Back 2 Back with Unique Laser Designs

Hello Crafty Peeps,

Today I am sharing a post I just did for Unique Laser Designs. 

I am on their Design Team for a 2nd term and can’t wait to start sharing with you all the new products they are producing almost daily.

But today I am just giving you 20 ideas of products you can combine with the Unique Laser Designs Wood Embellishments.

I used the stars and circles from ULD as my samples.


Tulip fabric paint, Stickles, Liquid Pearls, Distress Paint, Distress Marker, Colored Pencil,Heidi Swapp Archival Dye, Distress crackle paint.  All of these mediums were just one coat.  All of them

covered the wood to match their true color except for the Heidi Swapp ink.  You can see that star looks more green.




Glossy accents, Acrylic Paint, Chalkboard paint, Distress stain,Distress Embossing powder, Stazon ink.

Every one of these products was true to the color and look

awesome in person.  I love the glossy accents and the stamped

images on the wood. Are you getting any ideas?



Distress crackle paint (again), Glitter, Glimmer Glaze, Color Shine,Creative Impressions Paint, Copic Marker, Liquid Applique.

All of them look true to their color except for the copic marker, it looked more pink

but if I did more coats it may of been more purple.  I love the glitter and liquid

applique.. it looks so cool in person.




After seeing 20 different things you can add to the Unique Laser Designs embellishments I hope you start to look around your craft room for more ideas.  Remember I only did one coat.. you can add more coats and get more color.  But I really liked the results.


We all have the mediums.. now we need to just order more ULD wood embellishments.  Click to the website to stock up on our new shapes.


Multi Purpose Products

Most of you are probably getting ready for a long weekend of 4th of July festivities.

Here is a look at 2 DIY projects that you might want to make for this weekend.

I have seen these projects all over the blog world and pinterest.  These are just my version.  I wanted a way to reuse supplies I already had.

I am the design team coordinator for both Love My Tapes & Unique Laser Designs so I wanted to be able to use both of their products for these projects.

When time check out both of their Facebook pages and give them a thumbs up.. everyday they post projects from their other designers.

Once you get all of your supplies you can start painting the jars.

The stars you see are wood embellishments from Unique Laser Designs.  I hot glued them to the flat end of my colored pencils and then dipped them in the paint.  So I made my embellishments  into my stamps.

I used a wide washi tape from Love My Tapes to create the lines for my stripes.

I hope you find time to create your version.. either of these would make a great hostess gift.

Both of these projects we made during the class I teach every Tuesday and Wednesday.   So contact me if you want to make either of these projects with me.

Well time to go fill my mason jar with some yummy lemonade.  Have a great Holiday Weekend.

Love My Tapes~Mini Banners

Happy Monday to you~

I am a big fan of Monday’s.. although I had to drop my youngest off at summer school at 8 a.m.  that was rough.  I don’t do mornings.

Today I am sharing 2 projects I made using my Love My Tapes washi and fabric tapes.

banners jac












I used strips of the red fabric tapes and washi tapes to create a mini banner for my fireplace mantle and to go across a layout.
Same technique was used for both banners.. just fold the tapes in half over the twine or ribbon of choice and cut ends.

Super simple yet adds fun detail to any layout or card.
I love using the “LOVE MY TAPES” brand washi tapes.. they have a giveaway going on over on their facebook page, stop by to share the giveaway so you have a chance to win some of the tapes.
