Ohhhhh you know sometimes life is so fun to live, huh? I am hanging on and enjoying every moment of it!! that's for sure! This week is my mom's birthday week, so we are having fun with all of her parties!! yup, in the Keller house, you don't just celebrate once…every birthday is a "fest"!! I'll explain more about that in August when "SALLYFEST" commences!! 🙂 yes, there will be art projects involved!
So today I want to share three really easy projects that you can do to impress YOUR mom!! (mom, i hope I'm impressing you, too!! LOL!!)
Stampin' UP! has their really cool embossing folder out for sale!! You need this Embossing folder!! It's called a Texture Impressions Die (page 204 in the Catty!) – the Manhattan Flower!! Check out what it can do!!!
and the inside…
I love this Parisian Breeze paper!!! And the stamp sets I used here are Sweet Sentiments (hostess FREE set) and the Note of Thanks (on the 10$ or less page!!! Love that!!)
So if you are used to using Cuttlebug folders, this little folder is perfect for your Cuttlebug or your BIG SHOT!! and if you need a Big Shot, I've got one for sale!! Well..I have a bunch for sale!! Check out my web site to order from your home!! 🙂
Okay…how about using your Big Shot or Cuttlebug with a die cut as cute as the cupcake in the Sizzix Big BOLD cupcakes die available from SU! We used that die for our cupcake sweetie envelope a couple of weeks ago at stamp club! But today, I used that same die to create my favorite animal!! a SHEEP!! heehee…
isn't that sooo fun??? Even Mr Gorgeous had the idea to use the heart as the head! I love this creative family!!
Here's the LO I did with it…
(that's cora…isn't she a doll?????) Everything on this LO is SU! except the Thickers letter and the I heart you stamp that I just picked up at a LSS. I know!! isn't it cute??? and that sheep???? Ohhhh I love my BIG SHOT!!!
and IDEA no.3…
While at my LSS, I picked up this really fun crackle paint!! I am such a sucker for a good crackle finish and this is for paper!! and acid free…sooo cool!!
so here's what you do…the thicker you paint it on, the bigger the cracks…but this is just paint and dry! You can heat it with a heat gun to make it crackle faster. I did…
So I was thinking it was a bit more opaque than this, but it works great, just showing a little bit of that gorgeous Parisian Breeze paper…just enough for the hint of baja breeze to show through. And this Antique Linen color matches So Saffron from SU! how cool is that??
So here's what I did with that…I added a piece of Texturz plate embossed So Saffron paper, a gorgeous picture of my two favorite men, striped so saffron ribbon + a brad, some neat Thickers stickers (addicted to those!!) and a stamp (yay!) and my fave…my sewing machine!! I love this…why do I wait to do this???
and here's a close-up…
Art is such a wonderful way to express ourselves! AND these fun tools are there to help you express yourself and create lasting memories for your family and you to enjoy forever and ever!!!!
