Simple Treasure

Hello All

 It's Glen here returning from a creative block/carpal tunnel flareup that kept me from posting for a few weeks. But I am making a comeback so I have a simple but nice project to offer for this post. I bought a few of these little fence post note-keepers on sale at Michael's and finally came up with a simple idea for it.

 I sanded the fence a little to mess it up and brighten it a little and then used Archival Ink to make the accents in the corners. Then taking the paper message I cut it apart and inked the edges and the front so I could adhere it to the fence with the gaps. Then a splatter of earthy ink to make a little more interest before moving on to paper and Best Glue Ever!

YIKES! Forgot to Remove Sticker from Shirt Before Washing? Watch this!

Hi All, Amy here with a potentially tragic story that has a happy ending! 

We've all been here-done it: Forgot to remove the "Hello, My Name is..." sticker before doing the laundry, only to find a gunky residue left on the top when it came out of the dryer?!?!  Sigh.

Knowing this easy solution might just get you out of hot water one day so you don't "throw the shirt out with the laundry water" (HAHA) 

Watch this quick tutorial!

LEDGER paper: What? Where? How?

He All-
Amy Here with some cute ideas for using ledger paper  in your crafts.

What's ledger paper??? It's columnar office accounting-type forms used to record transactions, finances, time sheets, etc.
Where do you get it? It's available on office supply stores, most papercraft companies have jumped on the trend, and I bought a stack at Goodwill for $1.  Click here to print your own. 

So now you know what and where, here's a birthday card with some ideas on the How:

Have you any ideas to share????

Help! My child's door is covered with sticker residue!!!!

Hi All-
Amy here to say it's very quiet in my home with my daughter gone off to college. Sad as I am, it did allow me to clean her room for the first time in many, many years!  When I finally uncovered her closet door, I discovered lots of sticky spots where formerly there had been double sided tape and decorative stickers. It wasn't coming off easy, so....WATCH THIS!!!

Crazy Head Pencil

Hello All

 It's Glen here with a fun project that will be an easy and cheap craft for kids parties or for rainy days when the kids are bored, if that even happens in this day of electronic stimulation. I like these pencils and have about four so far, they are only a $1.99 at stores like T J Max.

 I thought it would be fun to dress him up a bit for Halloween, so I took some of Tim Holtz's fabric and then after cutting it in strips I used the Best Glue Ever to place each one just so and let it dry. Then I added an earring and some transfers for a great look!

Back To School

Hello All
 It's Glen here with a short sweet post about the great products offered by ScraPerfect. Well, it's the unofficial end of summer, and while I'll be glad to stop sweating in the 80 plus temps we have had for two months. I am not looking forward to snow at all, there has been little time lately for crafting but I managed to make a nice project using one of Tim Holtz's "Fragments Frame Kit".

 I used a back to school paper pad and using the Best Glue Ever adhered the paper to a quarter inch of the outside edge and cut it to the reveal on the inside. When dry I used the Perfect Crafting Pouch take away those pesky sticky edges and began using my choices for the embellishments.
