I had the chance to spend almost an entire day in my office this week, and with the bonus of actually being caught up on some client orders for once I got to just hang out and play!
I had a sickie parked on the couch outside my office, so I knew whatever I wanted to make would have to consist only of whatever items I could pull from my
ridiculously large completely normal sized stash;)
First project – I started with an unfinished wood tray
(oops, forgot to take a before!)
Gave it a couple of coats of dark chocolate-brown craft paint on the outside and a couple of coats of pure white on the inside. Since I didn’t really have an agenda or a finished product in mind, I just starting laying out some paper that I love, and came up with a Sweet Baby Girl layout. This tray holds a 5 x 7 photo.I added some extra sparkleand some sweet flowers with pink argyle brad centersSweet & simple!
Second project is another set of tumbled tile coasters. I made a couple of sets for myself and a girlfriend (here) and I can say with certainty that they hold up very well. Mine has been well used for a few weeks now, and show no signs of wear. Which makes me very happy because I have been chomping at the bit to make some more!
I made these the same way, using a fab paper from Theresa Collins that I have been dying to use. I love almost all of her lines, but this in particular has me written all over it!
Both of these are now available over on the Scrap Me Baby fb page.
I have a couple more projects on the go and, I am happy to report my sickie is feeling just fine again:)
Thanks for coming by!
