Make n Take Giveaway

Feb 7, 2012

The last day of CHA-W, I showed lots of people how to create this super cute flower pin. You use about 12″ of Maya Road Satin Pleat Trim, 12″ of Maya Road Pleated Tulle and a Maya Road Antique Jewel Button for the center. To create the flower all you do is attach the pleated tulle on top of the satin pleat using Fabri-Tac adhesive at the sewn edge of each piece of trim. Then starting at one end  loosely begin rolling the two trims until you get to the opposite end. Next, apply Fabri-Tac to a punched patterned paper circle and attach the bottom end (sewn edging) of the rolled trims to the punched circle, let the trims spread out a bit to resemble a rose. Then using a hot glue gun, attach...

Thrift Store Storage Containers…

Aug 31, 2011

It is certainly no secret how much I love going to thrift stores and antique shops. I have shared my love of this many a time on my blog. I love the thrill of the hunt and never knowing what you will find around each corner. I thought it would be nice to show you what I do with some of the finds as they make me very happy in my scraproom. There is just something so calming looking at and using items from days gone by. This little planter was my grandmother’s. I just stuck some batting in the opening, covered it with material I found in the remnant section of my favorite resale shop and now use it as a pin cushion. It’s perfect for my Maya Road pins and sewing needles....

So proud of my friend…

Jun 14, 2011

One of the neatest raffles at Paper Cowgirl was the “Altered Velveeta Box” raffle. All the money raised for this raffle goes towards the Tina Wright Scholarship Fund. Tina was a friend of Cindy’s (Head Cowgirl) and sadly passed away from cancer. Nearly $300.00 dollars was raised for this fund and it is awesome that it helps keep Tina’s memory alive. Tina loved art and being creative so this scholarship helps keep her passion going through young people in her home town. A trophy was given for the most money raised and ribbons were given out for the most votes. I am so proud of my friend Trisha. She won the trophy for most money raised AND got 4th place in most votes. Trisha teaches really unique soldering classes at The Crafty Scrapper. Her...

WOW…

Jul 28, 2008

We used pages from several of the many Maya Road Chipboard Coaster Albums, placed one of the cut sheer sheet templates on top of the chipboard page, sprayed the Maya Mist Orange on top (hold about 6″ from the page for best overall coverage), removed the Sheer Die Cut Sheet and sprayed the Maya Mist Metallic Gold on top of the masked chipboard page.
