Butterfly Zipper Pouch-TOW

Welcome ThermOWeb fans, this is Jenifer here with you today to share this fun little zip bag with you today.  Nothing says spring to me more than butterflies so I went to the internet and found some beautiful butterfly images that I printed out on the HeatnBond EZ print Inkjet Sheets.

Watercolor Cards-DCWV

Welcome DCWV fans! It’s Jenifer from the DCWV Social Media Design Team!    Have you seen the new Paint & Create items that DCWV has come out with?  Well let me just tell you they are awesome.  They have these super cute card packs that come with watercolor and a brush.  Everything I needed came in the package ready to go, just add water.


Here is a trio that I created on my lunch break.


I absolutely love the heavy weight of the paper, the paper didn't buckle or warp when the water was added to it.  Here I let the colors mix together and run down the card.  I also loaded the brush and flicked a few fun spots on it.

With this one I let the colors come together and while it was still wet I applied a little bit of table salt to give an amazing marble effect.

I stuck with one color here with a simple swiggle line and then a few splatters.  I thought it would be fun to give the envelope a little touch of paint as well.  Love how it turned out.  The best part about these fun cards is that every single one of them will be unique.

I tied them all up with a beautiful Silk ribbon bow and now my cards are ready to be sent off.

So Lucky Gift Bag-TOW

Welcome Therm O Web fans, this is Jenifer here with you today to share a cute little gift bag that my 12 year old daughter made to hand out to a couple of her friends for St. Patrick's day.  Of course I couldn't say no to anything crafty related and pretty much everything was done by her while I just supervised.



Using the Fabric Fuse PeelNStick Sheets she adhered the green polka dot fabric to one side then using a die cut machine cut out the hearts.  Peel off the backing and attach it to a muslin bag.  Then using the Deco Foil Liquid adhesive go around the edges or create your own pattern.  Once the Liquid adhesive is dry then lay out the Deco Foil colors of your choice to give your project a little bit of sparkle.  She used both the gold and the green to make her clover really pop.



Add an embellishment to the center of the clover, here she added some flowers but you could add buttons or anything else you could think of.  A fluffy bow with some gold sparkle to hold a fun little tag and your ready to fill your fun little bag with a little gift or some candies.

I hope you have enjoyed our little project today, sometimes you just have to sit back and let your little ones just create.  She is so proud of how this turned out and that to me is priceless.

Clover Pin-May Arts

Welcome May Arts fans :)  This is Jenifer here with you today to share a quick fun St. Patrick's Day Clover Pin with you.  If you are anything like me I always seem to forget that little piece of green so I thought that I would be a little more prepared this year.


The first thing I did was use a little bit of alcohol ink to change the color of the Silver Sequin Hearts.  After the ink was dry I placed them on a scrap piece of felt.  I took some embossing powders to an old pin that was laying around and placed it in the center of my clover.  I just love the texture of the center.  Before hot gluing the center in place I took a length of pearls and looped them around a couple times and placed them under the pin.  Lastly I took the paper cord and folding it in fourths I twisted it around itself giving a nice little stem.  I glued it to the back of my felt along with a pin back.  Now the Pin is ready to wear.

Here is the fun pin at a different angle, don't you just love the sparkle?

Here is the pin attached to one of my garments.  How fun. 

May Arts Ribbons Used:
A478-15-31 Silver Hearts

Thank you so much for taking a look at my project today.

Pinterest Inspiration-May Arts

Welcome May Arts fans. Here is my interpretation of your selection.  My main focus was on the altered flowers. 

I used a couple different colors of sprays and let them blend together on the paper and matched them up with some sprayed flowers.  I think that I am going to frame  this piece and hang it up in my craft room.

Here is a close up of the cluster.
