New Years Eve Streamathon Project

Thought I would post a list of supplies if you wish to work along with me during my stream on NYE during the streamathon  I am making a desktop calendar and Post-it Note holder.  I will add a photo here once I get the prototype finished. 

1 sheet 12"x12" pattern paper (doesn't have to be double sided)

4" x 10"  med weight chipboard or cereal/cracker box

glue (double sided tape, glue stick, or favourite wet glue) 

3"x 3" piece of acetate (or plastic from packaging or food container) Can omit this if you 
           dont have any plastic.

roll of masking tape

paper trimmer or scissors

Calendar PDF   (click the word calendar to open then print)

Embellishments - this is a small project but I know some of you all love to add lovely embellishments to your projects this is where you can dress it up however you wish....

Are you making plans for New Year's Eve but don't want to leave the warmth of your home?  Well you are in luck.  

I am organizing a Streamathon on USTREAM.TV to help celebrate the New Year in MOST of the time zones around the world.  I belong to a wonderful community of streamers from all over the world who will VOLUNTEER to stream in 1, 2, or more, hour sessions.  So far there are only a few time slots filled, however, do not fear; one way or another (may include some major trickerheading!) all the time slots will be filled.  

So..... If you are a member of our online community and wish to stream in one of the time slots please contact me on Twitter or Facebook (if you follow me in either of these social media) or leave a comment here.  I will update the schedule here as times fill in.

As you can see there is time at the end of the schedule that is empty as I am waiting to hear back from one of 2 people to take this slot as Meko moved into another cancellation.  Well It is going to be a great number of hours of fun streams.... PLEASE REMEMBER THIS IS A FUN TIME AND WE ARE DEPENDENT UPON THE INTERNET AND USTREAM CONNECTIONS THAT ARE BEYOND THE CONTROL OF THE STREAMERS!!!!! 

Click HERE for a PDF of the streamers list you can print it and follow along that way if you wish...IMPORTANT NOTE - the links on the pdf will not link you directly to the streamer just to the ustream homepage for a live direct link see the list above.

Here is an interesting link showing all the time zone for the new year....
Our group has done this a few times before and it is a lot of fun.  Some streamers may work on a specific project that you can follow along with.  In this case I will post info here on an update.   Some will simply work on whatever is on their desk.  It is up to the individual streamer.

Also we are not organizing any major prizes or giveaways so please don't come thinking you can win a huge prize like some other streamers give away on NYE.  This is simply for fun and a chance to spend time with our wonderful art community.  That being said; some individual streamers MAY choose to have a giveaway but that is not expected and totally up to them and it will also be up to that streamer and their mods to decide how the giveaway will work.  

PLEASE NOTE:  Neither myself nor any of the streamers will give credence to complaints regarding the process of the giveaways.  There is lag with Ustream chat and therefore the streamer and/or their mod(s) will make final decisions on giveaway winners based on the results in their chat.

I hope to see you all Dec., 31st, 2016

Please remember this evening will be for FUN and FUN ONLY.....

Watch for future updates as we get closer to the New Year!

MusicScrp Stencils - Release 1


I have updated my files.  When you receive the files you will receive a number of formats.  You will receive   .svg,   .jpeg,    .png,    .dfx,      and    .studio   files. 

With these files anyone with a Silhouette cutter will be able to cut the designs even without the designer edition of the program.  The .dfx file can be cut by a number of cutters if the software program can open it.  You will have to check if your particular cutter can cut using this dfx file


 It is important that you NOT actually edit the file on the web.  You must choose to download the form the edit it and email it to me.  To download the form go to FILES / DOWNLOAD AS  and choose which format.  Sorry about the confusion on this it is the first time i have done this type of sharing on my post. Glad I caught it this early.  

Original Post

Hello everyone.  It has been a number of months since I have posted on my blog.  As usual I seem to have few words when it comes to my blog. Those who know me from the online Ustream community will find it difficult to believe that I find it difficult to write.  However, putting words down on paper or a blog is much different than speaking them in conversations.   

MusicScrp Stencils

Over the past few years I have discovered a love for designing digital files using the free program INKSCAPE.  I use it to create designs for stencils; I then cut them using my Silhouette Cameo.  These files are SVG files and therefore can be cut on any electronic cutter that will allow you to open/import svg files.  These designs can also be used to cut backgrounds / elements for a scrapbook page or art journal page.

After watching me use the stencils I designed in my art journal and on my gelli plate during my Ustream show, my online Friends In the Box  (FIBS) have convinced me to put these original designs of mine for sale.  I am not able to sell physical stencils because I don't have the set up to be able to keep up with that type of order.

I am selling these DIGITAL FILES for $1.50 - $3.00 CAD.  There are different prices depending on the detail in the stencil.  This is because the more detailed the designs, the longer it takes to create.  Please note that these are original designs and you are purchasing art designed by me, MusicScrp.  AKA Jean, Sassy, Camo Magoo, Cashew depending on which of my FIBS is speaking to me.  LOL 

With the purchase you have permission to use the files in your art; be that cards, art journals, canvases etc. I give you permission to sell original art using my designs you have purchased and cut on an electronic cutter.  PLEASE DO NOT SHARE THE FILES; they are copyrighted.   Instead, please direct interested friends to this blog post so they can purchase their own.  ALSO, If you are asked to cut designs for a friend that may not have a cutter,  i ask that they also purchase their own copy of the designs they wish you to cut.
