Recycled Embellishment Jar..

Life at the moment can be summed up with one word…………………………Busy… with a capital “B”..

I’m so behind with projects, my poor wee craft shed is being neglected big time..

This evening I had some time to myself, the troops went to the movie’s to see the new James Bond 007 Skyfall so I had a couple of hours to play, which let me catch up with my Design Team commitments.

First on the agenda was a tutorial video for the poinsettia Christmas ornament I made a week and a half ago, this time I made a red one.. for the tutorial click here

 

Products used for this were :-

SP-00039 100 SELF ADHESIVE RHINESTONES – RED
BM-00078 50 LARGE RED POINSETTIA BLOOMS (60mm)
WT-00007 10 METRES RED DIVINE BAKERS TWINE (10.93 yards)

 

then I altered a small jar I had saved for recycling into something else…. in this case I cleaned it up and decorated and it now houses my cream pearl rose embelishments

 

 

products used for this were :-

SB-00008 VINTAGE SEAM BINDING RIBBON – OLOROSO
BM-00003 100 MIXED GREEN/WHITE TONE BLOOM SET
BM-00020 100 MIXED COLOUR SUMMER BLOOMS (20 colours – 3.8cm / 1.5″)

Hopefully i’ll be able to get more crafting in next week 🙂 .. until the next time have a great weekend

Floral Reflections…

Hi Everyone…. and a very happy friday to you all.

Here is this week’s Design Team project for Wild Orchid Crafts, there are a ton of flowers on this project this week!

This project is an altered Ikea square wooden mirror, I tossed a coin to see what colour it was going to be because I couldn’t choose between green or pink… head’s won and green it was 🙂

here is the before picture

 

I gave it a coat of White gesso and then a coat of Early Spring Green edged with antique white acrylic paints

 

and here is the mirror… before the flowers invaded 🙂

Halloween Treat Bag & Giveaway

Happy Sunday everyone… hope your all having a lovely weekend and the weather is being kind wherever you may be…

The sun is shining here and the sky is blue .. and my wee shed at the top of the garden is toasty warm with the sun streaming in through the window…

Today I have been concentrating on making my October Design Team Challenge for Wild Orchid Crafts..we were challenged to make a halloween treat bag.

 

Supplies used:~

  1. Glassine Bag
  2. Black Textured Cardstock
  3. My Minds Eye 12 x 12  Mischievous Patterned paper collection pack
  4. GT-00027 100 Grit German Glass Glitter from Wild Orchid Crafts
  5. GR-00018 1/2″ Black Gingham Ribbon (WOC)
  6. SP-00041 Deep Red Rhinestones (WOC)
  7. Scor Tape and Hot Glue
  8. Black Chipboard Spider from Deb (think its a Tim Holtz Die)

Here is a wee Photo Step by step for you 🙂

Take a glassine bag and line the edges and centre with Scortape

 

Remove the adhesive backing strips and place the glassine bag face down on the reverse side of the textured cardstock

 

Trim off the excess, then score the top (open end) to create a closure/flap

 

Stick down some spooky halloween paterned paper, pick out some ribbon, choose any embelishments, then stick them all down

 

I already had the spider ready and glossy accented down the glitter glass

 

then all that’s left to do is fill your treat back and tie a bow in the top to close / seal the bag 🙂
