Decorating the wall with a decal

Use a squeegee to burn the letters onto the wall.

Once you think everything is stuck to the wall, slowly pull the transfer sheet off of the wall.

If a letter sticks to the transfer tape, just press it back on the wall and rub it again.

Continue until the entire design is on the wall.

Now that summertime is here, eating and drinking outside happens more often. Having super coasters are a way sure to please your guest.

I used the new Altenew Graphic Brushstrokes Stamp Set to create these coasters.

Here’s how to create these coasters:

Paint each coster in the colors of your choice. Let it dry.

Stamp each sentiment from the Graphic Brushstrokes Stamp Set in the center of each coster using black ink suitable for wood.

Prep and prepare resin following the instructions in the box.

Pour the resin in the center of each coaster almost to the edge of the circle.

Add some glitter to the leftover resin. Use a popsicle stick and spread the glitter where you want it to be.

Wait 15 minutes then use a heat gun to clear out the air bubbles that will form.

Let each coaster dry overnight.

I love giving gifts to my staff. They totally appreciate all of my handmade goodies. The same is true to any new staff that comes on board.

When new staff arrives, I love to give them gifts as well. This notebook is a perfect gift. Each of my staff members and I write a welcome note on each of the pages and we present it to the newest team member as a way of saying welcome.

Cut 6 pieces of white cardstock to 2.75 x 3.75. Round the corner and adhere each to a page in the book.

Creating Shaker Cards with Queen & Co.

Hello everyone!! I’m happy to be here today to share some super cute shaker cards from Queen & Co. with you.

Queen & Co.

It’s been a long time since I created shaker cards, so this was so much fun to do. Once I started I couldn’t stop. I love that type of crafting. The ideas just flow because the company made it that easy for me.

Let’s take a look at the cards I created:

Fruit Basket Kit

I told you once I started I couldn’t just make one card. I had to make three. I used the Fruit Basket Kit for all of the cards created.

The kit contains:

(9) Fruit Theme Dies

(1) 6×6 Paper Pad with 24 sheets

(3) Yards of Twine

(15) Coordinating Foam Fruit Shapes with Acetate

Droplet Stickers (Watermelon Seeds)

Exclusive Fruit Toppings

Exclusive Sentiment Stamp Set

Epoxy Dot Stickers

 

With all of these goodies, you can make 15 of cards from one kit. Very cost effective.

Let’s take an individual look at them:

Lemon Card

I have to admit, my favorite of the three, is the lemon card. It’s so cute and I was able to make a clutch bag to go with it.

Fruit Basket Kit

I love the look of the lemons. They are fun and bright. They just cheer up a dull room. Plus, I love the taste of them.

My plan is to send this bag and card to my dear friend Wanda! She is amazing and is so deserving of a thank you!

Let’s zoom in:

Fruit Basket Kit

Did you see the lemon shaker pieces? I love them!!

Creating this card and the others was easy because Queen & Co kit their products with everything you need to create this card.

Strawberry Card

Fruit Basket Kit

Delicious!! I love the mix and match of the colors and the patten paper. The pattern paper included in the kit is double sided so it easy to mix and match the different pattens by color.

Fruit Basket Kit

Take a look at the tiny strawberry shakers/toppings. Aren’t they cutes? They make me want to eat strawberries right now.

Apple card

This apple card is perfect for teachers. Teachers would love this fun interactive card.

Fruit Basket Kit

The sentiment stamp set in this kit is fabulous. All of the sentiments are fun-loving. They match perfectly with each fruit.

Again, the shaker pieces just adds to the beauty of the card.

So what do you think? Will you give Queen & Co. a try? How about creating some shaker cards for your next project. Let me know.
