HOME DECOR: Fluffy Burlap Wreath tutorial with video!

Hello crafters! Sharing a Home Decor project with you today.

This is a Pinterest inspired project although the tutorials I found were a little vague and a little hard to follow, I figured I couldn't be the only one to feel this way so I thought to share how I made mine on video and share it, so I'm not gonna type a whole lot here! 

You'll find my supply list right at the beginning of the video so you could refer back to it whenever you want.  

Thanks for stopping by. If you have any questions please just let me know in a comment, thanks!

For my social media links, you can find them all in the navigation bar above.... again...thanks!! 

Here are some pictures...




Enjoy the video!! :)

Tutorial: How to make an elegant square style envelope!

Hello everyone!

I hope your week is going well:)  

One of my passions in paper crafting has been designing party invites and announcements for family events. I'm currently working on a Wedding set for a client in Los Angeles who is getting married in February 2015. I've already finished up her "Save the Date" announcements and have started on her invitations. Along with the wedding invites I'm designing RSVP cards in a postcard style that will accompany the wedding invite in a handmade envelope made from a coordinating cardstock. One of the best cardstocks out there on the market are made by American Crafts hands down, so I used "vanilla" which is a cream toned and is a textured cardstock!

I decided to go with a square styled envelope instead of a triangular style which is where all the pointed ends of the cardstock come together, I felt the square style had such a classy look and it was a perfect fit for this event. 

I decided to share my process in a video in hopes that it will help anyone to make this style of envelope who hasn't made one and would like to give it a try.

Here's my process vid. If you have any questions please feel free to leave me a comment below! Enjoy:)



Products used:
1~AC 12x12 textured cardstock in "Vanilla" 
2~Trim and Score board by "We R Memory Keepers"
available at thejuleboxshop.com here
3~ WRMK Corner Chomper available at thejuleboxshop here

I appreciate you stopping by! Have a wonderful creative day!

Romantic Prima Metal Frame!

Hello friends!

I altered this frame by Prima a while ago, it's a little late but I'm glad to be able to finally share it! 

This is what the frame looks like when you first buy it....
 It's 12 1/2" tall and 6 1/4" wide. The depth of the box itself is about 1 1/2", not too bad to add some little pieces to cute up the inside!

I purchased my frame from my buddy Laurie, you can find her on FB, YouTube and ArtFire under "Moore Art from the Heart"! She's on blogger and Pinterest too, but you can find the links on any of her other social network linked here:)

I decided to use Prima's Stationer's Desk for this project as I feel has such a beautiful romantic look and feel! I decided to also make a video of the intro and the process for those who like to watch while projects are being made, here's the video....

Make your own tool for placing tiny embellishments!!

Hello again!

As I was making these cute little "Tiffany & Co" baby shower invites I started to add on these rhinestones, they were self adhesive
 
 (There's a full post and more pics in the previous post)
but I didn't like that I had to cut them up and that when I did there was a little bit of it showing...I didn't like how they looked. They were all on a row of adhesive and in order to use one, you needed to cut them off of the glue strip, so I picked all the rhinestones off leaving them with no adhesive. I would have to stick them down myself, I was fine with that but then, how to pick them up and stick them down???......So I came up with my own little tool!

Here is my video, enjoy!
