Now that I am back from the show I can share with you photos of the projects I made for BasicGrey. The first is an altered canvas that I turned into a shadow box. Because the opening is covered in plexi, it is hard to get a good photo without any glare.
I am home from California! I am still trying to recover from a nasty bout of car airplane sickness. The show was amazing! I didn't make it too far away from the Pink Paislee booth very often, but when I did, it looked crazy! Things went crazy good fabulous for Pink Paislee. I was so thrilled to get to be a part of their amazing launch. When I have a few more minutes, I will update here with some photos and links.
I think this might be my favorite project from my Pink Paislee projects. This mailbox sat on my front porch forever. I bought it thinking it would be cute on the house, but David didn't care for it. It ended up sitting on a table as planter for pots of flowers in the summer. Last week I was staring out the window looking at the snow and suddenly decided that mailbox NEEDED paper glued to it. I ran out grabbed it, ran with it downstairs and went furiously to work. I am pretty sure that Anna, who witnessed the whole thing, thought I had lost it.
So anyway, bits and pieces of paper later, the mailbox has a new life. . .
C'mon, sing along with me. . .
In just a few hours I will be heading out to the airport to meet up with Holly and take off for California. Gosh, I am so excited to not only go to the show but to just get away for a few days and hang out with friends. I am so excited to see Rebecca again and get to meet a ton of the girls I know from online. . . and not to mention being surrounded by scrappy goodness at every turn!
I have been so crazy busy trying to finish up several things before leaving that I have completely gotten off track with blogging! I still have a ton of projects that I want to share.
I am hoping to post some while in California and share some things from the show. Until then, I will share a few more Pink Paislee goodies.
First up, an altered frame wall hanging type thing. This was a piece I found at Hobby Lobby (suprise!) that had raised center with rooster print decoupaged in it. I thought it was a great dimensional piece.
A couple of days ago I shared photos of the project I was hoping to offer in March. Well, there is good news and bad news. . .
The good news is that the gals at the store love the concept and gave it a green light. The bad news is that the Love Story line by Making Memories isn't available any longer so we won't be able to get it in for the class. So instead, I have made a new decor board with a spring theme featuring the new Garden Party line.
Please excuse the bad photo, I take a better one when I have a chance with better light.
If you are interested in this class, it will be March 2 from 1-3 pm at For Keeps Sake in St Louis. If you check out the tab at the top of the page, you can check out my teaching schedule and learn more about the decor board projects that I will be offering monthly.
Yay!! Today is the day that I can start showing you some of the things that have kept me so tied up the last few weeks.
First up is a little Pink Paislee. This paper is from the Spring Fling line. This line is so versatile! I have really loved working with it and I hope you all will too.
I am going to share a different project each day so I hope you will check back tomorrow to see a little more Pink Paislee yumminess.
Well, at least I hope. I need to get the okay on this one, but wanted to share it here now because I just finished it up and am really loving it. Plus, it feels like forever since I share a project photo.
I am calling this a "decor board" and am hoping to turn it into a monthly class series. Think of it as a dimensional themed open face photo frame. Each month I plan to offer a board in a theme for the following month or upcoming holiday, etc. This one for instance, would be the Mother's Day themed board. The boards will be full of dimension, layers, and embellishments. Each month's board will be same size so that they can be displayed in a shadowbox frame or simply on an easel, you would just simply change them out when the mood strikes. The photo mats will be constructed so that the photos can be changed out easily, like a photo frame, which means the board can be used year after year as holiday and seasonal decor.
As soon as I know when (or if) this will be offered at For Keeps Sake, I will post the details on my teaching page. As with all of my local classes, they will make it to Heart In Hand Scraps shortly (hopefully) after they are offered locally.
