It’s been a long time in the making, but I’m happy to be able to finally share with you a sneak peak at the forthcoming Splash Biome Tunnel Book I have been developing!
For quite some time now I have though the Totem Poppets needed a home. I wanted to make sure that it was both interesting and educational and also customizable. The pages fit a standard 3 ring binder and come preshaoed to look like a Splash that is receding as you turn the pages. Here are 6 pages total, each made from a nice stiff 100% recycled chipboard.
So to that effect, here a short flip through of the finished prototype of the Splash Biome Tunnel Book due to be released in the fall!
We are so excited to announce that commonwealth Charter Schools in conjunction with Box of Light an animation studio used our Totem Poppet animals today to create some really cute stop motion animation is!
Over 250 students signed up for this fun animation class. Box of Light and Capital Area Charter School will be traveling to all the major cities in Pennsylvania over the coming month.
You can check out the finished animations here! (I think the one with the Pegasus is super sweet. And the cat animation is just fabulous. They are all great really! Seriously check them out!!)

Good morning everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with my first post as a member of the EyeConnect Crafts Design Team.I am so excited to be designing with these amazing chipboard products. If you haven’t already, please take a look around the store and check out the fun chipboard products available. There are some really fun designs to work with.
I met my husband in the winter. To celebrate I made him a quick and easy anniversary card using a stamp from Stampendous and our Lace-Up Broken Hearts in Large.
Using a black off white card, I stamped this Stampendous block stamp on the card’s front and back in a square pattern using a gray green ink. I left the bottom third blank.
Then to add interest and make it pop, I painted one of EyeConnect Craft’s Lace-Up broken hearts in large with two different color blues. Once it was dry I added silver glitter to the top. I then stitched up the heart using a left over bit of turquoise ribbon from my stash.
I add this to the front of the card along with the text, “Happy 4th Anniversary” written in brown calligraphy pen. (You may have noticed I misspelled Anniversary. I’m a horrible speller and writing offline doesn’t have spell check. My husband and I had a good laugh over this.)
On the back I added a cute little fortune cookie fortune I had saved that says, ” This is the time for love and affection.”
In the inside I added a second fortune cookie note that read, ” A good beginning is half the task.” And of course “Love, Me.”
And there you have it, a very quick and easy anniversary cards. You can use this technique of stamping a blank card and then adding one of our chipboard embellishments for a quick and easy greeting card to celebrate just about any even. Try it out!
Our one-of-a-kind craft kits are posable!
So, go ahead and play with your art!

“I fell for EyeConnect Crafts’ Totem Poppets the minute I saw them. What captured me right away and has held my interest over the years is the design and how different they are from everything else in the world of paper crafts and mixed media. They are graphic and graceful, intelligent and sophisticated without being too offbeat, beautifully crafted, fun to use; neither too large nor too small. The story of each totem animal is an added bonus. I’ve always had an affinity for elephants and turtles. Now I know why! Like Goldilocks’ porridge: Just right!”
