Dollar Tree Etched Shamrock Beer Stein

Need a fun and easy way to make something for St. Patrick's Day?  Look how cute this beer stein (or mug) looks with a simple etching of a shamrock on it.  Add your favorite beer, or green colored beer, for a festive St. Patty's Day celebration!!!














Here is the video on how easy this is to make, even if you do not have a shamrock die, use a heart!!



I got the stein or mug at the Dollar Tree.  They have them for sale for a $1 and are perfect to etch!!  I then used a heart die to create the shamrock shape in the Etchall Vinyl (see video for full details).


Apply the vinyl to the mug and then apply the Etchall Etching Creme and let it sit for 15 minutes to do its magic!!


Wipe off the etching creme and place back into the container, it is reusable!!!


Clean off the mug in the sick with water and then peal off the vinyl.  Dry it off and you have a fun Shamrock Stein ready for all the fun festivities!!!

Fun NEW Coloring Activity for Everyone!!

I love a good craft that I can do with the whole family, plus something that is not messy and looks great when it is finished!  Check it out below!

This post also contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.  Various companies provided me with some product to create this project.  The opinions I share are solely my own.


See how easy it is to create little fun art pieces with Color it Acrylic!


It all starts with the blank acrylic pieces that you color with any type of alcohol based marker (sharpie, Copic, etc).  I organized my markers on my desk (and then gave to my daughter to use on her craft table) in a little container from Deflecto.  



I use this little container so do not have my markers rolling around on the desk, and I do not have to keep going back over and over to grab new markers from from wall unit organizer also using Deflecto X Cube storage.  



It helps keep everything right in front of me so I can just have fun and color!  The Deflecto organizer hold 16 markers, so perfect for a little portable organizer!  These little acrylic pieces look so cool when they are colored in, just look at the butterfly!


It is so easy to make art, what will you make today!

Tips and Tricks to Getting my Craft Desk Organized

Staying organized is key to a creative space.  If you cannot find the item you need to use, then it can make your creative process super hard and fluster your process.  So organization is key!!  Today I tackled my drawer on my desk - it is the junk drawer and the one that I spend way to much time hunting for things inside it.

This post also contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.  Various companies provided me with some product to create this project.  The opinions I share are solely my own.



Check out my video to see how I organized not only my drawer, but a second unit on my desk as well!!



So this is what my drawer looked like before I got after it.  It really became the catchall for all the crap on my desk, when cleaning of the surface it was the catch for all kinds of things.  So the first job was to clean out the items that did not belong, and to even purge the things that needed to be trashed.


Now it is time for my Deflecto caddy storage tray to help keep all my little bits from rolling all around the drawer, it really did the trick!  I had a second 2 drawer system from Deflecto that I had cleaned out and purged to it came to the rescue!! 


the top drawer has all my bits for my camera that I need, but do not use all the time, like the strap and extra batteries.


The bottom drawer has extra electronic items, such as external chargers, extra cables, earphone, and other bits.


With organizing these two spaces, I was able to de-clutter a really large area of my desk and clean up a few different spots and items that really did not have a home.  Not everything has it place!


How area of your craft space are you going to organize?

Partial Die Cut Two Fold Fun Fold Winter Snowmen Cards

Fun fold cards are a blast, and in this card I teach you how to blend a 2 fold fun fold card with a half die front fold for a cute winter snowman card!

This post also contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.  Various companies provided me with some product to create this project.  The opinions I share are solely my own.



See how to make these card in the video below!!



The key to these cards is the special die that cuts only half of the image out.  You can do the same thing on your own projects, just roll your image only half way through the die cut machine, or cut your dies in half.


To hold all the super cute papers and elements together I used my Xyron tape runner.  It is the perfect adhesive that is so easy to use and also super strong!!!



Now here is the best part, why it is a fun fold card!!!



Look how it it opens, so cool!!  The measurements are below.

Measurements Base - 4.25 x 8.5 - score at 5"
Inside card - 3.75 x 9.5 - score at 5 (extra will be cut off when you die cut half of the stamped image - final size 3.75 x 9
