Summer Wreath

I made a Summer Wreath for my front door.  All supplies were already in my craft room too.  It's not your normal grape wreath or pool noodle but it's fun just the same.
 
I cut "fit to page" for my Plantin School Book "S".  It's my favourite font.  I traced the S on cardboard then cut.  When you wrap the twine it really firms up the cardboard.  Just use Hot Glue and wrap away! 
 
Be careful, I melted my finger prints off;)
 
I really tried to stay minimal.  I simply cut canvas with Tattered Floral to make the flowers.  On this one I stamped with Paris Memoir, the word stamp.  The butterfly is smeared with some summery Distress Paints and heat dried.
 
 
Cutting grunge board and Word Play die I spelled SUMMER and attached with some screen mesh.  More hot glue to keep it in place. 
 
 
This flower I didn't stamp or ink...or ANYTHING!  Shocking...I know.  This metal embellishment is an Upholstery Nail I got and Home Depot.
 
 
UGH one day I'll get to change my horrible door!  But for now sprucing it up with my version on a summer wreath helps...I hope?
 
 
 I'm not a "wreath" kinda girl.  But this is pretty organic so it appealed to me.  The whole thing took about an hour and a half.  Not bad considering this was all lying around my craft room.  Well, not really.  I am organizing and came across the twine, which got me thinking...

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…

Pumpkin Parts Thanksgiving w/ Xyron

While my Thanksgiving may be over it is coming soon south of the border.

Xyronis getting ready for holiday season and what better way then with the Pumpkin Parts die cut.  This easy card is layered with paper and ink to create a festive pumpkin card.  The team will be sharing their fall inspired projects all week so be sure to pop by for lots of inspiration.



The Create a Sticker is great for all the smaller pieces to layer and quickly put together.  For a quick background stamp the craft sheet with Distress Oxides, spray and drag.
I cut Thanksgiving from the Sentiment Words Thinlit and attached with the Sticker Maker.Fall Foliage has this little hay die cut that I added to the bottom of the pumpkin attached the Xyron Mega Runner.
I clipped a couple of the Twisted pieces for a little green for the top of the pumpkin.





Don't miss any of the inspiration with the rest of the Xyron Team.
