Super Share (June Edition)



I wanted to start a monthly place for my readers (as well as my watchers) to be able to interact with me a little more. If you are familiar with the YouTube scene you know that there are a ton of monthly favorite videos. Some people call them monthly favorites, miscellanious monthlies, montly empties, you name it. I really liked the concept and I wanted to put my own little spin on it.
Each month I will be sharing my top picks, but they will be catagorized (ex. tools, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.) This is something new that I’m trying out, so I’m sure there will be more things to come in the next coming months.

Crafty Finds 

I think we all know how addicting washi tape can be. When I first heard of washi tape it wasn’t so easy to come by. If you wanted it, you had to either get it on ebay or etsy. I had gotten a few rolls from my Studio Calico monthly kits and that’s where my love for washi tape started. Once Michaels started carrying their own version of washi tape my collection started to grow. Compared to others, my collection is still very small, but it’s getting there. These are just a few of my favorite rolls.





Everyone needs a good glue gun. I have a couple small glue guns that worked really well for me in the past. There was nothing wrong with them, but I was tired of being tied down by a cord. The cords would get wrapped up and hard to deal with when it gets all those kinks in it (you know what I’m talking about). I had seen this glue gun at Michaels and always passed on purchasing it. One day I finally caved and I’m so glad that I did. It is cordless, has a stand, lights up your project when you are using it, and it’s pink! How much better can a glue gun get?

A product that is probably on the top of my list is a stamp set by Lawn Fawn called Quinn’s ABCs. I love the chunky font and the fact that you are able to color the letters in and customize them to fit your taste. The best part is now there is a die set to go with these letters. Not only can you stamp, but you can also die cut each individual letter. I have used this set countless times and every time I use it, I fall in love with it more and more.

This product is a little bit of a stretch for a crafty favorite, but I use it every day to organize my crafts. You may be wondering why I need a specific organizer to organize my crafts. Well have you ever had a great idea for a project, but are in the middle of a current one so you just put it off until later? Most of the time, that later never comes because I have forgotten what it is that I wanted to do. This organizer has remedied that and now I am able to put all of my ideas in one place, plan out video tutorials and blog posts. So in a way, this is my crafty best friend.

 

If you have been keeping up with the Filofax trend, you know that pens are all the rage. If you have a love for office supplies, like I do, you will love experimenting with new pens. I have quite a collection  so far and I only see it growing from there. I picked up a little tip from the beauty gurus on Youtube and that is using an acrylic container (or any other container) and filling it with florist beads. It allows your pens to stand up straight, stay in order, and it’s a great way to keep them at your fingertips and not lost in a pouch. As you can see, I am desperately in need of a bigger container.

Pinterest Pick
 
Everyone loves Pinterest and it’s so easy to get inspired by all the amazing and talented people out there. One thing that I would like to start trying out this summer is experimenting with mixed media. I see all of these wonderful mixed media projects and it gets me excited to start making my own. This month’s Pinterest pick is a mixed media canvas using Heidi Swapp products.
 


 
Instagram Love
 
Lastly, I want to share with you my favorite Instagram picture of the month. Collen sent me this beautiful owl canvas that matches my craft room. It’s the nicest thing anyone has ever made for me and the details she added are outstanding. She took a picture of it on Instagram and I fell in love with it. I had no clue it was for me when I saw it. So when I opened the mail a couple days later, I was so excited!!! Make sure to check out Collen’s YouTube and blog!!

I hope you enjoyed my first Super Share. I plan on doing these monthly as a way to share with you my favorites of the month. If you would like to create your own super share, add you link below. You can either make a video or link your blog post. I would love to see what you have. If you do decide to participate, please leave a link to this blog post either in your YouTube description or on your blog post itself. That way even more people can share and we can learn new things from each other. Feel free to share as little or as much as you’d like. You may even post this link if it makes it easier.

My New Obsession… Filofax!!

It’s been a while since I have posted a blog post here on Jennuine Crafts. With Krafty Girls returning in just a week, I think it’s about time that I start blogging again. Over the last couple of weeks I have discovered the Filofaxing community. Who knew that there was a community of crafters that love to stay organized. Filofaxing is where organizing and crafting meet and come together as one. Of course I had to jump on the bandwagon and I couldn’t have gotten on fasterl I already have one Filofax and two more coming in the mail. I’m sure I’ll have many, MANY more in my life time.

Here is the Filofax that I currently have.

It’s the personal sized Saffiano in bright purple.
 
I plan on using this Filofax as my crafting organizer. With all of the posts and videos ideas I have, I needed a place to keep them all organized. I was afraid that I wasn’t going to be able to fill this beauty up, but she is the perfect size.
 
Then to go with my Filofaxes, I had to get supplies…
 
 
 
With Filofaxing, it’s a whole new kind of crafting. I’ve never been into stickers before and I always stay away from that aisle in Michaels. Now that I have a Filofax though, I find myself drawn to cute stickers, stationery, and office supplies. I’m also quite obsessed with different types of pens, markers, and pencils. my current favorite are the erasable Frixion pens from Pilot. They are AMAZING!!!
 
 
I think my favorite Filofax accessory has to be my washi tape. I love how it can add so much decoration to a page, but not add all the bulk to it. This is just my small washi tape collection and I’m sure I will grow out of it very quickly, very soon.
