Finally updating my blog.

Martha Stewart Paint

So Martha Stewart just came out with this new paint line that is sort of amazing. It is one paint that works on multiple surfaces. I definitely like the idea of using one paint for glass painting, fabric painting, wood and paper. And the colors are yummy.

So I have 160 paints now - not sure how many total. There are different finishes: satin, glitter (which is really sparkly), pearl, metallic, and high gloss. I got my old paint spinner (that I never really used) out of the garage and it fits them all perfectly. I organized them by color and they are right at arm's length.

Perfect Glimmer Mist Storage

When I first saw the informercial for the Swivel Store I knew I had to have it. I thought it would be the perfect solution for my glimmer mists. My local Walmart had them in stock, so I didn't have to order it. It works wonderfully.

I made a video showing all the details.

Making Memories Photo album box

My mom "commissioned" me to spruce up these Making Memories photo album boxes for the Women of the Year nominees at her church. Instead of just giving them a framed certificate, she slid a mini certificate in the front of the box. Now they get a keepsake of day and something they can use for years to come.

I used my cricut and cut some chipboard flourishes (I think Home Accents). Then I painted them with Ranger gold paint dabber and some walnut stain distress ink. The red ribbon was too bright so I grunged it up a bit with walnut stain distress ink, water, and walnut gold glimmer mist. I added the clusters of paper roses and leaves and VOILA! I think they turned out pretty cute.

Cricut Message Board Swap Mini for Sandra

Finally got a chance to put the pics up from this swap mini I made for Sandra. It is 8x8 chipboard...all Cosmo Cricut and Prima.

Vintage Tag Swap on Two Peas

I had so much fun with this swap...I made there...Love, handmade florals, and vintage kitchen.

For the Love tags I used Martha Stewart heart shaped coasters that I painted inked and glimmer misted. I handmade the flowers and I used some starburst sprays and used a vintage looking bead for the centers. I cut gold swirls on my cricut and used some amber/brown/gold beads for the stick pins. I added some feathers and some red lace...and stamped the word LOVE on the coaster.

The handmade flower tag I used a page from a vintage book (published 1920s), stickles, a pearl top pin, tons of mists, paints and inks, buttons, ribbons, and fun. I made the cream flower with my cricut.

The vintage kitchen tag - I used again mists, paints and inks, chipboard embossed with cuttlebug, stamps, primas and my Martha Stewart double scallop border punch.

Another Flower Swap for YPP

For the vintage theme flowers..I used kraft paper and cut butterflies with my cricut and embossed them in my bigshot and used them instead of leaves on my flowers.

Birthday Cards

Made these for my mother in law and grandma for their birthdays. Used Tattered Angels Chalkboard mist, KandCo paper, kraft cardstock, chipboard, Imaginisce stamp, paper flower
