FFC # 206 Java Frame

Thank you for joining me for another Challenge.
I wanted to try something a little different and decided to not make a card this week.
I used my digital print from Bugaboo stamps and placed it in a frame that I have had in my stash for a while.
I am a huge coffee fan and will be hanging this up in my kitchen.

FFC #196

Hello ladies and thank you for joining me for another Fun Friday Challenge.

Todays sponsor is The Cutting Cafe' and I will be using the  3D cup  which can be found in their store. This cut file was so much fun to work with and there are so many ways to use it.




If you need help with the instruction (like I did) on how to assemble the 3D cup you can find them on the cutting cafe' page. 


I was inspired fill my cup with flowers when I found those leaves while enjoying a fun day outside with my little ones.


In order for me to get the effect that the flowers are different heights. I crumpled some printer paper and add it to the top of the cup.  I positioned the flowers until I was happy with the look and guide them on with tack glue. Learn from my mistake and use hot glue so it instantly sticks. I can't tel you how many times my flowers fell. of because the glue wasn't dried.


I painted my cup with regular acrylic paint. I wanted my cup to look ceramic so I made sure that to leave bush marks when painting. Be careful not to use a lot of paint so the paper doesn't warp.

Rinea foil tag

 Hey everyone and thank you for stopping by my blog for another Rinea design team project. 
For my project I decided to do one of my most favorite projects to create.......tags. 



I love creating tags for birthdays, graduations and baby showers. 
I find that I like to make these ahead of time so that I can quickly grab and go whenever I need one for a gift. 

For my tag I used the Tim Holtz kraft tags and distressed the edges with my sissors creating some tears in random spots. 

I them added texture paste randomly on my tag going diagonally from the top right corner to the bottom left corner. I took my heat gun to dry my texture paste quickly. As most may know I'm very impatient hahaha.

I then use scraps of Rinea foil paper in the star struck gold which I tore the edges to give the foil a distress look.  I then added the foil to my tags. 
I love using Rinea foil because it gives each project that pop of shine.  

I found a random piece of lettered pattern paper that I placed in the middle of my tag and used as an outline to create my flower cluster.  
As most may know my go to flowers to use are wildorchid craft flowers which is used in various sizes. 

I added dark brown twine and called my project finished.

This project was quick and easy to make.

Don't miss out on these amazing products. They are reasonably priced and come in a variety of colors and textures.

Altered Pringles Can using Rinea Foil

Hey guys and thank you once again for joining me for another Design Team project for Rinea.



It seems every month I have a new found obsession.  From banners to mixed media canvas to my new favorite Bullet Journaling which has also included a pen obsession and Distress Inking.
While sitting at my desk planning my week with pens and blending pads scattered everywhere trying to find the blue blending pad I just had a second ago, it came to me.
Why not use the Pringles can I threw out in the recycling bin and alter it into a pen/blending pads holder!

Which leads to my altered project.
 I couldn't be more happier of the outcome of my project and knew my crafting friends would enjoy it also so I made a quick tutorial which you can find the video linked below or at my YouTube channel.

 

 I was able to create this beautiful pen holder with supplies I had in my stash
. This is a great way to upcycle "junk" or as I like to call them treasures! 


Below are some Glamor shots of the new ink blender holder.
