Another sampling…

Nov 18, 2008

I have received sev­er­al emails ask­ing if it is to late to sign up for my work­shop… no, it is not. The last project will be post­ed Novem­ber 28th and I will leave the work­shop open until Decem­ber 15th 31st. This should give every­one time to com­plete the projects, print out the many down­loads of vin­tage post­cards, greet­ing cards, tem­plates and copy any recipes you might want to give a try this hol­i­day sea­son. Below are some of the projects cre­at­ed in my 12 Days of Christ­mas online Work­shop. They are part of the Count­down to Christ­mas week­ly projects. Week­ly projects are post­ed every Mon­day, Wednes­day and Fri­day. I also have week­end projects which are post­ed every Sat­ur­day. In this work­shop there are a total of 15 projects. Each project tuto­r­i­al includes col­or pho­tos...

Embellish the Embellishment…

Nov 12, 2008

I do this all the time… espe­cial­ly if what I am about to use already has glit­ter such as these cute lit­tle bells. It seems they nev­er put enough glit­ter on them so I dip a paint brush into some Elmer’s School Glue no run Gel, brush it on the bells, then sprin­kle more glit­ter on top. Once the glue is dry I take my Plat­inum Stick­les and go all around the edge. I feel this gives it that true vin­tage look. Then I put a drop of hot glue from my glue gun in the cen­ter of each bell and add tiny jin­gle bell to each one. Now you have a per­fect­ly embell­ished...

Class Length: 4 Hours Skill: All Lev­els The sen­ti­ment “Home Sweet Home” can make you think of many things… spe­cial items in your home a spring gar­den and most impor­tant­ly those spe­cial peo­ple and pets.

Sprucin’ up the place…

Jul 5, 2008

The but­tons run all the way down the front of her skirt and look so pret­ty when the light hits them. I think the lit­tle bird rest­ing on some moth­er of pearl but­tons looks as though she is telling a few of our fam­i­ly secrets.
