25 Days Left To Bake Countdown Tray

Dec 1, 2014

I was­n’t kid­ding when I said I love count­down cal­en­dars as much as any kid… here is a count­down cal­en­dar for all you bak­ers. It’s per­fect to place on your counter next to your cook­books or placed on your kitchen island.  And this year, I’m all about using what I have so the hol­i­day pick is from years past. Hob­by Lob­by has one with faux pep­per­mints that is call­ing my name but nope I’m not gonna do it… I’m stick­ing with the, use what I have method this year. Prod­ucts Used: Tray, Dis­tress Paint Linen, Amer­i­cana Chalk­board Paint, Hol­i­day Pick, Vin­tage Wood­en Sporks, My Mind’s Eye ~ Joy­ous Dec­o­ra­tive Tag & Alpha Stick­er Sheet, Cof­fee Archival Ink Tools Need­ed: Paint­brush, Craft Mat, Blend­ing Tool & Foam, Hot Glue Gun, Hot Glue Sticks This tray is real­ly sim­ple to...

Just 4u

Jun 7, 2011

I real­ly like the warm col­or scheme of this card. The com­bi­na­tion of the red and cream is so pret­ty. Of course the pops of Dia­mond Stick­les here and there are awe­some too. I cov­ered the bot­tom two jour­nal­ing cards with pat­terned paper and left the top one “Just 4u” as is, then dis­tressed and inked the edges and attached it to the mid­dle cir­cle using a pop dot. I think the Octo­ber After­noon Word Stick­er strips work great as the tones match the tones of the red and cream per­fect­ly. The strips add inter­est and col­or to the card in a super sim­ple way. Prod­ucts used are from the June Cocoa Daisy “Cher­ry Soda” Main Kit and “Choco­late Malt” Add On Kit. I have a few kits left over from my “Quilt­ed Mem­o­ries”...

Red, White and Blue…

May 30, 2010

and some sil­ver Ger­man glass glit­ter. The “Amer­i­cana” online work­shop I did last year is now on sale for those inter­est­ed in cre­at­ing items for July 4th. The cost for this work­shop is only $14.95. You will get six weeks of access to the pri­vate blog start­ing the day you sign up.  When I look at the projects cre­at­ed for this work­shop I think of drip­ping Pop­si­cles, fam­i­ly pic­nics and the antic­i­pa­tion of wait­ing to watch a night filled sky full of fire­works. In this Amer­i­cana Work­shop you will cre­ate 12 projects using the very strik­ing red, white and blue col­or scheme. All 12 tuto­ri­als include col­or pho­tos, step by step direc­tions, sup­ply lists and tools need­ed. Below are a few sneak peeks of projects you will cre­ate.  ...

Jul 1, 2009

First off… where did June go? I real­ly want to know. I can­not believe it is already July 1st. My Amer­i­cana Work­shop is start­ing to wind down. Talk about fun.

Back Home…

Jun 16, 2009

We had a great time in Beau­mont vis­it­ing fam­i­ly. It was an action packed week to say the least. So this week will be full of fam­i­ly type blog posts for those fam­i­ly mem­bers that live so far away. A few sneak peeks of some Amer­i­cana Work­shop projects will be thrown in here and there too. I can­not believe we are already into week 3’s projects. But first I must say being 2 and 5 sure is fun when school’s out for the sum­mer. Isabel­la and Made­lyn did a lot of this each day… They each loved it when I would pull their feet to get them swing­ing. Not sure what it is about that but they always want­ed me to start them swing­ing in this man­ner. I guess it is the thrill of...

Cocoa Daisy Sneak Peeks…

May 27, 2009

I am the guest design­er in June for Cocoa Daisy. And let me just say Tri­cia did a won­der­ful job putting the June kit togeth­er as it is so inspir­ing. I am pro­vid­ing a lit­tle PDF so that those who pur­chase the kit can down­load the tem­plates need­ed to recre­ate a lit­tle wall hang­ing. I will share sneak peeks of this project lat­er this week. And just so you all know, one lucky Cocoa Daisy sub­scriber will win a free pass to my Amer­i­cana Work­shop. I won­der if it will be you? Thanks for ask­ing me to play Tri­cia. It was great to once again be among the Daisy...
