Summertime

October 17, 2019

The fall weather is here – I love the colors and flavors of fall but I miss the sun and warmth of the summer!

To create this layout:
Step 1 – cut your back matting – I used scraps left from previous projects and a piece of burlap I had



Step 2 – mat photo
Step 3 – cut a piece of paper to 1 3/4″ by 12 then use the 1 3/4″ stitched fishtail at both ends



Step 4 – Using scraps of coordinating paper cut two of the X’s from the Decorative Edges then cut them into strips



Step 5 – cut two Celebration flags and adhere together



Step 6 – Cut three flowers and leaves from the Tropical Florals



Step 7 – ink the edges of all the papers and die cuts
Step 8 – assemble as shown and add title

A Way With Words Joset Designs Silk Microfine Glitter

All That Glitters!

September 19, 2019

Hi friends, it’s Sandy Diller back with you today to share a fun and easy way to add some glam to your holiday season!

This project is perfect for gift giving or an easy kids activity. Let’s get started making these festive ornaments.

To make these ornaments I started with the clear glass bulbs that can be found in any of the big box stores. If you don’t find them now, it won’t be long before they show up. They come in many shapes and sizes and I have used a variety here. The tops pull right out for filling with your choice of décor.

As shown below – I have used the Beacon Fast Finish Decoupage to coat the inside of the bulb.

You can use as much as you like to coat the inside because what you don’t use will be returned to the bottle for future use. I like to fill mine about half way – cover the opening with my finger and – then move the liquid around until the inside is completely coated. Try not to shake it because that causes bubbles. Return unused liquid to the jar. If you should get a bubble, turn the ornament upside down and the bubbles will slide out. You may have to give it a little shake or tap.

Once the inside of the bulb is coated with the Decoupage Finish – and while still wet – the Silk Microfine Glitter should be added. Once again, no need to be frugal with the glitter as the unused portion will be returned to the jar for another use. Cover the opening and this time you can feel free to shake it until the entire inside is coated with glitter. Return remaining glitter to the jar. Depending on where you live, you may want to leave the lid off the glitter jar and allow some time for the glitter to dry out. I live in Arizona so it doesn’t take long. If you live in a humid climate you may want to set the open jar aside over night.

Using the Flourished Christmas Minis, cut two designs from silver paper and glue to the outside of the ornament. When the inside is completely dry, replace cap and tie a bow on top.

Tip: First add Double Sided Adhesive to the back of the paper before cutting the design. This way you will have a nice clean sticker to add to the ornament.

The process is exactly the same for all the ornaments, decorate as desired.

For this one, Iced Teal Silk Microfine Glitter and the new Snowflake die from Joset Designs was used.

Here Real Red Silk Microfine Glitter was used and another Snowflake from the same set as above. The Snowflake was cut apart so it would lie flat.

Here is an example of one of the beautiful colors found in the Earth Microfine Glitter Pallette. This one is further decorated with the Berry Branch die and Nuvo Drops for the berries. The branch was cut apart for a perfect fit.

I’m really fond of this one because of it’s unusual shape. After adding the Royal Teal Silk Microfine Glitter it became the perfect night sky. Some adorable little houses were added using the Village Edges die and the star is from the center of the snowflake used on the red ornament. The final touch is a stamped banner.

I have enjoyed sharing these ornaments with you and I do hope you will give it a try. I have linked all the products I used below for your shopping convenience.

Until next time – stay crafty,

S@ndy

Becky Seddon Joset Designs Planner Essentials Scrapbooking Soft Finish Cardstock Stamping

A Masculine Distressed Layout

July 31, 2019

Good morning!
I am a proud mom of two boys and therefor have created many masculine layouts.
There are so many awesome die from Elizabeth Craft including the new planner essentials dies and stamps that are perfect when creating those manly layouts!

To create this layout:

Step 1: after choosing your main sheet ink the outside edge then cover both sides of your paper with clear gesso and allow to dry or use your heat gun to dry. *covering both sides helps to cut down on warping that you may get when you use mixed media products.

Step 2: taking your planner essentials patterns 2 stamp, stamp the flowery looking stamp with brown ink at 1 inch from the left edge of the paper. then towards the top at about 5 inches from the left, then slightly higher at 6 inches, then closer to the bottom at 9 inches and again at 10 inches lower than the one at 9 inches. Allow to dry or set with your heat gun.

Step 3: taking a coordinating color of mist, use a paint brush to highlight these stamped images.

Step 4: mix another coordinating color of powder colorant (i.e. magicals) with embossing paste and using a palette knife apply beside and an top of stamped images and set with heat gun.

Step 5: die cut each of the following using coordinating papers:

Ink the edges of all the die cuts.

Step 6: assemble as shown.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
