Vintage Travel CHA Release- Adirondack Chair

Ready for another look at a new CHA 2015 Eileen Hull Vintage Travel Release! Get relaxing with this awesome Adirondack Chair!  This chair is a blast to put together and super fast.  Leaving lot's of time to add some fun embellishments.
 
 
I started by inking the chair with distress paint brushed corduroy.

 
Now to embellish...

 
I am no sewer and judging by my terrible pillow that is obvious.  But, nonetheless I had some scraps of Electric Elements fabric that I stuffed to create a pillow.  Lol... I tried!

 
I used a mini wooden spool to tuck a tattered pinecone flower in. Then an added pinecone and some greens.
 
 
As soon as I saw this chair my first thought was a "Gone Fishin" sign.

 
I stenciled the wood grain.  But a texture fade with grain would work too.

 
Don't forget the back! 
 
 
The best part was adding all the fun embellishments.  This whole thing took me about 45 min to make.

 
Finally all my projects made it to CHA and are on display along with the rest of the Inspiration Designers creations.  The Luggage Tag I made is tucked behind the Adirondack Chair.

 
Thank you for taking the time to visit and share your excitement.  I'm so relieved everything finally made it.  It was a nail bitter!  
 
Check it out!  The rest of my Teammates are sharing and linking their Vintage Travel projects HERE.
 
I'll be entering this cute chair and "Pillow" in the Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge!  The awesome Inspiration Emporium is hosting this round of giveaways...YAY!  There was a lot of fraying going on but I sewed most of it up.  So, it may not count ;P

Halloween Decor- Pennies a project

SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas?  I have a few for you.  These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks.  BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows.  These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat".  Hangs over my spooky dining room.  Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut.  I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume.  This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.

Happy Halloween!
Candles
Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise!  I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off.  I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than…

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…

Paper Smooches Passport

It's no secret I love journaling of any kind including the Passport die.  Creating little books everywhere I go and with everything I have.

Xyron and Paper Smooches are teaming up this week and a ton of creativity.  Creating pages is essential to journaling and the Notebook Paper Twostamp is perfect for these inserts.  Check it out...


Roll the cover pieces of the Passport Die through the Creative Station, switching out the 5" refill for the 9" refill.  Work one side at a time to quickly adhere Wild Whispers paper.

Apply inside pattern paper, flip and repeat for the exterior paper.

To make things easier I used my new Tonic Studios Stamp Platform.  With all these pages I needed precision stamping for the notebook lines and teeny letters to create "notes".

I don't want plain pages... that's boring.  I inked and stamped the all the letters with antique linen randomly on each page.  Add a little paper detail.  But just a little ;)

Lets stencil because we can…
