Shake a Little Love

January 19, 2017

Hello ribbon lovers!  Let's shake it up a bit this Valentine's Day.  Why not create this sweet shaker of love to give to yourself or someone special?
I created this sweet salt shaker photo holder using beautiful ribbons from the Really Reasonable Ribbons January Ribbon AssortmentBakers Twine Cherry and the Pearl Heart Ribbon Sliders.  

I filled the salt shaker with red glass glitter and then wrapped it with the ribbon and added the slider.  Next I used wire to create the photo/image holder. 

To complete it, I tied the tag on and added glitter glue to the ribbons and images for extra shimmer.

This is a simple project that is easily created in a few minutes.  
So create a few to keep and give away!

Sew Beautiful Mini Album Kit

January 18, 2017

There are some times, when I design something that is so near and dear to my heart...  this is Sew Beautiful Mini Album Kit is one of them.  
Using beautiful papers from 7 Gyspsies, Tattered Angels and Canvas Corp Brands.

And lots of yummy vintage inspired embellishments, ribbons and images.
Sewing and crafting bring back so many wonderful family memories of watching my mom sew.  For many years our mom made our clothes.  
Then sitting at the feet of our Grandma Jones as she taught us how to crochet.
The fast forward to all the crafting and scrapbooking times with my sisters, kiddos and dear friends. 
Then being able to share my passion of crafting with others has been a joy too.  
So many lovely people met and friendships formed from around the world.
Many blessings and friendships have been formed because we speak the language of the desire to create something with our hands.
I will be filling this album with all the sweet images of these memories.  
So I can document all these beautiful memories that have brought such joy to our lives. 
Do you love creating?  How about documenting your crafting memories with Sew Beautiful Mini Album Kit.  Get yours today before the sell out.

Soldering Tips

January 16, 2017

Do you love creating beautiful wearable artwork that is a special part of who you are? 
Do you love learning new techniques and capturing memories under glass?  
Then learning how to solder might just be what you are looking for...
Did you know that there are two types of soldering?  
1. Soldering with a torch, often called hard soldering or silver soldering.
2. Soldering with a soldering iron which is usually referred to as soft soldering.
Tips:  Soldering guns are not all created equal.  The most important things to look for is the tip style and wattage.  A minimum of 60 watts with a chisel-tip is recommended.  The pointy tips are designed for electronics, small jump rings and jewelry.

Soldering is a fun and easy way to create memories under glass.  Why not grab a friend and register today to learn fun new techniques to help you capture your memories at the Key to My Heart Soldering Workshop on Tuesday, Jan 24th from 6:00 - 8:00 pm.  
Don't have a soldering gun?  No problem, we will have some available for you to use the night of class.  Come create this soldered necklace that you won't want to take off.

Jumping out of your Comfort Zone

January 11, 2017

There are sometimes, when I stretch a little further out of my comfort zone.  A few years ago, I had a period of time when I was stretching a little more out of my comfort zone...  Now with the start of this New Year, I am starting again feeling like I need to stretch, grow and jump out of my comfort zone.   
I shared this layout that I had done a few years ago, that took me out of my comfort zone back then.  I loved the grunge, edgy look and feel and the colors use.  

Currently, I am working up the courage to jump out of my comfort zone... Are you?

Just Because Card

January 9, 2017

Hello, ribbon lovers.  Do you enjoy creating cards to send to that special someone?  
To create visual interest and dimension, add layers of pattern paper, ephemera and images.
I added a little of the Juliet Lace to add additional layers.  And don't forget that you can add dimension to your ribbons and bows too.
I layered the bows by creating two bows using the Soapstone Seam Binding and sandwiching the Burlap String Ivory bow between.  
You don't need a special occasion to send a greeting... You can send a card just because.
