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...
