Free Digital Kit

I haven't blogged for a while, I have been busy creating Halloween projects. (Be sure to check back next week, I think you are going to like them.)

Anyway, while cruising the Internet this week, I found this super cute, totally free digital kit. It's perfect for boys or men and I think you are going to love it



This kit is available only from Peppermint Creative

You do have to sign up with them but its free. After you have downloaded the kit, you will need to unzip it but its really easy to do and there is a step by step tutorial if you need it.

Then check out their home page. They have some really cute and fun ideas.

Have fun today!!!

Wild Thing Mini Album- lot of photos!

Here is my Wild Thing Mini Album. I love the way it turned out. I used paper from Die Cuts With A View and my silhouette.



Tons of photos. They are not the best but its so hard to take a picture of a photo.
















What makes this mini album so fun is all the layers!

New Kits Available- Achieve

Ahh, it's time again, Back To School. To help celebrate, I have put these kits together. (I love the colors, they are so hip and new!) Help get your kids excited about school while decorating your shelf or mantle at the same time.

You could also use these to decorate a small "homework area" and leave them up all year.


ABC Letters are $15



Achieve Blocks $12



School Saying $10
*Or order all three for $32

Don't have kids going back to school? Display the Achieve blocks to help you remember a goal you might be working on. Achieve would also be great for those New Years Resolutions you know you will be making in just a few short months.

Wood Letter How To

Here is a helpful step by step guide to applying paper to the wood letters.

1. Decide what side of the paper you want showing on your letter.



2. Turn your paper upside down. (the side you want showing on the letter should be facing your work surface. Turn your letter upside down on the paper,(the letter looks backwards now), and trace it with a pencil.



3. Cut the letter out of the paper with a good pair of scissors. Lay it on the wood to make sure it fits. If you need to trim a little go ahead and do so now.

4. Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge on the wood. Put the paper on the wood and smooth it out using a Popsicle stick, a credit card or a scrapper.



5. After the paper has dried, take a small piece of sandpaper and sand the edges of the letter. This will smooth out the loose edges of the paper and it will lay flat with the edge of the wood.




6. Dust off any small pieces of paper and lint.

7. Ink the edges of the letter (if you like the distressed look) and then go over the top of the letter with another thin layer of Mod Podge. Set aside to dry.


7. Once the letter is dry you can add Ribbon and other Embellishments.

8. Enjoy your wood letters
