Farmhouse Kitchen Decor

I have all these frames I got from some friends and I have been playing with how to use them in fun ways.  Here is one where I turned them into a pair of wall decor art pieces for the kitchen, with a farmhouse rustic feel.



I loved the idea of the honeycomb paper "Sweet as Honey" in the Hazelwood Collection from a collection by 1canoe2 and American Crafts paired with a kitchen theme.  Here is a video on how to make this fun kitchen decor.



The colors were perfect for a rustic look, adding in a little spoon and fork to as the focal point, and then little touches of the cork embellishments just make it all amazing!


Taking an old frame that is gathering dust and re-purposing it for something else is fun, gives your old items some new life.  The paint is easy to sand off to give it that old rustic and weathered look, and it even work amazing on the fork painted black and sanded!


I used my Xyron Creative Station to apply sticky to the back of all the cork pieces to all me to stick them to the frame, it works wonderfully!!

Upcyled Jars with Fringe Trim for Wedding or Hula Party Decor

I love to take something that would normally go in the recycle bin or even the trash and turn it into something fun and useful!  Check out my upcycled jars that can be used for party decor with a little fringe and other cute trims.  Depending on the color and trims used they can be made for weddings or even a hula party!!  Lets start with the hula jars first.


Here is a video on how to make these fun hula jars!


These super cute jars can be used for so many fun events.  First you can use them for just storage of your crafty supplies.  I gave a few of these to my kids teacher for a fun end of year gift!


You can also use them as a vase for flowers!!


Add your plastic cutlery in them for a fun hula summer outdoor or indoor party!


Really you can add just about anything into these fun food safe jars for any type of party, even a kids Moana themed party!!  Here is a jar with straws.


Try adding a few jars together for a cool trio or set as a centerpiece in your hula party!


These jars are so easy to make, just a little fringe from Expo International and some pompom trim and you are set!!  Pick any color of fringe and pompoms to make it your own.  To hold all the layers of fringe and pompom to the jar I used Supertite Universal adhesive.


I also have a coupon code for Supertite glue, it is the liquid glue I used to hold all the embellishments together and onto the cards and it is a wonderful glue that is so much cheaper than other glues out on the market, plus it has less chemicals!!



Coupon for 10% off your Supertite order of $5 or more 

Changing the color the fringe and adding lace and beads to the top bring a whole different feel to this dressed up jar.  New it take on a whole wedding vibe.



Here is a video on how to make these wedding fringe jars.



Using the white fringe with the lace and keeping it all white is just so pretty.  The little bit of beaded fringe at the top just looks so elegant.



You can also add a layer of black around the top of the jar in a bead or braided trim.  Instead of black you can also add a layer of trim that is one of the colors of your wedding.




Such an easy and fun way to make an elegant centerpiece for your wedding, some jars, fringe, and lace!

10 Crafty and Girly Card Ideas Using June Love from Lizi Card Kit

I am just in love with the June Love From Lizi kit.  It has such a cute theme of being crafty and creative and lends to making some super sweet cards!!  Here are 10 cards that I made with this super crafty kit.



Here is a detailed video on how to make each using this fun kit!


This kit is filled with yummy papers, a cute stamp set, Nuvo drops, sequins, ribbons, a stencil, dies, and just so much more.  Check it all out below.


Check out the full unboxing video here.



Some cards I made super simple using the papers in the kit and just added a couple of little embellishments like the Tonic Nuvo Drops and inked edges to make it work as one.




There was also a build your own girl stamp set in the kit, so I had some fun and made my girl with some blue hair to mimic my fun blue hair...well before it all faded out, hehe.  I also used the stencil in the kit to make the plaid background for the card.



I love layers on card, it just add some much depth to a simple card.  Here are a few cards with some super simple layers but it really makes the card pop!





I also love doing a shabby chic card and with the crochet doilies in the kit I had to make some super shabby chic card with them.



I also took a bit of turn on the next card using a diagonal slant as the focus and then had a blast with some fun sequins to make it sparkle!


On the last card I made it a gate fold card with layers of ribbons along the edge with the fold.  Check out the video for the surprise on the inside of the card!!


For the heavier layers of papers or embellishments I used Supertite Glue.  It was perfect for helping holding it all together!!



I also have a coupon code for Supertite glue, it is the liquid glue I used to hold all the embellishments together and onto the cards and it is a wonderful glue that is so much cheaper than other glues out on the market, plus it has less chemicals!!
