Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

Welcome to my NEW blog! For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for almost 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

I've been promoted!

I'm excited to announce I've been promoted to Associate Producer for When Creativity Knocks! Thanks Ana, Scott & Megan! I look forward to continuing to work closely with you all!

Another digi site!

I've been in a hybrid frenzy these last few days, and found another great site which offers a freebie kit monthly and a great store full of kits. I've been using hybrid elements not just for scrapping, but for all kinds of crafting!

Orlando, Here I Come!

Leaving on Tuesday for CHA in Orlando! I'll be working with When Creativity Knocks and Creative Charms. I will take lots of photos and share when I return next week.

I've also been squeezing in some time for a little scrapbooking these last couple of weeks. I am enjoying the options that hybrid offer me - found a great site with lots of freebies which I love!

The "Can we keep him Mommy?" set is great for a mom with boys like I have (always finding some sort of multi-legged creature and carrying it in to show me!)

Same photos, 3 layouts.....


I had these fun photos of the boys dressed up as "rock stars" playing their cardboard guitars (Yes, they are crafty too! They made these guitars!) - I decided to use them for a project I was working on for a manufacturer, but the boys wanted their OWN layouts and they really wanted me to use the "big guitar paper with the skulls!". As always, I couldn't resist whipping out my acrylic paint, a little bling with some red & clear rhinestones, and the paper has metallic guitars...... I just can't seem to stop being a "texture junkie". Rather than copy the original, I tried a couple variations - here are the results. The boys really liked them all :0)
