Hello my name is Tyra and I write content for, a site for crafty reviews and, where I share my crafty journey.   My style is clean, simple and fun!   My current focus is paper crafting, although I love trying anything handmade!  I am a married mom of three littles who are all in elementary school.    I am a fan of pro and college football, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and my Macbook.  My favorite colors are always changing and I guess that’s a good thing! Nice to meet you! 


Hi my name is Yolie, AKA Yolie, {JustYolie}. I live Southern California with my supportive husband, Michael, a true blessing in my life. I have been scrapbooking for almost 12 years and card making for about six years. I started my blog almost 7 years ago and that opened up a completely new crafting world for me. My style is more traditional however, I am have been dabbling in mixed media with the help of the eBrush. I am super excited to be designing with the eBrush by Craftwell, I also currently design for Latina Crafter, Pink and Main and DCWV.

Design Team Cycle !2

 Welcome Back Girls!

We are welcoming back more familiar faces, and we are so excited to do so! 

Read more about our Thursday Designers!

My name is Alexia and I live on Long Island, NY. I’m married to my soul mate and together we have two kiddos, 3 and 5 years old. I have been crafting for about five years now and I enjoy every second of it. I usually craft at night because I love the quietness and peacefulness, that’s also because it’s the only time I can think straight - lol. Besides playing with paper and glue, preparing foods for my family is another big part of my daily routine which I enjoy doing. I love my life!


I am  35 years old and have been married to my best friend for the last 9 years. I am a SAHM of 4 beautiful & energetic children, 2 girls & 2 boys (ages 7, 5, 3, & 1). We have one fur baby and a pet turtle that completes our family. We live in Brenham, Texas... birthplace of Texas and home of Bluebell ice cream. It's a small town located between Austin and Houston. Brenham may be a small town but, with 4 little ones running around, it's NEVER boring! We are one chaotic but happy family.

I have many "loves". I love card making, scrapbooking, gift giving, & party planning. I love doing anything and everything artsy or crafty! I just love to be creative! I love to laugh & make others laugh and it makes my heart happy to bring a smile to someone's face. I love to live in the moment and capture the NOW with tons of pictures to prove it! I absolutely love teaching others different crafting techniques... it's magical when you see something come together right before your eyes! I wanna share that magic with everyone and being on the Craftwell eBrush team will help me do that!

I am also a mom of 4 and grandma to 9 very amazing grandchildren if I must say so myself. I love to scrapbook.... paper crafting, alter projects and make cards.

Always Remember - Journal Clipboard

eBrush Design Team: Yolie Burke Week 12 Cycle 2

Happy Friday, this is Yolie from the Team eBrush with today's project.

This month we are featuring Teresa Collins Wanderlust Collection.  I absolutely in love with all the gold!!  Today I'm sharing journal clipboard.

In addition to the Wanderlust Collection, I used Teresa Collins' stencils, tags, library pocket, glassine bag and her retired stamp set Everyday Moments; a black and gold Sharpie; the eBrush.

I first took the manila tag and used the black Sharpie to eBrush the edge.

Next, I used the hearts stencil and the gold Sharpie on the glassine bag.

Lastly, I used the damask stencil and eBrushed the library pocket with the gold Sharpie.

I used different pattern papers, stickers and die cuts from the Wanderlust collection.  The tab "today" and the word "always" were stamped with the Everyday Moments stamp set.  Additionally, I embellished with gold jewelry string on the back of the library pocket.

Here's a closer look.  The clipboard was a dollar find at Target and I just love how my Gold journal clipboard turned out.

The glassine bag holds journal cards, with the help of the "today" tab, I can easily open the bag to store them.

Here is a closer look at the hand stamped journal cards.  Again, I used the Everyday Moments stamp set.

Thank you for stopping by today and enjoy your weekend.

Remember this!

eBrush Design Team: Mitsyana Wright Week 12 Cycle 2

Hey Crafty Friends... It's my turn up for Team eBrush. These next two weeks we will be featuring awesome papers from Teresa Collins!! Yay!!

These papers are so super fab that they make your projects shine... literally!! I'm digging all the gold foil throughout her lines. And as a bonus many of her lines coordinate very well with each other!

