The Sunday Snapshot - Feb. 7, 2016

Posted by Katy Weade

Happy Sunday, friends! Sorry I am posting a bit late tonight. The day ended up busier than anticipated! I'm here now, though, with my weekly recap. I was out sick with the flu on Monday so the rest of the week seemed to fly by. We jammed a whole bunch into the week regardless! Here's what you may have missed...

-We hit 16k on Instagram!
-We had a special guest on Live with Blitsy! Natalie Wright from the Blitsy Creative Team (and the mastermind behind the WRMK Ruler Studio!) joined us.

Perhaps the biggest news of the week was the announcement of the 2016 Blitsy Creative Team! I could not be more excited about the team we've put into place. It is always so tough to narrow it down, but I think we landed on an amazing group of talent. You may recognize some familiar faces who stayed on the team. but you'll also see a lot of NEW faces who I know you will love. If you missed that announcement check out the full post here. Make sure you stop by their blogs, too, and let them know you found them through Blitsy!

Top Videos this Week

Superbowl was on our mind's again this week. Here are some more great ideas for The Big Game (although, the game is happening now, but you can use the ideas for other parties as well!)

We're also still posting inspiration for Valentines Day crafts! It's less than a week away now! You're sure to find some inspiration from the Blitsy team.

We R Memory Keepers always has the most innovative tools and products for crafting. For one more day their new Ruler Studio Collection. Fun fact: the whole idea for this came from our very own Creative Team member, Natalie Wright! She happened to be in some an old antique store and saw some old folding rulers laying around. She brought them up to the counter to buy, but the man who worked there said they were his actual tools and not for sale. Her wheels were spinning how she could use those rulers for home decor. Alas, the idea was born! She brought that idea to WRMK and now we have them at Blitsy! Here are a couple of videos so you can see what they are all about.

Top Blog Posts this Week

Natalie also shared a great Blog post with the Ruler Studio. You can view the full post here.


Dana Joy (new to the Creative Team for 2016!) shared a SUPER cute Valentines Day Card for him on the Blog. This could also be used for an anniversary or just because!

Who loves seeing what Carisa comes up with on the Blog each week? Mixed Media fans take note! She uses the Gelli Plates, Black Dylusions Art Journal, and Dylusions Paints. Check out that post right here. There's also a video!

Kim Dellow shared how to make quick and easy gift tags. These ALWAYS come in handy!

Ok, and the last one I'm going to share is from Blitsy Creative Team Member Adrianne Surian. She always has the best jewelry DIYs! I think this one would be perfect for Mother's Day, which is just around the corner. Adrianne shows you how easy it is to make a DIY Photo Charm Necklace. I seriously want to do this!
