New Challenge at Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog


Hey there Peeps. What a fun new challenge we have going this time at CHACB. The design team and I are sharing our Upcycled projects made with great supplies donated by our generous sponsor Canvas Corp  We all have lot’s of bits and pieces just waiting for a little love to turn them into fabulous treasure. I’ve chosen to upcycle a little chest that I liked the shape of…but the color???? Don’t even get me started on just how bad it was.

IMG_3742-001See I told ya it was bad. But it’s got these meshy parts….and a really nice shape. 1st step….shabby spray paint!

IMG_3746And here it is now! I’ve added a beautiful Damask printed canvas panel to the back from our fabulous sponsors at Canvas Corp. I can not tell you how much I love this printed canvas!!!!! I am going to put it on everything!!!

IMG_3749I just love how the Damask looks against the chippy paint. I was able to use a canvas bag that had originally came in the wire baskets I bought for my bakers rack to hold produce to line the inside of the chest.  You can see the bag through the mesh. I’m planning to use it in my studio to store envelopes and cad bases.

IMG_3743I used a little of the canvas fringe to create a pleated ruffle  to soften the edge of my flower arraignment…then started layering. The flower in the center if handmade by moi….some have a sparkle…some are buff colored. I used several White Wild Orchid Spiral Stamens, and Antique Metal Door Pulls from Graphic 45 to anchor the light colors.

Okay now it’s your turn to get your craft on and upcycle a fabulous project then link up to play along with us in challenge 13 at Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog. The prize for this challenge is amazing…..wish I could play along lol.

I invite you to stop on over and check out the projects shared by my fellow teamies…they are gonna knock your socks off!

Okay that’s all the break I get today….back to the kitchen remodel….I’m in the homestretch….hopefully this will be the last day.  I’m wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative.


New Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon


Hey there Peeps! Hope you are enjoying your day so far! I’m dropping in to share that we’re starting a new challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon. Back to School with Ribbon.   I have one in college and one in high school. How about you? Are you looking forward to the kiddos going back or are you dreading it like I always do? We get so busy….and I miss spending a lot of time with them. Okay that’s enough of my blathering…

IMG_3689I used Black Satin Swiss Dot’s from Really Reasonable Ribbon to wrap the card and create a poofy bow. The papers are from Graphic 45. I added some Die cuts and metal clips and a sweet little rose to accent the warm rich colors of the paper.

Okay….now it’s your turn to get you craft on! Just create a Back to School with Ribbon project and link up to play along. Head on over to RRR for details. Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative. G
