Hi Everyone – a really quick party idea to share today using one of my favorite products this year – Vintage Vogue Spool Buttons from Pink Paislee. If your parties are anything like mine – you need to keep a pretty close eye on your wine glass throughout the evening! These are a great way to give your guests a good chance at remembering which glass belongs to them! To make these I used a plain wire ring (sold as wine glass charm rings or plain earring bases) and threaded on some beads for decoration. I used the stone chips as the first bead to stop the others falling through the center hole. Using pliers, you then bend the plain end of the wire 90 degrees to make a right-angle end to fit through the loop. Please leave a comment if you have any questions. Lowri 🙂 I am linking up this project to these websites here.
Hi Everyone Another Pink Paislee project to share today – this time using the Hometown Summer Collection. At the end of this post I have also announced the winner of my Echo Park giveaway. This bright and fun collection was perfect for decorating these Mini Drawers from Kaisercraft. I have used the printed tissue from the Pink Paislee Daily Junque Collection to cover the sides and edges of the project before covering the top and sides with patterned paper from the collection. This was easily done by cutting the tissue to size and using mod-podge to stick it to the mdf project. The baubles make wonderful handles for the drawers and small elements cut from the borders stickers make these great little flags on which to mount them. These gorgeous little girls from the chipboard pops add such a fun feel to the sides of the drawers and even the back of the project gets a fun and funky feel with this alphabet printed paper from the 6×6 paper pack. Hopefully my sister doesn’t see this post before Christmas as I am going to give her these for her little daughter! Please post a comment with any questions. Lowri 🙂 […]
Hi Everyone I loved this Snow Day Collection from Pink Paislee as soon as I saw it, however being summer here in New Zealand – nobody was stocking it! Fortunately it is available digitally from jessicasprague.com I have created this little fabric bag by printing one of the digital designs from the Snow Day Paper Pack onto fabric and using two of the digital elements to add a little extra interest. I used an extra piece of fabric to cover a button (printed from the Snow Day Paper Pack) Inside the bag are two little tops for a newborn baby to snuggle in – and I have decorated those too! Using more digital papers and elements I created some simple designs and put them onto the t-shirts using transfer paper I used the “Snuggle” element to add a little label in the back after removing the original labels that came on the t-shirts. I hope these ideas encourage you to think a little “outside the box” when it comes to digital scrapbook supplies! I wish my kids were still small enough to fit this tiny t-shirt! Please post a comment with any questions 🙂 Lowri
