Daily Reminder Tag Book


Hello and Happy Wednesday!  Yesterday, I shared my final UmWowStudio project.  :(  I have truly enjoyed my time creating for DeeDee and UWS and am hoping to be back soon!

For my final project, I created a Glittery Tag Book, with some of my favorite words to act as a reminder of how I want to live my life.

Even though my Tag Book may look complicated, it was very easy to create.  My supply list includes:

UWS Circle Peek-a-Boo Tag Book
Flower Confetti
Shimmerz Paints
Distress Ink
Tim Holtz Ribbon
Tim Holtz Word Stickers

I prepped each tag page with gesso, then liberally applied Shimmerz Paints to create a gorgeous background.  I heatset the paint to dry, then prepped a bunch of Flower Confetti with a coat of Gesso.  Once the gesso had dried, I adhered glitter with Mod Podge and let dry completely.

I wanted the Flower Confetti to peek through the circle cut-outs on each tag, so I lined up a top and bottom tag with each other, then glued the glittered flower confetti to the tag.

Using glue, I outlined each circle cut out, then added Glitter.  To finish the Tag Book, I added my word sticker sentiments and Shimmerz Paint colored ribbon.  Easy Peasy, yet one of a kind!

Thank you for stopping by!  Thank you again to DeeDee for believing in me!  I will miss creating for UWS!

Gelli Plate Art created with Hazel & Ruby Stencil-Masks


Hello and Happy Tuesday!  Yesterday, I was up on the Hazel & Ruby Blog with a project that will utilizes multiple crafty genres - Fabric Stitching, Painting, and Mono-Printing.


To create my 'Joy' Muslin Art, I took a scrap piece of muslin (cut roughly to size) and applied Gold Metallic paint directly to the fabric with a brayer.


I placed several Snowflake Stencil Masks on top of the Gelli Plate, then applied red acrylic paint to a 3x5 Gelli Arts Gelli Plate (again, using a brayer).


I then placed the fabric on top of the Gelli Plate and ran the brayer over the fabric to 'pick up' the paint and stencil-mask image.

To be honest, the image wasn't as crisp as I thought it would be (perhaps not enough paint or because I was using fabric), so on to Plan B.

Using the word 'Joy' from Holiday Shapes, Words, & Quotes set, I placed the stencil-masks directly on the fabric.  I then applied red acrylic paint to the Gelli Plate, using a brayer.  Using the Gelli Plate as a 'stamp', I stamped the paint to the fabric.  I removed the stencil-masks and viola - image created!

Note:  I love the small size of the 3x5 Gelli can be used in so many creative ways, stamping, printing, etc.

Using the Stenciled image as a guide, I stitched around the word, using embroidery floss.  Since the Gelli Plate naturally 'framed' my word, I also stiched around the edge to enhance the frame.

Once I placed the fabric inside a small frame, I added strips of 'Wrap It Up, Glassine & Gold' paper to the frame, and aging it with coffee.  And done!


My creative wheels are spinning with ideas using our Stencil-Masks and Gelli Plates.  They are a perfect match made in Heaven.

Hazel & Ruby MEGA Giveaway!

Hello and Super Happy Sunday!  This is a blog post you don't want to miss!

The FABBO folks over at Hazel & Ruby, have graciously donated a Monster Giveaway package!  One lucky reader will receive $200 of Hazel & Ruby product, including gorgeous Project Paper Rolls and the one-of-a-kind Stencil Masks.

I love being on the Makery Team for Hazel & Ruby, and here's a peek of what I have created this year!

The project possibilites are endless and I never run of of DIY, Mixed Media, and creative ideas!

In celebration of this Once In A Lifetime Giveaway, I created a little project that is perfect for the Holiday Season, but yet will go with my decor long after the season has passed.

To create these easy peasy beauties, start with 3 different sizes of styrofoam cones.  Spray each with Gold Metallic Krylon spray.

For the largest cone, I cut randomly sized squares from several Hazel & Ruby Tissue Papers, and Mod Podged them in place.

After the Mod Podge dried, I applied Crackle Paste to the entire cone and aged it with Distress Ink.

To create the medium cone, I wrapped heavy guage gold wire around the cone.  Took about 1 minute.  :)

And for my smallest cone, I adhered 3 colors of Hazel & Ruby sequins with straight pins.  This one took a bit longer.  ;)

And just like that, they were done!

So what do you need to do for a chance to win the Hazel & Ruby MEGA giveaway? 

Enter below!  That's it! I'll pick a winner next week! Good Luck!

Handmade Christmas Stocking Holders

Hi!  Today I am up on the Hazel & Ruby blog with a really fun DIY project that will add that perfect handmade touch to your Holiday Decor!

During a recent kitchen makeover, I salvaged these wooden shelf pieces.  My idea was to create a Handmade Stocking Holder using 2 shelves per holder.  I also used salvaged kitchen knobs to use as the stocking 'hook'.


After a quick spray of Gesso, I applied my Stencil-Masks to each holder, using bits and pieces of 'Holiday Shapes, Words, and Quotes' and 'Nativity'.


For the perfect Holiday Glitz and Shimmer, I sprayed Krylon's Glitter Blast, in Cherry Bomb over the stencil-masks.  Love this spray!  Using spray's over the stencil-masks really creates crisp, clean lines.  Love it!


Once the spray was dry, I sanded the edges of each shelf for a rustic, vintage feel.  I assembled the 2 shelf pieces together with screws, and added a door knob to each for the stocking 'hook'.  And done!  I love creating fast and easy DIY, while re-purposing objects into handmade treasures.

Ocean Inspired ATC Trio

Hello and Happy Thursday!  Yesterday, I was up on the UmWowStudio blog with a trio of Destination Unknown/Ocean inspired ATC cards.

ATCs have always been a favorite project type of mine.  I love little canvases and ATC cards are the perfect size.

To create the background for my mini scene's, I sprayed several shades of Shimmerz sprays, then heat embossed to create 'waves'.  A few splatters of spray mist and the background was perfect!

I wanted a lot of texture on my chip pieces, so I heat embossed the large pieces with chunky embossing powder and the smaller ones with glass glitter.

UmWowStudio Chipboard used:
SeaLife Set

For a bit more whimsy, I added a piece of flair to each ATC card.  I love the dimension it added.

UmWowStudio Flair used:
Set Sail

Wrap it up with a piece of twine and a sticker sentiment and DONE!

Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day!
