Gift Frames from Tina

Hi all,

 Tina checking in with a project I threw together for my daughter, Kathryn. For those of you who know me, you know this was a big year as my "baby" is off to college. As we were winding down with her unpacking at Indiana University of Pennsylvania  Saturday night, she mentions that she feels that she should have something to give to her suite mates. Oh and that two of the girls made things for all of them! So, I came home and made these frames with Kathryn's input from afar. Texting pictures, for approval. Kathryn loves the frames and is happy so I am happy! The frames go out overnight mail tomorrow - dorm mates arrive Friday!

I painted wooden frames with acrylic paint, two- three coats. For the beach theme I also used the sand in a jar that we sell at the store. I have had it for awhile, and it was still great to use! I used 3-D embellishments to finish, with a small piece of burlap ribbon behind the shell. The hot pink frames are embellished with large satin flowers, Thickers 3D letters, fancy pearl bling (we sell it) and on one my signature pleated ribbon technique! So for all of you out there with someone in college or setting up an apartment this is a great inexpensive way to decorate. I am also using card stock on some frames for Kathryn. When they are done I will post them. Happy crafting!

My August Demo Day card

Join us Saturday 8/17/13 from 11-4 pm for our wonderful Demo Day!  I have had to miss the last 2 Demo Days for family reasons (all good stuff!) and am happy to be back in the groove for August.

We will be making this card at my table with a gorgeous poppy stamp from Impression Obsession.  I will have 50 available in orange and 50 in another color scheme.  I have had a love of poppies from as far back as I can remember.  I think I can link it to the Wizard Of Oz movie and Dorothy and gang laying down to nap in that huge poppy field.

I will have a variety of sentiments for you to choose from.  This would make a wonderful card for birthday, thank you, anniversary, and so many other occasions.

I hope to see you soon!
