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.

It’s Favorite Things Friday~

Loved by many: Jamie, Amelia, Debbie, Katy, & Heidi


Different colors on many of these, but Laura & Kimberly choose the Sizzix Big Shot.
