Wooden Blocks are Back!

So you know how I love playing with wooden blocks right?  Well I haven’t had any in a long time.   I made a special request to GENUINELY JANE STUDIOS and they made some!   I am super excited.. they are lighter, better, cut perfectly and are awesome.. I am back  to playing with blocks.

 

Here is my example of what I did with the first one.  I know it’s early but I love Halloween!  The hardest part of  this project was making the witches hat!  I used two rosettes for the bottom but I had to roll my own top piece out of cs then I painted it black to give it more weight.   I used Authentiques Glowing Collection for the paper.  I painted & glued a wooden candlestick to one side of my block.  Added a few mini clips to hold some Halloween pictures… and poof.. it’s done!

 

Do you want to play with blocks?  They are on sale for $1.81 at the Genuinely Jane Studios Website.. 3.5″ x 3.5″ of fun for only $1.81..

The Boo to You sign is made from taking a page out of the Birdcage book that I just posted a few days ago.  Think off all the signs you can make with that??  What would you do with a block?  I would love to hear your ideas.  Leave me a comment, like my Facebook page and one lucky person will be sent a block!

City Sidewalks, Pink Paislee Style & A Give-a-Way

If you love playing with tags and ephemera, you will love this collection.  Not only is the paper super cute but the collection has such a variety of papers that you can really use it further into the year.. I love the vintage flair and the true red and green that they used.  I created a block and 2 layouts so far.

Playing with Blocks

I am back again with another block that I made for Hannah’s.. my LSS.  I can’t help it.. I just love playing with blocks.

Here is my newest one using the new We R Memory Keepers Antique Chic Collection.. which I just love~

 

As you can see I used a black spool on top of the block and added a few stick pins.  For the feet I used wine corks.  Do you like playing with blocks?