Supplies Used
Teresa Collins Pocket Dies- Butterfly, Phrases, Honeycomb (Memory Collection), Flowers and leaf (Girls Best Friend & Thankful sets)- Craftwell
Teresa Collins papers- (Project Pink- CardsLatticeGold), (Collectors Edition- GildedGeometric)
Stemmed leaf  (Small Ivy die - Die-Namites)
Sharpie Markers (Green, lime green, orange, brown)
Spectrum Noir Markers (IB2, CR2, CR5)
Gesso (Liquitex)
Modeling paste
Stencil (DCWV)
Polka Dots background stamp (Hero Arts)
Hot Glue gun and sticks
Assorted paper flowers (Prima Marketing)
Assorted ribbon & Tulle (Offray)
Assorted Buttons (Buttons Galore)
Diamond Glaze (Judikins)
2Way Glue Pen (EK Success)
Cutter Bee Scissors (EK Success)
Corner punch (EK Success)

I started by cutting out several the little golden square out of my Teresa Collins Lattice paper. I loved the look to this foil... it's has a nice shine without being overpowering.

Then I slid them into my Xyron "X" to turn them into instant stickers.

Then I just peeled them and arranged them randomly onto my sheet of Teresa Collins Gilded paper.

 I used my die cut machine and cut out 1 large leaf, 2 stemmed leaves,  2 honeycombs, and 1 of each phrase.

I ebrushed all my die cut pieces and paper flowers.

I cut out this awesome honeycomb panel from my Teresa Collins Cards sheet. Then rounded the corners.

I used my glue pan to adhere my different phrases onto a sheet of  Teresa Collins Gold paper... it has a lovely water brushed look on the backside of the gold!

Next I ran all my ribbon, die cuts, panel, and picture through my Xyron Creative Station!! Extra large platform is great for not just the BIG jobs but the many Small ones as well... so much better than having do them one at a time!!

Then I gessoed this adorable wood veneer bird cage I found at Michael's. Then I ebrushed it in Spectrum Noir IB2.

I also used more gesso to add details onto my butterfly wings.While that was drying...

I arranged and attached all my newly adhesive'd pieces. I hot glued buttons onto my flowers and used Diamond Glaze to attach them to my layout. And I made sure to use my glue pen to do the delicate honeycombs.

I cut out some Teresa collins Gilded paper to make my white and gold foiled roses. I used the flower die from the Teresa Collins Memory Collection for the flower and cut a total of 8 of the small flowers (4 for each rose). 

I love mixed media but hate the time it takes for most pastes and paints to dry. With the ebrush I can do mixed media with little to NO drying time!! The bird cage was ebrushed with my Spectrum Noir IB2 marker and dried INSTANTLY! I even ebrushed after I had attached all my elements onto my layout... around my main focal area  and pretty much everywhere I had a bit of honeycomb.

And here is my finished layout. 
Now I have a dainty page to match my precious baby girl (Who's not a little baby anymore)! 

Hope you liked my project for today!!

Until next time...
~ Mitsy

eBrush and Teresa Collins - A Great Team!

      eBrush Design Team: Jan Hunter Week 12 Cycle 2

It's been a summer of traveling for me and when I saw these incredible papers by Teresa Collins, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to create this fun little case.  The file is from SVGCuts (Summer Holiday SVG Kit).

Cut all the pieces in the Train Case file using an electronic cutting machine and eBrush edges as desired.  You can find all the details on putting the case together in the SVGGCuts video here.  The file doesn't take long to put together once you've picked your papers - and if you're like me, that often takes more time than putting a project together!

If you want to add any additional ebrushing, you can do so now.  I decided I wanted a little more color on the edges and I add the trim to the bottom of the case.  I also added a bit more "color" to the lid.  I love to play with the ebrush.  I used Sharpies for this project, btw.

When I went to my stash of brads, I was sad to discover that I didn't have any bright or brushed gold ones the right size for this project... but hey, with the eBrush and a sharpie, you're good to go!  Her are the before and after pictures.

Now, complete the project with a few embellishments.  I added some chip pieces and a couple of tags.  You can certainly add a little more bling if desired.  The gold in the TC papers make the case look like it's metal -- not paper!  A couple of friends who saw this the other day were thinking I'd done some shopping and found a metal box -- nope!  Paper-crafting!

Thanks for dropping by the Craftwell blog today!  Hope you'll stay connected this week and next for more fun ideas using the eBrush and some fantastic Teresa Collins papers and goodies!  And don't forget to set up some creative time of your own!

You can see more of what's been happening on my blog, here.
