  1. Oh, oh my goodness!! I LOVE your project! That die set is adorable, but I haven’t found a way (yet!) to justify buying it. So much fun to watch you work with it. Thank you so so much for this video. I’ve been curious to see how you would use resin and moulds and look forward to hearing you share your pros and cons as well as watching you try other products with the moulds. I once tried using glue in a mould, but it didn’t work that well for me so I look forward to seeing how you do it and the results you get. The border mould you worked with in this video is in my stash and I’ve used it with clay. It’s a fun and versatile mould, but I’ve struggled to miter cut the pieces. It actually looks like resin might be easier. I have much to learn when working with moulds and I can’t tell you how happy I feel to be watching you work with them. The flash cards you used, what you did with them and creating a pocket to put them in was a very clever idea! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate this video, Vicky. Thank you again.

  2. This video was amazing, even more so because you know what you want to use and you place them down as your going along and it makes such a pretty interesting shadow box. This would also make such a cute card. Looking forward to your mold videos too. You are such a wonderful instructor Vicky, thank you!

    I just loved this mixed media project. I actually never do this kind of artwork, however am really loving your mixed media Tuesdays. Wonderfully creative,& incredibly informative on many products that up to now are unknown to me. Very educational !! I still love your card making but see how incredibly creative you are in the mixed media field! Bravo…you are my favorite card maker/ mixed media artist, am so thrilled that you here in Greece!!

  4. Hi Vicky,
    I love this mixed media project. I have to have my coffee too before doing anything else and these days I have my first cup on my patio since the days are getting warmer and I sit in the sun.
    I will definitely make this. I don’t have the same die set but I do have an old bigz die from Tim Holtz with coffee cups and I have the coffee stampset. I also have the same patern paper and flash cards. So I have to get me a shadow box and I am good to go
    Wonderful decor piece that I plan on hanging in my kitchen by my coffee maker!
    Thank you for the inspiration.❤️

  5. I love this home decor project!! You have totally inspired me to start mixed media projects. I have totally fell in love with Studio Light Art by Marlene, that you introduced to us. I think I purchased all her products. (As much as I could afford all at once LOL). Love these products. Thank you for inspiring me. I needed a kick in the pants to jump into mixed media, but my heart is into it. I will send you photos when I’m done. I’m trying to do what you tell us, not to fret over the pages so much. I definitely do that! I do enjoy your videos for cards……however you have me hooked on mixed media and home decor. I know I need to share your types of videos with your other followers. Have an awesome day!!

  6. W OW! Fantastic video. Love your Shadow box. You are amazing. Love all your videos. I learn so much from you. Thank you for showing how to make the border .your tips are great. Thank you.

  7. Exquisite……….I am truly amazed with all your work. Thanks for sharing the process with us. Love these videos!

  8. Great video for a fun project. My favorite are the pull-out words in the “pocket” you created.

  9. Hi, I’m from a little town in North Central Florida. Lake Butler, Florida. This has got to be the biggest HOP I have ever dreamed of. This is totally Amazing. Linda
    I haven’t done much with mixed media. But after watching your video, I think I have a new hobby in the making. Thanks

  10. Absolute fabulous Vicky! I love this piece.
    I love always to see how you put your mixed media projects together, so awesome.
    Step by step it becomes a beautiful piece of art.
    Thank you so much for sharing your inspiration, stay safe and have a wonderful week.
