chair and making monsters. Grab the monster pattern here on the blog.
Ann made the most amazing puff rag quilt using Fairfield World’s Poly-Fil. Check out her post with all of the details and get inspired to start sewing one of your own.
Beth made a storage stool from a wine crate with Fairfield World foam. Check it out!
Polymer Clay is such a fun medium because it allows the makers to create such a huge variety of projects. During the Team Creative Crafts Craft-A-Thon we will be teaching you how to use the Liquid Sculpey. I. This post has the free printable for making the kindness flowers too. Until then, here is one of my favorite projects. love the Bake Shop clay because it is super easy to work with
We can’t wait to show you how to make your own stickers with the Creative Station AND share the new glue guns from Xyron during the Team Creative Crafts Craft-A-Thon. Until then, here is a link to one of my favorite Xyron Creative Station sticker projects.
Beth used Xyron’s Sticker Maker to create something fun. Look at these awesome supplies. Check out her custom doodle stickers!
Everyone LOVES E6000 glue, right?! We are going to make this super fun bulletin board with E-6000 AND share TONS of their awesome products with you during the Craft-A-Thon. You don’t want to miss this! We will even be giving away a HUGE box of Eclectic goodness so definitely stay tuned. We used the E6000 Fabri-Fuse to attach the felt musical notes to Jordan’s senior overalls and let me tell you – it’s amazing to work with!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE ooly products. While they are packaged and seem to be geared for kids, I find them to work great in so many of my favorite projects. The Chunkies Paint Sticks make the best posters with the greatest ease. Check them out here on the blog.
There are so many fabulous fiber arts projects to be made using the wonderful variety of yarns from Darn Good Yarn. We will be using the Wild Peacock Recycled Silk Yarn Worsted Weight to teach you how to make adorable tassels.
